We should get to see a lot of Wilson this Friday as both Kenny Stills and DeVante Parker will be out.

• First in the NFL in yards of separation (4.1) between receiver and defender on passing targets in 2017. (Next Gen Stats).
• First in the NFL in missed tackles per reception between 2014-2017. (Pro Football Focus).
Q: What’s the key to getting that separation from defenders?
Wilson: You have to know what the defense has. You have to know how to get it going against zone or man. Mostly it really comes off of speed. Speed is one of the biggest things I have. Once I can get somebody running and committed to going somewhere and either cross their face or break out, that’s pretty much where the separation comes.
Q: How do you make guys miss?
Wilson: I’m a running back out there running routes, man. I’ve played running back all my life. As soon as I get the ball in my hands I turn into a running back. Whether it’s breaking an arm tackle or makings somebody miss in the open field, that’s my job. So I take pride in that. And they keep allowing me to do it. I’m going to keep doing it.
