Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson was targeted three times in Week 9, but made just one catch, gaining six yards. Fourth-string quarterback Garrett Gilbert spread the ball around to several different Cowboys pass catchers, but Wilson was left behind. Wilson is a dart-throw fantasy option where you just pray for a long touchdown if he has to be in your starting lineup. He's a much better option in best-ball formats than he is in standard scoring leagues.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson is not a recommended fantasy starter in any Week 9 fantasy lineups. Wilson has his occasional huge weeks, but they are almost always unpredictable. With either Cooper Rush or Garrett Gilbert making the start at quarterback in Week 9 against the undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers, this certainly does not have the makings of a random big week for Wilson. He remains behind Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, and Michael Gallup in the wide receiver pecking order.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson was targeted twice in a Week 8 loss to the Eagles but was unable to come up with either pass. He was given two carries in the running game, losing 11 yards total. So, Wilson's final line was zero catches, two carries, negative 11 yards. It was a rough week for pretty much everyone in a Cowboys uniform, and Wilson should return to his fringe-fantasy-relevant role next week when Andy Dalton (concussion) returns as the starting quarterback.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson is not a reliable starting option in fantasy lineups for Week 7. Wilson has carved out a meaningful role in the Cowboys offense, but he remains fourth on the wide receiver depth chart behind Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, and Michael Gallup. Wilson may have another huge week ahead of him like his Week 3 performance, but he's more likely to continue in his low-volume supporting role. He'd be worth a longer look if any of the other Cowboys pass catchers ended up missing time, but for now, Wilson can be left on the wire in most standard leagues.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson made just two catches in a Week 6 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Wilson was targeted three times, gaining 10 yards on his two catches. Andy Dalton threw the ball 54 times and showed that even though the Dallas defense will make him keep throwing the ball plenty, he likely won't be able to push the fourth wide receiver on the depth chart into fantasy relevance. Wilson won't be a recommended starter in most formats as long as the rest of the Cowboys receivers remain healthy.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson has flashed his upside a few times this season, but he's too risky to start in most fantasy formats, especially for the first game with Andy Dalton starting at quarterback. For the season, Wilson has caught 12 passes for 163 yards and three touchdowns, but a huge percentage of that production came in just one of his five games. He is fourth at best on the receiver pecking order, and even fifth in some offensive formations. Wilson is worth stashing on a fantasy bench in case someone ahead of him on the Cowboys depth chart gets hurt, but he's little more than a last-ditch dart throw until then.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson caught four passes for 22 yards in a Week 5 win over the New York Giants. He also threw an 11-yard touchdown pass to quarterback Dak Prescott on a trick play. Wilson tied with Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup for second on the team with four targets, well behind CeeDee Lamb, who drew 11 targets. Wilson should continue to see usage in the passing game even with Dak Prescott (ankle) handing the reins to Andy Dalton, but Wilson will be a boom-or-bust play at best.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson is not a reliable fantasy starter in Week 5 lineups. After not being targeted in Weeks 1 or 2, Wilson exploded for two long touchdowns in Week 3 before falling back down to Earth with 3/34/0 in Week 4. He was in on just 22% of the team's offensive snaps in Week 4, and the Cowboys probably won't have to throw almost 60 times against the Giants in Week 5. Wilson should be a somewhat-intriguing best ball asset, but won't be anywhere near consistent enough to have a starting role in most standard formats.
Dallas Cowboys WR Cedrick Wilson ended up with three catches for 34 yards on six targets in Week 4 against the Cleveland Browns.
Fantasy Spin: Wilson piled up five grabs, 102 yards and two scores in Seattle last week, so a backslide was inevitable. Despite his huge Week 3 game, he remains useful only in the deepest of fantasy leagues heading into Week 5 against the New York Giants.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson made three catches in Week 4, gaining 34 scoreless yards. He was targeted six times on a day Dak Prescott made 58 pass attempts. Wilson was never expected to follow up Week 3's huge two-touchdown game with anything even close to that, but any fantasy managers who crossed their fingers and started him anyway were certainly disappointed. Wilson is fourth on the wide receiver depth chart at best, and cannot be started in most formats unless the Cowboys offense suffers multiple injuries.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Cedrick Wilson came out of nowhere to have a huge performance in Week 3. He caught five of his seven targets for 107 yards and two touchdowns. Those seven targets were the first seven balls thrown his way in 2020. It was likely one of those flukey games that happens every season to a team's fourth or fifth wide receiver, and is unlikely to repeat itself in Week 4. Wilson is still behind at least three other Cowboys wide receivers on the depth chart. He was in on 4% of offensive snaps in Week 1 and 5% in Week 2. Even in his huge Week 3, he was only on the field for 29% of the team's offensive snaps. He's a best-ball all-star, but shouldn't be started in standard formats.
Dallas Cowboys WR Cedrick Wilson caught five passes for 107 yards and two touchdowns against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 3, but Todd Archer of ESPN.com believes Wilson won't be 'anything more than a bit piece' of the offense going forward.
Fantasy Spin: Wilson didn't have a target coming into Week 3, and he is still the No. 4 or No. 5 option in the passing game, at best. Don't overreact and waste a waiver claim on Wilson after one big performance against a terrible Seattle secondary.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Ced Wilson came out of nowhere in Week 3 to score two long touchdowns in a loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Wilson was targeted seven times, catching five for 107 yards and the two scores. Wilson's first score was on a 40-yard pass in the second quarter. He followed it up with a 42-yard score in the third quarter. There's a good chance this will be Wilson's best game of the season, as he's still no higher than fourth on the wide receiver depth chart. Still, it's hard to ignore his performance, so fantasy managers with a free bench spot can probably snag him off the waiver wire before Week 4.
