Nate Washington caught four passes for 63 yards in Sunday's Week 12 loss at Philadelphia.
Washington was third on the team in targets with six, behind both Justin Hunter (10) and Delanie Walker (9). On most days, Kendall Wright (six targets) will be up there too -- but he was shut down by Brandon Boykin. Washington, now averaging 2.1 catches per game on the season, is waiver-wire fodder.

Nate Washington caught an 80-yard touchdown in the Titans' Week 11 loss to the Steelers.

Just before halftime, Washington burned William Gay on a double-move for the long touchdown to put the Titans up 17-13 heading into the locker room. The ex-Steeler saw just one other target on the night. He's waiver-wire material.
Nov 18 - 12:07 AM

Nate Washington secured 2-of-30 targets for 30 yards in the Titans' Week 10 loss to the Ravens.

Washington's initial catch went for 17 yards along the right sideline on Tennessee's opening drive. He added a 13-yard connection late in the second quarter. Washington is the Titans' third receiver, behind Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter. He isn't even worth rostering in 16-team leagues.
Nov 9 - 4:08 PM

Nate Washington (shoulder) returned to a full practice on Friday, but is listed as questionable for Week 10 against Baltimore.

Washington suffered an AC sprain in the shoulder during Week 8, but had the Titans' Week 9 bye to heal up. He will play in three-receiver sets Sunday against the Ravens, with Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter manning the two-wides.
Nov 7 - 1:15 PM

Nate Washington (shoulder) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Washington sprained the AC joint in his shoulder in Week 8, but had the Titans' bye to get healthy. Coach Ken Whisenhunt expects him to be available for Sunday's game against the Ravens.
Nov 5 - 3:08 PM

Titans WR Nate Washington sprained the AC joint in his shoulder during Sunday's Week 8 loss to the Texans.

Washington, who lost his starting "X" job to Justin Hunter a few weeks ago, posted a 4-68-0 line on four targets before leaving. The severity of his sprain is unknown, but this is the same injury that sidelined Jordan Cameron and Jimmy Graham for a bit earlier this season. Hunter's arrow continues to point up.
Oct 26 - 5:20 PM

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports teams have been calling the Titans about Nate Washington's availability.

This unofficially translates to, "We, the Titans, would love to trade Nate Washington." Already demoted in favor of Justin Hunter, Washington is just taking up roster and cap space on Tennessee's 53, and could probably be had for a conditional seventh-round pick. Unfortunately for the Titans, Washington has a guaranteed $4.8 million base salary and isn't worth half that much. They'd be lucky to get a bag of punctured footballs for him.

Nate Washington managed two catches for 23 yards in the Titans' Week 6 win over Jacksonville.

He finished with two targets. Washington's numbers, as usual, don't jump off the stat sheet, but he made a critical first-down catch on third down in the second quarter to keep a promising drive alive. A clear-cut role player in Ken Whisenhunt's offense behind Justin Hunter and Kendall Wright, Washington holds no value in fantasy leagues.
Oct 12 - 4:50 PM

Nate Washington secured 4-of-7 targets for 57 yards in the Titans' Week 5 loss to the Browns.

Washington continued to play a complementary role, taking a backseat this week to Justin Hunter, who officially got the start. A plus perimeter blocker but not much of a big-play threat, Washington is only worth owning in 16-team leagues. And even in those deeper formats, he's no better than bench depth.
Oct 5 - 5:53 PM

Nate Washington caught 1-of-4 targets for 20 yards in the Titans' Week 4 loss to the Colts.

Washington dropped an 18-yard touchdown before Delanie Walker ended up scoring a couple plays later. Washington is the clear No. 4 or 5 option in a terrible passing attack. He's on pace to catch just 24 passes for 320 yards and zero scores this season. Clearly, Washington is waiver wire fodder.
Sep 28 - 5:30 PM

Nate Washington didn't catch a pass in the Titans' Week 3 loss.

Washington was targeted three times on the afternoon. This comes a week after catching just 1-of-6 targets. Jake Locker's accuracy is way off, but Washington is also a 31-year-old receiver. He's well off the fantasy radar.
Sep 21 - 6:05 PM

Nate Washington caught 1-of-6 targets for one yard in Tennessee's Week 2 loss to the Cowboys.

That's as brutal of a stat-line as you will ever see for a receiver. Jake Locker was embarrassingly focused on his veteran wideout before shifting gears to the more explosive Justin Hunter in the second half. The Titans have to decrease Washington's role and increase Hunter's if they want their offense to be at its most effective.
Sep 14 - 5:58 PM

Nate Washington secured 4-of-6 targets for 59 yards in the Titans' Week 1 win over Kansas City.

He finished third on the team in targets, behind Justin Hunter (8) and Kendall Wright (7). Washington is a staple in Tennessee's three-wide sets, but has never been more than a replacement-level fantasy option. Now in his age-31 season, we don't see that changing. Washington is a fantasy WR5/6.
Sep 7 - 5:43 PM

Nate Washington caught three passes for 94 yards with a touchdown in Saturday's preseason game against the Falcons.

Rumored as a potential cap casualty since last season ended, Washington just won't go away. He continues to start and run with Kendall Wright in all two-wide sets, relegating Justin Hunter to three-wide formations only. Still, don't expect Washington to catch too many 63-yard touchdown bombs this season even if he can continue to hold off Hunter. Last year's 58-919-3 line is the ceiling.
Aug 23 - 10:38 PM

The Nashville Tennessean is still penciling Nate Washington in as the Titans' No. 3 receiver.

Following last season, there was a lot of speculation that the 31-year-old (in August) Washington and his $4.8 million salary would be released. Now it looks like he's going to stick as an expensive third receiver behind talented youngsters Kendall Wright and Justin Hunter. With his snap count slashed, Washington will be a poor bet to reach last year's 58-919-3 line.
