Vikings' Jarius Wright catches game-winning touchdown


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) What was just an ordinary day for Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright turned into a clutch performance when Wright caught an 87-yard touchdown pass from Teddy Bridgewater to beat the Jets 30-24 in overtime.

Wright finished with four receptions for 123 yards on five targets. It was just the second time Wright has surpassed more than 100 receiving yards this season.

The Vikings travel to Detroit Week 15.


Vikings unveil lengthy injury report for Week 13


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) Vikings tight end Chase Ford (hamstring, foot) and defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (knee) were all listed as questionable for Sunday's game against Carolina, according to the team's final injury report released Friday. Running back Jerick McKinnon (low back) was deemed doubtful, but told reporters following practice he will not play Week 13.

Meanwhile, the following players were labeled as probable: Safety Harrison Smith (shoulder, ankle), wide receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (knee), running back Matt Asiata (concussion), tackle Matt Kalil (knee), linebacker Anthony Barr (knee), tight end Kyle Rudolph (abdomen, groin), wide receiver Jarius Wright (hamstring), wide receiver Greg Jennings (rib) and tackle Michael Harris (ankle).


Greg Jennings, Jerick McKinnon ready to go for Vikings


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) The Vikings will have both Greg Jennings and Jerick McKinnon Week 12 against the Packers.

Jennings came into the contest listed as questionable with a rib injury. He'll give it a go against his former team. McKinnon was listed as probable with a back injury. 

The team will also have Anthony Barr, Scott Crichton, Everson Griffen, Michael Harris, Captain Munnerlyn, Xavier Rhodes and Kyle Rudolph. All seven came into the game listed as probable, and were always expected to play.

Both Matt Kalil and Jarius Wright will also attempt to play. They were both listed as questionable. Kalil has a knee injury, while Wright is dealing with a hamstring issue. 


Vikings list four questionable on Friday injury report


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/21/2014) A lengthy Vikings injury report posted Friday for the Week 12 game against visiting Green Bay features four questionable players. They are wide receivers Jarius Wright (hamstring) and Greg Jennings (rib), defensive tackle Sharrif Floyd (knee) and offensive tackle Matt Kalil (knee). Running back Matt Asiata (concussion) has already been ruled out.

Vikings WRs Wright, Jennings likely out Wednesday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/19/2014) Vikings wide receivers Jarius Wright (hamstring) and Greg Jennings (hip) are near-certainties to sit out practice Wednesday.

Both missed time Sunday against Chicago with their ailments. Only Jennings caught a pass in the game.


Vikings WR Jarius Wright questionable to return Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Vikings wideout Jarius Wright is questionable to return Week 11 against the Bears.

Wright is dealing with a hamstring injury. He did not record a catch before leaving the contest, though he was targeted once. Wright will likely be re-evaluated at halftime. 


Vikings get offensive contributions in OT win


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The Vikings got several offensive contributions in their 19-13 overtime win at Tampa Bay. Among them, running back Matt Asiata caught four of five targets for 26 yards and rushed four times for 1 yard.

Wideout Charles Johnson caught two passes for 18 yards, and receiver Jarius Wright made two catches for 13 yards. They'll all face the Redskins in Week 9.


Jarius Wright catches four passes in Week 7 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright caught all four of his targets for 60 yards in his team's 17-16 loss to the Bills in Week 7.

Wright was able to convert a third-and-18 in the fourth quarter by hauling in a 28-yard reception that was upheld upon review, and he extended the drive with another third-down conversion to put the team in a first-and-goal scenario. The Vikings took a six-point lead later in the drive on a field goal, and the inability to reach the end zone on the drive came back to haunt them when the Bills took a lead with one second left on the clock. Wright has 22 receptions for 273 yards going into Sunday's Week 8 matchup with the Buccaneeers.


Vikings pass catchers fail to do much Week 6


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) The Vikings pass catchers failed to produce much Week 6.

Tight end Chase Ford finished second in receiving after catching four passes for 37 yards. Greg Jennings managed to come up with three catches for 33 yards. Charles Johnson also got into the act, catching two passes for 22 yards. Jarius Wright, who has been strong lately, caught four balls, but gained just 17 yards. He did have a rushing attempt, and gained 21 yards. Rhett Ellison caught one pass for 4 yards. 

The group will take on the Bills Week 7.


Vikings WR Jarius Wright leads team in targets Week 5


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/3/2014) Vikings wideout Jarius Wright led the way in targets Week 5 against the Packers.

The results weren't there despite eight targets. Wright hauled in three passes for just 27 yards during the contest. Wright was coming off a huge breakout game, in which he had eight receptions for 132 yards. While the overall numbers were down Week 5, Wright did at least receive attention from his quarterback.

Wright will look for more Week 6 against the Lions. 


Steer clear of Vikings WR's Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) The Vikings' receiving corps has had to deal with two different quarterbacks over the last two weeks, and they may see a third if Teddy Bridgewater's ankle injury forces him to sit out Thursday's game against the Packers in Week 5.

Though Bridgewater threw the ball well in his first start, it was little-used third receiver Jarius Wright who saw the bulk of the bump. Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson, the team's more well established duo, combined for just five receptions. Even if Bridgewater does play Thursday, we just don't have enough information on how he likes to use his receivers to know whether Sunday's game is the start of a pattern or not.

We really need to see more from Bridgewater before we can determine how he and the coaching staff wants to use his receivers. With nothing in the way of must-start players among this trio, you probably want to avoid using them in Week 5. 


Chemistry in Jarius Wright's favor


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/28/2014) Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright's 132-yard performance Week 4 against Atlanta may seem like it came out of nowhere, but according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, it's no coincidence it came during rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's first NFL start. The two worked together on the second team this preseason and developed a chemistry.

"Teddy knew where to put the ball to me on a couple throws," Wright said. "I kind of knew where to expect the ball. Our reps paid off. A lot of trust."

Indeed, it wasn't just a big play or two that set Wright apart (though he had his share of those, including a 52-yard catch-and-run in the first quarter). Wright also led the Vikings in targets (10) and receptions (eight).

There may be something to this chemistry thing. Wright looked quick and deserving of a bigger role, especially since Cordarrelle Patterson hasn't lived up to the billing. Between him and Greg Jennings, the Vikings may have more mouths than they can realistically feed, but certainly in deeper leagues, Wright deserves a look off the waiver wire.


Jarius Wright breaks out Week 4


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright turned in a breakout performance Week 4 against the Falcons.

Wright caught eight passes for 132 yards during the game. He was targeted a team-high 10 times. Wright made his biggest play early, catching a 52 yard pass from Teddy Bridgewater on the team's third play from scrimmage. He would show off his big play ability a few more times, catching at least three passes over 15 yards. 

Wright will look for more Week 5 against the Packers.


Jarius Wright limited to one grab Saturday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/24/2014) Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright was limited to only one catch Saturday night against Kansas City in preseason action. Wright was targeted once and finished with 14 receiving yards.

Jarius Wright suffers apparent ankle injury Monday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright left practice early Monday due to an apparent left ankle injury, the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Vikes not expected to draft wideout


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/30/2014) The Vikings have "four solid options" at receiver and have bigger draft needs than wideout, reports the Minneapolis StarTribune. The paper expects the team to pass on receivers in the draft, then add one from the deep pool of undrafted free agents.

Greg Jennings, Cordarrelle Patterson, Jerome Simpson and Jarius Wright project as the team's top four wideouts.


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 beat Richard Sherman for a 38-yard touchdown pass from Christian Ponder in the second quarter. He then caught a 21-yard pass from Matt Cassel late in the fourth quarter for his second of the day.

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.

Jarius Wright to start over Greg Jennings


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/17/2013) Vikings wide receiver Greg Jennings was a surprise inactive for Sunday's Week 11 contest in Seattle. Jennings was listed as probable earlier in the week due to an Achilles injury.

Jarius Wright will start in the place of Jennings.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(11/8/2013) Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright caught two passes during the Week 10 win over Washington Thursday night.
