2014 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Jun-25-2014 by Daniel Kalles
The Jaguars re-signed Jordan Todman and he will go into training camp as the tentative No. 2 running back behind Toby Gerhart. He will also battle with Denard Robinson for playing time (it is almost laughable calling this a battle). Todman is another Jacksonville player with very little value. He appeared in all 16 games last season (even making two starts), but he still only gained 256 yards and 76 carries. Worth a small consideration as a handcuff to Gerhart, Todman earns more value in PPR (point per reception) leagues, but more likely you should stay away from the Jags' running game.
According to the Florida Times Union, Head Coach Jedd Fisch stated very clearly that Jordan Todman would be involved in their offensive scheme but, as a "change of pace" style back.Fantasy Analysis:
Jordan Todman is a great fit for a change of pace style of play but what really matters here is how much of a fit? Going into this season Toby Gerhart was NOT a name brand in many drafts or sometimes even noticed at all. Lately, Gerhart has been that late round steal seeing his ADP just barely breach the late third round but this news could hinder that, maybe, somehwat, a little, but probably not.
While the 5'9 200 lb. Todman looks to be in the news today I don't expect it to be any much more as the 4th year back tries to make a name for himself. Gerhart should the the main back in the Jacksonville backfield with only a real threat from Storm Johnson.
