  Cardinals | Kendall Wright returns to Arizona    Mon Nov 5, 12:37 PM

Free-agent WR Kendall Wright (Cardinals) signed an undisclosed contract with the Arizona Cardinals on Monday, Nov. 5.

Footballguys view: Wright was signed to the Cardinals roster back in early October but barely lasted over a week with the team before getting released. Now he's back, and the Cardinals could use depth at the WR position...but Wright is not any sort of fantasy option at this point of his career.

  Cardinals | Arizona adds Kendall Wright    Mon Oct 8, 05:08 PM

Free-agent WR Kendall Wright (Vikings) signed a one-year deal with the Arizona Cardinals Monday, Oct. 8. Financial terms were not disclosed. The team also released CB Deatrick Nichols.

Footballguys view: Wright has value as a slot receiver but he failed to make the Vikings 53-man roster earlier this year and was let go before the start of the regular season. The only way Wright could have much of an impact is if Larry Fitzgerald were to miss time with his lingering hamstring injury.

  Redskins | Washington works out three players    Mon Sep 17, 05:47 PM

Free-agent QB Paxton Lynch (Broncos), WR Michael Floyd (Saints) and WR Kendall Wright (Vikings) worked out for the Washington Redskins Monday, Sept. 17.

Footballguys view: Washington has only two quarterbacks on the active roster (Alex Smith, Colt McCoy) and they don't have a third quarterback on the practice squad. Since getting released by the Broncos, 2016 first-round pick Paxton Lynch has gotten a few teams interested. Indications are that he hasn't impressed during the interview process. We'll see if someone wants to take a chance on the physical attributes (size, arm strength) that Lynch clearly has.

  Vikings | Kendall Wright may be weekly inactive    Wed Aug 8, 10:05 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Kendall Wright likely would be inactive each week if he is not able to help the team on special teams, according to head coach Mike Zimmer. Wright is competing for one of the receiver spots on the final roster.

  Vikings | Kendall Wright a backup?    Thu Jun 7, 11:27 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Kendall Wright has been working with the second-team offense during OTAs.

Footballguys view: Wright had 59 catches for the Bears last year and comes to Minnesota in 2018 to give Kirk Cousins a reliable no.3 or no.4 wide receiver. From a fantasy perspective, Wright is nothing more than a WR6 who could have some flex value during bye weeks in deep leagues.

  Vikings | Two options for Vikings No. 3 receiver    Mon May 7, 05:42 PM

Minnesota Vikings WRs Kendall Wright and Laquon Treadwell likely will compete for the No. 3 receiver job during training camp.

Footballguys view: There's not much to go around for the Vikings no.3 WR because of TE Kyle Rudolph...and the fact that Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs get most of the looks. We'll see if new starting QB Kirk Cousins grows attached to Wright or Treadwell, but they shouldn't have too many looks coming their way in 2018.

  Vikings | Kendall Wright expected to be No. 3 WR    Sat Mar 31, 03:03 PM

Minnesota Vikings WR Kendall Wright is expected to serve as the No. 3 receiver for the Vikings next season.

Footballguys view: That's as it should be as Wright can have good success as the team's slot receiver. Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs will continue to do damage on the outside.

  Vikings | Kendall Wright finds new home in Minnesota     Fri Mar 30, 03:10 PM

Free-agent WR Kendall Wright (Bears) signed an undisclosed contract with the Minnesota Vikings on Friday, March 30.

Footballguys view: Wright replaces the recently departed Jarius Wright (Panthers) in the Vikings WR corps. He's a slot receiver who should give QB Kirk Cousins another quality weapon to throw to behind Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs.

  Vikings | Kendall Wright meets with MIN    Thu Mar 29, 06:25 PM

Free-agent WR Kendall Wright (Bears) recently met with the Minnesota Vikings, according to a source.

  Chiefs | Kendall Wright visiting Chiefs    Thu Mar 22, 08:30 AM

Free-agent WR Kendall Wright (Bears) is visiting the Kansas City Chiefs Thursday, March 22.

Footballguys view: Wright will be on his super-duper, ultimate "we really mean it" last chance wherever he lands. He's yet to be consistent enough for anyone to rely on him and we don't much see that changing.

  Bears | Week 17 game recap for Bears    Sun Dec 31, 04:40 PM

Chicago Bears QB Mitchell Trubisky completed 20-of-36 pass attempts for 178 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 17 against the Minnesota Vikings. RB Tarik Cohen rushed for 13 yards on three yards, which actually led the team, while RB Jordan Howard ran nine times for nine yards. WR Dontrelle Inman led the team with 94 yards on five receptions, while WR Josh Bellamy chipped in with a 30-yard grab on his only catch. WR Kendall Wright wrapped up the season with five snags for 29 yards, while Cohen finished with a team-high six receptions but just 14 yards.

Footballguys view: Trubisky's rookie year is far from encouraging, but the team's offense was not always imaginative and he could benefit if the Bears move in a more offense-oriented direction with their head coaching hire. Jordan Howard was strong when the anachronistic Bears offense found a game script to match, but that was the exception, not the rule this year.

  Bears | Kendall Wright busy in loss    Sat Dec 16, 09:11 PM

Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright caught seven passes on 13 targets for 81 yards in a 20-10 loss to the Detroit Lions Saturday, Dec. 16.

Footballguys view: Wright compiled stats in garbage time to work out for anyone who trusted him in PPR leagues, but next week against the Browns might not be a blowout loss that opens up the passing game. He's still just a desperation play.

  Bears | Kendall Wright ready to play    Thu Dec 14, 03:25 PM

Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright (shoulder) fully participated in practice Thursday, Dec. 14, and is not on the injury report for Week 15.

Footballguys view: Wright and Mitch Trubisky connected a lot last week, but it was unusual for the Bears to pass as much as they did. Given that uncertainty, we can't trust him as an upside WR5.

  Bears | Kendall Wright hits century mark    Sun Dec 10, 06:29 PM

Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright posted season highs with 10 receptions, 107 yards and 11 targets in Week 14 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Footballguys view: Wright took his turn as the #1 receiver this week and made Dontrelle Inman irrelevant. He's a free agent next year, but if Wright can continue to develop chemistry with Trubisky maybe the team will bring him back.

  Bears | Kendall Wright finds the end zone    Fri Sep 29, 01:22 AM

Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright tallied four receptions, 51 yards and a touchdown against the Green Bay Packers in Week 4.

Footballguys view: Wright is the most likely Bears wide receiver to have some value if Mitchell Trubisky gets the call and pumps some life into this offense, but even his best-case scenario is likely just bench depth in fantasy leagues. He's worth waiver wire consideration in deeper leagues.

  Bears | Kendall Wright catches seven passes    Sun Sep 17, 04:36 PM

Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright caught seven passes for 69 yards against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 2.

  Bears | Kendall Wright so-so in team debut    Sun Sep 10, 06:32 PM

Chicago Bears WR Kendall Wright posted three receptions for 34 yards on four targets in Week 1 against the Falcons.

Footballguys view: Wright could have some deep league value after Kevin White suffered a likely broken collarbone, but the Bears offense isn't going to make much out of its wide receivers this year.

  Bears | Evaluating Chicago's WRs    Mon Jun 5, 09:43 AM

Chicago Bears WRs Cameron Meredith (thumb), Kevin White and Markus Wheaton (shoulder) are considered locks to make the 53-man roster, in the opinion of Chicago Tribune writer Dan Wiederer. WRs Victor Cruz, Kendall Wright, Josh Bellamy, Deonte Thompson and Daniel Braverman are considered to be on the bubble. WRs Tanner Gentry, Rueben Randle and Titus Davis are viewed as long shots for the final roster.

Footballguys view: Meredith and potentially White have fantasy value, but there's not much else that gets us excited here. Wheaton couldn't stay healthy or impress during his time with the Steelers. Cruz is a great story (and a great dancer) but not a great fantasy asset. We're a bit intrigued by Gentry in super deep dynasty leagues as his 49 targets of 20 yards or more in 2016 led the FBS (per PFF). That's about it really...and don't expect the Bears passing game to light the world on fire no matter if Mike Glennon or Mitchell Trubisky is the starter at quarterback.

  Bears | Kendall Wright headed to Chicago    Sat Mar 11, 07:18 PM

Free-agent WR Kendall Wright (Titans) agreed to terms on a one-year, $4 million contract with the Tennessee Titans on Saturday, March 11.

Footballguys view: This makes the second WR the Bears added in free agency. They added Markus Wheaton too, but his spot on the 53-man roster is not guaranteed. The addition of Wright should make Eddie Royal expendable. Wright had a 94-catch, 1,000-yard season way back in 2013 and it's downhill since then. We should see him play a larger role for the Bears than he did for the Titans in recent seasons.

  Broncos | Kendall Wright could interest Denver    Wed Jan 25, 11:02 PM

Impending free-agent Kendall Wright 'could be a good pick-up at a cheap price,' according to the Denver Post's Cameron Wolfe.

Footballguys view: He has the talent to be more than depth at the position and past Emmanuel Sanders and Demaryius Thomas, the Broncos don't have much. With his upside and the price tag on the other two, the Broncos could grab him with the thought he might turn into a replacement for one of them. He has a lot of work to do, though.

  Titans | Kendall Wright expects to play elsewhere    Thu Jan 5, 12:28 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright has an expiring contract, and he said he doesn't believe he is in the team's plans for 2017. 'I'll be glad to see what I can do and make a team fall in love with me and go and do what I know I can do,' Wright said.

Footballguys view: It's been a long time since Wright's best season (2013) where he had 94 catches, 1,079 receiving yards and two touchdowns. This season, Wright was targeted only 43 times, caught 29 passes for 416 yards and three touchdowns in 11 games. We can't imagine the market will be white-hot for his services.

  Titans | Kendall Wright catches long score    Fri Oct 28, 12:08 AM

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright had four catches for 84 yards, including a 36-yard touchdown, in a 36-22 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars Thursday, Oct. 27.

Footballguys view: Everything worked against the woeful Jaguars defense this week. Wright has been up and down since he returned and is only a deep bench option because of the low volume Titans pass offense.

  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.

Footballguys 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.

Footballguys 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.

  Titans | Tennessee to lean on Kendall Wright?    Fri Sep 30, 11:35 PM

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright is expected to provide a boost to the offense because of his quickness, according to offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie.

Footballguys view: We'll believe it when we see it. Fantasy owners can keep him on the wavier wire for the time being. If you're in a super deep league, then keep Wright on your speed dial just in case.

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (hamstring) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 30, and is not on the injury report for Week 4.
