Jeff Wilson Jr. Fantasy Football News 2021

The 49ers signed restricted free-agent RB Jeff Wilson to a 1-year deal, ESPN's Field Yates reports. Wilson set career highs across the board last season and finished strong, tallying 58 carries for 319 yards (5.5 YPC) and 2 scores over the final 3 games. He also saw 13 targets during that stretch -- although he caught just 4 of them. With both Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon set to hit free agency in March, it's Wilson and Raheem Mostert signed in San Francisco for 2021 right now.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson isn't listed on the Week 16 injury report. He appeared to tweak a hamstring in last week's loss to the Cowboys but is evidently good to go for Saturday's game vs. the Cardinals. With RB Raheem Mostert out with his ankle injury, Wilson is set up for a heavy workload.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that 49ers RB Raheem Mostert suffered another high-ankle sprain in Sunday's loss to the Cowboys and is "likely" done for the season. That leaves Jeff Wilson Jr. likely to lead the Week 16 backfield, assuming his own ankle issue doesn't get in the way. Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon sit behind Wilson on the depth chart.

Update: Tom Pelissero reports that the team is placing Mostert on IR.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson appeared to injure his right hamstring late in the loss to Dallas. We’ll update his status when we learn more. Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon are left as San Francisco’s healthy RBs.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) put in a full practice on Friday and isn't listed on the final injury report. So he should be ready for his usual role vs. the Cowboys this weekend. Mostert has worked in a committee alongside RB Jeff Wilson the past 3 weeks, leading in carries 39 to 30 but trailing 8 to 7 in targets.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) did not practice on Wednesday. We don't have any details on the ankle injury, but he's clearly in some danger of missing this weekend's game vs. Dallas. Mostert's absence would presumably make Jeff Wilson San Francisco's lead back, with Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon candidates for bigger roles.

49ers RB Raheem Mostert came out of Sunday's loss to Washington with an ankle injury, HC Kyle Shanahan said. Mostert was getting additional testing done on Monday, and Shanny said he'd know more about Mostert's status on Wednesday. We'll keep an eye on the situation. Jeff Wilson would seemingly be in line to operate as San Francisco's lead back vs. Dallas this weekend if Mostert is out.

49ers RBs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson (ankle) are active for today’s game against the Rams. Mostert has been San Francisco’s lead back when healthy this season, so consider him a risk/reward RB2 in his 1st game back vs. Los Angeles’ 10th-ranked RB defense.

ESPN's Adam Schefter lists 49ers RBs Raheem Mostert and Jeff Wilson among the "players returning to play this week." There's no specific report from Schefty on the 'Niners backfield, but we assume Mostert and Wilson will be active for today's game against the Rams. They should join Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty in the backfield. Mostert has been the lead back here when healthy and is the best Week 12 fantasy play.

49ers HC Kyle Shanahan said Friday that RBs Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson (ankle) will be activated for Week 12 but listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. The fact that they're being placed on the active roster makes us think they'll play, but we'll look for further updates. RB Tevin Coleman (knee) has been ruled out for Week 12.

The 49ers have designated RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) and Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) to return from IR. That makes each player eligible to practice this week. We'll see whether either or both are ready to play. The Niners have 3 weeks to decide whether to activate them. HC Kyle Shanahan said before the Week 11 bye that he hoped to get Mostert back onto the field for Week 12. We'll be interested in Mostert as a potential backfield leader if he's ready to go. Wilson would likely be more of a reserve in San Francisco's crowded backfield. Tevin Coleman (knee) -- who didn't land on IR -- will also bear watching through the practice week.

The 49ers placed RB Jeff Wilson on IR with his high-ankle sprain. He's out for at least the next 3 games. RB Raheem Mostert (ankle) is out for at least 2 more games, while RB Tevin Coleman (knee) remains iffy for Sunday's tilt against the Seahawks. San Francisco might be down to RBs JaMycal Hasty and Jerick McKinnon for that one. Hasty should be owned in pretty much all fantasy leagues at this point.

Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury reports that 49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr. suffered a high-ankle sprain in Sunday's win over the Patriots. We'll see about the expected return timeline, but this likely makes Wilson a drop in nearly all redraft leagues. RB Tevin Coleman should return soon and faces big opportunity when he does make it back. If Coleman's not ready for Week 8, then rookie JaMycal Hasty figures to see an uptick in work. He logged 9 carries each of the past 2 weeks.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson suffered a lower left leg injury at the end of his 3rd TD run in Sunday's game against the Patriots. He got off the field under his own power but was carted to the locker room. We'll update Wilson's status when we know more.

Update: Wilson has an ankle injury and has been ruled out.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson (calf) is active for today’s game against the Patriots. He joins Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty in a backfield missing Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman. McKinnon is the best fantasy bet today, but this could be a “hot-hand” situation.

49ers RB Jeff Wilson (calf) is expected to play against the Patriots today, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He'll join Jerick McKinnon and JaMycal Hasty in San Francisco's backfield. Wilson isn't a bankable fantasy play but could handle goal-line work for the 'Niners today.
