Summary

Frank Gore became the 49ers' featured runner in 2006, his second season in the league, and has been a solid fantasy starter every single year since then. Over the past three seasons, many were predicting that he'd start to decline; but he finished as a borderline RB1-RB2 in each of those seasons. Nonetheless, many this season are predicting yet again that he'll start to decline -- and one of these years, the naysayers will be right. This may be the year. Gore just turned 31 years old, and while he is a versatile RB who can be effective in the passing game, his receptions have dropped sharply since Jim Harbaugh became head coach. Younger backs like Kendall Hunter, Carlos Hyde, and Marcus Lattimore will be clamoring for playing time, and Gore may be spelled more this season than last. You can reasonably expect him to slip from a borderline RB1-RB2 down to a borderline RB2-RB3 in 2014. (May 25)

49ers | Frank Gore not thinking about extension (Wed Aug 20, 05:01 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore said he is playing for a Super Bowl in 2014 and is not thinking about a contract extension. ďThis year Iím playing for a Super Bowl. Iím not even thinking about an extension,Ē Gore said.

Our View: Gore hasn't really showed signs of an imminent dropoff and he is still the lead back on a winning team that loves to run the ball. He's a value as an RB2 you can get in the 5th round or later because of his low weekly ceiling.
