Patriots TE Tim Wright hauled in 3-of-3 targets for 15 yards in the Patriot's Week 1 game against the Dolphins.
Fantasy Impact: It's nice to see Wright haul in all of his targets, but it's hard to gauge his value, especially in a game where the offense struggled and Tom Brady tossed 55 passes. He's worth keeping an eye on, but for the time being he's a risky TE2.

New England Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels added that newly acquired TE Tim Wright is "working hard" and "certainly a bright kid." (Source: WEEI
Fantasy Impact: Wright will definitely get some looks as a pass-catching, "move" tight end in the Patriots' scheme. Until we see how the situation plays out, however, he's a risky TE2.

Newly acquired TE Tim Wright hauled in 4-of-6 for 43 yards from starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo.
Fantasy Impact: The Patrtiot's first-teamers didn't play, but Wright worked with QB Jimmy Garoppolo and the rest of the game's starters. He operated as the "move" TE, and has a great opportunity to compliment Rob Gronkowski this year in the Pat's passing attack.

Tampa's glut at tight end was addressed by trading Tim Wright to the Patriots. It was fairly clear that the new regime wasn't completely sold on Wright. They brought in Brandon Myers in free agency and used a fairly high pick to grab Austin Sefarian-Jenkins in the draft. Still Wright had a productive rookie year in Tampa catching 54 passes for 571 yards and 5 TD's. (Source: Pro Football Talk
Fantasy Impact: Wright could be used in two tight end sets with Gronkowski and also for depth if (when) Gronk gets hurt again. He should be able to put together another season with similar receiving numbers, with a potential to be a good sleeper if Gronk misses a lot of time.

Offensive Coordinator Jeff Tedford suggested that Tim Wright may end up in the slot often this season. "He can do a lot of things as a receiver and heβs done a nice job in the slot," Tedford said. (Source: Tampa Tribune
Fantasy Impact: This is nothing new for Wright. He played in the slot often in his rookie season. However, with very little competition for the 3rd string wide receiver spot, if Wright were to see significant time in the slot he could posses value at the tight end position. Monitor the situation as the preseason progresses. Wright may be worth a late flier if Tampa uses him as their WR3.

Okay, full disclosure I'm a Patriots fan and have been for a long time. The first professional sports team I can remember caring about was the Pats. My father had molded me into a football fan from an early age. The problem was the Patriots were terrible and a lot of their games would be blacked out. Even though I grew up 25 miles from Foxborough, I rarely saw a televised home game. Instead I fil...
