2014 Outlook: Sleeper (undervalued)

Last updated on Jul-08-2014 by Daniel Kalles

BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR: Toby Gerhart signed a three-year contract worth $10.5 million and was anointed the starter. The Jags have been saying he will get anywhere from 15 to 20 touches per game and be an every-down back. Despite that, I wouldn't expect too much from Gerhart as the Jacksonville offense is pitiful and not much improved over last season when they were the second-worst rushing team in the NFL (rushed for only 1,260 yards). While Gerhart might help improve this, don't expect a major transformation. The former Stanford back is an adequate option, but would be best served putting up weak stats for another fantasy team. Gerhart is being drafted as RB24, but we prefer other players that are being drafted later -- namely Rashad Jennings, Pierre Thomas and Joique Bell.

Jul-31-14 Jaguars OC Jedd Fisch would prefer RB Toby Gerhart doesn't handle 300 carries

Most of the stuff printed about Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart this offseason has been about how he is going to absolutely dominate the touches out of Jacksonville's backfield. Three hundred carries seemed like a legitimate possibility by at least one beat writer just a few days ago. Today, offensive coordinator Jeff Fisch spoke with the media and came carrying a bucket of cold water. According to Eugene Frenette of the Florida Times-Union, Fisch said he "prefers" Gerhart not be a 300-carry player like Maurice Jones-Drew had been for the franchise. He wants backups such as Jordan Todman to pitch in as well.

Fantasy Analysis:

Certainly, Todman, Denard Robinson, and maybe Storm Johnson will get some work, but Gerhart is still the clear leader here. Don't confuse these comments as Fisch advocating for a timeshare. He's just saying that it's not going to be all Gerhart running with the rock, and that's fine. If he winds up with 250-275 touches, he'll be a stellar RB2 all the same.
