RB - Green Bay Packers
Emanuel Wilson (shoulder) was designated to return from injured reserve on Wednesday. He practiced in a limited capacity.
Wilson is allowed to practice for the next 21 days without being officially activated from injured reserve. By the end of that 21-day window, the Packers must decide whether to activate him or shut him down for the season. While the 24-year-old contributed just 108 yards over seven games prior to his injury, he could have a larger role upon his return if Aaron Jones (finger, knee) or AJ Dillon (thumb) is unable to suit up. With that said, Wilson is off the fantasy radar for the time being.
Emanuel Wilson (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve by the Green Bay Packers Wednesday.
Wilson will now miss at least the next four games after suffering the shoulder injury in last Sunday’s win over the Los Angeles Chargers. With starting running back (knee) also ruled out ahead of Thursday’s matchup against the Detroit Lions, the Packers will be forced into a backfield mix of A.J. Dillon, James Robinson, and Patrick Taylor against a stout Detroit rushing defense.
Emanuel Wilson (shoulder) was listed as a non-participant in the Packers' practice estimation on Monday.
The Packers didn't hold an official practice, but if they did, Wilson likely wouldn't have been available. WIth Wilson and Aaron Jones (knee) suffering significant injuries, Green Bay finds itself quite weak at running back all of a sudden. Should the two backs not play on Thursday, A.J. Dillon would handle the bulk of backfield opportunities while James Robinson and Patrick Taylor also get involved.
Packers RB Emanuel Wilson (shoulder) has officially been ruled out for the remainder of the game Sunday.
Wilson and fellow RB Aaron Jones have both left Sunday’s game with injuries and will not return. RB AJ Dillon will see the snaps at running back the rest of the way as the last healthy running back active.
In Week 2, Emanuel Wilson of the Green Bay Packers found himself more like a pebble in the rushing river than the roaring waterfall fantasy managers were hoping for.
The 24-year-old running back managed a meager 5 yards on 3 carries, failing to find the end zone or even a single target in the passing game. The Packers' loss to the Falcons, a nail-biting 25-24, saw Wilson's contributions as minimal at best. His season stats mirror his Week 2 performance, with the same 5 yards on 3 carries and zero touchdowns or receptions. Wilson's fantasy value is looking as dry as a desert. Next week, the Packers face the New Orleans Saints, and fantasy managers will be hoping for a monsoon of points from Wilson. But based on his play-by-play data, it seems like Wilson is more likely to be tackled by a linebacker than break out for a big gain.
