Toby Gerhart carried the rock six times for a total of 19 yards in his new home with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact: Gerhart looked solid in his debut and showed some of his ability on a nice 18-yard run in the first quarter. He also caught one ball out of the backfield for 8 yards after stiff-arming Bears Safety Danny McCray to the ground. Gerhart will be the Jags 'bell-cow' and is currently being drafted in the beginning of the 4th round. He is ranked as FantasyPros' RB17.

Fantasy Impact: Toby Gerhart is getting back to practice today (8/12) after missing a little more than a week with a sore hip flexor. Jags beat writer Ryan O'Halloran said that Gerhart will likely get "5-6 carries" against the Bears this coming Thursday (8/14). Jags fans and fantasy owners alike will get their first look at Jacksonville's new 'bell-cow' RB. Gerhart's ADP has slipped out of the third round in the last two weeks and he's now being drafted at the beginning of the fourth round.

Fantasy Impact: We don't have much information about the severity of Gerhart's hip flexor injury, but we do know two things. First, the Jags have been very cautious when their players come down with soft tissues injuries. Secondly, we know the Jags want Gerhart to be their 'bell-cow' RB and want him to be 100% healthy when September 7th rolls around. Why risk Gerhart injuring his hip flexor any further by practicing/playing in the preseason? This is a situation to continue to monitor, but if Gerhart shows he's 100% by the end of August, his late-3rd round ADP could be excellent value for an RB who will be force-fed the football.

Fantasy Impact: Toby Gerhart not playing this coming Friday isn't too big of a deal this early in the season. The team is likely just playing it safe with the 27 year old RB. If anything, it allows the Jaguars to give RBs Jordan Todman, Storm Johnson, and Denard Robinson more work.

Fantasy Impact: Toby Gerhart's injury sounds minor and the team is just being cautious. With the new season still a month away, this injury doesn't harm Gerhart's fantasy stock whatsoever. Continue to draft him near the 3rd/4th round turn.

Fantasy Impact: Gerhart's leg "tightness" is very minor and doesn't impact his fantasy stock in any way. The 27-year-old RB could be a great value given his expected workload (20 carries/game) and late-3rd round cost. He's an RB2 with a low-end RB1 ceiling.

Jaguars offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch doesn’t envision 300-carry season for starting free-agent running back Toby Gerhart. Fisch called Gerhart and second-year veteran Jordan Todman “a pretty good one-two punch,” and added that the Jaguars like how second-year veteran Denard Robinson and rookie Storm Johnson are running in camp. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: Gerhart should still see 15-20 carries a game and if he stays healthy will be one of the biggest fantasy sleepers at RB in his first season with the Jaguars. Gerhart should be considered a high-end RB2 with potential to crack the top-10 at the position.

#457592989 / When Gus Bradley left Seattle to become the Jaguars head coach, he could not have envisioned the Jaguars ranking in the bottom five in rush attempts as they did last year. That ranking was a by-product of two primary factors: (1) the team trailed — and lost — often and (2) their rushing attack was inefficient. Beginning the year with an eight-game losi...
