Marquess Wilson, WR, Bears
|WR - #115||334.94||CHI||Probable||3 years||23||6'4||199|
2015 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)Last updated on Dec-06-2015 by Shawn Childs
Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Over his last six games, Wilson only has 13 catches for 230 yards on 25 targets. On the year he only has one TD and one 100-yard receiving game, while averaging 4.6 targets per game. Even with his short chances he has had starting snaps in every game this year. The 49ers have weakness at CB2 (Kenneth Acker), which may lead to a possible uptick game if San Fran tries to take away Jeffery.
Wilson wasn't able to make an impact in his rookie season in 2013. He was only on the field for 76 plays, which resulted in two catches for 13 yards. In his three seasons at Washington State, he caught 189 passes for 3207 yards and 23 TDs. He showed monster upside in his sophomore year when he caught 82 balls for 1388 yards and 12 TDs. Wilson showed excellent short route speed in college with NFL average WR speed. In his senior year, he quit playing football when he didn't agree with the techniques taken by the Cougars coaching staff. His skill set will just add more explosiveness to the Bears passing attack. His biggest weakness was his lack of strength which he addressed this off-season. He entered the 2013 draft at 194 lbs. In 2014, he reported to training camp at 207 lbs., which just shows his commitment to the game. Unfortunately, Wilson broke his collarbone in early in August, which led to nine missed games. Over his last seven games, Marquess averaged 55 snaps per game as the WR3. He caught 17 of his 32 targets for 140 yards and a touchdown. Wilson definitely has upside, but his rank on the depth chart may prevent him from getting many opportunities.
