Kendall Wright secured 2-of-4 targets for 17 yards in the Titans' Week 2 loss to the Browns.

Wright was not shadowed by Joe Haden, but the Titans' passing game was listless Sunday as Anthony Fasano (5-84-1) led the team in receiving. Wright will remain squarely on the WR3 radar against the up-tempo Colts in Week 3.

Kendall Wright left with a left leg injury in the first quarter of Sunday's Week 2 game at Cleveland, but returned a few plays later.

Wright could put little to no weight on the leg as he hopped off the field. His return is questionable. The Titans are already without Delanie Walker (hand). Wright is good to go, though he doesn't appear to be 100 percent.

Kendall Wright nabbed four catches for 101 yards and a touchdown in the Titans’ Week 1 win over the Buccaneers.

A rejuvenated Wright exploded for 87 yards in the first half with 52 coming on the game’s opening touchdown. He ate up 22 more yards to set up first and goal on a second quarter screen pass from Marcus Mariota. Wright seems to finally be on the same page with his quarterback, a refreshing change of pace after showing zero chemistry with Zach Mettenberger last year. Wright’s monster effort puts him on the WR2 radar for next week’s home opener against Cleveland.

The Titans' official website said WR Kendall Wright is rookie QB Marcus Mariota's favorite target.

Wright's chemistry with Mariota has shown this preseason. He has hauled in six passes for 84 yards in limited snaps. After a down season in 2013, Wright is a good bet to lead the Titans in targets this year. He is an underrated WR3 even in standard leagues.
Aug 31 - 11:53 AM

Kendall Wright caught three passes for 60 yards in the Titans' third preseason game.

Wright's highlight was a 30-yard catch in the second quarter. He's locked in as Marcus Mariota's top target and is an underrated WR3 pick in drafts.

Kendall Wright has reportedly been the "most consistent" wide receiver at Titans camp.

Per's Jim Wyatt, Wright "already has good chemistry with Marcus Mariota." Wright's physical limitations and rookie quarterback may cap his fantasy ceiling, but he's a strong WR4 pick in the 10th and 11th rounds of 12-team drafts. He's a good bet to finish the season with WR3 fantasy numbers.

Kendall Wright has shown strong chemistry with Marcus Mariota during the first week of training camp.

It's a welcome sight for fantasy owners after Wright couldn't get on the same page with Zach Mettenberger last season. Wright said he's been working to stay active in his route running because of Mariota's ability to extend plays with his feet. So far Mariota's transition from Oregon's spread offense to Ken Whisenhunt's more traditional system has gone off without a hitch. Wright will be a strong bounce-back candidate this year with Mariota under center.

Beat writer Jim Wyatt expects Kendall Wright to lead the Titans in receptions this year.

Per Wyatt, the Titans "have big plans" for Wright after his catches went from 94 in 2013 to 57 last year. It remains to be seen how well the team can execute those plans. Wright was vocally frustrated with the way Ken Whisenhunt used him and the team is now easing in a rookie quarterback. Delanie Walker, Dorial Green-Beckham, Harry Douglas and maybe even Hakeem Nicks will also be involved.
Aug 4 - 10:28 AM

Kendall Wright hinted at frustration with the Ken Whisenhunt scheme.

Wright saw just 93 targets last season, Whisenhunt's first season in charge of the Titans. He wasn't allowed to freelance as much as he did in 2013, when he racked up 94 catches on 140 targets. "I think a lot of things, but thinking and doing what I have to do are totally different," Wright said. "So I just keep my thoughts to myself. I don't even speak them out loud. Whatever I have to do, I'll do." This sounds like a player just biding his time until he can leave Tennessee behind.
Jun 9 - 9:08 AM

According to charting done by Football Outsiders, both Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter finished in the top-12 wide receivers who saw the highest rates of "uncatchable" targets in 2014.

Football Outsiders charted 27 of Hunter's 67 targets as uncatchable, good for a whopping 40.3-percent clip that "led" all wide receivers. Wright runs routes closer to the line of scrimmage -- more high-percentage stuff -- yet still saw 30 uncatchable balls among 93 targets (32.3 percent). Hunter is in danger of losing his starting job to rookie Dorial Green-Beckham, but Wright could take a decent-sized PPR leap if Marcus Mariota is more efficient than Tennessee's 2014 motley crew of Jake Locker, Charlie Whitehurst, and Zach Mettenberger.
May 9 - 9:08 AM

Titans exercised their 2016 team option on WR Kendall Wright.

It's worth $7.3 million. The option is guaranteed for injury only, meaning the Titans can still walk away if they're unsatisfied with Wright's 2015. Wright has soaked up targets and receptions from bad quarterbacks, but hasn't been the playmaker his draft pedigree suggested.
Apr 28 - 3:07 PM

The Titans plan to exercise WR Kendall Wright's 2016 team option.

Wright would be due $7.3 million under an option that is guaranteed for injury only. The No. 20 overall pick of the 2012 draft is set to make $884,000 in 2015. Wright has 215 catches across 45 career games, but isn't a realistic candidate for a long-term extension. His quarterback play hasn't helped, but Wright hasn't been enough of a playmaker.
Apr 23 - 3:56 PM

Kendall Wright caught two passes for nine yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Colts.

There would be no third-year breakout for Wright -- not with Jake Locker, Zach Mettenberger and Charlie Whitehurst at quarterback. But there were more warning signs than just inept QB play after Wright believed he would be Ken Whisenhunt's new Keenan Allen. Too often Wright was an afterthought, averaging just 6.6 targets per game on a team devoid of playmakers. Wright's contract year in 2015 would have more promise if a new quarterback could step right in and be a difference-maker. The Titans hold the No. 2 overall pick in the 2015 draft.

Kendall Wright caught 4-of-5 targets for 73 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

Wright had missed each of the Titans' past two games with a hand issue, but looked no worse for the wear in Jacksonville. Wright was shaken up after one of his longer grabs, but was never announced with an injury, and quickly returned. He'll be a WR4 for Week 17 against the Colts.
