What if Frank Gore is lost for the season?

Dave Larkin breaks down the potential consequences of the Colts offense losing the 34-year-old running back for the season. 

You would have to be pretty stingy not to give ageless wonder Frank Gore a round of applause when his career comes to a close. Entering his 13th professional season, Gore is aiming to record his 10th 1,000-yard season and is still the Colts’ de facto best option in the backfield. However, Father Time waits for no man; not even the 34-year-old Gore, who has wowed us with his longevity, will last forever.

Our staff rankings have the veteran projected as the RB27, with the likes of relative spring chickens Ameer Abdullah and C.J. Anderson in his neighborhood. The Colts offense represents a fertile soil for fantasy production, but Gore may not be able to stay healthy.

Which begs the inevitable question: who stands to benefit if the wheels finally come careening off the Gore Express in 2017?


WR T.Y. Hilton

Andrew Luck’s shoulder issues notwithstanding, it stands to reason that the absence of Gore would precipitate an uptick in passing attempts. Target monster T.Y. Hilton would be the primary beneficiary. Widely considered as a safe top-10 option among wide receivers, Hilton is ranked as WR8 in the FBG consensus rankings. We have seen the speedster explode in the past for massive games; more would be on the cards without a viable rushing threat.
