Toby Gerhart: Are the Jaguars Approaching Fantasy Relevancy Again?

There’s a new sheriff in Jacksonville – well there’s a new workhorse at least. Check out these stats: 234 car – 803 rush yards – 5 TDs – 43 rec – 314 rec yards. That would sound pretty good for Toby Gerhart, right? Well, they’re not his stats. That’s Maurice Jones-Drew’s 2013 stat line, and …
