Bears | Marquess Wilson, Josh Morgan to step up

Fri, 05 Dec 2014 12:53:41 -0800

Chicago Bears WR Marquess Wilson will likely be used to replace WR Brandon Marshall (ribs, lung) on the outside, while WR Josh Morgan will likely move into the slot-receiving role.

Fantasy Tip: Both Wilson and Morgan will be cheap at FantasyScore. Wilson should be the more valuable player for fantasy purposes, but he's nothing more than a flier in very deep leagues and a desperation play at FantasyScore in Week 15 and beyond.

Mon, 18 Aug 2014 15:47:08 -0700

Chicago Bears WR Josh Morgan will work as the No. 3 wide receiver during practice this week and could also fill that role during the third preseason game, according to head coach Marc Trestman.

Redskins | Joshua Morgan could return to starting lineup

Tue, 19 Nov 2013 11:10:38 -0800

Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan said WR Joshua Morgan, who was inactive in favor of WR Nick X. Williams as a punt returner in Week 11, could return to the starting lineup if WR Leonard Hankerson (knee) needs surgery to fix a torn lateral collateral ligament in his knee. "I've got a lot of belief in Josh Morgan," Shanahan said. "I have a lot of confidence in Josh that he'll come back strong and help us this week as a receiver. But I explained to him what he needs to do in both special teams and wide receiver to get to a level that I think he can get to. I think he has the ability to be a Pro Bowl player and I want to get that out of him." Williams muffed a punt and failed to field another against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy Tip: Morgan would be, at best, a flex player in deeper leagues if Hankerson is out for extended time.

Wed, 14 Aug 2013 10:35:24 -0700

Washington Redskins WRs Pierre Garcon, Joshua Morgan, Santana Moss, Leonard Hankerson and Aldrick Robinson have appeared to lock up spots on the final roster.
