Jeff Wilson Jr. being traded to Miami

The San Francisco 49ers are trading RB Jeff Wilson Jr. to the Miami Dolphins for a fifth-round pick. (Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact:

After having just dealt Chase Edmonds to Denver in the Bradley Chubb deal, the Dolphins are presumably bringing Wilson to be Raheem Mostert's backup. Wilson took over starting RB duties in San Francisco following Elijah Mitchell's injury but became expendable with the acquisition of Christian McCaffrey. From a fantasy perspective, those rostering Wilson should hold until we see how he will be used in Miami. The 49ers have their bye in Week 9, and Mitchell could return as early as Week 10 against the Chargers. If he's healthy, he likely leapfrogs Jordan Mason and Tyrion Davis-Price as the handcuff to McCaffrey.
