SF RB Jeff Wilson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 at Los Angeles Rams

With Matt Breida set to miss the final game of the season, Jeff Wilson could be in for a full workload and a good fantasy outing. He’s shown the ability to contribute in the passing game in limited opportunities this season, and he’s averaging 4.1 yards per carry on 63 attempts this season.

The Rams have been a little above-average against opposing running backs this season, but if Wilson gets 20 or more touches, he should be considered a solid RB2 option in all league formats. The 49ers don’t have a lot on offense outside of tight end George Kittle, and Wilson should benefit from the absence of Breida.

SF RB Jeff Wilson - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Chicago Bears

With Matt Breida active last week, Jeff Wilson took a complementary role against the Seahawks, carrying the ball only seven times for 46 yards. He also had a fumble. Wilson’s value moving forward is directly tied to Breida’s status. Breida is still dealing with a banged up ankle, so watch his status this week to determine the viability of Wilson against the Bears.

Should Breida play, Wilson shouldn’t be trusted. If Breida is out, however, Wilson should be in line for a full workload. If that happens, he’s a borderline RB2 against the Bears, who have allowed only five rushing touchdowns all season. Only the Ravens and Titans have allowed fewer fantasy points to opposing running backs. If Breida is out, Wilson is worth considering in a tough matchup, but fantasy owners should probably steer clear of the San Francisco running game if possible.

SF RB Jeff Wilson - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. Seattle Seahawks

Jeff Wilson had 90 yards on 23 carries last week against the Broncos as he retained the starting running back role with Matt Breida injured. The 49ers aren’t playing for anything right now, so expect Wilson to continue to get a full workload as they evaluate talent for next season.

This week, Wilson faces a Seahawks defense that has been a little below average against the run this year, ranking 19th in the league in fantasy points allowed to opposing running backs. Wilson’s workload should be large enough to make him a nice RB2 option in all league formats, particularly if Breida is inactive, as is possible. If Breida returns, Wilson is still worth considering, but more as an RB3 option.

SF RB Jeff Wilson - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 vs. Denver Broncos

Jeff Wilson filled in for Matt Breida last week and put up 134 total yards from scrimmage on 23 touches. His 61 yards on 15 carries weren’t very impressive, but eight catches for 73 yards made him the second-most productive player in the 49ers passing game behind rookie Dante Pettis.

With Breida set to miss this week’s tilt against the Broncos, Wilson could be in for a full workload. The Broncos are above average against the run this year, giving up 24.4 total PPR fantasy points per game to the position, so it won’t be easy for Wilson to have repeated success. However, with a full workload and an active role in the passing game, Wilson should be considered a solid RB2 option this week, with high upside as a starter.
