Albert Wilson: Opting out

Wilson is opting out of the 2020 season, Cameron Wolfe of reports.

Analysis: Wilson joins teammate Allen Hurns, who made the same announcement a day earlier. The Dolphins are left with a shaky group behind DeVante Parker at wide receiver, as Preston Williams is coming back from an ACL tear and nobody else among the group has ever caught more than 23 passes in a season. Isaiah Ford and Jakeem Grant figure to be in the mix for a starting job, while the 28-year-old Wilson will look to rejoin the Dolphins next offseason.

Albert Wilson: Restructures deal

Wilson agreed Tuesday with the Dolphins on a restructured contract for the 2020 season, Field Yates of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Entering the final season of the three-year, $24 million deal he inked in March 2018, Wilson likely would have been a cap casualty had he not agreed to the restructure. Under the new terms of his deal, Wilson will earn a maximum of $4 million ($3 million in base salary and up to $1 million in incentives) in what amounts to a pay cut of $5.5 million. Wilson has largely disappointed during his time in Miami, but he at least finished the 2019 season on a high note by hauling in 17 of 23 targets for 197 yards between Weeks 15 and 17.

Albert Wilson: Could get No. 3 role again

Wilson currently projects as Miami's No. 3 receiver, Armando Salguero of The Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Wilson could end up benefiting from an offseason that saw the Dolphins revamp their roster at nearly every position besides wide receiver and tight end. The team essentially is bringing back its same group of pass catchers from 2019, including Preston Williams coming back from the ACL tear he suffered in early November. Wilson struggled to regain his form after he suffered a severe hip injury in 2018, but he did show signs of life at the end of last season with 197 receiving yards over the final three weeks. Granted, his future with the Dolphins may depend on accepting a pay cut, as he's scheduled for a non-guaranteed $9.48 million base salary in the final season of a three-year contract.

Albert Wilson: Future uncertain in Miami

Wilson said Monday that he hopes to remain with the Dolphins in 2020, though his non-guaranteed $9.48 million base salary could make him a candidate to get cut, Cameron Wolfe of reports.

Analysis: Wilson's 2019 debut was delayed while he worked back from a torn labrum and fractured hip suffered late in the prior season, but he was able to round into form and make an impact in the passing game down the stretch. Over the Dolphins' final four games, Wilson hauled in 18 of 25 targets for 202 yards, serving as a viable complement to No. 1 wideout Devante Parker. Given Wilson's willingness to return to Miami, it's possible he could be receptive to taking a pay cut if the Dolphins inform him they're not willing to retain him at his current rate.

Albert Wilson: Solid finish to season

Wilson caught five of eight targets for 59 yards during Sunday's 27-24 divisional win over the Patriots.

Analysis: Wilson concludes the 2019 campaign with 43 catches for 351 yards and one touchdown across 13 contests. He also carried the ball five times for 45 yards. The 27-year-old came into the year working his way back from a torn labrum and fractured hip, and setbacks in his recovery plus additional minor injuries marred his effectiveness for much of the season. He did close out the year with some momentum, exceeding 55 yards with at least five catches in each of the final three contests. He's under contract with the Dolphins through 2020 and should benefit from a healthy offseason.

Albert Wilson: Season-best effort in OT win

Wilson secured all seven targets for 79 yards in the Dolphins' 38-35 overtime win against the Bengals on Sunday. He also rushed once for nine yards.

Analysis: Wilson paced the Dolphins in receptions on the afternoon, a rare feat for the slot receiver, who hadn't logged more than five catches in nine of his previous 10 contests. Wilson has 12 receptions (15 targets) for 138 yards over the last pair of contests combined, providing a glimpse of what might have been had he remained healthy all season and Miami enjoyed better quarterback play from start to finish. Wilson will look to put together another productive performance to close out the campaign against the Patriots in Week 17.

Albert Wilson: Practices without limitations

Wilson (hip) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

Analysis: Wilson was limited in Wednesday's practice, so Thursday's full participation serves to shed any doubts about his Week 16 availability. The 27-year-old is set to serve as the No. 2 wideout in Miami's receiving corps, behind DeVante Parker, during Sunday's game against the Bengals.

December 19, 2019 2:26 PM EST

Albert Wilson: Hip injury resurfaces

Wilson was limited in Wednesday's practice due to a hip injury, Adam H. Beasley of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Wilson was been battling a lingering hip injury for much of the year, but there's not any reason to worry that he's in danger of missing time. The shifty slot receiver logged his best game of the season Week 15 against the Giants, catching five of eight targets for 59 yards. He's on track to operate behind DeVante Parker (hip) during Sunday's tilt against the Bengals barring any setbacks.

December 18, 2019 2:01 PM EST

Albert Wilson: Finally tops 50 yards

Wilson caught five of eight targets for 59 yards in Sunday's 36-20 loss to the Giants.

Analysis: It's hard to trust any Dolphins player outside of DeVante Parker in fantasy. Parker had another two receiving scores, giving him eight this season to Wilson's one. Wilson set a new season high in receiving yards in this game, as he hadn't notched more than 33 in any previous 2019 contest.

Albert Wilson: Clears concussion protocol

Wilson (concussion) will play Sunday against the Giants after clearing concussion protocol, Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Analysis: Both Wilson and Devante Parker cleared concussion protocol Saturday, and as a result both wide receivers will suit up in an excellent matchup against the porous Giants secondary. Following the season-ending injury to Preston Williams (knee), Wilson was gradually beginning to get more involved in the offense, posting two consecutive games with at least five catches before leaving the Week 14 contest early, and should be a factor out of the slot Sunday.

December 14, 2019 3:02 PM EST

Albert Wilson: Questionable for Week 15

Wilson (concussion) is officially listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Giants, Omar Kelly of the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Wilson practiced in full Friday, according to Cameron Wolfe of, which represents substantial progress after beginning the week with two consecutive limited sessions. The 27-year-old will still need to fully clear the concussion protocol before retaking the field, the final step of which includes meeting with an independent neurologist.

December 13, 2019 10:57 AM EST

Albert Wilson: Limited again Thursday

Wilson (concussion) was limited in Thursday's practice, Cameron Wolfe of reports.

Analysis: Wilson has now logged two consecutive limited practice sessions. He'll need to fully clear the league's protocol for head injuries, including meeting with an independent neurologist, before retaking the field. If Wilson were forced to miss any time, added targets would become available for depth receivers Allen Hurns, Isaiah Ford, Mack Hollins and Trevor Davis.

December 12, 2019 12:42 PM EST

Albert Wilson: Still in protocol

Coach Brian Flores said Thursday that Wilson will stay in the league's concussion protocol "through the end of the week" at least, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Wilson can't be considered a lock to clear the league's protocol for head injuries in time to suit up Sunday against the Giants, and the same holds true for top wideout DeVante Parker (concussion). Still, it's encouraging that both receivers have already resumed handling non-contact drills. In any case, Wilson has scored just once this season and has yet to exceed 33 receiving yards in a single contest, so he remains off the fantasy radar in all but the deepest of leagues.

Albert Wilson: Wearing non-contact jersey

Wilson (concussion) is participating in non-contact drills during Wednesday's practice, Hal Habib of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Analysis: Wilson was forced to enter the league's concussion protocol during Sunday's divisional loss to the Jets. The slot receiver will need to fully clear the league's protocol for head injuries before retaking the field, the final step of which includes meeting with an independent neurologist, but it's encouraging to see that he's already made enough progress to participate in some drills. With No. 1 wideout DeVante Parker also nursing a concussion, the Dolphins' receiver corps could be short-handed to face the Giants in Week 15.

December 11, 2019 9:43 AM EST

Albert Wilson: Won't return Sunday

Wilson suffered a concussion during Sunday's contest against the Jets and is ruled out to return,Joe Schad of The Palm Beach Post reports.

Analysis: Wilson joins No. 1 wideout DeVante Parker in the league's five-step protocol for head injuries Sunday. As a result, the Dolphins will be forced to proceed with a wide receiver corps consisting of only Allen Hurns, Mack Hollins and Isaiah Ford for the remainder of Week 14.

December 8, 2019 12:10 PM EST

Albert Wilson: Evaluated for head injury

Wilson is questionable to return to Sunday's divisional contest against the Jets while being evaluated for a concussion.

Analysis: Wilson did not take the field to begin the second half of Sunday's matchup. He caught one of two targets for five yards before leaving the field. With DeVante Parker (concussion) already ruled out to retake the field, the Dolphins' only healthy wide receivers will be Allen Hurns, Mack Hollins and Isaiah Ford if Wilson is ultimately diagnosed with a concussion.

Albert Wilson: Splash plays help spur Week 13 win

Wilson caught all five of his targets for 32 yards and ran for 31 yards on two rush attempts during Sunday's 37-31 win against Philadelphia.

Analysis: Though Wilson's 6.4 yards-per-catch average doesn't exactly scream out "explosive," the 27-year-old made a couple plays in Week 13 that likely shifted the outcome of the game. His 28-yard scamper on Miami's fourth offensive drive helped set up his team's first score of the day, and his two third-down receptions spurred touchdowns on separate second and fourth quarter possessions for the Dolphins. Wilson now has six targets per game over his past three outings heading into a Week 14 matchup against the Jets' No. 19 pass defense.

December 1, 2019 4:07 PM EST

Albert Wilson: Ready to rock

Wilson (hip/chest) practiced in full Friday, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports.

Analysis: Wilson was forced out of Week 12's loss to the Browns and battled hip and chest injuries throughout practice this week, and he now looks back to full health. The 27-year-old can be considered on track for Sunday's tilt against the Eagles, barring any setbacks. As one of only four available wide receivers on the Dolphins' roster, Wilson could be in line to garner a significant amount of targets down the stretch.

November 29, 2019 10:47 AM EST

Albert Wilson: Limited Wednesday

Wilson (hip/chest) was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice, Safid Deen of the South Florida Sun Sentinel reports.

Analysis: Wilson exited Sunday's loss to the Browns due to what initially disclosed as a ribs injury, but he's now been revealed to be dealing with hip and chest issues. The fact that Wilson wasn't held out of Wednesday's practice entirely is a good sign for his chances of suiting up Week 13 against the Eagles. The 27-year-old hasn't been a worthwhile fantasy option this season, having accumulated just 20 catches for 117 yards and one touchdown across eight contests, but he'll at least benefit from plenty of opportunity going forward. Behind No. 1 wide receiver Devante Parker, the Dolphins only have Wilson, Allen Hurns and Isaiah Ford as healthy options.

November 27, 2019 1:13 PM EST

Albert Wilson: Present for Wednesday's practice

Wilson (ribs) is working through drills at Wednesday's practice, Cameron Wolfe of reports.

Analysis: Wilson was forced out of Sunday's loss to the Browns due to a ribs injury. It appears as though the 27-year-old will manage to at least participate in a limited capacity Wednesday, and he'll have two more opportunities this week to up his level of activity. With Jakeem Grant (ankle) now on injured reserve, DeVante Parker and Allen Hurns are currently the only healthy wide receivers on Miami's active roster.
