Jeff Wilson Jr.
RB - SF
Week 17 Outlook
The San Francisco 49ers have re-signed restricted free agent RB Jeff Wilson Jr. to a one-year deal.
Wilson appeared in 12 games this season for the 49ers, leading all running backs with 733 total yards and 10 touchdowns. When given the opportunity to shoulder the load, Wilson performed admirably, particularly down the stretch. He saw 25 red zone carries this season compared to just 11 (in 8 games) for backfield teammate Raheem Mostert. With Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon both likely gone, the 49ers could choose to roll with Mostert and Wilson in tandem in 2021, but don’t be surprised if Wilson ends up leading the team in rushing again.
Jeff Wilson Jr. rushed 20 times for 76 yards and a touchdown while adding three receptions for 12 yards and a touchdown through the air during the 49ers loss to the Seahawks in Week 17.
Wilson was a legitimate league winner down the stretch due to all of the injuries on the 49ers roster. It will be very interesting to see what role he plays in this offense next season but his play as of late has certainly earned him a larger role.
Jeff Wilson Jr. rushed 22 times for 183 yards and hauled in 1-of-2 targets for 21 yards and a score during the 49ers 20-12 win over the Cardinals in Week 16.
Wilson was simply amazing in this one, racking up chunk gain after chunk gain. The Cardinals defense simply had no answer for him as he went for over 200 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown despite exiting in the first half to be evaluated for a concussion. He was the distant leader in this backfield as the next closest running back handled two carries. With Raheem Mostert (ankle) shutdown for the rest of the season, Wilson was certainly a league winner in this one and that shouldn't change against the Seahawks in Week 17.
Jeff Wilson Jr. rushed 16 times for 60 yards and a touchdown during the 49ers' 33-41 loss to the Cowboys in Week 15.
Wilson Jr. operated behind Raheem Mostert, but was thrust into a feature role when the latter was forced from the game with an ankle injury. Wilson did a decent job against the Cowboys bottom-barrel defense, though he failed to bring in any of his four targets in the passing game. If Mostert is forced to miss Week 16, however, Wilson would be considered a volume-based RB2, though it's possible Kyle Shanahan gives Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon increased run.
Jeff Wilson Jr. rushed 11 times for 31 yards and a touchdown while hauling in 1-of-3 targets for an additional 13 yards during the 49ers' 15-23 loss to the WFT in Week 14.
Wilson Jr. salvaged his fantasy day with a one-yard score early in the game but couldn't do anything else with the rest of his touches. Raheem Mostert (16 touches) briefly left the game in the first half to be checked for a concussion but quickly returned to his lead back duties. If anything, Wilson Jr. is clearly ahead of Tevin Coleman and Jerrick McKinnon in the pecking order and would be a plug and play RB2 if something were to happen to Mostert. He is also seeing enough workload to warrant roster status throughout the playoffs if you can afford to stash him on your bench. A Week 15 date against a poor Cowboys defense should provide enough floor for both Wilson Jr. and Mostert to be fantasy relevant options.
