News: Gore said that he is not ready to give up his role as the top option in the 49ers' backfield, CSN Bay Area reports. Impact: Gore is entering his 10th season as a featured back and there are questions regarding his ability to continue to perform at a high level. The 49ers drafted a pair of running backs - Marcus Lattimore (3rd round, 2013) and Carlos Hyde (2nd round, 2014) - preparing for Gore's eventual decline. But it sounds like Gore has no plans of relinquishing his role as top dog quite yet. History has shown that running backs usually decline once they hit the age of 30, but Gore disproved that myth last season. His 276 carries in 2013 was the third-largest workload of his career. But with three capable running backs behind him this season, it would be hard to imagine the 49ers not lightening the 31-year-old's workload. Gore will still have fantasy value heading into 2014, but in all likelihood it will be as a flex option rather than the RB1 or RB2 he has been for most of his career.(RotoWire, )
