Kendall Wright caught 7-of-13 targets for 81 yards in Saturday's Week 15 loss to the Lions.
Wright benefited from the Bears trailing big in the second half, catching 6-of-10 targets for 69 yards after the half. Wright now amassed a whopping 24 targets over the past two weeks as he's established himself as the favorite target in the passing game. Prior to two weeks ago, Wright had two or fewer receptions in six of his previous seven games, so the bottom could fall out at any moment, but for now he is a WR4/FLEX option in PPR formats in Week 16 against the Browns.

Kendall Wright caught 10-of-11 targets for 107 yards in the Bears' Week 14 win over the Bengals.

Wright was terrific against a Bengals secondary missing both Pacman Jones and Dre Kirkpatrick, finding easy separation in the short and intermediate areas and converting contested catches when called on. Wright has always been long on talent, but he has always been short on consistency, particularly in Chicago's run-first attack. He'll remain a dicey WR4/flex option when the Bears visit the Lions next.
Dec 10 - 4:20 PM

Kendall Wright caught 2-of-2 targets for 25 yards in the Bears' Week 13 loss to the 49ers.

Wright has been a useful on-field player for the Bears, but he has lacked fantasy value for pretty much the entire season in Chicago's run-first offense.
Dec 3 - 4:28 PM

Kendall Wright chipped in two catches for 25 yards on four targets Sunday in the Bears’ Week 11 loss to the Lions.

The slot receiver didn’t do anything of note in a game where the Bears threw for just 179 passing yards. Wright hasn’t topped 50 yards since Week 4, which was also the last time he scored a touchdown. He’ll look to bounce back against the Eagles in Week 12.
Nov 19 - 6:03 PM

Kendall Wright caught 5-of-8 targets for 46 yards in the Bears' Week 10 loss to the Packers.

He shared the team target lead with Dontrelle Inman, although Inman (6/88/0) was more productive. Wright is the slot receiver on a run-first Bears offense that doesn't use three-wide sets frequently, which means he's not a full-time player. He'll be a low-floor WR4/flex option in Week 11 against Detroit.
Nov 12 - 4:23 PM

Kendall Wright caught 2-of-8 passes for 23 yards in Week 8 against the Saints.

Wright's targets led the team, but he continued to be a non-factor with Mitchell Trubisky starting. He's been held under 40 yards in three straight games. Wright can be dropped with Chicago on a Week 9 bye.
Oct 29 - 4:59 PM

Kendall Wright was not targeted Week 7 against the Panthers.

Mitchell Trubisky attempted just seven passes all game, and only one of those targeted a receiver. Not playing a full complement of snaps in an offense allergic to throwing, Wright is not a fantasy option in any format.
Oct 22 - 4:07 PM

Kendall Wright played just 25-of-80 offensive snaps Week 6 against the Ravens.

Wright is easily the Bears' best receiver, but OC Dowell Loggains isn't using him in base one- or two-receivers sets. He's only playing in the slot. On a team that prefers to pound the ball on the ground in two-tight end sets and drain the clock, Wright can safely be dropped in 12-team fantasy leagues.
Oct 20 - 10:44 AM

Kendall Wright caught 2-of-3 targets for 36 yards in the Bears' Week 6 win over the Ravens.

Wright was understandably quiet in a game where Mitchell Trubisky completed only eight passes, but he did deliver a clutch 18-yard catch amid multiple defenders on Chicago's game-winning drive in overtime. Bears receivers are going to be up and down, inevitably, with a rookie quarterback on a run-first team. Wright will be a fringe WR4/flex play in Week 7 against the Panthers.
Oct 15 - 5:02 PM

Kendall Wright caught 4-of-5 targets for 46 yards in the Bears' Week 5 loss to the Vikings.

Wright caught the first two passes of the game from Mitchell Trubisky in his NFL debut, but everything went downhill for the Bears' offense after the first few drives stalled due to penalties. Wright is very clearly the No. 1 receiver, but that doesn't mean much in this offense. He'll be nothing more than a weak WR4/FLEX option next week in a road date with the Ravens.
Oct 10 - 12:18 AM

Kendall Wright caught 4-of-4 passes for 51 yards and a touchdown in the Bears' Week 4 loss to the Packers.

The touchdown was Wright's first as a Bear, while the yardage was his second most in four games. For his score, Wright raced by Damarious Randall in the end zone. It's cheap to say Wright's prospects could improve if the Bears go to Mitch Trubisky for Week 5, but it's hard to see how they could get any worse.

Kendall Wright wasn’t targeted Sunday in the Bears’ Week 3 win over the Steelers.

Mike Glennon completed just one pass to a wide receiver, a nine-yard completion to Deonte Thompson with under six minutes remaining in the fourth quarter. Wright’s nonexistence was baffling to say the least after leading the team with 10 targets a week earlier. He was limited by a shoulder injury at practice during the week, so perhaps it was a conscious effort on the Bears’ part to keep him under wraps. Needless to say, he’ll be difficult to trust Thursday night against the Packers.
Sep 24 - 5:38 PM

Kendall Wright (shoulder) wasn't listed on the Bears' final injury report for Week 3 against the Steelers.

Wright was upgraded to full practice on Friday after being limited on both Wednesday and Thursday. He'll play his usual role as the Bears' primary slot receiver on Sunday.
Sep 22 - 3:08 PM

Kendall Wright (shoulder) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Wright played his usual snaps in last week's loss to Tampa Bay and should be a go for Week 3 against the Steelers. He leads the Bears with 102 receiving yards in the early going.
Sep 20 - 7:52 PM

Kendall Wright caught 7-of-10 targets for 69 yards in the Bears' Week 2 loss to the Bucs.

It was a better effort than last week, though two of Wright's missed connections were back-to-back brutal drops in the second half. The first-year Bear did lead the team in targets, narrowly drawing more looks than Tarik Cohen and Zach Miller. Wright is going to have volume, but will struggle for yardage and red zone looks. He has 18 touchdowns in 68 career games. Wright is on the WR3/4 borderline in PPR leagues.
