San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (ankle) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 28.
Huddle Up: The ankle issue is appearing to limit Gore in games of late as well as the RB only has a combined 90 scrimmage yards on 29 touches over the Niners' last 2 games and hasn't scored 3 straight contests. Gore is a tough player to bench, but definitely factor in his struggles when weighing your RB options now that the bye weeks are over.

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore rushed for 153 yards and a TD on 20 carries Thursday, Sept. 26 as the San Francisco 49ers defeated the St. Louis Rams, 35- 11.
Huddle Up: Not only was it a season high for Gore, but his yardage total eclipsed the combined total (142) from his first 3 games by 11 yards -- much to the delight of those who started Gore with hopes of a fast Week 4 fantasy start. It could've been a lot better, though, as backps Anthony Dixon and Kendall Hunter ran for scores in the second half rotating in for Gore, who had already compiled 107 yards at the break.

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore was angry with head coach Jim Harbaugh after the Week 3 game against the Indianapolis Colts. He reportedly had words with Harbaugh near the end of the game. Gore managed just four touches in the second half.
Huddle Up: The entire 49ers squad looked discombobulated Sunday; whether it had anything to do with the Aldon Smith situation is unclear, but San Francisco was definitely a shell of the team we saw in last year's Super Bowl--and even in Week 1 of this year. We'll see what transpires as Harbaugh tries to get the club back on track, specifically as it relates to Gore and the ground game.

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore has his snaps regulated last season, as he finally accepted he is more valuable to the team in the long term if he gives up a few carries to his backups. He is still expected to be capable of at least 1,200 rushing yards, but RBs LaMichael James and Kendall Hunter are expected to playing larger roles in the offense.
Huddle Up: In 2012, Gore still had 258 rushes and 286 total touches -- his second-highest total since 2007 -- but Gore hit the not-so-magical 30-year-old milestone in May, and James and Hunter simply are too talented not to be involved regularly.

Kansas City Chiefs RB Jamaal Charles said he excited the team is going to use the pistol offense in 2013, an offense he is familiar with after running it in the 2008 season. 'I ran it my rookie year and I love it,' Charles said on NFL Network's 'NFL AM' on Thursday. 'I ain't never been around no offense that's about to be explosive and about to put me in space and making me make plays. I see Frank Gore had success with (the pistol) with the (San Francisco) 49ers. If he can have success, I hope I can have success as well.'
Huddle Up: The pistol is a new wrinkle for Charles and Andy Reid, but given the RB's proven skills and the coach's track record with productive fantasy RBs, Charles's stock would appear to be on the upswing.

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore was on the elliptical machine on the sidelines Tuesday, May 28, but head coach Jim Harbaugh wouldn't disclose the ailment.
Huddle Up: It's far too early for concern. Expect Gore to see a significantly reduced practice schedule as the Niners try to keep him fresh for the regular (and post) season. That might mean a few more touches for Kendall Hunter and/or LaMichael James, so set your fantasy draft boards accordingly.

San Francisco 49ers general manager Trent Baalke said he believes in using multiple running backs that can do different things on offense. "I'm a big believer -- we are big believers -- in a three-headed approach," Baalke said. "In other words, having a group of backs that bring to the table something a little bit different than the other one so you can do a lot of different things. But also having those backs be able to do enough things the same so you don't become so predictable on game day." RBs Frank Gore, Kendall Hunter and LaMichael James likely will see playing time this season.
Huddle Up: Baalke's comments are the sharp pin deflating Gore's fantasy value; plan accordingly.

The San Francisco 49ers were the first team in Super Bowl history to have a 300-yard passer, a 100-yard rusher and two 100-yard receivers in the game. QB Colin Kaepernick threw for 302 yards, RB Frank Gore rushed for 100 yards, WR Michael Crabtree recorded 109 receiving yards and TE Vernon Davis recorded 104 receiving yards.
Huddle Up: Small consolation to the Niners, but great news for fantasy players who had any of the San Francisco studs going in the Super Bowl. It's also a positive sign going forward that the 49er offense can be both diverse and productive.

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore was fined $10,500 for wearing his socks too low in the NFC Championship game.
Huddle Up: Thankfully we have the NFL's dress code police to protect us from heinous violations like this. What next, shirt not tucked in? Wearing white after Labor Day?

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore posted his first 100-yard rushing game during the playoffs against the Green Bay Packers in the team's NFC Divisional Round playoff win. He had 23 carries for 119 yards rushing with one touchdown. Gore also chipped in 48 yards receiving on two receptions.
Huddle Up: Gore isn't getting any younger, but there's no denying that RBs can prosper playing in the same backfield with rushing QBs as opposing defenses often have to pick their poison.

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (knee) was listed a full participant in practice Friday, Dec. 28, and he is probable for the Week 17 game against the Arizona Cardinals.
Huddle Up: Gore and his fantasy owners are looking for a bounce-back game in the finale after the RB hit season lows in carries (6) and yards (28) in Week 16's blowout loss to the Seahawks.

San Francisco 49ers RB Frank Gore (wrist) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 20.
Huddle Up: Facing the Seahawks' defense on the road is a tall task, but the same can be said in Seattle going up against Gore, who rumbled for a season-high 182 total yards in the teams' first meeting in Week 7.
