San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (hip) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 14, and is probable for Week 11 against the New York Giants.
Fantasy Tip: Gore ($5,700) is an acceptable play for your FantasyScore lineups against the Giants this weekend. The Niners were back to their run-first ways last weekend and were successful, so expect them to stick to their guns against a mediocre defensive squad.
Thu, 13 Nov 2014 15:26:53 -0800
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (hip) practiced in full Thursday, Nov. 13, after being limited Wednesday, Nov. 12.
Fantasy Tip: The Niners were back on track with the running game last week, and Gore was the main beneficiary. That could easily continue in Week 11 against the New York Giants' mediocre defense. Gore costs $5,700 at FantasyScore.
Wed, 12 Nov 2014 18:50:52 -0800
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (hip) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 12.
Fantasy Tip: Gore has typically rested during mid-week practices to get ready, but he has not missed any game time. FantasyScore owners will like Gore's matchup this week, as he faces the NFL's worst-ranked rushing defense. The Giants allow 144.7 yards per game on the ground and an NFL-worst 13 rushing touchdowns.
Sat, 08 Nov 2014 15:21:44 -0800
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore has one touch inside the red zone in the last five games.
Fantasy Tip: Gore ($5,500; 11.0% of cap) has frustrated owners through several good matchups waiting for him to break out. He has another solid matchup against the New Orleans Saints this week, but we'd probably steer toward options with better upside on FantasyScore.
Fri, 07 Nov 2014 14:47:35 -0800
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (hip) practiced in full Friday, Nov. 7, and is probable for Week 10 against the New Orleans Saints.
Fantasy Tip: The Saints have been a good matchup for running backs this year, but Gore ($6,100) has struggled behind a poor offensive line this year, making him a weak FantasyScore lineup selection in a running back spot.
Thu, 06 Nov 2014 16:38:05 -0800
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (hip) was limited in practice Thursday, Nov. 6.
Fantasy Tip: To say that Gore has been struggling lately, partly thanks to an underachieving offensive line, would be an extreme understatement as he has totaled just 107 yards in his last three games. It might be best to stay away at a price of $5,500 on FantasyScore.
Wed, 05 Nov 2014 17:32:30 -0800
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (hip) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Nov. 5.
Fantasy Tip: Gore should be fine for Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints, but check back Friday for the official injury report. At $5,500 (or 11.0 percent of the salary cap), he could be a solid value as an RB2 or flex option in FantasyScore leagues.
Mon, 13 Oct 2014 18:35:33 -0700
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore managed just seven rushing yards on four carries in the first half of Week 6 against the St. Louis Rams.
Fri, 10 Oct 2014 16:55:16 -0700
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore has 77 carries through five games, his fewest since head coach Jim Harbaugh took over as head coach. Gore had 78 carries through five games last season, 79 carries through five games in 2012, and 94 in 2011.
Fantasy Tip: While he might be seeing slightly fewer carries, he is making the most of his playing time and he appears to be fresher as a result of the rest. He remains a potent option for FantasyScore owners at $6600 or 13.2 percent of the salary cap.
Wed, 08 Oct 2014 06:58:33 -0700
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore has started 49 consecutive games, which is the longest active streak for running backs.
Fantasy Tip: Good for him - a player that was dogged by knee injuries in college. Even better for him, he has a good matchup against the St. Louis Rams in Week 6. Gore ($6,600; 13.2% of your cap) is a good RB2 on FantasyScore this week.
Fri, 03 Oct 2014 16:45:16 -0700
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (back) was able to practice in full Friday, Oct. 3, and he is listed as probable for the Week 5 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Fantasy Tip: Gore is a good start in FantasyScore at $6500 (or 13 percent of the salary cap) against the 18th ranked rush defense in the NFL. Kansas City allows 116.0 yards per game on the ground, including three runs of 20 or more yards, although they have not given up a rushing score through four games.
Thu, 02 Oct 2014 16:37:27 -0700
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (back) participated fully in practice Thursday, Oct. 2.
Fantasy Tip: Gore faces a Kansas City Chiefs defense that has not allowed a rushing touchdown so far this year.
Wed, 01 Oct 2014 17:42:30 -0700
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (back) was able to take part in practice Wednesday, Oct. 1, as a full participant.
Fantasy Tip: Gore was a workhorse in Week 4, and he is a fantastic RB2 or flex fantasy play in most formats heading into Week 5.
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.
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.
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.
Thu, 25 Sep 2014 16:38:16 -0700
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (back) was a full participant in practice Thursday, Sept. 25.
Fantasy Tip: Gore has a favorable matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles, who have allowed four total touchdowns to running backs through three weeks.
Wed, 24 Sep 2014 17:35:08 -0700
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (back) was able to take part in a full practice session Wednesday, Sept. 24.
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.
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
San Francisco 49ers RB Marcus Lattimore, who is currently on the reserve/NFI list, could serve as the No. 3 running back during the second half of the season. The depth chart is currently RB Frank Gore, RB Carlos Hyde and RB Bruce Ellington.
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.
Wed, 20 Aug 2014 14:01:25 -0700
San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore said he is playing for a Super Bowl in 2014 and is not thinking about a contract extension. "This year I'm playing for a Super Bowl. I'm not even thinking about an extension," Gore said.
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.
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.
Sun, 20 Jul 2014 21:00:39 -0700
San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James could have trouble making the roster this year, according to ESPN.com's Bill Williamson. Williamson believes RB Frank Gore, RB Carlos Hyde, RB Marcus Lattimore, RB Kendall Hunter and FB Bruce Miller will make the roster.
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.
Tue, 03 Jun 2014 20:55:10 -0700

Wed, 16 Apr 2014 20:27:09 -0700
According to a league source, the San Francisco 49ers have been shopping RB LaMichael James. He finds himself behind RBs Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and perhaps Marcus Lattimore on the depth chart at running back this season.
Wed, 26 Mar 2014 10:46:18 -0700
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh believes RB Frank Gore has at least three good years left in him. "I really think Frank has three more good years," Harbaugh said. "I truly believe that. 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.
Fri, 21 Feb 2014 16:05:37 -0800
San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said the team does not have to ask RB Frank Gore to take a pay cut this offseason, because they are in good shape with their salary cap. Gore is scheduled to make $6.45 million in 2014.
Thu, 23 Jan 2014 20:02:54 -0800

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.
