Player Outlook
Expect Wilson to compete for a decent target share this season with the Cardinals. He notched at least six targets in five of 13 games as a rookie last year but managed 14-plus PPR points just twice. The team's addition of Marvin Harrison Jr. at receiver is a lock to impact Wilson's contributions, making him more of a low-end bench player in deeper redraft leagues, even though he offers some size to the Cardinals receiving game. Expect him to get taken in Round 13 or later, and probably only in deeper full-PPR leagues.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Outlook muddied after recent arrivals

    Wilson has more competition for targets from quarterback Kyler Murray after the team selected Marvin Harrison fourth overall in this year's draft and then signed seven-year pro Zay Jones last week, Josh Weinfuss of reports. Wilson spent much of the offseason No. 2, at best, in the pecking order in the Cardinals passing game behind tight end Trey McBride, but the recent additions leave Wilson's potential volume in the upcoming campaign up in the air. As a rookie third-round pick last year, Wilson put together a 38-565-3 line on 58 targets in 13 contests, but he produced just 13 catches (on 25 targets) for 164 yards and one touchdown in five outings with Murray under center. The arrival of the dynamic Harrison likely leaves Wilson fending for looks with Jones, who has three years with at least 500 receiving yards on his resume.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Temporarily atop depth chart

    Wilson is part of a thin WR room in Arizona after the team traded Rondale Moore and lost Marquise Brown in free agency, Bo Brack of reports. That said, the Cardinals own the fourth overall pick in a draft with three elite wide receiver prospects and might end up having their choice of the three. They also have time to pursue veterans, though journeyman Chris Moore has been the only free-agent addition so far. Wilson came in as a third-round pick last season and started 12 of his 13 games while posting excellent per-target efficiency numbers -- 65.5 percent catch rate, 14.9 YPR, 9.7 YPT -- but his low rate of targets per route (14.1 percent) leaves him as somewhat of a question mark. He's got opportunity and size (6-2, 213) working in his favor, while speed (4.58 40) and age (turned 24 in February) were dings on the prospect profile coming out of Stanford. If nothing else, Wilson seems to be in pretty good position to reprise his role as a starter who doesn't see that many targets.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Finishes rookie season on high note

    Wilson gathered in all six targets for 95 yards during Sunday's 21-20 loss to the Seahawks. Wilson's yardage total marked a career best for the 2023 third-round pick, but perhaps more promising for the future was the fact he finally seemed to be on the same page with quarterback Kyler Murray. In four previous appearances together this season, the duo connected on just seven of 19 passes for 69 yards and one touchdown. Wilson thus heads into the offseason with a bit of momentum for the 2024 campaign, and he'll end the current season with a cumulative 38-565-3 line on 58 targets, which equates to a healthy 14.9 YPC and 9.7 YPT.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Limited again Thursday

    Wilson (neck) was limited in practice Thursday, Jose M. Romero of The Arizona Republic reports. Wilson's last appearance occurred in Week 10, and while his absences Weeks 11-13 were blamed on a shoulder injury, the Cardinals now are listing him with a neck issue after their Week 14 bye. He's managed back-to-back capped sessions so far this week and will have one more opportunity to get back to all activity before the team potentially gives him a designation ahead of Sunday's game against the 49ers.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Limited in practice Wednesday

    Wilson (neck) was a limited participant at Wednesday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. In the wake of the Cardinals' Week 14 bye, Wilson got back on the field with a capped session to begin Week 15 prep and will have two more chances to get back to full activity before week's end. While his absences before the bye were attributed to a shoulder injury, he's now being listed with a neck issue. Fellow wide receiver Marquise Brown (heel) didn't take part in drills Wednesday, so Wilson could find himself a bigger part of Arizona's offense Sunday against the 49ers if he's able to return to action and if the former is limited or sidelined.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Back on practice field

    Wilson (shoulder) was spotted taking part in Monday's unofficial practice session, Tyler Drake of reports. Though the Cardinals were back on the field Monday following a Week 14 bye, the team won't have to submit its first Week 15 injury report until Wednesday, at which point it will be known whether Wilson is practicing as a full or limited participant. The fact that the rookie receiver is at least practicing in some capacity is an encouraging sign after he had sat out Arizona's last three games while missing six consecutive practices. If Wilson is available for this Sunday's game against the 49ers, he should reclaim the starting role he had held prior to suffering the shoulder injury.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Sits out another practice

    Wilson (shoulder) isn't participating in Thursday's practice, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Wilson is set to go down as a non-participant on the Cardinals' fifth practice report in a row, and unless he can get back on the field in some capacity Friday, he'll most likely miss a third consecutive game this weekend in Pittsburgh. In addition to Wilson, quarterback Kyler Murray could be down a couple other key passing-game weapons, as wideout Marquise Brown (heel) and tight end Trey McBride (groin) were also spectators at practice Thursday for the second day in a row.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Sits out practice Wednesday

    Wilson (shoulder) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of reports. Wilson has been tending to a shoulder injury that has affected him for the entirety of November and limited him to one appearance over the last three games. On Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Wilson suffered a setback with his shoulder late last week, and the rookie wideout now isn't logging any on-field work to begin Week 12 prep. Wilson will have two more chances to mix into drills before the Cardinals potentially make a ruling on his availability ahead of Sunday's contest against the Rams.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Sitting out Sunday

    Wilson (shoulder) is listed as inactive Sunday in Houston. Prior to opening November with a shoulder injury, Wilson was enjoying a fruitful rookie campaign, tallying a cumulative 25-401-2 line on 33 targets in the first eight games of his career. Since then, he sat out Week 9 and played through the issue Week 10 against the Falcons on his way to three more catches for 34 yards. During Week 11 prep, he wasn't listed on Cardinals practice reports until Friday, when he was tagged with a questionable designation. On Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reported that Wilson suffered a setback with his shoulder late in the week and wasn't in line to play, which has come to pass. With Zach Pascal (hamstring) also sidelined, Arizona's available wide receivers this weekend are Marquise Brown, Rondale Moore, Greg Dortch and Andre Baccellia.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Added to report as questionable

    Wilson (shoulder) was added to the injury report Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game at Houston, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Wilson missed Week 9 with a shoulder injury, then returned for Week 10 after being listed as questionable. He wasn't on the injury report to start this week, and his addition Friday might mean he suffered some kind of setback as Arizona prepares for Sunday's 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff in Houston. With Zach Pascal (hamstring) ruled out, the only healthy wide receivers on the roster as of Friday are Marquise Brown, Rondale Moore and Greg Dortch, all of whom are listed at 175-to-180 pounds. The Cardinals have WRs Davion Davis, Kaden Davis and Andre Baccellia on their practice squad.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Has three catches in return

    Wilson (shoulder) gathered in three of six targets for 34 yards during Sunday's 25-23 win over the Falcons. In his return from a one-game absence due to a shoulder injury, Wilson worked with quarterback Kyler Murray (knee) for the first time in his brief career, and the rookie third-round pick extended his streak with at least three catches to four games. Granted, the quartet of performances has resulted in only a 13-180-0 line on 21 targets, but with Murray under center moving forward, Wilson may have a chance for more consistent production on a weekly basis. Wilson next takes on the Texans on the road on Sunday, Nov. 19.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Remains limited at practice

    Wilson (shoulder) was limited at Thursday's practice, Josh Weinfuss of reports. After a week in which he didn't practice before the Cardinals made him inactive this past Sunday in Cleveland, Wilson has consecutive capped sessions in his back pocket to kick off Week 10 prep. Friday's injury report will reveal whether or not he enters the weekend with an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Ultimately, if he's able to suit up this weekend, Wilson likely will be working with quarterback Kyler Murray, who is poised to make his return from last year's torn ACL.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Not suiting up Sunday

    Wilson (shoulder) is listed as inactive Sunday at Cleveland. A shoulder injury didn't allow Wilson to practice at all during Week 9 prep, and the rookie third-round pick now will miss the first game of his career. With Wilson in street clothes, the Cardinals may rely even more on top wide receiver Marquise Brown and tight end Trey McBride in the passing game, but WRs Rondale Moore, Zach Pascal, Greg Dortch (ankle) and Andre Baccellia also are candidates for additional reps.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Spectator for Thursday's practice

    Wilson (shoulder) isn't taking part in Thursday's practice, Bo Brack of reports. Wilson will go down as a non-participant on the Cardinals' injury report for the second day in a row after he sustained a shoulder injury late in this past Sunday's loss to the Ravens. The Cardinals haven't confirmed that Wilson's injury is something significant, but the rookie wideout's status for this Sunday's game in Cleveland is nonetheless in question at the moment. Wilson will likely need to practice in some capacity Friday to have a legitimate chance at playing this weekend.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Nursing shoulder injury

    Wilson didn't practice Wednesday due to a shoulder injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. In the portion of Wednesday's session open to the media, Wilson was seen working on the side, per Howard Balzer of Along with confirmation that he was a non-participant and the specific health concern, the reason for Wilson's late exit from this past Sunday's loss to the Ravens now has been clarified. He'll have two more chances this week to log some on-field work before the Cardinals potentially give him a designation for Sunday's contest at Cleveland.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Tending to injury

    Wilson worked off to the side at Wednesday's practice while he recovers from an undisclosed injury, Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site reports. Wilson exited late in Sunday's 31-24 loss to Baltimore and finished the day with four catches for 58 yards on six targets, but the Cardinals didn't provide an immediate explanation for his early departure. Arizona should clarify the matter with the release of their first Week 9 injury report later Wednesday.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Sleeper WRs

    Wilson is worth a look in deeper leagues as a boom-or-bust No. 3 Fantasy receiver given the matchup with Seattle. The Seahawks are No. 1 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers, and nine receivers have scored at least 13.7 PPR points against Seattle this year. I love the setup for Marquise Brown this week -- he's scored at least 16.1 PPR points in four of six games this season -- but hopefully Wilson takes advantage of this matchup as well. He has at least 62 receiving yards in three of his past four games, but he's only topped 10.6 PPR points once over that span when he scored his first two touchdowns of the season at San Francisco in Week 4. Hopefully, Joshua Dobbs and Wilson can hook up for a big play or two, and it would be great if Wilson found the end zone again in Week 7.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Team-high receiving yards in loss

    Wilson secured three of four targets for 62 yards in the Cardinals' 26-9 loss to the Rams on Sunday. The fleet-footed wideout tied with Trey McBride for the team lead in yardage, although the latter got to the 62-yard mark via a meaningless catch on the game's last play. Wilson's performance was encouraging and represented a solid resurgent effort after he'd been held to a career-low one reception and 18 yards by the Bengals in Week 5. Wilson now has over 50 receiving yards in four of the last five contests, giving him some momentum heading into a favorable Week 7 road matchup against the Seahawks.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Little output Sunday

    Wilson gathered in one of two targets for 18 yards during Sunday's 34-20 loss to the Bengals. Despite logging his second-highest snap share (75 percent) of the season, Wilson had the fewest catches and yards in any of his five games as a pro to date. The rookie third-round pick continued to operate as the team's No. 2 WR behind Marquise Brown (91 percent) and ahead of Rondale Moore (67 percent). However, he may have a tough time taking advantage of that usage this Sunday against a Rams defense that has conceded the seventh-fewest yards per catch (7.0) to wide receivers this season.

  • Cardinals' Michael Wilson: Two TDs in losing effort

    Wilson caught all seven of his targets for 76 yards and a pair of touchdowns in Sunday's 35-16 loss to San Francisco. Wilson was already coming off of his best fantasy game of the season against Dallas in Week 3 (2-86-0), but he raised the bar once more with his first and second touchdowns of his young career. The rookie's seven targets still finished behind Marquise Brown and tight end Zach Ertz, who tied for the team lead with 10 targets in Sunday's loss. Wilson has an opportunity to usurp the struggling Rondale Moore (no receptions Sunday) as the No. 2 wideout for Arizona if he hasn't done so already. Wilson will look to continue his recent string of success in a home matchup against the Bengals next Sunday.
