Cedrick Wilson Fantasy Football News | Shark Bites

Most Recent Fantasy Football News & Updates

The Dolphins released WR Preston Williams. He's been on the roster bubble since Miami's new coaching staff traded for WR Tyreek Hill and signed WR Cedrick Wilson this offseason. It looks like the Dolphins will open the season with Hill, Jaylen Waddle, Wilson and Trent Sherfield as their top 4 WRs.

Dolphins WR Trent Sherfield started ahead of WR Cedrick Wilson in Saturday night's preseason finale against the Eagles. Sherfield opened the game opposite Tyreek Hill, with Jaylen Waddle inactive. Wilson didn't enter the game until after Hill left. That points to Sherfield -- who played under HC Mike McDaniel in San Francisco -- leading the race to be #3 WR, despite Wilson getting significant money in free agency. The role gains some importance as Waddle deals with an unspecified injury. We'll see about Waddle's status as Week 1 approaches. Neither Sherfield nor Wilson should factor into most fantasy football drafts. But Sherfield could be a sneaky late addition to best-ball tournament lineups.

Dolphins WR coach Wes Welker complimented WR Cedrick Wilson in OTAs. Welker listed the following as positives: “His smoothness, his understanding of defenses and how to run routes, how to get open, understanding the techniques of defenders and how to attack them,” the former WR said. “Just a very savvy player who has kind of played with a chip on his shoulder. We’re looking forward for him to play with that same chip here.” Wilson signed a 3-year deal worth ~$12.8 million guaranteed in March. Miami proceeded to crush his fantasy value with the trade for Tyreek Hill. Still, the former Cowboy could jump into the WR3 mix with an injury to either Hill or Jaylen Waddle.

The Dolphins have agreed to a 3-year, $22.8 million deal with WR Cedrick Wilson, according to multiple reports. Wilson, who turned 26 in November, has seen his role increase each year. He garnered 61 targets in 2021, logging 4 starts thanks to Michael Gallup's injury. The new contract says he'll join Jaylen Waddle and DeVante Parker among Miami's top 3 at the position. With TE Mike Gesicki also back (franchise tag), Dolphins targets could be spread a little thin.

In addition to the rumored nearing deal with WR Michael Gallup, the Cowboys also believe they can retain WR Cedrick Wilson in the wake of moving WR Amari Cooper and his contract. Like Gallup, Wilson is set to hit free agency this month. Wilson set career highs with 61 targets, 45 catches, 602 yards and 6 TDs in 2021, benefitting from Gallup losing half the season to injuries. If he does re-sign with Dallas, Wilson should be the front-runner for the #3 role -- likely settling in as the primary slot guy. Wilson spent 90% of his pass snaps in the slot last season, according to Pro Football Focus.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said after Sunday's loss to the Cardinals that WR Michael Gallup is believed to have a torn left ACL. He'll undergo an MRI on Monday to confirm that diagnosis. If it's a torn ACL, Gallup will miss Week 18 and the playoffs and hit free agency in March rehabbing a serious injury. We'll track his rehab and see where he ends up signing. Cedrick Wilson will replace Gallup as Dallas' #3 WR.

The Cowboys on Monday placed WR Cedrick Wilson on the COVID list after he tested positive. His absence doesn't mean much for fantasy football, now that Dallas' top 3 wideouts are back healthy. We'll keep our fingers crossed that his exposure doesn't bring down any higher-profile member of the Cowboys offense heading into Sunday's meeting with the Giants.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper (COVID) is listed as questionable for Thursday night's game vs. the Saints. He was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday, his 1st official practice since coming off the COVID list. ESPN's Ed Werder reported this morning that Cooper is expected to play tomorrow night, but we'll find out for sure around 7 pm ET. WR Cedrick Wilson (ankle) is out for Week 13. That leaves Noah Brown and Malik Turner as Dallas' depth WRs behind CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup and (potentially) Amari Cooper.

Cowboys WR CeeDee Lamb (concussion) is out for today's game vs. the Raiders, NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports. Lamb has made some progress through the protocol but was always a long shot to get cleared for this Thursday game. With WR Amari Cooper (COVID) also out, Dallas is down to WRs Michael Gallup, Cedrick Wilson, Noah Brown and Malik Turner. TE Dalton Schultz should also play a big role in the passing game today.

Cowboys WR Amari Cooper has landed on the COVID list. He's out for Sunday's game vs. the Chiefs and the Thanksgiving game vs. the Raiders. Cooper's absence should mean target boosts for CeeDee Lamb, Michael Gallup and Dalton Schultz. Cedrick Wilson is the favorite for #3 WR duties, but Noah Brown and Malik Turner might also mix in.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup (calf) was not activated from IR on Saturday and won't play against the Broncos on Sunday. He's been back at practice for a couple of weeks now, so we're guessing he'll return for Week 10. Cedrick Wilson gets at least 1 more game as Dallas' #3 WR.

Chargers CB Chris Harris Jr. is out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys with a shoulder injury. That leaves L.A. without its top cover man and primary slot corner. Dallas WR Cedrick Wilson likely stands to benefit the most. With Michael Gallup out, Wilson will serve as the #3 wideout and played 85% of his pass snaps in the slot in Week 1.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup is expected to be sidelined 3-5 weeks with a calf strain, The Dallas Morning News' Michael Gehlken reports. Gallup figures to land on short-term IR. It's worth noting that Dallas has a Week 7 bye, so it's possible we don't see Gallup again until Week 8. He's not a must-hold in shallower fantasy leagues. WR Cedrick Wilson ran a route on 85% of Dallas' pass plays after Gallup exited Thursday night's opener and is worth a look on waiver wires. Gallup's absence, of course, will also free up targets for WRs Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb.

Cowboys WR Michael Gallup is officially questionable to return to Thursday night's game vs. the Bucs with a left ankle injury. The broadcast showed him on the sidelines but without a helmet. Cedrick Wilson replaced Gallup as Dallas' #3 WR.

Cowboys rookie WR Cedrick Wilson suffered a torn shoulder labrum in Saturday's practice. It's not yet clear whether he'll require surgery or how long he'll be out. But the injury certainly help the chances of the 6th-round pick earning a role in 2018.

The Cowboys added Boise State WR Cedrick Wilson in the 6th round. Wilson is 1 of our favorite day-3 sleepers at WR. After spending 2 years at Coffeyville Community College, he transferred to Boise State and became an immediate factor. Wilson led the Broncos with 11 receiving TDs in 2016 and ranked 2nd with 56 catches and 1,129 yards. He set new career highs with 83 grabs and 1,511 yards this past season. Only James Washington tallied more yardage. Wilson is a wiry 6’2, 197 pounds with average athleticism. But he can play outside the numbers or in the slot and is a savvy route runner with plus after-the-catch ability. He joins a Cowboys WR corps that’s in transition after losing Dez Bryant and adding 3rd-round rookie Michael Gallup and vet Allen Hurns. There’s room for Wilson to carve out a role here.
