Frank Gore has missed a few games the last two years, and his overall production and yards per carry have taken a hit. Last time he was with Jets head coach Adam Gase, though, he had a 4.6 yards per carry average, and led the team in carries. There were also plenty of rumors last year that Gase preferred signing Gore over trading for Le'Veon Bell. That bodes ill for Bell's value, while not really enhancing Gore's value that much. It's hard to see him as more than a fourth string or bench back for fantasy teams, but worth watching him as Gase could start feeding him as he did in Florida. (May 6)

Jets | Bilal Powell finished with Gang Green? (Sat May 23, 10:57 PM) - Free-agent RB Bilal Powell's (Jets) chances of re-signing with the New York Jets likely ended when RB Frank Gore was signed, according to Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.

Our View: That's no surprise. Powell is a veteran back who can contribute as a runner or receiver out of the backfield. We'll see if he can latch on with a new team around training camp.

Redskins | Stacked fronts no issue for Adrian Peterson (Thu May 21, 11:27 PM) - Washington Redskins RB Adrian Peterson finished in a tie for fifth with Frank Gore among running backs with 61 rushing attempts against defenses with eight or more defenders in the box in 2019, according to ESPN's Matt Bowen. Peterson averaged 5.31 yards per carry on those attempts - the fourth-best mark in the league by a running back.

Our View: That's what Peterson does best. He is inevitable when it comes to crashing through the line of scrimmage. Peterson should be the same player in 2020, although Washington's backfield will continue to feature Derrius Guice and should also have rookie RB Antonio Gibson mixed in.

Jets | Frank Gore happy to help other RBs (Thu May 21, 07:40 PM) - New York Jets RB Frank Gore said Thursday, May 21, he's happy to play the veteran role and help support RB Le'Veon Bell and the other running backs on the Jets' roster. 'It will be fun, man,' he said. 'I've been around a bunch of talented running backs in my career, college and NFL. I'm going to do whatever it takes to help him and help the other guys.'

Our View: Gore is a seasoned veteran and future Hall of Fame running back. He's got a ton of knowledge he can share with backs like Bell or any of the other players on the roster. Gore will serve as a primary backup to Bell in 2020 and should get some short-yardage carries or touches when Bell needs a breather.

Jets | Frank Gore did not consider retirement (Thu May 21, 03:24 PM) - New York Jets RB Frank Gore said he did not consider retirement this offseason because he believed that he can play at least one more season.

Our View: Of course Gore did not consider retirement! It seems like he's going to play forever but we honestly know this could be the final year for the future Hall of Fame running back. He'll work in behind Le'Veon Bell with the Jets in 2020.

Jets | Frank Gore financials (Tue May 12, 10:39 PM) - Updating previous reports, New York Jets RB Frank Gore's one-year contract with the team is for $1.05 million and includes a $200,000 signing bonus.

Our View: Gore is there to grind down defenders. He'll work in tandem with starter Le'Veon Bell in 2020. There's not a ton of fantasy value there for Gore with his role.
