Summary

Every year people count Gore out and every year he finds a way people look foolish, but this looks like the year where his production really bottoms out. Not because he will physically fall apart though, but because we expect Kenyan Drake to do the heavy lifting -- which means Gore's opportunities will be fewer. When he gets the ball, it's hard to bet against a guy who topped 900 yards per year behind a shoddy Colts offensive line. His 3.7 yards per carry average is a concern, as is the decreasing amount of touchdowns, but that was really more a product of a bad offense than it was Gore. If Drake falters or gets hurt, Gore could be a solid RB2, but as it stands right now, he's a handcuff to Drake and nothing more. There just won't be enough carries for a guy who is insurance and a mentor more than anything. (May 31)

Dolphins | Frank Gore will have a role (Mon Jul 9, 11:05 AM) - Miami Dolphins RB Frank Gore wasn't brought in to strictly be a mentor for RB Kenyan Drake, and Gore will be mixed in the offense. Head coach Adam Gase said Gore turning 35 this season was irrelevant because he's a different player.

Our View: Gore continues to be a solid back and while everyone consistently expects him to be done, he puts up strong numbers. Drake is going to get a shot to win the job, but isn't a lock, while Gore isn't going to go quietly. Right now he's nothing more than a handcuff for Drake, as the only thing you can be sure of is he will lose carries to the younger back, but his upside is RB2 if Drake falters or gets hurt.
