Frank Gore- Top 10 RB?

Postby Double Play Ball » Sun Aug 20, 2006 11:43 am

I really think Frank Gore could end up being a top 10 RB this year. He was a very very good college RB, and averaged nearly 5 yds per carry last season. With Barlow struggling, i look for Gore to get at least 85 percent of the carries. The O-line in SF is actually ok, compared to the rest of the team. With the addition of Vernon DAvis and Antonio Bryant in the passi g game, teams will have to back offf the line abit, and guard them. I truly think Frank Gore could be a top 10-15 RB this year. Anyonelse with me on this?

It could happen, but not as likely as 15 other RBs making the top 15.

I do think Gore will be a productive fantasy RB this season. I worry about him staying healthy, bad knees in college methinks, Barlow also could steal from him. And the 9ers are going to put up some stinker games where they will abandon the run out of necessity.

I think, therefore I am. I think fantasy, therefore I am unreal?

Gore has sleeper written all over him but top ten is a stretch probably.

With SF's sorry passing game & them trailing in most games his value will be down.

I'm starting to see him climb out of the 8th and 9th rounds into the 6th and 7th rounds where it's just about as early as I want to take him. He did post some nice #'s against Chicago last week. I'm looking forward to seeing him tonight.

There was definitely a Jets premium built in prior to the Barlow news. He'd be the #1 there if it was him that was dealt, as had been talked about for a few days.
