Frank Gore rushed 14 times for 46 yards and a touchdown in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Cardinals.
He missed his two targets in the passing game. Gore out-touched Marlon Mack (7) and Robert Turbin (4), but this remains an RBBC backfield on a team that isn't going to score many points until Andrew Luck (shoulder) returns. Gore will be a low-end RB2/flex option in Week 3 against the Browns. Sep 17 - 4:58 PM

Frank Gore compiled 42 yards on 10 carries while adding one catch for 10 yards Sunday in the Colts’ Week 1 loss to the Rams.

Gore didn’t do anything especially noteworthy and barely saw the field in the second half with the Colts down by a colossal margin. Seven of his 10 carries came before halftime. Marlon Mack received Indy’s lone goal-line carry, which is obviously a concern for Gore’s usage going forward. Game script worked against Gore today and that should continue to be a problem with Andrew Luck out for the foreseeable future. He gets the Cardinals at home in Week 2.

Frank Gore racked up 23 yards and a touchdown on five carries Saturday in the Colts’ third preseason game.

The oldest running back in the game looked surprisingly spry in Indy’s dress rehearsal. He chewed up gains of 10 and 11 yards on the Colts’ second drive and also punched in a goal-line touchdown. Gore isn’t someone fantasy owners will be jumping out of their seats to draft but remains an RB3 consideration in most formats.

CBS 4 Indy's Mike Chappell expects Frank Gore to remain the Colts' "workhorse" this season.

Chappell acknowledges Robert Turbin and perhaps rookie Marlon Mack could or even will help with the running back load, but Gore looks to be in no danger of losing his lead-back job. A concern for Gore's 2017 upside is Turbin's superior 2016 red-zone efficiency. Whereas Turbin converted 5-of-10 carries inside the five-yard line into touchdowns, Gore went 2-for-10 on such opportunities.

Colts coach Chuck Pagano said adding a young runner is "paramount."

Frank Gore remained reasonably effective last season, but he will turn 34 in May and is clearly trending downward. Indy did re-sign Robert Turbin earlier this month, but they need to look toward the future at the position. It will not be surprising if the Colts spend an early pick on a running back.

Frank Gore rushed 16 times for 62 yards in the Colts' Week 17 win over the Jaguars, adding two receptions for 14 additional yards.

Gore finishes the year with 1,025 yards rushing, making him the first back 33 years or older to have a 1K campaign since John Riggins in 1984. That is not to say Gore had an electric season. He averaged 3.89 yards per carry, making 2016 the second time in two years as a Colt he failed to crack the 4.0 barrier. Gore was too big a part of the Colts' offense, and needs to be a committee member if he continues his career in 2017. He's signed for $3.5 million in Indy, a number the team will probably try to bring down.
Jan 1 - 4:52 PM

Frank Gore had 13 carries for 73 yards in Week 16 against the Raiders.

He added one catch for 12 yards. Gore was effective early but didn't do much in the second half. He lost some red-zone work to Robert Turbin, who caught a three-yard touchdown. Gore has rushed for at least 70 yards or a touchdown in four straight weeks. He has a matchup with Jacksonville in Week 17.

Frank Gore rushed 26 times for 101 yards and caught 4-of-4 targets for 14 yards in the Colts' Week 15 win over the Vikings.

The Colts' game plan was very clear from the outset. They played Ground 'N Pound, Keepaway football on the back of Gore, who totaled 115 yards even though he was vultured twice inside the six-yard line by Robert Turbin. Gore isn't a big-play threat at age 33, but he can still be effective as a chain-moving runner. He'll be a high-floor RB2 play in Week 16 against the Raiders.

Frank Gore rushed 10 times for 41 yards and caught two passes for 33 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Texans.

Gore's touchdown came on an 18-yard screen the Texans didn't cover. He didn't have a huge workload with the Colts playing from behind. Gore has 70-plus total yards or a touchdown in seven of his last eight games. He's an RB2 for Week 15 against the Vikings.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 04:51:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed 20 times for 79 yards in the Colts' Week 13 win over the Jets.

He didn't catch a pass. Gore was running with ease in the first half, turning 12 carries into 57 yards before the break. The holes got smaller after the break, but the Colts were already up 24-3, and the Jets knew the Colts would be running more. He barely played in the fourth quarter with the game well in hand. Gore will be rock-solid RB2 next week at home against the Texans.

Frank Gore tallied 28 yards on 15 carries while catching his only target for three yards Thursday in the Colts' Week 12 loss to the Steelers.

It was easily Gore’s worst game of the season. Gore gave his desperate fantasy owners a faint glimmer of hope in the second quarter with a pair of goal-line carries but was unable to find the end zone. A similar scenario played out in the third quarter when the Colts turned the ball over on downs at the one-yard line. Gore got off to a decent start this year but has predictably worn down over his last few outings. He has a tough matchup coming up against the Jets in Week 13.
Fri, Nov 25, 2016 01:05:00 AM

Frank Gore rushed 18 times for 50 yards and caught four passes for 71 yards in Week 11 against the Titans.

Gore struggled to get anything in the run game, with his biggest play going for eight yards. He got most of his receiving on a wide open 49-yard catch in the flats. Gore was stuffed on his goal-line chances and had Robert Turbin vulture a touchdown. Despite not scoring, his total yards and volume continue to be solid. Gore is an RB2 for Thursday's night matchup with the Steelers.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 05:08:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed 19 times for 60 yards and two touchdowns in the Colts' Week 9 win over the Packers.

He added 11 yards on two catches. Gore was surprisingly effective against one of the better run defenses in the league, consistently gaining positive yardage and putting Indy in good spots with a couple big runs. One of the most consistent backs in fantasy, Gore now has at least 78 total yards or a touchdown in every game this season. He will once again be a solid RB2 against the Titans after the bye.
Sun, Nov 6, 2016 07:43:00 PM

Colts OC Rob Chudzinski said he "absolutely" wants to get Frank Gore more touches this week.

Gore was limited to a season-low nine carries in Week 8, though he salvaged the day for fantasy owners by contributing his fifth touchdown of the season. As good as he's been, the 33 year old will be at risk of breaking down if the Colts give him more work than he's already been getting. Gore will be a strong RB2 against the Packers this week.
Thu, Nov 3, 2016 01:55:00 PM

Frank Gore rushed nine times for 37 yards and caught 2-of-3 passes for 25 yards and a touchdown in Week 8 against the Chiefs.

Gore didn't have much volume in a game the Colts played from behind. He salvaged his day with an 18-yard touchdown catch where he broke two tackles to score. Gore has been locked in with at least 75 total yards or a touchdown in seven straight games. Even in a tough matchup, he's an RB2 for Week 9 against the Packers.
