Dixon took to his new role as the starting fullback like a champ last week clearing all sorts of holes and opening up running room for Frank Gore who rumbled his way to 97 yards and a touchdown against the Falcons. Unfortunately for fantasy owners, Dixon doesn't hold any value just yet.
The 49ers often run a pass play to the fullback, or at least they did when it was Bruce Miller, so there is a chance that Dixon catches a pass or two and possibly even finds the end zone. You can't quite count on that though, even in the deepest of leagues, but it could be something to watch if you play in a deep fantasy league that goes through the NFL playoffs.
