From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): Gore's weekly volatility is killing his reliability as an RB2/Flex option. San Francisco is going into their bye with few upcoming games that appear to have comfortable win game scripts for Gore. His value is questionable right now.

Week 8: bye week

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs KC (18 / 107 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 1 / 0 rec)

Death, taxes and Frank Gore. These are the certainties in life. Gore looked just as effective as ever on Sunday, letting his offensive line set up blocks and then bursting through arm tackles on his way to the secondary. Gore was pivotal to the 49ers getting into field goal territory and keeping the Chiefs offense on the sidelines. Gore, who averaged an impressive 5.9 yards per carry, did show subtle signs of his age however. There were several runs that took Gore a longer time than usual to hop up from, and there were a few minutes when it would have been fair to wonder if he would stay on the sidelines for an extended period of time. To his credit though, he did not give too long of a window for his talented rookie backup to steal carries as he quickly rejoined the offense after numerous spells from Carlos Hyde. Still, even though Gore has escaped father time's grasp much longer than many anticipated, one has to wonder if this is the beginning of the passing of the torch.

2014 Week 6 vs STL (16 / 38 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Gore had 4 carries for 21 yards on the 49ers first drive of the 2nd half but was almost completely ineffective outside of that. He did nearly make a great leaping catch after lining up out wide. He did a nice job of high-pointing the deep throw from Kaepernick but his hand came down out of bounds just before his knee landed in bounds. Gore worked hard for every yard he got, but his line didn't give him much. He continued to lose goal line carries to Carlos Hyde, even after Hyde was stuffed twice in a row from inside the 2. Late in the game he was given a shot at a 4th and 1, but was also stuffed.

2014 Week 7 vs DEN (9 / 20 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Gore had a miserable evening with very little volume and even less production. He ran hard, but the line wasn't opening up holes and he doesn't have the elusiveness to succeed in that setting. His best carry was a 7 yard carry on the team's 3rd drive. He cutback at the perfect time, ran through an arm tackle and then bulldozed a linebacker. Gore did receive one carry from the 5 yard line, but was stuffed on the play. His last touch of the game came with 9:24 left in the third quarter.

49ers | Frank Gore seeing more rest (Fri Oct 10, 07:55 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore has 77 carries through five games, his fewest since head coach Jim Harbaugh took over as head coach. Gore had 78 carries through five games last season, 79 carries through five games in 2012, and 94 in 2011.

Our View: His involvement in the offense has trended up the last two weeks, and the performance of the offense has improved for it. Look for him to get a big workload on Monday night against the Rams.
