Running Back Player Notes
For The Last 15 Days
Toby Gerhart, RB, JAC3/31/2015 1:28:00 PM
Description: Jaguars running back Toby Gerhart is expected to play fullback next season, according to Ian Rapoport.
Insight: Gerhart was supposed to carry the running game last season, but failed miserably. He rushed for 326 yards on 102 carries and lost the job to Denard Robinson. The Jags added Bernard Pierce and got rid of fullback Bradie Ewing leaving the team without a fullback on the current roster.
Frank Gore, RB, IND3/24/2015 3:51:00 PM
Description: Head coach Chuck Pagano called running back Frank Gore his every-down back.
Insight: That's bad news for backups Dan Herron, Vick Ballard and Zurlon Tipton. The 2014 Colts backs had just nine rushing touchdowns and Gore could get that by himself next season. Though Gore may still be able to carry the load, remember the Colts offense is Andrew Luck centric.
LeSean McCoy, RB, PHI3/24/2015 3:32:00 PM
Description: LeSean McCoy new head coach, Rex Ryan said he's play in third downs along with Fred Jackson.
Insight: That's good news for fantasy owners as McCoy lost some value last season to Darren Sproles. McCoy is a great screen pass receiver and the Bills should use him there as well as running the ball if they and fantasy owners are to get their money's worth.
Adrian Peterson, RB, MIN3/20/2015 1:30:00 PM
Description: Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson's agent refused a dinner meeting with Vikings management, according to Charles Robinson of Yahoo.
Insight: It appears the Vikings and Peterson aren't going to be able to work this one out. Peterson can still run, but he obviously doesn't want to do it in Minnesota anymore. Arizona? Dallas?
Bernard Pierce, RB, JAC3/19/2015 4:36:00 PM
Description: The Jags have claimed waived running back Bernard Pierce.
Insight: Pierce was arrested for a DUI early Wednesday morning, and Baltimore made a quick decision to rid themselves of him. Pierce ran for just 366 yards at a 3.9 ypc pace. He'll be hard-pressed to make the Week 1 roster.
Bernard Pierce, RB, BAL3/18/2015 2:52:00 PM
Description: The Ravens have waived running back Bernard Pierce.
Insight: He was arrested for a DUI early Wednesday morning, and Baltimore made a quick decision to rid themselves of him. Pierce should be able to find work somewhere as a backup.
