Titans wide receiver
Wright caught two passes for 17 yards. He was only targeted three times. Ryan Fitzpatrick only completed 13 passes, so that explains why nearly all of the team's receivers struggled. Wright will look for more Week 15 against the Cardinals.
Wright practiced in full Thursday and Friday. Ayers and Kern were able to return to full practice Friday.
Success has brought added defensive attention for
"It was my first time I had a linebacker inside of me and a nickel defender outside of me," Wright told the team website about his experience last Sunday against Indianapolis. "So it was hard, but [fellow Titans wideout Nate Washington] had a great game, so we've just got to make plays when we can."
Wright still caught six passes for 77 yards against the Colts and has 51 receptions for 648 yards in his last eight games. He has only scored one touchdown, however, in that span.
Denver has struggled with opposing wide receivers, allowing them to score 24.50 Fantasy points per game. Through 12 games, the team has allowed 23 passing touchdowns. Of those 23 touchdowns, only 13 have gone to wide receivers. The Broncos have been susceptible against tight ends and running backs in the passing game, which has led to opposing receivers scoring less often than normal. But given Denver's ability to score a lot of points, opposing teams have had to turn to the passing game in order to keep pace.
Wright has emerged as a strong PPR candidate, catching 71 passes, which ranks seventh in the league. Despite his usage, he hasn't been a big threat in the red zone, catching just two touchdowns thus far. He could be a candidate to produce another solid catch, solid yardage day against a poor defense, but Fantasy owners can't depend on him finding the end zone yet.
