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.

Scores twice in win over Chiefs
RBSan Francisco 49ers
August 24, 2019
Wilson ran for 45 yards on 12 carries, scoring two rushing touchdowns during Saturday's 27-17 preseason win against the Chiefs.
ANALYSIS
With Saturday night's performance in the books, Wilson now leads the 49ers in rushing yards over the past two weeks, while logging three combined scores on the ground against Denver and Kansas City. He didn't account for a single rushing or receiving touchdown in six regular-season appearances for San Francisco last year, though he did average north of four yards per carry, while having one explosive receiving performance -- eight catches for 73 yards against Seattle in Week 13. Wilson has been productive when granted opportunities within Kyle Shanahan's offense, but competing within one of the most top-loaded position groups in the NFL, he isn't guaranteed substantial playing time if he's able to secure a roster spot behind presumed No. 1 and 2 options Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida.
