Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 6 vs CHI (9 / 6 / 155 / 2 rec, 1 / -5 / 0 rush)
The Dolphins could not find any answers for the Bears until the 4th quarter, and that also happens to be when they finally decided to get Wilson involved. He scored both touchdowns in the 4th to help tie the game when it looked like the Bears were going to run away with it. The first touchdown was a 43-yard sprint after he caught the ball around the line of scrimmage. All Osweiler did was throw it in his direction and Wilson followed a convoy of blockers down the sideline and into the end zone. The second was a 75-yard quick hit again across the middle of the field. Wilson took the quick slant to the house and out ran every defender that came anywhere near him. There was not a lot of finesse or great route running on either of his touchdowns, just pure speed and an ability to follow the initial blocks. Wilson caught 6 of his 9 targets and broke free on 2 of them for long touchdowns. This should easily be his best game of the season and it came at a time where it looked like the Dolphins were going to get blown out by the Bears.
2018 Week 5 vs CIN (6 / 5 / 43 / 0 rec)
It was a tough day all around the offense this week, and Wilson ended up with a similar line to Amendola. He caught 5 of his 6 targets and helped to move the chains a few times, but he could not break free and find the end zone. His longest play of the day was a 16-yard catch and run, but aside from that he was tackled almost immediately. No Dolphin receiver was able to create separation from their man or find any soft spots in coverage this week. Wilson is getting an extended look with Davante Parker inactive again this week.
2018 Week 4 vs NE (6 / 4 / 19 / 0 rec, 1 / 2 / 0 rush)
There is not a lot that went right for the Dolphins on offense and that includes Wilson. The biggest thing to note was he saw 6 targets this week and that tied Kenny Stills for the team lead. With Jakeem Grant also waiting in the wings it is tough to feel confident in either receiver. Wilson was at least given the chance to have a better game today. The Dolphins will need a receiver to step up behind Stills if they want to put forth a better showing against the Bengals next week.
2018 Week 3 vs OAK (2 / 2 / 74 / 1 rec)
The entire game really comes down to 2 plays for Wilson. He had a 74-yard touchdown catch and threw a 52-yard touchdown on a trick play. His touchdown catch was the reverse play that Grant scored his 18-yard jet sweep on. Tannehill pitched the ball forward to Wilson as he came in motion and then a sea of blockers opened things up for him to go untouched into the end zone. The touchdown throw was a thing of beauty. Tannehill handed the ball off to Drake, who then pitched the ball to Wilson who had come in motion towards the line of scrimmage, Wilson continued to roll right, and found a wide-open Grant on a wheel route. There were a lot of moving parts with this play and it was almost amazing that there was no illegal motion or formation. This is not the kind of play that Miami is going to go to every week, but it is good to know they have it in their back pocket and that they can trust Wilson to throw a strike when needed.
2018 Week 2 vs NYJ (5 / 3 / 37 / 1 rec, 2 / 8 / 0 rush)
The Dolphins do not have a great core of receivers and it seems like it could be anyone who steps up each week and makes a play. Wilson had about as much luck as any other receiver in regard to targets and receptions, but he did manage to find the end zone. Wilson ran an inside crossing route and found himself all alone when the tight end cleared out the linebackers up the seam. Wilson then simply out ran his man in coverage and down the opposite sideline for a touchdown. The safeties were occupied on the other side of the field covering the deep routes and could not get over in time to make a tackle. Wilson was not touched on the play until he crossed the goal line right at the pylon. Wilson was also given 2 carries in the running game but did not do very much with them.
