Frank Gore signs with the Dolphins

Sirius XM's Craig Mish is reporting that the Dolphins have agreed to a one-year contract with running back Frank Gore.

Fantasy Impact

This is the best case scenario for Kenyan Drake, as Gore isn't someone who presents a threat to steal carries at this point in his career, especially when you consider how bad the offensive line-play has been. It was shocking to see Gore land a job in general as a soon-to-be 35-year-old running back who has struggled to find any room to run over the last few years. His 3.77 yards per carry with the Colts over the last three years apparently spoke to the Dolphins, who are in a complete rebuild. The signing makes little sense, so don't be surprised if the Dolphins add another running back in a talented draft class.

Frank Gore close to signing with Lions

Mike Jones of the USA Today is reporting former Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore is "close" to an agreement with the Detriot Lions.

Fantasy Impact

Gore, who will turn 35 in May, is expected to sign with the Lions. He'll look to improve one of the worst rushing attacks in the NFL in recent memory led by Ameer Abdullah and Theo Riddick. In the wake of Gore's addition, it wouldn't surprise me if the Lions moved on from Abdullah, perhaps via trade around the upcoming NFL Draft. Gore finished 2017 with 961 yards rushing and three TDs and should expect the Lions to bring in competition for the RB1 spot.

Frank Gore, Colts to part ways

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting Indianapolis Colts GM Chris Ballard has informed RB Frank Gore that the team is not planning on re-signing him this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

With the Colts very much in a rebuild, the need for a running back entering his age 35 seasons is not warranted. As a result, the Colts are fully expected to move on from Gore, an impending free agent, this offseason. While this is the end of the line in Indy, I'm not quite sure that Gore is ready to hang up his cleats just yet. While I expect him to catch on with a new club this offseason, it wouldn't surprise me if he lingered until after the NFL Draft once the rosters around the league are turned over.

Frank Gore's time in Indy almost up?

Indianapolis Colts beat writer Mike Chappell doesn't expect the team to re-sign impending free-agent RB Frank Gore this offseason.

Fantasy Impact

At one time Gore saw an opportunity to continue his career and compete for a championship with the Colts. However, three years later, the Colts have been one of the most disappointing teams in the league, primarily due to the lingering shoulder injury carried by Andrew Luck. And although Luck is expected to return in 2018, the Colts are clearly in a rebuild, which means Gore, who will turn 35 in May, should be on his way out, moving on to yet another expected contender if he intends to continue his career. And since we've been waiting for him to hang up his cleats, he just missed yet another 1000-yard rushing year in 2017 and seems like he has some gas left in the tank. Expect Gore to be on a roster by training camp.

Frank Gore cracks the century mark in final game of 2017

Frank Gore recorded 24 carries for 100 yards and caught all three of his targets for 11 yards in the Colts' Week 17 win over the Texans.

Fantasy Impact

Gore capped a solid season with a good performance. He certainly returned value on his ADP, as he has done many times throughout his impressive career. This may well be his final game, as his contract is up after the 2017 season. The Colts are rumored to be looking to invest early in an RB in the draft, too. Gore may land with another team, but probably only as a backup and a veteran presence. His fantasy relevant days are likely done.
