Week 9: vs St. Louis Rams

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. San Francisco went into their bye week with a sour taste in their mouth after being blasted 17-42 in Denver - Frank Gore had 9/20/0 rushing in the game, and Colin Kaepernick was second on the team with 3/18/0 rushing to his credit. At the seasons' half-way mark, Gore is the league's 34th-ranked fantasy running back with 102/420/1 rushing and 4/68/1 receiving - the lack of scoring on Gore's part is depressing his fantasy value. Backup Carlos Hyde has amassed 48/161/2 rushing and 6/12/0 receiving to check in at 61st among fantasy backs - he is siphoning off just enough fantasy points to keep Gore in a RB #3 role in fantasy terms. The Rams' rush D gave up 34/143/3 to the Chiefs last week, and 29/171/1 to the Seahawks two weeks ago. They should be the tonic that Gore needs to surge in Week 9, despite his 16/38/0 showing at St. Louis two games ago (the 49ers threw for 343 yards passing in that game). Advantage, San Francisco.

Recent Game Summaries

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.
