Frank Gore RB SF 6 Days1 Comment

Gore had nine carries for 20 yards in Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Broncos.

A dominant Denver offense scored touchdowns on six of its first eight drives, forcing the 49ers to rely on their passing game by the second quarter. It didn't help that Gore couldn't find much room on the few carries he got, which reinforced the (accurate) notion that the Broncos are a difficult team to run the ball against. Carlos Hyde also had a quiet game, as all five of his touches came late in the second half. Gore's lack of involvement in the passing game makes him vulnerable to ugly duds like this one, but he should fare better against a shaky St. Louis defense next week.

Gore had 16 carries for 38 yards in Monday's 31-17 win over the Rams.

Gore simply couldn't get anything going on the ground, and he only saw one target in the passing game. He notably came up short on a 4th-and-1 in the fourth quarter, but backup Carlos Hyde had a similar failure at the goal line while posting an ugly 14 yards on 11 carries. Though he has just 48 rushing yards in two divisional games this season, Gore has averaged 88.8 yards in contests with non-NFC North opponents. He may still have a touch time bouncing back next week, as the 49ers will face a tough Broncos defense in Denver.

Gore (back) had 18 carries for 107 yards and caught one pass for one yard in Sunday's 22-17 win over Kansas City.

Gore was dealing with his first ever back injury earlier this week in practice, but didn't appear to be effected at all Sunday. Meanwhile, rookie Carlos Hyde was also productive, rushing for 43 yards on 10 carries. The veteran Gore has once again been effective as a runner this year, but like the past few seasons, he hasn't been active in the passing game, with just four receptions in five games. He'll face St. Louis on the road in Week 6.

Gore (back) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.

Gore is coming off his most productive game of the season and will square off against a Chiefs defense surrendering 117 rushing yards per game (19th in the NFL).

Gore (back) is probable for Sunday's game against Kansas City.

Gore's health appears to be a non-issue heading into Sunday. His long awaited decline has yet to happen in 2014, as Gore is averaging 4.4 yards per carry heading into Sunday and is coming off a 119-yard rushing effort against the Eagles, adding a 55-yard touchdown reception for emphasis. Gore faces off against a Kansas City defense this week that's allowing 5.0 yards per carry.

Gore (back) practiced fully Wednesday, Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee reports.

Gore has never before dealt with a back injury, but the ailment didn't stop him from fitting in every rep in the first practice of the week. His upcoming opponent, the Chiefs, have allowed a robust 5.5 YPC to opposing running backs this season, which places the 49ers' lead back in good fantasy standing in Week 5.

Gore ran for 119 yards on 24 carries and caught a 55-yard touchdown in Sunday's win over Philadelphia.

A week after receiving just six carries, the 49ers used Gore early and often. Gore not only had a long pass play, but also had a 28-yard rush, showing a nice burst down the sideline. He should be in line for another productive game next week, taking on Kansas City at home.

Gore had just six carries for 10 yards in Sunday's loss at Arizona.

Gore was held in check by a very stingy Cardinals rush defense, and for the second time in three weeks, rookie Carlos Hyde vultured a touchdown in the red zone. Expect Gore to put up better numbers next week against Philadelphia.

Gore had 13 carries for 63 yards and a touchdown, adding two receptions for 12 yards on two targets, in Sunday's 28-20 loss to the Bears.

Gore had an impressive 54-yard touchdown run wiped out by a questionable holding call on Anquan Boldin. The veteran running back hasn't been a huge fantasy producer through two weeks, but he still looks quite good running the ball, and is easily out-touching rookie Carlos Hyde, who had one reception for five yards and four carries for zero yards.

Gore had 16 carries for 63 yards in Sunday's 28-17 win at Dallas.

Even though San Francisco had a huge lead at halftime, they didn't possess the ball much, limiting Gore's touches. Meanwhile, rookie Carlos Hyde looked explosive in limited action, rushing for 50 yards on seven carries with a touchdown. While Hyde's presence will probably hurt Gore's overall numbers, it should help him stay fresh.
