The 49ers lost their first game of the preseason 23-3 to the Baltimore Ravens on Thursday. Part of the loss could be attributed to the poor play of the backup QB's, as well as the team resting several starters, including starting running back Frank Gore. (Source: NFL.com)

Fantasy Impact: Gore's lack of action Thursday can be attributed to the team wanting to rest the 31 year old veteran, as well getting a better look at their options behind him. One of those options, Carlos Hyde, shined in limited work, going for 39 yards on 5 rushes, with a long of 19yds. While Gore's status for 2014 shouldn't be in danger, Hyde's progress is one to watch as we expect him to be a prime candidate to steal carries and possibly platoon with Gore in the regular season.

Frank Gore is still a solid RB2 option despite his waning involvement in the passing game and the addition of Carlos Hyde and a healthy Marcus Lattimore. The 49ers will ride Gore until the wheels fall off or until Hyde passes him on the depth chart.
Legion Report | Aug 23rd
Each year fantasy owners question Frank Gore’s age and ability and each year he churns out another solid season. At age 31, Gore not only has age and an extensive amount of carries to his name, but he also has a number of youthful RB’s waiting in the wings. The 49ers round out their rushing attack with Gore, Carlos Hyde and Marcus Lattimore. Numerous reports have surfaced that Gore will receive 50+ fewer carries in 2014. We feel that Gore is still serviceable, but when plugging him in expect a lower ceiling player to go against opponents. We consider Gore a low-end RB2 in 2014.

Age 31 season should bring in more of a shared workload this year.

Has aged gracefully, though there were signs of a slowdown late last year.

If you listened to my cliff year proclamations on Gore last year, I'll understand if you don't buy this but at 31 with both Lattimore (NFI) and Hyde clamoring for touches...

Gore will continue to lose some carries in an attempt for him to stay rested for the long haul. Last season in his last 11 games (including playoffs) Gore ran for 3.8 yards per carry and 3 TDs and caught just 11 passes. Carlos Hyde is waiting in the wings.

Gore is still the main man until he gets driven into the ground.

Always good for 1,000 yards and near double digit TDs. If you have Gore as your bench RB for bye-weeks you are going to be a happy owner.

The 49ers learned early on last season that the game hinges on getting Frank Gore the ball early and often. I think he has one more good season before turning the reigns over to one of the young bucks.

Gore was the 13th ranked fantasy running back in 2013, but he turns 31 years old and has 2,187 career carries. I am interested to see if his role is scaled down this year, the 49ers have both second year RB Marcus Lattimore and rookie RB Carlos Hyde competing for carries.

with a banged-up RB core, this 9er will have one more good year

by Eric Stashin (aka The Rotoprofessor) Running back is always a tough position to fill, especially now with more teams looking to employee committees as opposed to having a true lead back. In the past the 49′ers Frank Gore would be an easy selection early

In today's Three and Out: The Niners could begin using less of Frank Gore; the Packers want to use more of Eddie Lacy.
Breaking Football | Jul 10th
Frank Gore has been one of the most consistent fantasy football running backs in the game for the past 8 seasons. Since getting regular playing time in 2006, he hasn’t had a season with fewer than 249 touches, and has easily surpassed 1000 total yards each year. At 31 years old, however, Gore appears to be entering the twilight of his career. He compiled just 1,269 total yards last year, his...
