Frank Gore Out Until Week 7

Frank Gore’s MRI on his injured ankle revealed that the star Running Back has an ankle strain. The injury will sideline Gore for three weeks. Fortunately for San Francisco and Gore fantasy owners, the 49ers have a bye in Week 6.
Glen Coffee will replace Gore in the starting lineup as they face St. Louis this week and Atlanta the following week. Coffee struggled filling in for Gore this week, but that’s typical of most RBs that play the Vikings. It’s too bad the matchups weren’t reversed as the Falcons present more of a challenge. It would be nice to see Coffee have a game under his belt before rolling the dice on him in a fantasy lineup. However, this week’s game against the Rams may be too juicy to resist if you don’t have a decent alternative.
How do you think Coffee will do this week? Are you considering playing Coffee this week? If you want to run a lineup question by me, feel free to leave one in the comments.
