Gore carried the ball nine times for just 11 yards and caught his only target for 14 yards during Thursday's win in Dallas.
Gore once again took a back seat to impressive rookie Devin Singletary, who topped 100 scrimmage yards for the second straight week. Unless something happens to Singletary, Gore is now firmly supplanted in the role of mentor and occasional change-of-pace carrier.
Gore ran for 65 yards on 15 carries during Sunday's 20-3 win over Denver.
Gore did the bulk of his damage midway through the third quarter on a 27-yard sweep to the left, but a seven-yard run up the gut in the fourth quarter will get plenty more highlights. On that run, Gore passed Barry Sanders for third on the all-time rushing list. Despite the recent success of rookie Devin Singletary, Gore still leads the Bills in rushing on the season and flashed some of his old self in a run-heavy game plan Sunday. If the Bills show a more balanced attack Thursday in Dallas, Gore may not be your guy. He's now touched the ball fewer times than Singletary in four consecutive games, hasn't topped 70 total yards in a game since Week 4, and hasn't scored since Week 3.
Gore carried 11 times for 27 yards and caught one of two targets for 18 yards during Sunday's victory over the Dolphins.
Devin Singletary -- who has passed Gore on the depth chart -- saw 15 carries Sunday to Gore's 11. The latter hasn't averaged better than 3.8 yards per carry over the last four games, and hasn't seen the end zone since Week 3. With bye weeks just about over throughout the league, Gore doesn't hold much value even if he does serve as a decent senior leader and change-of-pace option for the Bills.
Gore carried five times for just 12 yards and caught his only target for four yards in Sunday's loss to the Browns.
The 36-year-old is still part of the weekly game plan, but he's not hitting the holes like he was earlier in the season and rookie Devin Singletary (eight carries for 42 yards and three catches Sunday) clearly has the bigger spark. Gore was fantasy useable earlier this season with Singletary sidelined with a hamstring injury, but that time seems to have passed and the former seems resigned to a change-of-pace role the rest of the way. Perhaps the Bills will use Gore around the goal line, but given his five rushing touchdowns combined over the last three seasons, we're not expecting all that much there either.
Gore managed only 15 yards on 11 carries and did not record a reception during Sunday's 24-9 win against the Redskins.
Prior to Week 9, Gore had garnered an average of 7.5 more carries per game than Devin Singletary in four contests in which both running backs were active. The script was completely flipped Sunday, however, as Singletary peeled off gains of seven, nine, 17 and 49 yards in the first half, and apparently convinced the coaching staff to stay with the hot hand -- fielding 14 touches to Gore's four during the second half. Upcoming in Week 10, Gore and Singletary will split carries against a Cleveland defense that entered its Sunday showdown against Denver allowing an astronomical 4.7 yards per rush to opposing running backs.
Gore rushed nine times for 34 yards and wasn't targeted in the passing game in Sunday's 31-13 loss to the Eagles.
Gore got nine rushing attempts to Devin Singletary's three, but Singletary scored a receiving touchdown and both players were out-rushed by quarterback Josh Allen, who carried the ball eight times for 45 yards. Allen's always a threat to vulture a short touchdown and Singletary is the more explosive Bills running back, so volume is the only thing keeping Gore relevant, and that goes out the window in games like this one when the Bills fall behind.
Gore rushed 11 times for 55 yards and secured his only target for 11 yards in the Bills' 31-21 win over the Dolphins on Sunday.
Facing the team he'd spent 2018 with, Gore had a rather modest performance overall. The veteran back didn't see as high of a workload as may have been projected pregame, as the Dolphins were a lot more competitive than anticipated, and rookie Devin Singletary also vultured seven carries overall. Gore does continue to demonstrate impressive efficiency, as he's now averaged 5.0 yards per carry or more in three of the last four contests. Gore will look to put together another productive effort in a Week 8 interconference matchup against the Eagles.
Gore's teammate Devin Singletary (hamstring) practiced fully all week and is expected to play Sunday against the Dolphins.
While it's true Singletary adds a dimension Gore lost years ago and the Bills will give the rookie his share of touches, Gore's rushing attempts have been managed at between 11 and 19 every single game without notable variance whether Singletary has been in the lineup or not. Singletary's future usage is certainly worth monitoring for Gore owners -- much more than reserve back T.J. Yeldon -- but for Week 7 the veteran Gore still seems like a pretty sturdy play. The Dolphins yield the second most rushing yards per game at 169.6 and have somehow allowed 180 points through just five games. Not to mention Gore probably wouldn't mind sticking it to his former team.
Gore ran for 60 yards on 14 carries and added nine yards on two catches during Sunday's 14-7 win over Tennessee.
Even without rookie Devin Singletary (hamstring), Gore put together his lowest yardage total since Week 1 against a fairly stout Titans defense. Coming into Sunday, Gore had at least 80 yards in three consecutive games. Look for him to make it four times in five games as Buffalo's Week 7 opponent, Miami, has surrendered a NFL-high 175.8 rushing yards per game.
Gore's teammate Devin Singletary has been ruled out of the Week 5 contest against the Titans due to a lingering hamstring injury.
The rookie has been practicing and tested the injury out pregame, but the Bills ultimately decided he wasn't ready. With a bye coming up Week 6, they'll play it safe and sit Singletary for one more week. That means Gore will have most of the carries to himself Sunday, with T.J. Yeldon picking up just a few to go with his passing-game role.
Gore's teammate Devin Singletary is listed as questionable with a hamstring injury for Sunday's game in Tennessee.
Singletary's status is a true game-time decision. The rookie has missed the last two games, but was close to playing last week and practiced on a limited basis each day this week. Gore saw his lowest number of rushing attempts (11) in the one game Singletary completed, while he averaged 16.7 carries per game over the last three contests. Gore's value is a good deal higher if his teammate is out of the lineup Sunday, as T.J. Yeldon doesn't pose much of a threat as a rusher and is more of a pass-catching option.
Gore rushed 17 times for 109 yards and failed to haul in his lone target in Sunday's 16-10 loss to New England.
Gore became the fourth player in NFL history to eclipse 15,000 career rushing yards, breaking off a few long runs to pace Buffalo's offense while the passing game struggled. He was stopped at the 1-yard line twice on the Bills' lone touchdown drive before watching quarterback Josh Allen take it in himself on fourth down. Allen later left the game with a concussion, muddying the waters even further for an offense that's already missing rookie running back Devin Singletary (hamstring). Gore should once again handle heavy volume in what projects to be a low-scoring affair against the Titans in Week 5, especially if SIngletary sits again. It's perhaps worth noting Gore is the oldest player in football to rush for 100-plus in a game since 1978.
With Devin Singletary (hamstring) inactive, Gore is once again in line to head the Bills' rushing attack Sunday against the Patriots.
T.J. Yeldon is on hand to work in a complementary role, but Gore will be the team's lead back Sunday. He'll have his work cut out for him in Week 4, however, with the Patriots defense having allowed an average of just 36.7 rushing yards per game three weeks into the season.
Gore is likely to serve as the Bills' lead option on the ground Sunday against the Patriots with Devin Singletary (hamstring) expected to sit out, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Singletary closed the week with limited practice sessions Thursday and Friday to garner a questionable designation heading into Sunday, but the Bills are apparently inclined to withhold the rookie from action for another game while he remains hobbled by the hamstring injury. Assuming Singletary is inactive for the contest, Gore and T.J. Yeldon would be the team's only available backs, with the latter likely to handle the majority of the work on passing downs. When Singletary sat out the Week 3 win over the Bengals, Gore out-snapped Yeldon by a 49-29 margin and out-touched him 16-10.
Gore rushed 14 times for 76 yards and a touchdown while catching both of his targets for 13 yards in Sunday's 21-17 win over the Bengals.
Gore got 16 touches to T.J. Yeldon's 10 while promising rookie running back Devin Singletary sat out due to a hamstring injury. The veteran running back's one-yard touchdown with 1:50 left in the fourth quarter turned a 17-14 deficit into a 21-17 lead that Buffalo wouldn't relinquish. Gore has enjoyed solid volume with the 3-0 Bills often playing from ahead thus far, but that could change when the 3-0 Patriots come to town in Week 4.
Gore is expected to start and receive "significant carries" with Devin Singletary (hamstring) ruled out for Sunday's game against the Bengals, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
Singletary's absence leaves Gore and T.J. Yeldon as the lone healthy running backs on the roster. Yeldon is expected to see most of his involvement on passing downs, leaving Gore to draw the bulk of the snaps on early downs and third- or fourth-and-short situations. The arrangement makes Gore a less appealing commodity in PPR formats, but the promise of a healthy workload on the ground -- should the game flow allow for it -- has the 36-year-old's overall fantasy stock on the rise. Through the Bills' first two games, Gore has rumbled for 88 yards and a touchdown on 30 carries.
Gore's teammate Devin Singletary (hamstring) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Cincinnati.
Gore joined the Bills amid a crowded backfield, but he's quickly won over the coaching staff as a strong locker room presence. Now LeSean McCoy is playing elsewhere and the biggest remaining threat to Gore's workload is injured. T.J. Yeldon will pick up some extra work this weekend -- namely in the passing game -- but if the favored Bills control this game early, Gore could be looking at a 20-plus-carry outing.
Gore's teammate Devin Singletary is not practicing for a second straight day Thursday.
Gore and T.J. Yeldon would be in store for higher workloads Sunday against the Bengals if the exciting rookie can't go, so Gore owners should clearly be following Singletary's status from here. The 36-year-old has posted a plodding-but-somewhat-valuable 30-83-1 line in the running game through two contest while adding two catches for 15 yards. It's not going to be pretty for Gore at this stage of his career, but the volume may be there for at least one more week, something that can be useful for owners dealing with injury-marred lineups.
Gore rushed 19 times for 68 yards and a touchdown while catching both of his targets for 15 yards in Sunday's 28-14 win over the Giants.
After watching quarterback Josh Allen and rookie Devin Singletary both score rushing touchdowns in the first half, Gore converted a one-yard rushing touchdown of his own in the fourth quarter. Singletary exited with a hamstring injury, which could slow his bid to cut into Gore's workload moving forward. The most appealing aspect of Gore's fantasy profile is his volume, as the 36-year-old running back is averaging a paltry 2.9 yards per carry through two games.
Coach Sean McDermott stated Wednesday that Gore remains the team's top running back on the depth chart, Chris Brown of the Bills' official site reports. "Frank Gore and then we bring in Devin [Singletary] and then we bring in TJ [Yeldon]," McDermott said, when asked about the team's starting running back.
Gore better get going if he wants to keep that spot, as he rushed 11 times for just 20 yards in the Week 1 win over the Jets, while the flashy rookie Singletary carried four times for 70 yards. The 36-year-old hasn't scored a rushing touchdown since Week 12 of the 2017 season despite relatively good health. Singletary is clearly the back to own in this offense, and it may only be a matter of time before McDermott changes his tune in his pressers. For now at least, there's modest value for Gore if he can somehow keep getting 10-to-15 carries in an offense that looks like it will move the ball better than last season. Even with the "starter" designation, Gore still only saw 28 percent of the offensive snaps in the season opener.
