View WR Fantasy Rankings »

What You Need to Know:

  • Due in part to 8 missed games from Michael Gallup, Wilson posted a career-best 45-602-6 line in 2021.
  • Playing alongside Dak Prescott, Wilson caught an impressive 73.3% of his targets.
  • Primarily used out of the slot, Wilson saw most of his targets in the short to intermediate ranges. His aDOT was only 10.7 yards.
  • Among 73 WRs with 60+ targets, Wilson’s 1.70 yards per route run ranked 35th.
  • He posted 4 top-36 weeks, highlighted by a WR2 finish in Week 18.
  • The 26-year-old signed a 3-year, $22 million deal with Miami in free agency. Total guarantees amounted to $12.75 million.
  • That type of money said he’d likely slot into the #2 role behind Jaylen Waddle. Then came the trade for Tyreek Hill...
  • Hill’s arrival — plus the return of franchise-tag TE Mike Gesicki — severely caps Wilson’s target ceiling.
  • New HC Mike McDaniel, a Kyle Shanahan understudy, at least brings some hope to an offense that’s underwent a lot of coaching turnover in recent years.
  • The offense will ultimately rest on the shoulders of Tua Tagovailoa, who's entering a make-or-break 3rd season.

Draft Sharks Bottom Line:

Wilson, just entering his prime years, seemed to land in a fine spot with new HC Mike McDaniel.

After Miami added Tyreek Hill, though, there simply aren’t enough targets to go around in an offense that still has a lot to prove. Barring an injury to Hill or Jaylen Waddle, Wilson’s unlikely to supply much fantasy value.

Preston Williams, WR CAR

11:36am EDT 8/30/22

Dolphins cut Williams

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.
