49ers' Frank Gore pulls out a huge game Week 17
|by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com|
|(12/28/14) San Francisco running back Frank Gore turned in a huge game Week 17 against the Cardinals.
Gore rushed for 144 yards on 25 carries. He averaged 5.8 yards per attempt. Gore was constantly moving the chains forward, with only two of his carries going for negative yards. He was also able to show some speed, breaking off two runs that went for at least 20 yards. He wasn't much of a threat in the passing game, picking up two receptions for 5 yards.
With the performance, Gore went over 1,000 yards rushing for the eighth time in his career. He also became the 20th player to reach 11,000 rushing yards over his career. Gore finished with 1,106 rushing yards and four touchdowns.
49ers RB Carlos Hyde still sidelined
|by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com|
|(12/24/14) 49ers rookie running back Carlos Hyde missed practice again Wednesday with an ankle injury. He sat out Week 16 and appears likely to miss Sunday's game against Arizona, too.
With Hyde out, veteran Frank Gore went off for 158 yards and a touchdown on 26 carries against San Diego. Gore should see another big workload against the Cardinals.
Frank Gore takes advantage of matchup
|by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer|
|(12/21/14) Going against a defense that was strong against the pass but weak against the run, the 49ers clearly made running back Frank Gore a bigger part of their game plan Week 16 against San Diego, giving him eight carries on the team's first three drives. He finished with 26 for 158 yards, both season highs.
Of course, the increased workload may have had something to do with the absence of backup Carlos Hyde, who had been cutting into Gore's carries in recent weeks, with moderate effectiveness. Hyde is sidelined for an unspecified amount of time with an ankle injury.
Gore's performance may have earned him a bigger workload Week 17 against Arizona regardless. The Cardinals defense is kind of the opposite of the Chargers, though. It's much more effective against the run than the pass.
If nothing else, you at least have some hope for Gore making a relevant contribution in Week 17, but because the matchup isn't as favorable, he's still probably a sit in typical 12-team leagues.
49ers RB Frank Gore rumbles for 158 yards vs. Chargers
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/21/14) 49ers running back Frank Gore racked up 26 carries for 158 rushing yards with one touchdown in his team's 38-35 overtime loss to the Chargers in Week 16.
Both numbers represent season highs for Gore, who hasn't had a better rushing day since the 2009 season. He set the tone early, shaking off would-be tacklers en route to a 52-yard score less than two minutes into the game. Gore continually proved difficult to tackle, as he would have managed his third 100-yard game of the season even without the long touchdown.
Gore is now up to 962 rushing yards and four rushing scores on 230 carries. He has a reasonable shot at cracking the 1,000-yard mark in his team's Week 17 matchup with the Cardinals.
49ers' Frank Gore, Michael Crabtree active vs. Chargers
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(12/20/14) 49ers running back Frank Gore (concussion) and wide receiver Michael Crabtree (knee) are active for Saturday's Week 16 matchup with the Chargers.
Both players were listed as questionable on the team's final injury report, though it was reported early Saturday that Gore would in fact suit up for the game. Crabtree has yet to miss a game this season.
Offensive tackle Anthony Davis (concussion) is also active after being listed as questionable. The team had several players listed as probable and all are active Saturday, including cornerbacks Perrish Cox (ankle) and Chris Culliver (knee), safety Bubba Ventrone (groin), linebacker Michael Wilhoite (hip), tackle Jonathan Martin (illness), center Marcus Martin (knee), tight end Kyle Nelson (back) and defensive linemen Justin Smith (back), Quinton Dial (knee) and Tony Jerod-Eddie (foot).
|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.
