2012 Pros and Cons

(+) Frank Gore was the engine that drove the 49ers last season as he compiled the second-most rushing attempts of his career (282 attempts; 312 in 2006)


(+) He also had the second-highest rushing total in his career as well (1,211 yards; 1,695 in 2006)


(+) Has been the 49ers featured back since 2006 and despite the talented youth around him, doesn’t look like he wants to give the role up anytime soon


(+) Showed he can still dominate for long stretches at a time for your fantasy team putting up five-straight 100-yard games last season


(+) Not only scored a rushing TD in four straight games during his 100-yard game stretch, but also had a three-game stretch with TDs late in the season as well


(–) The 49ers have a slew of running backs and it looks like each will have some sort of role this season, thus limiting Frank Gore’s chances


(–) The new additions to the WR corps could change the offensive scheme even more to a semi-pass-happy attack


(–) Either way, Gore is due to see a more limited role in the offense anyway with all the talent around him


(–) Gore is turning 29 this season, so a slow-down could be coming


(–) Always been a reliable receiver, but his reception total dropped to a meager 17 catches last season


(–) With LaMicheal James in the fold as a potential third-down back, his number of receptions this season could drop even further

2009 Review

frank gore header - the tank


Frank Gore is a workhorse. If it weren’t for the two-game injury he sustained during the beginning part of the season, Gore would have ended up the fourth best fantasy running back in the league in 2009.  It was really more like three games, because in that third game, the injury forced him to leave in the first quarter after just one carry.  Considering that Gore is as close to an "all-purpose, every-down back" that there is in the NFL, his overall numbers should not surprise anyone.  Even though the 49ers system was supposed to be set up as a ball-control offense, the plan changed early in the season, but that still didn’t stop “The Inconvenient Truth” from putting up starting fantasy RB numbers over his limited amount of games.

2010 Fantasy Outlook







Gore should be primed for another outstanding season considering that the only thing that stopped him from turning in Top-5 fantasy numbers last year was injury.  When healthy, Gore is one of the best all-purpose backs in the league, and with the system the 49ers run, expect him to bust out some serious stats in 2010.  Is it possible for him to crack the big three of Chris Johnson, Adrian Peterson, and Maurice Jones-Drew?  Maybe not, but no other back in the league has as good of a chance to do so as he does.  Take him as your #1 RB in fantasy drafts this year with confidence.


~ The 49ers are looking to return to a more run-based offense this year, which of course helps Gore out immensely


~ A full offseason with Alex Smith, Michael Crabtree and the rest of the offense intact will solidify Jimmy Raye’s offensive game-plan


~ Singletary is still Singletary and will run the ball a ton

contract

Gore signed a four-year, $28.012 million contract extension through 2011 back in March of ‘07.  The deal included a $6.5 million signing bonus, a $4.165 million option bonus in the second year (which he has already collected), and $100,000 workout bonuses for 2009-2011.  The remainder of the deal is below:


2010 - $2.85 million (+ $1.85 million roster bonus)


2011 - $2.9 million (+ $2 million roster bonus)


2012 - Free Agent


 


Gore is a stud, and because his contract is structured nicely for both this season and the next, it won't affect him one way or the other.

Handcuff

Glen Coffee - Glen is a player with good size, fair speed, and a quick decision-maker, but possesses just above average explosiveness.  If you draft Gore, you should plan on a mid-to-late round flier on Coffee for sure, but keep an eye on the rookie out of Mississippi State, Anthony Dixon, as well.

Injury Report

Yellow

Gore has been dinged up for much of his career. He does well enough to play through pain, but the pain always seems to be present.

Gore's carries expected to decline

According to Bill Williamson via espn.com Frank Gore's carries are expected to slide. Gore is 31 years old, and with rookie Carlos Hyde, second year pro Marcus Lattimore and veterans Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James, there is no need to push him, but dont expect a dramatic decrease.

Pyro's take: Frank Gore is entering his final year of his contract and even though its likely that he wont see the 276 carries he did last year, it wont be reduced enough to hurt is free-agency chances. Gore had nine touchdowns and 1,128 yards rushing, with a 51 yard long, which shows he still has "it."

Most likely your going to see a dip in touchdowns as Carlos Hyde will most likely be the goal line back, and for PPR owners he has not caught more than 50 passes since 2009, and has a total of 61 receptions over the last three years.

Its time to put his place as back-up and possible three on your fantasy depth charts, and drop him a tier or so in your books.

Gore is the key to a 49ers win

Since 2009, Gore has played in nine games for the 49ers against the Seahawks.

In five San Francisco wins, he has rushed for 590 yards on 94 carries, with a high of 207 and a low of 59.

In four 49ers losses, he has rushed for a combined 107 yards on 41 carries, and never more than 38 (he missed a game against Seattle in 2010 due to injury).

“They’re going to get Frank Gore the ball,’’ Seattle defensive end Cliff Avril said Monday, then repeated that “they’re going to get Frank Gore the ball, then maybe take a shot or something like that. But it all starts with Frank Gore.”

Harbaugh is 4-2 against the Seahawks, and in those four wins Gore has rushed for 383 yards on 78 carries. In the two losses, each in Seattle, he has 44 yards on 15 carries.

Pyro's take: The Seahawks defense is going to key in on Gore, just like they have in their last two meetings in Seattle. Last season Gore ran for 28 yards on six carries, and only 16 yards on nine carries this season.

The success Gore has had against Seattle has come at home. The crowd is going to be making a lot of noise, and it will be incumbent on the running game to take them out of the game. This could be a tough day for the Tank.

Gore looking to get back on track against Washington

On Sunday, against a Saints team that was ranked 23rd in the league against the run and was allowing a league high average of five yards a run, Frank Gore carried 13 times for 48 yards (a 3.7 average).

The Saints defense is vastly improved this year, but Gore said: “It was more us making mistakes. I give them credit, but we made a lot of mistakes.”

Gore was stifled, save for on 24-yard run. But, as they did a week ago, the 49ers seemed to want to win or lose the game on Colin Kaepernick’s arm. Gore carried the ball just six times in the second half, gaining just 15 yards.



Pyro's take: Gore has been held under 100 yards rushing and without a touchdown over the past 2 weeks. The 49ers have not featured a dominant offense this season, but Gore has been one of the stronger performers.

The Tank has a good chance to have his third 100-yard game of the season, as the Redskins are allowing running backs to score over 22 points against per game. Frank should be able to rush for a touchdown this week as Matt Forte rushed for 3 touchdowns against Washington in week 7.

Pro Bowl: SJax replaced by Frank Gore

Rams running back Steven Jackson will be sitting out this year's Pro Bowl due to a herniated disc in his back. 49ers RB Frank Gore will be taking his place on the NFC roster.

Pyro's take: Jackson dealt with his back problem for the most of the season, so missing this game comes as no surprise. Even though Gore missed a couple of games this year, he still put up a career high in touchdowns this year (10 rushing, 3 receiving).

Gore limited by toe injury

49ers running back Frank Gore was limited in practice on Wednesday due to a toe injury.

Pyro's take: Gore should be just fine this weekend, and though he's going up against a tough Eagles D, he still makes for a fine RB1 play on your fantasy football team on Sunday.

Singletary promises Gore more carries

49ers coach Mike Singletary promised running back Frank Gore that he would not have another game like he did against Seattle in Week 13 when he only got 9 carries.
"He's a huge part of our offense and we're trying to figure it out," Singletary said. "In order for us to win, we need you to run the ball. Just be patient while we find that balance."

Pyro's take: Good news for Gore owners as the RB has a great matchup in Week 16 going up against the Lions. He's still an RB1 on your fantasy football team as you head into your playoffs.

Gore practices, will start Thursday night

49ers running back Frank Gore (eye) practiced in full again on Wednesday and will make his normal start against the Bears tomorrow night.

Pyro's take: The Bears haven't been able to shut down anyone lately, so Gore is a must-start this Thursday night on your fantasy football team.

Gore to go solo on Thursday night

49ers rookie running back Glen Coffee (concussion) has already been ruled out for the contest against the Bears on Thursday night.

Pyro's take: Concussions usually take at least a full week to get over, so missing Thursday night's game isn't a shocker by any means. Frank Gore will again carry the load and be a great fantasy football RB1 this week against a poor Bears D.

Gore suffers eye contusion

49ers running back Frank Gore suffered an injury to his right eye during the game on Sunday, but will be fine and ready to start on Thursday.

Pyro's take: "Somebody poked me in the eye under the pile," Gore said. "I was all right. But I wanted to win. I'll do anything to win. I told my boys that I'm going to stay out there and fight with them and that's what I did."
That's why we love you buddy. Just keep churning it out for our fantasy football teams.

49ers: Passing team or Running team?

With strong-armed quarterback Alex Smith running the show, 49ers OC Jimmy Raye decided to air it out against the Colts on Sunday going with 36 passing plays compared to 18 rushes. Running back Frank Gore had just 13 carries on the day.

Pyro's take: The offense didn't stray too far from their conservative nature, however, as Raye still went with the common two-wide formation as opposed to a three-wide set. You can expect the Niners to even up the run-pass ratio a bit next week at home against the Titans.

Gore ready to come back from injury today

49ers running back Frank Gore is healthy and was declared active for the game against the Texans today. Gore will start in the backfield with Glen Coffee on the sidelines backing him up.

Pyro's take: Gore should be inserted back into your starting fantasy football lineup immediately if you have him. Put his handcuff Coffee back on your bench.

Gore will get the start on Sunday

According to 49ers coach Mike Singletary, running back Frank Gore (ankle) will get his first start after missing the past two games with an injury.

Pyro's take: First game back or not, Gore is a must-start this week on your fantasy team against one of the weakest rush D's in the league in Houston.

Gore comes back to full practice Wednesday

As expected, 49ers running back Frank Gore (ankle) returned to practice in full with the team on Wednesday.

Pyro's take: Gore will look to add to his stats against a Texans defense that allows pretty much whatever you want. They've given up the most rushing TDs on the year with 10 thus far. Start him on your fantasy football team regardless of the rust.

Gore to be unlimited in practice this week

49ers running back Frank Gore will go through a full practice this week and figures to start against the Texans in Week 7.

Pyro's take: Great news for both the 49ers and Gore fantasy football owners. Expect him to continue to put up RB1 numbers for your team the rest of the year.

Gore still on track for post-bye Week 7 return

49ers running back Frank Gore (ankle) went through individual and group work at practice on Wednesday and is on pace to return to game-action in Week 7.

Pyro's take: So far so good with Gore. He's been sorely missed from fantasy football lineups as he was on pace to be a top-3 RB1 this year. We'll update you throughout the next couple weeks.

Gore to take over full-time duties upon return

With 49ers running back Frank Gore expected to return to action after the Week 6 bye, RB Glen Coffee will return to his pure backup role.

Pyro's take: Coffee didn't do as well as anticipated in Gore's absence, rushing for just 3.3 yards a carry against below average rush D's. Kind of shows just how valuable Gore is to both the 49ers and your fantasy football team.

Frank Gore expected back at practice this week

49ers running back Frank Gore (ankle) is expected to be back practicing with the team during the bye week after missing the last two games.

Pyro's take: Gore is right on schedule to return against a weak Houston rush D in Week 7. If declared healthy, feel free to stick him back into your fantasy football lineup immediately.

Gore to begin running this week

49ers running back Frank Gore will begin running this week to see how his injured ankle is coming along. Gore is still targeting Week 7 for his return.

Pyro's take: Glen Coffee will once again get the start this weekend while Gore rests up that right ankle. He's a pretty good RB2 play on your fantasy football team against a relatively porous Atlanta rush D.

Gore officially ruled out for Week 4

49ers running back Frank Gore (ankle) has been officially ruled out for this week's game against the Rams.

Pyro's take: This is not a surprise, as Gore was not expected back for at least a couple of weeks, and possibly not until after their Week 6 bye.
Time to go shopping for some Coffee if he's not already on your fantasy football team.

Gore could be out three weeks with ankle strain

An MRI taken on the right foot of 49ers running back Frank Gore revealed that he has a right ankle strain and right hind foot sprain. The injuries are said to keep him out for approximately three weeks.

Pyro's take: The 49ers will turn to rookie Glen Coffee in the interim while Gore heals his busted foot. Coffee could be in line for some nice fantasy numbers too as the Niners face the Rams and Falcons over the next couple of weeks.
