Jaguars OC Jedd Fisch would prefer RB Toby Gerhart doesn't handle 300 carries

Most of the stuff printed about Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart this offseason has been about how he is going to absolutely dominate the touches out of Jacksonville's backfield. Three hundred carries seemed like a legitimate possibility by at least one beat writer just a few days ago. Today, offensive coordinator Jeff Fisch spoke with the media and came carrying a bucket of cold water. According to Eugene Frenette of the Florida Times-Union, Fisch said he "prefers" Gerhart not be a 300-carry player like Maurice Jones-Drew had been for the franchise. He wants backups such as Jordan Todman @JordanTodman to pitch in as well.

Fantasy Analysis:

Certainly, Todman, Denard Robinson @DenardX, and maybe Storm Johnson will get some work, but Gerhart is still the clear leader here. Don't confuse these comments as Fisch advocating for a timeshare. He's just saying that it's not going to be all Gerhart running with the rock, and that's fine. If he winds up with 250-275 touches, he'll be a stellar RB2 all the same.
