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. Dec 18 - 11:27 PM

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.
Dec 14 - 4:38 PM

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.
Dec 12 - 6:11 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.
Dec 11 - 9:18 AM

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.
Dec 8 - 9:21 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.
Dec 7 - 4:44 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.
Nov 30 - 5:47 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.
Nov 23 - 4:40 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.
Nov 9 - 4:56 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.

Nov 7 - 11:56 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.
Nov 2 - 4:52 PM

Toby Gerhart (foot) confirmed he emerged from Sunday's loss to the Dolphins without setbacks.

Finally healthy for the first time since Week 1, Gerhart rushed four times for 10 yards. He's firmly behind starter Denard Robinson, who is the first Jaguar to put together back-to-back 100-yard rushing games since Maurice Jones-Drew in 2011. Although Gerhart's foot is right, he's little threat to Shoelace right now and should have been dropped in standard formats weeks ago.
Oct 27 - 10:33 AM

Toby Gerhart rushed four times for 10 yards in Jacksonville's Week 8 loss to the Dolphins, adding a three-yard reception.

Active for the first time since Week 5, Gerhart operated as Denard Robinson's caddie. With the Jags through the first 50 percent of their schedule, Gerhart is sitting on a 2.55 YPC. He's out-lived his 10-12 team league usefulness.
Oct 26 - 6:53 PM

Toby Gerhart (foot) is listed as probable for Week 8.

Gerhart figures to take over Storm Johnson's role in Jacksonville's offense, with Denard Robinson operating as the Jaguars' lead back and Jordan Todman playing in passing situations. Gerhart is an RB5 in 14- and 16-team leagues.
Oct 24 - 3:12 PM

Toby Gerhart (foot) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Barring a setback, Gerhart will be good to go for Sunday's game against the Dolphins. However, he should be operating as no better than the No. 2 back after Denard Robinson had the first good game from any Jags runner in Week 7. Gerhart isn't on the re-draft or daily-league radar for Week 8.
