2013 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Jul-27-2013 by Daniel Kalles
Receiver, running back , maybe even Quarterback? Who knows where Denard Robinson will line up, but no matter where it is, it won't be somewhere that makes him worthy of a fantasy roster. Is it possible he has some good games - sure, but no one will be able to know when that is and it definitely won't be on a consistent basis. Avoid the hype, let someone else draft him and deal with him.
The Jaguars are in the market for a new starting running back since Maurice Jones-Drew isn't expected to be re-signed. One would figure that the new starter isn't Toby Gerhart, but the Jags did just give him some serious coin. FOX Sports' Mike Garafolo reports that the Jaguars signed the former Vikings runner to a three-year contract worth $10.5 million with $4.5 million guaranteed.
Gerhart spent his first four seasons backing up Adrian Peterson in Minnesota. Last season, he averaged almost eight yards per carry but on only 36 rushes. He has averaged 4.7 yards per carry over a career 276 rushes.
Gerhart can do a number of things decently. He can catch and block as well as run between the tackles. But he is a sluggish, straight-line runner with little upside. With MJD expected to depart, the Jaguars' starting RB in Week 1 is probably to be decided between Gerhart and Jordan Todman. The Jags have also said they want to get Denard Robinson more involved as a running back. But with a significant amount of guaranteed cash tied to him, I think Gerhart's going to get more chances than he really deserves to be a lead runner.
