Albert Wilson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for Week 4 against the Bengals.

Wilson was limited in practice this week, but is on track to play Sunday. The Chiefs would be better off giving his snaps to Chris Conley. Wilson has three catches for 25 yards through three weeks.
Oct 2 - 6:17 PM

Albert Wilson failed to catch any of his three targets in the Chiefs' Week 3 loss to the Packers on Monday night.

Alex Smith took one deep shot to Wilson down the right sideline but came up empty. Wilson has three catches for 25 scoreless yards through three weeks.
Sep 29 - 1:07 AM

Albert Wilson was held without a catch on one target in Kansas City's Week 2 loss to the Broncos.

Wilson is comfortably ahead of Jason Avant and Chris Conley on the depth chart, but it isn't translating to looks. Wilson is miles from relevance in re-draft leagues.
Sep 18 - 1:06 AM

Albert Wilson (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 2 against the Broncos.

Wilson played 57-of-70 snaps Week 1 against the Texans as the Chiefs' No. 2 receiver, securing all three of his targets for 25 yards. He's a distant No. 4 option in the passing attack behind Jeremy Maclin, Travis Kelce, and Jamaal Charles.
Sep 15 - 9:41 PM

Albert Wilson secured 3-of-3 targets for 25 yards in the Chiefs' Week 1 win over the Texans.

Wilson started over rookie Chris Conley, but was the No. 4 receiving option for the Chiefs behind Jeremy Maclin, Travis Kelce, and Jamaal Charles. Expect Wilson to have a few decent games this year if he holds the job, but he'll have no chance at fantasy consistency barring an injury to Maclin.

Albert Wilson (shoulder) is practicing in full for Week 1.

Wilson’s shoulder issue isn't considered a major concern. He’s on track to open the season opposite Jeremy Maclin, but will be pushed by Chris Conley.
Sep 9 - 4:19 PM

The Chiefs expect Albert Wilson to be "fine" after Friday night's shoulder scare.

He escaped with a mild AC sprain in the shoulder. It's a "minor deal," per coach Andy Reid. Wilson is currently on track to open the season starting opposite Jeremy Maclin, but should be feeling some heat from Chris Conley.
Aug 28 - 11:35 PM

Albert Wilson left Friday's preseason game with a shoulder injury.

Wilson went down after making a 16-yard catch on the opening drive. The Chiefs are listing his return as questionable, but he's likely done for the game. Wilson's injury gives rookie Chris Conley a chance to play opposite Jeremy Maclin.
Aug 28 - 8:34 PM

ESPN Chiefs reporter Adam Teicher reports WR Albert Wilson has been "mostly quiet in training camp and the preseason."

Wilson generated some buzz with a nice finish to 2014, but has only two catches for 15 yards through two preseason games. He's been the subject of relatively few "puff pieces" from Chiefs practice since the beginning of OTAs. Wilson isn't a bad WR5 flier in 14-team leagues, but his upside is limited with Jeremy Maclin and Travis Kelce set to dominate targets in the Chiefs' passing game.
Aug 27 - 11:11 PM

Albert Wilson is listed as a starter on the Chiefs' first depth chart of training camp.

With Chris Conley (knee) on the shelf, Wilson is listed as the first-team No. 2 receiver ahead of De'Anthony Thomas. Jeremy Maclin is the other starter, with slot receiver Jason Avant listed behind him. Wilson is in the driver's seat to open the year as an every-down player. He's worth a look late in MFL10s.
Aug 8 - 12:12 AM

Chiefs OC Doug Pederson said Alex Smith and Albert Wilson are "really on the same page."

In the three games that both Smith and Wilson started together last year, Wilson averaged 4.0 catches for 69.6 yards with no touchdowns. We're not going to go overboard on a 5-foot-9 complementary receiver playing with a very conservative quarterback, but Wilson has more natural ability than perceived. He's a flier in deeper formats, especially with Chris Conley nursing a knee issue.
Aug 4 - 11:54 AM

Chiefs WR Albert Wilson is opening camp as a starter opposite Jeremy Maclin.

Wilson is battling third-rounder Chris Conley for No. 2 duties. A 2014 undrafted free agent, Wilson steadily climbed the depth chart as a rookie before catching 12 passes over Kansas City's final four games. Wilson offers little-to-no re-draft appeal behind Travis Kelce and Jeremy Maclin for targets, but could make some noise as a cheap best-ball pick and/or DFS play this season.
Jul 27 - 2:17 PM

Chiefs coach Andy Reid expects WR Albert Wilson (hamstring) to be ready for minicamp.

Reid described Wilson's injury as a "knot." Even if Wilson isn't ready for minicamp, his training-camp status is not in doubt. Wilson could put himself on the WR3/4 radar if he wins starting duties opposite Jeremy Maclin.
Jun 4 - 2:03 PM

Chiefs WR Albert Wilson suffered a strained hamstring in Wednesday's OTA.

He'll likely miss the remainder of OTAs and seems unlikely to participate in minicamp later this month. Wilson came on late in the season and finished with a 16-260-0 receiving line. He's expected to compete with rookie Chris Conley for the starting job opposite new No. 1 receiver Jeremy Maclin.
