Solid numbers in 2023

January 30, 2024
Wilson recorded 88 tackles (55 solo) while adding three passes defended (two interceptions), one forced fumble and two fumble recoveries over 15 regular-season games in 2023.
ANALYSIS
The 28-year-old safety missed the first two games of the year with a calf injury and didn't start seeing a full workload until Week 5, but Wilson was his usual tackling machine self down the stretch, with 53 of his stops coming in the Cowboys' final seven regular-season games. He's thrived in defensive coordinator Dan Quinn's scheme, but Wilson's 2024 outlook could take a hit if Quinn takes a head coaching job elsewhere this offseason.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Unlikely to stay put
SDallas Cowboys
March 4, 2023
According to Clarence Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, there isn't much optimism that Wilson and the Cowboys will agree to a contract extension.
ANALYSIS
Wilson started all 17 games for the Cowboys in 2022, but his asking price may be beyond what the team is willing to offer, especially with Dallas also attempting to re-sign a few key free agents at other positions. If Wilson walks away in free agency, Dallas would still have a combination of Jayron Kearse, Israel Mukuamu and Malik Hooker -- who's recovering from thumb surgery -- available at safety.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
2023
2021
The 28-year-old rebounded from an injury-marred 2021 to become one of the pillars of the Cowboys secondary last season, topping 100 tackles for the first time in his four-year career and recording a career-high five sacks while playing in all 17 games. Wilson pairs strong tackling with good coverage skills, making him an outstanding fit for coordinator Dan Quinn's defense, and the safety was rewarded with a three-year contract this offseason worth up to $24 million. If he can stay healthy, Wilson again should post excellent IDP production in 2023.
Wilson came out of nowhere to be one of the top defensive back IDPs last year, taking over a starting role in Week 4 and posting strong production almost every week thereafter. By the time the year ended Wilson made a major impact across all categories, producing not just 71 tackles on 671 snaps, but also standout production with sacks, interceptions and fumbles. Dallas didn't add any obvious competition at safety in the offseason, so Wilson seems headed for a three-down role again in 2021, and with that he should safely qualify as a DB1.
