2013 Fantasy Football Preview: Tennessee Titans' Kendall Wright

The Tennessee Titans have one of the best young receiving core in the country, but with the recent 2013 NFL Draft addition of Justin HunterKendall Wright has left the spotlight.

The Titans have the go-to receiver Nate Washington, the potential star receiver Kenny Britt and then the young addition, Hunter. But where does that leave Wright? Exactly where he wants to be, and that’s exactly why you should draft him for your 2013 Fantasy Football team.

While the defenses are double-teaming and scheming around the other receivers, Wright will be in one-on-one situations very often. One-on-one was where Wright had the most success in college at Baylor with Robert Griffin III at quarterback. He would burst down the outside and catch it over the top of defenders for the touchdown. This is exactly how he will play for the Titans this season.

Titans’ quarterback Jake Locker has a better offensive line to protect him, which will give him time to make throws downfield to Wright. More opportunities for the quarterback means more opportunities for Fantasy points for a receiver, especially one who specializes in long routes.

Expect multiple touchdowns and big yardage games from Wright. He is too talented and the Tennessee offense has improved far too much for him not to succeed.

Everything is falling into place for Wright to have a breakout NFL season. Expect big things from the second-year receiver. He shouldn’t be your first wide receiver choice, but could be a steal late in your Fantasy draft that determines whether you win or lose.
