Albert Wilson (WR, MIA) - Week 7 Waiver Wire Pickups


BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 2% of Leagues

ANALYSIS: It is tough to make a case for Albert Wilson, but here I am. It is tough first because I was a true believer of Wilson’s potential entering the year--yes, I had him as one of my go-to sleepers in almost every draft--and second, because five games have been enough to teach me to avoid Miami’s players no matter what.

After playing only six snaps in the season opener, Wilson missed four weeks (three due to injury, another one on Miami’s bye in Week 5), and finally made it back to the field this past weekend. His ultra-limited sample from Week 1 (13 yards on two receptions) was pretty much the same in Week 6, although on higher volume (15 yards on five-for-six receptions). His two games this year finished with just 3.4 and 6.5 fantasy points.

Although rostering any Dolphin is a gamble as big as they get, I’m still trusting Wilson for the rest of the season. Yes, there are some tough contests ahead, but for Miami, every single game will be hard so that is not really worrying me. Actually, the Dolphins have one of the easiest schedules for wide receivers from Week 13 to Week 15 (fantasy playoff weeks in some leagues).

In seven games last season, Wilson averaged 13.9 fantasy points per game while playing seven. I don’t think that is too far away from his floor in 2019. I’d say he can offer 10 points per week constantly this season on he’s 100 percent, which should happen sooner rather than later. At that point, if you play in a deep league or your have to lineup three receivers and one or more flex players every week then Wilson should be a serious option to consider adding before someone else picks him up.
