Toby Gerhart RB JAC 3 months ago

Gerhart was released by the Jaguars on Tuesday, Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With the Jaguars expected to sign Chris Ivory on Wednesday at the start of free agency, they've elected to release Gerhart in the corresponding move. Gerhart saw action in just seven games last season before being placed on injured reserve with a groin injury, finishing with 44 yards on 20 carries. He'll be an unrestricted free agent when free agency begins Wednesday.

Gerhart (groin) will be placed on injured reserve Saturday, ending his season, NFL.com's Ian Rapoport reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The news is not yet official, but the report makes sense. Gerhart can now be let go in all single-season formats. T.J. Yeldon and Denard Robinson remain No. 1 and No. 2 on the Jaguars depth chart at running back, respectively.

Gerhart (groin) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Titans.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gerhart will sit this one out after not practicing all week, which sets the stage for T.J. Yeldon and Denard Robinson to head the Jaguars' Week 13 backfield.

Gerhart (groin) missed practice again Thursday, John Oehser of Jaguars.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

As long as T.J. Yeldon and Denard Robinson remain healthy, Gerhart's status is of more import to the Jags' backfield depth than it is to fantasy owners.

Gerhart (groin) did not practice Wednesday, John Oehser of jaguars.com reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gerhart was able to play last Sunday against the Chargers despite being listed on the injury report with a nagging groin injury, so it seems likely Wednesday's practice status is merely for precautionary reasons. That being said, Gerhart is firmly entrenched as the No. 3 running back for the Jaguars and likely won't see many opportunities in the backfield so long as T.J. Yeldon and Denard Robinson remain healthy.

Gerhart (groin) is active for Sunday's game against the Chargers.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gerhart will serve as the number three running back in this game.

Gerhart (groin) is active for Thursday's game against the Titans, Ryan O'Halloran of the Florida Times-Union reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gerhart was a healthy scratch the past two weeks, but with Bernard Pierce (calf) unable to play, the former Viking is now in line to serve as the No. 3 running back. With T.J. Yeldon (groin) and Denard Robinson also active, Gerhart is unlikely to get more than two or three touches, unless Yeldon's injury flares up during the

game.

Gerhart (groin) is likely to be active Thursday night against Tennessee, the Florida Times-Union reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Gerhart is officially listed as "probable" on Wednesday's injury report, and considering Bernard Pierce (calf) is trending toward inactive status, Gerhart should be available after sitting out the last two games.

Gerhart is inactive Sunday against the Jets.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With T.J. Yeldon and Denard Robinson both healthy, Gerhart's fantasy upside was very limited to begin with, so his absence Sunday isn't likely to affect many fantasy rosters.

Gerhart carried the ball nine times for 26 yards in Sunday's game against the Texans. He also caught three of his four targets for 23 yards in the loss.

Competitive Edge Analysis

The 28-year-old led the Jaguars backfield in touches with starter T.J. Yeldon out due to injury, but Denard Robinson also played a large role, until the Jaguars were forced to abandon the run in the fourth quarter. Gerhart has shown in the past the he is capable of respectable, albeit underwhelming, production when given ample touches, and Sunday's performance was on par with that. Yeldon could return in Week 7, when Jacksonville takes on the Bills at home, which would reduce Gerhart back to a non-factor in fantasy.
