Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington caught eight passes for a career-high 131 yards in the team's Week 3 victory over the San Diego Chargers. "Nate just balled out - that's all you can say," WR Kendall Wright said. "He's a captain and he kept leading us, by example and vocally. When you get a vet like that who's been in the game a long time, you listen to him because he's one of the hardest-working guys out there." Offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said QB Jake Locker believes in Washington.
Fantasy Tip: Washington has taken advantage of the opportunity that Kenny Britt's poor play has given him, and he's running with it. Washington should see plenty of looks from Locker now, making him a smart waiver wire pickup this week.

Updating a previous report, Tennessee Titans WR Kenny Britt once again was lackluster in the team's Week 3 win over the San Diego Chargers and had several drops. In a key late-game third-and-long situation, Britt was benched in favor of WR Justin Hunter, who wound up making the game-winning touchdown catch. Britt was on the sideline for all of the team's 10 plays during their 94-yard game-winning drive. WR Nate Washington, who had eight catches in the game, has become the team's top wideout, with WR Kendall Wright running more of the underneath routes. Britt said he was banged up with a sore neck and bruised rib from a scary tackle in the second quarter, but offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains said the receiver rotation on the final drive was a coaching decision. Britt was targeted five times in the game and didn't have a single catch, including two drops. "Kenny's still a physical specimen. He's going to be part of this offense," Loggains said. "We just have to clean that stuff up. We can't have dropped balls from anyone. We can't have penalties. We can be a good football team if we clean that stuff up. We're not going to be good if we're stupid."
Fantasy Tip: Britt put himself further into the doghouse in this game. If you own him, you might not be able to get away with dropping him yet, but he should be banished to your bench in Week 4. Washington and Wright are gaining steam for waiver wire acquisitions.

Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington had eight receptions for a game-high 131 yards in the Week 3 game against the San Diego Chargers. Washington was also targeted 10 times.
Fantasy Tip: Washington looks to have emerged as the top target for QB Jake Locker, who mostly ignored fellow WR Kenny Britt. Even so, Washington should only be considered as WR3/4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams going forward.

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (concussion) did not practice again Thursday, Sept. 19, but he doesn't think he has a concussion. Wright will visit with a doctor before practice Friday, Sept. 20, and the team expects him to be cleared to practice and play in Week 3 against the San Diego Chargers. WR Damian Williams will serve as the No. 3 receiver and WR Justin Hunter will be the fourth if Wright can't play.
Fantasy Tip: Wright should be a solid play against a weak Chargers secondary if he can suit up. If not, Kenny Britt and Nate Washington receive a boost in value for the week.

Tennessee Titans WR Kendall Wright (concussion) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 18.
Fantasy Tip: Wright was hit hard by cornerback Kareem Jackson last week, which likely left him concussed. He'll have to pass the league's concussion protocol to be cleared for this weekend's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Needless to say, Wright's status will be in question. If he doesn't play, Nate Washington and Justin Hunter will likely see more targets.

Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington (ankle) suffered an ankle injury in the team's preseason game Saturday, Aug. 24, and is not expected to return.
Tue, 02 Jul 2013 20:33:15 -0700
The Tennessee Titans would like to carry five wide receivers, though six wouldn't be out of the question. If they keep five, WRs Kenny Britt, Justin Hunter, Nate Washington, Damian Williams and Kendall Wright are likely to be kept, although that would mean WRs Marc Mariani (leg), Michael Preston and Kevin Walter would be on the outside looking in.

Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington sees similarities between QB Jake Locker and a young Pittsburgh Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger. "I was there in Ben's second year, and right away you kind of understood that even in his second year, he was gonna be a good quarterback, a guy that could make plays. That's the same thing with Jake," Washington said. "He's a guy who can make plays. I tell everybody all the time, this is football, and it's a gladiator sport, but it's not a dumb man's sport."
Locker appears more comfortable as the leader of the offense now that he's not competing for a starting job. The team has also retooled their entire offense under offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains in order to simplify the terminology to suit Locker. Locker has quickly adapted to the new system, and he has a much higher comfort level this year.
Fantasy Tip: This'll likely be a make or break season for Locker with the Titans. He has the weapons around him in the offense to be successful, and if he can remain healthy, he could put up some big numbers. He has one of the strongest arms in the league, so he'll need to limit his mistakes to be successful. If everything works out his way, he could be a very strong backup fantasy QB.

Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak and offensive coordinator Dowell Loggains both were happy with how the wide receivers performed during offseason workouts. "The receiving group has been fun to watch, the way they're working in the run game and the pass game. We've drafted guys at that position the last few years and there's great competition and camaraderie there. I think it was fun seeing [WR Kenny Britt] healthy and not having questions every day about his health, and seeing [WR Kendall Wright] lose 15 pounds and running out here like a guy who's going to break a lot of runs next year. [WR Nate Washington] has had the best camp he's had since he's been here. He's been a leader. He's been everything you could ask for," Munchak said.
