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.

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?

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.
