San Francisco 49ers RB Jeffery Wilson faces an uphill climb for a
roster spot with RBs Tevin Coleman, Matt Breida, Jerick McKinnon
and Raheem Mostert in the crowded backfield.
Huddle Up: Wilson posted 266 rushing yards in six games with two starts in
2018, and he also added 98 yards on 12 receptions. If everyone is
healthy and the 49ers can't find a way to keep him, Wilson won't
take long to find another job. He is a risky fantasy option
heading into 2019 due to his murky outlook.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jeffery Wilson rushed 11 times for 27 and
caught one pass for six yards in a 14-9 loss to the Chicago Bears

San Francisco 49ers RB Jeffery Wilson finished with seven carries
for 46 yards in a 26-23 win over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 15.

misses time, Wilson will vault into flex territory.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jeffery Wilson rushed 23 times for 90
yards and caught one pass for six yards in a 20-14 win over the

Huddle Up: If Matt Breida continues to miss time, Wilson should be a solid
option as a volume-based flex play.

and added eight catches for 73 more yards in Week 13 versus the
Huddle Up: Wilson made his NFL debut in Week 12 with seven carries for 33
yards, so it wasn't as if owners should have seen this coming.
Head coach Kyle Shanahan revealed after the game that Wilson saw
more time because Matt Breida aggravated his ankle injury in
pregame warmups. It appears owners now have someone they can
handcuff Breida to for the remainder of the season. He should be
a top waiver add this week and owners shouldn't be surprised if
maintains flex value the rest of the way.
