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.

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.
Sep 17 - 5:13 PM

Kendall Wright caught 3-of-4 targets for 34 yards in the Bears' Week 1 loss to the Falcons.

Wright became a surprisingly hot DFS play late in the week, but he was only a part-time player before Kevin White's wrist/shoulder injury, playing behind Deonte Thompson as well. Wright did pick things up in the fourth quarter after seeing zero targets with 12 minutes left in the game, but not until White departed. Still, Wright's stock will point up if White misses any time. Wright will be back in the WR4/flex mix in Week 2 at Tampa Bay.
Sep 10 - 4:09 PM

Bears OC Dowell Loggains said the offense will use a committee at wide receiver to replace Cameron Meredith (knee).

Loggains said certain packages are designed for certain receivers. With Meredith done for the season with a torn ACL, Kendall Wright figures to take over in the slot. Kevin White and special teamer Deonte Thompson are penciled in as the outside receivers. While White is the default No. 1, Wright is probably the most palatable fantasy start for deep leagues and owners in a bind.
Sep 6 - 12:32 PM

Kendall Wright delivered three catches for 35 yards on five targets Sunday in the Bears’ third preseason game.

He was a machine out of the slot for Chicago, converting three third downs on the Bears’ opening possession. Wright obviously had plenty of incentive to play well on Sunday—he was going against his former team while trying to beat out veteran Victor Cruz for the starting role at slot receiver. The former first-round pick could be looking at a big bump in targets now that Cameron Meredith (ACL) is out for the year. As far as late-round flyers go, you could do a lot worse than Wright.
Aug 27 - 4:33 PM

Kendall Wright hauled in two-of-three targets for nine yards and a touchdown in the Bears' second preseason game.

Wright was the target on Mike Glennon's red-zone interception, but he got open on the same route at the end of the half for a seven-yard touchdown. More importantly, he worked as the first-team slot receiver ahead of Victor Cruz. That role likely will not result in much fantasy value while everyone is healthy, but Wright does have the talent to be a factor if given the chance.

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.

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.
