Vikings | Jarius Wright ready for new role

Tue, 28 Jul 2015 13:19:56 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Jarius Wright said he's prepared to see more time in the slot this year. "I've been outside a lot with the Vikings," Wright said, "but I can definitely transfer over and play the slot." Head coach Mike Zimmer said Wright has already shown he can succeed there. "The best things that Jarius did were when he was in the slot," Zimmer said. "We keep working him outside but we know he has big value for us in the slot, as well."

Fantasy Tip: Wright may provide the Vikings with a lot of value in the slot, but he won't give fantasy owners much value. He could still be the fourth receiving option for Minnesota behind WRs Charles Johnson and Mike Wallace and TE Kyle Rudolph. He's a good addition for depth, but shouldn't be drafted as a starter.

Vikings | Jarius Wright expected to play slot

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 15:26:50 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Jarius Wright will probably play in the slot when the Vikings are in three-receiver sets. WRs Mike Wallace and Charles Johnson would assume the outside positions.

Fantasy Tip: Barring an injury, Wright won't see enough playing time to warrant starting, unless it's in deeper leagues in a flex position.

Vikings | Jarius Wright may be No. 3 WR

Wed, 15 Jul 2015 09:18:10 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Jarius Wright is expected to enter training camp as the leading candidate for the No. 3 wide receiver job. Wright showed good chemistry with QB Teddy Bridgewater last season and should have a solid role in the passing game this season.

Fantasy Tip: Wright played well at times last season with 588 receiving yards and two games of at least 100 yards. Wright could see time as the slot receiver this season and could be a late-round option in deeper leagues because of his chemistry with Bridgewater.

Vikings | Jarius Wright sits Wednesday

Wed, 24 Dec 2014 13:22:06 -0800

Minnesota Vikings WR Jarius Wright (back) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Dec. 24, due to a lower back injury.

Fantasy Tip: Wright's status for the regular season finale is unclear, so check back Friday for a better idea on his status. If he plays, he could be a nice WR4 or flex option against a poor Bears pass defense.
