The Miami Dolphins have put running back Frank Gore on season-ending IR with a foot injury.
In theory, this should be good news for Kenyan Drake owners. In reality, the Dolphins already tipped their hand last week after Gore left, giving plenty of run to rookie Kalen Ballage. Bellage, a size/speed prospect, acquitted himself well, but is raw, inconsistent and was a disappointment in college. Neither Ballage or Drake are great options against Jacksonville this week.
MIA RB Frank Gore - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 15 at Minnesota Vikings
Miami may have pulled off a miracle last week, but heading on the road to Minnesota this week may require the second coming. The Dolphins have an implied team total of just 18.5 points and are touchdown underdogs. The Vikings also rank ninth in aFPA to RBs. Plus, here are Kenyan Drake's touches over the past three weeks: 13,9,7. Here are Frank Gore's touches over the past three weeks: 15, 9, 13. Considering Gore doesn't add much in the passing game and stiff match-up this week, he's likely too risky for lineups.
