5. Todd Gurley
Gurley is very good but not great. The Rams let him go for a reason and it hasn’t hurt their offense at all. Meanwhile, the Atlanta Falcons struggled immensely in 2020 with Gurley directly responsible for one defeat. All he had to do was not score a touchdown. However, somehow he still got this wrong. But if we’re fair, that was a freak moment; however, overall he lacks the skills to be a game-defining star.
But that alone isn’t why he is on this list. Mistakes happen of course, but Gurley has a low yards-per-carry average. While his rushing numbers are still good, his overall game isn’t what it once was. There were question marks about Gurley’s ability after suffering knee injuries. The simple answer is that he’s definitely a solid running back with some skills, but isn’t at an elite level anymore.
