You want to say that Gore wouldn't have gone to the Dolphins to just sit on the bench in his final year, but it's hard seeing him receive many touches with youngsters Kenyan Drake and Kalen Ballage on the roster. But still, why would the Dolphins sign him if they weren't planning on at least using him in a 8-10 touch per game role? It's an odd situation for sure, but knowing that Gore has averaged just 3.8 yards per carry over the last three years makes your life easier. His best days are behind him and he's playing behind what will be one of the worst offensive lines in his career. You're better off looking for someone who presents actual upside late in drafts.

Frank Gore's age is irrelevant to Adam Gase

In a recent interview with PalmBeachPost, Dolphins head coach Adam Gase was asked about Frank Gore being 35 years old this season. His response was, "It's irrelevant. He's a different dude."

Fantasy Impact

It was puzzling when the Dolphins signed Gore, so this should really come as no shock. Gase was on the same team as Gore back in 2008 when he served as an offensive assistant on the 49ers, so there is a history between the two. Still, it'd be odd if Gase decided to take away touches from 2017's breakout star Kenyan Drake, who has totaled 823 yards on 166 career carries behind a sub-par offensive line to this point (5.0 yards per carry), while Gore has averaged just 3.8 yards per carry over the last three years. Gore is the type of running back who will hold a lead for your team by not losing yards on carries, but the Dolphins (similar to the Colts in 2017) are not a team that is built for that. We'd be shocked if Gore averaged more than 30 percent of the snaps this season, making him a non-factor in fantasy. Meanwhile, Drake should be considered a low-end RB2.
