 This might just be Frank Gore's last game of his career, and while playing him is never sexy, he is a good bet to see 15 to 20 touches for 60+ total yards. That combination makes him a solid RB2 once again.

Still playing for seeding.

The Buccaneers are just 23rd against fantasy quarterbacks, Brees should be a QB1 with the Saints playing for the NFC South title. 
Dan Harris
FantasyPros
Brees, as usual, was excellent from a real-life perspective against the Falcons, but lackluster from a fantasy perspective, with just one touchdown pass and an interception. With a heavy reliance on the running game, it's doubtful that Brees will magically need to air the ball out next weekend against the Bucs. The Saints' playoff seeding can still move around, and they need a win to secure a home game, so expect Brees to be motivated. Still, that should leave him as just a reliable but uninspiring fantasy option.

 In what is likely his last NFL game, put Gore into your lineup. I'm sure the Colts will do everything in their power to ensure he gets into the end zone against the Texans. It should work, too, as the Texans have allowed nine rushing touchdowns in their last five games. We already know he has a semi-decent floor of 50-70 yards.
