Touchdown won't redeem Toby Gerhart's value


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/29/2014) Even though he finally scored a touchdown Week 4 at San Diego, Toby Gerhart's stock is hardly on the rise. Other Jaguars running backs -- namely, Denard Robinson -- continue to cannibalize his opportunities, to the point that coach Gus Bradley had to confirm Monday that the depth chart hasn't changed.

When the Jaguars get inside the 5-yard line, he's the back most likely to get the ball, but if the distribution of carries between him and Robinson over the last couple weeks says anything, he's not valuable enough in the middle of the field to provide anything apart from that.

And the Jaguars don't spend much time inside the 5-yard line.

With 26 combined carries over the last three weeks, Gerhart might still be overowned at 79 percent. He's looking like nothing more than a bye-week replacement going forward.


Toby Gerhart not fallen behind Denard Robinson on depth chart, coach says


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Although Jaguars running back Denard Robinson played a career-high 36 snaps in Week 4, head coach Gus Bradley told reporters that Toby Gerhart has not fallen behind the second-year player from Michigan on the depth chart, per ESPN on Monday.

"Just trying to utilize everybody’s strengths," Bradley said. "You see the receivers move around, too. We’re trying to utilize their strengths. That’s been kind of our philosophy."

Robinson's offensive snaps were one less than Gerhart (21) and Jordan Todman (16) combined. Gerhart also went to the bench for one drive after losing a fumble on his first carry. As expected. Robinson took a backseat to Gerhart in goal line carries on Sunday and only averaged 2.8 yards per attempt. Gerhart scored a touchdown but was not any better, averaging 3.2 yards per attempt on 10 carries.

Toby Gerhart held in check Week 4


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart was held in check again Week 4.

Gerhart was limited to just 32 yards on 10 carries. Things did not start well for Gerhart. On his first carry of the contest, Gerhart ripped a 10 yard run, but fumbled at the end of the play. That would be his longest carry of the day. Gerhart would manage to sneak in a 1 yard touchdown, but that was about it. He also caught one pass for 8 yards.

Gerhart will take on the Steelers Week 5. 


Jaguars healthy heading into Sunday against Chargers


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) The Jaguars have issued an injury report Friday dominated by probables for their matchup Sunday in San Diego.

Wide receiver Marqise Lee (hamstring) and tight end Mickey Shuler (illness) have been ruled out. The probables are running back Toby Gerhart (ankle), tight end Clay Harbor (calf), wide receiver Allen Hurns (ankle), defensive tackle Roy Miller (ankle), tackle Austin Pasztor (hand), linebacker Paul Posluszny (ankle) and fullback Will Ta'ufo'ou (ankle).


Searching for a path to a productive Toby Gerhart game


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) If Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart is to put together his first productive Fantasy game of the season, he is probably going to have to find a way to do it through the air with the Chargers on the schedule for Week 4.

The Chargers have allowed just 61.3 yards per game on the ground against opposing running backs, and Gerhart seems unlikely to change that trend. Gerhart is averaging just 2.4 yards per carry and has only 82 yards rushing through three games heading into a game where the Jaguars are almost certain to be playing from behind.

Where Gerhart might have some room to succeed is in the passing game, if the Jaguars choose to use him in that way. He has topped out at just two receptions in each of the first three games, but could have more success in Week 4 against a Chargers defense that is allowing 9.3 receptions and 80 yards per game through the air to running backs.

At this point, Gerhart is starting to cede playing time in Jacksonville, so he needs to produce just to save his job. There is no guarantee he will do that in Week 4, but he might get the shot as the team tries to ease Blake Bortles in. Gerhart is obviously just a low-end Fantasy option for Week 4. 


Jaguars see some changes -- and success -- in backfield in Week 3


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart has fallen flat on his face in his first three games as a feature back, and he started ceding playing time in Week 3 against the Colts.

Gerhart played 66 and 70 percent of the team's snaps in the first two games of the season, respectively, but that number dipped all the way to 50 percent Sunday. And, while Jordan Todman has served as the team's primary backup (21.1 percent of the snaps, first two games) it was converted college quarterback Denard Robinson who saw a step up in playing time in Week 3.

Robinson played 33 percent of the team's offensive snaps, after playing in just 11.4 percent in the first two games. And, though he did not have a high bar to clear, Robinson established new career-highs in carries (eight) and rushing yards (33) in the game.

The Jaguars gave Gerhart a three-year contract this offseason, but the early returns have not been promising; just ask any of Gerhart's Fantasy owners. Gerhart was drafted 41st overall on average this season, but might just be droppable at this point. Keep an eye on the team's playing time distribution, because Robinson might be an interesting sleeper if the team makes a change. 


Who was Blake Bortles throwing to?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/22/2014) The Jaguars made the inevitable move to put Blake Bortles in Sunday, and he should remain the team's starting quarterback for the foreseeable future. What does that mean for the team's skill position players?

Bortles took over at halftime and led the team on three scoring drives in his first six times out. He showed a proclivity for big plays -- two touchdowns -- and big mistakes -- two interceptions -- and made full use of the team's weapons. He targeted eight players in the game, and it broke down like this:

Cecil Shorts: eight targets, five receptions, one touchdown (7 yards); Allen Hurns: three targets, one reception, one touchdown (63 yards). one interception; Allen Robinson: eight targets, five receptions, one interception; Jordan Todman: one target; Mickey Shuler: one target; Will Ta'ufo'ou: one target, one reception; Denard Robinson: one target; Toby Gerhart: one target, one reception


Toby Gerhart does little Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart didn't not perform well Week 3 against the Colts.

Gerhart had nine carries for 32 yards. He also caught two passes for 31 yards during the contest. With his team down 30-0 at half, Gerhart didn't get many opportunities in the running game. He'll look for more Week 4 against the Chargers. 


Jaguars should have most of their probable players Week 3


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) The Jaguars should have most of their probable players Week 3 against the Colts.

Alan Ball, Chris Clemons, Johnathan Cyprien, Toby Gerhart, Winston Guy Jr., Paul Posluszny, Cecil Shorts III and Mickey Shuler are all active and ready to go. 


Jaguars issue Friday injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/19/2014) The Friday injury report issued Friday by the Jaguars is dominated by probables.

Included among them are cornerbacks Alan Ball (abdomen) and Jeremy Harris (illness), defensive end Chris Clemons (illness), safety Johnathan Cyprien (concussion), running backs Storm Johnson (ankle) and Toby Gerhart (foot), safety Guy Winston (illness), wide receivers Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Allen Hurns (ankle), offensive lineman Austin Pasztor (hand), tight end Mickey Shuler (heel) and linebacker Paul Posluszny (knee).

The team has ruled out wideout Marqise Lee (hamstring) and deemed tight end Clay Harbor as questionable.


Can't trust Toby Gerhart right now


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) The Colts have already given up three touchdowns to running backs through two weeks, and it's doubtful they'll be much of a roadblock for many ground games this season.

Toby Gerhart is likely the exception based on his performance thus far.

Through two games, Gerhart has 25 carries for 50 yards and four catches for 23 yards. He's dealing with an ankle injury suffered in Week 1, but his offensive line is miserable.

I had high expectations for Gerhart based on a high-volume workload giving him the chance to succeed. Maybe that happens when Blake Bortles takes over, but right now you can't start him in any format.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.


Jaguars dealing with injuries after Week 2


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) The Jaguars came out of their first two games with a number of injuries, but their wounded players are making progress as of Monday, reports ESPN.com.

Wide receivers Marqise Lee (hamstring) and Allen Hurns (ankle), both of who were injured in Week 2 against Washington, are hoping to practice Wednesday, though Lee seems more likely to do so at this point. Running back Toby Gerhart is also expected to practice Wednesday with a foot injury. 


Toby Gerhart disappears in blowout loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart was almost nonexistent in Week 2, in a 41-10 loss in Washington.

With the Jaguars down big, Gerhart got little work in the running game, finishing with 8 yards on seven carries. He added just two receptions for 9 yards as well, in the blowout loss.

Gerhart has rushed for just 50 yards through his first two games, while averaging a paltry 2.0 yards per carry. He will look for better success in Week 3 against the Colts. 


Ankle not an issue for Toby Gerhart


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart is active and in uniform, as expected, for Week 2 against the Redskins. He was considered probable for the game after getting through the week in practice with an ankle injury.

Trio of offensive players scratched by Jaguars for Sunday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/12/2014) Tight end Clay Harbor (calf), running back Storm Johnson (ankle) and tackle Austin Pasztor (hand) have been ruled out by the Jaguars for the Sunday game in Washington. Cornerback Alan Ball (abdominal) is questionable after sustaining an injury Friday, but he told the team website he expects to play against the Redskins.

Among those injured who are also likely to play are tight end Marcedes Lewis (knee), cornerback Dwayne Gratz (ankle), running back Toby Gerhart (ankle), wide receiver Marqise Lee (hamstring) and defensive lineman Abry Jones (abdominal).

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/10/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart did not practice Wednesday due to his sprained ankle, reports the Florida Times-Union. Jacksonville is preparing for Sunday's visit to Washington.

Gus Bradley provides updates on injured players


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/8/2014) Jaguars coach Gus Bradley updated the status on a few of his team's injured players when talking with reporters Monday. The Jaguars play the Redskins in Week 2.

He said running back Toby Gerhart has an ankle sprain and will be limited early in the practice week. 

Bradley said tight end Marcedes Lewis could be limited Wednesday due to a knee injury, but he should play Sunday. Linebacker Paul Posluszny (knee) should practice Wednesday as well.

Bradley added safety Johnathan Cyprien is going through the concussion protocol, and wide receiver Cecil Shorts -- who was inactive Week 1 due to a hamstring injury -- will run Tuesday. The team will determine Shorts' status later in the week.


Toby Gerhart in slo-mo in Jaguars loss


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/7/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart struggled to pick up yardage in part because of his O-line in the team's Week 1 loss at the Eagles. He had 12 yards on seven carries before limping off the field in the first quarter with an ankle, then got back in the game to finish with 42 yards on 18 carries (2.3 yards per carry) with two catches.

Gerhart led the Jags in carries and was actually second in rushing average behind Denard Robinson, who had 8 yards on three carries.

Jacksonville plays at Washington in Week 2 -- the Redskins allowed 103 rush yards to Arian Foster on 27 carries in Week 1.

Toby Gerhart an intriguing Fantasy possibility in Week 1


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) Bullish back Toby Gerhart has been wearing an NFL uniform for four years, but he is beginning his rookie season in a manner of speaking on Sunday. He is set to make his debut as a starter with Jacksonville after cooling his heels on the sideline behind future Hall of Famer Adrian Peterson since 2010.

Gerhart is among the great unknowns heading into the clash against host Philadelphia. He showed his readiness to start in 2013 by averaging an eye-popping 7.9 yards per carry with Minnesota.

Though he boasts virtually no speed, he should help the Jaguars move the chains against a strong Philadelphia run defense that ranked fourth in the NFL at 3.8 yards allowed per carry last year and is certainly a scoring threat in goal-line situations. Gerhart is rated about 20th by CBSSports.com senior Fantasy writers Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard among all running back options in Week 1. He could be a worthy play as a second back. He might just begin a breakout season against the Eagles.


Toby Gerhart looks sharp in second preseason game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart ran the ball hard during Friday's dress rehearsal game against the Lions in Detroit. Gerhart played into the third quarter. He took 10 handoffs for 32 yards, averaging 3.2 yards per attempt. He was not targeted in the passing game. Gerhart has 16 carries for 51 yards through two exhibition games.

Toby Gerhart: My hip felt fine in preseason game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(8/15/2014) The Jaguars have reported that potential featured back Toby Gerhart had no problem with his hip in the Thursday night preseason game against Chicago. He managed 19 yards rushing on six carries, though one of his attempts traveled 18 yards.

Fantasy owners shouldn't be nervous about Toby Gerhart


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/15/2014) It was one preseason game, but everyone saw what I saw in Toby Gerhart when I wrote about him back in May. He's strong, he's got great vision, he's got great hands, he'll deliver a handful of 10-plus-yard runs and ... he's probably the slowest starting running back in football. 

Gerhart's weakness is his speed but it doesn't make him a bad Fantasy option. Playing in the pros is all about having athletic talent and the mental capacity to handle what comes with it and what's asked of you. Making it big in Fantasy is having the opportunity to put up numbers. There's a difference -- and through two preseason games there's no reason to believe Gerhart's workload is in any danger of slipping because no one else in J-ville has the talent to match up to Gerhart's total package.

I still like Gerhart a lot as a pick between 30th and 40th overall in every single draft.  


Toby Gerhart makes Jacksonville debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart finally made his Jacksonville debut on Thursday against the Bears.

On the opening play of the game, Gerhart took a handoff for a gain of 6 yards. He then ripped an 18-yard run up the middle on the second play of the second drive. He was limited to two series with the first-team offense and finished with six carries for 19 yards, averaging 3.2 yards per attempt. He also caught the only pass thrown his way for a gain of 8 yards.
