Player Outlook
When Wilson signed a three-year deal for $22 million with the Dolphins, it looked like he could have a real opportunity to build on his career year in 2021. Then the Dolphins added Tyreek Hill. As things stand now, Wilson likely needs at least one injury before he'll become Fantasy relevant. You can leave him on the waiver wire in all but the deepest of leagues until then.

  • Dolphins' Cedrick Wilson: Catches on with Miami

    Wilson agreed Monday with the Dolphins on a three-year, $22.8 million contract, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. Wilson becomes the second Dallas receiver to head elsewhere in the past three days, as the Cowboys previously dealt Amari Cooper to the Browns on Saturday. According to Rapoport, Wilson will get $12.75 million guaranteed in the deal, with the big salary increase he'll be receiving not leaving Dallas with the flexibility to retain both him and Michael Gallup, who re-signed with the team on a five-year, $62.5 million deal. Wilson, who turned in a 45-602-6 receiving line on 61 targets while starting in four of his 16 appearances in 2021, is expected to slot in as the No. 3 receiver on Miami's depth chart behind Jaylen Waddle and DeVante Parker. The Dolphins also have Will Fuller (finger) on the roster, though he's a free agent and isn't expected to return to Miami.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Takes step forward in 2021

    Wilson secured 45 of 61 targets for 602 yards and six touchdowns while rushing twice for 11 yards across 16 appearances in 2021. Wilson struggled to make much of an impact during his first two professional seasons, but he was much more involved in the team's offense with Michael Gallup (knee) out for a significant portion of the season. The 26-year-old's target share was somewhat inconsistent on a week-to-week basis, but he topped 100 yards twice across his final six appearances of the regular season. Whether he's able to maintain his production once Gallup returns to the field in 2022 remains to be seen, but it was encouraging to see Wilson generate more production this year after he recorded just 235 receiving yards across his first two professional seasons.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Steps up with two scores

    Wilson caught five of six targets for 119 yards and two touchdowns in Saturday's 51-26 win over the Eagles. Wilson again saw his role expanded in the wake of Michael Gallup's (knee) season-ending injury and excelled with his newfound opportunity. In fact, Wilson's yardage output marked a career high, as he led the Cowboys in the category while tying Amari Cooper for the team's best catch tally. Notably, though, Wilson also found the end zone twice, scoring from 14 yards in the first quarter before hauling in a 24-yarder in the second. As Dallas now turns its attention toward the playoffs, Wilson's late-season emergence represents an encouraging development offensively.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Scores TD against Cardinals

    Wilson caught all six of his targets for 35 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 25-22 loss to the Cardinals. He also caught a two-point conversion. Moving into a more prominent role in the second half after Michael Gallup (knee) left the game, Wilson became a big part of the Cowboys' late comeback attempt, catching a two-yard TD from Dak Prescott early in the fourth quarter and then hauling in a two-point try after Amari Cooper's score inside the final five minutes. With Gallup's injury feared to be serious, Wilson will move back into the No. 3 wideout spot on the depth chart for Week 18 against the Eagles and into the playoffs.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Invisible in Week 15 win

    Wilson was not targeted during Sunday's 21-6 win over the Giants. Wilson only played one offensive snap with CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup all finally on the field together. The No. 4 wideout has proven an ability to step up when called upon, but it appears that he can safely be left off the fantasy radar as long as Dallas' receiver room remains at full strength.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Removed from COVID-19 list

    Wilson was removed from the reserve/COVID-19 list Friday. Wilson should be fine for his usual role as the No. 4 receiver this Sunday against the Giants. He took just nine snaps on offense in last week's win over Washington with Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup finally all at full strength at the same time.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Tests positive for COVID-19

    Dallas placed Wilson on the reserve/COVID-19 list Monday after he tested positive for the virus earlier in the day, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports. Wilson becomes the 20th Cowboys player to land on the list since August and the fourth receiver to test positive for the virus during that time. Unless Wilson is unvaccinated, he'll still be eligible to play Sunday against the Giants, but he'll first need to be asymptomatic for a 48-hour period and test negative for the virus on two occasions at least 24 hours apart. He most recently split work with Malik Turner as the No. 4 wideout behind CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup in Dallas' Week 14 win over Washington, finishing with two receptions for 18 yards across nine snaps on offense.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Two catches Sunday

    Wilson caught both his targets for 18 yards in Sunday's 27-20 win over Washington. With the Cowboys' top three wideouts (Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup) all healthy, there weren't many looks left over for Wilson. Wilson's fantasy value will remain minimal heading into a Week 15 clash with the Giants.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Cleared for Week 14

    Wilson (ankle) doesn't carry an injury designation into Sunday's game against Washington, Nicki Jhabvala of The Washington Post reports. Wilson was limited in practice Wednesday and Thursday but got the all-clear following a full session Friday. He'll be relegated to a depth role on offense with Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb and Michael Gallup all healthy, but Wilson could be tasked with taking on kick return duties, as usual return man Tony Pollard (foot) is questionable and hasn't practiced at all.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Returns to practice as limited

    Wilson (ankle) practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. Wilson picked up an ankle injury during Dallas' Thanksgiving Day loss to the Raiders, and the issue kept him out of practice last week and didn't allow him to play last Thursday at New Orleans. As such, his return to practice Wednesday marks his first activity since Week 12 prep. Wilson will have two more chances to be a full participant Thursday and/or Friday before the Cowboys potentially tab him with a designation ahead of Sunday's game at Washington.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Out this week

    Wilson (ankle) has been ruled out for Thursday's game in New Orleans, Ed Werder of ESPN reports. Wilson had season highs for targets (10) and yards (104) in the Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day loss to Las Vegas, handling a larger-than-usual role with both CeeDee Lamb (concussion) and Amari Cooper (COVID-19) unavailable. Wilson injured his ankle along the way however, while Lamb is now off the injury report and Cooper is listed as questionable but expected to play. Noah Brown is the likely No. 4 receiver with Wilson out, or potentially the No. 3 option in the event Cooper doesn't end up playing.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: No activity yet this week

    Wilson (ankle) was a non-participant at Tuesday's practice, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. In the Cowboys' last two games Wilson has earned more snaps than usual, logging a 63 percent share in Week 11 at Kansas City and 74 percent in Week 12 against the Raiders. The increased work was courtesy of Amari Cooper (COVID-19) sitting out both of them and CeeDee Lamb missing Thanksgiving's contest with a concussion. However, Wilson suffered an ankle injury late last Thursday and has yet to practice this week. With Lamb clear of the protocol for head injuries and practicing in full Monday and Tuesday, Wilson would be the No. 3 wide receiver, at best, Thursday in New Orleans, but his lack of activity is making him highly questionable to even suit up.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Sits out practice with ankle injury

    Wilson didn't participate in Monday's practice due to an ankle injury he sustained in the Cowboys' 36-33 overtime loss to the Raiders on Thanksgiving Day, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports. While CeeDee Lamb (concussion) and Amari Cooper (reserve/COVID-19 list) sat out the Week 12 contest, Wilson handled his second-largest offensive snap share (74 percent) of the season and established new bests in catches (seven), receiving yards (104) and targets (10) in the loss. Both Lamb and Cooper are expected to make it back for this week's Thursday game in New Orleans, so Wilson's status suddenly looks the murkiest among Dallas receivers. Wilson likely will need to return to practice in some capacity by Wednesday to have a shot at suiting up against the Saints.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Big day in losing effort

    Wilson caught seven of 10 targets for 104 yards in a 36-33 overtime loss to the Raiders on Thanksgiving. With Amari Cooper (COVID-19) and CeeDee Lamb (concussion) both sidelined, Wilson took advantage of the opportunity to lead the Cowboys in catches and targets while falling two yards shy of Michael Gallup for the team lead in receiving yards. The 100-yard performance was only the second of Wilson's career, but he could have a hard time maintaining a big role in the offense in Week 13 against the Saints as Cooper, at least, is expected to rejoin the lineup.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Four grabs in Sunday's loss

    Wilson caught four of seven targets for 36 yards in Sunday's 19-9 loss to Kansas City. With Amari Cooper (COVID-19) unavailable, Wilson moved back up to the No. 3 spot on the Cowboys' depth chart at wide receiver, and his role increased even further after CeeDee Lamb left the game due to a concussion. Unfortunately, a couple drops prevented him from fully taking advantage of his increased looks. With Dallas facing a short week before a Thanksgiving Day clash with the Raiders, Wilson figures to see elevated volume once again.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Likely to step in as top slot man

    Wilson is expected to serve as the Cowboys' top slot receiver Sunday against the Chiefs after Amari Cooper (illness) was placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Wilson has held down a regular spot in three-receiver sets this season alongside Cooper and CeeDee Lamb, but he was limited to just one snap in last week's blowout win over the Falcons after Michael Gallup (calf) made his return from a seven-game absence. With Cooper now sidelined for both this weekend's game and the Cowboys' Thanksgiving Day contest against the Raiders in Week 12 following his positive test for the virus, Wilson will benefit from a temporary bump in playing time. Lamb and Gallup are still likely to handily outpace Wilson in terms of snaps and targets while serving as the Cowboys' boundary receivers the next two weeks, but Wilson could get enough volume to make himself relevant in deeper leagues. While Gallup was sidelined Weeks 2 through 9, Wilson turned in a 16-256-3 receiving line on 24 targets.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Active in Week 10

    Wilson (shoulder) is listed as active Sunday against the Falcons. In advance of this contest, Wilson's activity was contained to one limited session Friday. With the fourth-year pro available, the Cowboys will have their top four wide receivers together for the first time since Week 1. Michael Gallup missed seven games as a result of a strained left calf, but following his activation from IR on Saturday, he'll join Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb as the team's top trio at the position. As a result, targets could be hard to come by for Wilson, who is set to take a hit in offensive usage.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Questionable for Week 10

    Wilson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports. Fellow wide receivers Amari Cooper (LP, hamstring) and CeeDee Lamb (FP, ankle) also were listed on Cowboys injury reports this week, but both have been cleared to play Sunday. The same can't be said for Wilson yet, but he did get back on the practice field Friday in a limited capacity after opening Week 10 prep with back-to-back absences. His status may not be known until 90 minutes before Sunday's 1:00 p.m. kickoff, but even if he's available Wilson is in line to drop from third to fourth on the depth chart with the team expected to activate Michael Gallup (calf) from injured reserve.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: Misses practice again

    Wilson (shoulder) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports. Wilson's shoulder injury will keep him off the field for the second day in a row and leaves his status for Sunday's game against the Falcons in question heading into Dallas' final practice of the week Friday. Even if Wilson gains clearance to play this weekend, he could be in line for a smaller role within the Dallas receiving corps. Michael Gallup (calf) appears on pace to return from injured reserve this week and end his seven-game absence, and he could immediately displace Wilson as the team's No. 3 wideout behind Amari Cooper (hamstring) and CeeDee Lamb.

  • Cowboys' Cedrick Wilson: No practice due to shoulder issue

    Wilson didn't practice Wednesday due to a shoulder injury, Jon Machota of The Athletic reports. Wilson's absence coincides with the expected return of Michael Gallup (calf) from injured reserve ahead of a Week 10 matchup with the Falcons. With Gallup sidelined since Week 2, Wilson has served as the team's No. 3 wide receiver behind Amari Cooper (hamstring) and CeeDee Lamb (ankle), hauling in 16 of 24 targets for 256 yards and three touchdowns in seven games. Wilson also had two carries for 11 yards and completed two of two passes for 57 yards during that stretch. Wilson will have two more practices to fit in some work before week's end.
