WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore is officially retiring from the NFL.

Gore broke the news in a live stream with Bovada. The 38-year-old running back was out of the league last year despite showing he could still play with the Jets in 2020, and he's officially going to call it a career and plans to sign a one-day contract with the 49ers at some point in the next few months. Gore's tremendous 16-year career ends with 3,735 carries for 16,000 rushing yards and 81 rushing touchdowns along with 484 receptions for 3,985 receiving yards and 18 receiving touchdowns. He played ten seasons with the 49ers before three with the Colts, one with the Dolphins, one with the Bills, and one with the Jets. Gore's 16,000 career rushing yards are third in NFL history, behind only Emmitt Smith and Walter Payton. There was, stupidly, some debate as to whether Gore should be a Hall of Fame a few years ago, but there is zero doubt that the reliable runner should and will be enshrined in Canton. Gore was also a class act and stayed out of trouble throughout his lengthy run in the NFL, and he was known as a great leader in the locker room. We wish him luck as he continues with life after football.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore (lung, concussion) will not play in Week 17.

Gore helped the Jets get their second consecutive win yesterday, and there’s a chance the future Hall of Fame running back has played his last down in the NFL. Gore certainly has the ability to keep playing if he wants to, but we’ll see what he decides. The ageless runner’s 2020 season ends with 187 carries for 653 yards and two touchdowns, along with 16 receptions for 89 yards including the game-clincher to get the Jets their first victory in Week 15. Gore also became the third player in NFL history to reach 16,000 rushing yards last week.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore (concussion) is officially active for the Jets.

Thankfully, Gore was fully cleared for today’s game against the Seahawks after suffering a concussion last Sunday. The veteran running back and the Jets are looking to finally get on the board for a win this season.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore (concussion) is questionable for Week 14.

Gore is making progress through the concussion protocol, and he'll have a couple of days to get full clearance. The veteran runner is looking to get on the field and help the Jets get a win over the final four games to avoid an 0-16 season.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore (concussion) has been ruled out for the rest of today.

Gore missed most of the first half after getting evaluated for a concussion, and unfortunate he's now out for the rest of the game. Before leaving, Gore had one carry for two yards. Hopefully the future Hall of Fame running back is feeling better soon.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

The Jets are signing Frank Gore.

The ageless veteran running back will return for his 16th NFL season, joining his third different AFC East team in three seasons after playing for the Dolphins and Bills in the previous two seasons. Gore was with Jets head coach Adam Gase in Miami in 2018, so the relationship is there, which is key in a season that might have a shortened training camp period due to COVID-19. Le'Veon Bell is obviously the leader in the backfield for the Jets, but Gore has had at least 156 carries in 14 consecutive seasons.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore tops 100 yards in Week 4.

Gore ran extremely well all day against a top-notch Patriots defense, carrying 17 times for 109 yards. But the big highlight from the game was Gore topping the 15,000 rushing yards for his career, joining Hall of Famers Emmitt Smith, Walter Payton, and Barry Sanders as the fourth player in NFL history to hit the mark. As usual, the ageless Gore ran with power, moving forward and picking up positive yardage on his carries; but he also broke a couple of nice runs in the game. Rookie running back Devin Singletary appears close to a return from his hamstring injury, but Gore is playing too well not to be the top runner for Buffalo. On pace for 244 carries for 1,092 yards and eight touchdowns, Gore should be in the mix as a solid FLEX option for Week 5 against the Titans and beyond.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

The Bills have removed Frank Gore from the NFI list.

General manager Brandon Beane says the veteran back will practice today, which—even with his experience—is important in what looks like a four-way backfield competition. Gore might actually have the case to be the top runner selected for fantasy owners this summer because of his reliability and durability.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

The Bills places Frank Gore on the non-football injury list.

Gore probably just isn’t at 100% to start camp, but there’s no indication that he’s dealing with anything serious. Expect him to be taken off the NFI list soon as he looks to get on the field and earn a big role in Buffalo’s backfield.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

The Bills intend to sign Frank Gore, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Keep in mind, this deal cannot become official until the start of the new league year on Wednesday at 4:00 PM ET—and Gore previously went back on his commitment to the Eagles, though to be fair he was torn up and felt bad about it—but it looks like the ageless wonder will continue his career in Buffalo. Gore figures to work in tandem with LeSean McCoy as a tough inside runner that'll help keep the offense ahead of the sticks in favorable positions. This is probably a better real-life signing for the Bills than it is a boost for Gore's fantasy value, but the 35-year-old (36 in May), but don't be surprised if Gore is a weekly FLEX option this season.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore does not need foot surgery, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

This is good news for the veteran running back, as he should be 100% well ahead of the offseason if he plans to continue his playing career, which he is expected to do. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase says he hasn't talked to Gore about next season, but he's obviously really high on him. Don't be surprised if Gore leads Miami's backfield next season.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

The Dolphins have placed Frank Gore (foot) on injured reserve.

This was expected after Gore's foot sprain suffered in Sunday's loss to the Vikings. Gore's season ends with 156 carries for 722 yards and 12 receptions for 124 yards and a touchdown. While Gore didn't score a touchdown on the ground, he had another very productive season running the ball as the primary ball-carrier in his first year with the Dolphins. Gore churns out positive yardage and keeps the offense ahead of the chains, and his 4.6 yards per carry were his most since 2012. The future Hall of Famer turns 36 this offseason, but he'll probably continue playing considering he hasn't shown signs of slowing down. If this Miami coaching staff remains in place, he'll likely be back with the team, but he should draw interest from other places if he doesn't re-sign.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore (foot) is expected to miss the final two games of the season.

Perhaps Gore will somehow tough it out and play Week 16 or Week 17, but it's unlikely. The future Hall of Famer might be placed on injured reserve sometime this week. Rookie Kalen Ballage looks set to become the primary ball-carrier the final two games, but Kenyan Drake and Brandon Bolden will also be in the mix. We'd like to see Drake get a heavier workload moving forward, but the Dolphins haven't appeared eager to do that this year despite his strong end to last season.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore's injury is a foot sprain, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

X-rays were negative, so this is probably good news considering it could have been a break. However, his status for the final two weeks of the season is obviously up in the air for now.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore (ankle) has been ruled out for the rest of today's game.

Before leaving, Gore had five carries for 14 yards. Rookie Kalen Ballage just broke a 75-yard touchdown run to start the second half for Miami, and it'll be him, Kenyan Drake, and Brandon Bolden handling the backfield work for the rest of today's game at Minnesota. Hopefully this isn't a season-ender for Gore, but more information might not become available today.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore's injury is officially an ankle injury.

The Dolphins say Gore is questionable to return, so that's a good sign that he hasn't been reeled out immediately with the injury. We'll update you if Gore is able to get back out there today against the Vikings.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore leaves game with apparent lower leg injury.

Gore appeared to get rolled up on, and he needed to be helped to the sideline while limping very badly. The future Hall of Fame running back is one of the toughest players in the league, so he probably wouldn't be limping this badly if he was just nicked up. Still, hopefully this is something he's able to play through. If not, Kenyan Drake and Brandon Bolden will handle most of the backfield touches moving forward today against Minnesota.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore goes over 100 total yards in Dolphins' win.

Gore carried 12 times for 92 yards and caught one pass for 24 yards against the Patriots. It was a strong showing for the future Hall of Fame running back, who had a long run of 36 yards in the game. Gore passed LaDanian Tomlinson (18,456 yards) for fifth all-time in yards from scrimmage in the game, as he continues to perform at age 35. Gore gets a tough matchup against Minnesota in the second week of the fantasy playoffs.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore gets nine touches in Week 13.

Gore carried eight times for 21 yards and caught one pass for ten yards against the Bills. The veteran running back is a low-upside fantasy option, as he's more of a real-life asset for the Dolphins than he is as a startable fantasy RB.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore handles 15 touches in Week 12 loss.

Gore rushed 14 times for 67 yards, also adding a ten-yard reception. It was another solid game by the 35-year-old, but Kenyan Drake was the standout performer with 96 yards and two touchdowns on just 13 touches. Gore should remain the early-down option for Adam Gase's offense, but Drake will again be the preferred fantasy play in Week 13 against the Bills.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore gets 15 touches in Week 10.

Gore carried 13 times for 90 yards and added two receptions for 12 yards against the Packers. The ageless running back broke a 39-yard run in the loss, and he broke a tie with Walter Payton and Emmitt Smith for most consecutive seasons with 500 rushing yards (14). The future Hall of Fame running back will take the bye week to rest up for the final six games of the regular season, but they seem unlikely to be the final six games of his career given that he continues to play well.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore gets 21 touches against the Jets.

Gore out-touched Kenyan Drake 21-7, as the Dolphins opted to pound their veteran running back in a defensive battle. Gore had 20 carries for 53 yards and added one reception for six yards in the Week 9 win. In the win, Gore passes the great Barry Sanders for the sixth-most scrimmage yards of all-time with 18,204. Gore has double-digit carries in each of the last six games, but he's had fantasy point totals of 2, 5, and 5 (standard scoring) the last three weeks. He's a better real-life asset for the Dolphins than he is a fantasy option right now.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore gets 12 carries in Week 8.

Gore gained 53 yards on his 12 attempts against the Texans, and he also added one reception (on two targets) for five yards. As usual, the veteran running back kept moving forward and picking up positive yardage when giving rushing room on his attempts. Gore is on pace for 168 carries, 770 rushing yards, 12 receptions, 124 receiving yards, and two receiving touchdowns at the mid-way point in the season.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore gets 11 touches in Week 7.

Gore carried ten times for 29 yards and added one reception (on one target) for four yards against the Lions. Detroit did a good job of bottling up Gore, who again received more work than Kenyan Drake (six carries, 72 yards, touchdown) on the ground, not giving the veteran running back much room to run. Gore now faces the Texans on a short week, and Drake is the preferred option in fantasy lineups for Week 8.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore totals 119 yards in Dolphins' win.

Gore worked as the lead ball-carrier for the Dolphins, carrying 15 times (Kenyan Drake received 13 carries) for 101 yards along with one reception for 18 yards agains the Bears. Gore became the first 100-yard rusher versus Chicago this season, as he ran downhill for positive yardage throughout the Week 6 victory. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase has indicated he's happy with the veteran running back leading his backfield in carries, and there's no reason to believe that won't continue in Week 7 against the Lions. The ageless future Hall of Famer is a FLEX option next week.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore is expected to continue as the lead ball-carrier for the Dolphins.

Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald reports this is Miami's plan, with Kenyan Drake mixing in "as more of a complementary runner and pass-catching threat." This seemed evident based on the start of the season, as the team has given Gore more carries; and it's also evident that the veteran running back does a good job of picking up positive yardage and not trying to do to much, which is what Adam Gase is looking for to keep his offense in positive situations. Drake is still the preferred fantasy option, but Gore offers FLEX upside in fantasy lineups.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore rushed 12 times for 63 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.

Gore led the team in carries and yards on the ground, but it wasn't enough to hold off Cincinnati from going on a 24-0 run in the fourth quarter to hand Miami their second loss in a row after a 3-0 start. It looks like the veteran is the preferred early-down runner for Adam Gase after Kenyan Drake rushed just six times for 46 yards, so he's on the weekly FLEX radar if that continues. That said, the Dolphins face a tough (and rested) Chicago defense in Week 6, and it might be wise to get Drake the ball more in space, which we saw quite a bit of against the Bengals.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore scores in loss to the Patriots.

Gore rushed 11 times for 41 yards, also adding two receptions for 16 yards and a touchdown in a 38-7 blowout. The veteran clearly led the backfield in touches (13) ahead of Kenyan Drake (four) and Kalen Ballage (one), but this was a game the forget offensively for the Dolphins, and they probably need to get Drake going if they want to prove their 3-0 start wasn't a fluke. Gore will be a decent FLEX next week against the vulnerable run defense of the Bengals.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore gets six carries against the Raiders.

Miami couldn't get anything going on the ground against Oakland, and Gore gained 12 yards on his six attempts. The veteran running back again split work pretty evenly with Kenyan Drake, but the Dolphins had under 40 offensive plays in the game, making things difficult to gauge. The Dolphins would probably like ten-plus carries for each of their to starting running backs next week against New England.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore hits fourth on NFL's rushing list.

The ageless veteran running back received ten touches in the Week 2 win against the Jets, carrying nine times for 25 yards and adding one reception for 19 yards. Kenyan Drake scored on a six-yard run, which is a blow to those hoping Gore would receive the touches deep in the red zone. In the win, Gore passed Curtis Martin for fourth all-time on the NFL's rushing yardage list, and he's now up to 14,112 yards in his career, behind only Emmitt Smith, Walter Payton, and Barry Sanders. Gore faces the Raiders in Week 3, and you can expect around another ten touches for him.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore looks good in season opener.

Gore rushed nine times for a team-high 61 yards, including a long run of 21 yards. The ageless wonder was out-touched by Kenyan Drake (17 to nine), but it wouldn't be surprising to see him push for 12-15 touches in the coming weeks. Still, Drake is clearly the back to own, and Gore will be a volatile play as he relies on efficiency. He will try to keep it going next week against the Jets.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Adam Gase says Frank Gore "looks exactly the same" as he did ten years ago.

Gase and Gore were together in 2008, when Gore was still with the 49ers and Gase was an offensive assistant with the team. Clearly, Gase does not care about Gore's age, as he says he's "irrelevant" because Gore is "a different dude." The production of the veteran running back is undeniable, as the 35-year-old has had over 1,200 yards from scrimmage every season since 2006, his second year in the NFL. Gore wasn't just brought in as a good veteran presence for a young running back room, as he'll help take some of the pressure and workload off Kenyan Drake. In an offense that could run the ball a lot this season, Gore has some potential FLEX or even RB2 upside in 2018.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore is signing with the Dolphins, according to multiple reports.

The move was first reported by Craig Mish of Sirius XM, and it's a one-year deal for the former 49ers and Colts running back. The veteran Gore of course played his college ball at Miami, and the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero reported earlier today that Gore really wanted to play for the Dolphins. After former Dolphins running back Damien Williams signed with Kansas City, it seemed inevitable that Gore would be signing with the team. Head coach Adam Gase and the front office are apparently trying to shift the culture for the franchise, and brining in a football player like Frank Gore is a great move to help set things in the right direction. Kenyan Drake is fully expected to be the starting running back for the Dolphins, but the future Hall of Famer Gore should get a good amount of work, despite the fact that he'll be 35 next season.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore will visit the Lions, according to Aditi Kinkhabwala.

The Colts are going in another direction, but the 34-year-old running back (35 in May) has shown he still has it and wants to keep his amazing career going. The Lions showed interest in Jonathan Stewart before he signed with the Giants, so maybe they'll be more urgent and sign Gore. At this point in his career, Gore is going to go somewhere he believes has a good shot to win a championship.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

The Colts are not planning on re-signing Frank Gore.

The veteran running back will hit free agency at the start of the new league year on March 14, as Colts GM Chris Ballard wants to get younger at the position. Gore spent three seasons with Indianapolis, providing leadership and setting an example for the younger guys on the roster despite the team not competing like he thought it would when he signed with them in 2015. Gore had over 960 rushing yards in each of his three years with the Colts, including 1,025 yards in 2016. He'll be 35 next season, but Gore is an ageless wonder that has shown he still has the ability to contribute deep into his 30s. There will be teams interested if he wants to continue playing.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Still got it: Frank Gore rushes for 100 yards in season finale.

Gore rushed 24 times for 100 yards and caught three passes for 11 yards in a 22-13 victory. The 34-year-old started all 16 games in 2017 and finishes with 261 attempts for 961 yards and three touchdowns, while also catching 29 passes for 245 yards and another score. Gore is a free agent in the offseason, but he could return to Indianapolis if Andrew Luck is healthy to make them a playoff contender. Despite turning 35 in May, it wouldn't be a surprise to see him turn in another solid season in 2018. That said, he'll be no better than a FLEX option in fantasy drafts next summer.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore scores in Colts' Week 16.

Gore totaled 19 touches against the Ravens, carrying 17 times for 68 yards while adding two reception for 18 yards and a receiving touchdown. The touchdown came on a 14-yard screen pass where Gore elevated over the pylon into the end zone. The future Hall of Fame running back has continued to carry most of the load in Indy's backfield, and it should continue in the season finale next week against the Texans to end the season. Gore needs 139 rushing yards to surpass 1,000 yards in a season for the tenth time in his career, so the Colts might do their best to help him get it, making him a strong FLEX option in Week 17.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore gets 13 touches against the Broncos.

Gore briefly left the game at the end of the second half after he took a hit to the knee area, but he returned for the start of the third quarter. The veteran running back had ten carries for 31 yards and three receptions for 37 yards in the loss. He ran well when given room, but the Broncos played solid run defense in this one. Gore might have similar trouble finding room to run in Week 16 against the Ravens, so he remains only a FLEX option in fantasy lineups.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore (knee/quad) returns against the Broncos.

Thankfully, the veteran running back is OK and back in there to start the second half after he took a shot to the knee area late in the second half. He'll look to help get Indy their fourth win of the year, and they're currently up 10-7 on Denver.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore takes hit to the knee against Denver.

The future Hall of Fame running back just took a hit to his left knee and it didn't look too good. Gore did go to the sideline under his own power, but he's a really tough guy and there could be an issue worse than he's letting on. He's currently getting looked at by trainers on the sideline, but we'll see if he's able to return to tonight's game.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore notches career high in carries against Buffalo.

The Colts ran the ball 46 times compared to 22 pass attempts, as there were heavy-snow conditions against the Bills. Gore carried 36 times for 130 yards and added one reception for ten yards in the game. This was Gore's first 100-yard game of the season, and he's now over 200 carries for the 12th consecutive season. The veteran running back has a shot at 1,000 yards for the tenth time in his career this season, so he might get a sizable workload over the last three games to try and reach it. Gore is in the FLEX conversation for Week 15 against the Broncos.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore gets 13 carries against Jacksonville.

The veteran running back gained 61 yards on his 13 attempts, and he jumped both Jerome Bettis and LaDanian Tomlinson to get into fifth all-time on the NFL's rushing yardage list. Gore has been an excellent example of consistency in the NFL. The future Hall of Famer still gets the job done at 34 years old, and he's in the FLEX conversation next week versus Buffalo.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore scores against the Titans.

Gore handled 19 touches in the Week 12 loss, carrying 17 times for 62 yards and a touchdown while adding two receptions (on five targets) for 17 yards. Though talented rookie Marlon Mack is in the mix, Gore continues to get more touches and is the preferred fantasy option. Gore is a risky option against the Jaguars next week, though, as Jacksonville held him to 34 yards in their first matchup of the season.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore gets 18 touches in loss to the Steelers.

Gore rushed 17 times for 54 yards and caught a seven-yard pass, as the Colts tried killing the clock with a 17-3 lead in an eventual 20-17 defeat. The veteran Gore heads into the bye week with 18+ touches in three-straight games, but he could have his workload decreased down the stretch. Marlon Mack might be worth a speculative add.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore handles 20 touches in win over the Texans.

Gore rushed 17 times for 51 yards and caught three passes for 26 yards. The veteran out-carried Marlon Mack 17 to nine, and the rookie was surprisingly held without a reception on Sunday. Fantasy owners might be excited for Mack to get a larger workload, but Chuck Pagano is going to give Gore touches as he tries to win as many games as he can to potentially prove he should coach beyond this season. Gore is still just a decent FLEX play against the Steelers in Week 10.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore runs well against the Bengals.

The veteran running back carried 16 times for 82 yards and also added four receptions (on four targets) for 19 yards. Gore does have rookie Marlon Mack pushing for touches, but he's expected to be the lead guy moving forward—even on a team that's struggling and may not compete for the playoffs this season. He'll remain an RB2/FLEX option next week at Houston.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore gets nine carries against Jacksonville.

Gore gained 34 yards on his nine attempts in a game the Colts couldn't get much of anything going against the Jaguars. The veteran running back and his team will look to bounce back next week against Cincinnati, which will hopefully lead to more carries for Gore.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore gets 12 touches against the Titans.

The veteran running back carried ten times for 49 yards and caught two passes for 18 yards. Indy curiously went away from the running game despite some nice gains on the ground early, so hopefully they'll stick with it more against a soft Jaguars run defense next week. Robert Turbin appeared to have suffered an arm injury that could keep him out next week against Jacksonville, so Gore would likely be in line more short yardage carries if that ends up being the case. Gore is a FLEX option for Week 7.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore gets 17 touches against his former team.

Gore carried 14 times for 48 yards and added three receptions for 38 yards against the 49ers. The 34-year-old running back also passed Eric Dickerson for seventh on the NFL's all-time rushing list, which was cool to get versus the 49ers. Marlon Mack (nine carries for 91 yards) made some huge plays in the game, and Gore fumbled twice (but didn't lose either), so there is slight concern about his workload. But Gore will likely be the clear lead guy in Week 6 against the Titans.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore gets 15 touches in Week 4.

Gore had 12 carries for 46 yards while adding three receptions (on three targets) for 34 yards. Gore actually led the team in receiving with his 34 yards. The day could've been better if he had a goal line carry, but Robert Turbin received the opportunities there and punched it in. The veteran back is on pace for 244 carries, 764 rushing yards, eight rushing touchdowns, 20 receptions and 176 receiving yards.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Colts feed Frank Gore in Week 3 victory.

Indy must have decided they need to do everything they can to get a win, so they handed their veteran back the ball 25 times in the game. Gore was only able to pick up 57 yards, but he did run for a four-yard touchdown. He also had a one-yard reception. Given Seattle's shaky run defense so far this season, Gore is a FLEX option next week against them—though there's a chance they shut him down, making him a risky one.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore scores in Week 2.

Considering the difficult matchup versus Arizona, Gore had a very good day, rushing 14 times for 46 yards and a touchdown. He obviously has more upside with Andrew Luck in the lineup, but Gore is still a FLEX option until he returns. The Colts face the Browns in Week 3.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore rushed 10 times for 42 yards in the Colts' season opener.

He also caught a 10-yard pass. Gore didn't have much of a shot to get going as his team was down 27-3 at halftime and ended up losing 46-9 to the Rams. Marlon Mack took a lot of second-half carries, but he only had 24 yards on 10 attempts, though he did score. Gore is a risky fantasy option for as long as Andrew Luck is out, and he might be a good guy to trade away with the Colts season already in question.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore scores in Colts' third preseason game.

The 34-year-old running back looked very good, rushing five times for 23 yards and a touchdown versus the Steelers. The touchdown came at the goal line, where Gore followed his blockers and punched it in. Gore will face a familiar foe when the Colts play the Rams in Week 1 on September 10. Gore will be at least a FLEX option in that game.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore plays in Colts' second preseason game.

Indy's starter rushed twice for four yards before resting for the night. Having turned 34 earlier this year, Gore is a risky fantasy pick in the middle rounds, though he did rush for 1,025 yards in 2016. Andrew Luck being ready for Week 1 would be a big boost to the entire offense.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore wants to play in 2018.

Gore is 34-years-old but still productive and coming off another 1,000-yard season in 2016. The Colts' veteran back said who is entering the final year of his contract said, "I want to play next year. Someone will pick me up, if it’s not here." Gore is currently limited in training camp as a precaution because of his ankle injury, but he'll be ready to start for Week 1 and is looking for his 10th 1,000-yard season. If the Colts don't retain him in 2018, he shouldn't have much trouble finding a team, though it might not be in a lead-back role.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Colts.com's Kevin Bowen thinks Frank Gore could see a couple less carries per game this season.

Gore has had 260 and 263 carries over the last two seasons, and has been a very solid fantasy option in those two years. Now at 34-years-old and with Robert Turbin and rookie Marlon Mack in the mix, Bowen says "it would not surprise" if Gore saw a couple less carries per game this season to keep him fresher late in the season (and potentially the playoffs). There's no doubt Gore will be Indy's lead back, which could be a valuable position. Goal line carries will be a big determining factor in Gore's upside, but he should be a lock for at least 200-220+ carries this season. He's currently being drafted outside the top 25 running backs.

Frank Gore | Retired RB

Frank Gore hasn't been participating in Colts minicamp.

It's unclear why exactly Gore isn't participating, but it could just be him getting rest because of his age. His starting quarterback and the top receiver aren't participating either, so other guys are having the opportunity to get more reps. Gore might take it easy at times during it, but he'll be good to go for training camp.

Frank Gore goes over 1,000 yards for the ninth time in his career.

Gore had 16 carries for 62 yards and two receptions for 14 yards against the Jaguars. He ended his season with 263 carries for 1,025 yards and four touchdowns, with 38 receptions for 277 yards and four touchdowns receiving. Gore is the first Colt since 2007 to reach 1,000 yards and he's also the first running back age 33 or older to reach 1,000 yards since John Riggins in 1984. Gore continues to defy age and he has a chance to top 1,000 again next season for the Colts. He hasn't missed a game in the last six seasons. Gore should be drafted as a top 20 running back in 2017 fantasy drafts.

Frank Gore rushed 13 times for 73 yards against Oakland

He also had one catch for 12 yards. Gore did have a rare lost fumble in the game, too. He and the Colts should bounce back against the Jaguars next week, despite it being a meaningless game in terms of the playoffs. Gore will be a solid RB2.

Frank Gore powers for over 100 yards in Colts win.

Gore had 26 carries for 101 yards against the Vikings. He also had four catches for 14 yards. Robert Turbin ran for two touchdowns behind Gore, including one at the goal line, but it was a great day for Gore considering the matchup. Gore will be a RB1/RB2 for fantasy championships.

Frank Gore catches touchdown in loss.

Gore rushed 10 times for 41 yards and caught two-of-two targets for 33 yards and one touchdown. The Colts, now 6-7, have a tough matchup with the Vikings that they likely need to win next Sunday, and giving Gore more than 10 carries would be a good idea against Minnesota's elite pass defense. Gore is an RB2 for Week 15.

Frank Gore rushed 20 times for 79 in the Colts' win over the Jets.

Gore passed Tony Dorsett for eighth place on the all-time rushing yards list. The veteran back was facing a tough front but was able to have a nice game with the 20 carries. With similar volume expected the rest of the way as Indy fights for a playoff spot, Gore is a solid RB2 for the fantasy playoffs, starting next week against Houston.

Gore completely bottled up with Luck out of the lineup.

The veteran rushed 15 times for 28 yards and caught one pass for three yards. The Steelers got off to an early start and the Colts could never establish the running game. Gore was actually out gained by Jordan Todman on three carries, but it was in garbage time; Gore remains the clear workhorse for Week 13, but will be a low-end RB2 against the stout Jets front.

Gore totals 120+ yards in Week 11 against the Titans.

He had 18 carries for 50 yards and four catches for 71 yards. Gore has been a near workhorse for the Colts, and is a clear top ten option at RB for fantasy owners. Keep him in your lineup against the Steelers this week.
