The Tennessee Titans get a short week before they will take on the Indianapolis Colts on Thursday Night Football. The Titans are coming off an embarrassing loss to the Jaguars, while the Colts were blown out at home by the St. Louis Rams.
Receiver Kendall Wright has quickly picked up some steam as the Titans' main playmaker. In his last three eight games, he's caught at least five balls, but hasn't hit paydirt in that span. They line him up in the slot and he runs a wide variety of routes.
Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick is going to start against the Colts and that's probably a good thing. In his two previous starts, Wright was targeted a total of 17 times, catching 11 of them for 127 yards combined. Furthermore, Fitz threw the ball 41 times in one of those games, and on top of that the Titans haven't been able to run the ball much these days.
Fantasy impact: There are a lot of positives for Wright here. Fantasy owners in PPR leagues probably should give him a long look as a guy that can catch six or seven balls while flirting with 100 yards. He will be tough to start in standard leagues, though.
