Vikings wide receivers limited Week 17


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Vikings TE Chase Ford, WR Jarius Wright, WR Jerome Simpson and TE Rhett Ellison were limited Week 17.

Ford led the group, with five receptions for 43 yards. Wright had 31 yards on two catches. Simpson gained 29 yards on three receptions. Ellison had one catch for 13 yards.


Jarius Wright makes one catch count


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright, who broke through with four catches for 95 yards last week against Philadelphia, wasn't as consistently involved in the passing game Week 16 at Cincinnati, but he still made a big contribution. His one catch was the Vikings' only touchdown through the air -- a 36-yard bomb in the first quarter.

Wright might have been more involved if the Vikings passing game wasn't completely stiffled, with quarterback Matt Cassel completing just 13 of 27 passes for 114 yards, but then again, he had only two targets on the day. Cordarrelle Patterson had seven, Greg Jennings had six, and Jerome Simpson had five.

For most of this season, Wright has played just a peripheral role in the passing game, and that will likely be the case again Week 17 against the Lions.


Jarius Wright has big game Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright had a big game Week 15 against the Eagles.

Wright caught just four passes, but made them count, gaining 95 yards. Wright had two big plays, catching a 26 yard pass in the first quarter. In the third quarter, he caught a 42 yard pass. Wright will take on the Bengals Week 16.


Vikings get minor contributions from four players Week 13


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Vikings running back Toby Gerhart, wide receiver Jarius Wright, fullback Jerome Felton and tight end Chase Ford all made it onto the stat sheet Week 13 vs. Chicago.

Gerhart had two rushes for 8 yards and one catch for 4 yards.

Wright had three catches for 53 yards. His longest reception went 24 yards.

Felton had just one catch for 5 yards, while Ford added one catch for 2 yards.

The Vikings are back in action Week 14 at Baltimore.


Jarius Wright disappears from offense Week 12


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright disappeared from the offense Week 12 at Green Bay with the return of Greg Jennings from an Achilles injury. Wright, who scored twice in Jennings' absence Week 11, totaled no catches and was targeted once Sunday.

The Vikings are back in action Week 13 vs. Chicago.


Jarius Wright looking at another strong outing?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2013) Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright is coming off a standout performance Week 11 at Seattle in place of the injured Greg Jennings (Achilles), totaling a career-high two touchdowns on just three catches. Now, Wright will be pressed to follow up his career day with another strong performance Week 12 at Green Bay. 

Wright will be facing a Packers defense yielding 171 receiving yards and 24.8 Fantasy points per week to wide receivers, which is the eighth-highest average. Wide receivers have totaled 13 touchdowns in 10 games against the Vikings.

Wright didn't stat in a Week 8 loss to Green Bay, but he had one of his best games last season against the Packers, totaling three catches for 90 yards and one touchdown. Wright's Fantasy value increases if Jennings is out again, but it declines if Jennings plays.

Even if Jennings is out, consider Wright just a desperation Fantasy start. He doesn't have a particularly strong track record and the Vikings aren't exactly a top offense.


Jarius Wright shines in surprise start


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright had only two touchdown receptions last year. Wright, who got the start over Greg Jennings, found the end zone twice during Sunday’s loss against the Seahawks in Week 11.

Wright was targeted four times and finished with three catches for 69 yards and two touchdowns in a 41-20 defeat. He has 16 grabs for 219 yards and two touchdowns on the year.

Wright will look to keep rolling in Week 12 at Green Bay.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com

Jarius Wright opening eyes at Vikings camp


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2013) Second-year wideout Jarius Wright is drawing raves from normally reserved offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave, reports ESPN.com, which called Wright the most impressive receiver in Vikings camp.

"He's done a fantastic job outside the numbers as well as in the slot," Musgrave said. "He looks quick, his weight is exactly where it needs to be and the bottom line with Jarius is he knows what to do all of the time. He can help the other guys in that room with all of the new faces in the receiving room, he helps them in the meeting room, during the drills and also of course when they break the huddle."

In the seven games Percy Harvin missed last season, Wright was targeted 35 times, most among Minnesota wideouts.


Jarius Wright having good camp


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/1/2013) Vikings receiver Jarius Wright is having a good training camp, reports the team's official website.

The report said Wright came on strong at the end of last season, playing well for the Vikings when Percy Harvin went down. Now, Wright is continuing that in training camp and looks poised to play that well – or even better – for the entire 2013 season.

Wright is fast enough and physical enough to play on the outside if needed. The Vikings can also get Wright the ball quickly while in space, similar to what they did with Harvin many times.

He will compete to be the No. 3 receiver behind Greg Jennings and Jerome Simpson.
