Updating a previous story, Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson was officially placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list Wednesday, Aug. 5.
Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson informed the team he's opting out for the 2020 season.
Fantasy Spin: This news opens up a potential starting spot for Preston Williams (knee), who the team has praised in his recovery from a torn ACL. Williams should be monitored, and he's a sneaky WR5 grab right now.
Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson appears to be the leading candidate for the slot receiver job this upcoming season.
Fantasy Spin: Wilson has dealt with injuries over the last several season and finished 2019 with 351 yards and one touchdown. He could be a reliable target in the passing game if he can stay healthy but probably is not more than a late round pick in fantasy drafts.
Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson is one of several Dolphins players working out with longtime trainer Pete Bommarito this offseason, and Bommarito says it has been Wilson's best. 'Wait until you see him run,' Bommarito said. 'This is the fastest I have seen him. Not only does he have that bad-ass shifty side and quick feet, but you look at his second gear and he looks spectacular. You will see the second gear this year.'
Fantasy Spin: Wilson caught 43 of 62 targets for 351 yards and one touchdown across 13 games in 2019 after being limited to just seven games in 2018. He'd likely benefit from rookie QB Tua Tagovailoa getting the starting nod, as he would be the safety blanket in a pass-heavy offense.
Miami Dolphins wide receiver Albert Wilson will be around for the 2020 season after restructuring his contract. He was set to make $9.4 million next season but instead of cutting him, the Dolphins reworked the deal with Wilson. He'll receive $3 million and $1 million more in possible incentives. He hauled in 43 receptions for 351 receiving yards and one touchdown through 13 games last season. He'll compete with Allen Hurns in training camp for a starting spot next season out of the slot. He could have useful games here and there in deep PPR leagues if he's starting in the slot, but he'll likely be inconsistent as the third option behind DeVante Parker and Preston Williams.
Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson restructured his contract Tuesday, May 5, which is now worth a base value of $3 million with $1 million more in potential incentives.
