Bottom Line

Barring an injury, it’s tough to see Wright gaining fantasy value in 2024.

He’ll enter the season behind De’Von Achane and Raheem Mostert – a pair of excellent ‘23 performers.

Wright’s Round 4 draft capital suggests the Fins see a future rotational piece. That’s backed up by his explosive tape. Still, for this year, he’s a late-round lotto ticket.

What We Learned Last Year

  • Speed is Wright’s calling card, and he really proved it in 2023.
    • 20% of his rushes went for 10+ yards.
    • All four of his rushing TDs were from 40+ yards out.
  • He also flashed some power to his game, averaging the most yards after contact of any rookie RB.
  • Wright proved capable in the receiving game. After totaling 8 catches from 2021-2022, he notched 22 last fall.
  • The 21-year-old enters the league fresh. He’s never carried the ball more than 146 times in a single season.

What to Expect in 2024

  • Wright underwent winter thumb surgery and was held out of pass-catching drills at the NFL Combine. He was fine for OTAs.
  • He blazed a 4.38 forty time and broad jumped 11’2 – particularly impressive at his size (5’10, 210 pounds).
  • The Dolphins traded up to land him in Round 4. He was the fifth RB off the board.
  • It’s a clear luxury pick for a Fins squad that has Raheem Moster and De’Vone Achane under contract beyond 2024.
    • That duo combined for 312 carries, 1,812 rushing yards, and 26 rushing TDs last year.
  • Miami’s O-line looks like a potential weak link after losing G Robert Hunt and C Connor Williams in free agency.

Jaylen Wright, RB MIA

Jaylen Wright brings more speed to Miami

The Dolphins added Tennessee RB Jaylen Wright in Round 4. Wright is one of the most explosive RBs in this year’s class. He averaged 6.2 yards per carry over his three college seasons, including a huge 7.4 yards per carry in 2023. 14.0% of Wright’s runs last year went for 15+ yards – the second-highest rate among this year’s top-25 RB prospects. So it wasn’t a big surprise when he blazed a 4.38-second 40 time at 5’11 and 210 pounds. Wright isn’t just a pure speed back, though. He runs with plenty of power, averaging 4.35 yards after contact per attempt last year – fifth among 157 qualifying RBs. Wright played in a spread offense at Tennessee that afforded him some huge running lanes. He’ll have a transition to make to his NFL scheme. But his combination of size, explosiveness, and long speed can’t be taught. Wright also proved capable in the passing game this past year, catching 22 balls for 141 yards. We see a lot of Lamar Miller in his game. Wright adds more speed to an explosive Dolphins offense, although he’ll be challenged to find playing time behind De’Von Achane and Raheem Mostert. Mostert recently inked an extension that keeps him in Miami through the 2025 season.

Tennessee RB Jaylen Wright confirmed faith in his long speed by running a 4.38-second 40 time at the Scouting Combine on Saturday. That gives him a speed score well above average for the position and ranked second among RBs at this year's Combine. Wright delivered limited college production, including just 8 receptions before last season (when he had 22). Wright averaged only 5.7 yards per catch for his college career but averaged 6.2 per rush. That increased each year, topping out at 7.4 per carry in 2023. Wright's draft capital will be interesting. Be careful not to overrate him in early best ball drafting.

Dynasty Write-up
Here’s one of the speediest RBs in the class. According to The Athletic’s Bruce Feldman, Wright hit a Tyreek Hill-like 23.6 MPH in practice. The third-year Volunteer averaged a ridiculous 7.4 yards per carry in 2023, with 19 of his 136 attempts going for 15+ yards (per PFF). He missed the Senior Bowl to rehab an undisclosed injury, but there's no lingering concern. He showed out at the Combine with a 4.38 forty time and a 38-inch vertical. Miami provides an ideal landing spot for creative usage in a proven offense.
