2020 Fantasy Outlook
Wilkins finished the 2019 season with 51 carries for 307 yards and two TDs while catching seven passes for 43 yards in 14 regular-season games, but his role this season figures to diminish, with Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines still around and the Colts having taken promising Jonathan Taylor in the second round of April's draft. In that context, Wilkins slots in as the Colts' No. 4 back, which gives him no clear path to touches until or unless injuries hit the team's backfield. Read Past Outlooks

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2019
2018
Wilkins had his moments in his first NFL campaign last year, running for a season-high 61 yards on 10 carries Week 2 and busting out a 53-yard dash on his only tote Week 10, but for the most part he found himself taking a back seat to Marlon Mack and fellow rookie Nyheim Hines in 2018. Wilkins' best asset is his speed, but a lack of power or elusiveness means he needs to be schemed open rather than having the ability to create extra yards for himself. Fortunately, that's not a big problem on a Colts squad with one of the league's best offensive lines, but the Mississippi product needs to improve as a receiver and pass blocker if he wants to get on the field more often. Indianapolis also added Spencer Ware to the backfield mix this offseason, putting more pressure on Wilkins to take a step forward. A poor showing this summer could place the second-year pro on the roster bubble in Indianapolis.
A fifth-round pick in the 2018 draft, Wilkins broke out in his final season at Mississippi, leaving would-be tacklers in the dust to gain yards in big chunks. More than 10 percent of his runs last year went for at least 15 yards, a better rate than Alvin Kamara's NFL-leading 9.2 percent. At 6-1, 217, Wilkins doesn't run with much power and doesn't gain many yards after contact. He's also unproven as a receiver and his pass-protection skills need a lot of work, potentially limiting his snaps as a pro. Indianapolis heads into the season without an established lead back, opening the door for Wilkins to carve out a big role with an impressive training camp, but he could just as easily find himself stuck firmly on the bench behind Marlon Mack, Robert Turbin and Nyheim Hines.
