49ers | Brian Westbrook agrees to terms

The San Francisco 49ers have agreed to terms with unrestricted free-agent RB Brian Westbrook (Eagles) on a one-year deal, a source told Matt Barrows, of the Sacramento Bee. Financial terms were not disclosed.

Fantasy Tip: This signing is curious after rookie running back Anthony Dixon rushed for 100 yards (4.8 per carry), scored once on the ground and added three receptions for 22 yards in his first preseason game. Starter Frank Gore is a strong receiver and could lose touches to Westbrook. While we don't know the specific nature of how Westy will be utilized, common sense says San Francisco play to his strengths as a pass catcher. Westbrook is a late-round fantasy addition with better value in point-per-reception leagues.
