  • Matthew Wright: Let go Wednesday

    Wright was released by the Jaguars on Wednesday, John Reid of The Florida Times-Union reports.

    The Jaguars cut Wright coming off a season in which he appeared in 14 contests and made 21 of 24 field-goal attempts. He took over for the released Josh Lambo in Week 4 last season and never relinquished kicker duties. However, with a new coaching staff in place of 2022, Wright apparently wasn't viewed as sufficient competition for Ryan Santoso and Andrew Mevis, who remain on hand as the Jaguars' kicking options.

  • Jaguars' Matthew Wright: Perfect on six kicks in finale

    Wright made all four field-goal attempts and both PATs during Sunday's 26-11 win over the Colts.

    Wright made field goals from 20, 22, 31 and 39 yards and finished the campaign by making his last 14 attempts. The 25-year-old served as Jacksonville's kicker for 14 games, and he went 21-for-24 on field goals and 13-for-15 on extra points. Wright remains under contract for 2022 and should be the favorite to kick next season, though the Jags may bring in some competition.

  • Jaguars' Matthew Wright: Makes both kicks in blowout

    Wright made his lone field-goal attempt and his lone PAT during Sunday's 50-10 loss at New England.

    Jacksonville's offense managed only 11 first downs, so Wright once again had limited opportunities in the kicking game. He missed his first field goal of the season but is 16-for-18 on field goals over the past 10 games. Despite not missing a field goal since Week 10, Wright won't be on the fantasy radar for the final game of the regular season given the offense's struggles.

  • Jaguars' Matthew Wright: Perfect on three kicks

    Wright made all three field-goal attempts and did not attempt an extra-point during Sunday's 26-21 loss to the Jets.

    Wright converted field goals from 21, 40 and 45 yards but never receive a PAT opportunity since Jacksonville attempted two-point conversions on all three touchdowns. The 25-year-old has now kicked three field goals in each of the past two games after not attempting any over the previous two contests. The inconsistent offense limits his fantasy value, but Wright has come on strong and is 16-for-19 on field-goal attempts and 10-for-12 on PATs this season.

  • Jaguars' Matthew Wright: Makes both field goals

    Wright converted both field-goal attempts and did not attempt an extra-point during Sunday's 21-14 loss to Atlanta.

    Wright converted from 22 and 34 yards in the contest, and the Jaguars opted for a two-point conversion on their only touchdown of the afternoon. He continue to have limited fantasy upside in poor offense that has topped the 20-point mark only three times in 11 games.
