Jeff Wilson
23-Year-Old Running BackRB
2019 Fantasy Outlook
The 49ers backfield sustained its fair share of injuries last season, which allowed an undrafted rookie off the practice squad to earn some reps as a starter. Wilson proved to be capable in the six games (three starts) for which he was active, rushing for 266 yards (4.0 YPC) and gaining 92 receiving yards on 12 receptions. The 23-year-old will find it hard to crack the active roster in 2019, as the addition of Tevin Coleman, return of Jerick McKinnon and presence of Matt Breida and special-teams ace Raheem Mostert could leave Wilson on the outside looking in.

Returns from shoulder injury

June 17, 2019
Wilson (shoulder) participated in spring practices, Chris Biderman of The Sacramento Bee reports.
ANALYSIS
Wilson latched on with the 49ers as an undrafted rookie last year, ultimately starting two games in December and suffering a shoulder injury Week 17. He'll now face an uphill battle to stay on the 53-man roster, with Tevin Coleman, Jerick McKinnon (knee), Matt Breida (pectoral) and Raheem Mostert (forearm) all expected to have spots on the team. Wilson could land the No. 4 job if one of the aforementioned players suffers a rehab setback that forces him to injured reserve or the PUP list.
