    Vikings' Kendall Wright: Roster spot could be in jeopardy

    Kendall Wright did not have a reception and was targeted just once in Saturday's preseason loss to Jacksonville. It's possible the Minnesota Vikings could cut Wright, ESPN 1500 AM Twin Cities reports.Wright had just one reception for nine yards in the first preseason game and there's been little buzz about his role in training camp. He would appear to have a shot to win the No. 3 receiver role given his success in the slot last season (80.4 percent catch rate), but there's been little positive news about his job battle with Laquon Treadwell so far.

    Vikings' Kendall Wright: Just one reception Saturday

    Kendall Wright had just one reception for nine yards in Saturday's preseason win at Denver.Wright got playing time with the second-team offense and didn't show much despite playing 28 snaps. He entered training camp as the favorite for the third receiver role, but a recent report said he's at risk of being a healthy scratch on game days due to his lack of special teams play. However, the No. 3 WR role looks wide open at this point, as neither Wright nor Laquon Treadwell showed much in Saturday's preseason game.

    Vikings' Kendall Wright: Could be healthy inactive often in 2018

    Kendall Wright is at risk of being a regular healthy scratch for the Minnesota Vikings during the upcoming season, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.With Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs embedded as the top two wide receivers and third-year man Laquon Treadwell turning heads at training camp, Wright has been relegated to work with the second-team offense, which was also the case during the Vikings' offseason program. Wright was subsequently listed with the second teamers on the Vikings' first unofficial depth chart of the season. During media availability Wednesday, head coach Mike Zimmer relayed that the wideouts battling for the fourth through sixth spots on the depth chart must put in time on special teams. If a player is unable to do so, Zimmer said that wideout "probably won't be dressed on game day." Wright only has four special-teams snaps to his name across six pro campaigns, so a spot on inactive lists could characterize his first year in Minnesota.

    Vikings' Kendall Wright: Works with second-team offense

    Laquon Treadwell took snaps as the third receiver with the first-team offense in Tuesday's OTAs, with Kendall Wright working with the second-team offense, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.It's likely too early to read much into the competition for the No. 3 receiver role, but this may indicate it's not a forgone concussion that Wright will emerge as the winner. 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. Meanwhile, Treadwell has had little production with just 20 receptions for 200 yards in 16 games last season. Wright has some upside if he wins a sizeable role as his slot receiver skills could be a nice match for Kirk Cousin's exceptional intermediate passing game.

    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.
