Houston Texans WR Nate Washington (hamstring) and WR Cecil Shorts (shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 7, and have been ruled out for the Week 5 game against the Indianapolis Colts.
Fantasy Tip: Kevin Mumphrey ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) and Jaelen Strong ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) will receive bigger roles on offense because of the injuries the team has at the position. They have not seen much playing time this season and should not be fantasy options for owners.
Tue, 06 Oct 2015 16:16:17 -0700
Houston Texans WR Nate Washington (hamstring) missed practice Tuesday, Oct. 6.
Fantasy Tip: Washington ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) left the Texans' Week 4 contest with the hamstring injury that caused him to miss practice. It's not the most encouraging sign that Washington isn't practicing two days before gameday. Look for better options at the wide receiver position on FantasyScore.
Mon, 05 Oct 2015 16:28:55 -0700
Houston Texans WR Nate Washington (hamstring) did not participate in the team's walkthrough Monday, Oct. 5.
Fantasy Tip: Washington suffered the injury in the last game and appears to be questionable for the game against the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Oct. 8. Washington has played well early in the season, but owners may want to look for other options because the injury may affect Washington.
Mon, 05 Oct 2015 11:34:25 -0700
Houston Texans WR Nate Washington (hamstring) is considered day-to-day because of the hamstring injury he suffered in Week 4.
Fantasy Tip: Washington will not have much time to recover since the team plays the Indianapolis Colts Thursday, Oct. 8. Owners will have a better idea of his status later in the week, but he has been off to a solid start this season.
Sun, 04 Oct 2015 10:59:53 -0700
Houston Texans WR Nate Washington (hamstring) suffered an apparent hamstring injury during the team's Week 4 game.
Fantasy Tip: Washington ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) has been off to a solid start with his new team, but this injury could hurt his fantasy value. Owners should avoid Washington for the time being.
Fri, 18 Sep 2015 15:47:28 -0700
Houston Texans WR Nate Washington (abdomen) fully participated in practice Friday, Sept. 18, and is listed as probable for the Week 2 game against the Carolina Panthers.
Fantasy Tip: Washington ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) should continue to have a solid role in the passing game after he recorded 105 yards in the first game of the season. Washington could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore looking to save some money.
Thu, 17 Sep 2015 15:20:48 -0700
Houston Texans WR Nate Washington (abdomen) fully participated in practice Thursday, Sept. 17.
Fantasy Tip: Washington ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) led the team in receiving yards in Week 1 with 105 yards on six catches. Washington could be a cheaper option for an owner on FantasyScore because he should see plenty of playing time against the Carolina Panthers in Week 2.
Wed, 16 Sep 2015 16:11:20 -0700
Houston Texans WR Nate Washington (abdomen) was listed as a limited participant in practice Wednesday, Sept. 16.
Fantasy Tip: Washington ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) saw 11 targets and hauled in six catches for 105 yards in Week 1. He and Cecil Shorts are second and third, respectively, in the receiving pecking order behind DeAndre Hopkins in Houston. The Texans have already made a QB switch heading into Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers. Counting on another 11 targets from Ryan Mallett would be a mistake.
Fri, 24 Jul 2015 12:49:15 -0700
Houston Texans WR Nate Washington is projected to be the No. 2 wide receiver behind WR DeAndre Hopkins and ahead of WR Cecil Shorts, according to Tania Ganguli of ESPN.com.
Fantasy Tip: Foster and Hopkins are really the only two Texans worth starting on fantasy rosters. Washington will make a big play here and there, but he shouldn't be viewed as more than a WR5, especially with what could very well be underachieving quarterback play.
Wed, 17 Jun 2015 12:37:37 -0700
Houston Texans WR Nate Washington has performed well this offseason, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.
Fantasy Tip: Washington will at least play behind DeAndre Hopkins and Cecil Shorts, and could also end up behind rookie Jaelen Strong and/or others. He has minimal fantasy value and is more of a waiver wire pickup.
Wed, 01 Apr 2015 13:39:21 -0700
Houston Texans WR Nate Washington is expected to compete with WRs Damaris Johnson, DeVier Posey and Keshawn Martin for the team's No. 3 receiver spot in 2015 behind WRs DeAndre Hopkins and Cecil Shorts.
Wed, 01 Apr 2015 13:32:54 -0700
Free-agent WR Nate Washington (Titans) signed a one-year deal with the Houston Texans worth $1 million, including $30,000 guaranteed, Wednesday, April 1.
Fantasy Tip: Washington isn't necessarily a pushover in the Texans' offense. Houston already has DeAndre Hopkins and Cecil Shorts, but Washington is a good, downfield target that could provide some value mainly in standard scoring leagues.
Tue, 02 Dec 2014 14:52:07 -0800
Tennessee Titans WR Derek Hagan is likely to join WRs Kendall Wright and Nate Washington as one of the top-three receivers now that WR Justin Hunter (spleen) is done for the year, starting in Week 14 against the New York Giants. Hagan had been working on special teams and as the team's fourth wideout. He played 32 snaps on offense and caught two passes for 39 yards in Week 13. WR Kris Durham is a young alternative, but the team isn't very high on him, he's not fast, and he's been inactive for 10 games. In the two games Durham was active, he didn't even play a single snap.
Fantasy Tip: Even though the Giants defense is vulnerable in the secondary, Hagan ($3,000) is a desperation play at FantasyScore because of the team's uncertainty at quarterback.
Fri, 07 Nov 2014 12:23:48 -0800
Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington (shoulder) fully participated in practice Friday, Nov. 7, and is listed as questionable for Week 10.
Fantasy Tip: Washington has not been a consistent option for fantasy owners this season, which does not make him the best option to start this week. Washington only costs $3,000 on FantasyScore, but owners should consider spending a little more money for a better option.
Thu, 06 Nov 2014 13:24:54 -0800
Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington (shoulder) was limited in practice for the second straight day Thursday, Nov. 6.
Fantasy Tip: Washington ($3,000) is at the bottom of the barrel for wide receivers at FantasyScore. He could be questionable for the game against the Baltimore Ravens. He isn't a strong option for your lineups, especially with rookie Zach Mettenberger leading the offense.
Wed, 05 Nov 2014 12:08:50 -0800
Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington (undisclosed) was limited in practice Wednesday, Nov. 5. However, head coach Ken Whisenhunt is optimistic about Washington playing this weekend.
Mon, 27 Oct 2014 00:27:52 -0700
Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington has been made available for trade, and sources also indicate LB Wesley Woodyard is available.
Wed, 22 Oct 2014 19:50:37 -0700
The Tennessee Titans have been fielding calls from teams for WR Nate Washington, who recently lost his starting job to WR Justin Hunter. Washington is in the final year of a six-year, $26.8 million contract. He is making $4.8 million this season.
Fantasy Tip: As long as Washington is in Nashville, FantasyScore owners will want to avoid him. However, if he should land in a more favorable spot with another team, he could re-emerge as a viable fantasy option.
Fri, 10 Oct 2014 19:06:34 -0700
Tennessee Titans WR Justin Hunter displaced WR Nate Washington as the No. 2 receiver this past week. He led the team with 66 of 68 offensive snaps in Week 5 against the Cleveland Browns, while Washington managed to play just 48 snaps.
Fantasy Tip: Hunter is a deep play threat, but unless he has a big game in Week 6 to follow up his solid Week 5 performance, FantasyScore owners will want to avoid him. Play wait-and-see with Hunter for now.
Fri, 06 Jun 2014 13:42:08 -0700
Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington is in the best shape of his life, according to wide receivers coach Shawn Jefferson. "He's a stud. Man, he's a pro. He's leading the group right now and he seems to be in the best shape of his life. He has been making plays out here from Day One. Right now, he's in midseason form. And the group goes as he goes."
Fri, 06 Jun 2014 11:36:57 -0700
Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington is in the best shape of his life, according to receivers coach Shawn Jefferson. Jefferson added that Washington has become a leader in the locker room and is in midseason form.
Fantasy Tip: Itís best to take Jeffersonís praise with a grain of salt at this point. Washington could still end up being the teamís No. 3 option behind Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter, though Washington may be the teamís best deep threat. Consider him no more than a low-end WR3 in standard leagues
Sun, 30 Mar 2014 17:26:09 -0700
Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington is expected to remain with the team even though he is scheduled to have a $4.8 million salary cap figure for 2014.
Thu, 27 Feb 2014 17:15:45 -0800

Mon, 23 Dec 2013 10:14:29 -0800

Sun, 03 Nov 2013 20:45:56 -0800
Tennessee Titans WR Nate Washington went without a catch in Week 9 against the St. Louis Rams, ending a streak of 85 consecutive games with at least one grab.
Mon, 23 Sep 2013 12:28:04 -0700
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.
Mon, 23 Sep 2013 12:20:48 -0700
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.
Sun, 22 Sep 2013 15:16:48 -0700
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.
Thu, 19 Sep 2013 16:23:24 -0700
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.
Wed, 18 Sep 2013 14:15:14 -0700
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.
Sat, 24 Aug 2013 18:55:34 -0700
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.
Tue, 25 Jun 2013 10:24:28 -0700
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.
Fri, 21 Jun 2013 13:30:18 -0700
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.
Thu, 20 Jun 2013 05:34:21 -0700
Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Munchak said WR Kendall Wright has lost 15 pounds and looks like he's going to break a lot of runs this year. Munchak also said WR Nate Washington has had his best camp with the team.
Wed, 24 Apr 2013 11:05:49 -0700

Wright averaged 9.8 yards per catch, and said the transition from college to the NJFL was made easier by watching WR Nate Washington. "I just watched what Nate did and tried to do the same things," Wright said.
