The first time Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley II faced the vaunted Seattle Seahawks defense this season was back in Week 5, at home, and he turned his 16 touches into a mere 50 total yards as the Rams lost 16-10. It was the lone game this season Gurley failed to reach double-digit fantasy points in PPR formats and gave his managers some degree of concern for the Week 15 rematch in Seattle, especially with this being the fantasy playoffs for most. After all, the Seahawks, despite missing key defenders, entered play permitting the fourth-fewest fantasy points to running backs this season.
