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 he’s 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.
