Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 17 vs NE (8 / 5 / 59 / 0 rec)
Wilson was all over the field for the Dolphins this week. He started by catching 5 of his 8 targets for 59 yards. His longest catch went for 24 yards and was immediately followed by a trick play that had him throw a 20-yard pass to Patrick Laird. The 24-yard reception was a deep shot down the field from Fitzpatrick on a 3rd and 2 play. Wilson found the void in the zone and was able to turn and run up field for a big play. On the very next play, Wilson caught a backwards pass from Fitzpatrick, evaded a defended and threw a screen pass back across the field to Patrick Laird for 20 yards. Fitzpatrick ran it in from 2 yards later in the drive and the Dolphins took a 17-10 lead. This offense stepped up down the stretch and Miami was able to beat the Patriots for the second season in a row during the final week of the regular season.
2019 Week 16 vs CIN (7 / 7 / 79 / 0 rec, 1 / 9 / 0 rush)
Wilson was one of the most reliable Dolphins this week. He caught all 7 of his targets and added a rushing attempt for 9 yards. The only thing he did not do for the offense this week was find the end zone. His longest catch went for 35 yards and helped setup a touchdown. He was 3rd on the team in targets but the most important stat was his catch rate. Both Parker and Gesicki had double digit targets but caught 50% or less of those targets. Wilson caught everything that came his way and could see his target share increase next week with the Patriots top coverage men lining up against Parker. Allen Hurns: It was an all around shoot out between the Dolphins and Bengals this week, but Hurns did not play a big role. He caught a long 27-yard pass on the first drive of the game to help setup an opening touchdown but was only targeted one more time the entire rest of the game. His second catch went for 14 yards and a first down. The bulk of the targets went to Parker and Gesicki this week with Hurns lagging way behind.
2019 Week 15 vs NYG (8 / 5 / 59 / 0 rec)
At some point someone else is going to have to start making plays in this offense. Wilson was the second leading receiver behind Parker this week and tied for the team lead in targets. His best play was a 21-yard catch and run on a dump off by Fitzpatrick that helped setup the first Parker touchdown. Wilson lost some reps to Isaiah Ford last week but played as the true number 2 receiver this week. With Jakeem Grant still injured, Wilson has a big chance to step up and show that he has a future with this team and expand his role. The Dolphins should continue to rotate through their depth at receiver and see what they have for the future, but Wilson seems to be safe going into next season.
2019 Week 13 vs PHI (5 / 5 / 32 / 0 rec, 2 / 31 / 0 rush)
All of the touchdowns may have gone to Parker, Gesicki, and Laird, but it was Wilson who did it all this week. He led the team in rushing with only 2 carries. He ripped off a 28-yard run off the edge after Ballage took the direct snap and pitched it to Wilson who was coming in motion. That one carry accounted for more yards on the ground than any other player had for the entire game. Wilson also caught all 5 of his targets with the longest catch going for 13 yards and a first down. He may not have had the long catches or scored the touchdowns this week, but he consistently helped move the chains and has seen an increased role since Jakeem Grant went down with an injury.
2019 Week 8 vs PIT (2 / 1 / 5 / 1 rec)
It has been a very slow start for Wilson after returning from injury. In the last 3 games he has just 44 yards on 7 catches and has not been heavily involved. This week he finally broke through with a touchdown on his lone catch of the day. Wilson came in motion across the formation and ran a rub route into the flat with the outside receiver carrying his coverage into Wilson's man. Wilson caught the ball in the flat and walked into the end zone for an easy 5-yard score. It was a simple and well executed route for the first touchdown of the game.
2019 Week 1 vs BAL (4 / 2 / 13 / 0 rec, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)
The ugliness continues for the Dolphins and Wilson after he managed to catch 2 of his 4 targets for just 13 yards. 12 of those yards came on a single play and the rest of the day it seemed as if he was barely on the field. Wilson injured his calf at one point in the game and his return was questionable. Some may wonder if he truly hurt himself or if he did not want to go back on the field as the team continued to get embarrassed. Wilson will have to battle with Parker, Hurns, and Grant the rest of the season for targets.
Latest NewsDolphins | Albert Wilson on the cutting block? (Mon Jan 13, 10:33 PM) - Miami Dolphins WR Albert Wilson is scheduled to count $10.833 million against the 2020 salary cap and carries a dead-cap charge of $1.333, making him a possible cut for the Dolphins. Our View: Calf and hip injuries limited Wilson in 2019 and he was only able to play in 13 games this past season. Wilson had 43 catches for 351 yards and only one touchdown. He has not worked out as the team had hoped and the Dolphins may want to move on to free up cap space and add better talent to the position.
