Todd Gurley thinks he should go No. 1 overall in your fantasy draft
Todd Gurley is not lacking in the self-confidence department.
The Rams running back was asked where he should go in fantasy drafts in an NFL Network appearance, and he answered definitively.
“No. 1 overall for sure,” Gurley said, via Michael David Smith of ProFootballTalk.
Gurley did hedge a bit as he continued, conceding that Cam Newton and Antonio Brown also had a case.
“You maybe could choose Antonio Brown over me, but no one else. Maybe Cam. That’s it,” Gurley said.
At minimum, Le’Veon Bell and Adrian Peterson would have something to say about this, as would Michael Bennett. Still, Gurley has been working hard, dropping weight, and preparing himself for a big season. We’re not quite sold on him as a top overall pick in fantasy, though.
