|Frank Gore shows why you don't sell him short |
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(9/28/14) I got a tweet from someone earlier this week asking if he should drop Frank Gore for Doug Martin. I told him to add Martin. That was the easy part. But for Gore? I just couldn't get behind that.
Yeah, he's old and not all that exciting, but his age didn't show up in his numbers last year. And even though he didn't have big numbers through the first three weeks, he didn't cede carries to anyone else and still averaged a respectable 4.0 yards per carry.
As the primary ball carrier on a team with a still-developing passing game, Gore was bound to have a game like he had Week 4 against Philadelphia, rushing for 119 yards and scoring on an incredible across-the-field throw from quarterback Colin Kaepernick in the second quarter. And while these types of performances shouldn't be the expectation for him, he's bound to have more in his future.
If nothing else, you'll be glad you own him for this stretch of the season when every team has a bye. He certainly isn't a bad choice for Week 5 vs. Kansas City.
|Frank Gore finds Fountain of Youth, piles up 174 yards |

(9/28/14) After getting just six carries and gaining 10 yards Week 3, 49ers running back Frank Gore busted out in Sunday’s win over the Eagles. The 31-year-old's first carry went for 15 yards, and he had 59 yards on 10 carries by halftime.
Gore finished with 119 yards on 24 totes, both easily season bests. His 28-yard jaunt in the third quarter represented another season high. It was Gore’s first 100-yard rushing game since Dec. 8 of last year against Seattle.
Early in the second quarter, Gore got wide open in the right flat and Colin Kaepernick hit him from all the way across the field. Gore did the rest, shoving safety Earl Wolff out of the way for a career-long 55-yard touchdown catch. It was his only catch on two targets.
Gore takes on the Chiefs in Week 5.

(9/28/14) 49ers running back Frank Gore, who was probable with a back injury, is active as expected for the home game against the Eagles.
|49ers list lengthy injury report for Week 4 |
|by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com|
(9/26/14) The 49ers have listed 10 players on the final injury report leading up to Week 4 at home against Philadelphia. Center Marcus Martin (knee) is the only player from that list that has been officially ruled out for the game.
Deemed questionable were safety Antoine Bethea (ankle), cornerback Tramaine Brock (toe), tackle Anthony Davis (hamstring), tight end Vernon Davis (ankle, knee) and tight end Vance McDonald (knee).
Wide receiver Michael Crabtree (quaricep), running back Frank Gore (back), defensive end Justin Smith (not injury related) and linebacker Patrick Willis (wrist) were all labeled probable for Sunday.
|Frank Gore practices in full again |
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
(9/25/14) San Francisco running back Frank Gore was able to practice in full Thursday.
Gore popped up on the injury report Wednesday with a back issue, but has practiced in full both days. He should be able to play Week 4.
|At some point Frank Gore is going to slow down, but we keep waiting for that time to come. In the meantime, he continues to defy Father Time. Gore will be 31 this season, but he's coming off another year with at least 1,200 total yards and eight touchdowns, which he's done the past three years and six times in nine seasons. The 49ers, and Gore, know his career is coming to an end, and this could be the season someone else takes on a bigger role in the San Francisco backfield, especially with the addition of rookie Carlos Hyde and Marcus Lattimore (knee) expected to be healthy. We know the 49ers are going to continue to manage Gore's workload -- he only had six games with 20-plus carries in 2013 -- but he still gets the job done with double digits in Fantasy points in 10 games. We're nervous about Gore this season, and he's at best a low-end No. 2 running back or more likely a flex option in the majority of leagues. He should be drafted in Round 4 at the earliest but most likely Round 5, with Hyde as the likely handcuff. Hopefully Gore has one more season of quality production left.
