2015 Outlook
Depth Chart
On the surface, Gore put together a solid season in 2011, finishing the year with the second most rushing yards of his career (1,211) and finding the end zone eight times. However, it was a roller coaster ride as Gore struggled in his first three games with 148 rushing yards and one touchdown before putting together a great five game stretch when he topped 100 rushing yards in every game and totaled 634 yards and four touchdowns. After that, his usage and production declined over the 49ers final eight games as he averaged just 15.8 touches and accumulated 429 rushing yards and three touchdowns. First year head coach Jim Harbaugh clearly seemed to be curtailing Goreís workload in order to keep him fresh for the playoffs and with the addition of Brandon Jacobs in free agency and LaMichael James in the draft, that approach is likely to continue in 2012. That will mean fewer carries for Gore and since he was rarely used as a pass catcher last season (just 17 receptions after averaging 51 receptions over the previous five seasons), his days as a RB1 for fantasy purposes appear to be over. Look for Gore to struggle to reach 1,000 rushing yards in 2012 and finish the year as a low end RB2, provided he wins the short yardage role over Brandon Jacobs. If he loses that role, Gore will likely finish the year as a fantasy backup.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Andrew Luck limited in practice Friday     -- Fri Oct 2 12:05 pm --

Shoulder injury to Luck may give Hasselbeck the start
Via Mike Chappell of, Andrew Luck was not out with the other quarterbacks at the start of practice Friday. He was limited both Wednesday and Thursday with a shoulder injury. If he canít go, the Colts would start veteran Matt Hasselbeck, who hasnít started a game since Nov. 4, 2012. They signed journeyman Josh Johnson today since they were carrying only two on the active roster going into the week. (ProFootballTalk)

FF Today's Take: The signing of Johnson tells is the Colts are concerned about Luck's availability for Sunday against the Jaguars. He's officially listed as Questionable. If Luck doesn't play, it would be difficult for fantasy owners to trust Hasselbeck who hasn't played in a regular season game since 2012. The Colts passing game as would also be devalued but RB Frank Gore would get a slight boost.
Injury Colts waive injured RB Dan Herron     -- Sun Sep 6 3:10 pm --

Shoulder injury occured in 4th preseason game
The Colts have waived/injured running back Boom Herron, the team announced, a move that comes after he suffered a shoulder injury in Thursday night's preseason finale. Herron will be subject to the waiver wire, but if he clears, he'll be placed automatically on the Colts' injured reserve list. (Indianapolis Star)

FF Today's Take: Herron was playing the meaningless preseason game in large part because rookie Josh Robinson was out with a concussion. Herron was injured on a kickoff return. Robinson and Vick Ballard (hamstring) are the current backups to Frank Gore.
Frank Gore singing Andrew Luck's praises     -- Fri Aug 7 3:55 pm --

And takes shot at Colin Kaepernick at the same time?
That didn't take long. After less than a week of training camp, new Colts running back Frank Gore is already sold on Andrew Luck. The 32-year-old proclaimed after three short practices that Luck is the best quarterback he has ever played with. Gore believes that the 2015 Colts will likely end up being the best offense he has ever played with, and that's thanks in large part to Luck, the No. 1 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft. "I think if we keep working and keep going and get that gelled, I think by far it can [be the best offense]. Especially with No. 12, man," Gore said on Wednesday. "I'm not knocking my other quarterbacks. I respect them other guys, but being around this guy a couple months, he's a different breed. He's smart. He makes me feel young. He runs the huddle. I never had that." (CBS Sports)

FF Today's Take: It's hard to get excited about an aging Frank Gore, especially because the Colts like to pass so much. But Andrew Luck moves the ball down the field with greater regularity than Colin Kaepernick, and as a result Gore is slated for a lot of goal line work. While 1000 rushing yards might be a stretch, the veteran back has an outside shot at punching in 10 touchdowns in 2015, and could be a steal if still available in the fourth or fifth round of your draft.
