2015 Outlook: Quality BackupLast updated on Jun-13-2015 by Shawn Childs
After his breakthrough season in 2013 (94/1,079/2), Wright struggled to make an impact last year due a poor play by the Titans' offense and a hand injury that cost him a couple of games. Kendall only had one 100-yard receiving game and one game with more than nine targets. Wright is a solid possession receiver with 100-catch upside with a more dynamic offense. He flashed consistency in 2013 when he caught five catches or more in 12 of 16 games. The QB upgrade should increase his value again this year, but I'd think of him as an 80-catch guy for 900-plus yards with a handful of TDs. He has an upside WR3 skill set in 2015.
Justin Hunter is set to be in court on September 3 for preliminary hearings in his felonious assault case. His attorney Toby Vick is very confident in their case and believes it will "end well". "I can tell you I'm confident that Justin didn't do what he's been charged with and that I have significant concerns about the credibility of the accuser," Vick said. "I think our evidence will show, and I'm not going into specific details, that maybe even the group that includes the guy bringing the charges were the aggressors … There were a number of people involved and Justin is the only person that they identified. Here you have an NFL player — with what they believe to have deep pockets — identified when lots of things were going on in there. I think it's going to emerge that (Hunter and his friends) weren't even the aggressors."
Hopefully for Hunter's sake, his lawyer is right. Either way he could still face a suspension. Who knows with this bumbling commissioner? Hunter is battling for a starting job right now and it appears he's on the outside looking in. As of now, he appears to be behind Kendall Wright, Harry Douglas and even Hakeem Nicks. He is still competing with Dorial Green-Beckham for positioning on the depth chart. Hunter is not a lock to make the 53-man roster at this point.

|5.09||#5 World Ranked - After starting with 2 RB's and a QB thru 4 rounds, I needed to start building my WR depth. Wright is a rising PPR star who once again should get 90+ catches. It's hard to believe he won't improve on his horrible TD total from last year.|
