Seemingly impervious to the ravages of time, the 35-year-old Gore has produced more than 1,000 yards from scrimmage for 12 consecutive seasons and hasnít missed a game since 2010. Dolphins head coach Adam Gase has expressed a preference for a multiple-RB approach and probably isnít going to let starter Kenyan Drake handle as many carries as he did late last season. Gore remains versatile even in the twilight of his career, useful as a pass catcher and still a good pass blocker.
Gore simply doesnít have the same burst he did during his heyday with the 49ers. Despite getting 290 touches last season, his total of four touchdowns was the lowest since his rookie year in 2005. Gore has averaged less than 4.0 yards per carry in each of the last three seasons, and he hasnít had a run of longer than 22 yards since 2015. Drake is clearly the lead back in Miami, leaving only a supporting role for Gore.
Goreís longevity is astounding, and itís possible heíll be fantasy-relevant at some point this season even at age 35, but at this point in his career heís a late-round fantasy pick or perhaps just a waiver-wire option.
