Kendall Wright's number are down from last year, and he realizes it. Despite leading the team in catches and being number two in receiving yards, he's far off of last season's pace. He's currently on track to have 322 fewer yards and 25 fewer catches than in 2013. "Any receiver would like more opportunities. But it is not my job to say anything to the coaches," Wright said. "If I could get more opportunities, I definitely would take them. I just want to do whatever I can to help." (Source: The Tennessean)

Fantasy Impact: It's not really all Wright's fault; he only has one drop on the entire year. Tennessee's tumultuous (to say the least) situation at quarterback has had a lot to do with it. He's still tops on the team in terms of targets, but isn't breaking off as many big plays as he did in the past. This has led to disappointment to fantasy owners, as someone who may've even been on the cusp of high-end WR2 status is now barely a reliable WR3.

Wright made four catches for 70 yards in Tennessee's Monday night game against Pittsburgh.

Fantasy Impact: Wright's been on a bit of an upswing ever since Zach Mettenberger took over at QB; that continued today, though he wasn't able to get in on either of Mettenberger's touchdown throws. He didn't really make any huge plays today (his longest catch was for 23 yards) but was there when Mettenberger needed him. For now, he looks to be a fairly reliable, but unlikely to star, WR3 option.

WR Kendall Wright had 3 receptions for 53 yards in the 30-16 loss to the Texans. His fourth-quarter 48-yard catch and run was the longest reception for the Titans.

Fantasy Impact: Wright had a relatively quiet day for the Titans until his big catch late in the game. It's yet to be seen how he will do with rookie QB Zach Mettenberger starting for the Titans, but the rookie could bring new life to the Titans passing attack. Wright has been up and down so far this season. He is worth watching now that he has Mettenberger throwing him the ball. He is still considered a good WR3 option.

WR Kendall Wright had 6 catches for 68 yards and one touchdown against the Redskins. Wright led the Titans in receptions and receiving yardage.

Fantasy Impact: Wright was back to being the go-to-guy in critical situations for the Titans in Sunday's contest. He converted three third-downs and made a great move on his 14 yard touchdown reception. He looked more like the Kendall Wright of 2013 with the added bonus of getting in the end zone. Wright hasn't been as consistent this season, but he already has double the amount of touchdowns he had last season. Expect Wright's production to continue, especially if QB Jake Locker comes back.

WR Kendall Wright only had one target and one catch for six yards against the Jaguars.

Fantasy Impact: Wright frustrates fantasy owners by basically doing nothing after his first multiple touchdown game of his career. Consistency seems to be a problem for many of the Titans players with the exception of TE Delanie Walker. Don't feel bad if you played Wright, he probably burned many fantasy owners since he was coming off one of the best games of his career and facing a bad Jaguars team. Hopefully he can bounce back next week against the Redskins next week.

WR Kendall Wright had the first two-touchdown game of his three-year NFL career in a 29-28 home loss to the Browns. He led the Titans with 8 targets and 6 receptions in LP Field on Sunday. He also totaled 90 yards for the game, 47 yards receiving and 43 yards rushing on two carries.

Fantasy Impact: The biggest knocks on Kendall Wright are his lack of big plays and his inability to score touchdowns. On Sunday he proved he is capable of both after gaining 38 yards on a jet sweep carry and reaching the end zone twice. He still can't be trusted as an every week starter, but he could be a matchup type player if you don't have strong WRs. He could be a good play this week as he faces a struggling Jacksonville Jaguars team.

WR Kendall Wright had three catches for 31 yards in the home opener. He was targeted 5 times during the game.

Fantasy Impact: Wright wasn't utilized like he usually is in the passing offense. Instead the majority of targets went to TE Delanie Walker. Wright is still a focal point in the Titans offense, and should bouce back fine next week. He is a solid WR3 and can be used without hesitation if needed.

Kendall Wright had six receptions for 46 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Chiefs. His six receptions led the team on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Wright is still Locker's favorite target in pressure situations. He made a great dive for the pylon on his touchdown grab. Wright isn't a threat to go deep, but he consistently catches short passes for first downs. He figures to be a perfect fit in Whisenhunt's offense, making him a solid WR3.

ESPN's Titans reporter Paul Kuharsky named Wright "the Titans' best player right now, by a good margin." Kuharsky continued by saying: "He’s caught everything thrown to him, by whichever quarterback, over whichever defender, against whatever coverage." (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: With the Justin Hunter hype picking up around the fantasy community, this is an important reminder that Wright will be Jake Locker's #1 target in 2014. Wright, by all accounts, has looked great this offseason and appears ready to build on the 94 catch, 1,079 yard season he put together in 2013.

Joe Fann reports WR Kendall Wright is performing at a high level this training camp. QB Jake Locker said Wright is "explosive" and "dynamic". HC Ken Whisenhunt also praised the 3rd year wideout. (Source:

Fantasy Impact: The biggest concern with Wright is the lack of a proven backup QB should Locker suffer an injury once again. If Locker can stay healthy, expect Wright to put up career bests under Whisenhunt's system.

Titans' beat writer Jim Wyatt projects Kendall Wright to have 88 receptions, 1360 receiving yards, and 8 touchdowns for this upcoming season. (Source: The Tennessean)

Fantasy Impact: Of course, this is a very optimistic projection for Wright, but it is not as farfetched as it might initially appear. In his sophomore season, Wright finished the year with 94 receptions and 1079 receiving yards. Entering his third year in the league, Wright is a prime breakout candidate, as he is a perfect fit for Ken Whisenhunt's spread quick-rhythm offense.
