Kendall Wright working out with Robert Griffin III


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(7/9/2014) Titans receiver Kendall Wright returned to Baylor to work out with his former college quarterback, the Redskins' Robert Griffin III, reports the Tennessean. Wright posted a picture of himself with Griffin and another former Baylor wideout, the Cowboys' Terrance Williams.

"Good grind session with my bros … where it all started at BU," wrote Wright, who caught 94 passes for 1,079 yards and two touchdowns last season.

Kendall Wright adds weight, aims to be more 'complete'


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/16/2014) Titans receiver Kendall Wright turned in solid work last season, catching 94 passes for 1,079 yards, but he caught just two touchdowns. 

Now the third-year receiver is aiming to be more "complete" according to his position coach, studying film of the San Diego offense last season (where new Titans head coach Ken Whisenhunt called plays) and especially working on adding strength to break tackles and boost his yards after the catch.

"Some of the short passes that I caught, I maybe let the first person tackle me," Wright said per The Tennessean. "I have to break that tackle and get way more yards than I did. And that is what I am working on -- my explosiveness. It is great to get 1,000 yards. But I want to do a whole lot more after the catch. I need to make more guys miss."

The article cites ProFootballFocus.com's data that Wright's 6.2 yards after catch was seventh-best among receivers who played over 50 percent of his team's snaps. ProFootballFocus.com also says Wright had eight drops over 139 targets last year. 


Kendall Wright closes out solid season


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright added to his solid season in Week 17, in a 16-10 win over the Texans.

Wright was mostly held in check, but the Titans also didn't need much from him. He was targeted seven times in the passing game, hauling in five of those passes for 50 yards, including a long of 34.

Wright broke through the 1,000-yard mark three weeks ago, and will finish the season with 1,079 yards on 94 receptions and two touchdowns. 


Kendall Wright looking to finish season strong


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright is looking to finish his season strong in Week 17, after posting two of his worst performances of the season over the last three weeks. The Titans close the season against the Texans Sunday.

Wright has his first 1,000-yard season, but has scored just twice this season. Fortunately, one of those touchdowns came against this Texans team, as he brought in one of his seven receptions for a touchdown in Week 2.  

The Texans have allowed 18.8 Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers this season, the ninth-lowest mark in the league. Still, Wright has scored in two of his three career games against them, and remains a decent Fantasy play for Week 17.


Kendall Wright not as much of a weapon


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright -- who got a whopping 20 targets in a surprising shootout against Arizona last week, setting season highs with 12 catches and 150 receiving yards -- wasn't as much of a factor Week 16 at Jacksonville.

On a day when the Titans emphasized the running game, giving Chris Johnson and Shonn Greene a combined 41 carries for 181 yards, the short passing game, Wright's specialty, was an afterthought. He still tied for second on the team with seven targets, but had just four catches for 22 yards.

It was the second time in three games that he contributed less than 25 receiving yards. He contributed no less than 69 in any of his previous eight. He'll attempt to bounce back Week 17 against the Texans.


Kendall Wright likely to level off


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/18/2013) After four straight games with between six and nine catches for betwen 77 and 103 yards, Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright has experienced some extreme highs and lows over the last couple weeks. He rebounded from a two-catch, 17-yard performance Week 14 at Denver with a 12-catch, 150-yard performance Week 15 against Arizona, but in doing so, he undermined his best Fantasy attribute: his predictability.

With those two games, though, he's had only four this season in which he didn't catch between five and nine passes for between 54 and 103 yards, so he's still a model of consistency. You can't expect any player to do the exact same thing every week.

Most likely, Wright will get back to doing what he normally does Week 16 at Jacksonville, making a real impact in points-per-reception leagues with his frequent looks in the slot while staying relevant in standard leagues with his modest yardage. The Jaguars rank 19th against the pass, allowing 249.9 yards per game, and have given up the 12th-most Fantasy points to wide receivers, but for Wright, those numbers are probably irrelevant.

Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura rank Wright between 19th and 27th at wide receiver this week, so they're expecting a return to good-but-not-great status as well.


Kendall Wright does a lot with 20 targets


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) With the Titans in desperation comeback mode against Arizona, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick targeted Kendall Wright repeatedly. Wright ended up with a whopping 20 targets, catching 12 balls for 150 yards.

Wright specializes in intermediate routes, as he showed by beating corner Patrick Peterson across the field for a 20-yard gain. Wright's longest reception went 26 yards.

With 85 catches, Wright has more catches in a season than any Titan since 2004. He has 54 catches over his last eight games, or 6.8 per game, and has drawn double-digit targets in four of those. He has two 100-yard games in his last four outings but remains stuck on two touchdown catches.

Wright visits Jacksonville in Week 16.


Kendall Wright: Safe in PPR, risky in standard formats


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/15/2013) Titans receiver Kendall Wright heads into his Week 15 matchup against the Cardinals at home hoping to play well despite a difficult matchup. Fantasy owners should continue to trust Wright in PPR leagues, but he's risky in standard formats.

Wright has been a solid option in PPR leagues for most of the season with five catches or more in 10 games and at least 65 receiving yards in nine outings. But in standard leagues he's only reached double digits in Fantasy points twice, and you should probably consider other options this week unless you're hoping for seven or eight points.

The Cardinals have allowed just five receivers to reach double digits in Fantasy points all season with eight touchdowns allowed, and four of those were scored by Calvin Johnson and Andre Johnson. Wright has only scored twice, and none at home, so his upside could be limited this week in standard formats.

We'd consider him a No. 3 option in PPR leagues and a quality flex. In standard leagues, you're better off keeping him on the bench.

 


Kendall Wright struggles against Broncos


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright had an awful game Week 14 against the Broncos.

Wright caught two passes for 17 yards. He was only targeted three times. Ryan Fitzpatrick only completed 13 passes, so that explains why nearly all of the team's receivers struggled. Wright will look for more Week 15 against the Cardinals. 


Three probable Titans ready to go


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Titans LB Akeem Ayers, P Brett Kern and WR Kendall Wright are active Week 14 against the Broncos. 

Wright practiced in full Thursday and Friday. Ayers and Kern were able to return to full practice Friday. 


Four Titans probable for Week 14 clash


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Wide receiver Kendall Wright (ankle) heads a quartet of Titans listed as probable for Sunday against Pittsburgh. The others are linebacker Akeem Ayers (groin), fullback Quinn Johnson (hamstring) and punter Brett Kern (back).

Kendall Wright double-teamed for first time against Colts


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Success has brought added defensive attention for Titans blossoming wide receiver Kendall Wright. His production and the loss of tight end Delanie Walker to a concussion has resulted in double-teaming Wright had not seen before.

"It was my first time I had a linebacker inside of me and a nickel defender outside of me," Wright told the team website about his experience last Sunday against Indianapolis. "So it was hard, but [fellow Titans wideout Nate Washington] had a great game, so we've just got to make plays when we can."

Wright still caught six passes for 77 yards against the Colts and has 51 receptions for 648 yards in his last eight games. He has only scored one touchdown, however, in that span.


Kendall Wright ready to go Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/5/2013) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright is looking at a strong matchup Week 14 against the Broncos. 

Denver has struggled with opposing wide receivers, allowing them to score 24.50 Fantasy points per game. Through 12 games, the team has allowed 23 passing touchdowns. Of those 23 touchdowns, only 13 have gone to wide receivers. The Broncos have been susceptible against tight ends and running backs in the passing game, which has led to opposing receivers scoring less often than normal. But given Denver's ability to score a lot of points, opposing teams have had to turn to the passing game in order to keep pace.

Wright has emerged as a strong PPR candidate, catching 71 passes, which ranks seventh in the league. Despite his usage, he hasn't been a big threat in the red zone, catching just two touchdowns thus far. He could be a candidate to produce another solid catch, solid yardage day against a poor defense, but Fantasy owners can't depend on him finding the end zone yet.


Kendall Wright totals 77 yards in loss to Colts


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright didn't make the most of his 11 targets Sunday at Indianapolis, but he did catch six passes for 77 yards.

His work was equally distributed. He snagged four for 35 yards in the first half and three for 42 in the second with a long of 35. Wright and his team will travel to Denver to play the Broncos next Sunday.


Kendall Wright alright for battle against Indianapolis


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Titans wideout Kendall Wright is set to play Sunday against the Colts. He had been deemed probable with an ankle injury.

Kendall Wright has right stuff for Week 13


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/30/2013) Titans receiver Kendall Wright had his best game of the season in Week 12 at Oakland, and he will look to build on that success in Week 13 at the Colts.

The last time Wright faced the Colts in Week 11 at home he had nine catches for 80 yards on 12 targets. He then had his best game against the Raiders with six catches for 103 yards and a touchdown.

The 24 Fantasy points in a standard league are easily his best two-game stretch, and he hasn't scored fewer than seven points in the past three weeks. He also has at least six catches in seven games this season.

Wright is a must-start Fantasy option in all PPR leagues, but he's just a No. 3 receiver with upside in standard formats. He only has two touchdowns on the year, and Wright has only been above 80 yards twice.

We hope the performance against the Raiders becomes more of the norm, but until he continues to score on a regular basis his value in standard leagues will be limited.


Titans in good shape for Week 13 game


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/29/2013) The Titans are fairly healthy as they prepare for their game Sunday at Indianapolis. Defensive tackle Sammie Lee Hill (back) and offensive tackle David Stewart (shoulder) are the only starters designated as questionable or worse.

Tight end Craig Stevens (concussion) and wideout Damian Williams (hip) are out. The probables are safety Bernard Pollard (illness), wide receiver Kendall Wright (ankle) and center Brian Schwenke (ankle).


Kendall Wright upgraded to full practice


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2013) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright, who was limited in practice Wednesday with an ankle injury, was upgraded to full practice Thursday. Wright is expected to play Week 13 at Indianapolis.

Kendall Wright cleared to play in Week 13


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) A foot injury that had Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright limited in practice Wednesday will not keep him out Sunday at Indianapolis, according to The Tennesseean. Mike Munchak said he will play against the Colts.

Kendall Wright steps up with crunch-time TD


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Titans receiver Kendall Wright played the role of a hero late in Sunday's win over the Raiders in Week 12.

Wright, who appeared to have injured his right foot or ankle in the second half, stepped up with a 10-yard touchdown reception with 15 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter to give Tennessee the lead and the win. He caught all six of his targeted passes for 109 yards and a touchdown in a 23-19 victory.

Wright cracked the century mark for the first time this season. He has at least 69 receiving yards in his last seven games played. He'll try to keep rolling in Week 13 at Indianapolis.


Kendall Wright continues to be PPR star


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/21/2013) Titans receiver Kendall Wright heads into his Week 12 matchup at Oakland playing at a high level. He is worth starting in all PPR leagues, and he's a quality Fantasy option in standard formats as well.

Wright has at least five catches in eight of 10 games and at least 50 receiving yards in nine outings. In his past two games against Jacksonville and Indianapolis he has combined for 16 catches and 158 yards on 21 targets.

The problem is the lack of touchdowns with only one, but Oakland has allowed 11 touchdowns to opposing receivers with 13 scoring at least nine Fantasy points. It's clear Wright is the go-to receiver for the Titans, and we expect at least 14 points in a PPR league and no less than eight in a standard format.

He's worth starting as a No. 2 receiver in this matchup. 


Kendall Wright catches nine passes in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright continued to serve as a dependable possession receiver for Ryan Fitzpatrick in Week 11, in a 30-27 loss to the Colts.

Wright was targeted a team-high 12 times, and hauled in nine of those passes. Unfortunately, he struggled to break any big plays in the game, and was held to just 80 yards on those nine receptions.

Wright has 59 catches through 10 games, but remains a guy who moves the sticks rather than a big-play option. His 660 yards come on just 11.2 yards per reception, and he has scored only one time heading into Week 12 against the Raiders. 


Kendall Wright has nice Week 11 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/13/2013) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright is currently riding a five-game streak with 65 or more receiving yards. His 580 yards on the season have him on pace to shatter his previous high (626), set last season.  

The problem with Wright, though, is that he has just one touchdown this season, and hasn't gone over 98 receiving yards in a game. He's been remarkably consistent -- of his nine games, he's been outside the 50-to-100 yard range just once -- but unexciting. 

Week 11 brings a nice matchup against the Colts, who have allowed the seventh-most Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers this season. In each of the last three weeks, at least one wide receiver has gone for 138 or more yards against the Colts, and four have scored touchdowns -- with three wideouts scoring multiple touchdowns. 

Wright has been reliable for his owners so far this season, but Week 11 may be the game in which he finally breaks out. he can be started in most leagues.


Kendall Wright solid again in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright was productive in Week 10 against the Jaguars, but it came in a losing effort as Tennessee fell, 29-27.

Wright was targeted nine times and brought in seven of those passes, matching his second-best total of the season. He went for 79 yards in the game, with a long reception of 26 yards.

Wright remains productive, with 50 catches for 580 yards through nine games. He will try to keep his solid play up in Week 11, when the Titans face the Colts Thursday. 


Reliable Kendall Wright still searching for breakout


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2013) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright tends to be pretty quiet through the first few downs of the team's offensive sets, but has become a weapon on third down for quarterback Jake Locker.

According to The Tennessean, Wright has caught 18 of Locker's 39 third-down completions this season, good for second in the league. While Wright's emergence as a possession receiver has been a pleasant surprise for the Titans, they still know he can break more big plays down the road.

"Kendall is a guy that when we drafted him, we thought he had explosive ability," Locker said. "He's shown that for us and done that for us. We're excited we get those kinds of plays out of him."

Wright has 43 catches for 502 yards, but has scored just one touchdown on the season. He will look to change that and start showing off his big-play ability in Week 10, when the Titans face the Jaguars.

Jacksonville has allowed 10 touchdowns through eight games, thought just two have come in the last three. The Jaguars rank just 15th in the league in Fantasy points allowed to opposing wide receivers, so Fantasy should probably not expect a big breakout from Wright in Week 10.
