We have been effusive in our support for Kendall Wright over the second half of this season, and with good reason. He is the 28th highest scorer at his position in standard leagues and is inside the top 20 in yards, while posting impressive PPR numbers with 71 catches. Of course, with just two scores he’s been a borderline fantasy play in smaller leagues. This week, there should be no debate. Wright will face a Broncos team that gives up top 10 numbers to opposing WRs. In large part due to the passing volume that comes from being a team that wins games by the margins that are typical in Denver. Best of all, Wright dominates the passing distribution in Tennessee. In the four games that Ryan Fitzpatrick has started since Tennessee’s Week 8 bye, Wright has seen a target on 27.9% of Fitzpatrick’s 140 attempts, leading the team in that category in each game and checks in as the 14th highest scoring WR. During that stretch, Fitzpatrick has averaged a healthy 35 pass attempts per game. This week, he’ll draw a Denver defense that has seen an average of 41.2 pass attempts per game against them this season. [Kendall Wright checks in as my WR19 this week] Again, teams have to pass more against Denver than they typically would. That fact shouldn’t change for Tennessee this week and with the assumption that Wright will again be the biggest beneficiary, we should see more targets and receptions than usual (Wright’s 71.7% catch percentage is the 9th best in the league according to Pro Football Focus, so more targets easily equates to more catches). The problem all season – from a fantasy perspective – is that Wright hasn’t been able to find the endzone. He scored two weeks ago against Oakland but went eight weeks without one prior to that and has just two scores on the season. We won’t project a score this week against Denver, either, but the floor on Wright is fairly high. He hasn’t been held below 69 yards in two months. Wright’s combination of good hands and speed getting in and out of his breaks could prove difficult for the Denver secondary. Already the 16th most targeted WR in the league he can be reasonably projected to climb into the top 10 in that number this week. A 9/12/100 line is not a stretch and should prove very serviceable across all settings, playing particularly well in PPR with potential for more in the matchup.
