RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2017

Subscribe now to see our 2017 outlook.

2016

With the addition of first-round pick Laquon Treadwell and the departure of deep-threat Mike Wallace, Wright figures to once again serve as a third or fourth option in the Vikings' receiving corps, likely getting most of his work out of the slot. He won't catch many passes downfield and doesn't offer much upside in a run-heavy offense, but Wright has proven to be an efficient chain-mover for Minnesota on third downs. If Treadwell, Stefon Diggs or TE Kyle Rudolph were to suffer a long-term injury, Wright might be needed in a larger role. Otherwise, he's unlikely to eclipse last year's production by a significant margin.

2015

Wright will likely reprise his role as the No. 4 receiver. He's been productive in stretches (two 100-yard games) and effective running reverses, but the Vikings don't use four-receiver sets often, limiting his upside. However, Wright has shown the ability to get behind the defense, and could continue to produce an occasional big game.

2014

Wright is firmly stuck as the no. 4 receiver on the Vikings' depth chart, and even with an improved offensive outlook in 2014 thanks to Norv Turner and competent quarterbacking from Matt Cassel and/or first round pick Teddy Bridgewater, that's not a role likely to generate a lot of targets.

2013

Wright posted 22 receptions for 310 yards and two touchdowns in seven games as a rookie last season. He is expected to serve as the Vikings' fourth receiver in 2013.

2012

Wright, a fourth-round 2012 draft pick, will likely be a reserve receiver and may not get many snaps on offense this season. However, he could emerge with a significant special teams role as either a punt or kickoff returner.
