Marquess Wilson played on 29-of-59 snaps (49.1 percent) in Sunday's win over the Bucs.
It was a major downgrade from Week 11, when Wilson was in on 74.3 percent of the snaps. Regardless, he's seen just seven targets over the last two weeks and produced 3-21-0. Wilson is only a Brandon Marshall/Alshon Jeffery handcuff in redraft, but a strong hold in Dynasty. Nov 24 - 11:34 AM

Date:

Marquess Wilson caught 1-of-3 targets for 10 yards Week 12 against the Bucs.

Both of the missed targets were drops by Wilson, though one of the throws was barely above his shoelaces. Clearly the fifth option in an inconsistent passing game, Wilson has little re-draft value. He is still a great dynasty stash.
Nov 23 - 4:43 PM

Bears WR Marquess Wilson caught 2-of-4 targets for 11 yards in his 2014 debut in Sunday's Week 11 win over Minnesota.

He managed gains of six and five yards. Wilson just came off of injured reserve-designated for return after fracturing his collarbone during the preseason. Wilson is worth rostering in all Dynasty leagues, but will likely struggle for re-draft relevance as the Bears' third receiver down the stretch.
Nov 16 - 5:06 PM

Bears WR Marquess Wilson is active for Week 11 against Minnesota.

The promising sophomore wideout will operate as Chicago's No. 3 receiver, as Josh Morgan is inactive. Wilson is a prime Dynasty league prospect.
Nov 16 - 11:43 AM

Bears activated WR Marquess Wilson (collarbone) from injured reserve-designated for return.

The Bears will hope Wilson adds a Martavis Bryant-like spark to their sputtering offense. Wilson is worth rostering in 16-team leagues in hopes of a fast finish. When healthy, he is one of our favorite Dynasty prospects.
Nov 14 - 2:21 PM

Marquess Wilson (broken collarbone, I.R./return) resumed practicing Wednesday.

Wilson has been sidelined since training camp, and isn't expected to be activated for Sunday's game against the Packers. The Bears have a three-week window to add him to their roster.
Nov 5 - 2:57 PM

The Bears do not expect WR Marquess Wilson (broken collarbone, I.R./return) to be activated for Sunday's game against the Packers.

Wilson might finally resume practicing, but he's week to week as he cools his heels on I.R./return. Wilson remains an upside stash in Dynasty leagues, but won't make a re-draft impact this season.
Nov 3 - 2:53 PM

The Bears are optimistic WR Marquess Wilson (broken collarbone) will begin practicing Week 10.

Wilson is eligible to return following the Bears' Week 9 bye, but he has yet to begin practicing and is unlikely to be ready. He has huge long-term upside, but is going to find targets hard to come by in Chicago's offense. Santonio Holmes and Josh Morgan have combined for 21 targets through eight games this season.
Nov 1 - 12:33 PM

Bears WR Marquess Wilson (broken collarbone) is eligible to return from the injured reserve-designated for return list in Week 10.

After playing the Patriots on Sunday, the Bears have a bye in Week 9. Wilson will be eligible return in the following game. Chicago has been missing a third receiver from its 2014 offense with Santonio Holmes and Josh Morgan sharing the role. A 22-year-old with huge long-term upside, Wilson should be owned in all Dynasty leagues and is worth a look for 16-team re-draft leaguers as well.
Oct 25 - 5:44 PM

Bears placed WR Marquess Wilson (broken collarbone) on injured reserve/designated to return.

Wilson will be eligible to return in Week 10, as the Bears are on bye in Week 9. That would be a best-case scenario after Wilson was given a 12-14 week timeline upon going down on August 4. Wilson had been shaping up as an intriguing sleeper, but is unlikely to come into any re-draft value after the Bears signed Santonio Holmes to take his place behind Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall. Unless Holmes proves to have nothing left, Wilson will be returning as the No. 4 receiver.
Sep 2 - 4:42 PM

Bears WR Marquess Wilson (broken right collarbone) is expected to be sidelined until "at least" midseason.

Wilson broke his collarbone in three separate places. The specific timeline is 12-14 weeks. It means he'll almost certainly begin the year on injured reserve/designated to return, and leaves the door open for Santonio Holmes to run away with No. 3 duties. I.R./return would make Wilson ineligible to return before Week 10, as the Bears are on bye in Week 9. Week 10 would be a best-case scenario, and isn't terribly likely. Wilson no longer has re-draft upside for the 2014 season, but remains a hold in Dynasty leagues.

Marquess Wilson (broken right collarbone) underwent surgery Tuesday morning.

The Bears haven't announced a timetable or whether he's a candidate for I.R./designated for return. Aaron Rodgers sustained a similar injury last year and missed eight weeks, but Marques Colston returned in two weeks from his break. Wilson remains on our stash radar was an ascending player. He was one Brandon Marshall/Alshon Jeffery injury away from a monster opportunity.

Bears WR Marquess Wilson suffered a fractured clavicle during Monday's training camp practice.

The clavicle is also known as the collarbone, and typically we see players return from this sort of injury within 6-8 weeks. Wilson isn't going to be ready for the Bears' season opener, but he does figure to maintain a 53-man roster spot barring placement on the I.R./designated for return list, something we wouldn't anticipate at this stage. 21-year-old Wilson lit up Saturday's live intrasquad scrimmage and has run away with Chicago's No. 3 wideout job. Expect Brandon Marshall, Alshon Jeffery, and Martellus Bennett to add a few early-season targets. Josh Morgan may open the year as the Bears' third receiver now.
Aug 4 - 2:34 PM

Marquess Wilson is listed as the direct backup to "X" receiver Brandon Marshall on the Bears' first unofficial depth chart.

It's an indication Wilson is the No. 2 X, with Alshon Jeffery at Z. In three-wide packages, Wilson will enter games this season as Chicago's No. 2 outside receiver, with Marshall or Jeffery playing in the slot. Wilson reportedly beat Charles Tillman for a 20-yard sideline catch in Saturday's scrimmage. We also saw video of him catching a downfield bomb in tight double coverage.
Aug 3 - 3:54 PM

ESPN Chicago believes the Bears' No. 3 receiver job will be Marquess Wilson's unless he "falters significantly."

The only real competitor for Wilson is veteran Josh Morgan. Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery have taken Wilson under their wings this spring, and he's been in the weight room adding over 20 pounds to his 6-foot-3 frame. Wilson's re-draft value isn't very high, but he'll make things easier for Marshall and Jeffery in real life. If either gets injured, then Wilson would skyrocket up the ranks.
