Kendall Wright, Nate Washington held in check Week 12


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Titans wideouts Kendall Wright and Nate Washington were held in check during Sunday's defeat to the Eagles in Week 12.

Wright was held without a grab for the first three quarters. He came down with a 28-yard reception with 9:35 renaming in the game for his only catch of the day. He was targeted six times. Washington caught four of the six passes thrown his way for 63 yards.


Titans WR Kendall Wright seeking more opportunities on offense


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/22/2014) Titans receiver Kendall Wright admitted he's frustrated and is seeking more opportunities on offense, but told the Tennessean "there is nothing I can do about it, really."

"All I can do is go to work and do what the coaches ask me," Wright said. "It's not like I am going to go Dez Bryant and throw a couple of tantrums and ask for the ball. If I don't get it, I don't get it. Yeah, that is part of the frustration, but I'll get over it.

"… Any receiver would like more opportunities. But it is not my job to say anything to the coaches. If I could get more opportunities, I definitely would take them. I just want to do whatever I can to help. I don't know what I am doing right now, I don't know if it is much to be honest with you."

Wright caught four passes for a season-high 70 yards in a Week 11 loss to Pittsburgh on Monday night. A year after breaching the 1,000-yard plateau, Wright is on pace to finish the season with under 800 receiving yards. He has 43 grabs for 473 yards and four touchdowns through 10 games.


Kendall Wright goes for a season-high 70 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2014) Titans receiver Kendall Wright caught four passes for a season-high 70 yards in Monday night's loss to the Steelers. Wright drew a game-high eight targets and had a long gainer of 23 yards.

He'll visit the Eagles in Week 12.


Kendall Wright leads Titans in receiving yards Week 10


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright had a team-high 53 receiving yards on four catches during a 21-7 loss Week 10 at Baltimore. He was targeted a team-high seven times and his longest catch went for 20 yards.

Wright has totaled at least 50 receiving yards in three straight games. However, he hasn't had more than 68 receiving yards this season.

The Titans are back in action Week 11 vs. Pittsburgh.


How did Zach Mettenberger use his receivers?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The Titans threw the ball surprisingly often in Week 8, as rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger put the ball in the air 41 times in his NFL debut against the Texans. That meant there were a lot of scoring opportunities to go around for Titans receivers.

Nate Washington and Kendall Wright led the way in the game, with 68 and 53 yards respectively, though neither player was near the team lead in targets in the game. It was actually Justin Hunter who led the team in that category, and despite hauling in just four passes for 31 yards, he also hauled in one of Mettenberger's scores.

This receiving trio has struggled with consistency given the team's quarterback issues, so it will be interesting to see how Mettenberger's ascension to the starting role impacts them. Given Sunday's usage, Hunter looks like he might be the player with the most upside out of the three, though we need to see more before considering any dependable Fantasy options. 


Kendall Wright barely goes over 50 yards in Mettenberger's first start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright finished with 53 yards on three catches in rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger's first career start during a 30-16 loss Week 8 vs. Houston. Wright was targeted five times, as Mettenberger finished with 299 passing yards and two touchdowns.

Wright got most of his yards on a 48-yard reception in the second half. He still doesn't have a 100-yard game in eight outings this season. The Titans are on a bye Week 9 before returning to action Week 10 at Baltimore.


New quarterback for Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) The good news for Titans wide receivers Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter in Week 8 is that they're facing the Texans, who rank 26th against the pass, allowing 268.7 yards per game, and have given up the fifth-most Fantasy points per game to wide receivers. The bad news for Wright and Hunter is that they'll be working with a rookie quarterback who'll be making his first NFL start.

Zach Mettenberger was only a sixth-round pick, but he's getting the start even though Jake Locker is set to return from a two-week absence for a thumb injury. Having Locker under center would have been a best-case scenario for Wright and Hunter. As it is, you shouldn't expect them to contribute much more than they did with Charlie Whitehurst at quarterback for most of the last three games.

Wright is probably the safer bet of the two because he's more of an underneath route runner. What he lacks in yardage he makes up for in catches, and unlike some players with a similar role, the Titans don't shy away from him in the red zone. Hunter, as more of a downfield threat, may have a harder time connecting with Mettenberger, so you'll want to sit him for now.


Titans WR Kendall Wright ties career high with fourth TD


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/19/2014) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright bounced back from a one-catch performance Week 6 to have one of his better games this season during a 19-17 loss Week 7 at Washington. Wright totaled a team-high 68 receiving yards and one touchdown on six catches.

Wright, who was targeted nine times, gave Tennessee a 10-6 lead with a 14-yard touchdown catch with 1:04 left in the second quarter. It was his fourth touchdown, which tied a career high. Wright has three touchdowns in his last three games.

The 68 yards were also a season high. Wright has now managed a season-high six catches three times. The Titans are back in action Week 8 vs. Houston.


Nate Washington, Kendall Wright barely targeted Week 6


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Titans wideouts Nate Washington and Kendall Wright were afterthoughts in the team's Week 6 win over Jacksonville. Washington caught both his targets for 23 yards, while Wright secured his only target for 6 yards.

It was a huge disappointment for Wright, who caught 11 passes against the Jaguars last year and was coming off a two-touchdown game Week 5. Washington and Wright visit the Redskins in Week 7.


Titans receivers hoping for an encore


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/8/2014) Before last week's breakout performance, relying on anyone in the Titans' receiving corps was likely to end in heartbreak. However, Justin Hunter and Kendall Wright broke out in Week 5, and will look to keep the good times coming in Week 6 against the Jaguars.

Hunter and Wright entered Week 5 with just one combined double-digit Fantasy game between them, but both topped that level against the Browns. And though they may seem like flashes in the pan, they have a chance to keep up their production with the Jaguars on the schedule in Week 6. The Jaguars have allowed 26.0 Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers, including seven individual games of at least 8 Fantasy points in five contests.

Understand, neither Hunter nor Wright should be considered a slam dunk for this week's game, even with a solid matchup. The Titan's passing game has been erratic, and there are questions about who will start at quarterback, given Jake Locker's injury. However, if you need an injury or bye week fill-in, however, taking a chance on one of these guys may prove fruitful. 


What do two TDs mean for Kendall Wright?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/5/2014) In terms of yardage -- or at least receiving yardage -- Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright didn't have an exceptional performance Week 5 vs. Cleveland, picking up 47 yards on six catches. It was the fourth time in five games he had between 44 and 55 receiving yards.

So then, do the two touchdowns he scored greatly change his Fantasy value? Maybe he was a little behind pace with only one through his first four games, but even if that's the case, outside of points-per-reception leagues, you pretty much need a touchdown from Wright to justify starting him with that kind of yardage.

And the touchdowns may be even harder to come by if starting quarterback Jake Locker ends up missing time with an injured thumb. Charlie Whitehurst doesn't bring as much to the table.

As for Wright's 43 rushing yards in Week 5, it's pretty safe to say those don't change his Fantasy value either. He didn't have a rushing attempt in his first four games.


Titans WR Kendall Wright scores twice in defeat to Cleveland


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Titans wideout Kendall Wright set himself up to be the offensive hero Sunday against Cleveland until his team blew a 25-point lead.

Wright snagged his first touchdown pass of the season, an 11-yarder with five minutes left in the first quarter, then got a couple steps on Browns cornerback Joe Haden for another 11-yard score in the back of the end zone late in the second quarter. He finished the half with four catches for 24 yards.

He finished with a team-high six receptions for 47 yards and added a 38-yard run. Wright hopes his production aids in a victory next Sunday against Jacksonville.


Which receivers are worth adding this week?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/30/2014) Chargers wide receiver Eddie Royal has been targeted at least six times in every game so far this season, and his big performance in recent weeks is enough to convince Jamey Eisenberg to put him at the top of his waiver-wire priority list ahead of week five.

Additionally, Jamey tabs Brian Quick of the Rams, Rueben Randle of the Giants, Malcom Floyd of the Chargers and Andrew Hawkins of the Browns rounds out the top five at wide receiver, with Odell Beckham of the Giants, Davante Adams of the Packers and Brandon LaFell of the Patriots possible sleepers.

If you need to clear a spot on your roster for any moves this week, consider parting ways with Kendall Wright, Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and Riley Cooper


FFT Blog: Who left points on the board in Week 4?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2014) Over at the Fantasy Football Today blog, I noted a handful of players who left Fantasy points on the field in Week 4. Whether it was due to a play called off due to penalties or just an overthrow by a quarterback, a handful of guys could have helped you more than they did in this weekend.

The list is headlined by Steelers receiver Antonio Brown, who could have had two more touchdowns -- in addition to the two he already scored -- Sunday, if Ben Roethlisberger hit him in stride. Elsewhere, Jaguars receiver Allen Hurns' inability to hang on to the ball cost him another score, the second time that has happened in four games.

Check out the blog post for video of those two plus Kendall Wright of the Titans, Kelvin Benjamin of the Panthers, Davante Adams of the Packers and the Colts' T.Y. Hilton's close brushes with the end zone. 


Kendall Wright loses fumble during Week 4 loss


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright finished with five catches for 55 yards during a 41-17 loss Week 4 at Indianapolis. He was targeted a team-high eight times and his longest catch went 18 yards.

Though, Sunday's loss for Wright was marred by a turnover and missed opportunities. Wright coughed up a fumble on the team's opening drive and missed a chance for an 18-yard touchdown in the second quarter, as Charlie Whitehurst overthrew a wide-open Wright at the goal line.

"It was a drive killer, I’ll take full blame for that," Wright said of his fumble, per ESPN. "I was already tripping, so I was just diving forward. Last time I checked, the ground can’t cause a fumble. Man, I don’t have any excuse. Just hold onto the ball and go make the next play."

The Titans are back in action Week 5 vs. Cleveland.


Titans receivers not worth your time until QB play improves


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Fantasy owners of any of the Titans' wide receivers have to be hoping Jake Locker returns soon, after the poor showing Charlie Whitehurst and Zach Mettenberger put up in Week 4.

Against the Colts, only Kendall Wright put together anything close to his usual numbers. And, frankly five catches for 55 yards isn't much to write home about. Justin Hunter and Nate Washington were limited to just one catch apiece, numbers that are sure to cause their Fantasy ownership numbers to continue to dwindle.

At this point, Delanie Walker is the only member of the Titans' receiving corps you want to be relying on. It will be hard to start Kendall Wright with Whitehurst throwing to him, and Hunter and Washington might not be worth owning at this point. 


Uncertainty makes Titans WR a bad play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker was able to practice on a limited basis Friday, a sign of improvement from a wrist injury that had kept him out the previous two days. However, his availability is still in question for Week 4 against the Colts, and his potential absence casts a shadow of doubt over each one of his receiving options.

The Titans have thrown the ball plenty to their trio of wide receivers (15-plus targets for each through three games), but Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter and Nate Washington have all failed to really make an impact. And that was with Locker under center. For all of his faults, Locker has to be considered a better option that Charlie Whitehurst, who has not started a game since 2011 and has a career 5.2 yards-per-attempt mark under his belt.

You've likely been disappointed with the play of your Titans' receivers so far, assuming you haven't cut them yet. Given the uncertainty surrounding their quarterback spot, it is hard to see things getting much better in Week 4.

 


Kendall Wright gains 44 yards on five receptions vs. Bengals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright caught only five of his 10 targets for 44 yards in his team's 33-7 loss to the Bengals Sunday.

Wright has yet to reach 50 receiving yards in any of his team's first three games, but he was finally heavily targeted after averaging only six targets in his first two starts. A strong Bengals defense and a struggling Jake Locker did the receiver no favors. Wright could have an easier time in Week 4 when the Bengals head to Indianapolis.


Kendall Wright not a strong Week 3 play


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/18/2014) The Bengals have already given up two big games to receivers through two weeks with Steve Smith and Julio Jones scoring at least 14 Fantasy points in a standard league.

Kendall Wright or Justin Hunter could follow suit and we'd still lean on Wright in a PPR league. But Wright, despite his touchdown in Week 1 at Kansas City, is always a risky option to count on scoring since he has six career touchdowns prior to this year.

The Bengals should be able to pressure Locker into making mistakes. The Cowboys did a good job negating Wright with only three catches for 31 yards on five targets and he could be a low-end Fantasy option again this week.

For a complete list of Week 3 options, read my latest Start 'Em and Sit 'Em.


Kendall Wright finishes with less than 40 yards Week 2


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/14/2014) The Cowboys did a good job of limiting Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright from making big plays during a 26-10 win at Tennesssee Week 2.

Wright, who was targeted five times, finished with just 31 receiving yards on three catches. He had all of one catch for 8 yards by halftime.

The Titans are back in action Week 3 at Cincinnati.


Kendall Wright notches seventh career TD


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright hauled in his seventh career receiving touchdown and scored in a season opener for the first time in his career during a 26-10 win Week 1 at Kansas City.

Wright finished with a team-high six catches for 46 yards. He was targeted seven times and his longest catch went 14 yards.

Wright's touchdown came on a 6-yard reception with 10:26 left in the third quarter. It put Tennessee ahead 17-6. It was also his first touchdown in six games.

The Titans are back in action Week 2 vs. Dallas.


Season openers haven't been great for Kendall Wright


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/3/2014) Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright has not had a lot of success in season openers. He totaled five catches for 37 yards and no touchdowns in his regular season NFL debut in 2012 against the Patriots, and then totaled just two catches for 11 yards and no touchdowns in the 2013 season opener at Pittsburgh.

Wright, who led the Titans in receptions (94) and receiving yards (1,079) last season, will look to get off to a better start in 2014 as Tennessee opens the season Sunday at Kansas City. Wright did have both of his receiving touchdowns on the road last season, but he totaled just 35 catches for 422 yards in eight road games. He also had eight catches for 74 yards in a home game against Kansas City last year.

Wide receivers had pretty good success against Kansas City last year. Wide receivers averaged 24.2 Fantasy points per week against the Chiefs, which included a playoff game against the Colts. Wide receivers averaged 190.2 receiving yards and totaled 16 receiving touchdowns.

Wright will once again be a featured player on offense for Tennessee and can be considered a No. 3 Fantasy wide receiver or flex option heading into Week 1.


Titans urged to force-feed Kendall Wright


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/13/2014) Titans receiver Kendall Wright is the team's best offensive player by a good margin, and Tennessee should force-feed him the ball, reports ESPN.com. The website notes Wright, who caught 94 passes last year, will be used more creatively by new coach Ken Whisenhunt: not just in the slot but outside, on deep throws and near the goal line.

"He's caught everything thrown to him, by whichever quarterback, over whichever defender, against whatever coverage," the report said.


Titans beat writer likes Kendall Wright


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(7/18/2014) Titans receiver Kendall Wright is in line for a breakout season in 2014, which is his third year in the NFL. 

And the Titans beat writer for the Tennessean, Jim Wyatt, is expecting an exceptional campaign. Wyatt decided to show off his projections for Fantasy owners for Wright, who he has catching 88 passes for 1,360 yards and eight touchdowns.

For an in-depth look at how Wyatt's projections compare to mine and Dave Richard check out this Fantasy Football Today blog here.


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.
