Editor’s Note: I pride myself in coming up with fun headlines and was very close to going to with “Prince Albert in a Tuna Fish Can” for this one today. For future reference, even Ken Kelly has his limits.
Editor’s Note #2: This article posted right before the Dolphins agreed to terms with Danny Amendola. We’ll examine the ramifications of that signing as well.
Albert Wilson has agreed to terms on a three-year contract for $24 million with the Miami Dolphins. The move makes sense as Miami was likely looking for extra help in the slot after trading Jarvis Landry away to the Browns earlier this week. While it’s unlikely Wilson will be able to provide the level of success in the short passing game Landry did (few can as he posted a record 400 catches in his first four seasons), he looks like an above average replacement for the role with interesting athletic ability and recent production numbers to be more fantasy relevant than he has been recently.
Let’s take a closer look at the newest Dolphin as we begin what will be an onslought of free agency articles and breakdowns this week in the next few days.
Albert Wilsons ADP Chart*
*As a reminder, ADP charts available on every DLF player page. You can view Wilson’s here.
Since 2014, we see Wilson’s ADP hit its apex at 155.67 in March of 2015. He has recently dropped out of the ADP rankings, going undrafted (outside of the top 241 players) this March. With the trade, it’s a near certainty his value starts to increase. Anyone who has kept him at the back of their roster can look to either keep him and see just how high it will climb or trade him for an immediate value return.
