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.

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.


Frank Gore suffered injury during NFC Championship


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. Head coach Jim Harbaugh is expected to address the media Tuesday, and could talk more about Gore's issue at that time. It's been speculated Gore played through some of the game with a broken hand. He carried the ball 11 times for 14 yards in the loss.
