Kendall_Wright

Kendall Wright has had a down year after being pegged as a potential breakout star in the offseason.  While you can’t blame Wright for the Titans quarterback mess, he still has not lived up to anyone’s expectations.  Wright has caught 39 passes for 403 yards and only four touchdowns this season–this would not make you think to put him in your starting lineup this week–well think again.

Starting tight end Delanie Walker is expected to miss Monday nights game against the Steelers due to a concussion.  This opens up targets to other Titans receivers, and coach Ken Whisenhunt expects someone to step up.  Since rookie Zach Mettenberger has taken over Tennessee’s quarterback duties, Wright has never had less than five targets in any game.  That number will only increase with Walker’s injury.  If you have watched any of the Titans games, you can see Mettenberger begin to develop a chemistry and a feel for the receivers, and the offense in general.

The Steelers defense is obviously not what it once was–ranking in the middle of the pack in passing yards allowed per game, and they are tied for the 5th most passing touchdowns allowed this season.  While I have seen most experts predict this to be a defensive battle, I think the opposite–it will be a high scoring affair and Kendall Wright will breakout this week with at least five catches and one touchdown.  So if you are a Wright owner and are debating whether or not to put him in, start him and just blame me if it doesn’t work out.
