  • Jeff Wilson Jr. Scores Twice In Week 17

    San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. continued his strong finish to the year in Week 17 against the Seattle Seahawks. Wilson rushed 20 times for 76 yards and a touchdown. He also caught three of his seven targets for 12 yards and a score. The 49ers really leaned heavily on Wilson down the stretch and he certainly delivered. Wilson is a free agent after this year and he's going to be someone worth keeping an eye on. Raheem Mostert (knee) was the team's primary rusher when healthy this year. He will be back with the team next year. If Wilson re-signs, he and Mostert might be in a competition for the team's No. 1 back role next year.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. Should Flourish In Week 17

    San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. is in a great spot going into Week 17 against the Seattle Seahawks. Wilson rushed 22 times for 183 yards and added a 21-yard touchdown reception in Week 16. This week, he should see a similar workload as he's the team's clear No. 1 running back. The Seahawks have a strong run defense, allowing 96.2 rushing yards per game, but 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has a long track record of success against strong run defenses and the quantity of touches alone for Wilson should allow him to overcome any potential low efficiency. Start Wilson as a high-end RB2 with RB1 upside in Week 17.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. Runs Wild In Week 16

    San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. had a monster game in Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals. Wilson carried the ball 22 times for 183 yards and also caught a 21-yard touchdown pass. The 49ers leaned heavily on Wilson this week. Tevin Coleman was second on the team in carries with just two. Wilson has been a reliable fantasy producer when he's been the team's primary back, but he hasn't had a workload like he had this week very often.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. Has RB1 Upside In Week 16

    San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. appears to be in a fantastic spot heading into Week 16 against the Arizona Cardinals. The team is shutting down Raheem Mostert (ankle) for the year and Wilson is now the team's No. 1 back. Last week, Wilson saw 16 carries while Mostert earned 14, missing a chunk of the game after injuring his ankle. Tevin Coleman was next on the team with just three carries last week. The 49ers are a team that runs often and typically runs effectively. The Cardinals rank amongst the middle of the pack in run defense, allowing 119.4 rushing yards per game. Wilson has a chance to rush for around 100 yards this week and he has fantastic touchdown potential as well. Start him as a solid RB2 with a decent floor and high upside in Week 16.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. Scores Rushing Touchdown In Week 15

    San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. was the team's most active running back in Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys. He rushed 16 times for 60 yards and a touchdown in the game. He also had four targets in the passing game, but was unable to come down with any of them. The team's No. 1 back Raheem Mostert (ankle) left the game midway through with an ankle injury and didn't return, but Wilson was heavily involved even before Mostert's injury. Wilson should be rostered in all fantasy leagues going into Week 16 and is a fantastic starting option if Mostert is out next week.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. A Strong Starting Option In Week 15

    San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. is in a great spot going into Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys have the league's worst run defense, allowing 162.7 rushing yards per game. Wilson has been the team's No. 2 back over the past two weeks, but the workload gap between him and the team's No. 1 Raheem Mostert (ankle) has been minimal. Additionally, Mostert is dealing with an ankle injury and is currently questionable for Week 15. If Mostert sits, Wilson has RB1 upside and is a must-start RB2. If Mostert plays, Wilson is still a fantastic start, but would be more of a flex or RB3 option.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. Scores A Touchdown In Week 14

    San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. carried the ball 11 times for 31 yards and a touchdown in Week 14 against the Washington Football Team. He also caught one of his three targets for 13 yards. Raheem Mostert was the team's primary back in the game, carrying the ball 14 times for 65 yards. Mostert also missed some time in the game while going through concussion protocol after an injury, which led to Wilson getting additional work. Wilson should be owned in most leagues of 12 teams or deeper and could have some value going forward, but he's a risky starting option as long as Mostert is healthy.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. A Low-End Flex Option

    San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. heavily cut into the workload of the team's No. 1 back,Raheem Mostert, in Week 13. Wilson earned seven carries as well as five targets in the passing game, while Mostert had nine carries and just one target. This week, the 49ers face the Washington Football Team, and it's hard to know what to expect in regards to the workload share. Head coach Kyle Shanahan is likely going to go with the hot-hand approach. The good news is that both running backs should have opportunities out of the gate. The bad news is that it's hard to know how effective each will be with those opportunities. Wilson is a low-end flex option if you're in a bind, but he's a bit risky and could be relegated to around five touches if Mostert excels.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. Leads 49ers In Rushing In Week 13

    San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. was the team's most effective rusher in Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills. Wilson carried the ball seven times for 47 yards, good for 6.7 yards per carry. He out-performed the team's lead back, Raheem Mostert, who had nine carries for 42 yards. Wilson also saw five targets in the passing game and reeled in two of them for 12 yards. Wilson is definitely someone who should be owned in all deep leagues as the clear No. 2 back on a team that runs a lot and typically runs effectively. This week's game was a bit unusual as they were chasing points against the high-scoring Bills. Wilson will have deep league flex potential in next week against the Washington Football Team.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. Has Deep League Flex Potential In Week 13

    San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. carried the ball 12 times for 40 yards in his return to action in Week 12 against the Los Angeles Rams. He was the team's second rusher behind Raheem Mostert, who earned 16 carries in the game. Mostert figures to be the primary back once again in Week 13 as the 49ers face the Buffalo Bills, a team surrendering 129.6 yards per game on the ground. Wilson should see double-digit touches once again this week as long as Tevin Coleman (knee) remains out. He should also see some red zone touches as he's shown a knack for punching the ball into the end zone. Wilson doesn't have tremendous upside, but he's a flex option in deep leagues as the second back on a strong rushing offense against a weak rushing defense.

  • Jeff Wilson Jr. Gains 43 Yards, Fumbles

    San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. tied with Raheem Mostert for the team lead in rushing yards in Week 12 with 43. However, Wilson only needed 12 carries to get there, while Mostert had 16 carries. This was Wilson's first game back after suffering an ankle injury in Week 7. He's the clear No. 2 on the team for now, but the team could have Tevin Coleman (knee) back as soon as next week, which would make the situation a bit more complicated. Wilson lost a fumble in this week's game, as did Mostert. Wilson didn't have any work in the passing game in Week 12, which is another bad sign for his fantasy outlook going forward.

  • Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson Jr. Questionable For Week 12

    San Francisco 49ers running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) and cornerback Richard Sherman (calf) will be activated from Injured Reserve on Saturday and will be questionable for Week 12 against the Rams. Mostert has been out since Week 6 but could be inserted back into the lead-back role, albeit in a crowded backfield, if he's active on Sunday. He will certainly be a nice addition to fantasy lineups that are trying to make a postseason run, but Mostert will be a somewhat shaky RB3/flex if he's eased back into the fold in a crowded backfield against a Rams Defense allowing the fourth-fewest fantasy points to RBs in 2020. Wilson has been out since Week 7 but was effective when asked to step up for San Fran. Mostert will be the most attractive fantasy back on the Niners if he plays, but this backfield will still be a headache for fantasy managers in Week 12.

  • Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson Jr. Return From Injured Reserve

    San Francisco 49ers running backs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) were both designated to return from Injured Reserve on Tuesday, making it possible that either could take the field Sunday against the Rams. Mostert has served as San Francisco's lead back when healthy this season, having amassed 65 yards on 17 carries against Los Angeles back in Week 6, the last time that he took the field. Upon getting the green light to return to action, he should be rostered with confidence all season-long leagues. Wilson's status is a bit more shaky, as his fantasy intrigue is directly related to the health of the rest of the 49ers backfield. Tevin Coleman (knee), Mostert and Jerick McKinnonall figure to be ahead of Wilson on the depth chart when healthy, thereby limiting his touches once he's officially back in the mix.
