2015 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Nov-21-2015 by Shawn Childs
UPDATE (11/21): Gore has been a decent RB2 this season, which is what most expected of him. He has been the workhorse back in Indy, however, a miserable offensive line has hurt him a bit. He's yet to rush for 100 yards in any game this season and only has four touchdowns. With that said, Gore has been on a snap count all season. Now that the head coach and general manager both have their jobs on the line, they will no longer manage his touches and will run him as much as they need to win. It could increase his Fantasy value.
Gore will be an interesting player in the Colts offense in 2015. Many fantasy owners have had him dead and buried a couple of years ago, but he keeps producing 1,000-yard seasons. Frank has four straight 1,000-yard seasons and eight in his last nine years. Gore hasn't missed a game since 2010. Even with solid value in the run game, Frank has been phased out in the passing game over the last four years after catching 255 passes from 2006 to 2010. He'll start the year at age 32. Indy will get him more involved in the passing game. Gore had the eighth-most RB snaps in 2014 (fifth in 2013, fifth in 2012, and seventh in 2011). He will be drafted as RB2 or lower this year with sneaky upside. I think he will catch more than 30-plus balls with 250-plus carries, which gives a 1,300 yard opportunity with some value at the goal line.

|8.04||#5 World Ranked - Gore in the 8th round seems like a good value but I hated this pick as soon as I made it. Gore may have one solid season left as a bye week/flex player, but I should have gone with a different RB here.|
