Todd Gurley suffered through a roller coaster season with the Los Angeles Rams in the 2019 NFL season. After an offseason full of questions about the health of his knee and whether he would ever be the same superstar running back again, Gurley actually made the questions worse heading into this offseason.

Even though he showed flashes of his former self late in the season, the year as a whole brought up more questions. Sean McVay looked hesitant to utilize him heavily and even when he gave him more opportunity, Gurley didn’t always take advantage of it.

On the season in 2019, Gurley ended up carrying the football 223 times for 857 yards and 12 touchdowns. He also caught 31 passes for 207 yards and another two scores. Those numbers were not what fans had come to know and love about Gurley.

Los Angeles has quite a few questions surrounding them this offseason. Can Jared Goff still be the elite quarterback that many proclaimed him to be in 2018 when he led them to the Super Bowl? Will Gurley be able to bounce back with a bigger role in 2020?

All of that being said, let’s dive in and take a look at three reasons the Rams should expect a bounce-back season from Gurley in 2020.
