Patriots TE Tim Wright was not targeted in Super Bowl XLIX.
We saw Wright enter on a third-down play in the second quarter, but otherwise he wasn't heard from. The Patriots acquired Wright in last summer's Logan Mankins trade with Tampa Bay, and he finished the regular season with a 25-269-6 receiving line, handling a highly inconsistent and matchup-specific role. Wright turns 25 this April. We would not be surprised to see his usage grow as a "move" tight end behind Rob Gronkowski in 2015. Feb 1 - 10:54 PM

Tim Wright played on three snaps in Saturday's Divisional Round win over the Ravens.

Even with the Patriots taking a spread, pass-only approach against the Ravens' rugged run defense, Wright was a non-factor. He's essentially lost his role to a hot Danny Amendola. Giving up Logan Mankins for Wright in the preseason remains a head-scratcher.

Tim Wright wasn't targeted in the Patriots' Divisional Round win over the Ravens.

We are now nearly two months removed from our most recent "Wright game." He's just as likely to go target-less in the AFC Championship Game as he is to score a touchdown.

ESPN Patriots reporter Mike Reiss suggests Tim Wright could have a bigger role than usual in Saturday's Divisional game against the Ravens.

The Ravens rank fourth in the NFL against the run and haven't allowed a 100-yard rusher in 27 games. So logic follows that this will be more of a spread, pass-based gameplan from the Patriots. Wright would still make for a very risky play in DFS formats, as predicting his usage has been a shaky endeavor all year long. He has one or zero catches in 12-of-16 games this season.

Tim Wright caught 1-of-3 targets for 15 yards Week 17 against the Bills.

Even with Rob Gronkowski inactive, Wright could not get anything going against the Bills stout tight-end defense. A glorified wide receiver, Wright could be an intriguing fantasy option if given the targets, but he has not played consistently enough this season to be a reliable option.

Tim Wright caught his lone target for 12 yards in New England's Week 16 win over the Jets.

Wright now has two catches for 24 yards over his past four games.

Tim Wright wasn't targeted in the Patriots' Week 15 win over the Dolphins.

Wright now has just three targets over New England's past three games. There's no way of knowing when his next decent game might come.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 08:50:00 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.

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.
