Albert Wilson (hip) is uncertain for Week 1.
The Dolphins say they have a plan to keep increasing Wilson's workload in practice, but it looks like it'll be a close call for the start of the regular season. For now, Wilson doesn't need to be drafted, but hopefully there's a more reliable timeline on his return to full strength before most people draft after the third or fourth week of the preseason.
Albert Wilson (hip) is expected to be ready for Week 1.
Wilson said to reporters, "there's no reason why I shouldn't be out there Week 1," which would be over ten months since the season-ending hip injury suffered on October 21. In his first year with the Dolphins, the dynamic offensive weapon scored four touchdowns in seven games, and he should start in the slot with DeVante Parker and Kenny Stills on the outside. For now, consider him a deep-league, late-round flier as we monitor his health in camp, but keep in mind that Miami is expected to throw a ton in 2019.
New Dolphins wide receivers coach is "really excited" about Albert Wilson.
Wide receivers coach Karl Dorrell, who is back with the Dolphins for a second stint, said of Wilson: "He was pretty dynamic (in 2018) wasn't he? He's a very unique player. I'm really excited about him." Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald went as far as saying you can "pencil Wilson in as a Week 1 starter" assuming he has no setbacks from his season-ending hip injury suffered last year. Beasley adds that former first-rounder DeVante Parker is "all but gone," and that Danny Amendola and Kenny Stills are uncertain to be back with the team in 2019. We're not sure Wilson is already a lock for a starting role in 2019 considering it's February and a new head coach will want players to earn their roles, but the former Chief was obviously extremely explosive when he was on the field last season. Wilson should probably be owned in all dynasty leagues right now.
The Dolphins have placed Albert Wilson (hip) on injured reserve.
This move was expected after the former Chief went down in Sunday's loss to the Lions, but he will reportedly not require surgery, which is a good sign. If he doesn't return in Week 16, the 26-year-old finishes his first season in Miami with 26 receptions for 391 yards and four touchdowns, and he will likely have a quality role in 2019.
Dolphins head coach Adam Gase said that Albert Wilson's season could be over.
Wilson injured his hip in Sunday's loss to the Lions, and it immediately sounded like a multi-week injury. Now, we can probably count on him to at least land on injured reserve, while Miami will make DeVante Parker active and give more looks to Jakeem Grant. Also, Danny Amendola should get more looks out of the slot, but none of the three are must-owns, even with Kenny Stills (groin) already ruled out for this week. Parker would be the best add in redraft formats, as the former first-round pick could breakout if given an opportunity.
Albert Wilson suffered a hip injury.
Wilson is reportedly undergoing more tests today, but his season is in danger. He's going to miss some time either way, which could potentially open the door for DeVante Parker, who has fallen out of the mix at receiver for Miami, to regain a role on offense. We'll update you when more is known on Wilson's injury.
Albert Wilson (leg) will not return against the Lions.
This is not a good sign, as this could be a serious injury for Wilson. Before leaving, Wilson had three receptions for 32 yards. More information on his status should become available in the next day or so.
Albert Wilson (knee) is questionable to return against the Lions.
Wilson was down for a bit after hurting his knee on a catch, but it's probably good news he's initially being called questionable instead of being immediately ruled out. We'll update you as more information becomes available on Wilson's status.
Albert Wilson scores two clutch touchdowns in Dolphins' win.
Wilson caught six passes for 155 yards and two touchdowns against the Bears, with both touchdowns coming in the fourth quarter to help tie the game and send it to overtime. The scores were both on short passes: a screen pass he took for 43 yards and a short pass over the middle he took for 75 yards. On both touchdowns, Wilson received great blocking down the field and zoomed through the defense for six. Wilson also had a clutch 74-yard touchdown against the Raiders back in Week 3, so he's been quite the pickup for Miami to this point. Still, he's difficult to trust in Week 7 fantasy lineups against the Lions. Consider him a boom/bust FLEX option.
Albert Wilson caught five passes for 43 yards in Sunday's loss to the Bengals.
Wilson looks like he will be a weekly factor as a top-three receiver alongside Kenny Stills and Danny Amendola, but there are more reliable fantasy options to consider. Miami will try to get back on track against the Bears in Week 6.
Albert Wilson handles five touches in loss to the Patriots.
Wilson caught four passes for 19 yards and added a two-yard rush in a 38-7 defeat. Miami failed to get going all afternoon, as Ryan Tannehill completed just 11 passes for the game. Wilson will be a better real-life player than fantasy option in Week 5 against the Bengals.
Albert Wilson throws and catches a touchdown in Week 3.
Wilson was a quarterback in high school, and he had the opportunity to throw a pass on a trick play for the Dolphins, hitting a wide-open Jakeem Grant, who did the rest for a 52-yard touchdown. Late in the fourth quarter, Wilson caught a quick pop pass and took it for a 74-yard touchdown. This was the type of game the Dolphins envisioned when they signed Wilson in the offseason. It's difficult to trust him as a consistent fantasy option, though.
Albert Wilson scores in Week 2.
Wilson scored his first touchdown as a Dolphin in the victory against the Jets, catching a 29-yard strike from Ryan Tannehill on a play that Wilson did a great job of coming back to the ball in the end zone. Overall, Wilson had three receptions for 37 yards and a touchdown and added two carries for eight yards. It's difficult to trust him in fantasy lineups.
Albert Wilson handles five touches in win over the Titans.
Wilson caught three passes for 31 yards and rushed twice for seven yards. We can probably expect a similar weekly output all year, even when DeVante Parker (finger) returns, so Wilson will be a better real-life player than fantasy option.
Adam Gase says Albert Wilson is an outside receiver.
According to Armando Salguero of the Miami Herald, Gase said "he's not a slot... nobody understands, I mean, it's a little frustrating. He's an outside guy." Gase went on to talk about Wilson's versatility and about how he played "all over the place" with the Chiefs and in college at Georgia State. The Dolphins don't have Wilson's role locked in, but it sounds like he'll play a bunch of different spots to get the ball in his hands—though the role might not be big enough to deliver consistent fantasy value in standard leagues. However, the contract (three years, $24 million) Wilson signed in the offseason could indicate Miami has big plans for him. He's someone to watch during preseason action. Meanwhile, Danny Amendola is locked in as the starting slot receiver for the Dolphins.
DeVante Parker, Kenny Stills, and Danny Amendola were the clear top three Dolphins receivers to start training camp.
The Miami Herald's Armando Salguero says that while it's only one practice, he is "having a hard time understanding how the Dolphins are going to maximize" Albert Wilson this season. Parker and Stills are likely locked in as the team's top two receivers, and Salguero has said a couple of times that Ryan Tannehill to Danny Amendola is going to be a "thing" in 2018, so Wilson could be the odd man out despite getting a three-year, $24 million contract this offseason. Things could change, but Wilson might be more of a special teams weapon and someone that mixes in on offense, which probably isn't enough for him to deliver significant fantasy value.
Albert Wilson officially signs with Miami.
Danny Amendola also signing with the Dolphins puts a slight dent into Wilson’s fantasy value, but the team is expected to manage Amendola’s snaps. Look for Gase to get the ball into Wilson’s hands a few times a game, and he could become a very good fantasy option in PPR leagues in particular.
Wide receiver Albert Wilson is expected to sign with Miami when free agency begins, according to Ian Rapoport.
The Dolphins are signing the former Chiefs receiver to a three-year, $24 million deal, according to Rapoport, which is a bit of a surprise and an excellent pay-day for Wilson. This move could indicate the Dolphins plan to still place a heavy emphasis on the slot position within Adam Gase's offense, and it's possible Wilson has a very similar role to the one Jarvis Landry had over the last few seasons. The deal cannot become official until tomorrow at 4:00 PM ET, but heading to the Dolphins could be a boon for Wilson's fantasy value.
Albert Wilson, Chiefs upset at home to the Titans in playoff opener.
Wilson caught two passes for 26 yards in the 22-21 loss. The 25-year-old had a chance to make a catch deep down the seam on a 4th-and-9, but it went off his hands before taking a big hit, and the Chiefs were never able to get the ball back as Derrick Henry ended things. If he's back in Kansas City next season, Wilson won't be a fantasy option to start 2018.
Albert Wilson (hamstring) is officially active today.
Wilson was fully expected to be out there against the Titans in the Wild Card Round, and it's now official. While he isn't a highly-reccomended option if you're playing playoff fantasy football, his presence in the lineup for the Chiefs should not be looked over. Wilson will look to make some big plays and help Kansas City advance to next weekend.
Albert Wilson (hamstring) is questionable for Saturday.
Wilson is fully expected to play in the playoff matchup against the Titans, but it looks like it won't be official until Saturday. While he's expected to be in the lineup for Kansas City, there are probably better options out there if you're playing in any fantasy playoff challenges.
Albert Wilson has career day in Week 17 win.
Wilson caught 10 passes for 147 yards as the focal point of the passing attack with Patrick Mahomes under center and the starters resting. Mostly a role player, Wilson finishes the regular season with career-highs across the board, catching 42 passes for 554 yards and three touchdowns. He will look to make some plays in the playoffs.
Albert Wilson drops a long touchdown in Week 16.
Wilson was targeted eight times against the Dolphins, catching three passes for 36 yards. But his most noticeable play of the day was a dropped touchdown on a perfect throw deep down the field from Alex Smith. The Chiefs still did win the game, but the drop should keep Wilson locked in and focused so it doesn't happen again.
Albert Wilson catches one pass in win over the Chargers.
It went for 15 yards as he made some defenders miss, but Wilson wasn't involved outside of that. He won't be a recommended fantasy option next week against the Dolphins.
Albert Wilson caught five passes for 72 yards in Sunday's win over the Raiders.
Both numbers were Wilson's highest of the season. He has a nice role for Kansas City, but Wilson should remain on the waiver wire heading into a matchup with the Chargers.
Albert Wilson catches three passes in Week 13.
Wilson gained 27 yards on his three receptions. He's a key contributor to Kansas City, but his role isn't big enough to be a reliable fantasy option.
Albert Wilson scores in Week 12.
Wilson was targeted seven times against the Bills, catching three passes for 36 yards and a touchdown. The score came on a bubble screen for 19 yards, and he got through a couple tacklers on his way to the end zone. Wilson is a solid presence at receiver for the Chiefs, but he's not a reliable fantasy option right now.
Albert Wilson (hamstring) has been ruled out this week.
Though Wilson doesn't put up huge numbers, this is a noteworthy loss for Alex Smith and Kansas City's offense. De'Anthony Thomas is likely to get some more snaps with Wilson out, but Tyreek Hill and Demarcus Robinson are the only recommended fantasy WR options versus the Cowboys. The Chiefs have a bye in Week 10, so hopefully Wilson is ready to go in Week 11 against the Giants.
Albert Wilson scores long touchdown against the Raiders.
Wilson, who returned after missing last week with a knee injury, caught a 63-yard touchdown on a pass deep down the middle that was tipped and went backwards to hit Wilson in stride as he ran to the end zone. It was Wilson's only reception of the day, and he didn't have any carries in the running game. He's a solid contributor in real life for Kansas City, but Wilson is not a recommended fantasy option right now.
Albert Wilson (knee) is active tonight against the Raiders.
Wilson is back after one game and gives a boost to Alex Smith and the Chiefs offense, though he's not a recommended fantasy option against Oakland.
Albert Wilson (knee) is officially questionable for tomorrow night.
He was able to get a limited participation in practice today, so hopefully he's able to play against the Raiders. Wilson wouldn't be a recommended fantasy option, but he'd be a boost for Alex Smith and the offense as a whole
Albert Wilson (knee) did not practice today.
It doesn't look like Wilson will be ready to go on Thursday against the Raiders, but we'll let you know of his practice status and official game status tomorrow.
Albert Wilson (knee) is inactive for the Chiefs.
Wilson was questionable for the game and he isn't ready to go against the Steelers. Travis Kelce should see a ton of passes headed his way with Wilson out for the game and Chris Conley already out for the year after his Achilles injury suffered last Sunday night.
Albert Wilson (knee) misses second straight day of practice.
Wilson might still get out there tomorrow, but missing the first two days of practice this week isn't a good sign. The Chiefs are already down Chris Conley (Achilles), so that'd be two of their top receivers out if Wilson is unable to play. Hopefully he can practice tomorrow.
Albert Wilson gets three targets in Week 5.
Wilson caught two passes for 18 yards against the Texans. With Chris Conley looking like he's done for the year with an Achilles injury, Wilson could be in line for more targets. But it might be more likely that Demarcus Robinson steps up on the outside to try and fill in for Conley. Wilson plays Pittsburgh next week, so we'll see if he gets an uptick in usage.
Albert Wilson makes clutch catch in Week 4 win.
Wilson caught all four targets, gaining 63 yards while adding a six-yard carry against the Redskins. He was mostly involved on plays to get the ball in his hands, but Wilson made an excellent play when he went up the field on a play late in the game when Alex Smith scrambled to the left, and he made a nice catch and held on while taking a big hit. The clutch reception helped set up Kansas City for a go-ahead field goal with a few seconds to go in the game. Wilson isn't a fantasy option, but he's a contributor in real life to the Chiefs.
Albert Wilson scores in Week 3 win over the Chargers.
It was a six-yard reception in the first quarter, and Wilson finished with three catches for 18 yards. He also rushed once for negative-four yards. He is a nice real-life player, but Wilson isn't a reliable fantasy option. He can stay on the waiver wire with a game against the Redskins next week.
Albert Wilson catches two passes in Week 2.
Wilson had 22 yards on his two receptions, while also adding a four-yard carry. On his other target of the game, Wilson could've had a huge gain on a slant route but Eagles corner Rasul Douglas made a nice play to deflect it. Wilson is off the fantasy radar for now.
Albert Wilson catches all five targets against the Patriots.
Wilson worked behind Tyreek Hill and Chris Conley as the team's number three receiver. The Chiefs tried to get the ball in Wilson's hands a few times, and he had five receptions for 37 yards. He and the Chiefs get the Eagles next week.
Albert Wilson starts for the Chiefs in opening preseason game.
He didn't make any catches, but Wilson appears to be the number three receiver behind Tyreek Hill and Chris Conley. During the game, Alex Smith said Wilson has had a great camp. Wilson will likely get most of the snaps as the third receiver in 2017, but he'll likely often swap in and out of the game with Demarcus Robinson and others.
Albert Wilson scores 55-yard touchdown in Chiefs' victory.
It was on a fake punt in the 3rd quarter to go up 27-16. Wilson ended up with four catches for 48 yards. Obviously, you can't rely on another fake punt for fantasy purposes; Wilson can stay on the waiver wire, especially with Jeremy Maclin expected back soon.
Albert Wilson catches two passes for six yards against the Broncos.
Wilson is simply a contributor to the Chiefs, not your fantasy team. He can stay on the waiver wire.
Albert Wilson catches second touchdown of the season in Chiefs’ loss.
Wilson caught four passes for 19 yards, including a three-yard score in the 4th quarter. He has just 180 yards this season, so Wilson can stay on the wire.
