After a solid game against the Lions, Marquess Wilson only had two catches for 18 yards versus the Vikings on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: The question to ask is if Wilson and Jay Cutler have the same chemistry as Wilson had with backup QB Jimmy Clausen. With the general manager and coaching changes, it will be interesting how the new regime utilizes Wilson. Wilson has the potential to be a deep threat, but did not have the opportunities to prove that late this season. Keep Wilson on your radar for next season as a possible bench player with high upside.

Marquess Wilson proved he can be more than a third of fourth option. Wilson was targeted 10 times on Sunday against the Lions. He finished with seven catches for 66 yards.
Fantasy Impact: Marquess Wilson is an interesting prospect. The downside with Wilson is no one knows how the Bears will perform next season. Look to stash Wilson as a possible sleeper in deeper leagues next year. He has WR2 value in the final game against Minnesota.

It was announced late Wednesday that Jay Cutler will sit and Jimmy Clausen will start against the Lions on Sunday.
Fantasy Impact: Marquess Wilson had three catches and a touchdown last week. He would like to build on that performance this week against the Lions. However, the Bears changed quarterbacks and Jimmy Clausen will be starting. Marquess Wilson is a high-risk, high-reward WR4. With your championship likely on the line this week, look for a more consistent option.

On a night where QB Jay Cutler completed only 15 passes, Marquess Wilson scored his first NFL touchdown. Wilson had three catches for 16 yards on five targets. His touchdown catch was a one-yard catch from the goal-line.
Fantasy Impact: The Bears had high hopes for Marquess Wilson going into the season. A broken clavicle before the season started set him back. However, with Brandon Marshall sidelined, Wilson has WR4 value with WR3 upside. The problem with Wilson is the poor production from the Bears offense as a whole. Wilson is a speed guy; to have three catches for 16 yards against a bad Saints defense shows how the Bears' play-calling is mismanaging Wilson's talents. Wilson is too risky to play during playoff and championship weeks. Add him to your watchlist for next year.

With Brandon Marshall's rib injury, Marquess Wilson will see more playing time. The second-year wideout caught two balls for 19 yards on five targets.
Fantasy Impact: Marquess Wilson is in line to see a huge increase in targets over the last three games. His fantasy value has gone from none to a WR3 with WR2 potential. Wilson showed how fast he is against the Cowboys, but Cutler threw a sure touchdown to the inside shoulder and just out of reach of the young receiver. Wilson deserves a waiver wire stash in deep bench and keeper leagues.

Marquess Wilson played for the first time this season. He returned from a broken clavicle and the Bears hoped he would provide the spark their offense desperately needed. In his first regular season game this year, Wilson had two catches for 11 yards on four targets.
Fantasy Impact: At this point Marquess Wilson does not deserve a roster spot. The Bears offense is not putting up enough points to share the wealth of fantasy points beyond their top few guys. Wilson will see more looks as the season continues, but at this point he has little to no fantasy value. If you are in a deeper league you might want to add him to your watch list.

Chicago Bears wide receiver Marquess Wilson is very close to playing as evident by the Bears waiving teammate Santonio Holmes. By waiving Holmes, this opens an active roster spot for Wilson. Wilson might be ready to play on Sunday. (Source: ESPN Chicago
Fantasy Impact: With Wilson's return looming, he is definitely worth a speculative add in deep leagues and dynasty leagues. He might be what the Bears need to help their disappointing offense.

For the first time in three months, wide receiver Marquess Wilson practiced today. By practicing, the Bears have three weeks to decide to activate him, or to keep him on the injured reserve. (Source: Chicago Football
Fantasy Impact: No word yet if he will play on Sunday. However, Wilson practicing is a great sign as he might soon provide a much-needed spark for this offense. For now, keep you eye on him or even stash him in deeper leagues.

Tuesday, the Bears placed Marquess Wilson on the injured reserve with the designation to return. Wilson can practice after Week 6 and will be eligible to return to play after Week 8. The first game the WR can participate in would be on November 9 versus the Packers. (Source: ChicagoBears.com
Fantasy Impact: The Bears had high hopes for the second year WR before he broke his clavicle during training camp. Wilson was to be the Bears No. 3 WR this year, which gave him some intrigue as a late round flier. But after the signing of Santonio Holmes, Wilson will be the No.4 WR at best when he returns this season. There is little to no fantasy value for the former Washington State Cougar until 2015.

During practice, Wilson landed on his shoulder while diving for a pass. The 2nd year receiver needed to be carted off. Doctors later determined Wilson had broken his clavicle. The time frame on the injury is undetermined, but undoubtedly will be an extended period of time. (Source: Chicago Tribune
Fantasy Impact: The injury to Wilson is disappointing as he was projected to be the No. 3 WR in the Bears high flying offense. At this point Wilson should drop off all draft boards as his recovery could sideline him the entire season. Look to veterans Josh Morgan and Eric Weems to pick up the slack.

Marquess Wilson was carted off the field after diving for a deep pass. He was favoring his right side. After the imcomplete pass, trainers tended to him for about five minutes prior to putting on cart. (Source: Chicago Tribune
Fantasy Impact: Wilson was but a lock as the number 3 wide receiver. In an offense that already has many weapons, Wilson could be a sleeper, especially in dynasty formats. Stay tuned for an injury update, but if out an extended period of time, it only hurts Wilson's value.

Second year WR Marquess Wilson appears to be in the lead in his training camp battle for the No. 3 WR spot with veteran WR Josh Morgan. Since training with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffry in the offseason, Wilson entered camp as the favorite to win the job and he has done nothing so far to disprove that conclusion. (Source: ESPN
Fantasy Impact: Playing as the bears No. 3 receiver behind top ten fantasy WRs Marshall and Jeffery, leaves little targets to go around. But even an injured and inconsistent Earl Bennett had 32 receptions and 4 TDs as the Bears No. 3 receiver in 2013. In the Bears high powered offense, the No.3 WR has the potential of putting up a respectable fantasy season. At this point Wilson is worth only a look as a late round draft pick in the deepest of redraft leagues (14+ team), but is someone worth a flyer in deep (12+ team) dynasty or keeper leagues.

BALLER MOVE: Add in Deeper PPR Leagues OWNED IN: 6% of Fleaflicker leagues ANALYSIS: I wouldn’t necessarily consider Wilson a deep sleeper, but he was probably on the waiver wire in almost every league outside of dynasties.

This week in his Waiver Wire Wonders, Doug Coutts gave us a couple of wide receivers, Marquess Wilson and Cole Beasley, that would be worth adding. But before you make a move, let's take a look at their remaining strength of schedules to see if one of these WRs has a a clear-cut advantage.
