Fantasy Outlook 2010

Gerhart obviously will play behind Purple Jesus this year in Minnesota.  He should be the No. 2 back now that Chester Taylor is gone to Chicago, so he will get some chances.  He hasn’t really shown the ability to catch the ball out of the backfield, so that could limit the number of touches he gets.  However, coach Brad Childress has said that he will use some packages with both Gerhart and AP28 on the field as split backs or in the Power-I formation which could wreak havoc with some defenses.  But as long as Purple Jesus is healthy, it’s hard to forecast fantasy relevance for Gerhart this year.

The Unconventional White Running Back

Throughout the Combine and leading up to the draft, a number of people were saying that Gerhart has the talent to be a first-round running back…if he were black.  His numbers consisting of a 4.5 40 and a 38” vertical leap, along with his NCAA leading rushing numbers for mediocre Stanford last year, are incredible.  Now, we’re not going to get into any debate about race here, but we are highlighting this to showcase how good Gerhart is.  He could possibly end up as being the steal of the draft.

At 6’0” and 231-pounds, many people want to label him as a fullback, but he doesn’t see himself that way.  He has said he will battle for a spot as a running back, as he should.  He is a bulldozer but can cut on a dime.  His size may look like that of a fullback, but watch him in action, and you’ll see that teams can’t stop him even when they know he’s coming.

The Stanford Steamer

These days, most high school valedictorians are sending men to the moon, inventing crazy knuckling soccer balls and telling BP what to do about the oil spill.  Then there’s Stanford alum Toby Gerhart, who will spend the next few years of his life backing up one of the greatest running backs in the game today.

Gerhart has the resume and pedigree to complete such a task.  In his final year at Stanford in 2009, he led the nation in rushing yards (1,871) and both rushing and total TDs (both 27).  He ran for over 100 yards in 11 of his 13 games and dominated defenses that had a week to prepare for the one-dimensional Stanford attack.  He also finished second to Mark Ingram in the closest Heisman ballot in history.  In a game at USC, in which Gerhart ran 29 times for 178 yards and three touchdowns, unprecedented numbers in recent years for an opposing running back in the Coliseum, Stanford ran the Power-I 15 of its last 18 plays and still USC couldn’t stop him.  One of the Trojan linebackers even offered up this gem, “If you guys run ‘Power’ one more time I’m walking off the field.”  As Gerhart put it, “It was a classic.”

Injury Report


Even after carrying the ball an astounding 343 times in 13 games last year (26.4/game), Gerhart came out just fine and is ready for the 2010 season

Third-down Back

Toby Gerhart is right back where he used to be in Minnesota, a third-down back, except for this time he is getting paid on a three-year, $10.5M contract, to do it. He carried five times for 19 yards and caught two passes for 16 yards, mostly on third down.

“It’s what I did in Minnesota,” he said of his role. “I’m really comfortable with it.” Gerhart went on to say, “I’m trying to keep us on the field and move the chains.”

Pyro's take: That's great Toby, keep moving those chains and getting first downs, and catch a couple passes here and there, as the Jaguars shell-out over $10 million on your sorry-ass, I am sure your comfortable with that.

If you havent done so already, he makes for an easy-drop, except for Dynasty leagues.

Gerhart Downgraded

Toby Gerhart has been downgraded. According to John Oesher twitter, the "Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart (foot) did not practice Thursday. Will be monitored this week as week goes on."

Update: Oesher is now reporting that Gerhart will be out for Sunday.

Pyro's take: If your looking to play Gerhart, I would look to other plans. My opinion as of today is that he will be out for Sunday's contest and Storm Johnson will be his replacement.

Gerhart not going to be a 300 carry back

Jedd Fisch knows what Toby Gerhart brings, and wants to use it.

What the Jaguars’ offensive coordinator doesn’t want is to over-use Gerhart, which is why Fisch said Thursday he doesn’t see Gerhart being a 300-carry running back this season.

Twenty carries a game? Twenty-five?

While such workloads haven’t been uncommon for backs in the past – and while Gerhart perhaps would not mind that many carries – Fisch said that’s not the plan for the player the Jaguars signed as an unrestricted free agent this past off-season.

“I think 300 carries is a lot of carries,” Fisch said Thursday before the sixth practice of Jaguars 2014 Training Camp at the Florida Blue Health and Wellness Practice Fields. “We have to really see how we’re running the football and what we’re running well.”

Pyro's take: Toby has been getting a lot of love now that he is finally getting his shot, but it looks like he is not going to be the workhorse back that many thought he would be. It makes sense that OC Jedd Fisch does not want to put too much pressure on Gerhart who only has rushed for more than 20 attempts twice in his career. Toby will need to prove that he can handle the increased workload. If you were expecting workhorse back numbers you will need to go back and adjust your tiers.

Gerhart Workhorse

Updating on previous reports, offensive coordinator Jed Fisch stated “Toby will be our workhorse," Fisch went on to say that: "Toby has the ability to do it all. He can catch it well. He can pass protect well, and he's going to be in the game a lot on third down, base downs, short-yardage, passing downs."

Pyro's take: No doubt that Fisch wants Toby Gerhart involved as much as possible, but the whole back-field is a big question mark, as nobody knows if Gerhart can be a bell-cow, or even a good running back. Not only is Toby Gerhart a questionable option, but the Jaguars have other options in Jordan Todman and Denard Robinson, but Jed Fisch believes that both are change-of-pace backs.

When looking at Gerhart for your fantasy team he will hold more value in a PPR league than standard, due to his ability to catch the ball. I also doubt that Toby Gerhart can score more than 8 touchdowns in a Jacksonville offense, and rush for more than 1,100 yards.

I would avoid him in standard league until late, and draft him as a number 3 with upside in a PPR.

Gerhart expectations

Ryan O'Hallloran for the Florida Times-Union discussed what will be in store for Gerhart who had 276 carries for 1,305 yards and five touchdowns in four years with Minnesota as a back-up to Adrian Peterson.

Now as a Jaguar, he is in a offense that did not perform very well in several categories. O'Halloran, broke it down:

The Jaguars desperately need to boost their running game. Last year’s rankings:

*78.8 rushing yards per game – 31st in the NFL (ahead of only Atlanta).

*378 attempts – 28th (ahead of only Miami, Cleveland, Dallas and Atlanta).

*3.1 yards per carry – 31st (ahead of only Baltimore).

*Seven rushing touchdowns – 28th.

What are Toby Gerhart expectations in this weak offense? Earlier this off-season, offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch said: “The league has turned into one that there wasn’t a one player who averaged 20 carries per game last year – no running back had 320 carries last year. [Philadelphia’s] LeSean McCoy was closest with 314. So you’re not looking for that workhorse back per se that can handle 20-25 carries every game for 16 weeks. It doesn’t happen.” Gerhart should be in the 12-15 range, according to Ryan O'Hallaran with a few going to Denard Robinson and Jordan Todman.

Pyro's take: Few carries in a bad offense makes bad results. As of this printing it does not look like Toby Gerhart is going to achieve much, because at most with 15 carries per game, it results into 240 carries, and to break the 1,000 barrier he will need to average 4.2 yards per carry.

Because of these reasons, Gerhart should be treated as a running back three, and be low on your tier board.

Gerhart signed on to start for Jacksonville?

Former Minnesota Viking and career-long backup to Adrian Peterson, Toby Gerhart, has reportedly agreed to terms with the Jacksonville Jaguars on a three-year contract worth $10.5 million. The signing also included $4.5 million guaranteed.

Pyro's take: Ahhhh, what could have been...

Alas, with Gabby shipped off to the 49ers, it looks like the world will either have to fall down the rabbit hole or else wait until the apocalypse to see a surefire Hall-Of-Fame combination like Gabbert-to-Gerhart running out of the same NFL backfield.

The fact is, Toby is a better running back than most people realize, but this was still too much money to give to a career backup RB.

Though he'll likely be talked about as a fantasy sleeper over the next handful of months, the more likely scenario is for Gerhart to end up in a timeshare with Jordan Todman by mid-season.

Gerhart Looking For More

Free agent Toby Gerhart has mentioned he would rather leave Minnesota than be signed by the team. He wants a bigger role than sitting behind Adrian Peterson.

Pyro's take: Gerhart knows that the only way he is going to be a constant contributor is to be on a team that doesn't have a future hall-of-fame running back on the squad. Toby Gerhart is still a young buck at 27, and being a back-up has helped him not take a constant punishment in the NFL. He has a total of 276 carries in his four seasons with an average carry of 4.7 and has 77 receptions for 600 yards, he also has 8 touchdowns in his career.

Toby should be able to find a home where he can be utilized even more than he has in Minnesota, and possibly even land a starting role somewhere such a city like Oakland, or Jacksonville.

Gerhart dealing with hamstring injury

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said injured running backs Adrian Peterson (foot sprain) and Toby Gerhart (hamstring) will not practice today and probably won't practice until Friday, if at all. He also said he's more hopeful that Gerhart will be able to practice on Friday than Peterson.

Frazier said Peterson already has assured him that he'll be ready to play, but added that the team will "err on the side of caution," keeping in mind Peterson's long-term value and the fact that the team is mathematically eliminated from the playoff picture at 3-9-1. Frazier also said Peterson would have to practice on Friday before the team would play him in the game on Sunday.

Pyro's take: The news coming from the cold North is just not very good. I have a strong suspicion that AP is not going to play this week, but this injury to Gerhart complicates things.

If you went out and grabbed Toby this week I bet you did not know about this hamstring issue. This could be a reason to look elsewhere for a running back this week. I expect Gerhart to play, but if his hamstring acts up it will be a short day. I would look for a better options than these injured Vikings.
