Fantasy Analysis | 1414106474
New quarterback for Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

The good news for Titans wide receivers Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter in Week 8 is that they're facing the Texans, who rank 26th against the pass, allowing 268.7 yards per game, and have given up the fifth-most Fantasy points per game to wide receivers. The bad news for Wright and Hunter is that they'll be working with a rookie quarterback who'll be making his first NFL start.

Zach Mettenberger was only a sixth-round pick, but he's getting the start even though Jake Locker is set to return from a two-week absence for a thumb injury. Having Locker under center would have been a best-case scenario for Wright and Hunter. As it is, you shouldn't expect them to contribute much more than they did with Charlie Whitehurst at quarterback for most of the last three games.

Wright is probably the safer bet of the two because he's more of an underneath route runner. What he lacks in yardage he makes up for in catches, and unlike some players with a similar role, the Titans don't shy away from him in the red zone. Hunter, as more of a downfield threat, may have a harder time connecting with Mettenberger, so you'll want to sit him for now.

Titans WR Kendall Wright ties career high with fourth TD
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright bounced back from a one-catch performance Week 6 to have one of his better games this season during a 19-17 loss Week 7 at Washington. Wright totaled a team-high 68 receiving yards and one touchdown on six catches.

Wright, who was targeted nine times, gave Tennessee a 10-6 lead with a 14-yard touchdown catch with 1:04 left in the second quarter. It was his fourth touchdown, which tied a career high. Wright has three touchdowns in his last three games.

The 68 yards were also a season high. Wright has now managed a season-high six catches three times. The Titans are back in action Week 8 vs. Houston.

Nate Washington, Kendall Wright barely targeted Week 6
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Titans wideouts Nate Washington and Kendall Wright were afterthoughts in the team's Week 6 win over Jacksonville. Washington caught both his targets for 23 yards, while Wright secured his only target for 6 yards.

It was a huge disappointment for Wright, who caught 11 passes against the Jaguars last year and was coming off a two-touchdown game Week 5. Washington and Wright visit the Redskins in Week 7.

Titans receivers hoping for an encore
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Before last week's breakout performance, relying on anyone in the Titans' receiving corps was likely to end in heartbreak. However, Justin Hunter and Kendall Wright broke out in Week 5, and will look to keep the good times coming in Week 6 against the Jaguars.

Hunter and Wright entered Week 5 with just one combined double-digit Fantasy game between them, but both topped that level against the Browns. And though they may seem like flashes in the pan, they have a chance to keep up their production with the Jaguars on the schedule in Week 6. The Jaguars have allowed 26.0 Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers, including seven individual games of at least 8 Fantasy points in five contests.

Understand, neither Hunter nor Wright should be considered a slam dunk for this week's game, even with a solid matchup. The Titan's passing game has been erratic, and there are questions about who will start at quarterback, given Jake Locker's injury. However, if you need an injury or bye week fill-in, however, taking a chance on one of these guys may prove fruitful.

What do two TDs mean for Kendall Wright?
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

In terms of yardage -- or at least receiving yardage -- Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright didn't have an exceptional performance Week 5 vs. Cleveland, picking up 47 yards on six catches. It was the fourth time in five games he had between 44 and 55 receiving yards.

So then, do the two touchdowns he scored greatly change his Fantasy value? Maybe he was a little behind pace with only one through his first four games, but even if that's the case, outside of points-per-reception leagues, you pretty much need a touchdown from Wright to justify starting him with that kind of yardage.

And the touchdowns may be even harder to come by if starting quarterback Jake Locker ends up missing time with an injured thumb. Charlie Whitehurst doesn't bring as much to the table.

As for Wright's 43 rushing yards in Week 5, it's pretty safe to say those don't change his Fantasy value either. He didn't have a rushing attempt in his first four games.
