Scouting report

MIA WR Albert Wilson - Week 15 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 15 vs. New York Jets

Albert Wilson is an interesting play in Week 15. In the last two games before the Dolphins' bye week, Wilson saw 14 targets. Wilson was already starting to get more involved in Miami's offense, and with Jaylen Waddle out this week (COVID), it wouldn't be crazy to see Wilson pick up some of Waddle's usage. Unfortunately, New York may not give up many catches as they've given up the second-fewest receptions to wide receivers this year. But Wilson has a chance to be a bit of a sneaky play, although he obviously carries some risk. Even though he's been a bit more involved, he's still only had more than 30 receiving yards in a game once this year. He'll be a desperation WR5 in Week 15.

MIA WR Albert Wilson - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Carolina Panthers

The Dolphins have started incorporating Albert Wilson into the lineup the past two weeks. In the past two games he's had two passing opportunities (which resulted in a sack and an incomplete pass), he's had three rushing attempts (for 16 yards) and seen nine targets, which he's turned into 7-105-0. He even had a two-yard kick return. But while he's been more involved, he hasn't been overly productive aside from one play where there was a blown coverage. He's not really on the fantasy radar in Week 12, especially in a tough matchup vs. the Panthers.

MIA WR Albert Wilson - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 vs. Cincinnati Bengals

The Dolphins have had some success from receivers not named DeVante Parker throughout the season, but none of them have been overly reliable. Albert Wilson was OK last week, finishing 5-59, but didn't have more than 40 yards in any other game this season. There should be better options available in Week 16.

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.
