Nate Washington led the Titans with 112 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's game between the Titans and the Lions. We break down the fantasy implications.

Nate Washington had three receptions for 112 yards and a touchdown during Sunday's game between the Tennessee Titans and the Detroit Lions, making the most of just three targets. Kenny Britt and Kendall Wright led the Titans with 11 targets each. Britt finished with six receptions for 55 yards and Wright had seven receptions for 41 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Washington was spectacular Sunday, but it's clear he is a deep-threat only for Jake Locker and the Titans. Expect a lot of boom-or-bust games going forward if you're starting him in your standard league. Britt, meanwhile, took on a much larger role within the offense compared to the previous week, and could be the better fantasy option going forward.
