Kendall Wright could be weekly inactive

Kendall Wright isn't considered a special teams option for the Vikings which could force him to be a gameday inactive according to Vikings coach Mike Zimmer.

Fantasy Impact

Wright is battling for the third WR slot in the Vikings offense along with Laquon Treadwell. Treadwell has been performing well in camp. If Wright doesn't earn the third WR spot he will not be worth fantasy consideration and could even potentially not make the roster.

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.

Fantasy Impact

Wright has finally put together a string of solid performances over the span of a few games. As the fantasy playoffs wind down, consider Wright a WR3 option.
