Jarius Wright WR MIN 5 Days
Wright (hamstring) is listed as active Sunday versus the Packers.
Wright built up to a full showing by Friday's practice, meaning his hamstring issue is likely less of a concern than last Sunday. No matter, he's an unpalatable fantasy option, as he hasn't scored a touchdown this season, while surpassing 30 yards receiving in merely two of 10 contests.

Wright had two receptions for 13 yards on three targets in Sunday's win over Tampa Bay.
Wright had been one of Teddy Bridgewater's favorite targets the previous two weeks, but Cordarrelle Patterson got most of the looks (12 targets) against the Bucs. Wright should remain in the mix going forward, but his upside may be limited if Patterson and Greg Jennings are healthy.

Wright had four receptions for 60 yards in Sunday's loss at Buffalo.
He was targeted four times, tied for second most on the team, as he's developed some chemistry with Teddy Bridgewater. If Minnesota's pass blocking get get out of it's recent slump, Wright could have value in deep leagues in the second half of the season.

Wright had four receptions for 17 yards and was targeted six times in Sunday's loss to Detroit. He also gained 21 yards on a reverse.

Wright caught 3-of-8 targets for 27 yards in Thursday's 42-10 loss to the Packers.
Wright led the Vikings in targets, with only one of those coming in the fourth quarter. The offense was completely dysfunctional under the direction of Christian Ponder, and while Teddy Bridgewater's expected Week 6 return should help Wright's prospects, the former Arkansas Razorback is likely just the third option in an inconsistent offense. That said, Wright could be a decent source of receptions, as the Vikes don't have much receiving talent at tight end or running back.

Wright had eight receptions (10 targets) for 132 yards in Sunday's win against Atlanta.
Wright came out of nowhere to post one of the best games of his career. He actually could have gone over 200 yards, but Teddy Bridgewater overthrew him on a wide-open bomb in the second half. Bridgewater did hurt his ankle late in the game, but the early indications are that he'll play in Week 5.
