Denard Robinson the Jaguars running back to own


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/19/2014) After serving as just a change-of-pace option for the first six weeks, Denard Robinson became the focal point of the Jaguars running game Week 7 against Cleveland, and based on how he performed in the role, he's a good bet to keep it going forward.

He ran 22 times for 127 yards and a touchdown, with a long of only 20 yards. That's a good thing in this case. It means he didn't owe the majority of his yardage to a single play in which he happened to break free. He was just a consistent contributor out of the backfield.

That's more than anyone can say for Toby Gerhart, the team's intended starter at running back. Gerhart, who was sidelined for Week 7 with a foot injury, ran for fewer yards in five weeks of starting (123) than Robinson did in just this one. The Jaguars knew there had to be a better answer, even experimenting with rookie Storm Johnson, and may have finally found it in Robinson.

Injured or not, Gerhart is just a waste of a roster spot in Fantasy, and though Johnson has scored a touchdown in two straight games, his 2.3 yards per carry during that stretch shows he's no real threat to Robinson. The Jaguars really don't have anything to lose by giving the second-year player an extended look, so he should be a priority off the waiver wire this week.


TD highlights meager game by Jaguars RB Storm Johnson


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) What Jaguars running back Storm Johnson contributed most of the game Sunday against Cleveland was more like a drizzle than a storm. But he did enjoy one highlight.

Johnson iced the victory with a 3-yard touchdown run with 4:35 remaining in the game. He was otherwise overshadowed by breakout back Denard Robinson. Johnson finished with 16 yards on six carries.

He will try to bring more to the table if given the opportunity when Jacksonville hosts Miami in Week 8.


Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart a no-go for Sunday game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/17/2014) What was feared is now reality - Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart has been ruled out for the Sunday game against Cleveland with a foot injury.

The setback continues a poor start to the season for Gerhart, who has been out of practice throughout the week after missing the game last Sunday at Tennessee. He has rushed for just 126 yards on 48 carries for a 2.6 average.

Gus Bradley has announced that the absence of Gerhart will result in Storm Johnson and Denard Robinson splitting the featured back duties with Jordan Todman playing on third downs. per the Florida Times-Union.


Storm Johnson facing easier matchup in second start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/16/2014) Jaguars running back Storm Johnson didn't blow anyone away in his first start, but he should continue to see a decent role in Week 7 against the Browns, and could be in line for a better performance this time around.

Johnson rushed for just 21 yards on a career-high 10 carries against the Titans last week, but faces an easier matchup Sunday. The Browns are allowing 4.8 yards per carry to opposing running backs, compared to 4.0 for the Titans. The Browns are also allowing 21.6 Fantasy points per game to running backs, the eighth-highest total in the league.

The Jaguars' running game has been a disaster all season, so we shouldn't expect a huge showing from Johnson even as his role increases. This is a bit of a better matchup, though, and he looks like the primary option in the running game, even getting work on the goal line last week.

Though he shouldn't be considered a must-start option by any means, Johnson can be viewed as a bye-week replacement or Flex option for Week 7. 


Jaguars planned to give Storm Johnson only 10 carries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) Jaguars rookie running back Storm Johnson was never supposed to get more than 10 carries in his first start Sunday at Tennessee. Coach Gus Bradley told the Florida Times-Union that "our whole intent was to get Storm 10 carries and he got 10 carries." Johnson ran for 21 yards and a touchdown.

Running back Toby Gerhart missed the game with a foot injury. He'll be evaluated Wednesday.


Storm Johnson doesn't do enough


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/12/2014) Earlier in the week, I expressed optimism about Storm Johnson getting an extended look in the Jaguars backfield, calling him a potential lottery ticket just because he could have the job all to himself if he proved he deserved it.

He didn't Week 6 at Tennessee, picking up just 21 yards on his 10 carries, the longest going for 7. He also had one catch for minus-4 yards. He did cap the team's first drive with a 1-yard touchdown run, but it was all downhill from there. By the end of the game, the Jaguars were relying more on Denard Robinson in the backfield.

So against a defense that entered the day ranked 26th against the run and with Toby Gerhart sidelined by a foot injury, Johnson had all of 11 touches. That's hardly the makings of a bell cow.

It was a worthy gamble given the opportunity, but I'm thinking you can send Johnson back to the waiver wire.


Storm Johnson scores in first career start


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Getting his first start Sunday against the Titans, Jaguars rookie running back Storm Johnson was mostly ineffective, totaling 17 yards on 11 touches. But he scored on a 1-yard run early in the first quarter, his first NFL touchdown.

Johnson ran 10 times for 21 yards and caught his only target for minus-4 yards. He'll face the Browns in Week 7.


Jaguars name RB Storm Johnson starter for Week 6


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) With Toby Gerhart inactive due to a foot injury, the Jaguars have named Storm Johnson the starting running back for Week 6 against Tennessee, the team announced. Johnson, the rookie out of UCF, entered the season as the fourth-string running back. The move does not come as a surprise, especially since the seventh-round pick rushed for 27 yards on four carries in a loss to Pittsburgh last week.

Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart a no-go for Week 6


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) As expected, Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart was officially ruled inactive for Sunday's contest at Tennessee in Week 6. Gerhart has been bothered by a foot issue since the start of the season. Storm Johnson is expected to get the start in his place.

10 injured Jaguars cleared for Week 6


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) The following players on the injury report have been ruled active for the Jaguars on Sunday against Tennessee: Ryan Davis (shoulder), Dwayne Gratz (head), Clay Harbor (back), Allen Hurns (foot), Storm Johnson (ankle), Marqise Lee (hamstring), Roy Miller (ankle), Paul Posluszny (knee), Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Dekoda Watson (shoulder).

Jaguars enter Week 6 relatively healthy


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Outside of Toby Gerhart (foot), the Jaguars enter Week 6 at Tennessee relatively healthy. Gerhart was the only play on the final injury report ruled out for Sunday.

The following players have been ruled probable: Storm Johnson (ankle), Marqise Lee (hamstring), Cecil Shorts III (hamstring), Allen Hurns (foot), Clay Harbor (back), Ryan Davis (shoulder), Dwayne Gratz (head), Roy Miller (ankle), Paul Posluszny (knee) and Dekoda Watson (shoulder).


Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart officially ruled out for Week 6


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/10/2014) Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart was unable to practice Friday and was officially ruled out for Week 6 at Tennessee, the team announced. Gerhart has been bothered by a foot issue since the start of the season. The team will likely turn to Storm Johnson, Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson on Sunday, per ESPN.

Storm Johnson a potential lottery ticket?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/9/2014) With Toby Gerhart failing to live up to expectations, averaging just 2.6 yards per carry through five games, the Jaguars are planning to mix it up at running back Week 6 at Tennessee.

That can only be good news for rookie Storm Johnson, who impressed with 27 yards on four carries in his first career game Week 5 against Pittsburgh. Coach Gus Bradley was enthusiastic about him at Monday's press conference, and it's not like he has any clear choices otherwise.

If Johnson gets the majority of the carries in Week 6, he could end up being that player everybody targets on the waiver wire in the days to follow. The Titans have been terrible against the run this year, allowing 136.8 yards per game, seventh-most in the NFL.

You might want to go ahead and beat the rush to the waiver wire now, just in case the best-case scenario comes to pass. That doesn't mean you should start Johnson this week, but just because of how little the Jaguars have, he does have some lottery-ticket potential in Fantasy.


Report: Jaguars RB Storm Johnson destined for more carries


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Jaguars rookie running back Storm Johnson might get a shot to take the NFL by storm starting Sunday against Tennessee, according to the Florida Times-Union.

Johnson appears destined to receive extended playing time after impressing Gus Bradley in his NFL debut in Week 5. The seventh round pick rushed for 27 yards on just four carries in the loss to Pittsburgh after missing the start of the season to an ankle injury.

Jaguars featured back Toby Gerhart has proven disappointing by averaging just 2.6 YPC and scoring one touchdown.


Jaguars impressed with Storm Johnson's NFL debut


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley told reporters during his Monday press conference that running back Storm Johnson displayed the best instincts of all the team’s running backs, according to ESPN.

The seventh-round rookie was inactive for the team's first three games while recovering from an ankle injury. He was active in Week 4 but did not see the field. Johnson received the first carries of his NFL career Sunday, taking four handoffs for 27 yards in a Week 5 loss to Pittsburgh. He also ripped a 9-yard run, which was wiped out due to a holding penalty.

"I thought he did a good job," Bradley said. "I know he came out with his ankle [slightly hurt] but I think they re-taped it, but we got him some more reps in there [after getting the ankle re-taped]. His objective is we've got to gain trust in him. He had a couple of good weeks of practice. We gave him an opportunity and we'll evaluate it from here on."


Speculating on Jaguars' backfield


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Fantasy owners have little reason to view the Jaguars backfield optimistically, but you can't just ignore them, can you?

The Jaguars' running backs have combined for just 3.0 yards per carry on the season, with the majority going to the ineffective duo of Toby Gerhart and Denard Robinson. At this point, the team might be willing to try anything to jumpstart the running game, which is why Jordan Todman and Storm Johnson saw bigger roles in Week 5 against the Steelers.

Todman actually saw the field more often than any other running back, but was used just once in the running game, on a carry that was negated by a penalty. Johnson played just 12 percent of the team's snaps, though that wasn't far off from Gerhart -- the starter -- who played 18 percent of the snaps. Robinson rounded out the group with 34 percent of the snaps played.

There is nobody in Jacksonville you should consider a starting option at this point. Heck, in 10-team leagues, there might not be anyone even worth owning here. However, in deeper leagues, there might be some value in speculating on Todman, Johnson and Robinson, just in case one of them shows signs of life. At this point, that's all it would take. 


Jaguars RBs banged up, but expected to practice Wednesday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Jaguars running backs Toby Gerhart (foot), Jordan Todman (ankle) and Storm Johnson (ankle) are all expected to practice Wednesday, according to ESPN. The trio combined for 42 rushing yards during a 17-9 loss Sunday vs. Pittsburgh.

Jaguars RBs combine for 42 rushing yards in Week 5 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Jaguars couldn't get much of a rushing attack going during a 17-9 loss Week 5 vs. Pittsburgh. 

Starting running back Toby Gerhart turned in another disappointing performance, rushing for 9 yards on four carries. He has just 123 rushing yards through five games.

Backup running back Denard Robinson wasn't much better Sunday, rushing for 6 yards on three carries. 

Surprisingly, the Jaguars leading rusher was rookie Storm Johnson, who received the first carries of his NFL career Sunday. He rushed for 27 yards on four carries.

Gerhart added one catch for 20 yards and Robinson had two catches for minus-1 yards. The Jaguars are back in action Week 6 at Tennessee.


Is there anything worthwhile in the Jaguars backfield?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) The Jaguars used three running backs in Week 5 against the Steelers, as the team continues to search in vain for some kind of spark out of the backfield. Can anything be salvaged from the combination of Toby Gerhart, Denard Robinson or Storm Johnson?

Gerhart has been an unmitigated disaster since signing with the Jaguars as a free agent, which has opened a chance for the unheralded guys down the depth chart to earn playing time. Unfortunately, Robinson continues to show little life, as he rushed for just 6 yards on three carries, with -1 receiving yards as well. At this point, neither looks like the answer.

Someone Fantasy owners might want to keep an eye on over the next few weeks is rookie seventh-round pick Storm Johnson. Johnson was Blake Bortles' teammate at the University of Central Florida, and looked alive in his first chance to play Sunday. He carried the ball just four times for a team-high 27 yards, before leaving due to an ankle injury. That ankle injury might be what derails his chance to usurp the role, though it remains to be seen if it is a significant issue.

At this point, Johnson is only an intruiging option by default; he isn't Gerhart or Robinson. He also has not proved anything, and might be just as useless as the two guys who have failed before him. However, with how valuable any running back who gets playing time is he is at least worth monitoring, to see how he might figure into the team's plans.


Storm Johnson likely to play in Week 5


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/4/2014) Jaguars running back Storm Johnson is likely to see his first game action of the season Sunday in the team's Week 5 matchup with the Steelers, the Florida Times-Union reports.

"Today was OK, solid for him, but I thought Wednesday and Thursday were really good," head coach Gus Bradley said after Friday's practice. "So he’s kind of stacked them up. I would look to see him getting some playing time."

The seventh-round rookie was inactive for the team's first three games while recovering from an ankle injury. While he was active in Week 4, he didn't play.

"I want to do whatever I can to help the team," Johnson said. "I’ve been playing my role, listening to the coaches and learning my assignments so I can learn my P’s and Q’s for when I’m out there. I’m a shifty guy that’s big. I can’t say how I’ll be, because I haven’t played in a real game yet, but I can’t wait."
