Timothy Wright doesn't have clear role yet
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After seemingly breaking out as Tom Brady's second tight end Week 5 against Cincinnati, the Patriots' Timothy Wright did find the end zone for a second straight game Week 6 at Buffalo. But he did so in minimalist fashion, catching one pass on one target for 1 yard.

It's not like the Patriots weren't throwing the ball, either. In fact, Brady set season-highs in passing yards (361) and passing touchdowns (four). He just didn't look Wright's way much when he was on the field.

That wasn't all that often, I should add. Wright played only 23 percent of the Patriots' snaps, which was actually an improvement from the 22 percent he played in Week 5. Unless the Patriots make a concerted effort to get him the ball, he's not going to be able to do much of that.

The Patriots like to use two tight ends as much as any team in football, and Wright remains on the periphery in Fantasy for that reason alone. But he's little more than a desperation bye-week replacement in his current role.

Patriots TE Timothy Wright nets TD in second straight game
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Patriots tight end Timothy Wright scored for the second straight game during a 37-22 win Week 6 at Buffalo. Wright's only reception and target was a 1-yard touchdown that gave New England a 7-0 lead early in the second quarter.

Wright has totaled six catches for 86 yards and two touchdowns in his last two games. The Patriots are back in action Thursday against the Jets.

Timothy Wright has more to prove
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After playing a minimal role on offense the first four weeks, Patriots tight end Timothy Wright suddenly became a favorite target of quarterback Tom Brady Week 5 against Cincinnati, catching all five balls thrown his way for 85 yards.

And yet he may not be the answer to your prayers at tight end.

For one thing, five targets normally wouldn't be enough to sustain any player, much less a tight end. You can't expect Wright to catch every ball thrown to him every week. And a big reason why Wright got only five targets is because he played only 22 percent of the Patriots' snaps. Of the 19 plays he was on the field, he got the ball on five of them. Pretty wild.

That said, the Patriots obviously made more of an effort to get him the ball, and the results speak for themselves. Over the last few years, Brady has been at his best when he's had two tight ends he can trust, and Wright took a big step toward becoming that second guy in Week 5.

So you certainly wouldn't be crazy to add him in Fantasy. Just understand that he has to be on the field more to continue making this sort of impact.

Timothy Wright breaks out on Sunday Night Football
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Patriots tight end Timothy Wright, acquired via trade right before the season, entered Week 5 with four catches for 35 scoreless yards. He exploded against the Bengals for five catches, 85 yards and a touchdown.

Wright caught each of his targets and proved dangerous down the seam, as he showed on a 17-yard, first-quarter score. The Patriots used two tight ends often Sunday night, and the formation paid big dividends. Wright and Rob Gronkowski combined for 11 catches, 185 yards and two scores.

Wright visits the Bills in Week 6.

Brandon Bolden, Timothy Wright contribute little
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

Patriots running back Brandon Bolden ran twice for 4 yards Week 3 against Oakland. Tight end Timothy Wright caught the only pass thrown his way for 20 yards.

The two will continue to play just a supporting role Week 4 at Kansas City.
