San Francisco 49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr. (knee) recently underwent surgery for a torn meniscus, according to sources Tuesday, May 25. He's expected to be sidelined for 4-6 months and miss the beginning of the 2021 NFL season.
Huddle Up: RB Raheem Mostert is the projected Week 1 start for San Francisco but the fantasy stocks of Trey Sermon and Elijah Mitchell also rise in deeper leagues. Both will be worth drafting as handcuffs for Mostert and also in hopes they get a share of the passing-game work.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr. signed a one-year contract Tuesday, Jan. 26, but financial terms weren't disclosed. He was scheduled to be a restricted free agent at the end of the league year.
Huddle Up: Wilson totaled 733 yards from scrimmage and 10 combined rushing and receiving touchdowns in 12 games while making three starts in the 2020 season. He could be an RB2 or 3 option in 2021 fantasy drafts depending on how many others return to the 49ers' backfield.

He split the carries with Raheem Mostert, and that will likely continue into Week 15 against the Dallas Cowboys.

San Francisco 49ers RB Jeff Wilson Jr. rushed seven times for 47 yards in Week 13 against the Buffalo Bills and he added two receptions for 12 yards on five targets.

In other words, Wilson and Mostert split the backfield touches, with Tevin Coleman also seeing two carries while going backwards. Fantasy owners never want to see a timeshare, as it's maddening. The 49ers will face the Washington Football Team in Week 14.
