2014 Outlook: Over the Hill (decreased production)Last updated on Jul-05-2014 by Brad Kruse
FAREWELL TOUR: We all know the end is coming soon. The question is when? Last year, Gore posted a career-worst 4.1 yards per carry. He also had his lowest reception total (16) since his rookie year (he only started one game). San Francisco has a lot of talent at running back ready to replace Gore. This feels like his last season as the team's leading ball-carrier. Over the last three years, surprisingly, the carries by San Francisco running backs not named Frank Gore have gone down from 145 to 130 to 125. Gore's carries have remained fairly high at 282, 259 and 276. Last year, Gore recorded 197 fantasy points in PPR. That was still a RB2 starter-quality season. At 31 years old, expectations should be low. He must face Seattle, Arizona and St. Louis each twice. All of these teams have a tough defense.
Editor's note: In our high-stakes ADP rankings, Gore is the RB28, coming off the board at pick No. 77. This isn't exactly a ringing endorsement from those fantasy players who put the big bucks on the line and have the most riding on their team's success. Gore should be a capable flex; however that might be his ceiling.

|8.04||#5 World Ranked - Gore in the 8th round seems like a good value but I hated this pick as soon as I made it. Gore may have one solid season left as a bye week/flex player, but I should have gone with a different RB here.|
