Vikings | Jarius Wright has chemistry with QB

Mon, 29 Sep 2014 13:58:18 -0700

Minnesota Vikings WR Jarius Wright said he created a solid chemistry with QB Teddy Bridgewater during the preseason, which is why he caught eight passes for 132 yards in Week 4. "Teddy knew where to put the ball to me on a couple throws," Wright said. "I kind of knew where to expect the ball. Our reps paid off. A lot of trust."

Fantasy Tip: Wright played well in Week 4 and could continue to have a role in the passing game because of his work with Bridgewater during the preseason. Wright could be a sleeper for owners this week and could be a good option for owners on FantasyScore since his price will probably be low.
