Marquess Wilson is pretty much locked in as Bears' No. 3 WR

You and every defensive coordinator in the NFL are well aware of Brandon Marshall @BMarshall and Alshon Jeffery @AJJeffery1. Perhaps you're less familiar with Marquess Wilson, a tall, strong, explosive, 21-year-old receiver who the Bears want as their No. 3 wideout to start this season. According to Michael C. Wright of ESPN Chicago, it sounds like that is going to happen barring something unforeseen
Wright wrote today that the No. 3 job is Wilson's to lose, and he won't lose it unless he "falters significantly in camp and in the preseason ...."

Fantasy Analysis:

You might remember Marshall praising Wilson for his work during OTAs back in April. His re-draft value is only as a late-round stash. He should have his moments since Bears should be throwing it a lot this season -- and defenses will be doing whatever they can to not let Marshall and Jeffery beat them -- but Chicago already has four or five pairs of hands in front of Wilson in the pecking order for targets. Wilson is a future stock, someone dynasty leaguers should be eager to get their hands on. Although Marshall just signed a three-year extension through 2017, he is entering his age-30 season. Wilson could be his heir apparent and really take off in a couple of years.
