Rams want C.J. Anderson back in 2019
Based on a variety of factors, including his knee and his conditioning, Todd Gurley and former free-agent pickup C.J. Anderson are expected to split carries. That was the case in the NFC title game win over the Saints, and it should be the case on Sunday. According to Rams running backs coach Skip Peete, they essentially told Gurley this two Sundays ago.

Nerdy Football Analysis: Gurley could lead the Rams in rushing and be the better fantasy back but it won’t be because he’s getting all the carries. The Rams insist that Gurley is 100 percent healthy but it’s hard to buy that line of thinking. He’s had plenty of time to get his conditioning to a level to play the majority of snaps. IF the Rams are simply going to transition to a two-man committee, this will but a damper on Gurley’s fantasy value in 2019.
