No matter that opponents are stacking extra defenders next to the line of scrimmage. The San Francisco 49ers are determined to run the football successfully, a key element of their offense that has been missing through the first two weeks of the season.
But offensive coordinator Greg Roman doesn't believe in forcing the issue.
Roman is taking a patient approach with a running attack that ranked fourth in the NFL last season but has struggled so far this year to get Frank Gore and the team's other running backs untracked.
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has rushed for 28 more yards than the rest of his teammates combined, but the Niners expect to start getting more conventional results on the ground this week when they host the Indianapolis Colts and the NFL's 29th-ranked run defense.

We all know what happened last week when the San Francisco 49ers faced the Seahawks. They were worn out and beat down, not by Russell Wilson but a power running attack. Over the past couple years Marshawn Lynch owns the Niners. He has 3 one hundred yard games and he carves up the Niners defense […]
On Wednesday, San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said the Seattle Seahawks "got away with a lot of things on defense" in reference to San Francisco's 29-3 defeat in Seattle on Sunday. On Thursday, the always boisterous Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman stepped to the podium during his weekly media session to address to Kaepernick's comments, and...

Things got a little rowdy up in the nosebleeds at CenturyLink Field on Sunday, especially after cornerback Richard Sherman scaled Mt. (Vernon) Davis, adding one of the final, demoralizing nails into Colin Kaepernick’s coffin. You’ve probably seen the interception already, so we’ve cued the video to the incident in the stands.

The Seattle Seahawks trashed the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday. On Wednesday 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick said that the Seahawks got away with some things on defense.
Of course those comments were not going to be ignored by Seahawks corner Richard Sherman.
“We got away with three picks, two fumbles, five turnovers,” Sherman said in a media session on Thursday. “We got...

Last week: 2
No shame in losing to the Seahawks in Seattle. No one won there last season and I don’t think anyone is winning there this season, including playoffs. Frank Gore’s slow start has to be concerning, however. He’s rushed for just 60 yards on 30 carries thus far this season. Ordinarily, it’s important not to overreact to 2 games, but Gore is a 30-year-old running...
Each week, I’ll take a look at some of the top fantasy players that have been struggling lately. This week, we’re talking about Frank Gore and Maurice Jones-Drew among others. I’ll go beyond the numbers to let you know why they are struggling, what they need to improve on and what the chances are your fantasy star picks up his play in the coming weeks.
The San Francisco 49ers’ aren’t in the same condition they were last week health-wise. Their division-battle with the Seattle Seahawks clearly took its toll on the entire roster as several new players find themselves on San Francisco’s injury report in week 3, according to their official team web site. Among the more notable names on the list is star tight end Vernon Davis...

Remember DeMarco’s first start in the NFL? He went for 253 yards on the ground against the same team that he gets this week. Not that I am expecting anything like that, but Murray should be getting more touches this week and fantasy stats are coming.

Goodbye, Colin Kaepernick. Hello, Guiness.
The Seattle Seahawks turned a grind-it-out battle into a blowout in the second half, completely dismantling the San Francisco offense in a 29-3 victory.

Week 2 in the books. If you’re 2-0, good for you. If you’re 0-2, there’s still time. Don’t lose hope. The success of a Fantasy Football season is made or broken by the addition of players during the season. There’s not much on the waiver wire so you may have to make a trade.
