The rookie for the Vikings will be getting his 2nd straight start of the season with Percy Harvin most likely out again. In week 10 he caught 3 for 65 with a 3 yard TD on 5 targets. Now coming out of the bye the Vikes get the Bears who were just lit up by Kaepernick. The kid looked good and hopefully has a decent outing on Sunday.

Harvin definitely is out this week but from the Harvin thread there's speculation he will sit out week 13 as well.

I think that was the only game he was feautured in like that and he looked fairly decent out there. I wouldnt trust him at all though vs this bears d and i think hes in for a dud especially with the way Ponders been playing this year.Hes defiantly a talented guy to look out for in the future though maybe put him on yoour watch lists

I believe the general thought is that Wright will go back to irrelevance once Harvin returns.  So while he had a good game, owners don't see Wright's role or numbers being consistent in coming weeks.

Also Minnesota had a bye week right after that game.    Wright's ownership may have more had more of an uptick if the Vikings were playing the week after.

It has been said that part of Ponder's problem is that he zeros in on Harvin, and has trouble reading other options.   This is a possible reason for Rudolph's dropoff.   It was said that Ponder looked a little better when Harvin wasn't playing, and Rudolph's and Wright's numbers bear that theory out.

I think Wright has a great chance to produce these one or two weeks when Harvin may be out.  And it is possible that with the bye and the emergence of Wright, the field may stretch and Ponder may use better reads going forward even with Harvin playing.

His inactivation up to this point was a combination of: 1) some injuries he sustained during training camp. 2) He's a very similar player to Harvin. He's nowhere near as talented as Harvin is, but he's the same type of small, speedy slot guy. The Vikings coaching staff likes to keep Michael Jenkins out there for run blocking, even though he is absolutely no help for Ponder and at this point, Peterson could handle a small decrease in run support.

He's got talent, just hasn't gotten very many opportunities. Could be an interesting flier or somebody to keep an eye on if Harvin remains sidelined.

Another decent day yesterday ... ppr wise. 7 receptions on 10 targets. And I saw him just miss a touchdown on the side of the endzone.

If Percy is out again, I think he will be another decent play at GB.

As a vikings fan who watches every game, this guy will continue to be a big part of the offence, even with percy back.  Jerome simpson cannot catch at all, and this kid looks really good.  Hes fast and seems to have very good hands. This kid is the 3rd best option the vikings have 1) percy 2)rudolph 3)wright

He will be the slot machine again tomorrow at Lambo and should see plenty of targets as my beloved Vikes try to catch up with the Pack.
