Frank Gore Injury Update: Still a strong fantasy play vs. Rams

Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE

How confident should you be in starting Frank Gore?

Frank Gore (hand) was at practice all week and he is listed as probable to face the Rams. He's expected to start against a weak run D in a late-afternoon start.

The Miami product is averaging a career-high 5.5 yards per carry this season with four touchdowns. He also has four TDs on the ground in the Niner's run-heavy O.

Fantasy Impact: Sometimes it's not fun to have a player that's starting in a late game, but there's nothing to worry about here with Gore. He should be in all lineups.

Kendall Hunter would see an uptick in value should something happen to Gore. The 49ers rank first in the league in rushing yards per game as well as yards per carry -- thanks largely to Gore's career-high 5.5 this year.
