Frank Gore had 22 carries for 106 yards and caught one pass for two yards in the Colts' Week 6 loss to the Texans.
It's the first 100-yard rusher the Colts have had since 2012. Gore was more involved with Dwayne Allen and Phillip Dorsett sidelined. It's the fifth straight game Gore has rushed for 60-plus yards or a touchdown, and he set season highs in both yards and carries. The Colts should remain committed to their run game if Allen and Dorsett can't return next week. Oct 17 - 12:42 AM

Frank Gore rushed 14 times for 75 yards in Week 5 against Chicago.

He wasn't involved in the pass game, managing one catch for four yards. Gore had a solid game despite limited opportunities. He passed Jim Brown for ninth all-time in rushing with the performance. Gore will be more of a low-end RB2 for Week 6 against the Texans.
Oct 9 - 4:53 PM

Frank Gore (chest) has been removed from the Colts' injury report.

Gore practiced fully the last two days after he was held out Wednesday. He's a top-15 play for Week 5.
Oct 7 - 7:30 PM

Frank Gore (chest) returned to practice Thursday.

He got in a "full" session. Gore sat out Wednesday, but it was likely just a rest day for the veteran. He'll be good to go against the Bears.
Oct 6 - 11:41 AM

Frank Gore (chest) didn't practice on Wednesday.

We weren't aware of any preexisting injury as Gore played his usual snaps Sunday against Jacksonville. Under normal circumstances the Colts would be off this week but for reasons unbeknown to us, they elected to play the week following a game in London. Gore has scored a touchdown in three straight games and has been a consistent RB2 in fantasy. There's a good chance Wednesday was just a maintenance day for the veteran but fantasy owners will need to monitor his status throughout the week.
Oct 5 - 4:13 PM

Frank Gore rushed 16 times for 68 yards and a touchdown Week 4 against the Jaguars.

He added another 27 yards on five catches. Gore was one of the few offensive bright spots in a dreadful game. He consistently created yards on his own despite the passing game not giving the Jaguars much to think about. His one-yard score came after Dwayne Allen drew a pass interference call near the end zone in the fourth quarter. The result was not what Gore wanted, but he did vault past Marcus Allen, Edgerrin James, and Marshall Faulk on the all-time rushing list. He will likely jump Jim Brown when he faces the Bears next week.
Oct 2 - 1:30 PM

Frank Gore rushed 21 times for 81 yards and one touchdown in the Colts' Week 3 win over the Chargers.

He caught 1-of-3 targets for one yard. Gore looked to be well on his way to his first 100-yard rushing game with the Colts after a 70-yard first half, but the Colts went away from his for some reason and went to Josh Ferguson and the passing game with very little success. Gore ran through massive holes in the first quarter, particularly. This matchup was as good as it will get for Gore this season. He'll be back on the back-end RB2 map next week in London versus Jacksonville.
Sep 25 - 8:08 PM

Frank Gore handled 13 carries for 44 yards while delivering three catches for 19 yards and a touchdown on three targets in the Colts' Week 2 loss to the Broncos.

He disappeared for a while, ceding work to Robert Turbin and Josh Ferguson during a stretch in the second half. The veteran plodder was bottled up for the most part, though he salvaged his afternoon with a terrific seven-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Andrew Luck hit him with a screen pass and Gore did the rest, squirming out of Darian Stewart’s grasp and keeping his balance with some tightrope work down the left sideline. Gore waved goodbye to his prime a long time ago but his workload makes him a useful RB2/3 in fantasy. He has a much easier slate against the Chargers in Week 3.
Sep 18 - 8:27 PM

Frank Gore rushed 14 times for 59 yards and caught 4-of-6 targets for 19 yards in the Colts' Week 1 loss to Detroit.

Gore's 18 touches dwarfed Robert Turbin's three and Josh Ferguson's three. The Colts' lack of a competent No. 2 running back secures Gore's workload, even if his lack of big-play ability limits Gore's ceiling. For Week 2 against Denver, Gore will be best viewed as a flex option as opposed to a fantasy RB2.
Sep 11 - 8:33 PM

Frank Gore managed six yards on four carries and missed his lone target in the Colts' third preseason game.

The Colts' line managed no push against Philadelphia's underrated defensive front, so Gore went nowhere during his short stay on the field. More troubling, the Colts lost stud LG Jack Mewhort to a season-ending torn ACL. We have liked Gore as a value pick all offseason, but that is contingent on Indy's offense rebounding and Andrew Luck staying healthy. The line is a real issue.
Aug 27 - 10:42 PM

Colts OC Rob Chudzinski says Frank Gore's weekly carries will be managed based on "feel" this season.

There will be no "pitch count" for Gore, which means he'll likely get as many carries as he can handle assuming he stays effective. "I don't like the word 'pitch count,'" said Chudzinski. "But I think the word is we have to be smart in making sure that we have a rotation that keeps (Gore) fresh and effective throughout the course of the season. What that is in numbers isn't as important. I think, as a coach, you assess that as you're going through the course of the season." Gore is shaping up as one of this year's best targets in the sixth and seventh rounds.
Jul 31 - 7:42 PM

ESPN Colts reporter Mike Wells says the team wants to "lighten" Frank Gore's workload this season.

It makes sense with Gore entering his age-33 season, but it's unclear which backs would "lighten" Gore's workload. Appearing on Mike Clay's Sirius show, Wells mentioned UDFA Josh Ferguson "first" when asked about a change-of-pace option behind Gore. Ultimately, Gore's workload will likely be dictated by his effectiveness. He should open the year as an every-down back.
Jul 19 - 12:20 PM

Frank Gore says he uses critics doubting his ability to produce at age 33 as motivation in his offseason training.

"Believe me, I listen," said Angry Frank. "When I hear it, that’s when I attack my training. When I’m tired, I tell myself what the people are saying about me. In that second workout when I’m saying, ‘Man, I don’t want to do this,’ I remind myself, ‘They’re saying you’re old. They’re saying you’re 33. They’re saying you can’t do it this year.’" Gore is doing two-a-days training at least three times per week. He is 240 yards shy of cracking the NFL's ten all-time leading rushers.
Jul 17 - 12:46 PM

Frank Gore says he’s aiming for a 1,000-yard season.

The Colts haven’t had a 1,000-yard rusher since 2007. Andrew Luck's healthy return boosts the offense's outlook tremendously, however, while stud first-round C Ryan Kelly should additionally make Gore's life easier between the tackles. Gore has very little competition for carries and running back targets in Indy. With his ADP down several rounds from last year, Gore has the potential to be a bargain, even at age 33.
Jun 18 - 6:12 PM

The Redskins' John Riggins, in 1984, was the last running back age 33 or older to rush for 1,000 yards in a season.

Frank Gore turns 33 on Saturday and is still steaming over rushing for just 967 yards last year. "When that didn’t happen, that was really, really frustrating," Gore said. "I'm not over it. I'm not going to be over it until I do it. I've been blessed that they kept me to get the opportunity to do it again." The Colts did very little to add to their backfield, leaving Gore in a potential every-down role. The additions of first-round C Ryan Kelly and third-round OT Le'Raven Clark and return of Andrew Luck to full health will help loosen things up for Gore.
