Frank Gore shoots par on MNF

Frank Gore turned in a very Frank Gore performance in Week 6 against the Titans on MNF, carrying 10 times for 49 yards and adding a pair of receptions for 18 yards.

Fantasy Impact

This is what we get from Frank Gore these days, as he turns in single digits in PPR formats. Gore's ceiling and floor are about the same level, making him a safe but unexciting flex play in most weeks. If he happens to find the end zone, he will be a fine start, and with the lack of depth at RB, you may need to keep playing him in fantasy. Gore gets the Jaguars at home in Week 7, which will be a very favorable matchup for the ground game.

Frank Gore very average in Week 5, fumbles twice

Frank Gore carried the ball 14 times for 48 yards and added three catches on four targets for 38 yards, including a long of 26 yards. Gore also fumbled twice but lost neither.

Fantasy Impact

Frank Gore was very pedestrian in Week 5, but continues to show his high floor. He averaged under 4.0 yards per carry, which is lower than desired against the 49ers poor run defense. More notably, Gore ceded essentially all work near the goal line to Robert Turbin, which is concerning given that this was a "revenge game" where the Colts may have been more likely to give him work near the end zone if anything. The return of Marlon Mack also drops Gore's already low ceiling. Gore is, as he has been all season, a low-end RB2 or flex play with a decent floor and a ceiling not much higher than that.

Frank Gore turns in underwhelming performance in Week 4

Frank Gore rushed 12 times for 46 yards and caught all three of his targets for 34 yards in the Week 4 loss to the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact

Gore turned in a very normal performance, but did not find the end zone. He is still leading the backfield, and it is amazing that he continues to play at the level he does, but for fantasy he is a low end RB2 or flex option at best that will not produce viable numbers without scoring a touchdown. Gore has a high floor, but a very low ceiling for fantasy at this point in his career. However, the Colts match up against the 49ers next week, so Gore should be usable in most formats.

Frank Gore scores again to salvage another quiet day

Frank Gore carried the ball 25 times for 57 yards and found the end zone in the Colts' win over the Browns in Week 3. Gore added one catch for no gain.

Fantasy Impact

This was more of the same from Gore, who has a very low ceiling at this point in his career. Without passing down work or more efficiency, he is one of the more touchdown-dependent players in the league. With an increasingly crowded backfield, Gore doesn't seem a safe bet to find the end zone each week. The Colts brought in former Redskins RB Matt Jones to add depth at the position. Jones could eventually challenge for carries if Gore slows down, but the 25 carries at least indicates safe volume for now.

Frank Gore scores to salvage Week 2 performance

Frank Gore carried the ball 14 times for 46 yards, including a long rush of 13 yards. He also found the end zone once against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Gore continues to show a decent floor but a very low ceiling. Without a touchdown, he is essentially not startable given his volume and efficiency. Gore should be viewed as a fringe flex play or bye week fill. That may change if/when Andrew Luck returns, but for now, he is a tough guy to play each week for fantasy. He at least draws the Browns next week, which might help the game script, so he could be used as a flex play, though a risky one if he doesn't score.
