Make a move for Brian Westbrook!
The complete rundown of prospects for this week’s “Waiver Wire Hot List” will be posted later this afternoon, but there was a big injury in the Monday night game that moves one name to the top of the list.
San Francisco running back Brian Westbrook should be your No. 1 priority.
Why? Because starter Frank Gore went down with a fractured hip in the 49ers’ 27-6 win at Arizona last night and has been lost for the season.
Gore owners can go ahead and drop him from the roster.
Back to B-West, the former Philadelphia Eagle picked up 136 rushing yards and a touchdown Monday night on just 23 carries (5.9 YPC). Be advised that he will likely lose some goal line touches to rookie Anthony Dixon (Mississippi State), but Westbrook looks to be a pretty strong fantasy option moving forward.
San Francisco’s remaining schedule: at Green Bay, vs. Seattle, at San Diego, at St. Louis, vs. Arizona
