2019 Fantasy Outlook
Wilkins had his moments in his first NFL campaign last year, running for a season-high 61 yards on 10 carries Week 2 and busting out a 53-yard dash on his only tote Week 10, but for the most part he found himself taking a back seat to Marlon Mack and fellow rookie Nyheim Hines in 2018. Wilkins' best asset is his speed, but a lack of power or elusiveness means he needs to be schemed open rather than having the ability to create extra yards for himself. Fortunately, that's not a big problem on a Colts squad with one of the league's best offensive lines, but the Mississippi product needs to improve as a receiver and pass blocker if he wants to get on the field more often. Indianapolis also added Spencer Ware to the backfield mix this offseason, putting more pressure on Wilkins to take a step forward. A poor showing this summer could place the second-year pro on the roster bubble in Indianapolis. Read Past Outlooks

Earns season-high seven carries
RBIndianapolis Colts
October 8, 2019
Wilkins ran for 28 yards on seven carries during Sunday's 19-13 win over the Chiefs.
ANALYSIS
The Colts came out slugging Sunday night, leaning heavily on the offensive line on the way to 45 rushing attempts as compared to 29 dropbacks. While Marlon Mack did the heavy lifting, the formula benefited Wilkins slightly more than fellow backup Nyheim Hines as Wilkins held a 7-to-6 advantage in touches, though Hines ended up with more yards. Assuming Indy looks to keep it going on the ground, the Texans should offer a little more resistance in Week 7 with a 12th-ranked run defense surrendering a modest 95 rushing yards per game.

2018 Fantasy Outlook
A fifth-round pick in the 2018 draft, Wilkins broke out in his final season at Mississippi, leaving would-be tacklers in the dust to gain yards in big chunks. More than 10 percent of his runs last year went for at least 15 yards, a better rate than Alvin Kamara's NFL-leading 9.2 percent. At 6-1, 217, Wilkins doesn't run with much power and doesn't gain many yards after contact. He's also unproven as a receiver and his pass-protection skills need a lot of work, potentially limiting his snaps as a pro. Indianapolis heads into the season without an established lead back, opening the door for Wilkins to carve out a big role with an impressive training camp, but he could just as easily find himself stuck firmly on the bench behind Marlon Mack, Robert Turbin and Nyheim Hines.
