The Cardinals signed wide receiver Kendall Wright.
Wright was with the Cardinals in early October, then he was released later in the month, but now he's back with the team. The veteran receiver is not a recommended fantasy pickup at the moment.
The Cardinals signed Kendall Wright.
Wright was with the Vikings during the summer and now he lands in Arizona, the Vikings’ opponent this Sunday. Even Larry Fitzgerald is difficult to trust in fantasy lineups as a Cardinals pass catcher at this point, so Wright can be ignored for fantasy purposes.
The Vikings are releasing Kendall Wright.
Wright signed this offseason and was thought to have a chance at a big role in the slot, but the emergence of third-year receiver Laquon Treadwell allowed the Vikings to move on from Wright. It'll be Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, and Treadwell as Minnesota's top-three receivers to open the year.
The Vikings are signing wide receiver Kendall Wright, according to NFL Network.
Wright had 59 receptions for 614 yards and a touchdown in his lone season in Chicago last year, and the former first-round pick of the Titans will attempt to carve out a role as one of Kirk Cousins' top targets in Minnesota. Wright is likely to push third-year receiver Laquon Treadwell as the team's third wide receiver, and it'll be an interesting battle to watch leading up to the season. If Wright ends up as the number three behind Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs, he'd have some upside in deeper PPR leagues.
Kendall Wright catches five passes in Week 17.
Wright gained only 29 yards on his five receptions. He put up a 59/614/1 line in his first year with the Bears, and it remains to be seen if he remains the slot receiver for the team next season.
Kendall Wright catches four passes in Bears' win.
Wright was targeted a team-high six times against the Browns, gaining 27 yards on his four receptions. The slot receiver might be the best option of the Chicago receivers next week against the Vikings, but he's difficult to trust in fantasy lineups.
Kendall Wright gets 13 targets against the Lions.
Wright worked as Mitchell Trubisky's number one target for a second-straight week, catching seven passes for 81 yards in the Week 15 loss. Overall, Wright played well, but he did appear to have a chance to at least deflect Trubisky's first interception of the game, as he started to go up for the high throw and then didn't (he might've though his own guy was behind him). Wright now has 17 receptions for 188 yards over the last two weeks, so he's looking like an intriguing FLEX option in Week 16—especially in PPR leagues. However, the Bears aren't likely to throw 46 times next week versus Cleveland.
Kendall Wright has good game in Week 14.
This was one of Wright's best overall games of the season, as he was featured by the Bears and caught ten passes (on 11 targets) for 107 yards in the win over Cincinnati. Perhaps he'll be peppered with targets from the slot over the final three games of the season, but it's risky to trust Wright in fantasy lineups.
Kendall Wright catches two passes in Week 13.
Wright gained 25 yards on his two receptions. While he fits the offense in the slot position for Chicago, Wright doesn't get enough targets to be a reliable fantasy option right now.
Kendall Wright catches two passes against the Eagles.
No one for Chicago could get much going in the Week 12 loss, and Wright gained only 15 yards on his two receptions. Wright isn't a recommended fantasy option next week against the Niners.
Kendall Wright caught two passes for 25 yards in Sunday's loss to Detroit.
Wright hasn't scored or recorded more than 46 yards since September. He's not a fantasy option against the Eagles in Week 12.
Kendall Wright caught five passes for 46 yards in Sunday's loss to the Packers.
Wright's receptions were the most since Week 2, as the Bears threw it 35 times against Green Bay. The slot receiver is just a PPR option in deeper leagues heading into a matchup with the Lions.
Kendall Wright gets eight targets against the Saints.
Wright's eight targets were a team high, but he couldn't get much going in the box score, catching two passes for 23 yards. Though it was possible he'd have some PPR value as the main slot guy for the Bears, a run-heavy offensive approach hasn't helped. Through eight games, the former Titan is on pace for 44 receptions, 518 yards, and two touchdowns.
Kendall Wright caught two passes for 36 yards in Sunday's win over the Ravens.
Wright was literally the only wide receiver to catch a pass as the Bears relied on the running game with just 16 passing attempts from Mitchell Trubisky. The slot receiver probably isn't getting enough targets to be worth rostering in fantasy leagues. He gets the Panthers in Week 7.
Kendall Wright leads Bears in receiving against the Vikings.
Wright caught four passes for 46 yards in the Bears' loss. He's the top receiver for Chicago right now, but he's currently not a recommended fantasy option in standard leagues.
Kendall Wright scores first touchdown as a Bear in Week 4 loss.
The former Titans receiver caught all four targets against the Packers, gaining 51 yards in the Thursday night game. The touchdown came on a corner route near the goal line, where he ran right through the defense for a wide-open score. Wright is the most reliable fantasy option at receiver for the Bears, but there are probably higher upside options for your fantasy lineup.
Kendall Wright leads Bears in receiving in Week 2.
Chicago's slot receiver received a team-high ten targets and caught seven of them for 69 yards. He'll be a FLEX option in PPR leagues in Week 3 against the Steelers.
Kendall Wright gets targeted four times in Week 1.
The Bears slot receiver caught three passes for 34 yards against the Falcons. With the potential season-ending injury to Kevin White, it could open up more targets for Wright. However, Markus Wheaton (finger) could be back in Week 2. Still, Wright is worth a look in PPR leagues as a potential number one receiver from the slot.
Kendall Wright catches three-of-five targets in Bears' third preseason game.
Wright had worked as the clear lead slot receiver over Victor Cruz once again, and had 35 yards on his three receptions. The former Titan played well against his former team in the exhibition, and he'll be one of Chicago's starters in Week 1. He could be in line for more targets after the unfortunate knee injury to Cameron Meredith. Wright has a chance to deliver solid PPR value this year.
Kendall Wright scores in exhibition game against the Cardinals.
Wright had two receptions for nine yards and a touchdown. The touchdown came on a four-yard out route from Mike Glennon. Wright is clearly the starting slot receiver for the Bears, and he could end up being a PPR asset this season.
Kendall Wright starts in the slot for Bears' first preseason game.
Wright played with starter Mike Glennon and appears to be clearly in the lead for the slot receiver job. He had one reception for 14 yards from Glennon. The Bears seem to be happy with the freelancing Wright in the slot, and he's probably ready to make an impact after he says the Titans didn't use him enough last year.
The Bears are signing receiver Kendall Wright, according to Adam Caplan.
It's a one-year deal worth up to $4 million, according to Caplan. Wright probably didn't like his market, so he'll try to have a good season to get a long-term deal after next season. Wright has a chance to be one of the top targets for Mike Glennon.
Wright catches four passes in Week 11.
He had four catches for 52 yards against the Colts. Like the rest of the Titans’ WRs, Wright has picked it up after a slow start to the year. Wright is an OK option at FLEX as long as Mariota is playing this well.
Kendall Wright catches touchdown in Titans' victory.
It was a six-yard score, and he finished with two catches for eight yards. The touchdown saved his day. Wright has some decent upside, but also a low floor. The Titans face the weak Colts defense this week, but Wright had just two catches for 12 yards in their last meeting. He's still worth a start in deeper leagues.
