Wilson was limited to 12 special teams snaps in Thursday's 20-14 win over the Panthers and returned three punts for 21 yards. He muffed one of those opportunities but recovered.
Through two games, Wilson hasn't been afforded the opportunity to prove he can carry over the improvement as a receiver he'd shown throughout OTAs, training camp and preseason. However, the shifty wideout did provide a nifty 11-yard return Thursday. He still appears to slot in behind Justin Watson on the receiver depth chart, however, as Watson actually logged two snaps from scrimmage. As long as the players in front of him enjoy good health, Wilson's role figures to remain what it is at present.
Wilson returned one punt for no gain in the Buccaneers' 31-17 loss to the 49ers on Sunday. He was not targeted in the passing game.
Wilson logged six snaps from scrimmage and added 13 on special teams, and he notably worked as the No. 4 receiver ahead of Justin Watson. While that didn't equate to any offensive stats in Week 1, the disjointed nature of Jameis Winston's performance could have had a part to play. Wilson's punt returner job will be his most consistent path to potential production from game to game for the time being, but based on the notable improvement he displayed as a receiver in training camp and preseason, he's likely to eventually get involved as a pass catcher as well.
