1. Todd Gurley

Is there a need to explain why Todd Gurley is on top of this list when it comes to which Los Angeles Rams players should be used in fantasy football during Week 5 against the Seattle Seahawks? The former Georgia standout is playing at a MVP kind of level at the moment when looking at the level of impact he’s made for the Rams’ offense in four games.

In fact, if it wasn’t for Gurley elevating his game to a whole new level, there’s a good chance Los Angeles wouldn’t be sitting on top of the division with a 3-1 record at the moment. And if Gurley can lead the Rams to yet another victory on Sunday against the Seahawks, it’s only going to build that division lead even more if the Arizona Cardinals end losing as well.

To see Gurley bounce back from a disastrous sophomore season to already topping his touchdown total from a year ago has been beyond amazing for Los Angeles to see. After all of the frustration surrounding Gurley in fantasy football last year, the owners that were willing to take a chance on the Rams running back are seeing their risk payoff in a big way, and hopefully that will continue on Sunday when facing the tough Seahawks’ defense.
