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.

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.

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.

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.
