Frank Gore posts mediocre game on Monday Night Football

San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore still pounds the football - Rob Carr

San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore carried the ball thirteen times for 31 yards on Monday Night Football in the Week 12 win over the Washington Redskins. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore rushed thirteen times for 31 yards against the Washington Redskins in the Week 12 win over the Washington Redskins. Gore did not have an impact in the passing game, and managed to average only 2.4 yards per carry against a Washington defense that is ranked eighteenth in the league against the run. On the year, Gore has rushed for 779 yards and seven touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: Washington's defense is giving up the second most fantasy points to running backs so Gore's performance is somewhat troubling. Gore is still a must start and he is going to continue to get the bulk of the carries but the schedule gets tougher from here. The 49ers will face the St. Louis Rams in Week 13. The Rams have a good defense but they are giving up the sixth most fantasy points to running backs.
