Wilson's practice reps were monitored by the Chiefs this week, as he progressed from a DNP on Tuesday to full participation Thursday. A season-best 10 catches for 147 yards in Week 17 was made possible by absences from Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce, so Wilson will be the fourth option, at best, in the passing attack, with versatile running back Kareem Hunt also expected to handle his workhorse role.
Wilson (hamstring) is listed as questionable for Saturday's playoff game against the Titans.
Given that Wilson was listed as a full practice participant Thursday, we'd expect him to be a go this weekend. Wilson exploded for 10 catches on 11 targets for 147 yards in Week 17, but his high profile in the Chiefs offense last Sunday was the result of wideout Tyreek Hill and tight end Travis Kelce sitting out the contest. Hill and Kelce will be back in the mix this week, plus running back Kareem Hunt is in line to see his normal allotment of snaps, thus limiting Wilson's fantasy ceiling against the Titans.
Wilson (hamstring) was held out of practice Tuesday, Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star reports.
Wilson took advantage of a receiving corps sans Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce in Week 17, hauling in 10 of 11 passes from Patrick Mahomes for 147 yards. During the eventual 27-24 win at Denver, Wilson picked up a sore hamstring in the latter stages, according to Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site. The injury may impact Wilson's practice reps all week, but Thursday's injury report will give an indication of his potential to play Saturday versus the Titans.
Wilson caught 10 passes on 11 targets for 147 yards during Sunday's regular-season finale against the Broncos, totaling 42 grabs for 554 yards and three scores on the season. However, Sam McDowell of the Kansas City Star reports that he is expected to sit out practice Tuesday due to a minor hamstring injury.
Wilson finished off 2018 with his best showing due to the absence of both Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce from the gameday roster, and potentially the presence of rookie Patrick Mahomes under center. When 2017 ends for the Chiefs, Wilson will become an unrestricted free agent and it wouldn't be surprising if he's headed elsewhere given the team's depth at the wide receiver position. If he does return, it's interesting to note that Mahomes likely will be at the helm for Kansas City, with Sunday's breakout displaying the rapport between the two.
Wilson will be seeing targets from rookie Patrick Mahomes and not Alex Smith, who'll be in uniform but not expected to play. Nevertheless, with inconsistent and unproven options Demarcus Robinson, De'Anthony Thomas and Jehu Chesson as the other wideout behind him, the four-year veteran could be a modest streaming option against a talented Broncos secondary that may nevertheless be somewhat short on motivation in the regular-season finale.
