Frank Gore, Carlos Hyde held in check in 49ers' Week 7 loss
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

49ers running back Frank Gore rushed for just 20 yards on nine carries and failed to haul in his only target in his team's 42-17 loss to the Broncos in Week 7.

The 49ers fell behind quickly as the Broncos jumped out to a 14-0 first-quarter lead, and that left San Francisco's running back out to dry during a failed comeback effort. Backup Carlos Hyde rushed for 15 yards on his three carries while adding eight yards on two receptions. The pair will head into the Week 8 bye on a down note, but the running game will look to get back on track in Week 9 against the Rams.

Fantasy Analysis | 1413301158
Colin Kaepernick becoming more trustworthy
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

With his team trailing for the entire first half, Colin Kaepernick let it fly Week 6 at St. Louis and put up numbers on par with some of the elite passers in the game as a result. He threw for 300 yards for just the third time in his career and had three touchdown passes for just the fourth time.

It gave you a sense of what his upside could be if the 49ers opened up their offense a little more, but with such a strong defense, they rarely have reason to do that.

Still, with Frank Gore aging, Kaepernick himself has been more of a weapon for them this year, throwing for at least 200 yards every week. While this was his first game with more than 20 Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com leagues (in part because it was just his third game with multiple touchdowns), he has at least scored double-digit Fantasy points every week, making him the seventh-best player at the position to date. His rushing ability keeps him consistent.

My assessment of Kaepernick hasn't really changed with this performance. He's a quarterback you can feel comfortable starting every week, but efforts like this one where he sets your team apart will be few and far between.

Frank Gore pulled for Carlos Hyde in critical situations
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

49ers veteran running back Frank Gore was replaced by rookie Carlos Hyde at several critical moments in Monday's win over the Rams. Midway through the fourth quarter, Hyde failed on three consecutive carries inside the St. Louis 2 while Gore watched.

Then, with the 49ers needing a first down to run out the clock, it was Hyde not Gore getting the carries.

Gore finished with 38 yards on 16 carries (2.4 ypc). The lowlight came when he failed to convert 4th-and-1 with 4:19 left in the game. Gore nearly had a 27-yard catch, but officials ruled he came down out of bounds. Hyde ran 11 times for 14 yards (1.3 ypc) and caught his only target for 1 yard.

The 49ers visit the Broncos in Week 7.

Frank Gore reps scaled back by 49ers as part of plan
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The comparative lack of rushing attempts for 49ers featured back Frank Gore this season might have raised a few eyebrows, but it was part of the team's master plan, according to offensive coordinator Greg Roman.

"We don't want to just ride that stallion all day, every day," he told CBSBayArea.com. "There's a point of diminishing returns at some point. That's almost true for any player at that position. Who gets hit more than running backs?"

Gore has been his typical productive self with 365 yards on 77 carries, but that marks the second-fewest attempts through five games in his career. The only exception was 2009, but he was dealing with an ankle injury early that season.

One difference is the presence of promising rookie running back Carlos Hyde, who enjoyed his finest effort in Week 5 with 43 yards on 10 carries.

Frank Gore goes over 100 yards for second straight game
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

49ers running back Frank Gore hammered his way to a second straight 100-yard rushing game, piling up 107 yards on 18 carries in the win over the Chiefs. These were Gore's first back-to-back 100-yard efforts since he strung five together in 2011.

Gore, 31, is the oldest 49er to rush for 100 yards in two straight games since 1960. Gore added a 1-yard reception.

Gore, who's averaging 4.7 yards per carry, visits the Rams in Week 6 on Monday Night Football.
