|Timothy Wright a Fantasy option to avoid Week 15 |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(10:45 am ET) Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright put an end to his scoring slump Week 14 vs. Buffalo, recording a touchdown for the first time in five games and third time this season. Will Wright be able to score in consecutive games Week 15 vs. San Francisco?
It could be viewed as encouraging that two of Wright's three touchdowns have come at home. The disappointing stat, however, is tight ends average just 5.2 Fantasy points per week against San Francisco, which is the lowest average. Tight ends have totaled just five touchdowns and average 39.1 receiving yards per game against San Francisco.
Wright was a decent Fantasy option earlier in the season when quarterback Mike Glennon leaned on him as a safety net as he was acclimating to the starting quarterback role. But Wright hasn't been a very reliable option lately. He's totaled just one Fantasy point in three of his last five games and hasn't surpassed 10 Fantasy points in that five-game span.
Fantasy owners should view Wright as more of a desperation Fantasy start Week 15. With his recent production and the tough matchup, he's not an ideal candidate to start this week.

(12/8/13) Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright brought in just two passes in Week 14 against the Bills, but made one of them count as he scored his third touchdown of the season in a 27-6 win.
Wright picked up just 21 yards on his two catches, and it was the shorter of his two receptions that made his day. Wright scored from 5 yards out in the second quarter, giving him his third career touchdown.
Wright's numbers are decent for a rookie tight end, as he heads into Week 15 against the 49ers with 38 catches for 403 yards on the season.
|Timothy Wright no longer the right Fantasy option |
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(12/4/13) Lately, Fantasy owners haven't been able to count on Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright, which is disappointing since the Fantasy playoffs are upon us. As the Bucs prepare to face Buffalo Week 14, Fantasy owners are faced with the decision to start or sit Wright?
Tight ends average just 6.0 Fantasy points per week against the Bills, which is tied for the sixth-lowest average. However, a closer look at the numbers recently indicate tight ends have had moderate success against Buffalo. Tight ends have totaled five touchdowns in the last six games after totaling just one in the first six against Buffalo. Tight ends are also averaging 8.5 Fantasy points in the last six games against Buffalo.
Wright was used as more of a safety blanket for rookie quarterback Mike Glennon when he first took over the starting quarterback job from Josh Freeman in Week 4. Also, the Bucs were playing from behind in many of the games Wright had good numbers, so Glennon had to pass a lot. Now that the Bucs have started to win and Glennon has settled in at quarterback, he no longer has to lean on Wright. Unfortunately, it's impacted his numbers, as Wright has been held to two or fewer catches and less than 20 yards in three of his last four games.
While tight ends have started to have success against Buffalo, there are still not many standout performances, so it's not like you have to start Wright Week 14. He's really more of a No. 2 Fantasy tight end. Better waiver-wire options are Heath Miller (vs. MIA), Jared Cook (@ARI) and Ladarius Green (vs. NYG).
|Timothy Wright comes back down to earth |

(12/1/13) Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright, who rebounded from a couple down performances with a season-high eight catches for 75 yards last week at Detroit, made it look like an aberration Week 13 at Carolina. He caught two passes for 17 yards, giving him less than 20 yards in three of his last four games.
Of course, on a day when quarterback Mike Glennon attempted only 21 passes, Wright's three targets were actually tied for third-most on the team. Only wide receivers Vincent Jackson and Tiquan Underwood had more. Still, in seven games since his breakthrough seven-catch, 91-yard performance in Week 6, he's averaging just 3.3 catches for 35.0 yards.
Wright will attempt to rebound yet again Week 14 against the Bills.
|Timothy Wright looking to score again on Panthers |
|by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer|
(11/27/13) Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright snapped out of his recent malaise in Week 12, catching a season-high eight passes for 75 yards. And he did so against a Lions team that -- for all their failings against wide receivers -- have been pretty solid in defending tight ends this season.
The Panthers -- Wright's Week 13 opponent -- have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends in the last five weeks. And one of those belonged to Wright, who caught five passes for 48 yards and a touchdown in Week 8. The passing game has changed for the Bucs since that game, however. Most notably, Mike Glennon threw 51 passes in that game; he hasn't thrown more than 23 since.
Still, Wright has some momentum from Week 12, and has been successful against the Panthers before. While there's some downside here (his two previous games, for example), there's enough good to consider Wright a startable asset in deeper formats, or in leagues where an owner has been streaming tight ends on a weekly basis.
