Toby_Gerhart_2014_Jaguars_training_camp_Cropped
Gerhart was all smiles in training camp, but the regular season has been a disaster.

To be nice, we’ll just say Toby Gerhart’s season hasn’t lived up to the hype.  Okay it’s been worse than that, Gerhart has hurt a lot of fantasy owners teams.  Coming into 2014, Gerhart was on a lot people’s fantasy radar, he was finally stepping out of Adrian Peterson’s shadow and into his own starting role.  Well, things for Toby haven’t turned out well, he is averaging a paltry 2.6 yards per carry, and has 114 yards on the entire season.  For comparison, Demarco Murray has rushed for less than 114 yards once in any game this season.  This past game the ex-Viking rushed for 32 yards, lost a fumble, but finally mustered his first touchdown of the season.  The downside, backup Denard Robinson played more snaps than the supposed workhorse Gerhart.  Robinson listed as a wide receiver, did not blow anyone away with his play, but looked more fluid in the Jaguars offense rushing for 25 yards, and adding three receptions for only seven yards.  Robinson is the former quarterback for the Michigan Wolverines, but switched positions in order to hang in the pro game.  If Robinson continues to see playing time over Gerhart, he will warrant consideration for a roster spot, especially in PPR leagues.  I’m not saying Robinson will blow the lid off of the NFL, but he might have value in deeper leagues moving forward.  As for Gerhart, if I owned him on my fantasy team I would trade him for just about anyone, even a backup defense.

Robinson could see an increase in playing time with an ineffective Gerhart.
