Scouting report

SF RB Jeff Wilson - Week 17 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 vs. Houston Texans

Jeff Wilson had a solid outing against the Titans last week, gaining 57 yards and a touchdown on 14 carries and three receptions. He’s been a very solid RB2 with Elijah Mitchell injured, and should continue to be considered a viable handcuff and starting option whenever Mitchell is out.

This week, Wilson has tremendous upside against a Texans defense that ranks 29th in aFPA to opposing running backs. Watch the injury status of Mitchell carefully, and be ready with a backup plan in case Mitchell is active, but if Wilson starts, he should be a solid RB2 once again and worth starting in all leagues.

SF RB Jeff Wilson - Week 16 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 at Tennessee Titans

Jeff Wilson had a great game against the Falcons last week, rushing for 110 yards and a touchdown in relief of the injured Elijah Mitchell. Mitchell is questionable heading into this week’s matchup against the Titans, so fantasy managers should watch the injury report carefully leading up to game time. If Mitchell starts, Wilson goes back to the bench and is relegated to handcuff status. If Mitchell sits, Wilson has low-end RB2 potential due to workload, despite a tough matchup against a Titans defense that ranks fourth in aFPA to opposing running backs.

SF RB Jeff Wilson - Week 14 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 14 at Cincinnati Bengals

Jeff Wilson had a big goose egg last week, and also is having some injury issues, but if Elijah Mitchell’s concussion symptoms keep him out of this week’s tilt against the Bengals, Wilson has the potential to reach RB2 numbers. Still, take a cautious approach to him and make sure he’s in and Mitchell is out before inserting him into lineups. The last time Mitchell missed a game, Wilson didn’t produce much, even though he had a full workload. Tread lightly here.

Update: With Mitchell out, Wilson has some RB2 potential. It's not a sure thing, as he's coming into the game less than 100% as well, but it's worth gambling on at this point in the season.

SF RB Jeff Wilson - Week 13 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 13 at Seattle Seahawks

Jeff Wilson was relegated to backup duty last week against the Vikings with Elijah Mitchell back in good health. Wilson finished with just seven yards on two carries and one reception. With Mitchell set to start again, Wilson should be held only as a handcuff, and not be in lineups this week. Sit him.

SF RB Jeff Wilson - Week 12 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 vs. Minnesota Vikings

Jeff Wilson filled in for Elijah Mitchell against the Jaguars last week, totaling 58 yards on 19 carries and a reception. Not a great game for Wilson, but the 19 carries were encouraging for those needing a backup option should Mitchell be out again. The Vikings rank ninth in aFPA to opposing running backs, but the added workload should produce solid production if Mitchell is out.

SF RB Jeff Wilson - Week 11 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Jacksonville Jaguars

Jeff Wilson returned to action last week against the Rams, but played a complementary role to Elijah Mitchell. Expect that to continue if Mitchell is healthy, but Wilson is worth adding in deeper leagues, just in case Mitchell misses time. He’s been nicked up multiple times this season and is now questionable heading into this week’s tilt against the Jaguars with a finger injury. If Mitchell sits, Wilson has fringe RB2 potential.

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.
