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.

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart is projected to receive 12 to 15 carries per game, according to beat writer Ryan O'Halloran.
Fantasy Tip: That would put him at the minimum for the 240-300 carries he has been projected to receive in earlier reports. Gerhart is a high-end RB3 with upside.

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.

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.
