Scouting report

MIA WR Albert Wilson - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Baltimore Ravens

Albert Wilson is entering his sixth season in the league and does so as a projected starter in Miami. The Dolphins were already thin at receiver heading into the year, and then traded away Kenny Stills a week before the season started. This means Wilson gets an expanded role, and he could be promising. He was averaging 55 yards per game a year ago before being sidelined with an injury. But Week 1 may not be the week he shows off his skills as he draws a tough matchup against Baltimore. He's not much more than a WR4 option.

MIA WR Albert Wilson - 2019 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Albert Wilson was on pace for a fairly big season before being placed on injured reserve in 2018. If we take out his Week 7 performance where he left early, Wilson was averaging 3.8-59.8-0.6. If we convert that to a full season, that puts him at a pace of 61 receptions, 957 yards and 10 touchdowns.

Fantasy Downside
Wilson enters 2019 with a new offensive system and a new quarterback, so it’s hard to know whether he can keep up the pace he had a season ago. Also, a six-game sample size is very different from a full 16 game season. Miami also has a lot of similar talent in its receiving corps, so it’s hard to know exactly what role each player will have.

2019 Bottom Line
Wilson showed a lot of promise before his injury in 2018. That alone makes him an interesting late-round flier. His ADP is really low, so you can get him late in deeper leagues. He obviously carries some risk since his role is somewhat unknown, but if he can have production similar to what he had at the start of 2018 then he’s worth a stash.

MIA WR Albert Wilson - Week 7 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 7 vs. Detroit Lions

Reasons why we are not buying into Albert Wilson's breakout game last week as a sustainable performance: most of the yards came in the form of run after the catch, he only played 64 percent of snaps, and he needed a full overtime game to reach nine targets when his previous season high was six. We need to see more consistent usage week-to-week from Wilson to trust him in fantasy lineups, especially with Brock Osweiler at quarterback, who we all know has a long history of playing poorly. No Dolphins WR is averaging 5.5 targets this season. That's just hard to rely on in re-draft leagues each week.

MIA WR Albert Wilson - Week 6 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 6 vs. Chicago Bears

The Dolphins are 31st in the NFL in plays per game and face the Bears strong defense in Week 6 with an implied team total of less than 20 points. It's not as if any Dolphins receiver would be worth playing, even if this was a good match-up. It's impossible to project who will have a good game in a pass-catching core where nobody is averaging five targets per game. That includes Albert Wilson.

MIA WR Albert Wilson - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 at Cincinnati Bengals

The Dolphins had the most predictable of blowout losses in Week 4, and Miami has a bottom-seven implied team total in Week 5 of just 21.25 points. Here's the problem for Albert Wilson and the rest of the Dolphins receivers: this team only has 99 total targets on the season. No receiver is even averaging five targets per game. Hard pass on these options if you're looking for a sleeper WR for Week 5. You know what's worse than a running back by commitee for fantasy? A wide receiver by commitee.

MIA WR Albert Wilson - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Tennessee Titans

With the Patriots ranked only 23rd in aFPA to WRs and an above-average total of 48.5 points, there are reasons to like Dolphins receivers in Week 4. However, this continues to be a committee, as Ryan Tannehill is spreading the ball around. That means low-percentage splash plays or touchdowns are essential to prove valuable in starting lineups. The large target hole left by Jarvis Landry is not going to any one particular receiver. Through three weeks, five different Dolphins have double-digit targets and none have more than 14 (Jakeem Grant). DeVante Parker was also added back to the mix last week but only for three targets. It's just hard to rely on any Dolphins pass-catcher week in and week out, as Adam Gase appears to be deploying them with game-specific strategies in mind. That includes Albert Wilson, who saw his snaps cut in half last week.

MIA WR Albert Wilson - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 at Miami Dolphins

The Raiders defense has started top-15 in PPR points allowed to WRs. Albert Wilson has played fewer than 60 percent of snaps. He's seen fewer than six targets the first two weeks. That's not a recipe for fantasy success. This is a wide receiver by committee situation in Miami.
