Colts | Frank Gore praises Andrew Luck

Thu, 27 Aug 2015 18:28:19 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore called QB Andrew Luck a "football god" that runs meetings like a coach. "He sees everything. He sees the big picture of everything. He lets me know when [there's] something I don't see. He's just different. How he's in the huddle, off the field, in the meetings, he runs it. He runs the show, even in the off-season, he ran it."

Fantasy Tip: Luck should be one of the first quarterbacks selected in drafts, and Gore should produce RB2 numbers with defenses focused on shutting down Indianapolis' passing attack.

Colts | Chuck Pagano praises Frank Gore

Thu, 20 Aug 2015 19:34:16 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore was praised by head coach Chuck Pagano for his all-around ability. "He knows his stuff," Pagano said. "He's great with the ball in his hands. He's great without the ball in his hands. Great receiver out of the backfield. He does a lot of things really, really well."

Fantasy Tip: Age isn't on his side, but Gore has landed in a great situation in Indianapolis. He averaged 4.3 yards per carry last year despite defenses loading up to stop him, and he should have no trouble producing RB2 numbers with defenses focused on slowing down Andrew Luck and the passing attack.

Colts | Frank Gore should see more running room

Fri, 17 Jul 2015 20:04:17 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore faced eight-plus defenders in the box more than any other running back in his final season with the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Tip: Despite consistently facing defenses designed to shut him down, Gore finished with 255 carries for 1,106 yards and averaged 4.3 yards per carry. Now that Andrew Luck is his quarterback, Gore should have a lot more running room in 2015. He should make a solid RB2.

Colts | Frank Gore appears to be fresh

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 21:20:15 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore was in attendance for nearly all of the team's voluntary workouts, and he displayed a dedication that is not necessarily expected of such an established player. He appears fresh and is as motivated as ever.

Fantasy Tip: Gore appears to have plenty left in the tank, and that’s good news for the Colts who have just Boom Herron, Josh Robinson and Vick Ballard behind him, not exactly a who’s who of tailbacks.

Colts | Frank Gore misses practice

Wed, 03 Jun 2015 19:18:36 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore was not in attendance at the team's voluntary organized team activities Wednesday, June 3, according to Colts head coach Chuck Pagano. No reason was given for Gore's absence, but Pagano stressed the practices are voluntary and that Gore is not injured.

Fantasy Tip: Gore likely is taking time away as a veteran often does during OTAs. Count on him as a low-end RB2 or ideal flex back in most fantasy formats in 2015.

Colts | Frank Gore transitioning smoothly

Thu, 21 May 2015 05:37:47 -0700

Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore was made a "pretty seamless" transition to the Colts' offense and is displaying strong knowledge of the playbook, according to head coach Chuck Pagano.

Fantasy Tip: At 32, Gore's best years are likely in the rear-view mirror. However, a slight resurgence with his attachment to a strong offense isn't out of the question, especially in the touchdown department. Additionally, FantasyScore players and PPR owners will be interested to find out how Gore is planned to be utilized in the passing game, so check back for updates on that front. He has snatched just 27 passes over the past two seasons, after all. He should be drafted as a low-end No. 2 running back in traditional formats, and unless you're expecting a huge spike in receptions, Gore is best suited as a No. 3 back in PPR leagues.

Colts | Frank Gore agrees with Colts

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 15:13:55 -0700

Free-agent RB Frank Gore (49ers) officially agreed to terms on a deal Tuesday, March 10, that will guarantee him $8.5 million.

Fantasy Tip: Gore is entering his age-32 season, but he has still managed 1,000-yard rushing seasons in eight of the last nine years with the San Francisco 49ers. Gore is expected to share touches behind Andrew Luck with Daniel Herron and possibly Ahmad Bradshaw if he's re-signed. Gore's days as an RB1 are long in the rearview, but he can be valuable as running back depth, especially if he's used often in the red zone by what should be an explosive Colts offense yet again.

Colts | Frank Gore planning to join Colts

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 09:25:43 -0700

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent RB Frank Gore is planning to sign with the Indianapolis Colts, according to a source. His deal is expected to be for three years and $12 million, with $7.5 million guaranteed.

Fantasy Tip: Gore switched course last minute and spurned the Philadelphia Eagles for the Colts and Andrew Luck. Trent Richardson is out of the picture in Indy's backfield, and Gore will likely split time with Daniel "boom" Herron behind Luck in 2015. Gore has reached 1,000 yards rushing in eight of the last nine seasons, and he can still be productive at his advanced age. However, because he's likely sharing touches, he shouldn't be considered anything more than a low-end RB2 or safer RB3.

Colts | Frank Gore to visit Colts

Tue, 10 Mar 2015 09:12:02 -0700

San Francisco 49ers impending free-agent RB Frank Gore is traveling to visit with the Indianapolis Colts Tuesday, March 10, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Gore spurned the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday and looks primed to sign with the Colts now. It'll be a much better situation for him behind one of the game's best young quarterbacks. Gore will likely split the workload in the backfield, though, and he profiles best as an RB3 in fantasy drafts this year.
