Tennessee Titans wide receiver Kendall Wright is going to surprise a lot of people in his rookie year, and he will be a solid producer for your fantasy football team. 

He's a sleek receiver with good speed, and he reminds me of DeSean Jackson and Percy Harvin. Jake Locker and Wright are going to turn the Titans' aerial attack into a dangerous unit in 2012.

Here's the fantasy rundown on Wright.

Latest News

Since Kenny Britt has been dealing with off-field issues and a knee problem, it's no surprise that Wright is going to be starting Week 1's contest against the New England Patriots.

According to John Glennon:

Munchak says rookie Kendall Wright will be starting this wk.

As good as Britt can be at times, I don't expect Wright to relinquish his starting spot any time this season. He's going to be a good one. 

 

Split Situation

Wright should see plenty of action this season for the Titans. He's going to be a big part of what the team does in the passing game, and I expect to see him see at least six-to-eight targets per game. 

 

Season Stat Projections

49 catches for 715 yards and four touchdowns (ESPN.com).

 

Wide Receivers to Select Before Wright

Santonio Holmes, Sidney Rice, Lance Moore, Randy Moss and Laurent Robinson.

 

Wide Receivers to Select After Wright

Greg Little, Michael Floyd, Jon Baldwin, Davon Bess, James Jones and Eddie Royal.

 

Summary

Wright is going to surprise a lot of people in 2012. If you can draft him after Round 10, you've got yourself a steal.
