Frank Gore carries 49ers against Seahawks, scores big for fantasy owners

Ezra Shaw

Frank Gore accounted for 58 percent of San Francisco's offense in Week 7. We break down the fantasy implications.

Frank Gore didn't care about Seattle giving up just 70 yards rushing per game heading into Thursday night's matchup, as he ran all over the place in Week 7. San Francisco's No. 1 back carried the ball 16 times for 131 yards, averaging a ridiculous 8.2 yards per carry.

He also caught five passes for 51 yards. Gore became the first running back this season to break 100-yards against the Seahawks.

Fantasy Impact: This was one of the most impressive performances we've seen from Gore in quite some time. He didn't find the end zone, but he shattered Seattle's average rush yards allowed per game and proved the 49ers can continue to rely on him in tough matchups.

Gore was spotted heading to the locker room early, which may have been attributed to a hit he took in the back in the second quarter. It doesn't look like it's anything to worry about, though. Be sure to at least keep an eye on this situation. Also be sure to continue starting Gore against every team he faces.
