300 carries 'not out of the question' for Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart


300 carries 'not out of the question' for Jaguars RB Toby Gerhart

If you need any further proof that the Jaguars want running back Toby Gerhart to be the engine of their offense, ESPN's Michael DiRocco is here to give it to you.
"The Jaguars also need [Gerhart] to be the workhorse back," DiRocco said Friday. "250 to 300 carries, 1,200 yards I think is not out of the question for Toby Gerhart."
DiRocco also said Gerhart is a "first-down menace" who has the hands to play on third downs as a pass-catcher.

Fantasy Analysis:

All of this talk about Gerhart and his huge carry count has helped move his ADP into the early portions of the fourth round in standard leagues. It's hard to disagree with that spot. Eleven RBs carried the ball at least 250 times last season, and only one of them is currently not being drafted in the first four rounds: Chris Johnson. Gerhart is looking more and more like a solid RB2 with each passing day.
