Fantasy Impact:

Wilson was the 49ers' leading rusher in 2020, carrying 126 times for 600 yards and seven touchdowns in 11 games. If he returns by November as Shanahan expects, it will decrease the value held by Elijah Mitchell, Trey Sermon, and JaMycal Hasty. Wilson is a great addition off of fantasy waiver wires if he remains available in leagues, particularly when running back depth becomes needed for the latter half of the fantasy season.
