Player Outlook
Wilson only saw double-digit touches once in 2023 and we don't expect that to change in 2024. He'll be battling Jaylen Wright, Salvon Ahmed and Chris Brooks for the RB3 role in Miami and his best chance for Fantasy relevance might be to lose that battle, get cut and find a job with less competition. Barring multiple injuries we do not expect Wilson to be a factor in Fantasy Football in 2024 and we would only advise holding him in deep leagues with more than 20-man rosters.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Not assured of roster spot?

    Wilson is part of a crowded backfield alongside Raheem Mostert, De'Von Achane and rookie fourth-round pick Jaylen Wright, Omar Kelly of The Miami Herald reports. Wilson may be a favorite of coach Mike McDaniel, but the 28-year-old nonetheless faces a difficult path to earning a roster spot if the three aforementioned RBs stay healthy this summer. With those three being roster locks, the Dolphins may end up having Wilson, Salvon Ahmed and Chris Brooks competing for one or two spots on the practice squad. Wilson agreed to a contract restructure in March, dropping his base salary to $1.12 million while guaranteeing him $400,000, per Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Quiet in wild-card loss

    Wilson secured one of two targets for six yards during the Dolphins' 26-7 wild-card loss to Kansas City on Saturday. Wilson had a quiet end to an underwhelming 2023 campaign in which he racked up 188 rushing yards on 41 carries (4.6 average) across 10 regular-season appearances, plus 14 catches for 85 yards on 17 targets. Despite missing the first six games of the season to rib and finger injuries and seeing a substantial downtick in total production, Wilson's end-of-year efficiency metrics still stand out, and his versatility makes him a valuable depth piece for Miami behind Raheem Mostert and De'Von Achane. Wilson's set to make $3 million in 2024 on the final season of his current contract, but the Dolphins could cut him loose this offseason while only incurring a $782,500 dead-cap hit, meaning that in order to stay with the team he will likely have to negotiate a restructure.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Season-high snap count in finale

    Wilson rushed nine times for 45 yards in Sunday's 21-14 loss to Buffalo. Wilson worked as the No. 2 option out of the backfield behind De'Von Achane (toe) while Raheem Mostert (knee) was sidelined Sunday. He was efficient in limited action, though not to the extent that Mostert and Achane have proven this season, and the Dolphins appear optimistic that their top two tailbacks will be available for Saturday's wild-card game in Kansas City. Mostert's availability looks the most up in the air, but if either he or Achane is sidelined for the playoff opener, Wilson will again be in line for an elevated role. Across 10 regular-season appearances, Wilson accrued 188 rushing yards on 41 attempts (4.6 average), plus 14 catches for 85 yards on 17 targets.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Limited role Sunday

    Wilson ran for 21 yards on three carries and caught three passes for 13 yards on four targets in Sunday's 56-19 loss to the Ravens. The Ravens consistently added scoreboard distance between themselves and Miami over the course of the game, and as the Dolphins fell behind there was increasingly less room for Wilson in the game plan. In a closer game the Dolphins might have had more carries to distribute, but even with Raheem Mostert (knee/ankle) out Wilson saw only three carries to De'Von Achane's 14. Wilson appears safely behind both Mostert and Achane at this point, though if either were to miss time Wilson could pop back up on the mainstream fantasy radar.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Could have expanded profile Sunday

    Wilson is likely to have an expanded role as the Dolphins' No. 2 back behind De'Von Achane in Sunday's game against the Ravens with Raheem Mostert (knee/ankle) likely to be inactive for the contest, Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network report. Mostert is officially listed as questionable but is expected to miss his first game of the season after he managed just one limited practice this week while tending to his pair of injuries. The explosive Achane could make a push for a 20-touch workload Sunday with Mostert out of the picture, but the Dolphins will still likely attempt to keep the rookie fresh by mixing Wilson and perhaps even third-stringer Chris Brooks into the backfield. While Mostert was limited due to his injuries in the Dolphins' 22-20 win over the Cowboys in Week 16, Wilson played 15 snaps -- his most since Week 12 -- and finished with five carries for 21 yards and one catch for four yards.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Handles six touches

    Wilson rushed five times for 21 yards and secured his only target for four yards during Sunday's 22-20 win over Dallas. Wilson was moderately productive in limited action, as he once again handled a reserve role behind Raheem Mostert and De'Von Achane. The versatile veteran doesn't have a path to fantasy relevance or double-digit touches unless Miami's depth chart ahead of him changes. He projects for similar usage Week 17 at Baltimore.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Quiet again in No. 3 role

    Wilson rushed two times for five yards during Sunday's 30-0 win over the Jets. He also secured one of two targets for one yard. Wilson continues to handle a clear depth role with Raheem Mostert and De'Von Achane both healthy. It's difficult to imagine a path for Wilson to handle a relevant workload without at least one of the starters ahead of him missing time, meaning he remains off the fantasy radar heading into a key Week 16 matchup against Dallas.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    I'm not expecting De'Von Achane (knee) to play in Week 13 at Washington, but that's the situation to monitor this week when it comes to Wilson. If Achane is out, then Wilson is worth using as a flex option in all leagues. He just had his best game of the season in Week 12 at the Jets with 11 carries for 56 yards and three catches for 17 yards on three targets, and hopefully he can build off that performance as he works in tandem with Raheem Mostert. The Commanders have allowed a running back to score at least 13.0 PPR points in seven games in a row, and there should be room for Mostert to be a top-10 running back in all leagues, with Wilson as a standout flex.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Week 13 Adds (RB Preview)

    Wilson is a good stash just because of the injury history of Raheem Mostert and De'Von Achane. If Achane misses Week 13 against Washington then Wilson would also be a good flex play. Wilson played a season-high 33% of the snaps in Week 12 and turned 14 touches into 73 yards and 10.3 PPR Fantasy points.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Active Friday, likely as No. 2 back

    Wilson is active and is expected to serve as the Dolphins' top backup running back behind starter Raheem Mostert in Friday's game against the Jets with De'Von Achane (knee) inactive for the contest. In Achane's return from injured reserve during the Dolphins' Week 11 win over the Raiders, Wilson found himself inactive while Miami went with Mostert, Achane and Salvon Ahmed as its three running backs. However, with Ahmed suffering a season-ending foot injury in that contest and with Achane now sidelined for at least the Week 12 game after tweaking his knee in the team's win over Las Vegas, Wilson will re-enter the Miami backfield mix. Mostert is still expected to see the majority of the snaps and touches at running back Week 12, but while he was available for Weeks 7 through 9 during Achane's stint on IR, Wilson averaged 2.3 carries and 2.3 targets per contest. Given that the Dolphins enter Friday's contest as heavy favorites, Wilson could be in store for more touches than usual if Miami is able to establish a comfortable lead early on.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Expected to play Week 12

    Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel said Wednesday that he expects Wilson to play in Friday's game against the Jets, Daniel Oyefusi of The Miami Herald reports. Wilson was a healthy inactive in Miami's 20-13 win over the Raiders in Week 11, as the team welcomed De'Von Achane back from a knee injury. Per Hal Habib of the Palm Beach Post, McDaniel mentioned Salvon Ahmed's special teams contributions as a reason that the team went with Ahmed over Wilson as the third running back behind Raheem Mostert and Achane. Ahmed (foot) has since been placed on injured reserve with a season-ending injury, while Achane (knee) is uncertain to play Friday. As a result, Wilson should have a role in team's running back rotation against the Jets behind Mostert, whose practice reps have been capped this week due to ankle and knee injuries.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Week 12 Waiver Priority List

    De'Von Achane (knee) and Salvon Ahmed (undisclosed) were both banged up in Week 11 against Las Vegas, which could put Wilson back in the mix as the No. 2 running back for the Dolphins behind Raheem Mostert. Now, Achane and Ahmed could both play in Week 12 at the Jets on Black Friday, so keep that in mind before adding Wilson. And it's not like Wilson did much when active (he was a healthy scratch against the Raiders) with 6.8 PPR points or less in three games this year. But it's not a bad idea to stash Wilson just to see what develops, and Achane might have a hard time staying healthy to close out the year. Wilson is worth up to 5 percent of your FAB.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Healthy inactive for Week 11

    Wilson (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Raiders. Wilson's status as a healthy inactive for Week 11 represents a steep fall for a player who averaged 4.9 yards per carry and scored six touchdowns in 16 games a season ago, but it likely speaks to the confidence the Dolphins have in the health of rookie De'Von Achane (knee), who will make his return from injured reserve Sunday. After the tandem of Achane and Raheem Mostert proved to be a lethal one through the first five weeks of the season while Wilson was on IR with an injury of his own, Wilson looks as though he could be an afterthought in the backfield rotation moving forward. In addition to Achane and Mostert, Salvon Ahmed is also active as the team's No. 3 back, though he's presumably getting the nod over Wilson due to his responsibilities on special teams.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Just one touch in debut

    Wilson secured his only target for four yards during Sunday's 31-17 loss to the Eagles. He did not record a carry. Wilson was an afterthought behind both Raheem Mostert and Salvon Ahmed in his season debut. The veteran may simply still be rusty after having missed the first six games of the season due to multiple injuries, but fantasy managers will want to see him handle a notable workload before considering him a trustworthy lineup option, especially with a matchup against New England's stout defense coming in Week 8.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Three straight FPs but still on IR

    Wilson (ribs/finger) was a full participant for a third consecutive practice Friday. Wilson practiced without limitations this week, and the Dolphins opened up a spot on their 53-man roster by moving fellow running back Chris Brooks (ankle) to injured reserve Friday, so all signs point to the former coming off injured reserve to suit up Sunday against the Eagles. Once he's officially activated, Wilson will likely leapfrog Salvon Ahmed as the primary backup to Raheem Mostert, at least until productive rookie De'Von Achane (knee) returns from his own IR stint.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Sit Him (Lineup Decisions)

    First, you need to make sure Wilson plays this week; if he doesn't then Salvon Ahmed will take his place. But then you need to understand that the matchup will be tough for Wilson, then figure he will play around 20 snaps and maybe see 10 touches. There are a lot of must-start players in this game, but Wilson isn't one of them.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Not ready for Sunday

    Wilson (ribs/finger) was not activated off injured reserve Saturday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. This was always going to be the likely conclusion after Wilson was listed as doubtful following Friday's final injury report. As a result, Raheem Mostert will be the main ball carrier in a tremendous matchup against the Panthers, with Salvon Ahmed figuring to be the next man up.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Sneaky Sleeper (Lineup Decisions)

    Once it's clear that Wilson will play, the matchup combined with the Dolphins' approach to utilize multiple backs should put Wilson in position to have some good opportunities. Remember, Wilson's injury was to his abdomen, not his legs, so there might not be much of a limit on how much work he'll do (though it's unlikely he'll have a ton of touches). I'd take my chances with him over Samaje Perine, Jerick McKinnon and Antonio Gibson.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Sleepers (Start/Sit)

    As of Wednesday afternoon, Wilson has yet to be activated off injured reserve with his rib injury, but it seems inevitable like that will happen prior to Week 6 with De'Von Achane (knee) now on IR. When active, Wilson will work in tandem with Raheem Mostert, who is a must-start Fantasy running back in all leagues, but Wilson has flex appeal in his first game back against the Panthers. Carolina is No. 2 in most Fantasy points allowed to running backs, and seven running backs have scored at least 10.8 PPR points against the Panthers this year, with nine total touchdowns scored. Wilson played eight games with the Dolphins in 2022, and he scored at least 10.6 PPR points in five of them. He has the chance to help Fantasy managers for at least the next four games with Achane now on IR.

  • Dolphins' Jeff Wilson: Limited in first practice

    Wilson (ribs/finger) was a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Cameron Wolfe of NFL Network reports. Wilson practiced for the first time this season after he was designated for return from injured reserve earlier Wednesday. The transaction opens up a 21-day window for the Dolphins to evaluate him for a return to the 53-man roster, and Sunday's game against the Panthers marks the earliest opportunity for Wilson to potentially play. If activated ahead of the Week 6 matchup, Wilson would likely slide into the No. 2 running back role behind Raheem Mostert, with De'Von Achane (knee) headed for IR. After coming over to Miami in a midseason trade with San Francisco in 2022, Wilson averaged 4.7 yards per carry and accounted for four touchdowns in eight games with the Dolphins.
