Lovie talks up Timothy Wright


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) Seemingly lost in the shuffle among the tight end depth chart in Tampa Bay is Timothy Wright, who saw his team bring in Brandon Myers via free agency and Austin Seferian-Jenkins via the draft. But Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith sees the value in Wright. 

"Tim is a guy I should have talked about more because he's another guy that does something well it seems like every day," Smith said according to the official team website. "Nowadays, with the emergence of the passing game and you've got to be able to pass to win ... the matchups ... tight end versus safety, tight end versus linebacker, we have a good matchup with Tim Wright. He of course can do things in-line, but he can split out, he can run all of the passing tree, he's natural moving out and running routes too. I'm very pleased with him and all he's done since Day One."

The website believes things are "going pretty well" for Wright, who scored five touchdowns when pressed into action last season. 


Bucs make smart pick with Mike Evans


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/8/2014) Josh McCown had great success in 2013 with the Bears when he stepped in for the injured Jay Cutler in part because of his receiving corps with Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.

He doesn't have that same talent with the Buccaneers, but he might not be far off following the NFL Draft. The Bucs drafted Texas A&M receiver Mike Evans at No. 7 overall, and he will join Vincent Jackson as the starters in Tampa Bay.

Now, this doesn't elevate McCown to a starting Fantasy quarterback, but it definitely helps his outlook. Jackson will remain a solid No. 2 Fantasy receiver, and Evans has plenty of sleeper appeal with a late-round pick in seasonal leagues.

The Bucs are going to be run-first with Doug Martin, but now they have a legitimate receiving corps, including quality tight ends in Timothy Wright and Brandon Myers.

In dynasty leagues, plan on drafting Evans with a first-round pick, and he will likely be selected in Round 8 or later in re-draft formats.


Expect to see a lot of Timothy Wright, Brandon Myers


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/22/2014) The Buccaneers will likely use both of their tight ends this season with Timothy Wright and Brandon Myers expected to split time and play in tandem, reports ESPN.

The report says "Wright did some nice things as a rookie last season, but Wright is limited as a blocker. That’s why the Bucs brought in Brandon Myers. He can contribute as a blocker and a receiver."

The Bucs aren't likely to use a fullback very often, which means there could be a lot of two-tight-end sets. 


Is Timothy Wright a No. 1 tight end?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/5/2014) Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright was a pleasant surprise for an undrafted rookie, catching 54 passes for 571 yards and five touchdowns. But he's limited as a blocker and might not be the long-term answer for Tampa Bay, reports ESPN.com.

The website says the Bucs must upgrade at the position and "bring in an all-purpose tight end through the draft or free agency."


Timothy Wright concludes fine finish to season


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright will have plenty of momentum to take into 2014 if the end to this season is any indication.

Wright caught five passes for 58 yards and a 1-yard score in the second quarter in the Sunday loss at New Orleans. He finished the year with 28 catches for 253 yards and three touchdowns in his last five games.

Nearly all his production in Week 17 came in the first half, during which he snagged four Mike Glennon passes for 34 yards and the score.


Timothy Wright silent despite four reception


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright caught four passes in Week 16 against the Rams, but was mostly held in check in a 23-13 loss. Wright had a long reception of just 8 yards, and finished the game with only 27 yards receiving overall.  

Wright is enjoying a solid rookie season, and has one more game in Week 17 to add to his numbers. He heads into the finale with 49 receptions for 513 yards on four touchdowns. 


Is Timothy Wright worth the risk in Week 16?


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/20/2013) Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright is rolling coming into Week 16 at St. Louis. But is he worth the risk of starting in a potential Fantasy title game?

Wright has touchdowns in consecutive outings against Buffalo and San Francisco, and he's scored at least seven Fantasy points in three of his past four games. He could easily keep it going because we've seen when he's involved he tends to do well, having scored at least seven Fantasy points in five of the six games when he's had at least five targets.

But the Rams have done well against tight ends all season. Only Martellus Bennett and Vernon Davis have reached double digits in Fantasy points against St. Louis, including matchups with Tony Gonzalez, Jason Witten, Greg Olsen, Delanie Walker, Coby Fleener and Jimmy Graham, who was limited to two catches for 25 yards last week.

I'm nervous with Wright in this matchup, and I don't trust him as a starter in a potential championship game. He is more of a No. 2 Fantasy tight end this week.


Timothy Wright scores in second straight game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright scored for a second straight game Week 15 vs. San Francisco. Wright finished with seven catches for 82 yards -- both team highs -- during a 33-14 loss.

Wright cut the Tampa Bay deficit to six points with 14:54 left, as he was wide open in the end zone to haul in a 24-yard touchdown pass from Mike Glennon. Unfortunately, the 49ers would score the final 13 points of the game, pulling away from Tampa Bay.

Wright has scored has four touchdowns -- all coming in his last eight games. The 82 yards were the second highest of his career behind the 91 yards he had in Week 6. The rookie was targeted a team-high nine times Sunday.

The Bucs are back in action Week 16 at St. Louis.


Timothy Wright a Fantasy option to avoid Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/10/2013) 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.


Timothy Wright hauls in third touchdown


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) 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
(12/4/2013) 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


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/1/2013) 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
(11/27/2013) 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.

Timothy Wright snags eight in defeat of Lions


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Buccaneers rookie tight end Timothy Wright might not be flying under the radar much longer. He caught seven passes in nine targets Sunday in a win over Detroit.

Wright now has five games with four or more receptions after snagging eight for 75 yards against the Lions. He will seek to stay hot in Carolina in Week 13.


Timothy Wright again plays minimal role


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/17/2013) After slumping with one catch for 19 yards last week against the Dolphins, Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright wasn't any better Week 11 against the Falcons. He was targeted twice but had just one catch for 13 yards on a day when wide receiver Vincent Jackson paced the receiving corps with 10 catches for 165 yards and a touchdown.

Before these last two games, Wright had a five-game stretch in which he averaged 4.6 catches for 50.6 yards. He'll look to return to that level Week 12 at Detroit.


Rebound a possibility for Timothy Wright


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/13/2013) After back-to-back touchdown-scoring performances, Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright had one measly catch for 19 yards against the Dolphins last week, continuing to frustrate Fantasy owners with his unpredictability. Well, guess what? That's not expected to change Week 11 against Atlanta.

The Falcons rank 25th against the pass, allowing 252.0 yards per game, and have given up the 14th-most Fantasy points to tight ends this season. Judging by those numbers, it's a good matchup, right? Except it also looked like a good one Week 7 at Atlanta, and Wright, who was coming off a breakthrough 91-yard performance at the time, could muster only two catches for 15 yards.

Of course, wide receiver Vincent Jackson got an unruly 22 targets in that game, so as long as he comes back down to earth a bit, Wright should get his share this week. Jamey Eisenberg, Dave Richard and Nathan Zegura all expect better than last time, ranking him among their top eight at the position.

Timothy Wright a non-factor Week 10


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/12/2013) After two strong games, Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright was nearly invisible in the win over Miami, catching his only target for 19 yards. Wright had scored a touchdown in each of the previous two weeks while reeling in nine grabs for 106 yards.

Wright will try to get back on track Week 11 vs. Atlanta.


Timothy Wright riding momentum in to Week 10


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/7/2013) Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright is coming into Week 10 riding a two-game touchdown streak, in which he's caught nine passes on 13 targets for 106 total yards. He's averaged 10.5 Fantasy points over his last two games and has nine or more Fantasy points in three of his last four.

Wright, a former wide receiver in college, should continue to step up in place of the injured Mike Williams. Mike Glennon seems to like Wright in the passing game and the majority of his prouduction has come after the team's Week 5 bye. 

The Dolphins -- Wright's Week 10 opponent -- have not been kind to tight ends lately, holding them to five or fewer Fantasy points in the last four weeks. But for every pass-friendly tight end they've shut down (Rob Gronkowski had two Fantasy points in Week 8), the Dolphins have allowed one to excel (Jordan Cameron had 17 points in Week 1). 

With Wright's elevated role in the passing game, he should be started in most formats, despite what looks like a tough week 10 matchup. 


Timothy Wright scores in back-to-back games


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2013) Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright found the end zone for the second straight week during Sunday’s contest against the Seahawks in Week 9.

Mike Glennon hooked up with Timothy Wright in the back of the end zone for a 12-yard strike in the first quarter. The touchdown came on a free play, as the Seahawks were flagged for offside. Wright led all receivers as he caught all four of his targeted passes for 58 yards and a touchdown in a 27-24 defeat in overtime.

Wright has 24 receptions for 259 yards with two touchdowns on the year. He'll look to stay productive at home against Miami in Week 10. Miami allowed 47 receiving yards to tight ends against Cincinnati.

Timothy Wright scores first touchdown late


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/25/2013) Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright got off to a slow start in Week 8 against the Panthers, but came up with a big fourth quarter to salvage his game in a 31-13 loss Thursday.

Wright had just one catch for 10 yards at halftime, and was held without a catch in the third quarter. Fortunately, as the Buccaneers rallied in an attempt to make the score more respectable late, Wright and Glennon started to get on the same page. Wright brought in four receptions in the fourth quarter, one of which went for a 10-yard touchdown, the first of his career.

Wright finished with five receptions for 48 yards to go along with his touchdown. He has 19 catches for 195 yards in four games since Glennon took over as quarterback. He will try to continue his solid play in Week 9 against the Seahawks. 


Timothy Wright has tough Week 8 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/22/2013) Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright followed up his would-be breakout Week 6 performance with a bit of a dud against the Falcons in Week 7, catching two passes for 15 yards on three targets. 

Week 8 doesn't bring much hope for a rebound, as the Bucs take on the Panthers, who have allowed six Fantasy points per week to opposing tight ends. Just one tight end, in fact, has managed over 50 receiving yards against Carolina this season -- Kyle Rudolph's 97-yard performance in Week 6. 

With Wright failing to carry momentum forward, and the Panthers staring him down in Week 8, it's best to leave the 23-year-old Rutgers product on the bench (or just left on the waiver wire) for this Thursday night game. 


Timothy Wright has quiet follow-up


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/20/2013) Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright -- who broke out along with fellow rookie Mike Glennon last week, catching seven passes for 91 yards -- didn't have as much of a connection with the young quarterback Week 7 at Atlanta. He finished with two catches for 15 yards -- his first not coming until midway through the second quarter -- and was targeted only three times.

Of course, Glennon was so busy throwing the ball to star wide receiver Vincent Jackson that he couldn't really establish a connection with anyone else. Of his 44 passes, a whopping 22 went Jackson's way.

Wright, who doesn't have much competition for targets aside from Jackson and wide receiver Mike Williams, will hope for a better percentage of them Week 8 against the Panthers.


Can Timothy Wright do it again?


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/15/2013) Since the Buccaneers made the change to Mike Glennon at quarterback, tight end Timothy Wright has averaged 6.0 catches for 66.0 yards in two games. The two rookies got in sync in offseason workouts, and it's carried over to regular-season games.

Of course, the Eagles' 31st-ranked pass defense no doubt contributed to his seven catches for 91 yards last week, but the good news is the Falcons, who the Buccaneers will visit in Week 7, have been nearly as ineffective against the pass, ranking 26th. They've allowed the seventh-most Fantasy points per game to tight ends.

Wright may end up losing some targets to wide receiver Mike Williams, who's expected back after missing Week 6 with a hamstring injury, but in a week when Jimmy Graham is on bye, he's an intriguing and highly available replacement. Jamey Eisenberg is willing to rank him as high as 11th among tight ends this week, which is certainly aggressive but not so unreasonable given the alternatives.


Tight end Timothy Wright has rookie bond with Mike Glennon


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2013) Buccaneers rookie tight end Timothy Wright has a rapport with rookie quarterback Mike Glennon, and it's showing on the field. Wright has 12 catches for 132 yards the past two weeks.

“Mike and I came in together as rookies and spent a lot of time in the offseason getting our timing down,’’ Wright said Monday, per the Tampa Tribune. “You never thought we’d be the two hooking up together at this point, but it happened.’’

Undrafted out of Rutgers, Wright began the season fourth on the depth chart after switching from wideout to tight end. Tom Crabtree is still listed as the starter, but he played primarily in short-yardage situations against Philly. With two other Buccaneers tight ends on IR, Wright is the leading pass-catcher. 

“It’s definitely starting to click,’’ Wright said. "I had to learn the ins and outs of a new position, learning how the linebackers and safeties are going to cover me."


Timothy Wright has best game yet


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright had perhaps the best game of his career on Sunday during the Week 6 home game against the Eagles. With Mike Glennon throwing the passes, Wright broke out for seven receptions for 91 yards.

Wright finished second on the team in yardage and targets with nine. He did not get into the end zone, but came close for the Buccaneers. He had a long catch of 36 yards averaged 13 yards per catch.

The 23-year-old Wright had one catch in his first three games this season. He has 12 catches for 132 yards in his last two games. He'll hope to keep that going when he next takes the field Week 7 at Atlanta.
