Jeff Wilson Jr. (knee) had a 'flare up' during Sunday's loss

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. had a "flare-up" on his surgically repaired knee during Sunday's loss to the Seahawks, per Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area.

Fantasy Impact

Head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters that it has happened before and that it usually bothers Wilson Jr. for a few days before he can get right. This partially explains why Wilson Jr. was a no-show during Sunday's loss against the Seahawks and it makes him questionable heading into next Sunday's game against the Bengals. Starting running back Elijah Mitchell (head) is also in the concussion protocol, which leaves JaMycal Hasty as the only healthy running back on the roster for now.

Jeff Wilson Jr. totals 58 yards in Week 11

Jeff Wilson Jr. rushed 19 times for 50 yards and caught an eight-yard reception in Week 11 against the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact

It wasn't the monster performance that fantasy managers were likely hoping for. However, it's worth noting that Wilson should've had an easy touchdown reception, but Jimmy Garoppolo missed him badly. Trey Sermon also played more than expected in this one, but the 49ers were winning throughout. Wilson's fantasy value moving forward is tied to Elijah Mitchell's health.

Jeff Wilson Jr. picks up 28 yards on the ground

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. rushed 10 times for 28 yards in a 31-10 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact

Wilson Jr. was making his season debut after undergoing knee surgery in the offseason. He showed some juice early in the game but received the majority of his carries while the Niners were in clock-killing mode and the Rams knew it was coming. He should continue to see work as a change-of-pace runner behind Elijah Mitchell but is nothing more than a stash at the moment.

Jeff Wilson (knee) officially active for Week 9

49ers running back Jeff Wilson is officially active for Week 9 against the Cardinals.

Fantasy Impact

Wilson was activated from the PUP list on Saturday after missing the first eight weeks of the season with a knee injury. The 25-year-old has drawn the praise of general manager John Lynch as of late, but it’s still unclear what type of role he’ll have on Sunday. Wilson and JaMycal Hasty figure to compete for touches behind Elijah Mitchell.

Jeff Wilson Jr. (knee) activated off PUP list

The 49ers activated RB Jeff Wilson Jr. (knee) off the PUP list.

Fantasy Impact

It's unclear what this means for the status of Elijah Mitchell (ribs). The 49ers have several RBs on their roster now, including Wilson, Mitchell, Trey Sermon, JaMycal Hasty, and Trenton Cannon. One or two of them will likely be inactive in Week 9 against the Cardinals.
