Wilson was the leading scorer last week in most fantasy leagues and may need to do more going forward. If you will remember, his rookie season, he was asked to do a lot and was fantasy gold for the second half of the season because of his legs. If Lynch fails to move the chains, Wilson could be asked to runs again.
The Bears looked awful last week against the visiting Dolphins and now have to go on the road to face Tom Brady who has been outstanding the past two weeks. Tom Brady owners are glad they stuck with him.

Came out like gangbusters last week and CAR defense has been trash so keep him rolling.
At home, on fire and facing bad Bears D. Not much to dislike here.

Brady brings 9:0 TD:INT over last three into this game against a Bears D allowing a generous 12 passing TDs and 263 passing YPG this season.

Carolina has allowed the 4th most fantasy points to quarterbacks the last 3 weeks, Wilson should be a solid QB1 against this struggling defense.
The Chicago Bears are 17th against fantasy quarterbacks the last 3 weeks and the locker room turmoil from last week could be a sign this team is ready to turn on each other and implode.
