2019 RTSports Outlook

Gore hurt his foot late in the year and missed the last two games. He started much of the rest of the season, though, and produced decent numbers in that starting role. He ran for more than 700 yards and averaged 4.6 yards per carry, which was highest yards per carry total since 2009. The fantasy issue for Gore was a lack of scores, scoring just one touchdown in 14 games despite starting. Gore is 36 years old and doesn't plan to retire but you have to wonder what role he can play at this stage of his career. He will need to prove he has something left in the tank during camp and preseason action to earn a role with his new team, the Bills. In his prime, Gore was an explosive back. He has good speed and moves in the open field. He has big-play potential and does well in the passing game. His game has slipped some in recent years but he has shown he can still help.

FANTASY OUTLOOK:   It would be a shock to see Gore repeat last year. He will be lucky to get 500 total yards in a reserve role for the Bills. Go with younger options with more upside.

RotoBaller's Outlook

While he's likely ticketed for the Hall of Fame, Frank Gore has nothing going for him as a fantasy asset in 2019. At age 36, Gore is a glorified player-coach at this point, as he's perhaps the least likely of the four Bills running backs (LeSean McCoy, T.J. Yeldon, rookie Devin Singletary) to get touches even if LeSean McCoy were to miss time. He was still effective on a per-touch basis last season (4.6 YPC, 2.3 YAC), but he simply won't see anywhere near enough volume to make any kind of fantasy impact this season. Gore should go undrafted in just about any format.

Player Notes
Oct 20 5:53pm ET

Buffalo Bills RB Frank Gore rushed for 55 yards on 11 carries against the Miami Dolphins in Week 7. He also caught one pass for 11 yards during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Gore has received at least 10 carries in every game this season and will continue to be the main option in the running game for the Bills. He could be a flex option in standard leagues next week but could also be benched if better options are available.

From TheHuddle

Oct 20 5:00pm ET

Miami Dolphins running back Frank Gore carried the ball 11 times for 55 yards and caught his only target for 11 yards in Week 7's victory over the Dolphins. The team's No. 2 running back Devin Singletary made his return this week after missing the team's previous three games and earned seven carries, gaining 26 yards. Singletary wasn't as effective as Gore, averaging 3.7 yards per carry compared to Gore's 5.0 yard per carry. Gore should remain the team's No.1 running back for now, but with Singletary back in the picture, Gore likely won't be getting as heavy of a workload, which is concerning. Gore figures to be a low-end RB2 option in Week 8 against the Eagles.

From RotoBaller

Oct 18 4:03pm ET

Buffalo Bills RB Frank Gore (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and is not on the injury report for Week 7.

Fantasy Spin: Gore will receive a solid amount of carries this week against the Miami Dolphins and can be a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 18 3:03pm ET

Buffalo Bills LB Matt Milano (hamstring) and LB Corey Thompson (ankle) were limited in practice all week and are listed as questionable for Week 7 against the Miami Dolphins. CB Taron Johnson (hamstring) was a full participant in practice all week and is also listed as questionable. LB Lorenzo Alexander (rest), QB Josh Allen (hand), WR John Brown (groin), OT Cody Ford (concussion), WR Robert Foster (groin), TE Tyler Kroft (ankle), C Mitch Morse (ankle), DE Trent Murphy (concussion), OT Ty Nsekhe (rest), RB Devin Singletary (hamstring) and RB Frank Gore (rest) participated fully in practice Friday, Oct. 18, and no longer appear on the injury report.

From TheHuddle

Oct 17 4:13pm ET

Buffalo Bills RB Frank Gore (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 17.

Fantasy Spin: Gore has posted solid numbers this season and will continue to receive most of the carries in the running game. He will have a favorable matchup this week and could be a No. 2 running back or flex option in leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 17 1:03pm ET

Buffalo Bills RB Frank Gore was without a helmet at practice Thursday, Oct. 17, as he takes his customary weekly rest day.

Fantasy Spin: Gore has an attractive Week 7 matchup against the Miami Dolphins, but he's no more than a flex consideration with rookie RB Devin Singletary possibly returning from a hamstring injury absence this week.

From TheHuddle

Oct 17 12:50pm ET

Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore has received at least 16 touches in four straight games. This week, he faces a Dolphins Defense that just allowed Adrian Peterson and the Redskins to run all over it. Gore has a fantastic opportunity to rack up around 100 rushing yards with a good chance to score, making him a high-end RB2 this week. The team's No. 2 running back Devin Singletary (hamstring) is looking likely to make his return this week, which could cost Gore a few touches, but nothing significant enough to warrant benching Gore.

From RotoBaller

Oct 6 7:00pm ET

Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore shouldered the rushing workload for the Bills once again in Week 5, but the results were slightly underwhelming. Gore carried the ball 14 times and gained 60 yards in the game. He had managed double-digit fantasy points in standard-scoring leagues for three straight weeks before this week's game. It was Gore's fourth straight game with 14 or more carries. His backup, T.J. Yeldon, was the only other running back to receive a carry, earning only two. Rookie running back Devin Singletary (hamstring) will likely be ready to return to action after the team's Week 6 bye and should take some of Gore's workload away, so Gore could be dropped in leagues of 12 teams or less, especially PPR formats since he offers little value in the passing game.

From RotoBaller

Oct 6 4:33pm ET

Buffalo Bills RB Frank Gore rushed for 60 yards on 14 carries against the Tennessee Titans in Week 5. He also caught two passes for nine yards during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Gore has posted decent numbers over the last several games with at least 60 rushing yards in each of the last four games. Gore will be off next week but could be a No. 2 running back or flex option against the Miami Dolphins in Week 7.

From TheHuddle

Oct 3 3:43pm ET

Buffalo Bills RB Frank Gore (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Spin: Gore is coming off his first 100-yard game of the season and will continue to receive most of the carries in the running game. He can be considered a No. 2 running back or flex option in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 3 1:40pm ET

Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore passed his biggest test of the young season with flying colors in Week 4. Gore rushed for 109 yards on 17 carries against a Patriots Defense that entered Week 4 with the No. 1 rushing defense in the league. This week, Gore will take on the Titans, who have been amongst the middle of the pack in run defense so far this year. No. 2 running back Devin Singletary (hamstring) appears to be trending towards making his return this week, but he's still questionable at this point. Even if Singletary is active, Gore should still get between 15 and 20 touches, which gives him a good shot at around 80 yards with a chance to score his third touchdown of the season.

From RotoBaller

Sep 29 7:43pm ET

Buffalo Bills RB Frank Gore rushed 17 times for 109 yards in Week 4 against the New England Patriots and he did not have any catches on one target.

Fantasy Spin: The 100-yard game was his first since Oct. 14, 2018 against the Chicago Bears, an overtime win. This was his first 100-yard game in regulation since Dec. 10, 2017 at Buffalo, when he was a member of the Indianapolis Colts.

From TheHuddle

Sep 29 5:40pm ET

Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore continued his strong start to the season in Week 4 despite a matchup against a stingy Patriots run defense. Gore carried the ball 17 times in the game and totalled 109 yards, good for 6.4 yards per carry. No other running back received a carry in the game for the Bills. Gore had scored touchdowns in each of the previous two games, so this marks his third straight solid fantasy outing. His value might take a hit if Devin Singletary (hamstring) returns next week, but Gore could still be start-worthy regardless as he's been playing too good for the Bills to ignore at this point.

From RotoBaller

Sep 29 4:30pm ET

Bills' RB Frank Gore ran for 109 yards on 17 carries but no touchdowns in Sunday's loss against the Patriots.

Sep 27 8:50am ET

If you've started Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore the past two weeks, you've likely been happy with the results. This week, however, Gore will face his greatest test yet as the Bills face the Patriots. In a game that should be low scoring, Gore should have ample rushing opportunities, however, the fear is that he's going to struggle to do much of anything with his carries. The Patriots are currently allowing just 36.7 rushing yards per game and 2.3 yards per carry, leading the league in both categories. Gore has scored touchdowns the past two weeks but touchdowns will be much more difficult to find this week. Expect Gore to finish with around 50 yards on 20-or-so attempts and very little (if any) production through the air.

From RotoBaller

Sep 26 7:23pm ET

Buffalo Bills RB Frank Gore (non-injury) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 26.

Fantasy Spin: Gore is coming off a solid Week 3 performance and will continue to receive a majority of the carries this week. He will be facing a tough New England Patriots defense but can still be a flex option in standard leagues.

From TheHuddle

Sep 22 9:33pm ET

Buffalo Bills RB Frank Gore rushed 14 times for 76 yards and a touchdown and caught both of his targets for 13 yards in a 21-17 win over the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 3.

Fantasy Spin: Gore has topped 80 total yards and found the end zone in back-to-back games, and the veteran is showing he can still be a useful flex option as the lead back for the Bills.

From TheHuddle

Sep 22 6:20pm ET

Buffalo Bills running back Frank Gore saved his best production for last, plunging in for a late one-yard touchdown to put Buffalo up for good over the Cincinnati Bengals 21-17 on Sunday. With Devin Singletary declared inactive prior to the game, Gore rushed 14 times for 76 yards, outpacing T.J. Yeldon who rushed eight times for thirty yards - and who also had a costly second-half fumble. With the likely return of Singletary in Week 4 and facing a Patriots teams that will likely require a pass-heavy game script, Gore will be relegated to the fantasy doldrums.

From RotoBaller

Sep 22 11:13am ET

Buffalo Bills RB Frank Gore is expected to start Week 3's game against the Cincinnati Bengals and receive a significant number of carries.

Fantasy Spin: Gore will receive a heavier workload than normal this afternoon as a result of Devin Singletary (hamstring) being ruled out for the game. He had a decent performance in Week 2 and is worthy of consideration as a flex option in standard fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Sep 20 5:13pm ET

Buffalo Bills RB Frank Gore (non-injury) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 20, and is not on the injury report for Week 3.

Fantasy Spin: Gore has received most of the carries over the first two weeks and could receive a bigger role this week with Devin Singletary ruled out. He is coming off a solid Week 2 performance and can be at least a flex option in standard leagues.
