Kendall Wright ready to go for Sunday, but does he have fantasy value?

These fellas are ready for Sunday. - Frederick Breedon

Kendall Wright has been struggling with a knee injury for all of training camp, but he's ready to go for Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kendall Wright (knee)practiced on Wednesday and is expected to play against the Steelers. He was cleared on Wednesday and hasn't had any setbacks all summer.

Wright had a quiet rookie season with most of his work coming in the slot. His 64 receptions only yielded 626 yards while the Titans receiving corps was a little banged up. He will serve a similar role with the team in his second season.

Fantasy impact: Wright's knee injury has caused him to have a bit of a drop in fantasy drafts. Here's a look at how he's ADP has fallen:

When the news comes on Wright, it affects his value. He's had a downward trend and now that he's been cleared to play, his value should rise a bit. The Titans have an improved O-line and should have a strong running game, which could force defenses to keep seven or even eight in the box even on some passing downs. Wright should be a safe bet to duplicate his 64 catches and may flirt with 1,000 receiving yards. He's still more of a WR4 this week, though.
