Latest Updates

 

Kendall Wright, Nate Washington held in check Week 12


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Titans wideouts Kendall Wright and Nate Washington were held in check during Sunday's defeat to the Eagles in Week 12.

Wright was held without a grab for the first three quarters. He came down with a 28-yard reception with 9:35 renaming in the game for his only catch of the day. He was targeted six times. Washington caught four of the six passes thrown his way for 63 yards.


Titans WR Nate Washington burns his former team


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(11/18/2014) Titans wideout Nate Washington blew by Steelers corner William Gay on a double move shortly before halftime Monday and hauled in an 80-yard touchdown from Zach Mettenberger. He celebrated en route to the end zone, clearly enjoying burning his former team for his first touchdown this year.

Washington drew just two targets. He'll visit the Eagles in Week 12.


Titans list just three on injury report for game against Ravens


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) The Titans are in fine physical shape heading into their Week 10 game in Baltimore. Only three players are in their Friday injury report, including nose tackle Sammie Lee Hill (hamstring) and wideout Nate Washington (shoulder), both of whom are questionable. Cornerback Coty Sensabaugh (knee) is probable.

Titans WR Nate Washington seeking larger role during second half


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/3/2014) Titans wide receiver Nate Washington, who is fresh off his most productive performance of the season, is hoping his production picks up in the second half of the season, according to the Tennessean.

"I haven't been a part of the offense like I have been in the past and I need to find a way to put myself in a better position to help us win," Washington said. "I feel like the plays that have been coming my way, I do need to make a better effort at trying to make something happen with those plays. It's whatever I can do to help the team win, whether they need to throw me the ball or not."

Washington came down with four receptions for 68 yards against Houston in Week 8. He has 17 catches for 237 yards and no touchdowns through eight games.


Titans' Nate Washington expected to be ready after the bye


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/27/2014) Titans coach Ken Whisenhunt said Monday wide receiver Nate Washington will be held out of practice this week after suffering a shoulder injury Sunday against the Texans. However, he should be OK to return after the bye in time for Tennessee's next game Week 10 against the Ravens.

How did Zach Mettenberger use his receivers?


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) The Titans threw the ball surprisingly often in Week 8, as rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger put the ball in the air 41 times in his NFL debut against the Texans. That meant there were a lot of scoring opportunities to go around for Titans receivers.

Nate Washington and Kendall Wright led the way in the game, with 68 and 53 yards respectively, though neither player was near the team lead in targets in the game. It was actually Justin Hunter who led the team in that category, and despite hauling in just four passes for 31 yards, he also hauled in one of Mettenberger's scores.

This receiving trio has struggled with consistency given the team's quarterback issues, so it will be interesting to see how Mettenberger's ascension to the starting role impacts them. Given Sunday's usage, Hunter looks like he might be the player with the most upside out of the three, though we need to see more before considering any dependable Fantasy options. 


Titans WR Nate Washington suffers AC joint sprain Week 8


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Titans wide receiver Nate Washington suffered an AC joint sprain late in Sunday's loss vs. Houston, according to The Tennessean. Washington suffered the injury while making a 43-yard catch early in the fourth quarter.

Washington would not make another catch the rest of the game, but he finished with a team-high 68 receiving yards in rookie quarterback Zach Mettenberger's first career start. Washington caught all four of his targets.

The Titans are on a bye Week 9 before returning to action Week 10 at Baltimore.


Report: Titans WR Nate Washington could be on trade block


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/22/2014) Titans wide receiver Nate Washington has drawn some trade interest recently and could be on the trade block, NFL.com reports.

Washington recently lost his starting job to Justin Hunter and is making $4.8 million in the final year of a six-year contract signed in March 2009. He has tallied 13 receptions for 169 yards in seven games.


Nate Washington, Kendall Wright barely targeted Week 6


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/12/2014) Titans wideouts Nate Washington and Kendall Wright were afterthoughts in the team's Week 6 win over Jacksonville. Washington caught both his targets for 23 yards, while Wright secured his only target for 6 yards.

It was a huge disappointment for Wright, who caught 11 passes against the Jaguars last year and was coming off a two-touchdown game Week 5. Washington and Wright visit the Redskins in Week 7.


Several Titans make small contributions in Sunday loss


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) Wide receiver Nate Washington led a group of minor contributors for the Titans against Cleveland on Sunday with four catches for 57 yards. He was targeted seven times.

Also pitching in were tight end Chase Coffman with two receptions for 18 yards and running back Leon Washington with a snag for seven yards. Running back Bishop Sankey added 27 yards on eight carries while wideout Dexter McCluster had 10 yards on three carries and caught a pass.


Titans receivers not worth your time until QB play improves


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) Fantasy owners of any of the Titans' wide receivers have to be hoping Jake Locker returns soon, after the poor showing Charlie Whitehurst and Zach Mettenberger put up in Week 4.

Against the Colts, only Kendall Wright put together anything close to his usual numbers. And, frankly five catches for 55 yards isn't much to write home about. Justin Hunter and Nate Washington were limited to just one catch apiece, numbers that are sure to cause their Fantasy ownership numbers to continue to dwindle.

At this point, Delanie Walker is the only member of the Titans' receiving corps you want to be relying on. It will be hard to start Kendall Wright with Whitehurst throwing to him, and Hunter and Washington might not be worth owning at this point. 


Uncertainty makes Titans WR a bad play


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/26/2014) Titans quarterback Jake Locker was able to practice on a limited basis Friday, a sign of improvement from a wrist injury that had kept him out the previous two days. However, his availability is still in question for Week 4 against the Colts, and his potential absence casts a shadow of doubt over each one of his receiving options.

The Titans have thrown the ball plenty to their trio of wide receivers (15-plus targets for each through three games), but Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter and Nate Washington have all failed to really make an impact. And that was with Locker under center. For all of his faults, Locker has to be considered a better option that Charlie Whitehurst, who has not started a game since 2011 and has a career 5.2 yards-per-attempt mark under his belt.

You've likely been disappointed with the play of your Titans' receivers so far, assuming you haven't cut them yet. Given the uncertainty surrounding their quarterback spot, it is hard to see things getting much better in Week 4.

 


Nate Washington has four catches in opener


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) Titans veteran receiver Nate Washington finished with four catches for 59 yards during a 26-10 win Week 1 at Kansas City. He was targeted six times and his longest catch went 19 yards.

The Titans are back in action Week 2 vs. Dallas.


Nate Washington scores, racks up 94 receiving yards in preseason tuneup


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Titans wide receiver Nate Washington found the end zone and fell just six yards from cracking the century mark during Saturday's preseason game against the Falcons.

Washington came down with a 63-yard touchdown pass from Jake Locker in the second quarter. His next catch came during the third quarter for a gain of 31 yards. He was targeted five times and finished with three catches for 94 yards and a touchdown.

Nate Washington's roster spot looks safe


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(4/6/2014) Titans receiver Nate Washington's roster spot looks safe despite his $4.8 million base salary, reports The Tennessean. Washington, 30, caught 58 passes for 919 yards and three touchdowns last season.

He'll be the No. 3 wideout behind Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter.


Nate Washingon 'likely' to return to Titans


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/27/2014) Titans receiver Nate Washington "appears likely" to return to the team in 2014 after catching 58 passes for 919 yards and three touchdowns, reports the Tennessean. Washington would count $4.8 million against the cap.

Washington is looking forward to playing for coach Ken Whisenhunt again. Washington, 30, was with the Steelers for two of Whisenhunt's three seasons as Pittsburgh's offensive coordinator.

“I think he loves me and I love that guy,” Washington told the paper. “But it's a business. Could he sit here today and tell you he's going to get rid of me? I'm pretty sure he couldn't. And I could never sit here and tell you that I'm gone.

“At the end of the day, I love coach Whisenhunt and I love the Titans. I feel the same amount of love coming back from the Titans and the city. So whatever (the future) brings, it brings. But I will guarantee that my preparation for the city and this season will be there.”


Nate Washington, Michael Griffin could return to Titans in 2014


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/21/2014) Titans receiver Nate Washington and safety Michael Griffin could return to the team in 2014 despite each having a hefty salary, reports the Tennessean.

Griffin is owed $6.2 million in 2014, and Washington is scheduled to earn $4.8 million. Despite that, the report says both are expected back for next season.


Nate Washington finishes with 919 yards


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) Titans wide receiver Nate Washington caught just two passes in Week 17, in a 16-10 win over the Texans. He did have one long reception among them, as he finished with 39 yards and a long of 32.

Washington put the finishing touches on by far the second-best season of his career. His 58 receptions for 919 yards represent his best totals since 2011.  


Nate Washington looks to keep rolling in Week 17


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/27/2013) Titans wide receiver Nate Washington is enjoying his best stretch of the season having racked up 209 yards on 13 catches over the last two games, entering Week 17 against the Texans.

 Washington has been excellent recently, but the Texans have done a pretty good job against wide receivers this season. Houston allows 18.8 Fantasy points per game to wide receivers, the ninth-lowest total in the league, and Washington was held to just 50 yards on three receptions in their last matchup.

Washington has an outside chance to reach 1,000 yards on the season, but would need to match his season-best game while sitting at 880 yards for the season. He remains more of a low-end Fantasy option for Week 17, despite his solid run. 


Nate Washington carries Titans' passing game


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2013) Titans wide receiver Nate Washington, who rebounded from a nine-game drought in which he averaged 2.7 catches for 37.7 yards with seven catches for 97 yards last week, took another step forward Week 16 at Jacksonville.

He was the extent of the Titans' passing game on a day when quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for only 181 yards, contributing 117 of them on six catches, including a 30-yard touchdown that put the Titans ahead for good in the fourth quarter. His eight targets led the team, but only by one over tight end Delanie Walker, who had four catches for 35 yards, and wide receiver Kendall Wright, who had four catches for 22 yards.

The last time Washington had back-to-back 90-yard performances, he followed them up with three catches for 30 yards Week 5 against the Chiefs. He'll hope to avoid a similar fate Week 17 against the Texans.


Repeat a long shot for Nate Washington


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/18/2013) After averaging 2.7 catches for 37.7 yards in his previous nine games, Titans wide receiver Nate Washington stepped up with seven catches for 92 yards in Week 15. But that was in a surprise shootout against the Cardinals -- an overtime game in which quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick threw for a career-high 402 yards. In Week 16 at Jacksonville, the Titans should be in for more typical numbers.

Take their 29-27 loss against Jacksonville in Week 10. Granted, the Jaguars haven't been the same team all season, but that's about when they became what they are now. In that game, Fitzpatrick threw for 264 yards and two touchdowns. Washington caught three passes for 29 yards.

With Kendall Wright, Delanie Walker, Justin Hunter and even Chris Johnson making significant contributions in the passing game, Washington has become something of an afterthought. When Fitzpatrick throws for 402 yards, yeah, he's relevant in Fantasy. But otherwise, not so much.

Don't be fooled into starting him this week.


Nate Washington goes for 92 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Titans receiver Nate Washington caught seven passes for 92 yards in the Week 15 loss to Arizona. He was targeted nine times, third on the team, as Tennessee passed 58 times.

Washington narrowly missed his third 100-yard game. He had a long reception of 33 yards and made other pretty grabs, stretching for an 18-yarder along the sideline.

Washington visits the Jaguars in Week 16.


Titans receivers struggle in Denver


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Titans WR Nate Washington, WR Michael Preston and TE Visanthe Shiancoe struggled to get going Week 14 against the Broncos. 

Washington played the biggest role, catching two passes for 24 yards. He finished second on the team in receiving yards. Preston caught just one pass for 6 yards. Shiancoe caught two passes, but picked up just 2 yards.

They'll take on the Cardinals Week 15.


Nate Washington breaks through against Colts


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(12/1/2013) Titans wideout Nate Washington hadn't done much of anything since Week 4, so the game Sunday at Indianapolis proved to be a bit of a renaissance for him.

Washington was kept out of the end zone for the eighth straight game, but he did catch five passes for 81 yards, his largest totals in both departments since late September.

He got off to a strong start with a 31-yard reception in the first quarter and looked to be set for a monster game with four catches for 68 yards at halftime. But he managed just one snag after intermission. Washington will seek to put two good halves together next Sunday at Denver.


Nate Washington held in check in Week 12


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/24/2013) Titans wide receiver Nate Washington failed to get going as he was held under 50 receiving yards during Sunday's win over the Raiders in Week 12.

Washington had a caught a 13-yard pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick and a 16-yard reception all in the opening drive of the game. He only had three catches the rest of the way as he finished the game with five receptions for 45 yards on six targets in a 23-19 victory.

Washington will look to get back on track in Week 13 at Indianapolis.
