Vikings' Kendall Wright: Just one reception Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 third receiver role looks wide open at this point since neither Wright nor Laquon Treadwell showed much in Saturday's preseason game.

Vikings' Kendall Wright: May be DNP often in 2018
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright is at risk of being a regular healthy scratch during the upcoming season, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.

With Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs embedded as the top two wide receivers and Laquon Treadwell turning heads at training camp, Wright has been relegated to work with the second-team offense, as he did during the offseason program. Wright was subsequently listed with the second-teamers on the Vikings' first unofficial depth chart. During media availability Wednesday, coach Mike Zimmer relayed that the wideouts battling for positions four, five and six must put in time on special teams. If a player is unable to do so, Zimmer said he "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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Laquon Treadwell took snaps as the third receiver with the first-team offense in Tuesday's OTAs, with Wright working with the second-team offense, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.

It's likely too early to reach 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Wright signed with the 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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
