2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 49ers backfield sustained its fair share of injuries last season, which allowed an undrafted rookie off the practice squad to earn some reps as a starter. Wilson proved to be capable in the six games (three starts) for which he was active, rushing for 266 yards (4.0 YPC) and gaining 92 receiving yards on 12 receptions. The 23-year-old will find it hard to crack the active roster in 2019, as the addition of Tevin Coleman, return of Jerick McKinnon and presence of Matt Breida and special-teams ace Raheem Mostert could leave Wilson on the outside looking in.

Effective when called upon
RBSan Francisco 49ers
February 7, 2020
Wilson had 27 carries for 105 yards and four touchdowns, adding three receptions for 34 yards and another score in 10 games this season.
ANALYSIS
Wilson began the year on the 49ers' practice squad for the second season in a row, and he was quickly promoted to the main roster in Week 2 after Tevin Coleman suffered a multi-week injury. The 24-year-old was effective early on as a goal-line back, scoring all four of his touchdowns in the first two games following his promotion. Wilson saw his role reduced significantly as the backfield returned to full strength, and he should find himself in a similar situation to begin the 2020 season with all three of the backs ahead of him on the depth chart under contract.
