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.

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.
