Gerhart blew his chance to be the team's feature back, but it wasn't entirely his fault as he struggled mightily with a foot injury. T.J. Yeldon is expected to start, but Gerhart will vie with Denard Robinson for touches behind the rookie. Gerhart has caught 76% of his career targets, which is in the same range as the 2014 catch percentages of LeSean McCoy, Eddie Lacy and Justin Forsett. The point is that he has good hands a big body that will help in pass protection. Don't be surprised if it's Gerhart, not Robinson, who plays more snaps behind Yeldon.
