Frank Gore: Recapping Gore's Week 12 Fantasy Performance

RotoWireContributor November 26, 2013

Gore carried the ball 13 times for 31 yards and caught one pass for three yards against the Redskins on Monday. While the Redskins focused on stopping Gore in this one, his level of participation was low in comparison to his usual workload. But that's what happens when an offense faces a very weak secondary -- the passing attack explodes and the ground game takes a seat.
Despite the fact that Gore hasn't seen more than 16 carries in any of the three games since the bye week, he remains an integral part of his team's offense and their game plan. But at 30-years-old, if the team can get away with lightening his load and still win, then they're going to do just that. Gore's importance to the team is huge and keeping him fresh for the playoffs will be, much to the chagrin of his fantasy owners, a priority down the stretch. He'll still see plenty of work, but if they can afford to rest him, they will.
