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)

Latest News

49ers | Frank Gore unlikely to play in preseason (Mon Jul 28, 12:47 PM) - San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore is unlikely to play in the preseason this year. RBs Carlos Hyde and Jewel Hampton have both looked good so far during training camp. The injuries to RBs Kendall Hunter (knee) and LaMichael James (elbow) have left the team thin at the running back position. RB Marcus Lattimore isn't practicing yet due to physical limitations and not the mental side of his recovery from a significant knee injury in college.

Our View: Carlos Hyde's ADP will go up in the wake of these recent injuries, but Gore will still be the lead back for this team. He's a solid third RB you can get as late as the 7th round, and his value may be closer to a high floor/low ceiling RB2.

49ers | LaMichael James may be odd man out at RB (Mon Jul 21, 12:00 AM) - San Francisco 49ers RB LaMichael James could have trouble making the roster this year, according to ESPN.com's Bill Williamson. Williamson believes RB Frank Gore, RB Carlos Hyde, RB Marcus Lattimore, RB Kendall Hunter and FB Bruce Miller will make the roster.

Our View: James could make the team based on his return ability. He's not going to get many carries if he makes the final roster, but James could catch a few passes as a change-of-pace back.
