49ers | Frank Gore set to shoulder load?

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 17:36:27 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore had a season-high 24 carries in Week 4, and WR Anquan Boldin said that making sure Gore saw plenty of touches was the game plan from the start. "That was our mindset, just getting him back on the ball and getting him touches, making sure we controlled the line of scrimmage," Boldin said.

Fantasy Tip: After the success the 49ers had in Week 4 with Gore as the focal point of the offense, there is a good Gore will continue to see plenty of carries in the coming weeks. Don't forget about the veteran back at FantasyScore in Week 5 with San Francisco set to face a Kansas City defense ranked 24th against the run after three games.

49ers | Frank Gore used heavily

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 09:38:22 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore ran for 119 yards in the win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4 Sunday, Sept. 28, and he also had a career-long 55-yard touchdown catch in the game. Gore had 24 carries in the game for an average of five yards per carry.

Fantasy Tip: After barely being involved in the team's Week 3 loss, the Niners got back to their success on the ground against the Eagles. When Gore sees enough touches, he's at least a flex play for your fantasy lineups. This week against the Kansas City Chiefs, he could be primed for another productive day.

49ers | Frank Gore ready to play

Fri, 26 Sep 2014 15:16:55 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (back) practiced in full Friday, Sept. 26, and is probable for Week 4 against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Gore had just six carries for 10 yards in Week 3, and he didn't even catch a pass. Sunday against the Eagles should present the Niners with a great opportunity to get the ground game going again. However, Carlos Hyde will continue to eat into Gore's workload. Gore is probably a flex option, at best.

49ers | Frank Gore not happy with offense

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 10:43:42 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore wasn't pleased with the offensive game plan in which they unleashed five-receiver sets against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 3 because of a lack of healthy tight ends. The receiver-heavy look didn't feature a running back, and the Niners went with a no-huddle offense. QB Colin Kaepernick's 78.4 completion percentage (29-for-37) was his best as a starter. Gore had just one carry in the second half and finished with six rushes for just 10 yards. RB Carlos Hyde had three carries for 13 yards.

Fantasy Tip: This approach won't always be the game plan. Expect a more balanced focus on offense with Vernon Davis (ankle) returns to the starting lineup. However, Gore's involvement should be monitored. If he continues to lose touches, he probably won't be much more than a flex play.

49ers | Frank Gore's role dwindling

Mon, 22 Sep 2014 08:28:13 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore had just 10 yards on six carries Sunday, Sept. 21. He received 16 carries in Week 1 and 13 carries in Week 2.

Fantasy Tip: Gore's role was expected to be reduced this season, but the team has gone with a pass-happy approach. Colin Kaepernick completed a career-high 78.4 percent of his passes in Week 3, and the offense doesn't appear to be changing in favor of Gore anytime soon. Gore is little more than an RB3 or flex option right now.

Sat, 13 Sep 2014 23:19:58 -0700

49ers | Frank Gore makes history

Mon, 08 Sep 2014 10:18:39 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore totaled 63 rushing yards in the team's Week 1 win over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Sept. 7, making him the 29th player in NFL history with 10,000 yards for his career. Gore is also the 10th player with 10,000 yards and 10 seasons all with the same team.

Fantasy Tip: Gore carried the ball 16 times and had a long rush of 20 yards against the Cowboys. As he nears the end of his career, Gore will be rested much more often. He also isn't nearly as valuable in PPR leagues as he once was.

49ers | Frank Gore sitting?

Thu, 07 Aug 2014 15:44:04 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (undisclosed) was seen without socks or thigh pads in team warmups Thursday, Aug. 7. This is a good sign that Gore probably won't play tonight, as expected.

Fantasy Tip: The 49ers are playing it safe with Gore to start off the preseason. This may be a trend with Gore leading up to the regular season.

49ers | Frank Gore unlikely to play in preseason

Mon, 28 Jul 2014 09:47:09 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore is unlikely to play in the preseason this year. RBs Carlos Hyde and Jewel Hampton have both looked good so far during training camp. The injuries to RBs Kendall Hunter (knee) and LaMichael James (elbow) have left the team thin at the running back position. RB Marcus Lattimore isn't practicing yet due to physical limitations and not the mental side of his recovery from a significant knee injury in college.

Fantasy Tip: The Niners have even more reason to try to keep Gore healthy heading into the regular season now. With Hunter out for the year, Hyde's price will rise drastically, likely making him somewhat overvalued as a handcuff to Gore.

49ers | Frank Gore's carries to decrease a bit

Tue, 08 Jul 2014 21:04:50 -0700

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore should see around 220 carries this season, according to ESPN.com's Bill Williamson. Gore carried the ball 276 times last year.

Fantasy Tip: Young backs Carlos Hyde and Marcus Lattimore will begin to cut into Gore's workload this season, but the bulk of the carries will go Gore's way if he is healthy. Consider him a low-end RB2.

Wed, 26 Mar 2014 10:46:18 -0700

But we're in a game of taking it one year at a time." Gore will make $6.45 million in the final year of his current contract after rushing for 1,128 yards and nine touchdowns last year.

49ers | Frank Gore to miss Pro Bowl, may have broken hand

Mon, 20 Jan 2014 23:17:53 -0800

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (hand) won't be playing in Sunday's Pro Bowl because of a hand injury, and although the 49ers haven't specified its nature, word surfaced Monday, Jan. 20, that he may have broken a hand in the NFC Championship game loss at Seattle. Gore held an autograph signing in Burlingame at Lefty's Sports Shop, which posted news on its social-media forums that Gore played through his hand injury and it may require surgery Tuesday, Jan. 21. Neither the 49ers nor Gore's agent could be immediately reached for confirmation. Coach Jim Harbaugh will address the media Tuesday in his season-closing press conference. Harbaugh said after Sunday's game that he didn't know why Gore's production was so low.

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (ankle) left the Week 14 game against the Seattle Seahawks late in the fourth quarter, apparently aggravating his ankle injury.

49ers | Frank Gore probable for Week 14

Fri, 06 Dec 2013 16:45:55 -0800

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (ankle) practiced fully Friday, Dec. 6, and he is listed as probable for the Week 14 game against the Seattle Seahawks.

Fantasy Tip: Gore managed just 16 yards on nine carries last time out against Seattle, and he has 15 carries for 44 yards in his past two games against the NFC West Division rivals. Over his past seven outings against Seattle, he has managed just one 100-yard game and one rushing touchdown. In other words, it's a difficult matchup for Gore, so treat him more like a low-end RB2 or flex fantasy option this weekend.
