Wilson signed a two-year contract with the Saints on Thursday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Wilson played the last two seasons in Miami but was something of an afterthought in the offense while playing behind Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. He could potentially see an increased role with the Saints, who have a returning wide receiver corps of only Chris Olave, Rashid Shaheed and A.T. Perry. Wilson will likely fight for playing time throughout training camp, but he has a realistic chance to surpass his previous high of 521 offensive snaps in a season in the upcoming campaign.

Decisions coming this offseason

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-18

Wilson secured three of seven targets for 37 yards during Saturday's season-ending wild-card playoff loss to the Chiefs.

Wilson drew his highest target total of the 2023 campaign during Miami's sole playoff appearance, capping a stretch run in which his involvement on offense grew, despite lacking a notable uptick in production. Across 15 regular-season appearances, the 28-year-old wideout secured 17 of 38 targets for 296 yards and three touchdowns, better marks across the board than his 2022 season (also 15 games played). Wilson has emerged as a serviceable No. 3 option behind the dynamic duo of Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle, but due to the contract restructure he signed back in August, as Jonathan Jones of reports, his deal will now void automatically void this offseason. It's possible, though, that Miami could pursue re-signing Wilson to a team-friendly deal.

Quiet in loss to Bills

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-01-10

Wilson secured one of three targets for 24 yards during Sunday's 21-14 loss to Buffalo.

Wilson failed to make much of his expanded opportunity with Jaylen Waddle (ankle) sidelined versus Buffalo, though he did play a season-high 96 percent of offensive snaps. Pending Waddle's status for Saturday's wild-card matchup at Kansas City, Wilson could again be called upon to step up as the Dolphins' second starting wideout behind Tyreek Hill. Across 15 regular-season appearances Wilson managed a modest bounce-back campaign in Miami, securing 22 of 38 targets for 296 yards and three touchdowns.

Finds end zone on two catches

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-31

Wilson caught two passes for 27 yards and one touchdown on four targets in Sunday's 56-19 loss to the Ravens.

It's disappointing that Wilson couldn't draw more targets on a day where Jaylen Waddle (ankle) sat out, especially since the Ravens were without two of their leading corners (Brandon Stephens and Kyle Hamilton). The touchdown salvaged the game somewhat for Wilson, but whenever Waddle is healthy again Wilson should be reduced mostly to a blocker again. With that said, it's not clear whether Waddle might return against Buffalo in Week 18.

Makes impact in narrow win

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-25

Wilson secured three of five targets for 42 yards during Sunday's 22-20 win over Dallas.

Wilson tallied his highest yardage total since Week 7 during Sunday's narrow victory, in which Jaylen Waddle (shin) was forced off the field in the third quarter. In the event that Waddle misses any time, Wilson would stand to handle a more significant role behind Tyreek Hill, who recently dealt with an ankle injury of his own. Fantasy managers will want to monitor the situation, but Wilson could become an interesting streaming option in deeper formats Week 17 at Baltimore.

Does little with three targets

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-18

Wilson secured two of three targets for two yards during Sunday's 30-0 win over the Jets.

Wilson's lack of production was disappointing considering the presumed opportunity opened up by Tyreek Hill (ankle) missing a game, but unsurprising considering Jaylen Waddle's dominant outing, with eight catches for 142 yards and a score. In all but the deepest of formats, Wilson carries no fantasy value with a Week 16 matchup against the Cowboys coming up.

Makes two grabs in loss to Titans

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-12-12

Wilson secured two of four targets for 30 yards during Monday's 28-27 loss to the Titans.

Wilson saw his highest target total since Week 11 with Tyreek Hill (ankle) having to spend time on the sideline, but he was once again limited to a quiet performance. Unless Hill ends up missing time, Wilson will not find himself on the fantasy radar Week 15 versus the Jets, except in especially deep formats.

Quiet in win over Jets

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-27

Wilson was not targeted during Friday's 34-13 win over the Jets.

Wilson's involvement in the passing game dipped, as he played just 39 percent of offensive snaps with Braxton Berrios back in the lineup. With a road matchup against the Commanders coming up Week 13, Wilson's fantasy utility remains as an emergency flex options in deep formats.

Secures three catches

RotoWire Logo Published: 2023-11-20

Wilson brought in three of four targets for 23 yards during Sunday's 20-13 win over the Raiders.

Wilson and Robbie Chosen split No. 3 receiver reps behind top targets Tyreek HIll and Jaylen Waddle versus Las Vegas. While Wilson had scored in two straight games leading up to Miami's bye, he logged his highest catch total since Week 5 versus the Raiders. It was also just his fourth time this season with at least 20 receiving yards. Wilson stands to handle a similar depth role on the road Friday versus the Jets.
