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.
