The 49ers have signed restricted free agent RB Jeff Wilson, Jr. to a one-year contract.
He set career-highs with 126 carries, 600 yards and 7 TD, playing great for the team late in the season.
Coming off a career-high season, Jeff Wilson will once again be competing with Raheem Mostert for the lead job as they're both now signed through the 2021 season. Both Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon are set to be unrestricted free agents this offseason, leaving the third-down back slot up in the air.
SF RB Jeff Wilson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook
Week 17 vs. Seattle Seahawks
Jeff Wilson had a great game against the Cardinals last week, gaining 183 yards on 22 carries, and adding 21 yards and a touchdown on a reception. Wilson looked like a bellcow for the 49ers in a surprising victory over the Cardinals, and with Raheem Mostert shut down for the final game of the season, expect Wilson to have another busy day this week against the Seahawks.
Seattle ranks 20th in aFPA to opposing running backs, so the opportunity is there for Wilson to repeat his production with a heavy workload. We have him ranked as a solid RB2 in all league formats. Expect another busy day for Wilson, with a good chance at finding the end zone.
