Titans | Teams interested in Nate Washington

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.

Titans | Justin Hunter moves up depth chart

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.

Titans | Nate Washington in great shape

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."

Titans | Nate Washington in best shape of his life

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

Titans | Nate Washington steps up

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.

Titans | Kenny Britt a non-factor

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.

Titans | Nate Washington puts on show

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.

Titans | Kendall Wright sits out

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.

Titans | Kendall Wright misses practice

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.

Titans | Might keep six wideouts

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.

Titans | Nate Washington compares Jake Locker to big-name QB

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.

Titans | Coaches happy with WR corps

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.
