Summary

While Gore continues to age in terms of actual years, his skills never seem to follow suit. Gore saw his yards decrease for the second year in a row in 2018, but his yards per carry went up from 3.7 to 4.6, his highest average since 2006. He also carried the ball 100 times less than he normally does, which may be part of the reason. How much of a load he can carry is the question, and how much do the Bills want him to? Not only is he contending with LeSean McCoy but the Bills added T.J. Yeldon and third round back Devin Singletary. And lest we forget, quarterback Josh Allen led the team in rushing yards. Gore's versatility will keep Gore in the mix, but there are too many mouths to feed barring injuries, so Gore should be viewed as no more than a spot starter or handcuff to McCoy. (May 29)

Latest News

Bills | LeSean McCoy, Frank Gore to see more time (Wed Aug 21, 02:28 PM) - Buffalo Bills RBs LeSean McCoy and Frank Gore will both see more playing time during the third preseason game Friday, Aug. 23.

Our View: Devin Singletary has dominated first-team snaps so far, but that was mainly to give the veterans rest time. This still looks like a three-man committee, although that could change if a team has an injury at running back and comes calling for McCoy.
