Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

The 49ers re-signed Jeff Wilson Jr.

This is not a surprise, as Wilson is another year removed from his knee injury and is comfortable in Kyle Shanahan's offense. The veteran running back will be strong depth behind starter Elijah Mitchell in 2022.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson (ankle) ruled out for the remainder of the game.

Wilson went down in the first half, so JaMycal Hasty will handle pure running back duties behind Elijah Mitchell when Deebo Samuel isn’t in the backfield.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

The 49ers activated Jeff Wilson Jr. (knee) from the PUP list.

Wilson made quick progress in recent days, looked good in practice this week after returning, and might make his season debut tomorrow against the Cardinals. We'll see what happens, but there's been an indication that Wilson might be up for the game if Elijah Mitchell (rib) is inactive. The Niners play in the late-afternoon window, so be sure to have backup plans in mind for your Week 9 fantasy lineup if you are planning to use Wilson.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson has a torn meniscus.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo says Wilson underwent surgery and is expected to miss four-to-six months, so this will be something that almost certainly forces him to miss time. This is a really tough break for Wilson, who came on very strong at the end of last season and looked poised to compete for a big role in the San Francisco backfield. Now, things become clearer, with Raheem Mostert and third-round rookie Trey Sermon set to lead the way to begin the regular season. Wilson will likely be a candidate to start the year on the PUP list, which would force him to miss at least the first six weeks of the season. And the six-month end of the recovery period would force Wilson to miss most of the year. Wilson will look to hit rehab hard and get back on the field as soon as possible, but it's difficult to count on him as a strong fantasy asset in redraft leagues to open 2021.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

The 49ers signed Jeff Wilson Jr. to a one-year deal.

Wilson could only become a restricted free agent this offseason, so it's not surprising that he's just re-signing with the Niners now after a very strong end to his 2020 campaign. Wilson did an excellent job in the lead back role in Kyle Shanahan's offense over the final few games of the year, and he ended the season with 126 carries for 600 rushing yards and seven rushing touchdowns along with 13 receptions for 133 receiving yards and three receiving touchdowns in 12 games. Wilson figures to have a shot to lead San Francisco's backfield next season.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) had his practice window activated.

Wilson has 21 days to practice, and when the window ends he must either be activated from injured reserve or spend the rest of the season there. With Raheem Mostert (ankle) also getting designated for a return, the Niners are getting healthier at running back coming off the bye.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson (ankle) has been placed on IR.

This was expected, and Wilson will now miss at least three games with a high-ankle sprain. There is a chance he is behind all three of Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman, and Jerick McKinnon when he returns.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson Jr. suffered a high-ankle sprain.

This isn't great news, but it's probably better than what it could have been after Wilson was injured and eventually carted to the locker room earlier during the Niners' win over the Patriots. Like teammate Raheem Mostert, who suffered a high-ankle sprain last Sunday, Wilson will likely be headed to injured reserve to miss a minimum of three games. Tevin Coleman's potential return comes at a good time for San Francisco.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) has officially been ruled out for the rest of the game.

Wilson had an outstanding afternoon leading the San Francisco rushing attack, so this is unfortunate that his day ends and that he'll potentially be out for a while with this injury. Before leaving, Wilson had 17 carries for 112 yards and three touchdowns along with two receptions for eight yards.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson leaves game with apparent ankle injury.

Wilson slowly limped off the field following his third score of the game, and the Niners may need to turn to JaMycal Hasty and Jerick McKinnon the rest of the way.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson Jr. (calf) is officially inactive for Sunday night.

The Niners have a deep running back group, and Wilson is being held out while dealing with his calf injury. Raheem Mostert and Jerick McKinnon will get most of the work for the San Francisco backfield tonight against the Rams.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson Jr. (calf) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday night.

It's tough to trust Wilson in Week 6 fantasy lineups, but his official game status will be known by Sunday evening.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

The 49ers placed Jeff Wilson Jr. on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Wilson either has COVID-19 or has come in close contract to someone with the virus. Keep in mind that if he does have the virus, it could mean that he won't catch it again, as has been a thought (though not 100% proven).

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

The 49ers tendered Jeff Wilson Jr.

Wilson is an exclusive rights free agent, and it would be a surprise if he's playing anywhere other than San Francisco in 2020. Wilson mixes in as a receiving threat and red-zone option in Kyle Shanahan's offense.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson Jr. is officially being evaluated for a head injury.

Wilson was injured trying to make a tackle, but it was good to see him get up and walk off under his own power. Wilson appeared to be in good spirits on the sidelines, but he's probably unlikely to return in a blowout. Before leaving, Wilson had two carries for six yards.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

The Niners have promoted Jeff Wilson to the active roster.

This move was expected, as the Niners had just two healthy running backs on the roster. Wilson played well when given the opportunity last season, but he’s not a recommended Week 2 fantasy option behind Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

The 49ers signed Jeff Wilson Jr. to the practice squad.

Wilson played well when he got a chance last year for the Niners, so this isn't surprising. The second-year running back isn't on the redraft radar at the moment, but he'll be worth monitoring if he gets called up to the active roster.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

The 49ers have released Jeff Wilson.

Wilson showed some flashes last year when injuries hit San Francisco's backfield, but even with Jerick McKinnon (knee) on IR, the team is set at running back. The 23-year-old shouldn't have trouble landing on someone's active roster or practice squad.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson Jr. will miss 1-2 weeks with a calf injury.

Wilson suffered the calf injury in practice on Monday and has missed the last couple of practices, but Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan says he'll miss a week or two. With Jerick McKinnon (knee) still on the PUP list, San Francisco is lucky to be extremely deep at running back, and they might not need to add anyone else to the backfield mix even with two guys down right now.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson Jr. leaves Week 17 with a shoulder injury.

Before leaving, Wilson carried three times for nine yards. The undrafted rookie running back's season ends with 66 carries for 266 yards and 12 receptions for 98 yards in six games. Wilson played well and took advantage of his late-season opportunity, and he might be the favorite for the team's No. 3 running back behind Jerick McKinnon and Matt Breida in 2019.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson Jr. gets 13 touches in Week 16.

Wilson carried 11 times for 27 yards and caught two passes for 11 yards versus the Bears. The undrafted rookie operated as the lead back after starter Matt Breida left with another ankle injury, but this was a tough task against Chicago’s elite defense. If Breida remains out in the season finale, Wilson would offer at least FLEX value for Week 17 championship lineups.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson rushed seven times for 46 yards in Sunday's win over the Seahawks.

Wilson also lost a fumble, but the 49ers stuck with him late into the contest, and he helped set up the game-winning field goal in overtime. The rookie should continue splitting touches with Matt Breida next week, but fantasy owners should look elsewhere if possible as Chicago's stout defense comes to San Francisco.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson Jr. gets 23 carries in Week 14.

Wilson gained 90 yards on his 23 attempts and added one reception for six yards against the Broncos. The undrafted rookie running back is basically a workhorse right now, and he'll likely continue as such next week against the Seahawks if Matt Breida (ankle) remains out. Wilson just had 134 total yards against Seattle in Week 13, and he'll be a good option for the second week of the fantasy playoffs.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson handles 23 touches in loss to Seattle.

Wilson rushed 15 times for 61 yards, also adding eight receptions (on nine targets) for 73 yards. An undrafted free agent out of North Texas, Wilson has handled 31 touches for 175 yards over the past two weeks, and he should be on the radar in all leagues after Matt Breida (ankle) went down again in Week 13. The rest-of-season schedule won't be easy (v DEN, v SEA, v CHI, @ LAR), but if Breida—who plays through everything—ends up missing time, Wilson could return low-end RB2 value down the stretch.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson (foot) has returned for the Niners.

Wilson is back in the game to start the second half, and it'll be interesting to see the type of workload he gets after ten touches in the first half.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson's injury is a foot injury.

He's officially questionable to return. We'll update you if he re-enters the game.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson leaves game with apparent leg injury.

Wilson was hurt on a screen pass that he took for a nice gain before getting hit in the leg. He's now headed to the locker room, but hopefully he's able to return to the game. The Niners have basically been treating Wilson like a workhorse today, giving him ten touches in less than a half.

Jeff Wilson | 49ers RB

Jeff Wilson gets seven carries in NFL debut.

With Alfred Morris a healthy scratch, Wilson received an opportunity behind starter Matt Breida. The undrafted rookie from North Texas rushed seven times for 33 yards and added one reception for eight yards. He's someone to keep an eye on as a running back in Kyle Shanahan's offense, but he doesn't need to be owned in standard redraft leagues.
