Detroit Lions TE Tim Wright (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Tuesday, May 31, with a torn anterior cruciate ligament.
Thu, 26 May 2016 14:11:09 -0700
Detroit Lions TE Tim Wright (undisclosed) was waived/injured Thursday, May 26.
Fantasy Tip: Wright would have been playing behind Eric Ebron and Brandon Pettigrew anyway. Ebron is worth a look as a low-end TE1 to high-end WR2 as he could see a good share of Calvin Johnson's leftover targets.
Mon, 14 Mar 2016 09:44:52 -0700
Detroit Lions TE Tim Wright re-signed an undisclosed deal with the Lions Monday, March 14.
Sun, 03 Jan 2016 19:58:25 -0800
Detroit Lions TEs Eric Ebron and Tim Wright each found the end zone in the Week 17 game against the Chicago Bears. Ebron finished with five grabs for 25 yards and the TD, and Wright had a nine-yard reception for score.
Fantasy Tip: Ebron emerged as a decent fantasy option at times this season, posting a total of five touchdowns with 537 receiving yards. Depending on personnel moves and Brandon Pettigrew's health and contract status, Ebron could take another step forward in 2015. Wright is simply used for depth and has little to no fantasy appeal.
Sun, 13 Dec 2015 08:49:57 -0800
The Detroit Lions have declared CB Bill Bentley, OT Corey Robinson, DL Gabe Wright, DL Jermelle Cudjo, OT LaAdrian Waddle, WR Lance Moore, TE Tim Wright inactive for Week 14.
Thu, 03 Dec 2015 16:10:03 -0800

Thu, 26 Nov 2015 08:23:42 -0800
The Detroit Lions have declared OT Corey Robinson, DL Gabe Wright, S Isaiah Johnson, DL Jermelle Cudjo, OT LaAdrian Waddle, WR T.J. Jones, TE Tim Wright inactive for Week 12.
Fantasy Tip: Calvin Johnson (ankle) is active against the Philadelphia Eagles. Megatron ($7,100, 14.2% of cap) is a high-end WR2 consideration with a very good matchup on FantasyScore.
Sun, 22 Nov 2015 08:58:14 -0800
The Detroit Lions have declared OT Corey Robinson, DL Gabe Wright, S Isaiah Johnson, DL Jermelle Cudjo, OT LaAdrian Waddle, WR T.J. Jones, TE Tim Wright inactive for Week 11.
Sun, 15 Nov 2015 08:52:17 -0800
The Detroit Lions have declared OT Corey Robinson, OT Cornelius Lucas, DL Jermelle Cudjo, DL Khyri Thornton, WR T.J. Jones, TE Tim Wright, LB Travis Lewis inactive for Week 10.
Sun, 01 Nov 2015 05:03:34 -0800
The Detroit Lions have declared OT Corey Robinson, LB DeAndre Levy, DL Gabe Wright, DL Khyri Thornton, CB Rashean Mathis, WR T.J. Jones, TE Tim Wright inactive for Week 8.
Mon, 05 Oct 2015 21:43:24 -0700
Detroit Lions TE Tim Wright took over as the primary tight end in Week 4 against the Seattle Seahawks Monday, Oct. 5, after TE Eric Ebron (knee) left with an injury. Wright had a 26-yard reception on his only catch. He was targeted twice.
Fantasy Tip: Wright ($1,700, 3.4% of cap) could be forced into the starting lineup if Ebron is forced to miss time and Brandon Pettigrew remains sidelined.
Sun, 13 Sep 2015 11:56:41 -0700
The Detroit Lions have declared DL Caraun Reid, LB DeAndre Levy, OT LaAdrian Waddle, OG Larry Warford, CB Nevin Lawson, WR T.J. Jones, TE Tim Wright inactive for Week 1.
Thu, 03 Sep 2015 18:14:53 -0700
Detroit Lions TE Joseph Fauria could be left off the final 53-man roster in favor of TE Tim Wright.
Thu, 03 Sep 2015 06:21:39 -0700
Detroit Lions TE Tim Wright and TE Joseph Fauria are likely competing for one roster spot in the final preseason game Thursday, Sept. 3.
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.
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.
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.
Sun, 28 Dec 2014 08:45:40 -0800
New England Patriots TE Tim Wright should see more action Sunday, Dec. 28, with TE Rob Gronkowski inactive.
Fantasy Tip: Tim Wright is worth a flyer as a low-end TE1 on FantasyScore today.
Sat, 27 Dec 2014 13:39:25 -0800
New England Patriots TE Tim Wright could see more playing time Sunday, Dec. 28, as beat writer Ben Volin believes TE Rob Gronkowski is unlikely to play much.
Fantasy Tip: Wright makes a low-end TE1 on FantasyScore this week against the Buffalo Bills.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Tue, 26 Aug 2014 15:30:48 -0700
New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) has not encountered any setbacks from the end of last week, and the acquisition of TE Timothy Wright is not a sign that the team is concerned about Gronkowski's health. The Patriots have wanted to remain cautious with Gronkowski's workload this preseason. Wright is a "move" tight end, similar to the role free-agent TE Aaron Hernandez used to play with the team.
Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski remains a fine risk as a TE1, as long as he stays healthy. As Wesseling mentions, Wright won't ever take the place of Gronkowski in blocking situations, but he could be useful as a TE2, especially if Gronk is limited at all early in the season.
Tue, 26 Aug 2014 10:44:20 -0700
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers agreed to the parameters of a trade to acquire OG Logan Mankins (Patriots) in exchange for TE Timothy Wright and an undisclosed draft pick Tuesday, Aug. 26.
Tue, 26 Aug 2014 10:43:01 -0700
The New England Patriots acquired TE Timothy Wright and an undisclosed draft pick from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for OG Logan Mankins.
Sun, 17 Aug 2014 19:23:46 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Timothy Wright has been struggling with his catching and blocking during practice, according to head coach Lovie Smith. "He's dropped some balls. If you watched practice, he's dropped balls. But he's a big part of what we want to do with the two-receiver, two-tight-end set. Tim hasn't blocked as well inside. Once you're that H-back and you don't block, now they say you're just another receiver and teams start going nickel. If they do that at least you have to be a good pass catcher. Tim's a good player. He just hasn't played as well as he needs to lately," Smith said. Wright may have to compete with TE Luke Stocker for a roster spot if he does not improve his play.
Fri, 20 Jun 2014 13:23:56 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins may not receive much playing time in the short term, although he's likely to be the team's long-term answer at the position. He will not take part in the team's offseason program, which could put him behind in the competition, and TEs Brandon Myers, Timothy Wright and Luke Stocker all have more experience.
Fantasy Tip: Wright made nice strides last season in this offense, but remember, Lovie Smith is now head coach, and tight ends have never been a big part of his offenses. If anything, the tight ends on roster will give Josh McCown a nice red zone option. Seferian-Jenkins is an intriguing player, but don't overspend on him as your TE2.
Fri, 13 Jun 2014 10:42:17 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Timothy Wright could have a big role in the offense despite the offseason additions of TEs Brandon Myers and Austin Seferian-Jenkins, according to head coach Lovie Smith. Smith said that he has "big plans" for Wright this year.
Fantasy Tip: Wright was a surprise in his rookie season as a nice red zone target for Mike Glennon. However, Glennon won't be the starter and tight ends have never been heavily utilized in a Smith-run offense. Wright shouldn't be drafted as anything more than a midrange TE2.
Tue, 22 Apr 2014 10:28:37 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Timothy Wright said he may see time at wide receiver this year in some formations. Wright last played wide receiver in college.
Sun, 24 Nov 2013 15:11:07 -0800
Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Mike Glennon completed 14 of his 21 pass attempts for 247 yards and two touchdowns in the Week 12 game against the Detroit Lions. He finished with a season-high 138.4 quarterback rating. "He's very calm in the huddle, no matter what the situation is in the game," TE Timothy Wright said Sunday, Nov. 24.
Fri, 25 Oct 2013 16:14:05 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers WR Mike Williams (hamstring) said he is dealing with a torn hamstring.
Fantasy Tip: Williams likely will miss some playing time but owners should wait until a timetable is given until they consider dropping him. If he does miss a significant amount of time, Tiquan Underwood and Timothy Wright likely will gain more fantasy value and could be targets if available in leagues.
Wed, 16 Oct 2013 14:15:25 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Timothy Wright, a former undrafted wide receiver, has chemistry with rookie QB Mike Glennon, and it showed in Wright's start in Week 6 when he had seven catches for 91 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles. "We came in together as rookies and we spent a lot of time during the offseason throwing routes on air and getting that timing down, that connection," said Wright. "You never thought, down this line, that we'd be the two hooking up together at this point, but it happened, and it's starting to show for us." Wright caught four of his seven passes on third downs, and they all resulted in moving the chains.
Fantasy Tip: Even though Wright is currently still behind Tom Crabtree on the depth chart, he has much more upside as a pass-catching tight end. Rookie QBs often rely on their tight ends often, too, making Wright a sleeper moving forward.
Tue, 15 Oct 2013 09:27:34 -0700
Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Timothy Wright had seven catches for 91 yards in Week 6, and he has become a dependable target for QB Mike Glennon. Four of his catches were on third down and moved the chains.
Fantasy Tip: He's still behind Tom Crabtree on the depth chart, but he could emerge as a sleeper for a bye-week fill-in.
Sat, 27 Apr 2013 19:44:52 -0700
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers signed undrafted free agents TE Evan Landi (South Florida) and WR Tim Wright (Rutgers) Saturday, April 27.
