Competition for Jaguars' change-of-pace RB job?
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch mentioned Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson as change-of-pace backs to work behind Toby Gerhart in Jacksonville this season, and he seemed to be leaning toward Todman. 

"Those two guys are truly change-of-pace backs," Fisch said per the Florida Times-Union. "Jordan really intrigues us with his burst, speed and acceleration. ... I'm excited about Denard."

Fisch also mentioned rookie Storm Johnson but seemed to classify him as a backup to Gerhart. 

"Storm is going to run at the same speed as Toby and maybe a hair faster, but he's strong and really compact," Fisch said. "He has incredible vision and lower body strength."

Jaguars label Toby Gerhart as a 'workhorse'
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch referred to running back Toby Gerhart as "our workhouse" and should be their back for any situation they want to use him in. 

"Toby has the ability to do it all," Fisch said per the Florida Times-Union. "He can catch it well. He can pass protect well, and he's going to be in the game a lot -- third down, base downs, short-yardage, passing downs."

Gerhart has averaged 4.7 yards per carry in his career with 276 regular-season career carries.

by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Jaguars officialy signed 2014 second-round draft pick Marqise Lee to a contract, the team announced Friday. 

"We are excited to get Marqise's contract done as we head into training camp next week," Jaguars general manager David Caldwell said. "As I said on Draft Day, we are fortunate to have a player like Marqise. He's a playmaker that is a threat every time he touches the ball and has a good feel for the game. He has been working extremely hard this offseason and is looking forward to getting back on the field next week."

Lee was a three-year starter at Southern California and declared for the NFL Draft following his junior season. He concluded his career with 248 receptions for 3,655 yards (14.7 avg.) and 29 touchdowns. Lee owns 24 school records and five Pac-12 Conference marks.

Jaguars counting on Marqise Lee, Allen Robinson
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Jaguars have questions at receiver this season, reports ESPN.

Heading into the season, the only certainties based on experience are Cecil Shorts and Ace Sanders. After that, the rest of the group is unknown.

The report says it would seem second-round picks Marqise Lee and Allen Robinson would naturally be the next two, but both missed most organized team activities and all of minicamp with injuries. They're supposed to be fully cleared for camp, but they missed valuable time.

Next would be Kerry Taylor and Mike Brown, as well as undrafted rookie Allen Hurns. Justin Blackmon is suspended indefinitely.
