Kendall Wright signs one-year deal with Vikings

After a single season in Chicago, former first-round wide receiver Kendall Wright will stay in the NFC North after signing a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings. Wright should take over slot duties for the new-look Minnesota passing attack and is a considerable upgrade from Jarius Wright.

Fantasy Impact

The presence of Kirk Cousins should assure there will be plenty of passed thrown in Minnesota this season, but Wright could struggle to match last season's 59 grabs as he's, at best, fifth in-line for touches behind Adam Thielen, Stefon Diggs, Kyle Rudolph, and Dalvin Cook. Wright spent some of 2017 as Chicago's WR1 but he won't be afforded the same opportunity in a stacked Vikings offense. Still, he could be worth a late look in PPR leagues that have expanded rosters.

Kendall Wright with five catches in season finale

Kendall Wright caught five of his eight targets for just 29 yards on Sunday against the Vikings.

Fantasy Impact

Wright was briefly relevant in fantasy leagues but for the most part fell outside of the WR3 discussion. An unrestricted free agent, Wright will hopefully find himself in a better spot next year, on a team that will better use his talents.

Kendall Wright totals 27 yards against the Browns

Kendall Wright caught four of six targets for 27 yards against the Browns.

Fantasy Impact

It was a disappointing game for Wright after his big previous two games, but it's hard to put too much blame on him in the poor weather. Wright will be a low-end option, likely out of the starting range, next weekend against Minnesota.

Kendall Wright surpasses 100 receiving yards on Sunday

Kendall Wright finished Sunday's game against the Cincinnati Bengals with 10 catches for 107 yards.

Fantasy Impact

Wright finally had a good game on Sunday to what has been a disappointing season. He is worth a deep flex option for fantasy leagues as he seems to be quarterback Mitchell Trubisky's favorite receiving option.
