Jarius Wright WR MIN 4 months ago

Wright had two catches for 21 yards on three targets in Sunday's win over Green Bay.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Wright finished off the regular season with 34 receptions for 442 yards and no touchdowns--all of which were slight drop-offs from his 2014 campaign. That said, his target total fell from 62 to 49 due in part to the additions of rookie Stefon Diggs and veteran deep threat Mike Wallace. In all, Wright had a fine year relative to his role, but serving as the third receiver in a run-heavy offense doesn't bode particularly well for his fantasy value in 2016.

Wright had three receptions for 57 yards and was targeted three times in Sunday's win over the Giants.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Wright led the Vikings in receiving yards, but Minnesota didn't need to throw the ball much after getting a large early lead. Wright has had five or more targets in just three games this season, so he'll continue to have a secondary role in the passing game.

Wright had a season-high five receptions for 51 yards on six targets, but lost a fumble in Thursday's loss to Arizona.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Minnesota's passing game showed surprising signs of life after struggling last week, and Wright tied for the team lead in targets. Still, Wright has had five or more targets in just three games this season, so don't expect this every week as the team's third receiver.

Wright had two receptions for 24 yards on two targets in Sunday's loss to Seattle.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Minnesota's passing game couldn't get into gear Sunday amid protection issues in the offensive line. Wright doesn't get enough looks for viable fantasy value in most formats, but he's capable of a big play.

Jarius Wright WR MIN 5 months ago

Wright had two receptions for 13 yards and was targeted just two times in Sunday's win at Atlanta.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Wright isn't going to get many targets as the third receiver when Minnesota's running game is clicking, and Adrian Peterson had 158 yards rushing Sunday.

Jarius Wright WR MIN 5 months ago

Wright had four receptions for 50 yards and was targeted five times in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Wright got more targets than usual with the Vikings falling behind early. He also got more targets than Mike Wallace and it's possible Wright could get more touches if Wallace continues to struggle. Still, Wright doesn't get enough looks for viable fantasy value in most formats, but he's capable of a big play.

Jarius Wright WR MIN 6 months ago

Wright had just one reception for two yards on two targets in Sunday's win at Oakland.

Competitive Edge Analysis

With Adrian Peterson rushing for 203 yards, the Vikings didn't utilize the passing game as much as Teddy Bridgewater had just 22 attempts. Wright, as the No. 3 receiver, won't get more than a few targets if the Vikings are having success running the ball and playing with a lead.

Wright had one reception for 12 yards and was targeted three times in Sunday's win over St. Louis.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Wright suffered a concussion just last weekend, but was at full speed during the game. His 20.1 YPC in 2015 is pleasing to the eye, but his usage is too minimal behind Mike Wallace and Stefon Diggs to trust in most formats.

Wright (concussion) is active Sunday against the Bears.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Wright suffered a concussion just last weekend, but he returned to practice Thursday, clearing the way for his return. That being said, the Vikings focus heavily on the run, making their No. 3 wideout a limited fantasy option.

Wright (concussion) is listed as probable for Sunday's game in Chicago, ESPN's Ben Goessling reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Wright made a quick recovery from his Week 7 concussion, returning to a full practice Thursday. As the No. 3 wide receiver in a run-heavy offense, he's unsurprisingly averaging just 3.2 targets per game.
