Albert Wilson Fantasy Football News 2019

8:07am EDT 7/26/19

The Dolphins have signed WR Allen Hurns to a 1-year deal worth up to $3 million, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Recently cut by the Cowboys, Hurns is reportedly recovered from the dislocated ankle and broken leg he suffered during last year's playoffs. The 27-year-old has totaled just 1,256 yards over the past 3 seasons after that huge 1,031-yard, 10-TD 2015 campaign. Hurns should at least slide in as Miami's #4 WR and could push Kenny Stills, DeVante Parker and Albert Wilson for snaps. It'll be a situation to keep an eye on over the next month.

Dolphins WR Albert Wilson (hip) was not placed on the PUP list to open training camp. He missed all of spring workouts and might still be limited early in camp. But Wilson is on track to be ready for the Week 1. The 27-year-old averaged a big 15.0 yards per catch and scored 4 times in 7 games last year. He ranked 25th among WRs in PPR points over that stretch. Highlight Wilson as a late-round target on your cheat sheet.

The Dolphins have released WR Danny Amendola. The 33-year-old caught 59 balls for 575 yards and 1 TD in his lone season in Miami. Amendola is still a reliable depth guy, but his days as a fantasy asset are over. With WR DeVante Parker also expected to be let go, the Fins are down to Kenny Stills, Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant atop the depth chart. We'll see what they add over the next few months.

Most of the talk surrounding the Miami offense this offseason has centered on players who might be leaving -- especially WR DeVante Parker and QB Ryan Tannehill. But new WRs coach Karl Dorrell recently talked about how much he's looking forward to coaching WR Albert Wilson. “He was pretty dynamic wasn’t he?” Dorrell told the Miami Herald. “He’s a very unique player. I’m really excited about him. .... I hear he’s doing a really good job with the recovery process but you could tell when he was on the field, he had a number of ways to affect the defense and to make the defense really pay attention to where he is and things like that.” We'll see about Wilson's recovery progression throughout this offseason, but he'll face a pretty open fight for targets in his 2nd season with the Dolphins and looks worth a late-round shot in current best-ball drafting.

Dolphins WR Albert Wilson doesn't need surgery on the hip injury that ended his 2018 season, according the Miami Herald, and is expected to be ready for the start of the offseason program in April. It's good news for a guy who flashed big-play ability in his 7 games last year, averaging 15.0 yards and scoring 4 times on 26 catches. He's a nice late-round target in early best-ball drafts.

The Dolphins have placed WR Albert Wilson on IR with his hip injury. The free-agent addition flashed big-play ability this season, averaging 15.0 yards per catch and scoring 4 times on 26 catches. He's a nice stash in dynasty leagues.

Dolphins WR Albert Wilson's hip injury could cost him the rest of the season, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The injury is reportedly to Wilson's labrum. “The best case scenario is that he would miss a few weeks," agent Drew Rosenhaus said in a radio appearance. We should learn more later today. Jakeem Grant stepped in as Miami's #3 WR after Wilson exited yesterday's game.

Dolphins WR Albert Wilson suffered a leg injury in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Lions. He's officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for updates.

UPDATE: Wilson has been ruled out.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (quad) is inactive for today’s game against the Patriots. That should mean more snaps for WRs Albert Wilson and Jakeem Grant, but both remain just fantasy fliers.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) is inactive for today’s game against the Jets. It’s a surprise after he put in full practices on Thursday and Friday — and maybe a sign of his spot on the depth chart. Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson will continue to serve as Miami’s top 3 WRs.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) was upgraded to a full participant in Thursday's practice. He's seemingly on track to play against the Jets this weekend. Parker would be tough to trust in fantasy lineups after having a rough August before breaking that finger. His return figures to put a dent in WR Albert Wilson's playing time, though. Kenny Stills remains the Dolphins' top fantasy WR.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) was limited in Wednesday's practice. He was also limited last Friday before missing the opener. His Week 2 status remains uncertain at this point. With Parker out last week, Kenny Stills played 95% of the snaps, Danny Amendola 73% and Albert Wilson 55%.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) is inactive for today’s game against the Titans. He returned to a limited practice on Friday and has a shot to be back for Week 2. Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson will serve as Miami’s top 3 WRs today.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) is listed as doubtful for this weekend’s game against the Titans. He did return to a limited practice on Friday, so he has a shot to be back for Week 2. Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson will serve as Miami’s top 3 WRs in the opener.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker (finger) won't play against the Titans this weekend, insider Armando Salguero reports. Parker still hadn't been cleared to catch passes as of last week, so consider him no better than 50/50 to be ready for Week 2. Kenny Stills, Danny Amendola and Albert Wilson will serve as Miami's top 3 WRs for however longer Parker is out.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker is out "indefinitely" with a broken right middle finger, according to The Miami Herald. It's the latest hit for a young wideout who has struggled to even generate any positive practice reviews as he heads into his 4th season. HC Adam Gase deemed Parker "week to week" but is reportedly optimistic that the WR will be ready for Week 1. In the meantime, Albert Wilson should get more 1st-team opportunities, while WRs Danny Amendola and Kenny Stills could also find more available targets.

Dolphins WR DeVante Parker has been "largely ineffective through five training camp practices," according to the Miami Herald's Adam Beasley. It's not even August yet, so it's far too early to panic. But this isn't exactly what we were hoping to hear about a guy who's been mostly disappointing through 3 NFL seasons. Parker has a huge opportunity this year with the departure of WR Jarvis Landry and his 161 targets -- but his playing time isn't guaranteed. Beasley suggests that WR Albert Wilson, who the Fins reportedly view as an outside receiver, could steal snaps from Parker. We'll be keeping a close eye on his progress over the next month.

Dolphins WR Danny Amendola took the majority of the 1st-team snaps -- alongside WRs DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills -- in Thursday's training-camp practice, according to the Miami Herald's Armando Salguero. WR Albert Wilson "rolled in some with the ones" but took most of his reps with the 2nd team. "I am having a hard time understanding how the Dolphins are going to maximize newly acquired wide receiver Albert Wilson this season," Salguero added. Amendola has the experience edge here, but Miami gave Wilson a surprisingly big 3-year, $24 million deal in free agency. There's only room for 1 of them in Miami's starting lineup. This is probably a situation to avoid in fantasy drafts until we get more clarity.

After generating buzz by projecting a possible 80-85 catches for Dolphins WR Danny Amendola, Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald says WR Albert Wilson has been "perhaps outplaying all of the others in OTA practices so far this spring." Colleague Barry Jackson added that "the Dolphins have been so impressed with new receiver Albert Wilson that they have decided he can be lined up not only in the slot, but also on the boundary and in the backfield." Jarvis Landry's departure has left a ton of targets available, in an offense that returns starting QB Ryan Tannehill from his ACL injury. Wilson is a no-risk flier at the end of drafts right now, 1 of at least 3 Miami WRs presenting upside beyond their current ADPs.

WR Albert Wilson is expected to ink a 3-year, $24 million deal with the Dolphins when free agency opens on Wednesday. It's a surprisingly lucrative contract for a guy with just 124 career catches. Wilson did set personal bests last year with 42 receptions, 554 yards and 3 TDs. He figures to replace Jarvis Landry as Miami's primary slot receiver, with DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills manning the outside.
