Frank Gore rushed 13 times for 90 yards, adding two catches for 12 yards in the Dolphins' Week 10 loss to the Packers.
Gore topped 500 yards rushing for a 14th straight season, putting him atop the record books as the only player to do so. Kenyan Drake (shoulder) was forced to exit for a brief stint in the second quarter, but Gore had out-touched him 10-4 to that point, anyhow. Coach Adam Gase has made it clear he wants to keep Gore involved on early downs, simultaneously (and somehow) keeping Drake featured in the Fins' lackluster passing game. It's ultimately resulted in Gore out-touching Drake 36-17 over the last two games. Gore remains a low-upside usage-based play in deeper leagues until further notice. Nov 11 - 8:02 PM

Coach Adam Gase said Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore will "continue splitting that stuff" in the Dolphins' backfield.

This is why bad teams stay bad. Sure, the Dolphins are 3-1, but they're not nearly as good as their record and got straight up embarrassed by the Patriots in Week 4. Drake had three carries that day, and Gore is out-carrying Drake 35-33 on the season. In the offseason, Gase said he wanted Drake to average 15-20 carries and 6-8 targets and the offense to run 70-75 plays per game. The Dolphins are averaging a laughably-bad 50.0 plays per game, 31st in the league ahead of only the Cardinals. Gase is laying blame there. "We're just not getting enough plays," he said. Perhaps Miami would "get enough plays" if the coach started featuring his best player -- Drake.

The Dolphins' Week 1 depth lists Kenyan Drake "or" Frank Gore as the starter at running back.

It's semantics. Coach Adam Gase recently said "hopefully" Drake would get 15-20 carries and 6-8 targets per game. It's quite possible Gore draws the occasional "start" based on the package for the first play, but Drake should lead the backfield in both snaps and touches, hopefully by a significant margin. The Dolphins will be wasting their time if they feature Gore at Drake's expense.

Kenyan Drake and Frank Gore were listed as co-starters on the Dolphins' initial training camp depth chart.

This is somewhat of a surprise after Drake finished last year as Miami's lead ball-carrier, though the Dolphins have been talking up Gore all summer. While it's still hard to imagine Drake actually splitting work with a 35-year-old, it's clear that Gore will have a role this season. His presence downgrades Drake to borderline RB2 status in fantasy leagues.
