Frank Gore rushed 17 times for 54 yards in the Colts' Week 10 loss to the Steelers, adding a seven-yard reception.
For the second straight week, Gore soundly out-touched and out-gained Marlon Mack. Of course, it scarcely mattered from a fantasy perspective, as Gore averaged 3.17 yards per carry and remained stuck on two touchdowns for the season. He'll be a low-end FLEX play against the Titans when the Colts come off bye in Week 12. Nov 12 - 5:30 PM

Frank Gore rushed 17 times for 51 yards in the Colts' Week 9 win over the Texans, adding three receptions for 26 additional yards.

Five days after not getting traded, Gore tallied his second most carries of the season. He out-touched Marlon Mack 20-9, and out-gained him 77-29. Per Pro Football Focus, Gore out-snapped his rookie teammate 40-27. This, after Mack was on the field for more plays each of the past two weeks. It was a nice effort in a narrow Colts victory, but this should remain a musical chairs that renders Gore little more than a low-upside RB3/FLEX.
Nov 5 - 5:47 PM

The Indianapolis Star reports the Colts discussed Frank Gore with the Eagles before Tuesday's trade deadline.

The Eagles ended up thinking bigger and acquiring Jay Ajayi. The Colts seemed to make everyone available — with T.Y. Hilton, Vontae Davis and Donte Moncrief joining Gore — but ended up standing pat. The Colts could eventually cut 34-year-old Gore, but he would be subject to waivers. Every player is after the trade deadline.
Oct 31 - 5:41 PM

The Indianapolis Star's Stephen Holder reports "at least two teams" have expressed interest in trading for Frank Gore.

Gore is 34 and in the final year of his deal with a bottom-barrel team. He doesn't have much left in the tank, and the Colts are probably more than willing to move forward with Marlon Mack atop the depth chart. Gore is coming off his best rushing game of the season, amassing 82 yards against the Bengals on Sunday. He'd likely be very receptive to the idea of joining a contender.
Oct 30 - 7:02 PM

Frank Gore rushed 16 times for 82 yards while catching four balls for 19 yards on four targets Sunday in the Colts’ Week 8 loss to the Bengals.

This was Gore’s best outing of the year by a pretty significant margin as his previous season-best was only 57 rushing yards on 25 carries against the Browns in Week 3. Gore showed burst not usually seen in a 34-year-old running back, particularly in the first half when he averaged over five yards per carry (39 yards on seven rushes). He also played a significant role in the passing game on a day when Jacoby Brissett mostly settled for check-downs and screens. It was good to see Gore showing signs of life, though impressive rookie Marlon Mack is here to stay and should push for a bigger piece of the rushing pie as the Colts fall further and further out of contention. Gore won’t be anything more than an RB3 next week against Houston.
Oct 29 - 5:54 PM

Frank Gore rushed nine times for 34 yards in Week 7 against the Jaguars.

It was another nondescript week from Gore, who's been held under 60 yards in every game. Gore didn't have any targets, and was a non-factor in the second half with Indy abandoning the run. Gore's 3.4 YPC is among the worst in the league. With the Colts falling out of the AFC South, it's only a matter of time before Marlon Mack takes over the backfield.
Oct 22 - 4:29 PM

Frank Gore rushed 10 times for 49 yards in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Titans.

He caught 2-of-3 targets for 18 yards in the pass game. The Colts said they wanted to get rookie Marlon Mack more involved on offense after his big Week 5, but it was Gore and fellow vet Robert Turbin getting all the work. Mack carried the ball just two times. Gore has now rushed between 46 and 57 yards in each of the past five games. He's been consistently average.
Oct 17 - 12:28 AM

Frank Gore rushed 14 times for 48 yards in the Colts' Week 5 win over the 49ers.

He caught 3-of-4 targets for an additional 38 yards against his old team. Gore had the narrative going for him, but he really just doesn't make much happen anymore. Rookie Marlon Mack returned from a multi-week should injury and ran circles around Gore, amassing 91 yards and one touchdown on nine carries. Expect close to an even split between the two the rest of the way should Mack stay healthy. Gore will be a weak RB3 next Monday night at Tennessee.
Oct 8 - 5:24 PM

Frank Gore has seen fewer carries than Marlon Mack and Robert Turbin inside the ten-yard line.

Gore’s 3.1 YPC is fourth-worst among qualified starters, behind only Isaiah Crowell, Joe Mixon, and Paul Perkins. The Colts run game has played a role in their early-year struggles, with Indy blowing two halftime leads the last three weeks. Even in a narrative matchup with the 49ers, Gore is a low-upside play.
Oct 6 - 7:12 PM

Frank Gore rushed 12 times for 46 yards and caught three passes for 34 yards in Week 4 against Seattle.

The total yards look good, but Gore didn't do much outside a couple of screen passes. He's now been held under 60 yards in every game and is averaging 3.1 YPC. The Colts are going nowhere with Gore and need to start looking to the future with him on an expiring deal. Marlon Mack (shoulder) could be ready to return next week.
Oct 2 - 12:09 AM

Frank Gore carried 25 times for 57 yards and a touchdown with one reception for no gain Week 3 against the Browns.

It was the second consecutive game in which Gore found the end zone. Room was consistently scare as Gore had a 21-yard run mixed in. Through three games, Gore has now totaled 46, 52 and 57 yards from scrimmage. He will be a flex only option Week 4 at Seattle.
Sep 24 - 5:03 PM

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.
Sep 10 - 8:15 PM

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.
Aug 26 - 10:44 PM

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.
