|The Titans invested a first-round pick in Kendall Wright two years ago and they are already seeing dividends. In the 2013 season, Wright notched his first 1,000-yard season and ended up just six catches short of the century mark. This year, fantasy owners will not want to sleep on Wright. A player who will be labeled short on touchdown potential on a run-first team, Wright stands to make the most gains in the new offensive system considering the passing game ranked 20th or worse in passing yards and touchdowns. More efficiency should equate to more overall production for the top targets. Furthermore, the team did well in using the short yardage passing game. Those attributes not only suit Wright's game extremely well, but also are the backbone for success in any West Coast playbook. Wright spent part of the offseason working with Robert Griffin III in preparation of taking his game to an even higher level for 2014. One of only a few receivers with a realistic shot at 100 receptions; Wright is only a few touchdown receptions away from being a solid WR2 in PPR leagues. In every other format, Wright becomes an attractive investment in the middle rounds as one of the better WR3 upside plays.

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)|
FFToday'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.
