49ers list Week 13 injury report


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/26/2014) The 49ers released their Week 13 injury report Wednesday, and they listed tight end Derek Carrier (foot), tackle Anthony Davis (concussion) and defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey  (forearm) as out for Thursday's game against the Seahawks.

Cornerback Tramaine Brock (hamstring), wide receiver Bruce Ellington (ankle) and tight Vance McDonald (back) were all listed as questionable, while running back Frank Gore (knee), wide receiver Brandon Lloyd (quadricep), defensive end Ray McDonald (knee), running back Bruce Miller(shoulder), safety Eric Reid (ankle), defensive end Justin Smith (back) and safety Raymond Ventrone (groin) were all listed as probable.


Redskins hold 49ers' Frank Gore and Carlos Hyde in check


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) The 49ers struggled to get any of their running game going during a Week 12 win against Washington.

Running back Frank Gore struggled to produce, rushing for 36 yards on 13 attempts which also included a lost fumble.

Running back Carlos Hyde scored the lone rushing touchdown for the 49ers on a 4-yard run late in the fourth quarter. Sans the touchdown, Hyde was also unproductive with 16 rushing yards on seven carries to go along with the first lost fumble of his career.

The 49ers next play Thursday against Seattle.


49ers RB Frank Gore totals 114 yards in Week 11 win


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore rushed for a team-high 95 yards on 19 carries during a 16-10 win Week 11 at N.Y. Giants. He added two catches for 19 yards to finish with 114 total yards in the win.

Gore came close to his first 100-yard rushing performance in five games. He still has totaled more than 100 rushing yards just twice this season, with his last 100-yard game coming in Week 5.

The veteran running back did lose a fumble in Sunday's win on the opening drive, which led to a 19-yard touchdown catch by Giants tight end Larry Donnell. The 49ers are back in action Week 12 vs. Washington.


49ers' final Week 11 injury report: Gore, McDonald, Reid probable


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/14/2014) The 49ers have ruled Jimmie Ward (foot), Ian Williams (fibula) out for Week 11 against the Giants. Tramaine Brock (hamstring), Bruce Ellington (ankle) and Dan Skuta (ankle) were all deemed questionable.

The following players were labeled probable for Sunday: Chris Borland (shoulder), Frank Gore (hip), Ray McDonald (knee), Eric Reid (ankle) and Justin Smith (rest).


Frank Gore helps lead the 49ers to Week 10 victory over Saints


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore ran for 81 yards and one touchdown during the 49ers’ Week 10 win over the Saints.

Gore received the majority of the rushing attempts for the 49ers. He had 23 rushing attempts to go along with one reception for 2 yards on one target.

This was Gore’s best performance since running for 107 yards in Week 5 against Kansas City.

He was listed as probable with a hip injury for the Week 10 matchup.

The 49ers travel to New York to take on the Giants in Week 11.


49ers RB Frank Gore one of two probables for Week 10


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore (hip) and nose tackle Ian Williams (shin) were the only players labeled probable for Sunday's clash against the Saints in Week 10.

Tramaine Brock (toe), Brandon Lloyd (hamstring) and Quinton Dial (eye) were all limited participants in Friday's practice and ruled questionable. Dan Skuta (ankle) and Patrick Willis (toe) were unable to practice, but were still deemed questionable for Sunday.


Frank Gore's struggles could continue


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore has just 9 Fantasy points over his last three games, and has a somewhat tough matchup on the way for Week 10 as he tries to stop his skid against the Saints this Sunday.

Gore has 107 yards on just 2.7 yards per carry against the Saints, who have done a good job of slowing down opposing running games recently. The Saints are allowing just 2.4 yards per carry to running backs over the last four games, with a single-game high in that stretch of 68 yards on 17 carries.

The Saints have been vulnerable to pass-catching backs, as Eddie Lacy's 123-yard showing on eight receptions two weeks ago shows. However, Gore has been a non-factor as a receiver, with just one game of more than one reception under his belt this season.

If Gore can't get going in the running game, this could be another long day for his Fantasy owners. He still gets enough work that it is hard to sit him, but Gore is hardly inspiring much confidence. Consider him more of a low-end starting Fantasy option for Week 10. 


49ers RB Frank Gore held to 49 rushing yards in Week 9 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore managed just 49 yards on 14 carries in his team's 13-10 loss to the Rams in Week 9, adding one reception for nine yards while failing to reach the end zone.

Gore has been bottled up on the ground in recent weeks, failing to top 2.5 yards per carry in either of his previous two games before posting a 3.5 yards-per-carry mark in Week 9. Sunday's reception was also his first during the three-game stretch, with two of those games coming against the Rams. He'll attempt to deliver his first big performance in more than a month when he faces the Saints in New Orleans in Week 10.


Frank Gore, Carlos Hyde held in check in 49ers' Week 7 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore rushed for just 20 yards on nine carries and failed to haul in his only target in his team's 42-17 loss to the Broncos in Week 7.

The 49ers fell behind quickly as the Broncos jumped out to a 14-0 first-quarter lead, and that left San Francisco's running back out to dry during a failed comeback effort. Backup Carlos Hyde rushed for 15 yards on his three carries while adding eight yards on two receptions. The pair will head into the Week 8 bye on a down note, but the running game will look to get back on track in Week 9 against the Rams.


Colin Kaepernick becoming more trustworthy


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) With his team trailing for the entire first half, Colin Kaepernick let it fly Week 6 at St. Louis and put up numbers on par with some of the elite passers in the game as a result. He threw for 300 yards for just the third time in his career and had three touchdown passes for just the fourth time.

It gave you a sense of what his upside could be if the 49ers opened up their offense a little more, but with such a strong defense, they rarely have reason to do that.

Still, with Frank Gore aging, Kaepernick himself has been more of a weapon for them this year, throwing for at least 200 yards every week. While this was his first game with more than 20 Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com leagues (in part because it was just his third game with multiple touchdowns), he has at least scored double-digit Fantasy points every week, making him the seventh-best player at the position to date. His rushing ability keeps him consistent.

My assessment of Kaepernick hasn't really changed with this performance. He's a quarterback you can feel comfortable starting every week, but efforts like this one where he sets your team apart will be few and far between.


Frank Gore pulled for Carlos Hyde in critical situations


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2014) 49ers veteran running back Frank Gore was replaced by rookie Carlos Hyde at several critical moments in Monday's win over the Rams. Midway through the fourth quarter, Hyde failed on three consecutive carries inside the St. Louis 2 while Gore watched.

Then, with the 49ers needing a first down to run out the clock, it was Hyde not Gore getting the carries.

Gore finished with 38 yards on 16 carries (2.4 ypc). The lowlight came when he failed to convert 4th-and-1 with 4:19 left in the game. Gore nearly had a 27-yard catch, but officials ruled he came down out of bounds. Hyde ran 11 times for 14 yards (1.3 ypc) and caught his only target for 1 yard.

The 49ers visit the Broncos in Week 7.


Frank Gore reps scaled back by 49ers as part of plan


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/11/2014) The comparative lack of rushing attempts for 49ers featured back Frank Gore this season might have raised a few eyebrows, but it was part of the team's master plan, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

"We don't want to just ride that stallion all day, every day," he told CBSBayArea.com. "There's a point of diminishing returns at some point. That's almost true for any player at that position. Who gets hit more than running backs?"

Gore has been his typical productive self with 365 yards on 77 carries, but that marks the second-fewest attempts through five games in his career. The only exception was 2009, but he was dealing with an ankle injury early that season.

One difference is the presence of promising rookie running back Carlos Hyde, who enjoyed his finest effort in Week 5 with 43 yards on 10 carries.


Frank Gore goes over 100 yards for second straight game


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore hammered his way to a second straight 100-yard rushing game, piling up 107 yards on 18 carries in the win over the Chiefs. These were Gore's first back-to-back 100-yard efforts since he strung five together in 2011.

Gore, 31, is the oldest 49er to rush for 100 yards in two straight games since 1960. Gore added a 1-yard reception.

Gore, who's averaging 4.7 yards per carry, visits the Rams in Week 6 on Monday Night Football.


Michael Crabtree, Frank Gore among cleared 49ers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) A slew of 49ers who were on the injury report are active for Week 5 against the Chiefs.

Wideout Michael Crabtree (foot) and running back Frank Gore (back) head the list and are joined by safety Antoine Bethea (ankle), tight end Vance McDonald (knee), safety Eric Reid (hamstring), defensive tackle Tony Jerod-Eddie (shoulder), nose tackle Ian Williams (ankle) and punter Andy Lee (ankle).


49ers release final Week 5 injury report


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) The 49ers listed center Marcus Martin (knee) as doubtful on the team's final injury report for Sunday's Week 5 game against the Chiefs.

Six 49ers were listed as questionable to play, including cornerback Tramaine Brock (toe), offensive tackle Anthony Davis (knee, ankle), tight ends Vernon Davis (back) and Vance McDonald (knee), safety Eric Reid (hamstring) and nose tackle Ian Williams (ankle).

Six additional players were listed as probable, including safety Antoine Bethea (ankle), wide receiver Michael Crabtree (foot), running back Frank Gore (back), punter Andy Lee (right ankle) and defensive ends Tony Jerod-Eddie (shoulder) and Justin Smith (not injury related).


Frank Gore shows why you don't sell him short


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) 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


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) 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.

Frank Gore active as expected


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) 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
(9/26/2014) 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
(9/25/2014) 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. 


Frank Gore listed on injury report


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) San Francisco running back Frank Gore was listed on the injury report Wednesday.

Gore was listed with a back injury, but was able to get through full practice. The injury could be the reason Gore received a limited workload during Week 3. 


Betting on Frank Gore's workload returning


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/24/2014) Frank Gore was not pleased with how the 49ers utilized him in Week 3, as he had just six carries in a loss to the Cardinals. Offensive coordinator Greg Roman seemed to indicate Tuesday he plans to get Gore more involved this Sunday, a good sign as the Eagles come up on the schedule in Week 4.

The Eagles did a good job holding the Jaguars running game at bay in Week 1 but, well, that was the Jaguars. They have enjoyed much less success in two games since, allowing a combined 52 Fantasy points to the running backs for the Colts and Redskins in Weeks 2 and 3.

The Eagles are holding opposing backs to just 3.4 yards per carry, but have been thrashed through the air. Gore is not much of a pass-catcher, but the Eagles' struggles there could provide some hidden value. Just a hunch, but I'd bet on Gore getting his usual 15 touches after failing to do so last week, so consider him a solid second running back for Week 4 against an Eagles defense that has allowed four running back touchdowns.


Coordinator explains Frank Gore's limited work Week 3


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/23/2014) 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman said Tuesday the reason for running back Frank Gore's limited touches Week 3 at Arizona was because the team planned to use its depth at wide receiver early to help set up the ground game in the second half, per the team's official website.

"I think Frank knew going into the game, we kind of outlined our game plan that we were going to start the game out a certain way and see how it went," Roman said Tuesday on KNBR. "In a perfect world, you're letting Frank and the offensive line take over the game at the end of the game, but we weren't in that situation, so we were never really able to transition into that."

Despite Gore's limited work Sunday, Roman said the team is committed to Gore and the running game.

"Frank is the ultimate pro, and he's the ultimate team guy," Roman said. "He wants to win, and he wants to play in the big games in January and February. So I think he totally understood what we were doing."


Frank Gore gets only six carries Week 3


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) 49ers running back Frank Gore didn't get many chances to make plays during a 23-14 loss Week 3 at Arizona. He finished with just six carries for 10 yards and had no receptions.

The six carries are the fewest amount Gore had since totaling nine in Week 2 last season, when he had nine carries for 16 yards in a 29-3 loss at Seattle. 

The 49ers are back in action Week 4 vs. Philadelphia.


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.
