Recent News’s Joe Fann expects Kendall Gaskins to get red-zone carries.
Gaskins played 29 snaps after Reggie Bush and Mike Davis went down last week. He’s been in OC Geep Chryst’s system all year and should lead the 49ers’ Week 9 backfield. Recently-signed Pierre Thomas will likely be limited to pass-down work. Nov 7 - 5:21 PM

CSN Bay Area considers Kendall Gaskins ahead of Pierre Thomas.

The 49ers are expected to have a Week 9 committee, but Gaskins should get the first chance at carries. Thomas is a 30-year-old back that hasn’t played since 2014, and Shaun Draughn is a career special teamer. Gaskins is the favorite for early-down/red-zone work, but isn’t more than a desperation RB4.

The Sacramento Bee's Matt Barrows guesses the 49ers will employ a "three-headed monster" of Kendall Gaskins, Pierre Thomas, and Shaun Draughn at running back in Week 9 against the Falcons.

Our popcorn is ready.

Kendall Gaskins rushed five times for six yards in the 49ers' Week 8 loss to the Rams.

Carlos Hyde (foot) was ruled out over the weekend, and Gaskins got the promotion from the practice squad. After Reggie Bush tore his ACL in the first quarter and rookie Mike Davis hurt his hand in the third quarter, Gaskins was the only running back left. If Gaskins gets the starting nod in Week 9 against the Falcons, he still won't be a recommended fantasy option.
Nov 1 - 6:08 PM

49ers signed RB Kendall Gaskins, TE Xavier Grimble, WR Lance Lewis, OT Chris Martin and DT Garrison Smith to reserve/future contracts.

A 2013 undrafted free agent, Gaskins has yet to appear in a regular-season game. He averaged 3.6 yards on 29 preseason carries in 2014.
