49ers RB Jeff Wilson popped off for 17 carries, 120 yards and 1 score in Week 5. Tevin Coleman mixed in for 8 carries, with 5 of them and a garbage time TD coming deep in the 4th. Coleman did catch a 1st quarter TD, however, while he out-targeted Wilson 3-2. Elijah Mitchell (knee) remains at least a couple of weeks away from returning to action. So Wilson — who’s hit 74+ yards in 4 straight — will remain a viable RB2 in the short-term. Next up is a road matchup with Atlanta.
Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson Jr. (illness) was a limited practice participant on Wednesday. Fellow RB Raheem Mostert (thumb) did not practice. The health of the Dolphins' backfield will be of great interest ahead of Sunday's Wild Card contest vs. the Bills, particularly with QB Tua Tagovailoa already ruled out for this game. Check back tomorrow for more information regarding this duo of backs.
Dolphins Jeff Wilson Jr. (hip) is active for today’s game vs. the Packers. He was limited in practice all week and listed as questionable, so it’s unclear how big a role he’ll play in this one. Consider Wilson a risk/reward RB3 in the plus matchup. RB Raheem Mostert remains the best bet in Miami’s backfield. RB Myles Gaskin is a healthy scratch.
Dolphins RB Jeff Wilson Jr. (hip) practiced in a limited fashion all week and is officially listed as questionable for Week 16. An absence from Wilson Jr. would give a jolt to the fantasy value of RB Raheem Mostert. Though Mostert rested for most of the week, only logging limited participation once this week, he'll be good to go as the Dolphins' RB1 presumably. The Packers' defense presents the 9th-best matchup in adjusted fantasy points allowed to RBs this season. Consider Mostert a RB2 with upside, and be sure to check pre-game inactives for Wilson Jr.'s status.
Dolphins HC Mike McDaniel said Monday that RB Jeff Wilson Jr. was close to playing Saturday night against the Bills, according to the team website. He called the RB day-to-day going forward. We'll track Wilson's status but would bet on him playing Sunday against the Packers. We'd still bet on RB Raheem Mostert leading the backfield work, but Wilson would almost certainly cut further into the split than remaining Miami RBs did at Buffalo.
