| Toby Gerhart still in mix for bulk of carries?|
With Storm Johnson on carry count, Gerhart could reclaim job
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Oct 14, 12:15 pm
|Running back Storm Johnson carried 10 times in Sunday’s loss, his first career start and second game. That was exactly the amount of work Bradley planned for the rookie to handle.
“Our whole intent was to get Storm 10 carries and he got 10 carries,” Bradley said.
Johnson gained 21 yards and scored on a 1-yard touchdown run. His longest carry went for 7 yards. The seventh-round pick from Central Florida also caught a screen pass for a 4-yard loss.
“His toughness and things like that were there,” Bradley said. “But, there’s a couple of areas and just his overall reads and where we actually want the play to hit. He hit it more front side where he could bring it backside, so things like that.”
On the season, Johnson has carried 14 times for 48 yards.

FFToday's Take: It appears that Gerhart isn't quite dead in the water, but you'll have to suspend disbelief a bit to imagine him meeting even 80 percent of the preseason expectations heaped on him. It's a fluid situation, but the entire backfield is a mess.
| Toby Gerhart ruled out with foot injury|
Storm Johnson to get first crack at RB2 numbers
By: Mike Krueger | Fri Oct 10, 1:45 pm
|Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart missed a second consecutive practice today and has been ruled out of Sunday’s game at Tennessee.
Gerhart injured his foot in Week 1 at Philadelphia and aggravated it last week against Pittsburgh. But he practiced Wednesday and suffered a setback.
(Florida Times Union)|
FFToday's Take: Denard Robinson, Jordan Todman and Storm Johnson will all get a chance to carry the ball this week for the Jaguars. Johnson will get the first crack at being the "hot hand" and therefore holds the most fantasy value of the trio. He'll be a RB3 or Flex consideration at best.
| Cecil Shorts out with hamstring injury|
Rookie receivers get big opportunity on Sunday
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Sep 6, 1:50 pm
|The Jaguars have declared wide receiver Cecil Shorts out of the season opener at Philadelphia with a hamstring injury and he won’t make the trip for the game.
The other three players not making the trip are running back Storm Johnson, offensive tackle Austin Pasztor and tight end Clay Harbor. (Florida Times Union)|
FFToday's Take: Shorts had been bothered by a hamstring injury during training camp and it flared up again on Thursday. He was limited in practice Friday. With Shorts out, Marqise Lee, Allen Hurns and Allen Robinson (all rookies) will be the top targets for Chad Henne. Lee and Hurns offers the most fantasy appeal but both are desperation plays.
