Wright caught five passes for 29 yards in the Bears 23-10 loss to the Vikings in the 2017 season finale, ending the season with 59 catches for 614 yards and a touchdown in 16 games. Wright, despite an unimpressive yardage total in 2017, easily posted the most receiving yardage of any Bears' wide receiver. He primarily benefited from running his routes in the slot in an extremely conservative pass offense that rarely took downfield shots, allowing him to benefit from plenty of high-percentage targets. He'll be an unrestricted free agent, and should be able to land a deal that'll allow him to compete for a role as a starting slot receiver, and any fantasy value he'll have will be directly dependent upon his landing spot and potential role.
Wright caught four passes for 27 yards in Sunday's 20-3 victory over the Browns. The Bears led this game throughout, and Mitch Trubisky threw the ball just 23 times, with Wright pacing the team in receptions and targets (six). Due to the game script, Trubisky threw very few downfield passes, so Wright was never in line to post significant yardage. After being quiet for a majority of the season, Wright has posted at least 81 yards in two of his last three games, but the wideout faces a challenging matchup at Minnesota in the season finale.
Wright caught seven passes for 81 yards in Saturday's 20-10 loss to the Lions. Wright was extremely quiet until the Bears fell behind by 17 points early in the second half. Once the team had to throw on almost every down, he found himself frequently getting open against Detroit's prevent defense, though he caught just slightly more than half of his 13 targets. After posting just 129 yards over a six-game period, he's caught 17 passes for 188 yards over the last two weeks and has quickly become a player who could help teams in the fantasy playoffs.
Wright (shoulder) will suit up Saturday in Detroit after practicing in full Thursday, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. On Tuesday and Wednesday, the Bears capped Wright's practice reps due to a shoulder injury, but his ability to handle everything thrown at him Thursday suggests he'll be his usual self Week 15. With the Lions' 27th-ranked pass defense on tap, he'll aim to post a second 100-yard outing in a row.
Wright (shoulder) was listed as limited on the Bears' injury report Tuesday, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports. Since Mitchell Trubisky took the reins of the offense in Week 5, Wright has been consistently targeted, but his catch rate (54.3 percent) and yards per target (6.2) prior to Sunday's 10-reception, 107-yard performance left much to be desired. Assuming his health checks out by week's end, Wright will aim to make sure the outburst wasn't an aberration Saturday against the Lions' 27th-ranked pass defense.
