Toby Gerhart will reportedly line up at fullback some in 2015.
A year ago, the Jaguars signed Gerhart to a three-year, $10.5 million contract with the intent of making him their feature back. He completely face-planted, fighting a foot injury but also getting badly outplayed by Denard Robinson. Now the Jags are just looking for ways to get some kind of return on their investment. At best, Gerhart will fill a big back role in a committee and do some blocking. Mar 31 - 11:39 AM

Coach Gus Bradley indicated at the Combine that the Jaguars will retain Toby Gerhart for 2015.

Gerhart's 2014 was essentially lost before it got started, as he suffered a severe foot injury in Week 1 and ineffectively tried playing through it. He wound up averaging an anemic 3.23 yards per carry. "We saw him do enough good things on first and second downs that he’ll have a place with us," said Bradley. "He is a different style of back and we’re putting tougher an offense that best utilizes his strength."

Toby Gerhart rushed for eight yards on four carries in the Jaguars' Week 17 loss to the Texans.

He ends the year with 326 yards and two touchdowns on 101 carries (3.2 YPC), adding 20 catches for 186 scoreless yards. Signed to a three-year, $10.5 million contract last March, Gerhart entered the year as the starter. But thanks to ineffectiveness due to lower-body injuries, Gerhart was passed on the depth chart by Denard Robinson. Gerhart fell back into a sparingly-used third-down role behind Robinson before regaining the starting job after Robinson injured his foot prior to Week 15. Gerhart proved he’s nothing more than a complementary piece of a backfield. With a non-guaranteed $3 million salary in 2015, Gerhart is no lock to be back in Jacksonville.

Toby Gerhart (ribs) is expected to play Sunday against Houston.

He was limited in Friday's practice, but should be ready to roll against the Texans, rotating with Jordan Todman. Gerhart isn't a recommended DFS play.

Toby Gerhart rushed 12 times for 53 yards and a touchdown before leaving the Jaguars' Week 16 win over the Titans with a rib injury.

He added a seven-yard reception. Shaken up in the second half, Gerhart briefly played through what was billed as a rib "contusion," but was then ruled out late in the fourth quarter. He operated as the Jags' clear lead back before going down, but ceded some touches to Storm Johnson and Jordan Todman. Gerhart was feisty between the tackles, shedding defenders and showing off some spin moves. He looked miserably slow when the Jags tried to send him around the edge, however. Gerhart should be considered questionable for next week's finale against the Texans.

Toby Gerhart rushed for 54 yards on 13 carries in the Jaguars' Week 15 loss to the Ravens.

He caught two passes for nine yards. With Denard Robinson's (foot) season over, Gerhart got the start and out-touched Storm Johnson and Jordan Todman 15-6-4, respectively. It may have been the best Gerhart has looked all season, especially against Baltimore's stout run defense. Still, Gerhart is no fantasy option with the Jaguars struggling mightily to find the end zone. He'll be a mere RB3 on Thursday night against the Titans as we wrap up the Thursday Night Football season.

Toby Gerhart (ankle) is listed as probable for Week 15.

With Denard Robinson out for the year, Gerhart is expected to split carries with Jordan Todman and Storm Johnson. He isn't a Week 15 fantasy option.
Fri, Dec 12, 2014 06:11:00 PM

Jaguars OC Jedd Fisch said the running back load will be split between Toby Gerhart, Jordan Todman, and Storm Johnson the final three weeks.

Denard Robinson suffered a mid-foot sprain in Week 14 and is done for the season. Gerhart is the best bet for touches, but he hasn't had more than five carries in a game since late September. It's what the Jaguars signed him in the offseason for, though. Johnson will be active for the first time since Week 6. Todman will continue to handle third-down snaps. It's a fantasy situation to avoid.

Toby Gerhart has settled into a third-down role with the Jaguars.

Gerhart is covering punts, kickoffs and playing caddy to Denard Robinson. It's not what he or the Jags envisioned when they signed him to a three-year, $10.5M contract in free agency. Gerhart is back to playing the same role he had in Minnesota.
Mon, Dec 8, 2014 09:21:00 AM

Toby Gerhart rushed five times for 19 yards and caught two passes for 16 yards in the Jaguars' Week 14 loss to the Texans.

With Denard Robinson clearly hitting a late-season wall, the Jaguars have tried to get Gerhart more involved. He's done very little with his increased opportunities and is a weak handcuff for Shoelace owners down the stretch.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 04:44:00 PM

Toby Gerhart rushed for seven yards on five carries in Week 13 against the Giants.

He wasn't involved in the pass game, but replaced Denard Robinson in some third down situations. Gerhart remains just a low-volume change of pace in Jacksonville's offense. He can continue to be avoided in fantasy leagues.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 05:47:00 PM

Toby Gerhart rushed for 31 yards on four carries in the Jaguars' Week 12 loss to the Colts.

Gerhart added three catches for 19 yards. His big gain was an impressive 23-yard run on a zone run left for a first down into the open field. Other than that, Gerhart was kept held in check, along with Denard Robinson. Shoelace continues to dominate touches, leaving Gerhart useless in 12-team leagues.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 04:40:00 PM

Toby Gerhart rushed four times for two yards Week 10 against the Cowboys.

He was stuffed on 3rd and 1 and then 4th and 1 in the third quarter, and could not convert on 1st and goal from the one deep into garbage time. Denard Robinson came in on the next play to punch it in. Gerhart has seen his role in the offense evaporate, and no longer needs to be owned in 10- and 12-team leagues.
Sun, Nov 9, 2014 04:56:00 PM

ESPN Jaguars reporter Mike DiRocco suggests Toby Gerhart may be ready to share more of the workload in the backfield moving forward.

Gerhart is coming off his best game of the season when he piled up 68 total yards on five touches against the Bengals. And DiRocco says "word out of London" is that Gerhart appears to be back healthy and "running angry." Denard Robinson has handled 60 touches the past three games, so it's conceivable the Jaguars may want to press the brakes a bit on Shoelace's workload. Robinson remains the clear-cut No. 1 back, but Gerhart could siphon 6-8 touches.
Fri, Nov 7, 2014 11:56:00 AM

Toby Gerhart rushed for 19 yards on three carries in the Jaguars' Week 9 loss to the Bengals.

Operating as the clear No. 2 and third-down back to Denard Robinson, Gerhart added 49 yards on three catches. It was easily his most productive day as a Jaguar, as Gerhart picked up a couple big first downs on a 3rd-and-19 screen pass and a 3rd-and-1 late in the fourth quarter. Gerhart is healthy and comfortable as the change-of-pace to Shoelace. He's not worth owning in 12-team leagues.
