Jarius Wright WR MIN 11 Days
Wright had four catches on five targets for 123 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's 30-24 overtime win over the Jets.
Wright was having a very modest fantasy day before catching a screen pass in overtime and taking it 87 yards for the game-winning touchdown. It was the second time this season that Wright has gone for more than 120 yards, but the touchdown was his first this year and he's failed to reach even 45 yards in 10 contests. Wright is a classic boom-or-bust option, but the booms are far too inconsistent to rely upon in most fantasy leagues.

Wright had two receptions for 40 yards on two targets and had one carry for five yards in Sunday's win over Carolina.
Wright has fallen behind Charles Johnson on the depth chart, but still is the third receiver with Cordarrelle Patterson surprisingly stuck on the bench last week (just three snaps on offense).

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 (hamstring) was a full participant in Friday's practice and is listed as probable for Sunday's game against Green Bay.
Wright didn't have a catch last week as he played with a hamstring injury. He looks healthy enough to play, but Charles Johnson continues to get more targets in the offense and reduce Wright's role.

Wright (hamstring) did not participate in practice Wednesday.
This doesn't look good for Wright's chances to play this Sunday against the Packers, meaning Cordarrelle Patterson and Greg Jennings should receive even more targets.

Wright had two receptions for 29 yards on four targets in Sunday's win over Washington.

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.
