FANTASY FOOTBALL THURSDAY NIGHT LIGHTS:
Gurley. Gurley. Gurley (Week 15)
BEAST DOME NATION.
Todd Gurley has been featured heavily on my BUST List Week 9 – Week 13. Over that span he averaged 52 rushing yards and only scored 3 TDs, which averaged out to 9.9 Fantasy Points per game. The Haters who were there from the start, finally stopped their bickering when they saw I was right.
Last week Gurley did not make my BUST list, and as a result he turned his 1st half performance of 14 Yards to 140 Yards and 2 TDs.
Tonight is a different night. This is the Super Bowl for the STL Rams. They are home, they are on PrimeTime TV and maybe people will be watching. Let’s put it this way, there is no other NFL game to watch.
Easily the worst Thursday Night game of the season as far as talent goes with the Bucs traveling to STL to face the Rams. Here is what we should expect.
When the Bucs have the ball, you can expect the Rams defense to turn it up 5 notches. Like I said, this is their Super Bowl and they are coming off of a nice win against the Lions. The Bucs will try to get Doug Martin going, but it will not be easy as this Rams Defense will be playing quick. With no Vincent Jackson, you can expect Mike Evans to see a lot of targets. Sounds nice in theory, but the Rams Defense has a healthy Janoris Jenkins, and you can expect the Rams to be prepared to eliminate Mike Evans.
When the Rams have the ball I have two words for you. Todd. Gurley. The Rams will run the ball 40+ times with Gurley if the could, instead he will probably see 20+. The result should be 100+ Rushing Yards and a TD, definitely a possibility of 2.
In the end, this is the Rams Super Bowl. Which means the Rams will come out to play and beat the Bucs.
