Kendall Wright working to break more tackles

The Tennessean - [Full Article]

"I am not satisfied," Titans WR Kendall Wright said. "I know I am a better football player and I have room to get better. I can easily do a whole lot better."

Specifically, he wants to break a lot more tackles. He feels like if he'd been more slippery, his yardage total could have been even more staggering on his 94 catches, which ranked seventh in the NFL.

"Some of the short passes that I caught, I maybe let the first person tackle me," Wright said. "I have to break that tackle and get way more yards than I did. And that is what I am working on — my explosiveness. It is great to get 1,000 yards. But I want to do a whole lot more after the catch. I need to make more guys miss."

Fantasy Impact: 

Wright caught 94 passes for 1,079 yards, but only found the endzone twice. He’s not likely to become a major force in the redzone, though new HC Ken Whisenhunt had success around the goal line with a similar player (Eddie Royal) in San Diego. Royal scored six of his eight TDs from inside the 15-yard line (typically on quick screens), so Whisenhunt may elect to use Wright in the same way.
