Jags thoughts on Toby Gerhart are on the money
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

We've heard and read a lot about what the Jaguars are expecting from Toby Gerhart, the latest of which being that the team figures he'll get more yards after contact than Maurice Jones-Drew had last season. 

That expectation should happen as Gerhart consistently broke tackles over his limited reps with the Vikings since joining the NFL. In pretty much every game he had at least 10 carries in last year, Gerhart had at least one long run that involved him breaking tackles.

In a story soon to publish to CBSSports.com, I suggested Gerhart would be one of the best backs in the league if he was faster. He might have run a 4.4 in the 40-yard dash once upon a time but he doesn't have the same kind of jets as even the second-tier backs in the league. But he can and should do everything else for the Jaguars. I've warmed up to him as a middle- to low-end No. 2 Fantasy running back worth a Top 60 pick ... assuming the Jaguars don't draft another running back who could take work away from Gerhart.

Bradley says Toby Gerhart a three-down back
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley continues to heap praise on newly-signed running back Toby Gerhart.

Bradley said Tuesday at the NFL owners meetings that Gerhart can be a three-down back.

"He has the ability to play all three downs," Bradley said. "How many carries he gets ... we would like to run the ball over 40 percent of the time. There might be 28-30 carries in a game, and there aren't more running backs that carry more than 20 times a game. If he's a guy that is carrying it 15-16 times and with third down reps, 18 times. That's feasible. A strong possibility."

Gus Bradley: Toby Gerhart could get 15-20 touches regularly
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Jaguars coach Gus Bradley said newly-signed running back Toby Gerhart could regularly receive 15-20 touches per game, reports the Florida Times-Union. Bradley likes Gerhart's toughness and his ability as a receiver.

“He seems like a guy that the more he handles the ball the stronger he gets,” Bradley said. “He’ll pop one. He can make people miss. He has a toughness you can count on, can catch the ball and he’s great on third downs. He’s going to have a great opportunity.”

Jaguars make mistake by signing Toby Gerhart
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

I don't quite understand what the Jaguars were thinking in signing Toby Gerhart on Tuesday, the first day of free agency. Jacksonville gave Gerhart a three-year deal for $10.5 million with $4.5 million in guaranteed money.

Why?

Gerhart isn't a game-changing running back, and if you're going to pay for one why not get someone with upside. Gerhart doesn't have blazing speed or the ability to make people miss. He's not going to excel in the passing game. And Jacksonville's not going to give him the chance for many touchdowns.

If Jacksonville waited until the second week of free agency they might have been able to land a desperate veteran cast-off with more ability. But spending money on Gerhart makes little sense.

Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson will still get touches, and Gerhart's Fantasy value will be a flex option at best. We'll see what he can do with a bigger opportunity now that he's out of Adrian Peterson's shadow, and Gerhart does have five games with double digits in Fantasy points in the six games he's gotten double digits in carries over the past three seasons.

I just don't understand the move to sign him so early in the process. We'll see how it plays out, but he's not someone I want on my Fantasy team in 2014 outside of a late-round pick.

New Jaguar Toby Gerhart has mid- to late-round appeal
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

While Toby Gerhart won't be confused with Marshawn Lynch anytime soon, I get the sense from the Jaguars that they want a physical back as part of their rushing crew. Gerhart certainly provides that, plus he has good hands. 

As of now the primary rushing job in Jacksonville is wide open. Jordan Todman should be part of the crew and Denard Robinson might be given a chance to shine. But the Jaguars' decision to overpay for Gerhart ($4.5 guaranteed was too much) hints at just how much they value him and want him. It should lead to opportunities to at least work on early rush downs and short-yardage/goal-line situations. 

Gerhart enters the fray for me as a mid- to late-round running back pick up. I fully expect Jacksonville to draft another back and push Gerhart to a 10-touch per game role. That's why he's not going to go any higher. Expect him to begin the season on your bench.
