  • Lions' Brock Wright: Catches two passes

    Wright caught both of his targets for 17 yards during Thursday's 21-20 win over Kansas City.

    Wright is the incumbent starter, but he logged only about 40 percent of the snaps while second-round draft pick Sam LaPorta commanded over 80. Already a touchdown-dependent fantasy option, Wright has little fantasy utility as a distant No. 2 tight end.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: Joined by high draft pick

    Wright sits atop a tight end depth chart that now features rookie Sam LaPorta, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

    Wright has served as the de facto No. 1 TE in Detroit since the team traded T.J. Hockenson to Minnesota midway through last season. Given Wright's limitations as a receiver and the underwhelming depth behind him, it was unsurprising that the Lions spent a second-round pick to add some upside to the group. However, given LaPorta's profile as a receiving specialist who can operate in the slot and out of the backfield, Wright may not see much of a dip in playing time as he specializes as an in-line blocking tight end.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: Signs contract with Detroit

    Wright, who had been an exclusive rights free agent, signed with the Lions on Monday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

    The same applies to Shane Zylstra, ensuring that the duo will reprise their roles in a Detroit tight end corps that also includes 2022 fifth-rounder James Mitchell and Derrick Deese. This past season, Wright logged a line of 18-216-4 on 24 targets over the course of 17 games. Added pass-catching opportunities could be in store for Wright in 2023, but there's still a solid chance that the Lions add TE depth in the coming weeks and months, quite possibly in the upcoming NFL Draft.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: Tendered by Detroit

    Wright was tendered by the Lions on Monday, paving the way for him to return to Detroit in 2023, Kyel Meinke of reports.

    Wright was one of five exclusive-rights free agents tendered by the Lions. The tight end had 18 catches for 216 yards and four touchdowns in 2022.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: No receptions in win

    Wright played 34 of the Lions' 60 snaps on offense and failed to reel in his lone target in Sunday's 20-16 win over the Packers.

    After Shane Zylstra scored three times in a Week 16 loss to the Panthers, Wright came through with two touchdowns in a Week 17 win over the Bears, but both tight ends came up empty in the season finale. While combining to play 56 snaps Week 18, Wright and Zylstra went without a catch, as third-stringer James Mitchell's seven-yard reception amounted to the only production from the position group. Even though his opportunities picked up following the trade of T.J. Hockenson to Minnesota in November, Wright finished the 2022 campaign with an unremarkable 18-216-4 receiving line on 24 targets over his 16 appearances. Wright is an exclusive-rights free agent this offseason and will most likely be retained, but expect the Lions to at least explore outside options at tight end this offseason rather than promising the 24-year-old the starting gig heading into 2023.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: Two scores against Chicago

    Wright caught three of four targets for 13 yards with two touchdowns during Sunday's 41-10 win over the Bears.

    Wright continues to make key plays for Detroit, but he is still not seeing enough volume to be worthy of fantasy consideration. The Notre Dame product will be a touchdown-dependent fantasy play in Week 18 against Green Bay.

  • Lions' Brock Wright: One target against Panthers

    Wright secured his only target for 11 yards during Saturday's loss to Carolina.

    On the heels of his game-winning, 51-yard touchdown scamper in Week 15, Wright saw no increase in his pass-catching role a week later. Instead, backup tight end Shane Zylstra stole the show with a trio of touchdown catches while finishing with six targets to Wright's one. All Lions tight ends will remain highly questionable fantasy plays when Detroit takes on Chicago in Week 17.
