Andrew Seifter
FantasyPros
With Devin Singletary looking likely to miss Week 3, old man Gore is suddenly a very intriguing fantasy option against a Bengals run defense that was completely dominated by the 49ers last week. If Singletary is out, Gore can be deployed as a borderline RB2/3. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
Gore had 21 touches last week and he plays the Bengals 32nd ranked fantasy running back defense. He is an upside flex play this week. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
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.
