From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 17): Wright was still just a role player for the Titans, but what a role. He was targeted nine times in limited action and turned that into a huge game, including a highlight reel 48-yard diving touchdown catch. He has the best chemistry with Marcus Mariota of any Titans wide receiver and is worth carrying to see if it continues in a good matchup with the Colts this week.

Week 7: vs Indianapolis Colts

All WR vs IND

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Marcus Mariota comes into this contest on a hot streak - he's thrown three TDs in each of his last two games, and had a rushing TD to go with his three thrown TDs two weeks ago against Miami - Mariota has rushed seven times in each of the last two games and gained at least 60 yards in each. Against Cleveland last week Mariota had 17/24 for 284 yards passing, three TDs and one interception thrown, with 7/64/0 rushing to boot. Mariota has spread out the wealth during that two week hot streak, targeting Kendall Wright (10 for 9/142/1) and Delanie Walker (10 for 6/87/1) the most, followed by Demarco Murray (eight for 5/16/0), Rishard Matthews (seven for 7/102/2) and Tajae Sharpe (seven for 2/17/0). Sharpe was called out as regressing by head coach Mike Mularkey on Monday, October 17. The Colts' pass defense gave up 25/39 for 256 net yards passing, two TDs and one interception thrown, with one sack generated for -13 yards, to Brock Osweiler last Sunday night. Two weeks ago Brian Hoyer threw 33/43 for 397 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions with zero sacks taken against the Colts. This defense is reeling backwards out of control right now, friends. From Week Four to Week Six of the 2016 season (over the last three weeks), Indianapolis has averaged 25.3 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (sixth-most in the NFL); and 24 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (16th in the league); with 8.7 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (seventh-most). This is a great matchup for the red-hot Mariota.

Recent Game Summaries

2016 Week 6 vs CLE (9 / 8 / 133 / 1 rec)

After a slow start to the season, Kendall Wright exploded onto the scene this week as he led the Titans in all receiving categories on the way to his highest yardage total since Week 15 of the 2013 season. Wright was targeted three times as much as any other single receiver on the team this week. He set the tone for the day by hauling in the Titans' first big play of the game on a 26-yard pass to convert a 3rd and 15 during their first drive. Wright was far from done though, as he later made the most spectacular play of the game to haul in a diving 48-yard touchdown. Wright simply beat the coverage here as he sprinted across field and absolutely laid out in full stride to bring in the deep ball around the 2-yard line before rolling into the end zone. It was a controversial touchdown call as Wright may have been touched while on the ground before rolling into the end zone, but the touchdown was upheld after review.

Titans | Kendall Wright shines in limited time (Mon Oct 17, 12:23 PM) - Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright played only 22-of-62 snaps in a Week 6 victory over the Cleveland Browns, but he still posted season highs across the board with eight catches, 133 yards and a touchdown despite running 14 pass routes.

Our View: Wright came back from injury in a big way. His emergence in the passing game on both shallow and deep routes keeps the targets down for other players like TE Delanie Walker. If he stays healthy, Wright could end up as a WR3/flex play each week as a featured player in the Titans passing attack.

Titans | Kendall Wright posts strong game (Sun Oct 16, 05:42 PM) - Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright caught eight passes for 133 yards, including a 48-yard touchdown, in a 28-26 win Sunday, Oct. 16, against the Cleveland Browns.

Our View: Wright is back from the dead in fantasy leagues. He had the best chemistry that any Titans wide receiver has had with Marcus Mariota this year, and Wright had the play of his career on the diving long touchdown catch. He'll be a what the heck flex against Oakland next week to see if he can keep it up.
