RB - FA
Week 13 Outlook
Frank Gore is open to playing football in 2021 "in the right circumstance," according to Adam Schefter. It would be his 17th season in the league.
Gore is 37-years-young and just entered the 16,000 yard club, joining Emmitt Smith and Walter Payton, in 2020. He's had a remarkably durable and consistent career, only missing three games over his 16 years in the NFL. He logged 653 yards on 187 totes for an average of 3.5 YPC with the Jets this last season. We'll see what the "right circumstance" ends up looking like for Gore but it wouldn't be surprising if ended up retiring either.
Jets RB Frank Gore will not play in Sunday’s Week 17 contest against the Patriots due to a lung contusion.
Gore exited Week 16’s win over the Browns early and was diagnosed with a lung contusion. He became the third player in NFL history to run for 16,000 yards in his career. The 37-year-old RB logged 187 carries for 653 yards in two touchdowns across 15 games in 2020. Gore has only missed three contests in his career and will be a free agent after this season. La’Mical Perine is expected to see additional touches on Sunday while Gore is sidelined.
Frank Gore rushed 14 times for 48 yards in the Jets' Week 16 win over the Browns, adding one catch for a gain of five.
Gore once again out-carried rookie La'Mical Perine. Coach Adam Gase said earlier this year that he wasn't going to turn away from Gore and he has stayed true to his word. Gore will remain off the fantasy radar in Week 17 against the Patriots.
Frank Gore rushed 23 times for 59 yards and a score in the Jets' stunning Week 15 victory over the Rams, adding one reception for a gain of six.
It wasn't an efficient day for Gore, but he still wound up being usable for fantasy purposes thanks to his second rushing score of the season. The Jets clearly aren't going away from the 37-year-old over their last two games, which keeps him in the low-end RB3/4 conversation for deeper league formats. The Browns are a tough Week 16 matchup.
Jets coach Adam Gase says he won't bench Frank Gore this season.
Gore and Ty Johnson each handled eight carries in Week 14. Gase notes that he will continue rotating his running backs for the rest of the year, which obviously limits the fantasy upside for each of them. It is tough to make a case for starting any Jet the rest of the way.
