Lions | Tim Wright headed to Detroit

Mon, 31 Aug 2015 06:29:08 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Tim Wright was acquired by the Detroit Lions Monday, Aug. 31, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Wright is a good receiver, but he has Brandon Pettigrew and Eric Ebron ahead of him. Pettigrew will be in there for his blocking and Ebron can be an upper echelon receiver. Wright probably will be an in-season waiver claim unless one of them goes down.

Buccaneers | Tim Wright claimed by TB

Fri, 12 Jun 2015 13:24:41 -0700

New England Patriots TE Tim Wright was claimed off waivers by the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Friday, June 12.

Fantasy Tip: Wright could see playing time at tight end with Austin Seferian-Jenkins during the season. Wright should have a role in the passing game and could be a No. 2 tight end in some leagues this season.

Patriots | Tim Wright released

Thu, 11 Jun 2015 06:56:57 -0700

New England Patriots TE Tim Wright was released Thursday, June 11.

Fantasy Tip: Wright had six touchdowns last season and was a solid matchup play the second half of the season. Could this open up a lane for Fred Davis? He still has Michael Hoomanawanui and Scott Chandler ahead of him, but releasing Wright is a curious move that leads us to believe they have plans for someone else.

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.
