Fantasy Football Week 2 Running Back Preview: Jeff Wilson is a great feature, but not without risks

Once it became clear that Nagy Harris was expected to play in the second week against patriotsJeff Wilson became the loudest clear concession wire. Wilson is expected to take charge of Elijah Mitchell against Seattle Seahawks. But any time we talk about Kyle Shanahan’s crime and use the word “expected,” we have to be careful.

Remember, last year no one expected Mitchell to be on top when Raheem Mostert fell. In fact, Shanahan hasn’t had the same lead contestant in back-to-back seasons for five consecutive years. Although, to be fair with Wilson, he was one of those to show up in 2020. Shanahan himself has said he would use a solid technique with Tyrion Davis-Pryce and Jordan Mason likely to get a chance. And the team just added Jordan Mason from the waiver wire.

Shanahan isn’t the only danger to Wilson. They can lead their backs running and still fall short. In the first week, she carried a combined Tre Lance for 21 yards and 106 yards. Wilson and Mitchell had 15 holders for 63 yards in that game. The 49ers The internal offensive line wasn’t impressive either.

None of this means you can’t start a Wilson in week 2. I’d feel more comfortable doing so with resilience expectations to boom or break than you would be number 2 in a row.

Now let’s move on to the rest of Week 2 RB Preview:
