49ers running back Frank Gore will look to get back on track at home against a stingy Seattle defense in Week 14.
In a 29-3 loss in Seattle earlier this season, Gore was limited to season lows in carries (nine) and rushing yards (16). He has totaled 15 carries for 44 yards over his last two meetings against Seattle dating back to last season. To make matters worse, Gore has been held under 50 yards on the ground over his last three game and has only one touchdown over his last four.
Gore will have a difficult matchup against a Seattle defense that has not allowed a touchdown over the previous five games. Seattle has allowed only 107.2 yards per game on the ground this season. Opposing running backs have scored only 13.50 Fantasy points per game. Consider him a low-end starting option for Week 14.
49ers tight end Vance McDonald suffered an ankle injury during Sunday's game against the Rams in Week 13. McDonald sustained the injury in the first quarter and was able to return in the second half. He was not involved in the passing game and was held without a target in a 23-13 victory.
49ers rookie running back Marcus Lattimore, who was expected to sit out the 2013 season recovering from a major knee injury suffered in college last year, could be cleared to practice soon, according to The State. Lattimore has been on the Reserve/Non-Football Injury list all season.
