  Patriots | New England works out three WRs    Fri Sep 8, 06:28 PM

Free-agent WRs Gabe Marks (Jets), Jordan Payton (Browns) and Marquess Wilson (Jets) worked out for the New England Patriots Friday, Sept. 8.

  Jets | Marquess Wilson cut    Wed Aug 23, 11:44 AM

New York Jets WR Marquess Wilson was released Wednesday, Aug. 23. Free-agent TE Brandon Z. Barnes (Lions) signed an undisclosed deal with the Jets.

Footballguys view: The Jets don't have a great group of WRs, so this isn't a good sign for Wilson. He'll be hard pressed to latch on with another team even with his speed and playing experience.

  Jets | Gang Green adds Marquess Wilson    Tue Jun 20, 01:57 PM

Free-agent WR Marquess Wilson (Bears) signed an undisclosed contract with the New York Jets on Tuesday, June 20.

Footballguys view: Wilson is a speed merchant on the field but has struggled with staying healthy. A foot injury limited him to just three games with the Bears in 2016. The Jets need competition at the WR position and we'll see if Wilson can latch on as a reserve receiver for 2017.

  Bears | Alshon Jeffery activated    Sat Dec 17, 03:36 PM

Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery was activated from the suspended list Saturday, Dec. 17. The team also placed WR Marquess Wilson (foot) on the Reserve/Injured list.

Footballguys view: Jeffery is back in action this week for the Bears, but it will be interesting to see how he meshes with QB Matt Barkley. The young quarterback admitted he had never thrown a pass to Jeffery in practice before Wednesday. That lack of chemistry and the frigid temperatures expected in Chicago could keep Jeffery's fantasy prospects cool in Week 15.

Footballguys view: Wilson was getting in limited practices this week, but he wasn't ready to play today. Josh Bellamy, Deonte Thompson, and Cameron Meredith will get most of the work at wide receiver today for the Bears.

  Bears | Marquess Wilson injured    Mon Dec 5, 09:14 AM

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (groin) left the game Sunday, Dec. 5, in the first quarter with a strained groin.

Footballguys view: With Wilson out of the lineup, Josh Bellamy got a larger opportunity. If Wilson continues to miss time, then Bellamy could start opposite Cameron Meredith. Bellamy had four catches for 93 yards against the 49ers on Sunday.

  Bears | Marquess Wilson totals 125 yards, TD    Sun Nov 27, 07:46 PM

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson hauled in eight receptions for 125 yards and a touchdown in the Week 12 game against Tennessee Titans. He was targeted 11 times.

Footballguys view: Wilson was also one of many Bears receivers who let down his quarterback with drops or an even bigger day was there. Wilson is only 24 and Alshon Jeffery may not be back with the team next year. He is giving teams including the Bears something to think about as he enters free agency.

  Bears | Marquess Wilson activated from PUP list    Tue Nov 15, 07:38 PM

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (foot) was activated from the Physically Unable to Perform list Tuesday, Nov. 15.

Footballguys view: With Alshon Jeffery suspended, the Bears need depth. Cameron Meredith and Eddie Royal will get most of the targets, with Meredith producing WR3 numbers and Royal a borderline WR3/WR4. Tight end Zach Miller could put up TE1 numbers, however.

  Bears | Marquess Wilson placed on PUP list    Wed Jul 27, 05:21 PM

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (foot) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list Wednesday, July 27. Wilson reported to training camp with a walking boot on his broken foot.

Footballguys view: Wilson is speedy...but he's also hurt all the time. He should begin the regular season on the PUP list for the Bears.

  Bears | Marquess Wilson could start on PUP list    Wed Jun 22, 04:04 PM

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (foot) is expected to begin the regular season on the Physically Unable to Perform list, according to Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune. Wilson would not be eligible to return until Week 6 if he is placed on the PUP list to start the season. WRs Josh Bellamy and Cameron Meredith were the first two names mentioned by Biggs who could play more if Wilson is sidelined.

Footballguys view: Bellamy is a core special teamer who could get more playing time with Wilson out. If there's any fantasy overflow to have here, it will more likely fall to tight end Zach Miller or slot receiver Eddie Royal. Seventh round pick Daniel Braverman could buy a temporary roster spot if Wilson starts the year on the PUP.

  Bears | Marquess Wilson breaks foot again    Wed Jun 15, 01:45 PM

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (foot) re-fractured his foot, and he'll undergo surgery next week.

Footballguys view: He was just getting back into the swing of things, and now he has to have the second surgery on his foot in under a year. We feel the value is Alshon Jeffery and Kevin White anyway, and weren't depending on Wilson for anything but deep depth, but this is still disappointing to hear. He was already on the roster bubble.

  Bears | Marquess Wilson goes to IR    Sat Dec 12, 01:44 PM

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (foot) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Saturday, Dec. 12.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the speedy receiver here. The Bears offense will be without a vertical threat with Wilson out for the rest of the year. Entering the final year of his rookie deal in 2016, Wilson will have to show he can stay healthy and be more consistent in the Bears passing game if he wants to stay in Chicago.

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (foot) has been ruled out for Week 13.

  Bears | Marquess Wilson out Thursday    Thu Dec 3, 02:30 PM

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (foot) is out of practice Thursday, Dec. 3, with a foot injury that head coach John Fox said occurred on the last play of practice Wednesday, Dec. 2.

Footballguys view: Wilson played well two weeks ago, but our expectations aren't that high--even against the 49ers. Start him as a decent WR5 if you need someone as a fill-in due to injury or in deep leagues.

  Bears | Marquess Wilson shines in Week 5    Sun Oct 11, 08:26 PM

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson had eight catches for 85 yards and a touchdown in an 18-17 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 5.

Footballguys view: Wilson stepped up with Alshon Jeffery and Eddie Royal out, and he has now put up two solid weeks in a row. Rookie Kevin White could return in the second half of the season, but the 23-year-old Wilson is showing that he still has a bright future with the Bears.

  Bears | Eddie Royal, Marquess Wilson limited    Thu Sep 24, 06:33 PM

Chicago Bears WR Eddie Royal (back, hip) and WR Marquess Wilson (shoulder) were limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 24.

Footballguys view: Watch Royal's practice participation on Friday. Find a better option if you can. A banged up slot receiver against a Seahawks defense (at home) getting Kam Chancellor back from his holdout does not sound like a recipe for fantasy success.

  Bears | Marquess Wilson a limited participant    Wed Sep 23, 07:42 PM

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson (shoulder) was limited in practice Wednesday, Sept. 23.

Footballguys view: With Alshon Jeffery banged up, the Bears could use Wilson more than some think in Week 3 against the Seahawks. The matchup is horrible for the Bears...and they'll be missing Jay Cutler. Take a pass on all Bears not named Matt Forte.

  Bears | Eddie Royal, Marquess Wilson to see more work    Sun Sep 20, 11:01 AM

Chicago Bears WRs Eddie Royal and Marquess Wilson will be the primary wide receivers for the Bears in Week 2 against the Arizona Cardinals with WR Alshon Jeffery (hamstring) out. RB Matt Forte will also be counted to carry a big workload.

Footballguys view: Neither of them are good plays this week despite the expectation of increased volume. Royal looked limited last week, and Wilson failed to make an impact when he started for Brandon Marshall last year.

  Bears | Three Chicago WRs off injury list    Wed Sep 16, 06:43 PM

Chicago Bears WRs Alshon Jeffery (calf), Eddie Royal (hip) and Marquess Wilson (hamstring) are not listed on the injury report for the team's Week 2 game against the Arizona Cardinals.

Footballguys view: This is a big deal, particularly for Jeffery who we tag as a very nice WR1 play this week. We are not as excited about Eddie Royal (a WR6 at best) and Marquess Wilson (WR9) and wouldn't start Royal or even waste roster space on Wilson save in some of the deeper roster leagues.
