According to ESPN's John Clayton, 49ers running back Frank Gore could see 50 fewer carries in 2014 than he did last year.Fantasy Spin:Earlier this month, ESPN NFC West blogger Bill Williamson projected Gore to get 220 carries, 56 fewer than the 276 he had last season. Gore no longer contributes in the passing game so he'll be no more than a low-end RB2 with just 220 carries.

What kind of reduction will we see in Frank Gore's 2014 workload?

What kind of reduction will we see in Frank Gore's 2014 workload?

ESPN reporters think Gore will be somewhere in the 220 carry range in 2014. Can we really come up with that kind of number so easily? One of the biggest position competitions will be at running back. Frank Gore is more or less entrenched as the starter, but there is some serious quality behind him in the form of Kendall Hunter, Marcus Lattimore, Carlos Hyde, and LaMichael James. I still think James ends up focused on his return work, but he is still an option at running back. Frank Gore is entering the final year of his contract, and odds are pretty good the 49ers will look to move on from...

49ers Want To Keep Gore Fresh, Plan To Decrease Carry Count

ESPN.com's 49ers blogger Bill Williamson projects Frank Gore will get 220 carries in 2014.Fantasy Spin:That would be a decrease of 56 carries from last season. If he receives just 220 carries, Gore would have to increase his ypc from 4.1 to 4.6 to rush for 1,000 yards for the eighth time in the last nine years. San Francisco drafted Carlos Hyde in the second round this year and has stashed Marcus Lattimore since last year while he recovered from a serious knee injury. Because Gore no longer contributes in the passing game -- he had 51 catches per season from 2006-2010 but 61 catches total in...

Time to catch up on a few more links. And we'll start with this analysis of the rushing stats of each team in 2013 from FootballPerspective.com. As you can see, Seattle's rushing game --- by this metric --- doesn't rank as highly as might be expected by those who would simply look at total rushing yards, where the Seahawks were fourth, at 2,188. By FootballPerspective's adjusted yards per carry metric, Seattle ranked only 13th last season (which is in line with its overall ranking of 12th in the more-familar yards per carry used by the NFL --- the Seahawks averaged 4.3). One of the obvious...
