2021 Fantasy Outlook
Wilson was one of the beneficiaries of the Cowboys' all-offense approach early in the season, catching two touchdowns Week 3 and throwing one to Dak Prescott on a trick play Week 5. Once Prescott was lost for the season, however, Wilson's role evaporated. As a versatile No. 4 receiver in a potent aerial attack, Wilson could have the occasional big game again in 2021, but it would likely take an injury to one of Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb or Michael Gallup for the 2018 sixth-round pick to see consistent targets.

Four grabs in OT win
WRDallas Cowboys
October 18, 2021
Wilson caught four of seven targets for 42 yards in Sunday's overtime win over the Patriots.
ANALYSIS
While offensive coordinator Kellen Moore didn't use Wilson on any gadget plays this time around, the third-year receiver instead set new season highs in catches, targets and receiving yards. With the Cowboys on their bye Week 7, Michael Gallup (calf) might be ready to come off IR for a Week 8 game in Minnesota, but Wilson still should have some role in the offense even once Gallup is back.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2020
2019
2018
A sixth-round pick in 2018, Wilson has battled injuries his first two years in the NFL but did make his debut last season, catching five of eight targets for 46 yards over six games. His athleticism still makes him intriguing and his experience in Kellen Moore's offensive scheme should allow him to secure a depth role in Dallas, but targets will be hard to find barring an injury to the likes of Amari Cooper or Michael Gallup.
Wilson spent his entire rookie season on IR with a shoulder injury, and a concussion suffered in the first preseason game of 2019 makes him a long shot to win a roster spot once again despite his athletic tools as a receiver.
A 2018 sixth-round pick out of Boise State, Wilson joins a Cowboys depth chart that saw over 200 targets head out the door with Jason Witten's retirement and Dez Bryant's release. Wilson doesn't have the speed or physicality to make an immediate impact in the NFL, but his size and athleticism give him some versatility and red-zone appeal, and the converted high-school quarterback should only get more polished in his routes once he gains experience. Wilson will take a redshirt for his rookie season after suffering a shoulder injury during training camp, but he's expected to have surgery in August and should be ready for the Cowboys' offseason program next year.
