I've said it earlier in the thread...Gore is a good running back. But he'll be pushing it on SF to finish in the top-10. He may make it, he may not, but he's not a guaranteed top-10 back even if he stays healthy (which is another big question mark). If SF gets down by too much they're going to have to pass and while Gore's a good pass catching rb I'd imagine he'd be the outlet as opposed to the primary target. Bryant, Battle, Davis and others will get their's as well so unless the SF defense finds a way to stop the other teams Gore won't be running the football enough to stay in the top-10 consistantly.
You do realize that Gore has nearly 100 yards receiving in 2 games right? That he has already amassed 300 yards and 3 TDs in just two games right? Do you realize what you just gave away for Tatum Bell and peanuts? Frank Gore is the NUMBER TWO RB in all of fantasy football right now behind Ladanian Tomlinson. "He'll be pushing it to finish top-10"
This guy is SF's primary option in every way shape and form. He has as many catches as their #1 WR right now. He is carrying the ball on 95% of the designed running plays right now. You argue how more and more NFL teams turn to RBBC nowadays, yet you basically give away one of the few guys that not only carries the bulk of the load, he carries the ENTIRE load. The only major drawback to Gore that I see, is the potential for injury just because he is touching the ball so damn much.
Seems to me like you are playing for next year because you don't wanna believe in what Gore is doing and/or can do in the future. And all to put Maroney in your lineup (about 6 games prematurely). Maroney + Gore coulda carried you to the title man...
