RB - NYJ
Week 3 Outlook
Frank Gore ran 15 times for 57 yards and caught one pass for a gain of five in the Jets' 36-7 Week 3 loss to the Colts.
The 37-year-old Gore now has a combined 37 touches over the past two weeks. The Jets' offense is struggling mightily these days and it isn't worth starting anyone from Gang Green in fantasy right now. The Broncos are up next.
Frank Gore rushed 21 times for 63 yards in the Jets' Week 2 loss to the 49ers.
He failed to catch either of his two targets. Gore saw a ton of work in this one but the 37-year-old just wasn't that efficient in a struggling Jets offense. It would ultimately be tough to trust Gore as a fantasy asset in Week 3 against the Colts.
RB Frank Gore will “start” Sunday’s game against the 49ers, said Jets’ HC Adam Gase.
As expected, Gore will replace Le’Veon Bell (hamstring) as the Jets starting RB. Bell was placed on the injured reserve and is expected back Week 5. Gore will lead the Jets backfield with La’Michal Perine filling in as a change of pace. Newly signed Kalen Ballage could be in the mix as well. The 37-year-old logged six carries for 24 yards against the Bills in Week 1. Gore is a borderline flex play and currently 51st among all running backs in the latest expert consensus rankings Week 2.
Frank Gore rushed six times for 24 yards as the Jets fell to the Bills 27-17 in Week 1.
Gore had a chance for extended run with Le'Veon Bell (hamstring) sidelined for most of the second half, but the Jets were already in garbage-time mode by then. That means they weren't running the ball with Gore. The 37-year-old (!!) could be in for more work if Bell misses Week 2, but he would only be a low-upside FLEX option.
Frank Gore could split carries out of the Jets’ backfield with Le’Veon Bell, per Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.
Gore will be in the mix for carries in the New York’s backfield. Jets’ HC Adam Gase has always found ways to utilize Gore in his offense. “Adam Gase loves Frank Gore,” per Wolfe. “Wouldn’t be surprised if that backfield is split more than some Jets fans might want. Gore still has some gas in the tank and plays how Gase likes his backs downhill, always moving forward, good vision and pass blocking.” The ageless wonder Gore will carve out a role in the Jets backfield to reduce Bell’s workload. He is currently 81st among all running backs in the latest expert consensus rankings, and is an option in deep-league formats only.
