SF RB Jeff Wilson - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 5 vs. Cleveland Browns
Jeff “The Vulture” Wilson has 18 carries and four touchdowns over his past two games. He’s averaging a mere 2.9 yards per carry, but has been used extensively as the short-yardage back. This hardly seems sustainable, but in touchdown-only leagues, Wilson clearly is worth a gamble if this continues. Fantasy owners in this league-type should still be cautious starting him, but if he keeps getting short-yardage work even when Tevin Coleman returns, then it might make him valuable in that very specific league type. Otherwise, the touchdown production doesn’t seem consistent enough to overcome the lack of production elsewhere in most leagues, and he should stay on waivers.
