Injuries dealt a brutal blow in Week 3 and after a week of doing the weekly waiver wire duel and making hard decisions, it’s time to make the most crucial decision of them all–setting your lineups! We’re talking about the Running Backs.

The running backs position has already taken a hit with some key injuries flipping the table on some running back committees like the Colts, while others have become more difficult to call, like the Lions. Start the wrong guy and it could be the difference of 20-30 points. Let’s see which ones did NOT make the grade for Week 3.

Todd Gurley, Atlanta Falcons vs. Chicago Bears

Well after a few weeks, what’s the verdict on Gurley so far? At least Atlanta is giving him the ball, which is more than we can say about Devonta Freeman in his last few years with the team. Gurley has 35 carries on the season and has just 117 and one touchdown. But the Falcons love to pass more than they run, and Gurley has not been a part of the passing game yet. Those are strong numbers that can assure that he will be the three down back. But being a three down back against the Bears doesn’t accomplish much since they’ve kept the damage that backs do to a minimum.
