Tim Wright was held without a catch in Week 14.

He had just two targets. Wright continued to play inconsistent snaps this week, and is nothing more than a touchdown-dependent TE2 going forward.
Dec 8 - 1:17 AM

Tim Wright caught his lone target for 12 yards in New England's Week 13 loss to the Packers.

Bill Belichick strikes again. Coming off a 61-snap, two-touchdown day against the Lions, Wright was a total afterthought at Lambeau Field. That's despite the fact that the Pats didn't go particularly run heavy. There's simply no way of predicting Wright's weekly usage, limiting him to hail-mary TE2 status.
Nov 30 - 7:58 PM

Tim Wright played on a season-high 61-of-81 snaps in Sunday's win over the Lions.

There was no way to see this coming. Wright's previous season-high in snaps was 21 as the Patriots hadn't been utilizing a lot of "12" packages. Of course, if we knew Wright was going to be on the field so much he would have been an easy TE1 bet because of his wideout-esque skill set. The problem is that we don't know if the Patriots will take the same offensive approach against the Packers in Week 13, making Wright a high-risk, high-reward kind of streamer.

Patriots TE Tim Wright caught 5-of-6 targets for 36 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 12 win over Detroit.

Essentially a tight end-wideout tweener, Wright got a major uptick in snaps as the Patriots transitioned to more of a spread offense to attack Detroit. Wright gave New England an early 7-3 lead on a four-yard touchdown catch. Wright put the Pats ahead for good on an eight-yard second-quarter score. So long as Wright is playing a lot of downs, he will be on the TE1 radar going forward. The Patriots travel to Lambeau to face the red-hot Packers next.
Nov 23 - 4:40 PM

Tim Wright had a two-yard touchdown in Week 11 against the Colts.

Wright scored on a play-action pass at the goal-line. He finished with two targets. Wright has managed four touchdowns on just 18 catches this season.
Nov 17 - 1:50 AM

Tim Wright wasn't targeted in New England's Week 9 win over the Broncos.

Just another week on the Wright roller-coaster. Wright is obviously capable of big games, but he's just as capable of doughnuts. He can't be relied on in re-draft leagues, and is a hail-mary option in daily formats.
Nov 2 - 8:50 PM

Tim Wright caught 7-of-7 targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in New England's Week 8 rout of the Bears.

The catches and targets were new season highs, while the touchdown was Wright's third in four games. All encouraging developments, but Wright's usage remains far too inconsistent to lean on him as a TE1. At best, Wright is a tournament dart throw in daily leagues.
Oct 26 - 6:25 PM

Tim Wright wasn't targeted in the Patriots' Week 7 win over the Jets.

The zero-target effort was Wright's third in seven games as a Patriot. The doughnut comes as a bit of a surprise, as according to Pro Football Focus' Nathan Jahnke, Wright played his most snaps of the season. Either way, it serves to further illustrate that Wright is nothing more than a desperation TE2 who could give you a 0.0 any given week.
Oct 17 - 12:18 AM

Tim Wright played on just 16-of-74 snaps in Sunday's win at Buffalo.

We were hoping Wright had earned more playing time with his 5-85-1 performance in Week 5, but it didn't happen. He saw just one target Sunday, luckily turning it into a 1-yard touchdown to salvage the day for streamers. But until his role in the offense grows, Wright will be a TE2 only. He's played on just 53-of-212 snaps (25.0 percent) over the last three weeks.

Tim Wright had a one-yard touchdown catch in Sunday's Week 6 win over Buffalo.

It was his only target of the game. The Patriots are playing more two tight end sets, but Wright continues to lose snaps to Michael Hoomanawanui. Despite touchdowns in consecutive games, his role in the offense is still a concern. Wright will be a boom-or-bust TE2 in Week 7 against the Jets.
Oct 12 - 6:17 PM

Coach Bill Belichick said "nobody works harder" than Tim Wright.

Wright broke out with a 5-85-1 game in Week 5, but his meager playing time continued with just 19-of-84 snaps. The question now is if he's earned more snaps, which would obviously give him more week-to-week consistency and put him on the TE1 radar in the Aaron Hernandez role. Belichick's comments at least lend hope. "Is he there yet? No, but I'd say he's gaining on it steadily," Belichick said.

Tim Wright played on just 19-of-84 snaps in Sunday night's win over the Bengals.

It may have looked like Wright was on the field a ton as he broke out with 5-85-1, but he was just a package player once again. His season-high for snaps is still just 21, set in Week 1. Wright has the skill set to help the Patriots as an Aaron Hernandez type and his role may grow, but week-to-week consistency is going to be tough to manage on this meager usage. He'll be a boom-or-bust TE2 against the Bills in Week 6.

Oct 6 - 9:14 AM

Tim Wright had five catches for 85 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 5 win over the Bengals.

The Patriots used more two tight end sets this week, with Wright playing opposite Rob Gronkowski. He was heavily involved in the gameplan, scoring on a 17-yard touchdown from Tom Brady in the first quarter. Wright secured all five of his targets and was the No. 3 option in the passing game. He's on the TE2 radar for Week 6 against the Bills.
Oct 6 - 1:20 AM

ESPN Boston could see TE Tim Wright cutting into Danny Amendola's snaps.

Wright played on 21-of-86 snaps in his Patriots debut, securing all three of his targets for 15 yards. ESPN's Mike Reiss believes Amendola "doesn't look like the explosive player we saw in the 2013," and could see his role scaled back. Wright is on the TE2 radar, but is currently no higher than the No. 5 option in the pass game.
