Frank Gore a Week 3 disappointment?
by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer

Frank Gore has started off this season running well with 29 carries for 129 yards and a touchdown through two games against Dallas and Chicago.

He lost a touchdown to rookie Carlos Hyde in Week 1, but he doesn't look like he's slowing down yet.

This week, however, Gore is facing a tough task against the Cardinals. Arizona allowed Ryan Mathews to score in Week 1 and Rashad Jennings had 109 total yards in Week 2. But Gore was held to 13 carries for 14 yards at Arizona last year, and we expect him to struggle again this week.

It's hard to bench Gore in the majority of leagues, but don't be surprised if he's held to single digits in Fantasy points in this matchup.

Frank Gore averages 4.8 yards per carry
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

49ers running back Frank Gore ran 13 times for 63 yards (4.8 ypc) against the Bears, including an 8-yard touchdown on a counter in which he lunged for the end zone. Gore probably should have gotten the ball more in a game San Fran led by 17 points.

Gore, who has 72 career touchdowns, caught both his targets for 12 yards. He'll visit the Cardinals in Week 3.

Frank Gore gets work, but can't find end zone Week 1
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

San Francisco running back Frank Gore got some action, but didn't get into the end zone Week 1 against the Cowboys.

Gore was a victim of circumstance in some ways. The 49ers were incredibly efficient in the passing game, putting 21 points on the board in the first quarter. While that would typically lead to more work from Gore, the team opted to limit his carries with a big lead.

On the team's only other scoring drive, rookie Carlos Hyde vultured a four-yard score from Gore. Hyde and Gore mostly split carries evenly the rest of the way. The Cowboys chewed up a lot of playing time in the second half, so the 49ers opportunities were fairly limited.

Gore finished with 16 carries for 63 yards. He did not catch any passes. Gore will take on the Bears Week 2.

Frank Gore ready to roll Week 1
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

San Francisco running back Frank Gore is ready to dominate Week 1 against the Cowboys.

Gore received minimal work in the preseason, with just three rushing attempts. That’s for the best, as the 31-year-old has put a lot of milage on his legs over his career. At this point in his career, it’s not like Gore needs the extra reps in order to get ready for the season.

If there is any rust, Gore should have no problem shaking it off against Dallas Week 1. The Cowboys boasted the worst Fantasy defense against running backs last season. Dallas allowed 23.88 Fantasy points against opposing rushers last season. The club made moves during the offseason to patch some hopes on the defense, but the team is still expected to struggle this season.

There’s a sense that Gore will eventually lose some playing time to rookie Carlos Hyde. While that may happen later in the year, when Gore has already built up some carries, it may not happen often Week 1. On top of that, the 49ers have been limiting Gore’s carries for a few seasons now, and he’s still managed to put up solid Fantasy numbers. Against the Cowboys, he’s a must-start.

49ers will closely monitor Frank Gore's workload again this season
by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

49ers running backs coach Tom Rathman told reporters that they have closely monitored Frank Gore's workload in the last three-to-four years, and they'll do so again this season, per the Bay Area News Group on Thursday.

"We need to manage him," Rathman said. "We need to keep him (fresh) from Week 1 to the Super Bowl. So that's going to be the biggest challenge. He’s ready to go and he’s right where he needs to be."

Second-round pick Carlos Hyde could be the perfect back to work behind Gore this season. Hyde has 88 yards and averaged 5.9 yards per carry through three preseason games.

In 2013, Gore rushed for 1,128 yards on 176 carries. He rushed for 618 yards on 146 carries (4.2 yards per carry) through his first eight games, 130 carries for 510 yards (3.9 yards per carry) in the second half of the season.
