News you need to know
From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 29): The squeaky wheel of Gore got the grease in the form of a feature back helping of touches, and he put up fantastic numbers in response, which should keep his role large in this offense looking for an identity.
Week 5: vs Kansas City Chiefs

2014 Week 2 vs CHI (13 / 63 / 1 rush, 2 / 2 / 12 / 0 rec)
Gore didn't see a lot of touches in this game, but he made some big plays when he did. His best carry of the day was an electric 54 yard touchdown run that was called back because of an inconsequential holding penalty on Anquan Boldin. After getting no touches on the 49ers first red zone trip, Gore took an inside handoff 8 yards to the end zone in the 2nd quarter. He made a nice cutback on the run and dove into the end zone unimpeded. The rest of the day Gore was classic Gore, breaking tackles and seeking out contact. His limited usage was the only thing that prevented it from being a big day on the ground.
2014 Week 3 vs ARI (6 / 10 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gore had a rough day against the Cardinals vaunted run defense. His volume was low and his efficiency was even lower. He was stuffed on a carry inside the five and generally had no hole to hit when the ball was given to him. He picked up a couple of first downs on three yard carries but those were the highlights of his day.
2014 Week 4 vs PHI (24 / 119 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 55 / 1 rec)
Gore had most of his success running off left tackle, including a 15 yard gain on his first carry. He didn't have to do much besides follow blockers on most of his runs to that area of the field. His receiving touchdown came on a throwback play where Kaepernick rolled all the way to his left and then threw across his body to a wide open Gore. Gore broke one tackle and sprinted to the end zone for a 55 yard score. Gore had a 6 yard run in the second half, that involved three cuts and a whole lot of plowing. That run was a great illustration of how hard Gore worked in the second half. He was paid off with an easy 28 yard run (again off the left edge) where he went untouched for the first 27 yards. At times it seemed like the 49ers forgot about the run game, but the turning point came when they began to feed the ball to Gore.
Latest News49ers | Frank Gore set to shoulder load? (Mon Sep 29, 08:36 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore had a season-high 24 carries in Week 4, and WR Anquan Boldin said that making sure Gore saw plenty of touches was the game plan from the start. 'That was our mindset, just getting him back on the ball and getting him touches, making sure we controlled the line of scrimmage,' Boldin said. Our View: It worked for the 49ers on Sunday against the Eagles....and they should go back to the well.
link to story 49ers | Frank Gore used heavily (Mon Sep 29, 12:38 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore ran for 119 yards in the win over the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 4 Sunday, Sept. 28, and he also had a career-long 55-yard touchdown catch in the game. Gore had 24 carries in the game for an average of five yards per carry. Our View: The squeaky wheel did get the grease! Gore complained about the offense last week...and his fantasy owners were certainly frustrated about his lack of production. The team fixed that this week and got back to looking more like the 49ers we were expecting this year. That recipe for success could carry over to the following weeks.
