2020 Fantasy Outlook
Wilson hasn't lived up to the three-year, $24 million deal he inked with the Dolphins in 2018, but agreeing to restructure heading into the contract's final season should help him stick to the roster. A significant hip injury hobbled the slot man for the first 13 games of 2019, as he played fewer than half of the team's offensive snaps on all but three occasions and never surpassed 55 percent of snaps, but he managed to end on a high note during the final three games of the season. From Week 15 to 17 the speedy wideout finally handled a starting snap share and developed a connection with Ryan Fitzpatrick, securing 17 of 23 targets for 197 yards. He's favorite for the slot receiver role in 2020. Read Past Outlooks

Opt Out
August 5, 2020
Wilson announced Wednesday via his personal Twitter account that he will opt out of the 2020 season.
ANALYSIS
Wilson's decision to sit out the upcoming season comes one day after fellow wideout Allen Hurns informed the Dolphins he wouldn't play in 2020. The Dolphins are now left with a shaky group behind DeVante Parker at wide receiver, as Preston Williams is coming back from an ACL tear and nobody else among the group has ever caught more than 23 passes in a season. Isaiah Ford and Jakeem Grant should now be in the mix for a starting job, while the 28-year-old Wilson will look to rejoin the Dolphins next offseason.

2014
Wilson was off to a strong start through seven games - 15.0 YPC, 11.2 YPT, three receptions of 40-plus yards, four touchdowns - before a torn labrum and fractured hip caused him to miss the rest of the season. Wilson did not require surgery, but he was still sidelined into May when the Dolphins started OTAs. Assuming he makes it back for the beginning of training camp, Wilson figures to be the team's primary slot receiver while Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker take reps outside. At 5-9, 186, Wilson is small but also fast and athletic - 4.43 40, 123-inch broad jump, 37.5-inch vertical. He'll be playing with a new quarterback (Josh Rosen or Ryan Fitzpatrick) and a new coaching staff, trying to get up to speed while rehabbing from a serious injury. But there is no way the environment could be worse than last year, and Wilson could lead the Dolphins in targets.
Playing primarily out of the slot, the former Chiefs receiver posted a career-high stat line of 42-554-3 in 2017. Wilson is poised to fill an obvious need for the Dolphins, who traded away Jarvis Landry after a whopping 161-target season. Miami's receiver room now includes DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola, but Wilson's versatility makes it conceivable that he could find snaps on the outside if another pass-catcher looks better in the slot. Either way, Wilson is on track to earn himself a solid role in Miami's offense, where there's opportunity for him to become a modest weekly fantasy contributor.
Wilson's career trajectory has trended downward over the past few seasons. After emerging to start across from Jeremy Maclin for part of 2015, finishing with 35 grabs for 451 yards and two touchdowns, he was bypassed by the likes of Chris Conley and Tyreek Hill last season. The 5-9 wideout signed a one-year contract as a restricted free agent in the offseason but could test the open market next year if he so chooses. In the meantime, though, Wilson is a good bet to surpass his 31 receptions for 279 yards and two touchdowns from 2016 due to the release of Maclin in early June.
Wilson hung on to the No. 2 wide receiver spot behind Jeremy Maclin in 2015, but that resulted in just 451 receiving yards on 35 receptions (57 targets) and two receiving touchdowns. The Chiefs spiced things up in the offseason by adding multiple veteran wideouts (Rod Streater and Mike Williams) and a couple more in the 2016 NFL Draft (Demarcus Robinson and Tyreek Hill). Second-year wideout Chris Conley also returns, leaving a jumble to battle it out for the second slot. Wilson likely enters camp the favorite to keep the job, but certainly isn't locked in.
Wilson - an undrafted rookie in 2014 - didn’t see the field much for three-quarters of the season, recording just four catches for 51 yards over the first 13 weeks. However, the youngster developed a strong rapport with quarterback Alex Smith late in the season, serving as the team’s second wideout behind Dwayne Bowe and racking up 209 receiving yards in Weeks 14-16. While the Chiefs added Jeremy Maclin through free agency and spent a third-round draft pick on former Georgia wide receiver Chris Conley, Wilson enters 2015 as the incumbent and favorite to win the second wideout spot again.
Signed as an undrafted rookie free agent, Wilson enters the season with an opportunity to compete for playing time in the slot for the Chiefs and perhaps as a returner.
