Named NFL AP Offensive Rookie of the Year (2015) Gurley’s rookie campaign in the NFL was a successful one. He appeared in just thirteen of the sixteen Rams games but still established his credentials as a future star in the NFL. He posted 1,106 yards (1,011.3 m) rushing to lead all rookie running backs in 2015. He also led rookie RBs (running backs) in rushing attempts (229), rushing touchdowns (10), yards per carry (4.8 or 4.4meters per carry), and yards per game (85.1 or 77.8meters per game). He finished third in rushing among all NFL RBs and did more than enough to earn honors as the Associated Press Offensive Rookie of the Year.

His numbers in his first NFL season were outstanding, separating him from his fellow rookies and placing him on the road to future greatness.
