Few veteran free agent runners fell into better positions this off-season than Toby Gerhart, however. After four years of putting up solid numbers while backing up Adrian Peterson, he landed in Jacksonville...

Jags Fantasy Forecast: RB Toby Gerhart

Toby Gerhart is entering his fifth year and is a 27-year-old running back. Typically this would mean he is in the tail end of his prime. However, Gerhart only has 276 career carries. This is less than most running backs have in a single season. Gerhart is much like a quarterback that gets to sit and learn behind one of the best. Gerhart has a career yards-per-carry average of 4...

Versatile Jacksonville RB Toby Gerhart will pull wagon for Jaguars

The Jaguars aren’t predicting a single statistic for new starting running back Toby Gerhart, but when discussing him last week, offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch didn’t mince his analysis. “Toby will be our workhorse,” Fisch said. When Gerhart and his No. 21 hit the practice field Friday morning for the start of training camp, it will signal a new era for the Jaguars’ running...

Gus Bradley: Gerhart “even faster than we gave him credit for”

After backing up Adrian Peterson for four seasons in Minnesota, tailback Toby Gerhart gets a starting job of his own in Jacksonville. The 27-year-old Gerhart, who had just 276 regular season carries for the Vikings, could conceivably get that much work alone this season for the Jaguars, who saw Maurice Jones-Drew leave in free agency and didn’t draft a back until Round Seven (Storm...

Toby Gerhart impressing so far, ready for big season?

When the Minnesota Vikings selected former Stanford running back Toby Gerhart in the second round of the 2010 NFL draft, the thought process was to team him up with Adrian Peterson and form a physically dominationg duo in the backfield.  That didn’t necessarily happen, as Gerhart only saw extensive playing time when Peterson went down with injury. Such is the case when you are...

Toby Gerhart returns as the ‘top dog’ of an offense for the Jacksonville Jaguars

Toby Gerhart was always used to being the lead dog in an offense.

Gerhart, who graduated class valedictorian, was named...

Toby Gerhart is a top-10 NFL free agent running back

Gerhart’s 7.9 yards per carry average from a year ago is eye-pooping, sure, but when the best RB in the game in Adrian Peterson plays in front of you, it’s hard to make a case for any more carries.
