Wilson was expected to compete for a starting job opposite Jeremy Maclin.
"Me being still young, I have a lot to learn," Wilson said Tuesday. "I'm just trying to take advantage of this opportunity. We're still early in the season and OTAs and we still have camp to go. I'm just out there fighting, fighting for a spot."
It was Wilson's best game as a pro, putting up career highs in both receptions and receiving yards.
Wilson will look to build off of this game heading into Week 17 against the Chargers.
Wilson entered Week 16 against the Steelers with 122 yards on seven catches in his previous two games, and put together his best showing of the season Sunday. He hauled in five of seven passes for 87 yards, the latter of which led the team. He has 20 targets over the last three games to Dwayne Bowe's 15, after having just four in his first eight games.
Wilson was an undrafted rookie out of Georgia State, but he seems to bring a big-play ability the team has been missing, with receptions of 19, 19, 33, 48 and 22 yards over the last three games. At this point in the season, there is little reason for Fantasy owners to look his way, but owners in extremely deep Dynasty formats might want to scoop him up, given how little talent he has to compete with in Kansas City.
Wilson took 48 snaps - more than any other receiver on the team aside from Dwayne Bowe. He doubled his season output by catching four passes out of eight targets for 53 yards.
Jason Avant led
They'll face the Raiders in Week 15.
