Now that Lamical Perine has been placed on injured reserve, this backfield is Gore's for what might be his last hurrah, as there's nowhere else for Adam Gase to go. The Jets running backs have combined for just 24.8 touches per game this year, but now that Gore should receieve the majority of them, he's actually playable. He scored his first touchdown in over 230 carries last week, though you shouldn't be relying on that trend to continue. Not only have the Jets running backs only scored four touchdowns the entire season, the Dolphins are one of just six teams who've allowed less than 21.0 points per game to their opponents (20.2), so scoring opportunities haven't been easy to come by. Now, with that being said, they have allowed the sixth-most fantasy points per weighted opportunity this year, allowing 4.61 yards per carry and 6.55 yards per target, which are both well above the league average. They've allowed just 13 passing touchdowns through 10 games, but have allowed eight rushing touchdowns to running backs, so it's clear they're more of a reverse funnel defense. The last time these two teams met, Gore finished with 70 total yards on 15 touches, which was enough for the RB22 performance. Oddly enough, he should be locked into more touches this week, which puts him right smack in the middle of the RB3 range, just don't play him looking for upside.

Frank Gore totals 21 touches in loss to Dolphins

Frank Gore rushed 18 times for 74 yards and caught 3-of-3 targets for 12 yards in the Jets' 20-3 Week 12 loss to the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Gore had the backfield to himself with La'Mical Perine currently on injured reserve. He did most of his damage in the first half, and his 74 rushing yards are a new season-high. Gore will remain a low-ceiling FLEX play in Week 13 against the Raiders.
