Scouting report

CHI WR Kendall Wright - Week 5 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 5 vs. Minnesota Vikings

Kendall Wright went 4-for-4 (hey, that's us!) catching his targets last week, finishing with 51 yards and a touchdown. Wright has been surprisingly useful this season, leading the Bears in receiving yards (154). But while he's performed better than we'd thought, he's still only slightly relevant in fantasy.

It's also worth noting Wright will have a new quarterback throwing to him this week, so it's hard to know if Mitchell Trubisky will like him as much as Mike Glennon. In any case, Wright could struggle this week as the No. 1 receiver matching up against Xavier Rhodes. Wright doesn't carry much value and is a low-end WR4 option.

CHI WR Kendall Wright - Week 4 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 4 at Green Bay Packers

After a decent Week 2 performance, Kendall Wright didn't record a single catch in Week 3. In fact, the Bears receiving corps as a whole only had 1 catch for 9 yards in Week 3. So far this season, Bears receivers as a unit are averaging about 14 targets, 9 receptions, and 98 yards per game. In other words, pretty much no receiver is worth trusting in this offense.

CHI WR Kendall Wright - Week 3 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 3 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Kendall Wright is the Bears' top receiving option after a pair of injuries, and he benefited from that role last week. He saw a team-high 10 targets and hauled in 7 receptions for 69 yards. Not bad in a PPR format, but doesn't do a whole lot in standard leagues.

Markus Wheaton could make his Bears debut this week, which would likely take away some of Wright's targets. It's hard to like any receiver in this offense, which is why Wright is nothing more than a low-end WR4 option against Pittsburgh.

CHI WR Kendall Wright - Week 2 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 2 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Kendall Wright has suddenly been forced into being a starting receiver after the Bears lost Cameron Meredith and Kevin White. He didn't do a whole lot in Week 1 as a starting wideout, catching 3 passes (on 4 targets) for 34 yards.

You might think that because Wright is the No. 1 receiver in this offense that he must be worth a pickup because of the opportunity. But we don't expect Wright to have much value in fantasy. He'll have a few moments throughout the season, but likely won't be a consistent option worth playing.

Wright should be viewed as a WR5 with limited upside.

CHI WR Kendall Wright - Week 1 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 1 vs. Atlanta Falcons

Kendall Wright joins the Bears after playing five seasons in Tennessee. He's shown promise as a professional, including a 1,000-yard season in 2013. For various reasons (injury, depth), Wright hasn't been able to achieve that magic again. He should, however, find some more success in Chicago.

Wright suddenly gets put into a starting role following the injury to Cameron Meredith, and he opens the season with a decent matchup against the Falcons. We don't trust Mike Glennon much in this offense, though, so proceed with caution. Wright should be viewed as a WR4 with limited upside.

TEN WR Kendall Wright - Week 12, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 12 at Chicago
Wright had four receptions for 52 yards last week but was on the field for just over half of Tennessee's offensive snaps. He has some potential against a soft Chicago WR defense, but his usage is an issue. Use him as nothing more than a flex play.

TEN WR Kendall Wright - Week 11, 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Indianapolis
Wright scored for the third time in six games last week, but had just two receptions for eight yards in an otherwise quiet game. It's looking like TD or bust for Wright, who had two receptions for 12 yards just a few weeks ago against Indianapolis. Take a pass here as anything more than a flex play.
