Fantasy Football Outlook: The first-round pick out of Baylor had a promising rookie season but it is a little concerning that he posted under 10 yards per catch. That should change as Wright role in the Titans offense will expand and hopefully we will see Jake Locker take another step in his progress as the possible future at quarterback for the franchise.
While Wright’s stats should improve over his rookie year I’m not sure he will be more than a matchup play for most of the year, if Kenny Britt finally shows up in a contract year.
Expect Britt to move on after this season and Wright should emerge as a WR2 in his third season. That’s a year away but I like where Wright is going in early ADP trends as the 59th receiver off the board. Plenty of value with this receiver at that point in your redraft league and he’s a player to hold onto unless you get a ridiculous offer in a dynasty league.
Unless things change via injury to a fellow receiver like Britt this summer, Wright can be had as a depth receiver on your team, but could emerge as a WR3 or flex play. At worst he should be a solid bye week fill in or a spot starter if you have injury problems to your normal starters.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projection
While Kendall Wright will be a contributor in the Titans offense, I’m not in love with his prospects for fantasy stardom, early on. Kenny Britt is likely to return from his ACL injury, and Wright will probably spend most of the year as the slot receiver.
That’s not a bad thing in today’s game, but it remains to be seen how often the Titans will use a three or four receiver set, weekly.
We also don’t know if Matt Hasselbeck remains as the starter and when Jake Locker gets his chance to take over.
Wright will make big plays in this offense, and he’s worth holding as a backup to being the year in redraft leagues. Until further notice Wright should be targeted no higher than your WR5 this summer. For dynasty rookie drafts, Wright is a clear first round pick and should develop into a WR2 in the coming years.
