With the way Gore has played, it seems unlikely Devin Singletary will take over the lead role. Over the three games Gore filled the workhorse role, he totaled 245 yards on 45 carries (5.4 yards per carry) with one touchdown, though T.J. Yeldon did take on most of the receiving work. We've only seen 10 carries in Singletary's young career, so it may be a bit premature to say he'll take over anyway. Fortunately, both running backs should see a lot of carries in this game against the Dolphins. Their opponents are averaging 31.2 carries per game, and that's not even counting the 4.6 receptions available to them. The craziest part is that the Dolphins have already had their bye week, yet there are just two teams who have faced more rushing attempts. Not a single team of running backs have totaled less than 27 rushing attempts. They've been high-quality attempts, too, as the Dolphins have allowed a flattering 4.80 yards per carry with at least one rushing touchdown in 4-of-5 games. Even through the air, they're allowing a lot of efficiency, as running backs have averaged a league-leading 2.69 PPR points per target against them. The Bills have capped Gore at 19 carries over the first five games, so worse case scenario, we're probably looking at 10-12 touches for Singletary. Gore should be startable as a solid high-floor RB3 who should be a lock for 80-plus total yards.

Frank Gore quiet in low-scoring win

Frank Gore rushed 14 times for 60 yards and caught both of his targets for nine yards in the Bills' Week 5 win over the Titans.

Fantasy Impact

Gore remained clearly the lead back with rookie Devin Singletary still sidelined. He continued carrying the ball with decent success but saw limited receiving work. Without a touchdown, his fantasy line is underwhelming, which should come as no surprise. After the Week 6 bye, Gore will be in a nice spot in Week 7 against the Dolphins, with or without Singletary back in the fold.
