Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 4: Marquess Wilson
The Bears receiver had a solid game in his first start. Is he worth the start in your fantasy finals?
Chicago Bears wide receiver Marquess Wilson had a solid day in his first career start last week. Filling in for the injured Brandon Marshall, Wilson drew the start opposite Alshon Jeffery and finished the day with three catches for 16 yards and his first career touchdown. There isn’t much room for Wilson since he was targeted six times but it was encouraging to see him heavily involved in the game plan. Quarterback Jay Cutler also missed him on a deep ball that likely would have been another score. Wilson will have to adjust to a new quarterback in Jimmy Clausen but he should see plenty of looks.
Fantasy Impact: Things get much tougher for Wilson when the Bears take on the Detroit Lions. Their secondary gives up the seventh-fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. Wilson should remained heavily involved in the offense. However, with Clausen starting his first game since 2010 and the tough matchup, Wilson is a risky WR4 play.
