Jaguars | Don't want Toby Gerhart at 300 carries

Thu, 31 Jul 2014 06:51:53 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart is expected to be spelled by RBs Jordan Todman, Denard Robinson and Storm Johnson so he doesn't reach the 300-carry plateau.

Fantasy Tip: Gerhart is still expected to be the leading back and makes a RB3 with upside. Todman, Robinson and Johnson will battle in camp for the backup role and could be worth an RB5 spot.

Jaguars | Toby Gerhart to be workhorse

Sun, 20 Jul 2014 14:39:27 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart will be the team's workhorse, according to offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch.

Fantasy Tip: You shouldn't get too excited about this revelation because the team has to be in the game or have a lead in order for him to run the ball consistently. It was reported earlier this offseason that he'd receive 12-15 carries per game. That is still likely, with a possibility for more. He's a good RB3 with upside.

Jaguars | Toby Gerhart wants to carry offense

Wed, 18 Jun 2014 16:36:06 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart is hoping to be the Jaguars' version of "Beast Mode" this year. "Toby is very light on his feet. ... He averaged 4.7 yards per carry (1,305 yards, 276 carries) his four years in Minnesota. He was playing behind one of the greatest backs in Adrian Peterson, so he wasn't going to lose a lot of tread off his tires," general manager David Caldwell said. Gerhart plans to spend the next four weeks before training camp acclimating to the Florida humidity, and he hopes the improved offensive line will help him be successful in 2014.

Fantasy Tip: The main factor working in Gerhart's favor, other than finally having the opportunity as a leading back, is the fact that his legs are fresh. He'll receive the lion's share of the touches for an offense that could surprise some folks. That's enough to be at least a top-tier RB3 with upside.
