The Atlanta Falcons, led by Todd Gurley, were in the bottom five in rushing yards per game. While Matt Ryan had a solid season, the Falcons struggled to consistently move the ball. It wasn’t by a lack of effort that Atlanta ended among the worst rushing teams in the league.
They just couldn’t get anything going as they had the second-worst rushing yard average.
As a team, they averaged just 3.7 yards per rush. Murray, by himself, was at 4.5. He’s a solid, hard-nosed running back that could add a competent option to an offense that is just lacking a decent back.
For the Falcons to enhance their roster, they don’t need a Kamara-type talent. With Ryan and even Murray to go along with their receivers and potentially a beefed-up defense, they would capable to compete in the NFC South. They need Murray, not Gurley.
However, the Saints should never help the Falcons improve their roster, so forget we ever mentioned this one.
