Jaguars | Toby Gerhart optimistic heading into season

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 15:29:20 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart and the team are optimistic about his 2015 season after struggling mightily as the main back in his first season in Jacksonville in 2014. The Jaguars drafted RB T.J. Yeldon this year and he appears to be the feature back sooner than later, but the team hasn't given up on a role for Gerhart. General manager David Caldwell said Gerhart looks quicker and faster than ever before this year. The Jaguars think new offensive coordinator Greg Olson's offense fits Gerhart's strengths better and will allow him to hit holes quicker. So far in camp, Gerhart has caught the ball consistently and broken off some nice runs in drills. Gerhart could be productive as a receiver, but Yeldon and Gerhart could share carries with RB Denard Robinson.

Fantasy Tip: Gerhart probably doesn't have any business being owned in traditional leagues and certainly not in 10-team leagues, but he could earn a bigger role depending on how Yeldon pans out in his rookie season. If you do own Gerhart, it should come as a late-round handcuff to Yeldon.

Jaguars | Toby Gerhart to be third-down back

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 19:41:11 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart suffered a Week 1 injury in 2014 to ruin his first chance to be an every-down back. He is likely to see most of his reps as a third-down back in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Gerhart wasn't that attractive last season, even as an every-down back, but he is especially less attractive with significantly fewer reps. Fantasy owners in leagues of 12 or more teams will want him in the later rounds for depth, but that's about it.

Jaguars | Jacksonville wants to run more

Tue, 26 May 2015 15:20:45 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RBs T.J. Yeldon, Toby Gerhart and company could see a lot of action this season as head coach Gus Bradley has said the running game will be a point of emphasis in 2015.

Fantasy Tip: Yeldon is expected to start with Gerhart, Denard Robinson and others playing complementary and secondary roles. If the Jaguars run as much as Bradley indicates they could, Yeldon could be in for a nice rookie season.

Jaguars | Toby Gerhart to see time as FB

Tue, 31 Mar 2015 11:40:17 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart is expected to line up occasionally as a fullback in 2015 after the team released FB Bradie Ewing.

Fantasy Tip: Although Gerhart could wind up seeing short-yardage work in goal line scenarios, a move to fullback effectively kills whatever little fantasy value he had left heading into 2015. The backfield situation in Jacksonville, with Gerhart competing for touches with Bernard Pierce, Denard Robinson and Storm Johnson, is one to avoid for fantasy football owners.

Jaguars | Bernard Pierce could face suspension

Fri, 20 Mar 2015 10:27:04 -0700

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Bernard Pierce will face a suspension for violating the league's personal conduct policy with his DUI arrest this week. Pierce will be given a chance to compete for playing time with RBs Toby Gerhart, Denard Robinson and Storm Johnson in 2015. Pierce has struggled in the NFL since his rookie season in 2012, and he's mainly been hampered by a list of injuries including back, ankle, knee, shoulder, thigh, toe and head ailments. Pierce has a chance to be part of a three-man rotation, especially if the Jaguars use Gerhart more as an H-back.

Fantasy Tip: After averaging 4.9 yards per carry his rookie year, Pierce has averaged just 2.9 and 3.9 yards per carry in 2013 and 2014, respectively. Behind an inexperienced offensive line and quarterback in a three-man rotation, he definitely shouldn't interest fantasy owners in standard leagues in 2015.

Jaguars | Toby Gerhart to be moved around

Mon, 02 Mar 2015 16:15:33 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart is expected to be moved around in 2015 as an H-back and as a running back, which means the Jaguars are expected to be in the running back market this offseason.

Fantasy Tip: Gerhart experienced an injury-riddled 2014 season, and he was a severe disappointment for those fantasy owners that expected too much out of him. Gerhart is unlikely to be the Jags' primary back in 2015, but he could be useful as a goal-line back in a shared workload picture.

Jaguars | Jaguars keeping Toby Gerhart?

Thu, 19 Feb 2015 21:22:21 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart will likely be back with the team in 2015, according to head coach Gus Bradley. "Toby's done a nice job for us,' Bradley said Thursday, Feb. 19. "I know people may consider him a third down-type back or a short-yardage, situational back but we saw him do enough good things on first and second downs that he'll have a place with us. He is a different style of back and we're putting tougher an offense that best utilizes his strength."

Fantasy Tip: Gerhart battled injuries and poor play in his first year with the Jaguars, and even if Bradley does find a better way to utilize his skills next year, it is unlikely Gerhart will ever be the team's primary back with Denard Robinson showing plenty of promise. At best, Gerhart is worth taking a flier on late in drafts.

Jaguars | Toby Gerhart injures ankle

Sun, 28 Dec 2014 11:50:52 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in the team's Week 17 game and is considered questionable to return.

Fantasy Tip: Gerhart probably will enter next season behind Denard Robinson on the depth chart. Gerhart probably would only be an option in the later rounds of drafts if he does not have a starting job.

Jaguars | Toby Gerhart listed as probable

Fri, 26 Dec 2014 13:34:02 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (ribs) was limited during practice Friday, Dec. 26, and is listed as probable for Week 17.

Fantasy Tip: Gerhart should continue to receive a majority of the carries this week but will be facing a tough Houston Texans defense. Owners should be able to find better options to use on FantasyScore this week.

Jaguars | Toby Gerhart still limited

Thu, 25 Dec 2014 18:00:11 -0800

Jacksonville Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (ribs) was limited in practice Thursday, Dec. 25.

Fantasy Tip: Gerhart managed just 19 yards on five carries in Week 14 against the Houston Texans, and he isn't worth taking a chance on when the teams meet again in Week 17.
