Marquess Wilson caught seven passes for 66 yards in Sunday's Week 16 loss to the Lions.

Wilson again played every snap outside of a brief absence to work through a knee bruise. But he didn't get any deep shots, instead consistently working underneath on slants and comeback routes. He dropped two of his 10 targets. Still, we've seen enough from Wilson to think he can at least be a solid No. 3 receiver in this league. The Bears wrap the season against the Vikings next week.
Dec 21 - 4:32 PM

Marquess Wilson caught three passes for 16 yards and one touchdown in the Bears' Week 15 loss to the Saints.

Filling in as the No. 2 receiver behind Alshon Jeffery, Wilson was targeted six times. His one-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter came on a little drag route in the front of the end zone. Most notably in the fantasy community, the score won Drew Dinkmeyer of RotoExperts $1 million in a DFS tournament. Wilson could have had a bigger night, but Jay Cutler missed him deep on what would have been a long touchdown. Wilson will be a WR3/4 next week against the Lions.

The Bears are expected to start Marquess Wilson in place of Brandon Marshall (ribs, lung) going forward.

Wilson caught 82 balls for 1,388 yards (16.9 YPR) and scored 12 touchdowns as a sophomore at Washington State. He quit the team as a junior, alleging "abuse" by coach Mike Leach. That allowed the Bears to steal a talented, fast 6-foot-4 wideout in the seventh-round of the 2013 draft, and they showed confidence in him this past offseason by letting Earl Bennett walk. A broken collarbone derailed him a bit, but now Wilson has a monster opportunity as an every-down player in Marc Trestman's offense. Josh Morgan is expected to slide into the No. 3/slot role. Wilson has immediate WR3 appeal in a home game against the Saints Week 15.
Dec 8 - 11:35 AM

Marquess Wilson caught 2-of-5 targets for 19 yards in Chicago's Week 14 loss to the Cowboys.

The five targets came with a price, as Wilson appeared to suffer a right arm injury. Even as his right side slumped, however, he stayed in the game. Wilson missed the first two months of the season with a broken-right collarbone. Depending on his health, Wilson could be in for a bigger role in Week 15, as Brandon Marshall's (ribs) status is up in the air.
Dec 5 - 12:28 AM

Marquess Wilson was held without a catch in the Bears' Week 13 loss to the Lions.

Wilson nearly made a circus catch along the sideline on his lone target, but couldn't get both feet in bounds. Wilson remains a highly-intriguing hold in dynasty leagues, but is miles from fantasy relevance in re-draft formats.
Nov 27 - 4:28 PM

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

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.
