2 months ago66 carries in six games. The sign of the devil for sure. Unfortunately, Jeff Wilson is at this point close to the sixth man in the San Francisco RB group. Which is not a good thing. Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon look to be the two main guys in the offense for the 49ers. McKinnon was supposed to be the guy last season before his injury happened, and Tevin Coleman was signed as a free agent. Coleman is also accustomed to the offense due to his time in Atlanta with Kyle Shanahan. All of these things do not bode well for Wilson as a fantasy option in 2019. Even if either Coleman or McKinnon are unable to perform the duo of Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert are still going to be ahead of him on the depth chart. In drafts, Wilson is not even to be considered a flier. He is a hope and a prayer, and one which is not going to be answered for the good of your roster. Even if he were higher on the depth chart, Wilson does not have the profile of someone who should be taken in drafts. He is on a low-powered offense, and he has a quarterback who we don’t really know what effect he will have on the running back position. Additionally, he is in a division with high scoring offenses, meaning the games will lean pass heavy, making a backup running back not a solid bet. Even one who caught 12 passes in six games as a rookie. In dynasty leagues, a roster slot is acceptable in hopes of a new team in his future. Even this is likely not needed as he can be picked up off of waivers if and when this change does occur.--Dominick Petrillo - RotoBaller
