Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 10: Tim Wright

Otto Greule Jr

The Buccaneers have gotten a nice boost in the receiving game from an unlikely source in undrafted rookie Tim Wright. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers tight end Tim Wright has provided rookie Mike Glennon a capable target since earning his first start of the season back in Week 6.

Since the team lost Mike Williams to a season-ending hamstring injury, Wright has stepped up and produced as an effective secondary target behind Vincent Jackson. In Williams' three missed games this season, Wright has averaged five catches for 66 yards and just under a touchdown per game. Glennon's targeting him just over seven times per contest.

Those aren't numbers that jump off the page, but considering only five tight ends are averaging more yards per game throughout the season, it's a pace worth monitoring.

Fantasy Spin: The Dolphins are giving up 61.6 yards per game to tight ends so far this season, and though those figures are skewed after being torched by Jimmy Graham in prime time, Wright and the Buccaneers are capable of piling on as well.

The Buccaneers have turned into an offense that frequently airs it out, with Glennon averaging over 40 attempts per game since being handed the starting job. If there is fantasy wealth to be had in the passing game as a result, Wright is in line to cash-in even if he is only a beneficiary of volume going forward. With the likes of Rob Gronkowski and Jordan Cameron on byes, owners could do far worse than starting Wright this week.
