Jarius Wright is probable for Week 3 against the 49ers. We break down the fantasy implications.
Minnesota Vikings WR Jarius Wright (ankle) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the San Francisco 49ers. The rookie WR hasn't played since the fourth preseason game, but he got a full week in of practice and is set to make his NFL debut this week.
Fantasy Impact: With Jerome Simpson sitting out a suspension, Wright could see a decent amount of snaps on Sunday, but he's firmly behind Percy Harvin, Michael Jenkins, Kyle Rudolph and Devin Aromashodu for receiving targets. Simpson comes back next week, making that one more hungry mouth for targets. Wright isn't a fantasy option this year, but keeper leagues may be keeping an eye on him.
