Jeff Wilson Traded to Dolphins
NFL Week 8 - After the Miami Dolphins traded Chase Edmonds to Denver in their deal for Broncos linebacker Bradley Chubb, they've quickly found their replacement. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, the San Francisco 49ers will send running back Jeff Wilson to Miami in exchange for a 2023 fifth-round pick.
Wilson served as the fill-in for Elijah Mitchell after he went down with a sprained MCL in Week 1. From Weeks 2 through 5, Wilson finished with a 22.6% rushing DVOA and was fourth among running backs in rushing DYAR over that stretch. Wilson saw just seven carries in Week 6 against the Falcons and quickly fell down the depth chart after the 49ers acquired Christian McCaffrey from the Carolina Panthers.
Despite the recent lack of production, Wilson still ranks 12th in DYAR and 10th in DVOA among running backs this year. He joins fellow 49er-turned-Dolphin Raheem Mostert, who currently ranks 10th in DYAR and 11th in DVOA.
Wilson also reunites Miami Dolphins head coach Mike McDaniel, who served as both run game coordinator and offensive coordinator for the 49ers during Wilson's tenure.
