Summary

The 32 year old Frank Gore continues to chug along as one of the most consistent veteran running backs in the league. Gore remains atop the depth chart at running back after the Colts spent most of their draft picks on offensive linemen. Gore narrowly missed his fifth consecutive season of 1,000 yards rushing by a mere 33 yards in 2015. He has 200+ carries in 10 of the 11 years he has been in the league. The one year he failed to top 200 carries was his rookie season in 2005. Gore has played in every game for the last five years which shows how well-conditioned he is as an athlete. The Colts have little competition behind him on the depth chart so expect him to be a key contributor on offense, putting up decent fantasy numbers for a running back that you can stash on your roster as your RB3 or RB4.

Colts | Backup running back unclear in Indy (Tue Jul 19, 05:40 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore is the unquestioned starter for the Colts, but his backup remains to be seen. ESPN.com's Mike Wells did mention RB Josh Ferguson first for the position, however.

Our View: Ferguson is a nice sleeper rookie RB to consider. He was a good all-purpose back in college at Illinois, and our very own Cecil Lammey reported positive things about Ferguson during the week of practice for the East-West Shrine Game earlier this year. Ferguson is more quick than fast, and he doesn't waste time dancing in the backfield. He's electric with the ball in his hands, but he's not much of a bruiser. We like him as a receiver out of the backfield too. Keep his name in mind when considering backup Colts RBs. In 2015, 37.2 percent of Ferguson's carries went for five yards or more.

Colts | Fewer touches for Frank Gore? (Tue Jul 19, 05:32 PM) - The Indianapolis Colts want RB Frank Gore to have a lightened workload in 2016, according to ESPN.com's Mike Wells.

Our View: This is an important note for fantasy owners. We could see Gore's carries fall from the 260 he had in 2015 with the Colts. Instead, he may only get around 200 carries as the team tries to keep him fresh. We like the veteran RBs consistency and see him as a RB3 for fantasy owners in 2016.

Colts | Frank Gore still motivated (Sun Jul 17, 02:21 PM) - Indianapolis Colts RB Frank Gore uses critics to stay motivated at 33 years old. 'When I hear it, that's when I attack my training,' Gore said. 'When I'm tired, I tell myself what the people are saying about me.' Gore works out twice a day, adding football-specific field work to his usual workout involving speed, agility and strength training. Gore said working out more makes his mind stronger heading into training camp.

Our View: Gore is one of the most consistent RBs in the NFL, and things should be no different this year. In fact, things could be better with QB Andrew Luck healthy and back in action. Plus, the Colts have an improved offensive line which should help keep Luck upright and help blast open holes for Gore. We see him as a safe RB3 with a bit of upside in 2016.
