Patriots backup pass catchers don't do much Week 13


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/30/2014) The Patriots backup pass catchers did little Week 13 against the Packers.

Julian Edelman actually turned in a decent game despite dealing with an injury. He hauled in seven catches for 48 yards. Edelman missed time with a thigh injury, but was able to return to the contest. Michael Hoomanawanui caught one ball, gaining 23 yards. Timothy Wright also hauled in one pass, gaining 12 yards. 

The group will take on the Chargers Week 14. 


Timothy Wright predictably annoying


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/23/2014) Guess who's back in the headlines in Fantasy? The same tight end who sent everyone flocking to the waiver wire after his five-catch, 85-yard, touchdown-scoring performance in Week 5 and his seven-catch, 61-yard, touchdown-scoring performance in Week 8. The Patriots' Timothy Wright did one better Week 12 against Detroit, scoring two touchdowns on five catches for 36 yards.

But here's the problem: Aside from those three games -- which are pretty well spaced apart, you'll notice -- he has a total of six catches for 38 yards.

So should we be flocking to the waiver wire to add him again? A tight end doesn't score two touchdowns every week, you know.

Yeah ... but Wright doesn't do anything, not even catch a pass, every week. Why would that change now? The proper response to this performance is indignation that those two touchdowns didn't go to someone else. Don't make it anything more.


Patriots TE Timothy Wright finds paydirt twice in Week 12 win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Patriots tight end Timothy Wright notched his first career two-touchdown game, leading his team to a 34-9 victory over the Lions in Week 12.

With Rob Gronkowski heavily covered, Wright came down 4-yard touchdown reception in the opening period. In the second quarter Wright hauled in an 8-yard pass from Tom Brady in the end zone for his second score of the day in the second quarter. He was targeted six times and finished with five grabs for 36 yards and two touchdowns.

Wright has 23 catches for 210 yards and six touchdowns on the season.


Patriots TE doing things the 'Wright' way


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Despite wild production inconsistency, Patriots tight end Timothy Wright has earned the praise of tight ends coach Brian Daboll.

"Tim ... really takes pride in his craft, works really hard in the classroom, on the practice field, game day," Daboll told the Boston Herald. "It's always a proess when you come to a new place and you're learning a new system. We're kind of in the meat and potatoes here in November, and our expectations for all our players is to really know what to do. They need to do that when they go out on the field on Sunday."

Wright followed his seven-catch perfomance in Week 8 with his fourth blanking of the season Sunday against Denver. He has 17 receptions on the year, but snagged 12 in two games combined.


Timothy Wright back to torment us again


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/26/2014) Hey, guess what? Patriots tight end Timothy Wright caught seven passes for 61 yards and a touchdown Week 8 against Chicago. Pretty cool, right? It kind of reminds me of those five catches for 85 yards and a touchdown he had Week 5 against Cincinnati.

Because we were all so thrilled with where he went from there.

That's sarcasm, of course. No one was thrilled with one catch for 1 yard over a two-game span, even if that catch was a touchdown. And that makes this performance so much harder to assess. We could say it's a sign the Patriots are looking to get him more involved in the passing game, reverting to the two-tight end attack that was so successful for them back when Aaron Hernandez was still around. But that clearly wasn't the case last time. So then we could say it's just a fluke, but flukes generally don't happen twice within a four-game span.

I'm thinking it's confirmation he's another player the Patriots will work in and out of the game plan based on matchups, and since they're not exactly forthright about their plans from week to week, you won't really know the right time to start Wright. He's an intriguing add in deeper leagues, where you can afford to take a zero now and then, but in standard 12-team formats, not so much.


Patriots backup pass catchers do little Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The Patriots backup pass catchers did little Week 8 against the Bears.

Tight end Timothy Wright actually turned in a strong performance, hauling in seven receptions for 61 yards and a score. He caught all seven of his targets. Julian Edelman only hauled in one pass, gaining 14 yards. Danny Amendola was able to catch two balls, but only gained 5 yards.

The three will look for more Week 9 against the Broncos. 


Timothy Wright doesn't have clear role yet


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) After seemingly breaking out as Tom Brady's second tight end Week 5 against Cincinnati, the Patriots' Timothy Wright did find the end zone for a second straight game Week 6 at Buffalo. But he did so in minimalist fashion, catching one pass on one target for 1 yard.

It's not like the Patriots weren't throwing the ball, either. In fact, Brady set season-highs in passing yards (361) and passing touchdowns (four). He just didn't look Wright's way much when he was on the field.

That wasn't all that often, I should add. Wright played only 23 percent of the Patriots' snaps, which was actually an improvement from the 22 percent he played in Week 5. Unless the Patriots make a concerted effort to get him the ball, he's not going to be able to do much of that.

The Patriots like to use two tight ends as much as any team in football, and Wright remains on the periphery in Fantasy for that reason alone. But he's little more than a desperation bye-week replacement in his current role.


Patriots TE Timothy Wright nets TD in second straight game


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Patriots tight end Timothy Wright scored for the second straight game during a 37-22 win Week 6 at Buffalo. Wright's only reception and target was a 1-yard touchdown that gave New England a 7-0 lead early in the second quarter.

Wright has totaled six catches for 86 yards and two touchdowns in his last two games. The Patriots are back in action Thursday against the Jets.


Timothy Wright has more to prove


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2014) After playing a minimal role on offense the first four weeks, Patriots tight end Timothy Wright suddenly became a favorite target of quarterback Tom Brady Week 5 against Cincinnati, catching all five balls thrown his way for 85 yards.

And yet he may not be the answer to your prayers at tight end.

For one thing, five targets normally wouldn't be enough to sustain any player, much less a tight end. You can't expect Wright to catch every ball thrown to him every week. And a big reason why Wright got only five targets is because he played only 22 percent of the Patriots' snaps. Of the 19 plays he was on the field, he got the ball on five of them. Pretty wild.

That said, the Patriots obviously made more of an effort to get him the ball, and the results speak for themselves. Over the last few years, Brady has been at his best when he's had two tight ends he can trust, and Wright took a big step toward becoming that second guy in Week 5.

So you certainly wouldn't be crazy to add him in Fantasy. Just understand that he has to be on the field more to continue making this sort of impact.


Timothy Wright breaks out on Sunday Night Football


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/6/2014) Patriots tight end Timothy Wright, acquired via trade right before the season, entered Week 5 with four catches for 35 scoreless yards. He exploded against the Bengals for five catches, 85 yards and a touchdown.

Wright caught each of his targets and proved dangerous down the seam, as he showed on a 17-yard, first-quarter score. The Patriots used two tight ends often Sunday night, and the formation paid big dividends. Wright and Rob Gronkowski combined for 11 catches, 185 yards and two scores.

Wright visits the Bills in Week 6.


Brandon Bolden, Timothy Wright contribute little


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/21/2014) Patriots running back Brandon Bolden ran twice for 4 yards Week 3 against Oakland. Tight end Timothy Wright caught the only pass thrown his way for 20 yards.

The two will continue to play just a supporting role Week 4 at Kansas City.


Timothy Wright makes little impact in debut


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Newly acquired Patriots tight end Timothy Wright did not find himself integrated into the offense in his first game Sunday against the Dolphins in Week 1.

Wright, who was acquired via trade little more than a week ago, was targeted just three times in the passing game. He hauled in all three receptions but totaled just 15 yards in the game, a 33-20 loss.

Wright should see his role increase as he gets more comfortable in his new surroundings. The Patriots face the Vikings in Week 2. 


Timothy Wright deal not indicator of concern about Gronk


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) The Patriots' acquisition of Buccaneers tight end Timothy Wright does not mean New England is worried about Rob Gronkowski's progress, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter. Gronkowski is in a "good spot" as he comes back from ACL surgery, and this deal "provides depth, options," the report said.

Gronkowski has not played in the preseason. His status for Week 1 is unknown, though Gronk has said he plans to play all 16 games.


Pats get fourth-round pick in addition to Timothy Wright


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) The Patriots traded guard Logan Mankins to the Buccaneers for tight end Timothy Wright and a fourth-round draft pick in 2015, reports ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Report: Pats trading Logan Mankins to Buccaneers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/26/2014) The Patriots "have agreed to the parameters of a trade" that will send Pro Bowl guard Logan Mankins to the Buccaneers for tight end Timothy Wright and a draft pick, reports Fox Sports. Wright caught 54 passes for 571 yards and five touchdowns last season.

Bucs not thrilled with Timothy Wright


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Buccaneers coach Lovie Smith said tight end Timothy Wright is "not playing as well as he should be playing," reports the Tampa Bay Times. "He's dropped some balls. If you've been watching him at practice, he's dropped balls. He's a big part of what we want to do with the two-receiver, two-tight end set. Tim hasn't blocked as well inside."

Wright is behind rookie Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Brandon Myers.


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.
