2014 Outlook: Solid/Safe PickLast updated on Jul-11-2014 by Jeb Gorham
Kendall Wright is a solid WR2 and a better WR3 pick. His 158 grabs over his first two seasons look good on paper, but (as a slot receiver) might not be what you are looking for. His low yards per reception and low TD totals make him a slightly less coveted fantasy play. Ken Whisenhunt likes Wright and will work to get him involved, so the former Baylor Bears WR might be worth a better look this season. The big downside is Wright may only produce starter-quality stats in PPR leagues and will be reliant upon an injury-prone QB and an undependable offense.
Editor's note: Wright's high-volume reception total will be difficult to replicate, especially if he cannot form the same type of chemistry with Locker. He is the safest fantasy WR on the team though.
Zach Mettenberger has been taking the leadership role for the Titans this offseason. He has been organizing team workouts in Nashville and his teammates seem to be really impresses by his maturity. "Our quarterback, Zach, is a young guy and he is stepping up. He is more than ready to play, and we all are following Zach, just going out there and getting him ready and running the things he wants to run, some of the things he wants to do. It's rained a couple of times when we've been throwing, but that didn't stop us. We just kept going,' WR Kendall Wright said. "I think we all have a lot of respect for Zach. With him trying to be the leader, it is a good thing. And he is going to be the leader if he is going to be our quarterback. Just him texting us and everyone showing up, that's a good sign."Fantasy Analysis:
This is a great sign for Mettenberger's future in Tennessee. I do not believe they will draft Marcus Mariota. They have three options at this point. It's possible they trade for Philip Rivers. Otherwise, they draft USC DE Leonard Williams or trade back to another team that does want Mariota. Mettenberger gas garnered a lot of praise this offseason and right now is far and away the favorite to be the starter in 2015.

|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.|
