    Vikings' Kendall Wright: Signing with Minnesota

    Kendall Wright signed with the Minnesota Vikings on Friday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.Wright hasn't quite lived up to his status as the 20th overall selection from the 2012 draft, but he's at least proven to be an effective slot man in three-wide formations. The Vikings probably don't need him to be anything more, as they already boast one of the league's top wideout duos in Stefon Diggs and Adam Thielen. This signing suggests the team doesn't have much faith in 2016 first-round selection Laquon Treadwell, who caught 20 passes for 200 yards in 16 games last season. Of course, the No. 3 receiver role likely will lead to no more than 4-5 targets per game, considering the Vikings also need to feed TE Kyle Rudolph (ankle) and RBs Dalvin Cook (knee) and Latavius Murray. Per Cronin, Wright led all qualified receivers last season with an 80.4 percent catch rate on targets while playing from the slot.

    Kendall Wright: Meets with Vikings

    Kendall Wright is visiting the Vikings on Thursday, Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune reports.A first-round pick of the Titans in 2012, Wright may not have lived up to expectations but still has had modest success as a professional. In particular, he has a 1,000-yard season to his name (2013), boasts a career catch rate of 64 percent and has 19 touchdowns in 82 games. Coming off a 59-614-1 line on 91 targets with the Bears last year, the 28-year-old has plenty left in the tank. If a deal with the Vikings manifests itself, he'd effectively cover for the recently-released Jarius Wright as the No. 3 wide receiver, primarily working in the slot.

    Bears' Kendall Wright: Catches five passes in Week 17

    Kendall Wright caught five passes for 29 yards in the Chicago 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.

    Bears' Kendall Wright: Leads team with six targets

    Kendall Wright caught four passes for 27 yards in Sunday's 20-3 victory over the Browns.The Chicago 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.

    Bears' Kendall Wright: Targeted 13 times in Saturday loss

    Kendall Wright caught seven passes for 81 yards in Saturday's 20-10 loss to the Lions.Wright was extremely quiet until the Chicago 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.

    Bears' Kendall Wright: Will play Saturday

    Kendall 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 Chicago 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.

    Bears' Kendall Wright: Tending to shoulder injury

    Kendall Wright (shoulder) was listed as limited on the Chicago 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.

    Bears' Kendall Wright: Grabs season-high 10 receptions

    Kendall Wright caught 10 of 11 targets for 107 yards during Sunday's 33-7 win over Cincinnati.After hauling in just six of 11 targets for 65 yards through the past three weeks, Wright's huge day came out of nowhere. While there is potential that rookie quarterback Mitch Trubisky is turning the corner, it's probably best to keep fantasy expectations in check with Wright. He's still difficult to trust in the majority of settings considering his underwhelming production entering Week 14.

    Bears' Kendall Wright: Catches two passes in Week 13

    Kendall Wright brought in both of his targets for 25 yards in Sunday's 15-14 loss to the 49ers.In a close contest, Mitchell Trubisky attempted just 15 passes, and no Chicago wide receiver posted more than Wright's 25 yards. Having gone over that mark just once over his last six games, Wright provides very little fantasy upside, especially now that Dontrelle Inman has become the team's primary receiver.

    Bears' Kendall Wright: Posts 15 yards in Sunday loss

    Kendall Wright caught two passes for 15 yards in Sunday's 31-3 loss to the Eagles.Wright was targeted five times but had nothing more than a couple short receptions to show for it. He's failed to top 25 yards four times in his last five games, and he's little more than a desperation lineup option in leagues that award a point per reception.
