Past Fantasy Outlooks
2017
2016
Wilds was given just 12 touches in four games after being promoted from the practice squad in December last year, and while he'll have a full offseason with the Jets this time around, there's little reason to expect a significant jump in fantasy production. The team's backfield is one of the few areas with skillful players on the depth chart, and with Bilal Powell and Matt Forte expected to dominate the touches, and Elijah McGuire around to handle any other duties, it's tough to see Wilds making a meaningful contribution unless there are significant injuries.
Wilds is currently the last running back on the depth chart, meaning he's got an uphill battle to make the final 53-man roster. He'll need to impress early and often in the preseason if he hopes to be on the roster come September.
