Cedrick Wilson start or sit: Week 18 fantasy football advice

We go over the fantasy football outlook of Cedrick Wilson ahead of the Dallas Cowboys Week 18 matchup against the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Dallas Cowboys will be leaning on Cedrick Wilson as their third receiver with Michael Gallup done for the season with a torn ACL. Wilson will look to build off his Week 17 outing in Saturday night’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Football analysis: Cowboys WR Cedrick Wilson

The 26-year-old wide receiver had more than five receptions in a game for the first time since Week 12 against the Las Vegas Raiders. Last week against the Cardinals, Wilson had six receptions (six targets) for 35 yards and a touchdown.

The last time Wilson scored a touchdown was in Week 8 against the Minnesota Vikings, where he also had three receptions (three targets) for 84 yards. The former Boise State wideout has a stingy matchup against the Eagles’ defense, which improved leaps and bounds since the first time these two NFC East rivals played each other in Week 3.

Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation

The Cowboys aren’t sitting any of their starters for the regular-season finale, which means Wilson should get some snaps and put him on the radar as a FLEX option in fantasy.
