Steer clear of Vikings WR's Thursday
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

The Vikings' receiving corps has had to deal with two different quarterbacks over the last two weeks, and they may see a third if Teddy Bridgewater's ankle injury forces him to sit out Thursday's game against the Packers in Week 5.

Though Bridgewater threw the ball well in his first start, it was little-used third receiver Jarius Wright who saw the bulk of the bump. Greg Jennings and Cordarrelle Patterson, the team's more well established duo, combined for just five receptions. Even if Bridgewater does play Thursday, we just don't have enough information on how he likes to use his receivers to know whether Sunday's game is the start of a pattern or not.

We really need to see more from Bridgewater before we can determine how he and the coaching staff wants to use his receivers. With nothing in the way of must-start players among this trio, you probably want to avoid using them in Week 5.

Chemistry in Jarius Wright's favor
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright's 132-yard performance Week 4 against Atlanta may seem like it came out of nowhere, but according to the St. Paul Pioneer Press, it's no coincidence it came during rookie quarterback Teddy Bridgewater's first NFL start. The two worked together on the second team this preseason and developed a chemistry.

"Teddy knew where to put the ball to me on a couple throws," Wright said. "I kind of knew where to expect the ball. Our reps paid off. A lot of trust."

Indeed, it wasn't just a big play or two that set Wright apart (though he had his share of those, including a 52-yard catch-and-run in the first quarter). Wright also led the Vikings in targets (10) and receptions (eight).

There may be something to this chemistry thing. Wright looked quick and deserving of a bigger role, especially since Cordarrelle Patterson hasn't lived up to the billing. Between him and Greg Jennings, the Vikings may have more mouths than they can realistically feed, but certainly in deeper leagues, Wright deserves a look off the waiver wire.

Jarius Wright breaks out Week 4
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Vikings wide receiver Jarius Wright turned in a breakout performance Week 4 against the Falcons.

Wright caught eight passes for 132 yards during the game. He was targeted a team-high 10 times. Wright made his biggest play early, catching a 52 yard pass from Teddy Bridgewater on the team's third play from scrimmage. He would show off his big play ability a few more times, catching at least three passes over 15 yards. 

Wright will look for more Week 5 against the Packers.
