Description: Patriots backup tight end Tim Wright caught one pass for 15 yards in Week 17.
Insight: We expected more considering Rob Gronkowski didn't play. A missed opportunity for Wright to prove himself although the Patriots didn't really try very hard in this game.
 
12/28/2014 11:58:00 AM
Description: Patriots backup tight end Tim Wright will be a starter in Week 17.
Insight: The Pats have decided to sit Rob Gronkowski. Wright becomes a viable fantasy replacement.
 
Cold12/8/2014 9:34:00 AM
Description: Patriots backup tight end Tim Wright was a non-factor in the game against San Diego.
Insight: Tom Brady targeted him just twice and he came up empty. Wright has gone two games without a touchdown reception and he's total dependent on getting into the end zone for his fantasy value as he has just 24 reception for 232 yards this season.
 
11/17/2014 9:22:00 AM
Description: Patriots backup tight end Tim Wright caught one ball against Indianapolis, but it was for a touchdown.
Insight: The Patriots frequently used multiple tight ends in this one, but as a blocker for Jonas Gray.
 
Hot10/6/2014 10:43:00 AM
Description: Patriots tight end Tim Wright was very active Sunday night, catching all five targets for 85 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Wright seemed to be everywhere, but in fact, he was only out there for 19 of 86 plays. When he was out there he was a factor, but we'd like to see him out there more.
 
8/28/2014 10:59:00 PM
Description: Patriots tight end Tim Wright caught 4-of-6 targets for 43 yards in Thursday's preseason finale against the Giants.
Insight: Wright worked with the second-team offense and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. The new Patriots tight end has enough talent to earn more playing time with the starters, but as of Week 1, he is just one of many potential targets for Tom Brady.
 
8/26/2014 9:33:00 PM
Description: The Patriots have acquired Tim Wright and a 2015 fourth-round pick from the Buccaneers for Logan Mankins.
Insight: The deal clears up cap space for New England and gives its offense more flexibility. Wright is light for a tight end at 220 pounds but he may be able to serve in Aaron Hernandez' old role as the move tight end. He had 54 catches for 571 yards and five touchdowns as a rookie. It's unnecessary to target Wright in fantasy right now but he's another guy who will see targets. The Patriots receiving hierarchy is unclear after Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman.
 
8/5/2014 2:30:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers third-string tight end Tim Wright is being considered as a slot receiver.
Insight: Apparently the Bucs can't get enough tall receivers for their new quarterback. Wright played as a wideout at Rutgers and could make for another huge target for quarterback Josh McCown.
 
11/27/2013 5:05:00 PM
Description: According to Pat Yasinskas of espn.com, Buccaneers tight end Tim Wright is going to get every chance to be an every-down player with Tom Crabtree, Luke Stocker and Nate Byham all on injured reserve.
Insight: Wright had 106 yards and two scores on nine catches in Weeks 8-9 but he followed that up with two catches total in Weeks 10-11. He had eight catches and 75 yards on nine targets in his most recent game. He should be a top-15 tight end for the rest of the season.
 
Hot11/11/2013 10:53:00 AM
Description: Buccaneers tight end Tim Wright caught a touchdown for the second straight game in Week 9 at Seattle and has posted double-digit fantasy points over his last two games.
Insight: Wright is averaging six targets per game over the last four. He's become Mike Glennon's No. 2 target behind Vincent Jackson with Mike Williams out for the season.
 
11/3/2013 7:28:00 PM
Description: Buccaneers tight end Tim Wright caught a touchdown for the second straight game Sunday at Seattle.
Insight: Wright has a chance to be Mike Glennon's No. 2 target behind Vincent Jackson with Mike Williams out for the season. He should be a top-15 tight end the rest of the season.
