|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.
| Kendall Wright questionable for Week 14 -- Thu Dec 4 6:55 pm --|
Suffered cracked bone in hand; day-to-day
|Already without Justin Hunter, out for the year with a lacerated spleen, the Titans are now dealing with an injury to Kendall Wright. The team’s top wide receiver suffered a hand injury when he slipped at practice Wednesday and did not practice Thursday.
“He finished practice [Wednesday] and today he came in and it was sore and we just gave him the day off because I didn’t want him trying to catch a ball and aggravating it,” coach Ken Whisenhunt said. “It’s going to depend on how much better it gets tomorrow.” (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Wright is coming off his best game of the year and could still be a solid WR3 play - especially in PPR leagues - He should be a target hog following the loss of Hunter, but this is shaping up to be a game-time decision. If Wright sits, downgrade Zach Mettenberger and upgrade Nate Washington and Delanie Walker, each of whom will likely get flooded with targets.
