POLL: Will Todd Gurley rush for 125+ yards in 4 consecutive games?

Before his team's bye in Week 6, St. Louis Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley had rushed for 146 and 159 yards in back-to-back games against the Cardinals and Packers, respectively.

While he didn't rush for as many yards as either of those two outings, Gurley continued to dominate on the ground in Week 7. Against the Browns last week, Gurley carried the ball 19 times for 128 yards and two touchdowns, the first and second touchdowns of his NFL career.

If Todd Gurley rushes for 125-plus yards in a fourth consecutive game, it will be the 13th time that it has been done in NFL history. The NFL record of consecutive 125-yard games is six (Chris Johnson, Eric Dickerson and Earl Campbell).

Over his past three games, Gurley has racked up a total of 433 rushing yards and two touchdowns on 68 carries (6.37 yards per carry) with six catches for 50 yards.

In his second career divisional matchup, Gurley will face the 49ers in Week 8. This season, the 49ers have allowed only two 100-yard rushers, both of which play in the division -- Chris Johnson (110 yards and two TDs) in Week 3 and Marshawn Lynch (122 yards and a TD) in Week 7.

A popular choice among our contributors in our weekly DFS Roundtable post for favorite DraftKings play of the week, Gurley is ranked second in my Week 8 fantasy football running back rankings behind only Pittsburgh's Le'Veon Bell.

Will Gurley rush for at least 125 yards in Week 8 against the 49ers to extend his streak to four games?
