2020 Fantasy Outlook
Wilson's 2019 story had a similar opening to that of his rookie 2018 season when he began the year on the 49ers' practice squad before being promoted to replace an injured player. The 24-year-old received fewer touches this go-around - 30 touches over 10 contests - but he emerged as a trusted goal-line back, hitting pay dirt four times from in close in his first two games following activation. The North Texas product saw his role reduced drastically once Tevin Coleman returned and Raheem Mostert exploded onto the scene. With both backs still under contract and Jerick McKinnon at the top of the depth chart, Wilson's role in San Francisco is uncertain now that he can no longer be stashed on the practice squad.

Makes good on Week 3 opportunity

September 27, 2020
Wilson rushed 12 times for 15 yards and a touchdown and brought in all three targets for 54 yards and another score in the 49ers' 36-9 win over the Giants on Sunday.
ANALYSIS
Wilson was slated to complement Jerick McKinnon with both Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman sidelined by knee sprains, and although the third-year back found running room at a premium, he still pounded his way into the end zone from two yards out with 3:35 remaining. Earlier in the fourth quarter, the versatile Wilson also logged a 19-yard scoring grab, making it a rewarding day for fantasy managers who plucked him off the wire this past week or took a shot on him as a DFS punt play. It's worth noting Wilson may be much less of a long shot in a Week 4 Sunday night matchup against the Eagles, considering McKinnon emerged from Sunday's win with a rib injury, Coleman is on injured reserve for at least two more games and Mostert may not be ready to return.

2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 49ers backfield sustained its fair share of injuries last season, which allowed an undrafted rookie off the practice squad to earn some reps as a starter. Wilson proved to be capable in the six games (three starts) for which he was active, rushing for 266 yards (4.0 YPC) and gaining 92 receiving yards on 12 receptions. The 23-year-old will find it hard to crack the active roster in 2019, as the addition of Tevin Coleman, return of Jerick McKinnon and presence of Matt Breida and special-teams ace Raheem Mostert could leave Wilson on the outside looking in.
