I can't get carried away with Todd Gurley's hot start, though. A closer look at his three NFL seasons through three games: 2015: 66.3 PPR FPTS, 6.4 YPC, 2 total TDs 2016: 34.2 PPR FPTS, 2.9 YPC, 2 total TDs 2017: 85.1 PPR FPTS, 3.8 YPC, 6 total TDs What's made the difference in terms of fantasy production is scoring opportunity, as Gurley has eight touches within three yards of the goal line this year, compared to one (2015) and four (2016) in the other two sets. This feels a bit Melvin Gordon 2016-ish, except that their offenses aren't remotely comparable. It's encouraging from a "barely RB1" value standpoint, but I can't elevate Gurley further.

Todd Gurley's 37.9 PPR fantasy points last night were the 10th-most by any running back in a Thursday game since at least 1950, and they were the third-most by a running back on Thursday Night Football since it began in 2006, trailing Kareem Hunt's 45.6 in 2017 Week 1 and Brian Westbrook's 40.0 in 2008 Week 13.

49ers K Robbie Gould on missed extra point: "I just rushed it," Gould said. "I missed it, I made a mistake. Obviously, I wish I didn't do that. We probably should be playing in overtime right now. But at the end of the day, they're counting on me to do my job and I didn't make the extra point that I needed to make."

Rams RB Todd Gurley, on the encouragement of being in a system that sets this offense up for success: "It feels good, man. It feels good. We haven't been able to put up points like that since Marshall and them left. ... I'm just happy for Goff, being able to go out there and sling it. Especially after the tough year he had last year. I'm happy to see him progress."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Rams NT Michael Brockers, on the struggles on defense: "There's so much we can clean up. The points that they scored was unacceptable. Not saying we feel like we're just the greatest defense ever, but we feel like we're better than that."

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Aaron Donald, asked if this is the best Rams offense since he has been here: "For sure. McVay -- whatever he's doing, just keep doing it."

49ers LB NaVorro Bowman said he believed the turnaround after playing about 80 snaps on Sunday had an impact on his performance against the Rams on Thursday: "I think it had a huge effect on my body personally," Bowman said. "I have done everything to get my body as close to ready for this game as possible but we signed up for this so the schedule says we have to play these games but there's no way I felt the way I felt on Sunday today."

Rams CB Nickell Robey-Coleman, on the defense being on the field for so long late in that game, on such a quick turnaround: "We had to dig deep. We had to dig really deep. At that point in time, it ain't no pointing fingers, none of that. 'Let's just get it done.'"

The 49ers came out of Thursday night's game pretty banged up as LB Brock Coyle, FB Kyle Juszczyk and S Jaquiski Tartt are all in the concussion protocol. DE Tank Carradine also suffered an ankle injury and RB Carlos Hyde is dealing with a hip issue though he finished the game. The good news? They have some extra time to rest and recover before their Oct. 1 game at Arizona.

The Niners have received strong performances from their defense in week 2 and from the offense in Thursday's night's loss. Now they have to figure out how to put it all together.

ESPN Stats and Information  

Per the Elias Sports Bureau, the Rams 107 points this season are the most through three games in NFL history by a team to finish dead last in scoring the previous season. The previous "record" belonged to the 1954 New York Giants, who scored 106 points in their 1st three games.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

This was as wild and as thrilling a Thursday night game as one can imagine. The Rams were sloppy on special teams and not good on defense, but Jared Goff and Todd Gurley were both very good. And if defense and special teams are your biggest concern as a Rams fan, that is a good thing.

Nick Wagoner ESPN Staff Writer 

The 49ers showed plenty of resolve in what turned out to be an entertaining Thursday night shootout against the Rams. But they will regret some missed chances early in the game to cash in an early takeaway for a touchdown. And the defense, after a strong outing against the Seahawks, appeared to be feeling the effects of playing nearly 80 snaps in that game. At 0-3, the Niners still have a lot to fix before Kyle Shanahan can get his first victory as a head coach.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Todd Gurley fantasy owners are getting more production in the pass game due to Sean McVay's offense. Through three weeks, Gurley has 13 receptions and has added two touchdowns as a receiver out of the backfield.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

Aaron Donald, fittingly, may have ended this game with his first sack of the season.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

This defense has been on the field a loooong time. And it's a Thursday night game. They have to be gassed.

Alden Gonzalez ESPN Staff Writer 

The Rams today: Fumbled punt, fumbled kickoff, and allowing the 49ers to recover an onside kick. Unbelievable.
