Frank Gore RB SF 15 Days
Frank Gore rushed 13 times for 31 yards in Monday night's Week 12 win over the Redskins.
Gore was targeted two times in the passing game, catching one for three yards. The 49ers employed a rotation at the running back spot for much of the night, getting Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James some snaps. James didn't register a touch, but he played a handful of snaps. Hunter rushed eight times. Gore didn't appear to be injured, so the 49ers may have just been limiting his reps in preparation for the stretch run. He gets the Rams at home in Week 13. Gore rushed for a season-best 153 yards and one touchdown against St. Louis in Week 4. The Rams have been playing better defense of late, but Gore will be an RB1.

Frank Gore rushed 13 times for 48 yards in San Francisco's Week 11 loss to the Saints, adding two catches for eight yards.
Gore could have had a third catch - and potential 79-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter - but committed a brutal drop on 2nd-and-9 from San Francisco's own 21-yard line. Interestingly, Gore touched the ball just once in the final period even though San Francisco entered the session leading 17-14, and moved ahead 20-14 with 13:27 remaining. Gore has now been held below 100 yards rushing in four consecutive games, though today was the first time since Week 2 he didn't manage at least 80 yards on the ground. With the whole 49ers offense likely to fare better next Monday night against the Redskins, Gore will remain in the RB1 conversation for Week 12.

Frank Gore rushed 19 times for 71 yards and two touchdowns and caught a six-yard pass in the 49ers' Week 8 blowout win over Jacksonville.
Kendall Hunter saw nine late-game carries because the 49ers had a 32-point lead in the fourth quarter. Scoring like a legit RB1 since a slow two-game start to the season, Gore is now on pace for 1,236 rushing yards and 14 touchdowns. He's averaging 4.23 yards per carry, although that clip has come up since Colin Kaepernick started running more. The 49ers have a Week 9 bye before hosting the Panthers in Week 10, and visiting the Saints in Week 11.

Frank Gore rushed for 101 yards on 25 carries in Week 6 versus Arizona.
It was Gore's second 100-yard effort in the past three games. He wasn't targeted in the passing game and also was vultured by Kendall Hunter for a six-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. Gore and the 49ers travel to Tennessee next week. Marshawn Lynch found the end zone twice against Tennessee on Sunday. Gore is a weekly high-end RB2 following his slow start to the season.

Frank Gore had 20 carries for 153 yards and one touchdown in Thursday night's Week 4 win over the Rams.
After getting just 13 touches last week, the 49ers made a point to get Gore more involved. It was by far his biggest workload of the season, with his touchdown coming on a 44-yard run at the end of the first half. Gore wasn't involved in the passing game, and finished with just two targets. He likely would of had an even bigger night had the 49ers decided not to rest him in the fourth quarter. Through the first four weeks, Gore has 295 yards on 61 carries (4.8 YPC) and two touchdowns.
