Patriots | Tim Wright debuts

Fri, 29 Aug 2014 07:58:26 -0700

New England Patriots TE Tim Wright caught four passes for 43 yards in roughly one half of action in the final preseason game Thursday, Aug. 28. It was his first game with his new team.

Fantasy Tip: Wright is an intriguing sleeper if he can learn the offense quickly. He's not worth drafting right now, but he could rise up the fringe of waiver possibilities as the season progresses.

Patriots | Tim Wright to play

Thu, 28 Aug 2014 13:48:00 -0700

New England Patriots TE Timothy Wright is expected to play Thursday, Aug. 28, against the New York Giants after recently being acquired from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Fantasy Tip: Wright is expected to fill the role Aaron Hernandez played and is worth a flier in deeper leagues. As Rob Gronkowski's backup, Wright could gain even more value considering Gronkowski's injury history.

Patriots | No setbacks for Rob Gronkowski

Tue, 26 Aug 2014 15:30:48 -0700

New England Patriots TE Rob Gronkowski (knee) has not encountered any setbacks from the end of last week, and the acquisition of TE Timothy Wright is not a sign that the team is concerned about Gronkowski's health. The Patriots have wanted to remain cautious with Gronkowski's workload this preseason. Wright is a "move" tight end, similar to the role free-agent TE Aaron Hernandez used to play with the team.

Fantasy Tip: Gronkowski remains a fine risk as a TE1, as long as he stays healthy. As Wesseling mentions, Wright won't ever take the place of Gronkowski in blocking situations, but he could be useful as a TE2, especially if Gronk is limited at all early in the season.

Buccaneers | Timothy Wright struggling

Sun, 17 Aug 2014 19:23:46 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Timothy Wright has been struggling with his catching and blocking during practice, according to head coach Lovie Smith. "He's dropped some balls. If you watched practice, he's dropped balls. But he's a big part of what we want to do with the two-receiver, two-tight-end set. Tim hasn't blocked as well inside. Once you're that H-back and you don't block, now they say you're just another receiver and teams start going nickel. If they do that at least you have to be a good pass catcher. Tim's a good player. He just hasn't played as well as he needs to lately," Smith said. Wright may have to compete with TE Luke Stocker for a roster spot if he does not improve his play.

Buccaneers | Austin Seferian-Jenkins may be behind

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 13:23:56 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins may not receive much playing time in the short term, although he's likely to be the team's long-term answer at the position. He will not take part in the team's offseason program, which could put him behind in the competition, and TEs Brandon Myers, Timothy Wright and Luke Stocker all have more experience.

Fantasy Tip: Wright made nice strides last season in this offense, but remember, Lovie Smith is now head coach, and tight ends have never been a big part of his offenses. If anything, the tight ends on roster will give Josh McCown a nice red zone option. Seferian-Jenkins is an intriguing player, but don't overspend on him as your TE2.

Buccaneers | Timothy Wright could have big role

Fri, 13 Jun 2014 10:42:17 -0700

Tampa Bay Buccaneers TE Timothy Wright could have a big role in the offense despite the offseason additions of TEs Brandon Myers and Austin Seferian-Jenkins, according to head coach Lovie Smith. Smith said that he has "big plans" for Wright this year.

Fantasy Tip: Wright was a surprise in his rookie season as a nice red zone target for Mike Glennon. However, Glennon won't be the starter and tight ends have never been heavily utilized in a Smith-run offense. Wright shouldn't be drafted as anything more than a midrange TE2.
