MyFantasyLeague availability: 59%

Wright hauled in five of his eight targets for 48 yards and touchdown in Week 8. The key here is that Mike Glennon looked Wright's way again after a quiet Week 7. Considering Mike Williams is out, expect the TE to remain rather high in the Bucs' passing game hierarchy. In fact, after Vincent Jackson, where else is the QB looking right now besides Wright? Sure, Tiquan Underwood and Mike James will get targets, but Wright could be No. 2 in the category going forward. Facing Seattle in Week 9 is hardly ideal, but he'll work in a pinch with a workable Miami matchup to follow.

MyFantasyLeague availability: 55%

The Titans are nothing special as a fantasy option, though their seven fumble recoveries rank seventh and they're middle of the pack in other notable categories. That's obviously not the reason for this call. Rams quarterback Kellen Clemens is. The game is in St. Louis (so no road crowd help), but Clemens -- threw two interceptions against the Seahawks -- will be working on a short week. He's also not very good.
