Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 10 vs NO (23 / 81 / 1 rush, 1 / 1 / 2 / 0 rec)
Gore started off with a bang as the 49ers looked like they could get whatever they wanted in the running game. He picked up 23 yards on his first 4 carries, including a 4 yard touchdown run. The touchdown was extremely well blocked and Gore rumbled around the left edge untouched. Gore started the next drive with an 11 yard carry up the middle, again behind great blocking. He chugged down the field but was removed the second time the 49ers got to the red zone and Carlos Hyde picked up the score. The third drive started with a nine yard run from Gore. It included a nice cutback and then he ran over a linebacker for good measure. A 10 yard run later in the quarter set up the 49ers 3rd and final touchdown of the game. The Saints sold out against the run in the second half and the sledding got much tougher for Gore. His final 9 carries yielded only 25 yards and the offense sputtered.
2014 Week 11 vs NYG (19 / 95 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
Gore ran through some monster holes early in the game and only an awkward fumble soiled an otherwise solid performance. A 14 yard run that included a great cutback set the tone on the first offensive play of the game. Unfortunately that drive ended with Gore falling down in the backfield and dropping the ball trying to get back up without ever being touched. He bounced back with a 17 yard carry on the next drive. The run went off tackle and Gore beat a linebacker to the edge then ran through an arm tackle. Gore had a 16 yard gain around the right end in the second quarter that was blocked so well that he went untouched to the sideline on the big gain. Gore set up the 49ers touchdown with an 11 yard run on 2nd and 10 in the 3rd quarter. The play was designed of right guard but Gore bounced it outside at the perfect time. Gore also had two catches in the game. The first was a nice hands catch on a pass thrown wide for a gain of 8. The second was much easier, with great play design getting Gore wide open in the flats for a gain of 11. Gore's upside was limited by the fact that Carlos Hyde was much more involved, with 10 touches in the game.
2014 Week 12 vs WAS (13 / 36 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Gore had a frustrating afternoon behind an offensive line that struggled to open up holes. His first two carries went for four yards a piece, and they were hard earned yards at that. Early in the second quarter he picked up 8 yards on a really nice run that included a well-timed cut at the line and another at the second level. His final 8 carries only went for 15 yards, and included a fumble. The fumble came after a 6 yard gain and Gore was uncharacteristically loose with the ball. He slightly redeemed himself by picking up 3 yards on 4th and 1 to keep the game winning drive alive.

Our View: This is a good sign for his availability in Week 11. Gore is at his usual spot of being a solid RB2 this week, but he's got some upside against a weak Giants D.
