Frank Gore a Week 3 disappointment?


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) Frank Gore has started off this season running well with 29 carries for 129 yards and a touchdown through two games against Dallas and Chicago.

He lost a touchdown to rookie Carlos Hyde in Week 1, but he doesn't look like he's slowing down yet.

This week, however, Gore is facing a tough task against the Cardinals. Arizona allowed Ryan Mathews to score in Week 1 and Rashad Jennings had 109 total yards in Week 2. But Gore was held to 13 carries for 14 yards at Arizona last year, and we expect him to struggle again this week.

It's hard to bench Gore in the majority of leagues, but don't be surprised if he's held to single digits in Fantasy points in this matchup.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.


Frank Gore averages 4.8 yards per carry


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore ran 13 times for 63 yards (4.8 ypc) against the Bears, including an 8-yard touchdown on a counter in which he lunged for the end zone. Gore probably should have gotten the ball more in a game San Fran led by 17 points.

Gore, who has 72 career touchdowns, caught both his targets for 12 yards. He'll visit the Cardinals in Week 3.


Frank Gore gets work, but can't find end zone Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) San Francisco running back Frank Gore got some action, but didn't get into the end zone Week 1 against the Cowboys.

Gore was a victim of circumstance in some ways. The 49ers were incredibly efficient in the passing game, putting 21 points on the board in the first quarter. While that would typically lead to more work from Gore, the team opted to limit his carries with a big lead.

On the team's only other scoring drive, rookie Carlos Hyde vultured a four-yard score from Gore. Hyde and Gore mostly split carries evenly the rest of the way. The Cowboys chewed up a lot of playing time in the second half, so the 49ers opportunities were fairly limited.

Gore finished with 16 carries for 63 yards. He did not catch any passes. Gore will take on the Bears Week 2.


Frank Gore ready to roll Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) San Francisco running back Frank Gore is ready to dominate Week 1 against the Cowboys.

Gore received minimal work in the preseason, with just three rushing attempts. That’s for the best, as the 31-year-old has put a lot of milage on his legs over his career. At this point in his career, it’s not like Gore needs the extra reps in order to get ready for the season.

If there is any rust, Gore should have no problem shaking it off against Dallas Week 1. The Cowboys boasted the worst Fantasy defense against running backs last season. Dallas allowed 23.88 Fantasy points against opposing rushers last season. The club made moves during the offseason to patch some hopes on the defense, but the team is still expected to struggle this season.

There’s a sense that Gore will eventually lose some playing time to rookie Carlos Hyde. While that may happen later in the year, when Gore has already built up some carries, it may not happen often Week 1. On top of that, the 49ers have been limiting Gore’s carries for a few seasons now, and he’s still managed to put up solid Fantasy numbers. Against the Cowboys, he’s a must-start.


49ers will closely monitor Frank Gore's workload again this season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/28/2014) 49ers running backs coach Tom Rathman told reporters that they have closely monitored Frank Gore's workload in the last three-to-four years, and they'll do so again this season, per the Bay Area News Group on Thursday.

"We need to manage him," Rathman said. "We need to keep him (fresh) from Week 1 to the Super Bowl. So that's going to be the biggest challenge. He’s ready to go and he’s right where he needs to be."

Second-round pick Carlos Hyde could be the perfect back to work behind Gore this season. Hyde has 88 yards and averaged 5.9 yards per carry through three preseason games.

In 2013, Gore rushed for 1,128 yards on 176 carries. He rushed for 618 yards on 146 carries (4.2 yards per carry) through his first eight games, 130 carries for 510 yards (3.9 yards per carry) in the second half of the season.

Frank Gore looks good in cameo


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/17/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore carried twice for 12 yards during the opening drive against the Broncos on Sunday, then was done for the day. Gore barreled up the gut for nine yards on his first carry, then converted 3rd-and-1 with a 3-yard gain behind fullback Bruce Miller.

Gore should play a bit more in the third preseason game against the Chargers.


Frank Gore doesn't want to give up his workload


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/24/2014) Recently there have been reports that 49ers running back Frank Gore would see his carries drop to around 200 to 220 over the course of the season. Gore's having none of that. 

"I'm still here, so why not?" Gore said when asked if he wanted to continue getting a big amount of offensive work according to Comcast Sportsnet. "I'm from Miami. I've been competing ever since I left high school. I've been with top guys who've been in the league. I'm up for it. One day, they’re going to get this role. But I'm here, and I'm going to make it a challenge. ...  I'm just going to try to be the Frank Gore I've always been."

The Niners drafted Carlos Hyde in the second round this offseason and still have Kendall Hunter and Marcus Lattimore on the roster to help Gore, 31, shoulder the load. 


Frank Gore's workload could drop to 200 carries


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/23/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore is still the guy the team will look to in the clutch, but his workload could drop to around 200 carries, reports ESPN.com. Gore, 31, carried 276 times last year and is entering his 10th season.

The website envisions Gore's workload falling thanks to the potential emergence of Carlos Hyde and Marcus Lattimore and San Francisco's new receiving weapons.


Frank Gore's carries expected to take a hit


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/6/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore has averaged 272 carries the past three seasons. But ESPN.com guesses Gore, now 31, will see about 220 carries this year.

The website expects rookie Carlos Hyde and second-year back Marcus Lattimore to eat into Gore's workload. Kendall Hunter remains in the picture as the current No. 2 on the depth cart.


Frank Gore hasn't been practicing


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/4/2014) Frank Gore was with the 49ers for their OTA workouts but did not actually participated in any drills. Gore stretched and spent time watching the second-string offense in team drills before leaving early, according to the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. It is believed that Gore has yet to practice with the team this offseason. 

No injury has been reported so the prevailing thought is that the team is simply saving him for training camp. But the paper goes on to suggest that the team needs to hold him back from shouldering a big workload so he has something left in the tank for the postseason, something that didn't happen last season. 


Anquan Boldin excited for 49ers offense


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/3/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin said he's excited for the offense this year with Michael Crabtree coming back at 100 percent. Crabtree missed the first 11 games last year with an Achilles injury.

Boldin said in an interview with CBSSports.com that Colin Kaepernick now has all of his weapons back with Crabtree, Boldin and Vernon Davis. Quinton Patton is expected to take on a bigger role, and the 49ers have an excellent backfield with Frank Gore and the potential of second-year running back Marcus Lattimore, who is coming back from a devastating knee injury at South Carolina in 2012.

"It's going to be big," Boldin said of Crabtree being back. "It's going to be major for us. Toward the end of the season you were able to see a glimpse of what it's like to have me and him on the field at the same time, and then you have Vernon working out of the tight end position. And we have the young guy in Quinton Patton coming along. We were expecting him to play well. With all four of us on the field and Frank coming out of the backfield and getting Lattimore healthy, it's going to be tough. It's going to be a potent offense, and we're looking to make a run this year."


Jim Harbaugh: Frank Gore has three good years left


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2014) 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said running back Frank Gore, who turns 31 in May, is not nearing the end of his career. “I really think Frank has three more good years,” Harbaugh said, per CSNBayArea.com. “I truly believe that. But we’re in a game of taking it one year at a time.”

Gore is entering the final year of his contract. He ran for 1,128 yards and nine touchdowns last year, the seventh time in nine NFL seasons he has gone over 1,000 yards.


Frank Gore to get paid, lose work


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore will likely maintain his salary for 2014, but he could be looking at a reduced role, reports the San Francisco Chronicle.

Gore, who turns 31 in May, is due to make $6.45 million in the last year of his contract. General manager Trent Baalke said the 49ers don't have to do anything with Gore as far as restructuring.

"The bottom line is we're going to take a look at everything and we're going to do what's best for the organization," Baalke said. "And that’s what we're going to do with all of our decisions."

The report says Kendall Hunter, Marcus Lattimore and LaMichael James "could and should" give Gore some breathers in 2014.


Frank Gore broke right ring finger


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2014) 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said running back Frank Gore broke his right ring finger in the NFC Championship Game at Seattle. Gore was not on the field for the final five plays.

Gore is scheduled to undergo surgery, according to multiple reports.


Report: Frank Gore to have 'minor finger surgery'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2014) The 49ers haven't specified what type of injury running back Frank Gore suffered during the NFC Championship Game loss at Seattle, when he carried 11 times for 14 yards. But CSNBayArea.com, citing a source, reports Gore will undergo "minor finger surgery."

The injury did not prevent Gore from making a 17-yard catch on 4th-and-2 to extend the 49ers' last drive. Gore is one of seven 49ers who cited injuries in declining Pro Bowl invitations.

by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2014) San Francisco running back Frank Gore suffered an apparent injury during the NFC Championship, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

Gore will not play in the Pro Bowl due to an unspecified injury. Gore and the 49ers would not comment on the injury.

Frank Gore gets stuffed by Seattle's front line


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

In his previous meeting at Seattle, Gore rushed for 16 yards on nine carries. He continued his struggles against a stingy defensive line, rushing for only 14 yards on 11 carries (1.3 yards per carry), finishing as the team's third-leading rusher. He also caught one pass for 17 yards on two targets in the loss.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

"He's a fantastic runner, he's got great sense, and he's got as good a sense in the line of scrimmage as anybody that's playing in the game," Seahawks coach Pete Carroll told the Associated Press. "If you make a mistake, he takes advantage of it."

Gore has run for 150 yards and a touchdown in two playoff games entering Sunday's NFC Championship in Seattle.
