Gore Ranked Fifth-Best Fantasy Player in 2010

Posted by Taylor Price on July 23, 2010 – 4:02 PM

According to the fantasy football experts at NFL.com, only four players rank higher on their 2010 rankings than 49ers Pro Bowl running back Frank Gore.

The six-year pro recorded his fourth consecutive 1,000-yard season (1,120 yards) despite missing two games in 2009 , and that impressed the staff enough to put him behind a host of other talented runners in Chris Johnson, Adrian Peterson, Maurice Jones-Drew and Ray Rice.

An improved 49ers offensive attack and the selection of two offensive linemen in the first round were also likely factored into their decision.

Knowing how competitive Gore is, the ranking will only serve as motivation for the fourth leading rusher on the 49ers all-time rushing list (5,561 yards).

But good news for Gore, he’s the highest-ranked Miami Hurricane on this year’s list of rankings, ahead of many from his alma mater like, Houston Texans wide receiver Andre Johnson (No. 9), Indianapolis Colts wide receiver Reggie Wayne (No. 20), Washington Redskins running back Clinton Portis (No. 76) and Baltimore Ravens running back Willis McGahee (No. 119).

For those wondering about the rankings of other key members of the 49ers, they are as follows: tight end Vernon Davis (No. 46), wide receiver Michael Crabtree (No. 55), quarterback Alex Smith (No. 117), 49ers defense (No. 176) and wide receiver Josh Morgan (No. 193).

    Frank Gore reps what has long been lost in the NFL. Class and passion for the game. Same accolade can be given to P. Willis and Alex Smith (pay cut) and hopefully the same will be said about Crabtree in a few years. Gore is da man though, no doubt…he makes this show tick and Singletary better not forget it! What Gore really needs is a ring because he is a pure champion…END IT

    Solid ranking for Gore. He always seems to miss time due to injuries, but always brief periods. If he plays 16 games, i expect about 1300rush yards and 10td, and always a recieving threat as well, should get around 40 receptions….In a ppr leauge, Gore is an outstanding pickup
