The San Francisco 49ers are re-signing running back Jeff Wilson Jr. to an undisclosed deal on Wednesday. Wilson has a total of 1,265 rushing yards and 17 total touchdowns in four years with head coach Kyle Shanahan. The 26-year-old only played in nine games (four starts) last year, rushing 79 times for 294 yards and two touchdowns while catching seven of eight targets for 31 additional yards. Raheem Mostert is no longer in town in San Francisco's backfield, but Elijah Mitchell should retain his lead-back role in 2022, and second-year back Trey Sermon could also have an expanded role. It might take an injury for Wilson to become fantasy relevant on a weekly basis, and he'll mainly be a handcuff for those that have Mitchell rostered in 2022.

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) is inactive for Sunday's NFC Championship against the Rams. The 26-year-old sustained a sprained ankle during Saturday's snowy Divisional-Round win over Green Bay and practiced sparingly throughout the week. Fortunately, Elijah Mitchell (knee) will play, with JaMycal Hasty listed behind him on the depth chart. However, Deebo Samuel will unquestionably have a role in the running game as well.

San Francisco 49ers Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) is questionable for Sunday's NFC Championship matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. He missed the first two days of practice but was a limited participant on Friday. The 26-year-old suffered a low-ankle sprain during the first quarter of Saturday's Divisional-Round game over the Green Packers and did not return. Fantasy managers should check back 90 minutes before Sunday's 6:30 p.m. ET kickoff to ensure he's active before inserting the 49ers running back into DFS lineups. If active, Wilson isn't expected to have much of a fantasy impact with starter Elijah Mitchell (ankle) off the injury report.

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) was able to get in a limited practice on Thursday. He is recovering from an ankle injury he suffered during last week's Divisional Round. The 49ers are hopeful he can play this weekend versus the Los Angeles Rams. However, Wilson doesn't offer much fantasy value with Elijah Mitchell getting a majority of the carries. There's a small chance that Wilson makes a significant impact, assuming he's healthy enough to play on Sunday.

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (knee) did not participate in Wednesday's practice. Teammate Elijah Mitchell also missed Wednesday's session with an ongoing knee issue. Wilson suffered a low-ankle sprain during the first quarter of Saturday's Divisional-Round game over the Green Packers and did not return. According to head coach Kyle Shanahan, he could play in the NFC Championship Game against the Los Angeles Rams. The 26-year-old has two more chances to practice in some capacity and will most likely be questionable for Sunday's game. If active, Wilson could have an expanded role if Mitchell (knee) cannot suit up. Stay tuned.

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) has a chance to play in the NFC Championship game against the Los Angeles Rams. He suffered a low-ankle sprain during the first quarter of Saturday's Divisional-Round game over the Green Packers and did not return. The 26-year-old's status for Sunday's game will be determined by the level of activity Wilson can practice this week. Wilson is the top backup to starter Elijah Mitchell but with a limited role isn't a recommended option in DFS even if he does suit up against the Rams. JaMycal Hasty and Trey Sermon would see an expanded role if Wilson is ruled out. Stay tuned.

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (ankle) is questionable to return in Saturday's Divisional-Round game against the Green Bay Packers. He injured his ankle while playing special teams and is questionable to return. The 26-year-old is the top backup to starter Elijah Mitchell and did not record a rushing attempt before exiting. JaMycal Hasty will be Mitchell's top backup while Wilson is sidelined and provide a change of pace for the 49ers in Saturday's contest. Stay tuned for further updates.

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. carried 14 times for 45 yards and a touchdown while adding three receptions for 12 yards during a 20-17 Week 16 loss to the Tennessee Titans. Wilson converted a goal-line carry to open up the scoring during Thursday's primetime game, preserving an RB2 finish. Averaging 3.2 YPC certainly was not ideal, as the Titans front-seven forced Jimmy Garoppolo to attempt 35 passes. Wilson should be in a smash spot against the Houston Texans defense, which has allowed the fourth-highest PPR points to opposing running backs this season. However, Wilson cedes touches to Deebo Samuel, and the impending return of rookie Elijah Mitchell could wind up forcing Wilson into a back-seat role, devaluing him against the Texans. Make sure to pay attention to practice reports leading up to their Week 17 home game.

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. carried 21 times for 110 yards and a touchdown and caught two passes for an additional nine receiving yards during a 31-13 Week 15 win against the Atlanta Falcons. Wilson had his best game of the season since returning from an offseason knee injury in Week 10, churning out 5.2 YPC while handling over 20 touches. He ripped off a five-yard touchdown run to begin the second half, and the game script allowed the 49ers to continue feeding him carries against a bad Atlanta run defense. Wilson should be valued as an RB2 if Elijah Mitchell misses additional time against the Tennessee Titans in Week 16.

49ers' RB Jeff Wilson ran for 110 yards on 21 carries with one touchdown in Sunday's win against the Falcons.

Dec 12 8:40pm ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. carried 13 times for 56 yards during a 26-23 overtime win against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 14. Wilson spent much of the season rehabbing a knee injury he sustained in the offseason and has yet to flash the explosiveness he generated last season since returning. The lack of targets in the passing game is also concerning. Zero targets against the Bengals capped his ceiling to 5.6 PPR points, which falls below the mark of a quality RB3. Elijah Mitchell is the RB1 in the offense and will likely return against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 15, but Wilson is worth stashing for injury insurance. He is an RB4 that is touchdown-dependent.

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. is slated to start in Week 14 now that Elijah Mitchell (concussion, knee) has been ruled out. The 26-year-old Wilson totaled 58 scrimmage yards when Mitchell was inactive for Week 11. Since then, he has logged just three touches, partly due to a flare-up of his previous knee injury. Even with Wilson getting the start on Sunday, fantasy managers can expect a larger-than-normal dose of JaMychal Hasty. Fantasy managers should treat Wilson as a mid-range RB3 and Hasty as a mid-range RB4.

Dec 9 8:00pm ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice and is expected to be the front-runner to start in Week 14 versus the Cincinnati Bengals with rookie Elijah Mitchell (concussion, knee) trending towards missing Sunday's game. Even if Wilson starts, JaMycal Hasty could get his fair share of snaps on third down. The 49ers also signed Brian Hill, but it's unlikely that he will have much of an impact right away. For the season, Wilson has participated in three games and has 83 yards on 31 carries with zero touchdowns. With Hasty in the picture, Wilson should be considered a low-end RB2 on Sunday if Mitchell is inactive.

Dec 8 8:30pm ET

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (knee) was able to put in a limited practice on Wednesday after aggravating his knee in the Week 13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Wilson should be fine to play this weekend against the Cincinnati Bengals, and he could see lead-back duties if rookie Elijah Mitchell (concussion, knee) isn't cleared by the end of the week. Trenton Cannon (concussion) missed practice on Wednesday, and rookie Trey Sermon (ankle) is on Injured Reserve. Wilson should be picked up off the waiver wire if you have Mitchell rostered or are desperate for an RB this week. The 26-year-old would likely split playing time with JaMycal Hasty, the team's only healthy running back.

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. (knee) aggravated his knee injury in the Week 13 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Wilson's knee has flared up at times before, and head coach Kyle Shanahan said it usually bothers Wilson for a couple of days. Neither Wilson nor JaMycal Hasty saw a single touch behind rookie workhorse Elijah Mitchell on Sunday, but Mitchell is in the league's concussion protocol. Fellow rookie Trey Sermon (ankle) is on Injured Reserve and will miss at least the next two games, and Trenton Cannon (head, neck) was taken off the field in an ambulance on Sunday. So if Mitchell and Wilson can't play in Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals, they could be severely short-handed at the RB position. We'll have a better idea of what this backfield will look like come Sunday once the team gets through a few practices.

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. rushed twice for five yards and caught a two-yard pass to finish with seven total yards during a 34-26 Week 12 win over the Minnesota Vikings. Wilson had the opportunity to shine against Jacksonville in Week 11, but he failed to do much, churning out 50 yards on 19 carries and whiffing on an open end zone target. Wilson returned to a fringe role behind Elijah Mitchell, who has been dominant with four 100 yard rushing performances as a rookie. Wilson is an RB5 if he retains his current role with Mitchell and Deebo Samuel used as the primary ball carriers, making him a player to avoid in fantasy lineups moving forward.

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. carried 19 times for 50 yards and caught an eight-yard pass during a 30-10 Week 11 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars. Wilson was the RB1 for the 49ers against the Jags with rookie Elijah Mitchell sidelined due to a finger injury. Wilson was the leading rusher for San Francisco a year ago and has had time to rehab from an offseason knee injury, so expect him to be squarely in the mix for a role in this backfield, even when Mitchell is able to return from a broken finger. Wilson nearly caught an end-zone target that would have elevated his final line in Week 11.
