Wilkins recorded 336 yards and a touchdown on 60 rushing attempts and added 85 receiving yards on 16 catches while playing in 16 games in 2018. Wilkins joined the Colts as a fifth-round pick in 2018 and showed some promise to start the year. His workload declined in the second half, leading to his modest stats. He ended the season as the No. 3 running back behind Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines, and he'll need to work his way up the depth chart in 2019 in order to have much fantasy value.
Wilkins (knee/ankle) was a full practice participant Wednesday, Andrew Walker of the Colts' official site reports. Dealing with a pair of minor issues, Wilkins should be fine to fill his usual role as the No. 3 running back for Saturday's wild-card game in Houston. He's unlikely to see more than a handful of snaps unless Marlon Mack or Nyheim Hines suffers an injury during the contest.
Wilkins (knee/ankle) is listed as a limited participant on Tuesday's estimated injury report. With Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines healthy, Wilkins won't have much of a role in the game plan for Saturday's playoff battle against Houston. The rookie fifth-round pick played 18 or fewer snaps on offense in each contest after Week 4.
Wilkins didn't have any carries or targets in Sunday's win over the Giants. Wilkins has seen his role drop off over the last half of the season. Sunday marked the third time this season he hasn't carried the ball or been targeted in the passing game. Barring injuries to Marlon Mack and Nyheim Hines, it seems unlikely that Wilkins will have much fantasy value, if any, in Week 17 against the Titans.
Wilkins caught his lone target for six yards in Sunday's win over Dallas. The Colts ran the ball 39 times in Sunday's grind-it-out win against the Cowboys, but Wilkins saw only two offensive snaps. Marlon Mack continues to dominate the carry count with Nyheim Hines still serving in a secondary role, leaving little playing time for Wilkins while both remain healthy.
