With each passing day, Marquess Wilson seemingly tightens his grasp on the Bears’ No. 3 receiver position behind starters Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.
The second-year pro has made plays throughout training camp, most recently leaping to catch passes down the left sideline over Kelvin Hayden Friday and Charles Tillman Saturday.
“Right now [Wilson] is on track to be the third [receiver],” said coach Marc Trestman. “But we’re still working with the other guys to make sure that we get it right, and everybody’s getting reps to have the opportunity to be that guy.”
It will be hard for Wilson to make a fantasy impact with Marshall and Jeffery also at the position, as well as RB Matt Forte and TE Martellus Bennett also in the mix for catches.
