Frank Gore carries the load in Week 14

Frank Gore logged an incredible 36 carries for 130 yards in the Colts' Week 14 loss to the Bills in a blizzard. He added one catch on one target for 10 yards.

Fantasy Impact

This game was played in about 6-8 inches of snow, while more was falling, so the passing games were seriously limited. Jacoby Brissett attempted 22 passes, which is more than the Bills, but still low. Gore was the clear lead back in this game, surrendering only 7 carries to Marlon Mack. As usual, Gore was not very efficient, but the volume given the circumstances more than made up for it. Given Gore's huge workload and the fact that the Colts host the Broncos on a short week for Thursday Night Football, Gore is a risky play, as it's not impossible his workload will be reduced.

Frank Gore surprises no one in Week 13 loss

Frank Gore carried the ball 13 times for 61 yards in the Colts' Week 13 loss to the Jaguars. He fumbled once, but the Colts retained possession.

Fantasy Impact

This is the same story we see every week for Gore essentially, except he didn't get targeted in the passing game. Gore has a nice floor, but almost no ceiling, as he has for this whole season. He's an RB3 at best next week in Buffalo, but he's not going to win you a matchup, much less a championship with his limited upside. There's always the chance that the Colts lean on Marlon Mack more in the last few weeks to see what the rookie can do and see what they have in him. Coaches seem to do that less than expected, but it's worth noting.

Frank Gore scores in Week 12 loss

Frank Gore rushed 17 times for 62 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 12 loss to the Titans. Gore added a pair of receptions on five targets for 17 yards.

Fantasy Impact

This was one of Gore's stronger performances this year, as he's rarely found the end zone. Gore continues to show a high floor because of his reliable volume and durability, but without scoring touchdowns, his upside is very limited, as his efficiency continues to be well below the league average. Gore remains a reliable but unexciting flex option at best next week against the Jaguars.

Frank Gore is very Frank Gore in Week 10

Frank Gore carried 17 times for 54 yards and added one catch on his only target for seven yards.

Fantasy Impact

There's not really much to say here. Frank Gore is ultra-consistent, but has essentially no upside. If you want to get high single-digit output from an RB2 or Flex play, this is your guy. Otherwise, look elsewhere. Gore doesn't even have scoring upside, as he has zero goal line carries this year to Marlon Mack's three. For those who have a solid starting lineup, Gore can safely be dropped for a higher upside player, or at least traded for one. Gore is unlikely to carry anyone to a fantasy championship this year.

Frank Gore continues plodding in Week 9 win

Frank Gore carried the ball 17 times for 51 yards and caught three of four targets for 26 yards in the Colts' Week 9 win over the Texans.

Fantasy Impact

Gore's efficiency is remarkably low, but he continues to see reliable volume and presents a floor that makes him worthy of flex consideration each week. Gore is not likely to win you a championship, but provides nice consistency if your roster has other upside players. At this point in the year, Gore owners should also have Marlon Mack as an insurance policy. Now is a good time to acquire Mack after a quiet game. Next week, though, Gore should be avoided in a tough matchup against the Steelers.
