Wright played 29 snaps on offense in Sunday's win over the Packers but was not targeted in the passing game. Wright has fallen to fifth on the depth chart and hasn't been targeted in any of the last three games. While he could move to No. 4 on the depth chart with both Stefon Diggs (groin) and Michael Floyd (calf) hurt, it's hard to see Wright having a significant role.
Wright did not have a pass thrown his way in Sunday's loss to Detroit and played just four snaps on offense. A week after scoring a touchdown, Wright was non-existent in Minnesota's offense. His road to relevance will only get tougher this week with Michael Floyd returning from a suspension, so he's not likely to be enough of a factor for almost any fantasy format.
Wright had two receptions for nine yards, including a two-yard touchdown, on three targets in Sunday's 34-17 win over Tampa Bay. Wright scored the touchdown but played fewer snaps as a third receiver (18) than Laquon Treadwell. Neither Treadwell nor Wright have a large enough role in the offense to merit a spot on most fantasy rosters, and the situation won't get better when Michael Floyd returns from a suspension in Week 5.
Wright had just on reception for nine yards on two targets in Sunday's loss at Pittsburgh. He played just 12 snaps on offense compared to 50 for Laquon Treadwell, who also had six targets. It looks like Wright is behind Treadwell for the third receiver role. However, the third receiver may not matter much for fantasy purposes if Sam Bradford can't return soon from a knee injury.
Wright converted one of two targets into a 21-yard gain in Monday's win over the Saints. One of the big surprises of Week 1 was Minnesota's offense, particularly in the passing game where Sam Bradford looked as good as he's ever been. Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and Kyle Rudolph figure to benefit most from this development, but if Minnesota's offense keeps this up, Wright could -- at the very least -- be more valuable this season than originally thought.
