Jaguars HC Gus Bradley talked about Toby Gerhart as a back that could regularly see between 15-20 touches a game.
Bradley said he likes Gerhart’s toughness and that it was great Gerhart is an experienced pro with limited career carries.
“He seems like a guy that the more he handles the ball the stronger he gets,” Bradley said. “He’ll pop one. He can make people miss. He has a toughness you can count on, can catch the ball and he’s great on third downs. He’s going to have a great opportunity.”
Toby Gerhart has touched the ball 15+ times in seven career games and has averaged low-end RB1 numbers (12.6 FP) with that type of workload. The former Heisman candidate will likely start for the Jaguars, though Jordan Todman could offer up some competition (assuming Maurice Jones-Drew signs elsewhere). Gerhart has fantasy RB2 potential as a lead back.
