|The Titans used a 1st round pick to acquire Wright and the plan is for the Baylor product to step into the slot role on opening day. Highly productive in college with over 4,000 receiving yards in his career and 14 touchdowns in 2011, Wright is known for his shiftiness and ability to make tacklers miss in the open field. A less than stellar 40-yard dash time at the combine caused his draft stock to fall but he improved on his time at his pro day. In Tennessee, Wright figures to be 4th in the receiving pecking order behind Kenny Britt, Nate Washington and Jared Cook and that doesn’t bode well for his fantasy prospects in 2012. He is worth nothing more than a late round flier in redraft leagues but is a solid prospect in dynasty leagues, especially those that employ the PPR scoring system.
| Cooper, De'Anthony Thomas injured at practice -- Thu Sep 4 12:30 pm --|
Chiefs may be without starting corner and key returner
|The Chiefs could be without two key players in Sunday’s season opener against the Tennessee Titans.
Starting cornerback Marcus Cooper suffered an ankle injury and rookie running back/punt returner De’Anthony Thomas strained a hamstring late in Wednesday’s practice, coach Andy Reid said on Thursday morning.
Neither player was expected to practice on Thursday. (Kansas City Star)|
FF Today's Take: The Chiefs have had a slew of injury issues this preseason and can't afford to lose yet another key piece in the secondary. If Cooper is out, there may be some hidden gems for fantasy owners in the Titans passing game this week. Kendall Wright, Nate Washington and Justin Hunter would get a bump in value.
