Summary

Frank Gore is the perfect example of how the position of running back should be played. He is technically sound, has outstanding vision and his anticipation is among the best in the game. Father time has tried to catch up to him, but Gore just won't let go. He is entering his 13th season at age 34 and the Colts are still relying on him to be their lead running back. He'll be in pursuit of his tenth 1,000-yard rushing season and should surpass 3,000 career carries before the calendar hits October. Gore has a career 4.4 yards per carry average but the last two years he has dropped below the 4.0 YPC mark, which suggests even he, is starting to wear down. The Colts primary running back still has fantasy value, unless he sees a rapid decline or suffers a multi-week injury. Expect the Colts to lean on him until he can't consistently produce. The alternative options in the running game are limited. Marlon Mack is a young rookie running back who has a lot to learn before he is utilized more in the core offense. Veteran Robert Turbin is much more adept at playing the position, but his upside is limited. That leaves Gore to continue to be the Colts primary rushing threat. The potency of the Colts offense should be enough to sustain moderate fantasy production for Gore. There are several better fantasy options, but Gore's longevity, previous success and consistency make him someone to target as your third or even fourth option on your roster. (May 17)
