Wilson returns to Kansas City after topping the 30-catch mark both of the last two seasons. Through his first three years, the 24-year-old boasts 990 receiving yards, which on average accurately reflects his status as the team's fourth receiver and fifth option in the passing game, where tight end Travis Kelce leads the way.
Wilson caught just one pass for 42 yards in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Chargers.
Wilson snagged just two passes on four targets over the last four weeks of the season and caught just 31 passes for 279 yards and two touchdowns on the season. With his contract set to expire in the offseason, the third-year wideout is no lock to receive a contract extension in Kansas City given his placement on the depth chart. Regardless of where he winds up playing next season, it's unlikely Wilson will gain fantasy relevance unless injuries surface ahead of him on the depth chart.
Wilson has officially dropped massively down the depth chart. He played fewer snaps than four of his fellow receivers (Jeremy Maclin, Chris Conley, Tyreek Hill and De'Anthony Thomas) in Sunday's contest and doesn't figure to have much value the remainder of the season.
Wilson did not catch a pass in Thursday's game against the Raiders and only played a total of 11 snaps.
Wilson's playing time increased due to Jeremy Maclin's (groin) extended stay on the sidelines, but Maclin's return to action heavily impacted Wilson's usage. he sits behind Maclin, Chris Conley and rookie Tyreek Hill on the pecking order, making him nearly unownable in the majority of fantasy formats.
To go along with grabbing all four of his targets for 48 yards, Wilson scored on a fake punt in Sunday's win over the Raiders, carrying it 55 yards to the end zone.
Wilson totaled 103 yards, easily a high on the season for the third-year receiver. While another 55-yard touchdown run is unlikely, 48 yards receiving is the second-highest total on the season for Wilson. He has also now caught four passes in three of the team's last four games. Quarterback Alex Smith is seemingly developing somewhat of a rapport with the 24-year-old, but expect a reduction in his role when the injured Jeremy Maclin (groin) is able to return. Wilson will take on the Raiders' secondary Thursday night.
