  • Matthew Wright Not A Strong Fantasy Option In Week 12

    Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Matthew Wright has made five of his seven field goals over the past two games. Wright has taken over kicking duties for the injured Chris Boswell (groin) and will do so for at least the next two games before Boswell is eligible to be activated. Wright will kick against the Indianapolis Colts on the road in Week 12's Monday night game. The Colts are a neutral matchup for fantasy kickers as they are allowing the 14th-fewest fantasy points per game to the position thus far. Wright will not be a recommended fantasy option heading into Week 12.

  • Matthew Wright Hits Three FGs In Week 11

    Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Matthew Wright made all three of his field goals and added three extra points in a 37-30 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11. Wright made field goals from 42, 30, and 34 yards on the afternoon, making him five of seven on field goals since joining the Steelers ahead of Week 10. Wright will kick in at least two more games as Chris Boswell (groin) heals up on injured reserve. The Pittsburgh kicker will take on the Indianapolis Colts on the road in Week 12.

  • Matthew Wright A Low-End Option In Week 11

    Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Matthew Wright will appear in his second game in place of the injured Chris Boswell (groin) in Week 11 against the Cincinnati Bengals. Wright made two of his four field goals for the Steelers in Week 10 while chipping in two extra points. In Week 11, the veteran kicker draws a great matchup against a Bengals defense that is allowing the most fantasy points per game to the kicker position in 2022. That being said, Wright will be held back by a Pittsburgh offense that is averaging just the 28th-most yards per game in 2022. Treat Wright as a low-end fantasy potion heading into Week 11.

  • Matthew Wright Will Kick Again In Week 11

    Pittsburgh Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin said that kicker Matthew Wright will serve as the team's kicker again in Week 11 against the division-rival Cincinnati Bengals. Chris Boswell (groin) is on Injured Reserve and will miss at least three more games. Wright missed two of his four field-goal attempts in the Week 10 win over the New Orleans Saints but made both of his extra-point tries. In three games this year, Wright has made five of his eight field-goal attempts and has made all 10 of his extra points. But if the 26-year-old misses any more kicks this weekend, there's a chance Pittsburgh will go in another direction before Boswell returns. Fantasy managers should be able to find more reliable streaming options this week.

  • Matthew Wright Misses Two Field Goals In Week 10

    Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Matthew Wright made two of his four field goals and both of his extra points in a 20-10 win over the New Orleans Saints in Week 10. Wright took over as Pittsburgh's kicker after the team had to place Chris Boswell on the injured reserve with a groin injury earlier in the week. Wright has now appeared in three games in 2022 (two with the Kansas City Chiefs), making five of his eight field goals. He will presumably be Pittsburgh's kicker for at least the next three weeks while Boswell's on injured reserve.

  • Matthew Wright Not A Recommended Fantasy Option In Week 10

    Pittsburgh Steelers kicker Matthew Wright will take on the New Orleans Saints at home in Week 10. The Steelers placed regular kicker Chris Boswell (groin) on the injured reserve earlier in the week and signed Wright off of the Kansas City Chiefs' practice squad to replace him. The Saints are allowing the second-most fantasy points per game to opposing kickers in 2022 but a struggling Pittsburgh offense makes Wright a shaky fantasy option heading into Week 10.
