Jeffery Wilson (RB, SF) - Week 4 Waiver Wire Pickups


BALLER MOVE: Add in 14+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 0% of Leagues

ANALYSIS: There certainly appears to be a clear red zone favorite in the San Franciso backfield. Second-year running back Jeffery Wilson has only been active the past two weeks, but has scored two touchdowns in each of his games, making it four total touchdowns on the year. That's four more rushing touchdowns than his teammates Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert - combined!

Wilson had a nice run during the last month of his rookie year in 2018. He had an eight-catch game against the Seahawks in Week 13 where he totaled over 130 combined rushing and receiving yards, then he rushed for 90 yards against the Broncos the following week. But in his 78 touches in 2018, he didn't score a single touchdown.

This year has been completely different for Wilson. Through two games, he's rushed the ball 18 times for 52 yards and four touchdowns. Breida and Mostert have had the heavier workload the past two weeks, with 26 and 25 carries, respectively, since Wilson's Week 2 debut, but Wilson's getting the more valuable redzone touches.

Touchdowns are tough to predict, but when you see a trend developing like this one in San Francisco, it's hard to ignore. Wilson most definitely won't keep up this extremely high touchdown rate, but he's worthy of an add in leagues of 14-or-more teams if you have an open roster spot and need some running back depth. Since he only has one target and no catches, he's more valuable in non-PPR leagues.
