After an extremely disappointing Week 14, where he caught only two of three targets for 17 yards, Kendall Wright bounced back in a big way. As Tennessee battled Arizona in a high scoring contest, quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick targeted Wright 20 times and 12 of those passes were complete for 150 yards. This was a fantastic performance from Wright, but he failed to find the endzone as has been the case throughout the 2013 season. Wright is now twelfth in the NFL in targets with 125, and seventh in the NFL in receptions with 85, yet has only two scores. Of the 26 NFL players with 70 or more catches in 2013, Kendall Wright and Harry Douglas are the only ones with less than three touchdown catches. Touchdown totals are usually fickle, so Wright will be a great 2014 draft target, much like Antonio Brown this year after a low 2012 touchdown total. Wright will be a reliable option again this week as the Titans take on Jacksonville.
