Colts | Backup running back unclear in Indy

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 14:40:10 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore is the unquestioned starter for the Colts, but his backup remains to be seen. ESPN.com's Mike Wells did mention RB Josh Ferguson first for the position, however.

Fantasy Tip: Ferguson has plenty of upside and would make for a nice complement to Gore. He has yet to prove himself, but taking him in the late middle rounds isn't a bad strategy with the potential he has.

Colts | Fewer touches for Frank Gore?

Tue, 19 Jul 2016 14:32:36 -0700

The Indianapolis Colts want RB Frank Gore to have a lightened workload in 2016, according to ESPN.com's Mike Wells.

Fantasy Tip: This should have been anticipated as Gore is 33 years old and entering his 12th NFL season. If he can stay healthy he should still be in contention for 1,000 rushing yards and at least a handful of scores. Drafting him as an RB3 would be ideal.

Colts | Frank Gore still motivated

Sun, 17 Jul 2016 11:21:31 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore uses critics to stay motivated at 33 years old. "When I hear it, that's when I attack my training," Gore said. "When I'm tired, I tell myself what the people are saying about me." Gore works out twice a day, adding football-specific field work to his usual workout involving speed, agility and strength training. Gore said working out more makes his mind stronger heading into training camp.

Fantasy Tip: Not many running backs succeed at Gore's age, but something has to be said for his work ethic, determination and sustainability. If he can stay healthy, Gore is capable of achieving low-end RB2 to high-end RB3 numbers.

Colts | Healthy teammates to help Frank Gore

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 18:40:19 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore's yards per carry fell from 4.1 to 3.5 when QB Andrew Luck was out of the lineup, and he averaged just 2.7 yards per carry in the three games OT Anthony Castonzo missed.

Fantasy Tip: He fell just short of 1,000 yards last season, and a healthy Luck could pay big dividends for the Gore. His age is a red flag, but Gore is still worth a look as a RB3 as the clear starter in Indianapolis.

Colts | Frank Gore training hard

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 18:11:17 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore said he hears the naysayers who question if he can produce at his age, and he uses the doubters as motivation to "attack" his training. "I try to do two workouts three times a week," Gore said. "(In the second workouts), I do more agility, jump cuts, moves, working my feet in small spaces. Just trying to imitate like when I'm in the hole."

Fantasy Tip: The last time a running back Gore's age or older rushed for 1,000 yards was in 1984, so the odds aren't in his favor. A healthy Andrew Luck should help free up Gore and the running game, but don't count on him being more than a RB3 in 2016.

Colts | Frank Gore wants 1,000 yards

Sun, 19 Jun 2016 12:10:20 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore is eyeing the 1,000-yard mark in 2016 at 33 years old. Gore is more determined this year after just missing 1,000 rushing yards last season at 967 yards. "I just have to start taking care of my body, eating healthy, start training to get myself ready and to try to go get it," Gore said.

Fantasy Tip: Intentions and goals are all well and good, but history has not been kind to starting running backs at Gore's age. If he can play a full season, he'll have a chance, but he should still be drafted as an RB3.

Colts | Frank Gore expected back

Tue, 16 Feb 2016 07:02:31 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore is expected to return to the Colts as their primary back in 2016.

Fantasy Tip: Gore had little to work with in 2015 behind that offensive line, and he'll be 33. So while his best days are behind him, he could remain a productive back if the team shores up the line. He could come at a value as an RB3 in drafts next season.

Colts | Frank Gore to have surgery

Mon, 04 Jan 2016 13:47:19 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore (finger) will undergo surgery on a broken finger on his left hand.

Fantasy Tip: Gore should hold his head up high for the statistics he put up despite the beating he took this year at 32 years old. Gore was probably one of the main focuses of opposing defenses this year with Andrew Luck injured. Gore's 1,200+ total yards and seven total touchdowns were good enough for RB1 status in standard scoring leagues.

Colts | Frank Gore rushes for 76 yards

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 14:51:42 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore had 19 carries for 76 yards and no touchdowns in a 30-24 win over the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, Jan. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Gore missed out on a chance to become the team's first 1,000-yard rusher since 2007, but he did energize a formerly staid running game. He is signed for two more seasons, and Gore figures to be the lead back going into 2016. He will likely be drafted towards the middle rounds in fantasy leagues.

Colts | Frank Gore has chance at 1,000 yards

Sat, 02 Jan 2016 05:52:45 -0800

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore needs 109 yards in the Week 17 game against the Tennessee Titans to become the first Colts running back since 2007 to record 1,000 yards in a season. Gore's season high in rushing yards is 98 yards.

Fantasy Tip: Gore ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) is coming off a two-touchdown performance in Week 16 but has rushed for more than 60 yards in only two of the last six games. He will be facing a tough Titans run defense and is not a great option for fantasy owners.
