Jeff Wilson, RB, San Francisco 49ers
With Raheem Mostert (ankle) out and on IR, Wilson had 22 carries for 183 yards along with a 21-yard touchdown reception against the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday. A brief exit after taking a helmet-to-helmet is worth watching remembering heading toward Week 17, but at this point it seems Wilson will be good to go as the 49ers’ lead back in the regular season finale. He has scored a touchdown in three straight games now.
In Week 17 the 49ers will take on the Seattle Seahawks, who entered Week 16 as a bottom-10 fantasy defense against running backs with 12 rushing scores allowed to the position.
Be sure to keep an eye out for any possible residual effects from Wilson’s head injury as the coming week goes on. But if you need a viable RB2 with RB1 upside for Week 17, Wilson is a nice option.
