Patriots | Rob Gronkowski plays in all snaps

Mon, 22 Dec 2014 15:21:39 -0800

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski played in all 61 of the team's offensive snaps in Week 16 against the New York Jets, showing that he is completely healthy at season's end. TE Tim Wright played in only seven snaps in the first half compared to 25 in the second half with the team going to a faster tempo on offense.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski ($5,555) may not be the safest play at FantasyScore in Week 17 against the Buffalo Bills defense. The Patriots may also have everything locked up for homefield advantage, too, so Gronk could be rested. Be careful here.

Patriots | Tim Wright catches nearly everything

Wed, 26 Nov 2014 07:39:51 -0800

New England Patriots TE Tim Wright has 23 catches on 26 targets this season. "Every time we throw to him it's a touchdown - we'll try to find him more down there," QB Tom Brady said after Wright's two-touchdown performance in Week 12. "He does a great job in the coverage and finds the open spots."

Fantasy Tip: Wright ($5,200; 10.4% of your cap) is very much a boom-or-bust selection on FantasyScore.

Patriots | Tim Wright sees extensive action

Sun, 23 Nov 2014 15:47:01 -0800

New England Patriots TE Tim Wright played a season-high 60 snaps in Week 12 against the Detroit Lions, which shattered his previous best of 21 snaps, which he hit twice. He finished with five receptions for 36 yards and two touchdowns.

Fantasy Tip: Anyone who took a chance on Wright in FantasyScore were tremendously pleased by his amazing output, while those who spent on Rob Gronkowski were less than thrilled with the distribution.

Patriots | Tim Wright sees minute time

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 08:22:15 -0700

New England Patriots TE Tim Wright played just 16 of 74 offensive snaps in Week 6 Sunday, Oct. 12.

Fantasy Tip: Wright was expected to have a bigger role after a good Week 5 game. Rob Gronkowski has become a bigger part of the offense, but Wright will still be worth consideration on FantasyScore in good matchups.

Patriots | Want to grow Tim Wright's role

Fri, 10 Oct 2014 19:05:11 -0700

New England Patriots TE Tim Wright took on a bigger role in the pass game in Week 5 against the Cincinnati Bengals, and the team wants to continue to increase Wright's role.

Fantasy Tip: Wright will set you back just $3400 (or 6.8 percent of the cap) in FantasyScore leagues. At this point, you are getting what you are paying for, but if Rob Gronkowski suffers any type of injury setback, or Wright does in fact see a few more targets, Wright would be worth using in most fantasy formats.

Patriots | Tim Wright played limited snaps

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 15:19:51 -0700

New England Patriots TE Tim Wright, who had five catches for 85 yards and a touchdown in Week 5, played just 19 of 84 offensive snaps against the Cincinnati Bengals Sunday night.

Fantasy Tip: Wright clearly made the most of his limited opportunities against Cincy. Take that into account if you're looking for an under-the-radar tight end option for Week 6. It's unlikely that Wright can match those numbers if he continues to have limited snaps.

Patriots | Tim Wright could see more time

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 16:46:17 -0700

New England Patriots TE Tim Wright could see extended playing time in Week 4 against the Kansas City Chiefs Monday, Sept. 29.

Fantasy Tip: Wright could see another target or two, as the Patriots try to force the Kansas City linebackers into more coverage and less rush defense, but it is not enough to make Wright fantasy relevant at this time.

Patriots | Tim Wright debuts

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 07:58:26 -0700

New England Patriots TE Tim Wright caught four passes for 43 yards in roughly one half of action in the final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28. It was his first game with his new team.

Fantasy Tip: Wright is an intriguing sleeper if he can learn the offense quickly. He's not worth drafting right now, but he could rise up the fringe of waiver possibilities as the season progresses.

Patriots | Tim Wright to play

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 13:48:00 -0700

New England Patriots TE Timothy Wright is expected to play Thursday, Aug. 28, against the New York Giants after recently being acquired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Wright is expected to fill the role Aaron Hernandez played and is worth a flier in deeper leagues. As Rob Gronkowski's backup, Wright could gain even more value considering Gronkowski's injury history.

Wed, 27 Aug 2014 19:19:25 -0700

The New England Patriots really like TE Timothy Wright, acquired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers for OL Logan Mankins. NFL.com's Ian Rapoport even considers him as the team's "new" Aaron Hernandez, or complement to TE Rob Gronkowski.
