With rookie Devin Singletary likely out for this game with a hamstring injury that he suffered in their Week 2 win over the Giants, we should see a healthy dose of Gore in this game with some Yeldon mixed in. The Bengals were completely gashed by the 49ers run-game last week, allowing a combined 244 yards and two touchdowns on 36 carries, and another 84 yards and a touchdown through the air. Through two weeks of the NFL season, the Bengals are allowing 40.8 PPR points per game to running backs. Whether it be the massive 5.40 yards per carry or 8.43 yards per target to them, they're below-average in every major statistical category. Before saying it's too early to tell, they allowed a massive 4.95 yards per carry and 7.39 yards per target last year, which both ranked as the second-most in football. Gore had a great matchup with the Giants last week and totaled 83 total yards and a touchdown, finishing as a top-10 option at the running back position. He has another great matchup on his plate and can be started as a safe floor RB2/3 in this game.

Frank Gore plods to strong fantasy outing

Frank Gore rushed 19 times for 68 yards and a touchdown and caught both of his targets for 15 yards in the Bills' Week 2 win over the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Gore saw extra work after the rookie Devin Singletary left the game with a hamstring injury, and despite an uninspiring performance in every way, delivered value. Gore's volume alone will make him interesting if Singletary misses any time.
