Bears signed WR Kendall Wright to a one-year, $4 million contract.
Wright was underused as the Titans' slot receiver last year, but he has the talent to make an impact in Chicago. His signing makes Eddie Royal's $5 million cap hit expendable. Cameron Meredith, Kevin White, and Wright should open 2017 as Chicago's top three wideouts, with Markus Wheaton competing for a roster spot. The 20th overall pick in the 2012 draft, 27-year-old Wright offers vertical ability in the slot. He underachieved in Tennessee due to clashes with several different coaching staffs and hard-luck injuries. Mar 11 - 7:16 PM

Cameron Wolfe of the Denver Post believes impending free agent Kendall Wright would be a good fit for the Broncos.

It's a near certainty that Wright won't be back in Tennessee, and Denver could use a slot receiver to complement Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas. Coming off a season where he was benched multiple times, Wright should be relatively affordable. Denver's offense was painfully stagnant down the stretch.

Impending free agent Kendall Wright said he feels "free."

Benched in Week 14 and a healthy scratch in the season finale, Wright has certainly played his final game with the Titans, who did not have much need for a player they deemed a slot receiver. Wright will head to free agency coming off two disappointing seasons, but he is only 27 and flashed big-time talent early in his career. He might have to settle for a prove-it deal, but Wright could end up being one of the bargains of free agency.

Titans WR Kendall Wright is a healthy scratch for Week 17 against the Texans.

It's a fitting end to Wright's nightmare 2016. Headed for free agency, Wright isn't a part of the Titans' future after catching just 29 passes in 11 games this season. Also inactive for the Titans are CB Jason McCourty, DB Curtis Riley, OLB David Bass, OG Sebastian Tretola, TE Jace Amaro and DE Angelo Blackson.
Jan 1 - 11:33 AM

Kendall Wright caught 2-of-4 targets for 21 yards in the Titans' Week 16 loss to the Jaguars.

Benched a few weeks ago for tardiness and missing meetings, Wright has played the last two weeks but hasn't done much. We would expect that trend to continue when the Titans face the Texans with Matt Cassel at quarterback in Week 17.

Kendall Wright was benched in Week 14 against the Broncos due to tardiness and missed meetings.

Despite his non-flashy playing style, Wright has always had a bit of a diva streak in him, often clashing with Titans coaching staffs and now getting benched for irresponsibility. This is Wright's contract year. The Titans will move forward with Rishard Matthews and Tajae Sharpe as their top two receivers. Wright figures to be replaced by Harry Douglas in the slot.

Kendall Wright is inactive for Week 14 against the Broncos.

Wright played just 16-of-58 snaps in Week 12, and the Titans just had their bye week. With no injuries outside of DE Jurrell Casey (foot), Wright didn't make the 46-man active squad. Harry Douglas, Tre McBride, and Marc Mariani are ahead of Wright due to their special teams prowess.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 11:48:00 AM

Kendall Wright played 38-of-71 (54%) snaps Week 11 against the Colts.

Wright has been putting together decent fantasy days, but he is still firmly behind Rishard Matthews (66 snaps) and Tajae Sharpe (61) in the pecking order. The lack of playing time makes him a volatile fantasy option at best.
Mon, Nov 21, 2016 10:29:00 AM

Kendall Wright caught 4-of-6 targets for 52 yards in Week 11 against the Colts.

Wright came alive in the second half, but didn't do much with his targets. He's had over 50 yards or a touchdown in four straight games despite a low-volume role. Wright won't be more than a WR4 for Week 12.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 05:46:00 PM

Kendall Wright caught 2-of-3 targets for eight yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 10 win over the Packers.

Despite the touchdown, it was a disappointing effort on a day where the Titans scored 47 points. Wright has carved out a role on the real-life gridiron, but it's not translating to WR4 value in fantasy leagues.
Sun, Nov 13, 2016 07:04:00 PM

Kendall Wright caught 2-of-4 targets for 64 yards in the Titans' Week 9 loss to the Chargers.

Wright led the Titans in receiving yards, but he continues to be used as a fairly low-volume rotational receiver in Tennessee's offense despite Wright's obvious playmaking superiority over his target competition. Wright is a really good player, but he is unreliable in fantasy. With that said, he'll be an intriguing upside option in a Week 10 date with Green Bay's depleted secondary.
Sun, Nov 6, 2016 08:32:00 PM

Coach Mike Mularkey said Friday the Titans intend to keep Kendall Wright as a rotational wide receiver.

Underselling easily his best wideout, Mularkey described Wright as a "very good slot receiver, third-down receiver." Wright has turned in the Titans' two best wide receiver performances of the season over the past three games, but he has yet to play more than 50 percent of Tennessee's snaps in a given week. The limited usage will make Wright tough to trust in fantasy leagues. In between his big weeks, Wright mixed in a three-target, 14-yard clunker.

Kendall Wright caught 4-of-5 targets for 84 yards and a touchdown in the Titans' Week 8 win over the Jaguars, adding a six-yard rush.

Wright's touchdown was a beautiful 36-yard strike from Marcus Mariota on play-action. Wright got behind the defense to make a nice catch falling backwards. Wright has 14 catches for 229 yards and two touchdowns over his past three games. That includes a 2/12/0 clunker, but he's back on the WR4 radar. Wright's re-emergence has put Tajae Sharpe's fantasy value to sleep.
Fri, Oct 28, 2016 12:20:00 AM

Kendall Wright caught 2-of-4 targets for 12 yards in the Titans' Week 7 loss to the Colts.

Still only about a 33-percent player in the Titans' offense, Wright is destined to be up and down from a fantasy standpoint. Despite his Week 6 breakout, Wright won't be worth using in fantasy leagues in Week 8 against the Jaguars.
Sun, Oct 23, 2016 05:33:00 PM

Kendall Wright played just 22-of-62 snaps (35%) Week 6 against the Browns.

Wright played fewer snaps than Rishard Matthews, Andre Johnson, and Tajae Sharpe. Despite the lack of work, Wright was targeted on 9-of-14 routes and led the team with 133 yards. Perhaps the performance will convince the Titans to give him more snaps, but he is still a part-time player on a poor passing offense. Wright will likely be overvalued on the wire this week.
