Jeff Wilson
23-Year-Old Running BackRB
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.

Elevates to third on depth chart
RBSan Francisco 49ers
October 21, 2019
Wilson ran the ball five times for 20 yards in Sunday's 9-0 win over Washington.
ANALYSIS
Wilson received his first carries since Week 3 (when he filled in for Tevin Coleman) after being limited to special teams duties against the Rams last week. The 23-year-old appears to have flipped roles with fellow backup Raheem Mostert, as the latter was limited to snaps on special teams. If Wilson continues to hold that third spot on the depth chart, there would be potential for touchdowns after he recorded four scores over the span of two games while serving as the team's goal-line back. The North Texas product's value will be touchdown-dependent in a limited role against the Panthers on Sunday.
