Stud of the Week (Frank Gore)

Stud of the Week
Frank Gore, 49ers (16 carries, 87 yards, 2 TDs, 1 lost fumble; 6 catches, 83 yards): Not the name you'd expect to see for the first week, eh? With all the multi-threat backs around, Gore piled up yards left and right and scored twice. He was zooming up the fantasy charts after Kevan Barlow was dealt to the Jets, and he showed exactly why. It helped that he was playing the Cards, but get your stats any way you can. Also, Alex Smith is already vastly improved from his rookie years, which means there could be more of these games on the horizon.
