Marquess Wilson secured four of five targets for 44 yards in the Bears' Week 12 win over the Packers.
This wasn’t the shootout we were expecting but Wilson made the most of his limited targets. The lousy weather conditions prevented Jay Cutler from looking deep, so instead he mostly opted for screen passes and short sideline routes. That played to Wilson’s strength as he proved very explosive whenever Cutler put him in space. Alshon Jeffery is still the go-to guy but Wilson does carry some sleeper value, particularly while Martellus Bennett and Eddie Royal are out with injuries. Nov 27 - 1:00 AM

Marquess Wilson caught 4-of-7 targets for 102 yards in Sunday's Week 11 loss to the Broncos.

Wilson's seven targets were a team high. He showed good YAC ability, but was tackled short of the end-zone on a 40-yard catch in the fourth quarter. Wilson is a strong play whenever Alshon Jeffery and Eddie Royal sit. He'll remain the No. 1 receiver if Jeffery can't return on a short week.
Nov 22 - 5:10 PM

Marquess Wilson caught 1-of-3 targets for one yard in the Bears' Week 10 win over the Rams.

Even with Eddie Royal (knee) out the past two games, Wilson has been a non-factor.
Nov 15 - 6:44 PM

Marquess Wilson caught 1-of-3 targets for 15 yards in the Bears' Week 9 win over the Chargers on Monday night.

Wilson got the start as the No. 2 receiver in place of an injured Eddie Royal (knee), but was an afterthought behind target hogs Alshon Jeffery (16) and Martellus Bennett (nine), while Jeremy Langford touched the ball 21 times. Wilson will be a WR5 next week on the road against the Rams.
Nov 10 - 12:33 AM

Marquess Wilson will start Monday night against the Chargers.

With Eddie Royal (knee) sidelined, Wilson will play opposite Alshon Jeffery. He’s a candidate for six-plus targets in what could be a high-scoring game. Wilson had a 6/85/1 line in a Week 5 start against the Chiefs.
Nov 7 - 7:32 PM

Marquess Wilson secured 1-of-3 targets for 14 yards in the Bears' Week 8 loss to the Vikings.

Wilson opened the game as the Bears' No. 3 receiver, but was elevated to No. 2 when Eddie Royal (knee) left injured, and did not return. Wilson could conceivably start in Week 9 against the Chargers if Royal is unable to play.
Nov 1 - 4:34 PM

Marquess Wilson caught 2-of-4 targets for 54 yards Week 6 against the Lions.

Wilson had a 46-yard catch over a Lions' defender on the first drive of the third quarter, but he was an afterthought for most of the day with Alshon Jeffery and Eddie Royal back healthy. Wilson showed he can produce when given opportunities, but those will be difficult to find as long as Jeffery and Royal are healthy.
Oct 18 - 6:28 PM

Marquess Wilson caught 6-of-8 targets for 85 yards and one touchdown in the Bears' Week 5 win over the Chiefs.

With both Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) and Eddie Royal (ankle) both out, Wilson was the default No. 1 receiver. He had three catches for 24 yards on the first three possessions before quieting down for a couple quarters and then catching a beautiful 22-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter. Wilson also drew a long defensive pass interference penalty to set up Matt Forte's game-winning seven-yard score deep into the fourth quarter. Wilson paid off huge at his near-minimum DFS price. Jeffery and Royal should be back Week 6 in Detroit.
Oct 11 - 5:06 PM

Marquess Wilson caught 6-of-9 targets for 80 yards Week 4 against the Raiders.

Wilson had a big 35-yard gain in the first half and was tackled at the three-yard line late in the second quarter. Wilson started what ended up being the Bears' game-winning drive with a drop, but he redeemed himself with a great catch to convert a third down later in the drive. Wilson's role will decrease with Alshon Jeffery returning, but he at least looked competent in this game.
Oct 4 - 6:56 PM

Marquess Wilson failed to reel in either of his two targets in the Bears' Week 3 loss to the Seahawks.

Even with Alshon Jeffery out, Wilson's involvement in the Bears' passing game has been minimal at best. Fantasy owners can safely ignore him next week against the Raiders.
Sep 27 - 8:22 PM

Bears WR Marquess Wilson (shoulder) is active for Week 3 against the Seahawks.

Wilson was limited at practice this week. The combination of Seattle's great secondary and Jimmy Claussen's mediocre arm make Wilson a poor fantasy play in Week 3.
Sep 27 - 3:27 PM

Bears WR Marquess Wilson (shoulder) remained limited on Thursday.

Wilson's Week 3 status isn't in doubt. He'll again be running as the Bears' No. 2 receiver in the absence of Alshon Jeffery, but has only three catches through two games. He could go catch-less against the Seahawks' elite secondary.
Sep 24 - 5:38 PM

Marquess Wilson caught 1-of-5 targets for 10 yards in Chicago's Week 2 loss to the Cardinals.

It was a brutal day for Wilson, who was the target on Jimmy Clausen's interception. Patrick Peterson ran Wilson's route better than Wilson did. Wilson will be off the WR5 radar for next week's trip to Seattle even if Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) remains sidelined.
Sep 20 - 6:15 PM

Marquess Wilson caught both of his targets for 59 yards in the Bears' Week 1 loss to the Packers.

He was the No. 3 receiver, as expected, and burned Packers CB Sam Shields for a long 50-yard gain in the second half. That's what Wilson is; a burner. He'll have sporadic box-score numbers and isn't a redraft option in regular-sized leagues. The Bears will host the Cardinals in Week 2.
Sep 13 - 5:19 PM

Marquess Wilson (hamstring) is active for Week 1 against the Packers.

With Alshon Jeffery (calf) and Eddie Royal (hip) also active, Wilson will be limited to No. 3 receiver duties. He's not on the fantasy radar outside of deep leagues. Inactive for the Bears are QB David Fales, CB Tracy Porter, RB Ka'Deem Carey, ILB Jon Bostic, C Hroniss Grasu, OL Tayo Fabuluje, and WR Cam Meredith.
