Gore may have finished as a top-12 running back again last season, but don't be fooled by durable mediocrity. While many think it is nice to own a reliable, but unspectacular player, we consider Gore a waste of a mid-round pick. Gore is as old as a rock, only had 3.7 yards per carry last season and didn't once eclipse 100 yards rushing in a game. We get it if you want a guy that will get 250 rushes this season and his team's red zone carries, but don't waste a mid-round pick on him.

Frank Gore carried four times for six yards in limited action vs the Eagles.

Fantasy Impact: As expected, the Colts didn't give a huge amount of work to their aging running back. This game is a tune up for the regular season, and owners can expect Gore to be the workhorse once the season begins.

I don't have a ton of faith in Gore due to his oldness, but he played well last season in the context of an awful offensive line and no quarterback to spread the defense out. That line will get better, as the Colts' franchise quarterback was nearly beaten to death, so Gore could see much better running lanes, and there is a good chance he'll be the lead back once again due to the Colts not adding much in the way of competition this offseason

As long as Frank Gore is effective this season, the Colts will feed him the rock. It's going to be one of these "let's see how he is doing in the game" situations to where Gore could be a fantasy beast or a fantasy bust from week to week. A lot is also riding on QB Andrew Luck's play this season. The better Luck plays, the more likely Defenses will have to play the pass instead of loading the box against the run. I currently have Frank Gore as my 20th ranked RB in 2016 Fantasy Football league drafts.

Gore has finished between 11th and 19th from 2010 to 2015 and he should be in a position to gain 1,000 yards from scrimmage despite being 33 years old.

Even the definition of a Colt contradicts Frank Gore: A colt is a young male horse, in particular, one less than four years old. The irony is that the average NFL running back only lasts four years in the league, but not Frank.

Al Gore has never received the respect he deserves. He was the 45th Vice President of the United States, the Democratic Party's nominee for President in 2000, Nobel Peace Prize winner in 2007, on the Board of Directors of Apple, and senior advisor to Google. Yet, he's known as the guy that "invented the internet." The only problem with that, though, is he didn't actually say that. What he did sa...

Quietly had a strong season in 2015, ready to make noise with the Colts offense ready to take the next step

Remains the Colts featured back and a very serviceable standard league RB2 play.

At Rotoballer, we are starting off the month of August with a series of articles covering a mock draft with 12 Rotoballer Writers that was drafted at the end of July. A forewarning, this mock will not be able to account for more recent news like the Le'veon Bell suspension and the Josh Gordon reinstatement and suspension.

One of the safest RB3 targets. Should post RB2 stats.
