Summary

The Colts signed veteran running back Frank Gore in the offseason and all indications suggest he'll be the primary back in a potent Indianapolis offense. Gore will be 32 when he laces up his cleats for his 11th training camp as a pro and first with a different team other than the 49ers. The league has plenty of aging running backs whose skills diminish after age 30, but Gore bucks the trend. He has played in 148 of a possible 160 regular season games in his career and has totaled 1,000+ yards rushing in eight of the last nine years. The Colts are looking for him to be a veteran presence and be the base of a running game that Trent Richardson struggled to uphold. His strong work ethic and knowledge of the game and position gives the Colts an improvement at running back, compared to 2014 and years prior. Two hundred carries is within reach this year and some believe if the running game takes shape, that number could creep up to 250+ carries. Gore is a durable, safe fantasy running back selection with an RB2 outlook without a high round price tag. (May 22)

Colts | Frank Gore praises Andrew Luck (Thu Aug 27, 09:28 PM) - 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.'

Our View: It's good that they're getting along so well, since he's going to be a key piece in their charge for the Super Bowl. We see Gore as getting plenty of carries, and he should be a solid RB2 this coming season. Don't believe this is the year he collapses, he still has plenty in the tank and will be in a fantastic offense to keep defenses from stacking the box against him.
