RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Traded from Tampa Bay to Detroit on Aug. 31, Wright will likely see more targets than the average No. 3 tight end. With Eric Ebron penciled in as the starter and Brandon Pettigrew likely to make his money as a blocker, look for Wright to be moved around the formation to create mismatches, perhaps seeing time as an over-sized slot receiver. In his first two seasons in the league, Wright has made a name for himself as a red-zone threat, hauling in 11 of his 80 career receptions for touchdowns.

2014

An undrafted rookie last season, Wright converted from wide receiver to tight end and became the Bucs' starter at TE by Week 5. From that point, prorated over a full season, his numbers equal 70 receptions for 681 yards and six touchdowns. He caught 72 percent of his targets, fourth among qualified tight ends, despite playing with a rookie quarterback and the league's poorest passing attack, both of which also partially account for his few lackluster games. At 6-4, 220, with 4.65 speed, Wright is a tough receiving matchup. After being dealt to New England, Wright now provides the Patriots with a legitimate pass-catching option to combine with Rob Gronkowski, who the team still hopes will be ready for Week 1. In any case, the addition of Wright opens the door for the team to run more two-tight end sets (when Gronkowski is healthy) and in such a scenario, Wright could carve out some fantasy utility in PPR formats. Moreover, those looking to insure their investments in Gronkowski now have another option to consider for their early-season lineups.

2013

Signed by the Buccaneers in September of 2013.
