RB Brian Westbrook Signs With 49ers | 2010 Fantasy Football Impact

It took Brian Westbrook a long time to finally decide on a team to play for, but finally he has signed on with the 49ers. In the end, I just could believe Westbrook would go to the Rams even though reports had him rumored to go there throughout the offseason.

With this move Westbrook has blown up my hopes for rookie Anthony Dixon to be the teams No.2 running back but that is alright.

Free Falling

The former Eagle running back has fallen hard in the fantasy world as he isn’t even going to be a starting tailback in the NFL. Now in his thirties, Westbrook’s injuries and concessions have taken a large toll, but he still has skills to help a football team.

This was a very good move on the part of the 49ers, and they have a much better chance to win the division with Westbrook helping out on offense.

Fantasy Football Impact

Look for Frank Gore to be the main runner in this offense as Westbrook will be the third down back and spot him throughout the game. This move shouldn’t hurt Gore’s fantasy value but some fantasy owners will probably dope him down a peg for it.

Westbrook now becomes a solid hand cuff back for fantasy owners who select Gore as he has a history of injuries.
