Reports say 2 teams reached out to the Colts interested in Gore.

 

Guessing its between the Chiefs, Seahawks, and Redskins.

I'd say so - more GL opportunities!

 

Depends where he goes and what role that team needs.

 

KC, not good since it's Hunt's role already.

 

SEA, not good since it's RBBC and weak O-line.

 

WAS, if they demote Kelley yes this would be positive for Gore.

MIA and DET have atrocious running games too....wouldn't be surprised about any of them.

Rawls and Lacy have been so underwhelming that I wouldn't be worried about that; the weak O-line is an issue, but they just upgraded at LT, plus the Indy O-line sucks too.

Well, that helps a bit.

 

SEA is a better team overall than IND, more scoring chances. If Gore went to SEA and got enough carries I think he moves way up the rankings. Just hard to trust the way SEA has been using RB's.

Agree that KC would not be good for fantasy, but KC could use him, Hunt appears to be wearing down a bit, and he is just a rookie who was getting a pretty heavy workload so his durability to handle that isn't necessarily known, so Gore would be a great change of pace or insurance policy.

 

Seattle would be his best spot, as I assume they'd immediately cut Rawls since he's shown zero all season, and Gore would be the primary early down back on a good offense with a suspect O-Line.

 

I feel like Washington should be a good spot, where he'd be the early down back, but I just don't trust any rotations out of Gruden.  But this one could be a sneaky value if Gruden committed to him.

He has been riding my bench most season for depth but I think this week seems like a plus matchup for good old Frank to get yardage and find the end zone. Obviously he doesn’t get much attention with his solid floor low ceiling play but he’s scored 6+ in 10 of 12 games in standard leagues against predominantly strong run defenses. With the Bills weak run D he could be a pretty good flex play.

We've got deep benches in my league, so I keep him around as a last ditch play in case of an emergency. Nice to have his solid floor available. I've got a first round bye this week, but will be playing him at flex to try to rack up high points as there is a payout for it.
