The Nashville Tennessean projects 88 receptions, 1,360 yards and eight touchdowns for Kendall Wright this season.
The projection is extremely optimistic, but it's notable as it comes from top beat man Jim Wyatt. It will depend on Jake Locker both staying healthy for the first time as an NFL starter, and also taking a giant leap forward in his fourth NFL season. If both those variables hold, Wright certainly has the separation ability and explosiveness to make a statistical leap while playing the Keenan Allen role in Ken Whisenhunt's offense. We're just not ready to bet that heavily on Locker. Jul 21 - 11:33 AM

ESPN Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky expects Kendall Wright's yards per reception (YPR) to "jump" this season.

Wright's 158 catches through two NFL seasons have flown under the radar because he's averaged a brutal 10.8 YPR with just six touchdowns. Kuharsky blames the old Munchak/Loggains scheme. With new coach Ken Whisenhunt likely to move Wright all over the formation as his Keenan Allen, there's plenty of room for a leap. Our prospects guru Josh Norris has noted that Wright was one of the best he's seen at the college level in terms of generating initial separation and sustaining it. We're more worried about Jake Locker than Wright's talent.

Titans wideouts coach Shawn Jefferson said Kendall Wright is "focusing on becoming a complete receiver."

Wright has piled up an impressive 158 catches in his first two NFL seasons, but he's done it as a low-upside, underneath slot man. The results are just 10.8 YPR and six touchdowns. "When we got him out of Baylor his route tree and knowledge of the game of football was very limited," Jefferson said. "So now he is taking it to the next level." Ideally, the Titans will use Wright as Ken Whisenhunt's new Keenan Allen, scheming him as a featured player in the slot and outside. Still, he's a volume-dependent PPR fantasy player with quarterback woes.

Kendall Wright caught five passes for 50 yards in Week 17 against the Texans.

Wright appeared in all 16 games this season and blew his rookie-year numbers from 2012 out of the water. He caught 94 passes for 1,079 yards and two touchdowns as a dynamic slot receiver that excels post-catch. Wright has developed into the Titans' clear No. 1 receiver, but his upside is capped a bit by the lack of end-zone visits. The Titans will look to upgrade at quarterback in the offseason, but Wright is locked in as a WR2 across the board. He obviously gets a bump in PPR formats.

Kendall Wright was limited to four catches for 22 yards in Sunday's Week 16 win over the Jaguars.

Wright wasn't able to get anything going in the short passing game with Ryan Fitzpatrick and fell out of the gameplan with Titans going run-heavy in the second-half. He was targeted seven times, behind only Nate Washington. It's just the fourth time this season Wright has been held under five catches. He'll take on the Texans' No. 2 pass defense in Week 17.

Kendall Wright racked up 12 catches for 150 yards in the Titans' Week 15 loss to the Cardinals.

Wright's most impressive reception of the day came in Patrick Peterson's coverage across the middle for a gain of 20. Peterson has been a borderline shutdown corner throughout 2013. Wright is a chain-moving machine at slot receiver. He'd be a higher-end WR2 if he scored more touchdowns. As is, Wright will be a WR2 in PPR leagues for Week 16 at Jacksonville. He's more of a high-end WR3 in standard leagues.

Titans coach Mike Munchak revealed Monday that Kendall Wright is dealing with injuries to both his ankle and shoulder.

Perhaps this explains why Wright's snaps were scaled back some in Sunday's loss to Denver, although the real drain on Wright's production was Broncos slot corner Chris Harris' shutdown coverage. Expect Wright to be in for a bounce-back game in Week 15 against a Cardinals defense that just lost primary slot defender Tyrann Mathieu to a season-ending knee injury.

Kendall Wright caught two passes for 17 yards in Sunday's Week 14 loss at Denver.

On a day the Titans scored 28 points and Ryan Fitzpatrick attempted 24 passes, Wright strangely saw just three targets. It wasn't an injury issue, he simply wasn't the first read on many throws as he worked out of the slot. The dud snaps a four-game streak with at least six catches and 77 yards, and makes the second-year man a major risk as a WR3 against the Cardinals in Week 15. Fitzpatrick could easily get shellshocked in that one.

Kendall Wright (ankle) will be listed as probable for Week 14.

Wright will be an intriguing WR2 play Sunday in a game at Denver that could get high scoring quickly. Wright is locked in as an every-week starter.
Fri, Dec 6, 2013 02:11:00 PM

Kendall Wright (ankle) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

It's the same routine Wright has been following for weeks. The target monster is a borderline WR2 in standard leagues, and high-end WR2 in PPR formats. Very few players should be in position to bench Wright for the first week of the fantasy playoffs.

Kendall Wright caught six balls for 77 yards in the Titans' Week 13 loss to Indianapolis.

It was another highly efficient effort for slot receiver Wright, who overcame in-game elbow and ankle injuries. His big gain was a 35-yarder down the middle with a Colts linebacker in coverage. Wright has turned a corner in his career and is an every-week WR2/3 in fantasy, with additional value in PPR leagues. Keep rolling him out against the Broncos in Week 14.

Kendall Wright is active for Week 13 against the Colts.

Wright was listed as probable with an ankle injury. The Titans' Week 13 inactives are WR Damian Williams, TE Craig Stevens, OL Kevin Matthews, OL Byron Stingily, DT Mike Martin, LB Zac Diles, and QB John Skelton.

Kendall Wright has been inside the opponent's 18-yard line on just four of his targets this season.

He's 1-for-1 on end-zone targets, per PFF's Mike Clay. This seems more like a hindsight than predictive stat, and somewhat fluky that the Titans' best receiver has been targeted so infrequently in scoring position. Only Wright's shortage of TDs has prevented him from flirting with WR1 value in standard league. He's an obvious, locked-in, every-week starter in PPR.

Kendall Wright (ankle) is probable for Week 13.

Wright will be a legit WR2 Sunday against Indianapolis.

Titans OC Dowell Loggains says he's given Kendall Wright leeway in terms of not running routes precisely by the numbers.

"He’d be the only guy on this team that has that option," Loggains said. "He’s the only guy I’ve ever been a part of on a football team that has had that freedom to get where he needs to get." Ryan Fitzpatrick described Wright's style as "street-ballish." Wright has already eclipsed his rookie-season numbers and is third in the league in yards-after-catch with 448. He isn't finding the end zone, but he's been Fitzpatrick's go-to guy in critical situations. Wright dominates targets and is a legitimate WR2. He's our No. 20 receiver for Week 13.
