Fantasy Alarm
Jaguars head coach Gus Bradley told the media that RB Toby Gerhart could carry the ball 16-18 times a game in 2014. If Bradley sticks to his word then we can roughly project Gerhart to average around 70 yards per game, (15 carries multiplied by his career average yards per attempt of 4.7), a per game average that would have had Gerhart near the top 10 among running backs last season (11th-Lions Reggie Bush, 71.9 yds/g, 12th-49ers Frank Gore, 70.5). Add in that former Vikings running back has proven that he can also be threat in the passing game, as well. Gerhart may have the physical look of a goal line like back, but don’t let that fool you into thinking he’s a plodder. Gerhart, in limited action last season, showed fantasy owners he can break them off something nice as he had four runs of 20-plus yards in just 36 rushing attempts, while leading all NFL running backs (min. 30 carries) with a 123.4 elusive rating and 3.78 yards after contact per attempt proving that he has the potential to be a top-10 fantasy running back talent wise. Obviously, though, Gerhart will need a lot of things to go in his favor, including overcoming running behind a Jags offensive line that allowed their running backs to be stuffed at or behind the line of scrimmage a quarter of the time last year (3rd highest overall team percentage) in order to be a top-10 fantasy running back, but it at least appears the talent and potential are there to possibly reach that type of production fantasy wise.
 
  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
I don't think Gerhart is a talented runner and the Jags terribly overpaid for his services, but if he sees 250-300 carries as the Jaguars are projecting, he's going to finish among the Top 25 fantasy running backs. His lack of speed and playing on a bad team significantly handicap his upside.
Gore was the 13th ranked fantasy running back in 2013, but he turns 31 years old and has 2,187 career carries. I am interested to see if his role is scaled down this year, the 49ers have rookie RB Carlos Hyde competing for carries.

Gerhart is now a Jaguar and should get his chance to officially run the show. The GM said that Toby could see between 250-300 touches this season. If that happens, he should crack the top 20 for sure. IF that happens.
The 49ers learned early on last season that the game hinges on getting Frank Gore the ball early and often. I think he has one more good season before turning the reigns over to one of the young bucks.

Always good for 1,000 yards and near double digit TDs. If you have Gore as your bench RB for bye-weeks you are going to be a happy owner.

with a banged-up RB core, this 9er will have one more good year
  
Jon Collins
Fantasy Sports LR
It took me a while, but supporting cast and offseason conversation have me finally buying the 300 touch hype.
If you listened to my cliff year proclamations on Gore last year, I'll understand if you don't buy this but at 31 with both Lattimore (NFI) and Hyde clamoring for touches...
  
Brandon Funston
Yahoo! Sports
Got expected workload in W1 (20 touches), but not the production (57 YFS); JAC run blocking still an issue, as is Gerhart's tweaked ankle
 
  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
Am I the only one that buys into the bruising Gerhart being an effective poor man's Marshawn Lynch? Fine by me, I guess.
Gore is still the main man until he gets driven into the ground.
  
Pat Fitzmaurice
The Football Girl
He'll get lots of work, but his O-line sucks, and opponents will key on the run.
Has aged gracefully, though there were signs of a slowdown late last year.
  
Jeff Boggis
Fantasy Football Empire
Starting to warm up to Gerhart, but the though to Jacksonville playing from behind in most games is a concern. More value in PPR league format.
 
  
Raju Byfield

Toby Gerhart is a perplexing fantasy asset, on one hand he seems to be in line to be an every-down workhorse for the Jaguars, on the other hand however Gerhart is a middling talent on a team that will be trailing in many games limiting his weekly carries. Gerhart may also lose his job to a free agent addition or even rookie Storm Johnson. Gerhart is no more than an RB3 in standard leagues but is a RB2 option in PPR formats.
Frank Gore is still a solid RB2 option despite his waning involvement in the passing game and the addition of Carlos Hyde and a healthy Marcus Lattimore. The 49ers will ride Gore until the wheels fall off or until Hyde passes him on the depth chart.
  
Sablich Brothers
The New York Times
Build and skill set suits the workhorse role he should play in the Jags run-heavy system.
Age 31 season should bring in more of a shared workload this year.
  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Gerhart is a decent running back and versatile. The Jaguars are planning on using him extensively as their main back and 300+ touches is guaranteed if he stays healthy. His upside isn't great, but with that kind of work he'll be a solid contributor.
Gore will continue to lose some carries in an attempt for him to stay rested for the long haul. Last season in his last 11 games (including playoffs) Gore ran for 3.8 yards per carry and 3 TDs and caught just 11 passes. Carlos Hyde is waiting in the wings.
  
Tozzi Brothers
Legion Report
There are high expectations for Toby Gerhart around the NFL in 2014. With next to no competition behind him, Gerhart should be considered a three-down workhouse and will eat up carries in Jacksonville this season. Multiple sources have confirmed that there is a real shot at Gerhart hitting 300 carries in 2014. Gus Bradley is looking to replicate the team he helped build in Seattle – a conservative passing scheme, ferocious defense and a workhorse in the ground game. “Knowing he was going to have to pass protect, catch the ball out of the backfield and get tough yardage, he was a really good fit for us,” Bradley spoke on RB Toby Gerhart. “Gus comes from the Seattle Seahawks’ model of playing good defense, relying on the run game where Marshawn Lynch was their ‘Beast Mode’ out there. Hopefully, I’ll be the ‘Beast Mode’ down here for the Jaguars,” said Gerhart. Gerhart isn’t part of an explosive offense, but he is one of our favorite RB2 in fantasy football for this season and should be drafted with confidence. Jordan “The Todfather” Todman remains Geharts’s handcuff and should be viewed as a “change of pace” back.
Each year fantasy owners question Frank Gore’s age and ability and each year he churns out another solid season. At age 31, Gore not only has age and an extensive amount of carries to his name, but he also has a number of youthful RB’s waiting in the wings. The 49ers round out their rushing attack with Gore, Carlos Hyde and Marcus Lattimore. Numerous reports have surfaced that Gore will receive 50+ fewer carries in 2014. We feel that Gore is still serviceable, but when plugging him in expect a lower ceiling player to go against opponents. We consider Gore a low-end RB2 in 2014.

He should get the carries, but is he built to be a full time back? I am not a big believer, not at the price.
