Jaguars make mistake by signing Toby Gerhart
I don't quite understand what the
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.

Darren Sproles would prefer to be released
"The good thing is none of the teams I'm told they're talking to are terrible. It's more than two. I feel I should have more of an idea later on today."
Don't expect Sproles to get his wish. If the Saints can get something for him, they will.

Making sense of the Chargers running back corps
The Chargers seemingly did this to secure depth at the position and to safeguard against not having a back in case
The feeling here is that Mathews will remain the primary rusher for the Chargers. The team went 6-0 in games he had at least 20 carries (8-2 in games where he had at least 16 carries), a stat the coaches will have a hard time ignoring. Brown could keep Mathews from 24-plus carry games like he had toward the end of last season but we'll still see Mathews dominate. Brown should also reduce Woodhead's touches, particularly after he faded down the stretch last season.
But even with this piecemeal workload from Mathews and Woodhead, it's tough to envision Brown getting enough work to be the same kind of helpful Fantasy rusher he was last year. I might take him with a mid-round pick.
