Shark Bites

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.

Recent Shark Bites

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.

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 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.
