The Rams are loaded in the front seven, but their secondary still has some question marks. I think Patterson has high WR3 appeal in a good matchup. The Rams ranked 14th against fantasy receivers last year.
The Chiefs defense ranked just 18th against fantasy receivers last year, I think Wright has a big game to open the season.

I'm a C-Patt believer. Whether he catches, runs or returns, you're getting value out of him this week.
Wright mostly carries PPR upside but he's a burner who can make plays. Chiefs can be beat in the air, too

It's very likely that he won't have time against the Rams to get to the 2nd-level, so his production is going to have to come from quick hitters that will allow him to do some work in space.
