3 - Michael Wilson, WR

Michael Wilson had a great game on paper last week, but he didn’t primarily get involved until the fourth quarter. And the rookie receiver has done enough to at least get more looks his way, thanks to his incredible 17.6 yards per reception on 18 catches so far this year. 

Wilson is also a big target, so quarterback Joshua Dobbs should have no qualms in giving the rookie more chances in one-on-one scenarios. With just 22 targets this season, Wilson’s catch percentage sits at nearly 82 percent, and his 68.2 receiving success percentage is second only to Trey McBride among active Cardinals players. 

No, Dobbs doesn’t have the arm strength to throw the ball deep to Wilson, but it doesn’t mean he should look the other way and opt for shorter throws, especially on third down. Wilson has been underutilized so far in the previous six weeks, and if he gets more opportunities, the first-year receiver could still end up having a sensational year.
