Timothy Wright will see an increase in snaps in Week 17 vs. the Bills as Rob Gronkowski has been tagged as a healthy scratch.
Fantasy Impact: Wright will see the most snaps this week in his Patriot career to date. Most likely seeing work from Jimmy Garoppolo as the Patriots are resting some of their starters with the #1 seed already locked up!

Fantasy Impact: Wright now has only had 1 reception the last 2 weeks for the Patriots. Wright an ever popular red zone target for Tom Brady was not looked upon in Week 14. The ultimate boom or bust option for the Patriots should not be on your radar for the fantasy playoffs.
Patriot's tight end Tim Wright hauled in 5-of-6 targets for 36 yards and two touchdowns in the team's Week 12 win over the Lions.
Fantasy Impact: Wright has legit talent, but it's impossible to know how the Patriot's will use him moving forward. He is too boom-or-bust to be relied upon every week, but is in the TE1 conversation depending on usage.
Patriot's tight end Tim Wright caught 7-of-7 targets for 61 yards and a touchdown in the team's Week 8 win over the Bears.
Fantasy Impact: On a day when the Patriot's offense could not be stopped, Wright reached new season-highs for catches and targets. Although the Patriot's are utilizing more two-TE sets, Wrights usage is too hit-and-miss for him to be anything more than a boom-or-must TE2 with legit TE1 upside.
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.
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 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.
