2020 Fantasy Outlook
Wilson's 2019 story had a similar opening to that of his rookie 2018 season when he began the year on the 49ers' practice squad before being promoted to replace an injured player. The 24-year-old received fewer touches this go-around - 30 touches over 10 contests - but he emerged as a trusted goal-line back, hitting pay dirt four times from in close in his first two games following activation. The North Texas product saw his role reduced drastically once Tevin Coleman returned and Raheem Mostert exploded onto the scene. With both backs still under contract and Jerick McKinnon at the top of the depth chart, Wilson's role in San Francisco is uncertain now that he can no longer be stashed on the practice squad.

Elevated from COVID list

August 4, 2020
The 49ers removed Wilson (illness) from the reserve/COVID-19 list Tuesday, Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News reports.
ANALYSIS
Wilson only spent a handful of days on the list, so it's more likely that he met the caveat of recent exposure to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 -- rather than test positive himself -- upon his arrival to camp. He'll now focus his efforts on retaining a roster spot in a backfield headed up by Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman and Jerick McKinnon.

2020 NFL Team Previews: San Francisco 49ers
71 days ago
One quarter away from a Super Bowl title last season, the 49ers will be looking to start a tradition under coach Kyle Shanahan: regular deep playoff runs.
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.
