Peterson averaged 5.31 yards per carry on those attempts - the fourth-best mark in the league by a running back.

New York Jets RB Frank Gore said Thursday, May 21, he's happy to play the veteran role and help support RB Le'Veon Bell and the other running backs on the Jets' roster. 'It will be fun, man,' he said. 'I've been around a bunch of talented running backs in my career, college and NFL. I'm going to do whatever it takes to help him and help the other guys.'
Huddle Up: The Jets also drafted RB Lamical Perine in the fourth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, so it's unlikely Gore will have much fantasy value at any point this season unless Bell were to miss time.

New York Jets RB Frank Gore said he did not consider retirement this offseason because he believed that he can play at least one more season.
Huddle Up: Gore should be the primary backup to Le'Veon Bell and will see a handful of carries each game. Fantasy players probably can avoid Gore in fantasy drafts or have him as a handcuff to Bell.

New York Jets RBs Le'Veon Bell and Frank Gore should have success this upcoming season, according to head coach Adam Gase. 'Those two guys can really do some damage together,' Gase said. 'We have two guys that can play all three downs. They both have outstanding skill sets. There's a little bit of difference in their running style and how they do things, but we know Frank really well and we know how to use them.'
Huddle Up: Bell is coming off a disappointing 2019 season but should receive most of the carries in the 2020 season. He can still be considered at least a No. 2 fantasy running back. Gore will receive a handful of carries each game but probably is a depth option for fantasy player.

New York Jets RBs Frank Gore (44 percent) and Le'Veon Bell (42.4) ranked 27th and 28th, respectively, out of 29 ball carriers in rushing success rate (RSR), according to NFL Next Gen Stats. RSR is defined as the percentage of run plays resulting in a successful play based on the yards to go by down: at least 40 percent on first down, at least 50 percent on second down and conversion on third and/or fourth down.
Huddle Up: Neither of these results should be all that surprising, as Gore was a 36-year-old back running in between the tackles for the Buffalo Bills for the bulk of 2019. Bell is significantly younger (turned 28 in February), but his offensive line was a far cry from what he had during his time with the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Jets made a number of additions up front this offseason, so it wouldn't be all that surprising if Bell is significantly more efficient with his 270 or so touches in 2020 than he was on 311 last year.

Free-agent RB Frank Gore (Bills) is signing a one-year deal with the New York Jets, his agent, Drew Rosenhaus, told ESPN Tuesday, May 5. Financial terms of the deal were undisclosed.
Huddle Up: Gore will play for his third AFC team in as many years. Jets head coach Adam Gase tipped his hand with comments about Le'Veon Bell seeing a lessened workload, and the ageless Gore just happens to be the guy to help. This is a little bit of a setback for rookie RB Lamical Perine, but Gore is entering his age-37 season and is coming off of the lowest yards-per-carry average (3.6) of his NFL career. Gore and Gase worked together in Miami during the 2018 season, a year in which Gore ran 156 times for 722 yards (4.6 YPC) but failed to rush for a touchdown. He's merely a handcuff to Bell in 2020 drafts.
