Isaiah Sirois
FantasyPros
Please don't start Frank Gore unless you have no other options. San Francisco's defense did a good job limiting the Cardinals' running backs to just 86 yards (3.9 YPC), and the timeless bruiser already struggles enough with efficiency. Gore is a touchdown-dependent option at running back, and he's not worth considering at flex unless you play in a standard-scoring league. 
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Le'Veon Bell's absence has vaulted Gore into the starting role for a NFL team yet again. However, this offense is barely going to put points up on the board and the 49ers have one of the most stout run defenses in the entire league. Gore shouldn't be considered as anything more than a desperation FLEX start. 
Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
Depending on how you expect the game to go, that'll determine which running back gets more time on the field. Gore is sure to be the starter with Le'Veon Bell out, though it was Adams who played more snaps in the second half when the Jets fell behind. He played on 10 pass snaps while Gore played just four such snaps. Oddsmakers clearly think this will be a one-sided game, and not one in the Jets favor. The 49ers defense isn't one you need to attack with running backs, though, as they allowed just seven running backs all of last year to finish better than the RB24 against them. A large part of that is due to the miniscule 400 yards they allowed through the air to running backs last year (that's just 25.0 yards per game), which was the second fewest in the league. On top of that, they were one of just two teams who didn't allow a receiving touchdown to running backs last year. This game figures to be a lot like last week in terms of gamescript where the Jets running backs totaled just 18 touches. We have Gore who will start and likely receive goal-line touches (though Adams got the only one last week, which came in garbage time), while Adams will be used on passing downs. Both of them should be considered low-upside RB4s.We wondered if Drew Sample would be a bigger part of the passing game in his second year, but after seeing Uzomah tally five targets to Sample's one, we have to assume he's still the one to target among Bengals tight ends. The Browns linebacking and safety group is among the worst in the league, and that's who typically covers the tight end position. It's why we saw seven different tight ends finish as top-eight options against them last year, and their unit only got worse this offseason after losing all their starting linebackers, and then losing their second-round safety in training camp. It's no wonder Mark Andrews found his way into the end zone twice while collecting 58 yards on six targets last week. The problem is that there are a lot of mouths to feed on the Bengals offense, and the Browns do allow production on the ground. Because of that, Uzomah will be a sketchy streamer, but this matchup is a good one.
