Jaguars | Looking to feature Toby Gerhart

Mon, 24 Mar 2014 07:51:01 -0700

The Jacksonville Jaguars are looking to use RB Toby Gerhart as their feature running back. "'That's what we hope to see," head coach Gus Bradley said. "We like what we saw on tape."

Fantasy Tip: This is great news for his fantasy value, but we wonder if he has the essentials to be an effective feature back. The team could bring in another back to share carries, as well. Look at him as an RB3 with upside.

Vikings | Unlikely to keep Toby Gerhart

Sat, 08 Mar 2014 16:33:48 -0800

The Minnesota Vikings are not expected to be able to re-sign impending free-agent RB Toby Gerhart, and FB Jerome Felton offered his feelings on the matter. "Probably pretty low," Felton said about the chances Gerhart returns. "Just having playing behind (RB Adrian Peterson), I assume he wants to go somewhere where he can get more touches."

Vikings | Adrian Peterson questionable

Fri, 20 Dec 2013 12:50:51 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (foot) returned to practice in a limited fashion Friday, Dec. 20, but is questionable for Week 16 against the Cincinnati Bengals. "Based on what we saw (Wednesday), we should be fine. Unless something comes up that I don't foresee, he should be ready to go," head coach Leslie Frazier said. Peterson said he is regaining strength in his foot and he feels better. Frazier is optimistic that RB Toby Gerhart (hamstring) will play, too.

Fantasy Tip: AD needs to be in your lineup with all the marbles on the line in Week 16, even if he is somewhat limited and yields some snaps to Gerhart.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson likely out

Sun, 15 Dec 2013 05:58:25 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (groin, foot) is likely out for the teams Week 15 game. Peterson may push to play and may even work out before the game, but will almost certainly be out.

Fantasy Tip: With Toby Gerhart likely to be out as well, Matt Asiata is likely to carry the load for the Vikings. With only three career carries, look elsewhere.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson to be game-time decision

Fri, 13 Dec 2013 11:24:29 -0800

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said RB Adrian Peterson (foot) will be a game-time decision in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles. "He looked far better than I anticipated," Frazier said. "It was impressive, when you consider the initial diagnosis. He's unique."

Fantasy Tip: If AD starts, get him into your lineup. If he doesn't and Toby Gerhart (hamstring) plays, Gerhart isn't a bad replacement as an RB2 or flex. If neither Peterson nor Gerhart suit up, you can forget about using Matt Asiata.

Vikings | In wait-and-see mode with Adrian Peterson, Toby Gerhart

Thu, 12 Dec 2013 10:48:17 -0800

Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said the team is in wait-and-see mode on RBs Adrian Peterson (foot) and Toby Gerhart (hamstring) for Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles, and the team isn't optimistic that either back will be able to play. "No, not at this stage. We're getting Matt Asiata ready to roll," Musgrave said.

Fantasy Tip: It's not looking good for AD or Gerhart. The final determination will come down to if either can practice Friday. If you own one or both, Asiata is not an option to start if you want to advance in the fantasy playoffs. Look elsewhere if neither runner plays this weekend.

Minnesota Vikings RBs Adrian Peterson (foot) and Toby Gerhart (hamstring) will not practice Wednesday, Dec. 11, but the team hopes they can return by Friday, Dec. 13. If neither running back can play in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles, they'll be forced to start RB Matt Asiata. RB Jerome Felton would be another option in the backfield.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson out of walking boot

Wed, 11 Dec 2013 10:21:58 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (foot) is out of his walking boot and will attempt to practice Friday, Dec. 13. However, the team is more optimistic that RB Toby Gerhart (hamstring) will be able to play in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles than Peterson. Peterson will have to practice Friday in order to play Sunday.

Fantasy Tip: Be fully prepared to bench AD this weekend. If he plays, there's a good chance he'll be limited in some fashion. To be safe during the fantasy semis, you'll probably want to go in another direction.

Vikings | More optimistic about Toby Gerhart than Adrian Peterson

Wed, 11 Dec 2013 09:44:41 -0800

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said the team is more optimistic about RB Toby Gerhart (hamstring) being able to play Week 15 than they are about RB Adrian Peterson (foot) but that Peterson is a fast healer and is determined to play. Neither is expected to practice Wednesday, Dec. 11, but the team is hoping they will be able to practice by Friday, Dec. 13.

Fantasy Tip: Owners will have to monitor the practice participation of both players to get a better idea on who will be able to play. Peterson should be in starting lineups if he is able to play. Gerhart should be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option if Peterson misses the game.

Vikings | Adrian Peterson has no tears in foot

Mon, 09 Dec 2013 11:42:02 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Adrian Peterson (foot) said an MRI exam on his sprained foot has shown no ligament tears, and he also ruled out a Lisfranc injury. Peterson will undergo a CT scan but expects to play in Week 15 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: The fact remains that AD is dealing with a sprained foot, which will be tough to come back from for Week 15. Even if he winds up playing against the Eagles, he'll likely be limited. Toby Gerhart should be added everywhere as insurance or in the event that Peterson is out this weekend.

Vikings | Toby Gerhart shines in relief

Sun, 08 Dec 2013 14:34:33 -0800

Minnesota Vikings RB Toby Gerhart carried 15 times for 89 yards and a 41-yard touchdown in the Week 14 game against the Baltimore Ravens, coming on for an injured RB Adrian Peterson (ankle).

Fantasy Tip: Gerhart was highly touted out of Stanford, but he has been in the shadow of Peterson for his entire career. If Peterson is forced to miss time, Gerhart could be a sneaky fantasy player in the coming weeks. But there is no indication that Peterson's injury will keep him out.

Vikings | Fresh Toby Gerhart entering contract year

Vikings | Concerned about Toby Gerhart's fumbling issues

Mon, 24 Sep 2012 13:54:36 -0700

Minnesota Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier said the team has some concern over RB Toby Gerhart's three fumbles in Week 3 because they do not want him to lose confidence. "We're going to need Toby to make big plays for us throughout this season and we've got to keep his confidence up," Frazier said. "We know he's capable of holding onto the football. He usually does a good job with that. We don't want him to go in the tank and get down."

Vikings | Toby Gerhart sees seven touches

Sun, 09 Sep 2012 17:44:35 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Toby Gerhart had six carries for 18 yards in Week 1 against the Jacksonville Jaguars, and he added one reception for eight yards.

Fantasy Tip: Gerhart was expected to split carries with RB Adrian Peterson (knee), but Peterson ended up galloping 17 times for 84 yards and two scores despite suffering torn knee ligaments in Week 17 last season. It appears Gerhart should only be used as a 'flex' fantasy option in the deepest of leagues unless Peterson suffers some sort of setback.

Updating a previous report, Minnesota Vikings offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave said Tuesday, Aug. 7, that the team will "be a little more cautious" with RB Toby Gerhart and his workload.

Vikings | Toby Gerhart thinks Adrian Peterson will be ready

Mon, 23 Jul 2012 05:50:15 -0700

Minnesota Vikings RB Toby Gerhart said he thinks RB Adrian Peterson (knee) will be ready to play in Week 1. "I think (Adrian Peterson) will (play in the opener)," Gerhart said. "You can never be surprised with Adrian. The way he comes to work every day, the way he pushes himself - he was flying around, straight-line speed, moving out there, racing Percy up the hill, doing conditioning stuff ... I haven't seen him in a couple weeks now, but I'm sure he's continued to make leaps and bounds in progress, and I wouldn't be surprised if he's ready. You can never count Adrian out."
