Week 3: at Arizona Cardinals

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Through two games this season, Frank Gore has 29/126/1 rushing with two targets for 2/12/0 receiving, while Carlos Hyde has handled 11/50/1 rushing and seen two targets for 1/5/0 receiving. Last week, Gore was featured more prominently than in Week 1, with 13/63/1 rushing and 2/12/0 receiving, while Hyde handled 4/0/0 rushing and 1/5/0 receiving during the game. Gore is still the lead back in San Francisco, but he's not approached 20 touches in a game just yet. The Cardinals were first in the NFL last season allowing an average of 84.4 yards rushing per game, and were second in the NFL with just five rushing scores surrendered over 16 games. They continued with that level of play in Week 1 2014, holding the Chargers to 24/52/1 rushing on Monday Night Football. In Week 2, the Giants managed 27/81/0 rushing vs. Arizona - they average 66.5 yards rushing allowed per game through two games this season, third place among the top ten teams in the league in this category. Gore is effective when he handles the football, but he isn't getting enough touches to be an elite fantasy back currently. Also, he faces one of the best defensive fronts in football this week - advantage, Arizona.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs DAL (16 / 63 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Gore had a solid but relatively uneventful day. He rotated with Carlos Hyde, resulting in a fresh looking Gore in the fourth quarter. His first carry of the day came in the second quarter and was his best as he burst through a hole in the middle of the line for a 20 yard gain. He only had 13 yards on his next 9 carries, but his fresh legs paid off when the team needed to kill the clock in the fourth quarter. Gore had 30 yards on the 49ers last two drives including a 12 yard run around the right side where he ran through two arm tackles.

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.

49ers | Frank Gore makes history (Mon Sep 8, 01:18 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore totaled 63 rushing yards in the team's Week 1 win over the Dallas Cowboys Sunday, Sept. 7, making him the 29th player in NFL history with 10,000 yards for his career. Gore is also the 10th player with 10,000 yards and 10 seasons all with the same team.

Our View: Start your running backs against the Cowboys. They are historically bad on defense, and they're not getting any better. Even consider quality backup running backs as at least "what the heck" flex plays against the Cowboys.
