Jaguars will split running back carries; no fantasy value for them
The Jacksonville Jaguars will split running back carries between Toby Gerhart, Jordan Todman and Storm Johnson. We break down the fantasy implications.
The Jacksonville Jaguars will go with a rotation of three running backs for the final three weeks of the season, according to offensive coordinator Jedd Fisch, via Hays Carlyon of the Florida Times Union. Starter Denard Robinson, who came from behind to take the job this season, is out for the remainder of the year with a mid-foot sprain.
Robinson carried the ball 135 times for 582 yards with four touchdowns on the season. He had started to slow down in recent weeks, but none of the three running backs projected to be in the new rotation offer much in relief. That includes Toby Gerhart, Jordan Todman and rookie Storm Johnson. Gerhart is third on the team with 211 yards and a touchdown, Johnson has 64 yards and two touchdowns, while Todman has 56 yards.
Fantasy Impact: Robinson had some fantasy value, but none of his potential replacements are worth starting during the fantasy playoffs. Gerhart had some hype coming into the season, but his 2.9 yards per carry average tells the full story. Fantasy owners should avoid at all costs.
