San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore had a strong game against the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. Gore's big day helped lift the 49ers to a 19-17 victory, preventing the Seahawks from clinching the division and keeping San Francisco in the playoff race.
Gore carried the ball 17 times for 110 yards, but didn't manage to find the end zone. He also had a long of 51 yards, and a per-carry average of 6.5 yards. Gore didn't have his best day statistically, but the 49ers certainly would have come up short if he'd put up anything less than what he did.
The big day was significant, as Gore hasn't rushed for 100 yards in a game since Oct. 13 against the Arizona Cardinals. Gore had rushing totals of 42, 31, and 48 yards over the previous three games.
Fantasy Impact: With Sunday's game, Gore improved to 931 yards off of 220 carries with eight touchdowns on the season. He's one of the best running backs in the league and is still producing despite all the wear and tear. Being able to put up those yards against the Seahawks this late in the season is huge for fantasy owners depending on him in the final weeks.
