2014 Outlook: Do Not DraftLast updated on Aug-18-2014 by Rob Warner
SPEEDY SLEEPER: Earl Bennett was released so the No. 3 WR job is Wilson's for the taking. The 2013 rookie (7th round pick) was a non-factor last season (two catches for 13 yards), but he has bulked up from 187 to 207 lbs. (should help him better compete against press coverage). The Washington State alum has serious deep speed (4.45 forty at the combine) and the height (6'3) to be a red zone jump ball specialist similar to the Bears starting duo. Wilson clashed with the coaching staff during his final collegiate season and eventually left the team. In his sophomore year (2011) he was named 2nd team all-conference after hauling in 83 catches for 1,388 yards and 12 touchdowns. Consider Wilson well worth a flier in dynasty leagues in the Bears pass happy attack (Brandon Marshall's guaranteed money runs out in 2016 which could open the door for Wilson to earn a starting job).
UPDATE: Suffers a broken collarbone and will be out until mid-season. Do not draft unless you are in a dynasty league.
