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.

Nate Washington breaks one late


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/15/2013) Titans wide receiver Nate Washington was largely held in check in Week 11 against the Colts, but he nearly broke out late in a 30-27 win.  

Washington did not catch his first pass until early in the fourth quarter, but it wasn't until the team's final drive that he actually made an impact. Washington hauled in a 42-yard pass that could have gone for more as he nearly got behind the defense. He finished the game with two receptions for 53 yards on three targets.

Washington's role has been inconsistent this season, and he has been largely a nonfactor in the offense. That he was able to break loose for a big play is inspiring, heading into Week 12 against the Raiders. 


Nate Washington best left for the deeper formats


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/13/2013) Titans wide receiver Nate Washington, who has just two touchdowns this season and only three receptions in his last two games, gets to face a Colts team that has allowed seven touchdowns to opposing wide receivers in the last three games. 

Despite the stellar matchup, Washington should be left to the deeper (16-plus teams) Fantasy formats. Since his Week 8 bye, Washington has been targeted nine times and has just 29 receiving yards. Additionally, Washington is not a preferred target of Ryan Fitzpatrick, who started in Weeks 5 and 6 for the Titans; in those two games, Washington was targeted 12 times, catching four passes for 45 total yards. 

A good matchup in Week 11 should give Washington a small boost in value, but not enough to get him into many Fantasy lineups. 


Nate Washington remains quiet in loss


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/10/2013) Titans wide receiver Nate Washington improved on his previous week's work by actually catching a pass in Week 10, but still did little in a 29-27 loss to the Jaguars.

Washington brought in three of the five passes thrown his way for 29 yards, after being held without a catch a week ago.

Washington got off to a strong start to the season, but has slowed over the last few weeks. He enters Week 11 against the Colts with just seven catches over the last four hames.  


Nate Washington looking to bounce back


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2013) Coming off his worst game of the season, Titans wide receiver Nate Washington will be looking to bounce back in a big way in Week 10 against the Jaguars. Given a matchup against arguably the worst team in the NFL, should Fantasy owners expect a return to form this Sunday?

The Jaguars have actually been decent against wide receivers this year; it's just everyone else they can't guard. Opposing wide receivers are averaging 20.5 Fantasy points per game against the Jaguars, good for 15th in the NFL.

This game could get out of hand early, with the Titans turning to the running game to close it out -- that has been a trend for the Jaguars. Given his poor performance a week ago and the likelihood the Titans won't have to air it out, it is hard to rely on Washington as much more than a low-end starter for Week 10. 


Nate Washington thrives with Jake Locker


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/31/2013) Titans wide receiver Nate Washington has been much better this season with Jake Locker under center, a trend we expect to continue in Week 9 against the Rams.

Washington's two least-effective games this season came with Locker nursing an injury. In his return to the lineup in Week 7, Washington put up 62 yards on three catches, actually below his season average of 78.8 yards per game with Locker starter.

The Rams allow 23.5 Fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers this season, including at least 19 in six of eight games. Washington should be considered a solid Fantasy option for Week 9. 


Nate Washington held to just three grabs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2013) Titans wide receiver Nate Washington made some big plays but was only held to three catches during Sunday's loss to the 49ers in Week 7.

Washington hauled in a 14-yard pass from Jake Locker in the second quarter, a 42-yard pass in the third and a 6-yard pass in the fourth for his only action of the day. He was targeted 10 times and finished with three grabs for 62 yards in a 31-17 defeat.

Washington has been targeted eight times or more in four of his last five games played. He has 26 catches for 439 yards and two touchdowns this season. The Titans will have a bye week before facing the Rams in St. Louis in Week 9.

Titans receivers could struggle in Week 7


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/17/2013) The Titans receivers could struggle in Week 7 against San Francisco, and none are worth starting in the majority of standard leagues out of Kendall Wright, Nate Washington, Kenny Britt and Justin Hunter.

Only Wright is worth using in PPR formats since he has at least five catches in each of his past five games, but he has just one touchdown on the season. Still, this is a tough matchup.

The 49ers have allowed just two touchdowns to opposing receivers since Week 1, including matchups with Reggie Wayne, T.Y. Hilton and Andre Johnson. Tennessee has gone consecutive games without a receiver scoring against Kansas City and Seattle.

Both of those starts came with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center for the injured Jake Locker (hip), which factors into the receivers struggling. Until the Titans receivers start to produce at a higher level on a consistent basis, we would keep them reserved in most formats, especially in this matchup with the 49ers.


Nate Washington held to just one catch


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/13/2013) Titans receiver Nate Washington was held to just 1 catch against the Seahawks Week 6. 

Washington's struggles were a combination of good coverage, and poor quarterbacking. Ryan Fitzpatrick was harassed all game by Seattle's front seven, and all of his receivers were impacted. Washington was targeted 4 times, but was only able to come up with 1 catch for 15 yards. 

He'll attempt to get back on track next week against the 49ers. 


The NFL schedule-maker hates Nate Washington


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/9/2013) Nate Washington's dip in value may ultimately fall on the shoulders of Titans quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, which is unfair considering the circumstances in which Fitzpatrick took over -- having to face Kansas City (fourth-fewest passing yards per game allowed) and Seattle (third-fewest passing yards per game allowed) in his first two games. 

Washington entered Week 5 with two straight 100-yard games. He caught three passes for 30 yards against the Chiefs, and is now staring down a date with the tough Seahawks pass defense, followed by a Week 7 game against the 49ers, who have allowed the second-fewest passing yards per game. 

This is an ugly stretch for Washington, but after a Week 8 bye, he gets to face the Rams and Jaguars -- two games which should return him to past glory. The best thing to do here would be bench Washington for the next three weeks (or simply leave him on the wire), then activate/add him in Weeks 9 and 10. With laughably tough matchups and a bye coming up, Washington's not going to contribute enough to start in many formats. 


Nate Washington struggles with new quarterback


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/6/2013) Coming off back-to-back 100-yard games, Titans wide receiver Nate Washington didn't come close to the century mark Week 5 against the Chiefs. In fact, he didn't even have a catch until late in the third quarter, finishing with three for 30 yards.

He was working with a different quarterback in Ryan Fitzpatrick, who was filling in for the injured Jake Locker (hip), but Fitzpatrick found Washington on a 77-yard play after relieving Locker last week. Clearly, they weren't in sync this week.

Of course, Fitzpatrick wasn't in sync with anyone in the first half, completing just 5 of 14 passes for 31 yards. Only in the second half did the Titans' passing attack begin to click, thanks mostly to Kendall Wright's team-leading six catches for 74 yards.

But Washington had just as many targets as Wright (eight), showing he's still a vital part of the passing game. He and Fitzpatrick will try to make good on those targets Week 6 at Seattle.


Nate Washington contending with quarterback change


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/1/2013) Coming off back-to-back 100-yard games, including a two-touchdown effort against the Jets last week, Titans wide receiver Nate Washington will have to adjust to a new quarterback with Jake Locker sidelined by a hip injury. The good news is we've already gotten a sneak peak at how he'll fare with Ryan Fitzpatrick under center. The two hooked up on a 77-yard play after Locker left in Week 4. The bad news is the Chiefs are coming to town in Week 5.

The Chiefs have emerged as one of the league's top defensive teams this year and have been especially tough against the pass, allowing 188.8 yards per game, second-best in the league. With a league-leading 18 sacks this year, they might not give backup quarterback like Fitzpatrick a fair chance to get the ball to Washington. Even if they do, a touchdown seems unlikely. The Chiefs are allowing an NFL-low 10.3 points per game.

All is not lost for Washington with the switch from Locker to Fitzpatrick, who was a starter in Buffalo the last three years, but this week probably isn't the best time to roll the dice on him.


Nate Washington has back-to-back 100-yard games


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(9/29/2013) Titans wide receiver Nate Washington cracked the century mark and found the end zone for the first time this season during Sunday’s Week 4 game against the Jets.

Jake Locker found Washington in the end zone for a short 4-yard strike in the second quarter. With Locker sidelined in the second half, backup Ryan Fitzpatrick hooked up with Washington for a deep 77-yard touchdown strike in the fourth quarter.

Washington was targeted eight times and finished with four catches for 105 yards and two touchdowns in a 38-13 victory.

Washington has back-to-back 100-yard games for the first time in his career. He'll look for his third straight 100-yard game in Week 5 at home against Kansas City.

Nothing exciting about Titans receivers in Week 4


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/27/2013) The Titans receivers have had mixed success so far this season, and none of them are considered must-starts heading into Week 4 against the Jets among Kenny Britt, Kendall Wright and Nate Washington.

Britt should definitely be reserved in all leagues. He's dealing with a rib injury, and he's struggled all season with just five catches for 43 yards and no touchdowns. He has three Fantasy points combined, and his production against the Jets should be minimal at best. He faced the Jets last season and was held to one catch for 7 yards.

Wright has the best chance to succeed, especially in PPR leagues. He has 13 catches for 125 yards and a touchdown in his past two games on 17 targets, but he also struggled against the Jets last season with three catches for 31 yards.

Washington is coming off a tremendous game in Week 3 against the Chargers with eight catches for 131 yards on 10 targets, but his previous two games he combined for seven catches and 96 yards. Against the Jets last season, Washington had four catches for 62 yards.

The Jets have been solid in pass defense this season, allowing just two touchdowns, although three receivers have reached double digits in Fantasy points. We'd consider Wright a No. 3 receiver or flex option in PPR leagues, but Britt and Washington should be reserved in most formats.
