Tennessee Titans wide receiver Nate Washington caught four passes for 105 yards and two touchdowns in the Titans Week 4 win over the New York Jets. Kenny Britt has been mostly ineffective and was inactive in Week 4 with a rib injury and Washington had become one of Jake Locker's go to guys. In the past two weeks, Washington emerged from the pack as the receiver for the Titans who is capable of consistently making big plays down the field and finding the end zone. On the year, Washington has 19 receptions for 332 yards and two touchdowns. He leads all receivers in targets with 22 with Kendall Wright right behind him with 21.
Fantasy impact: Washington hasn't been on the fantasy radar but he has put together two strong games in a row and has shown the ability to consistently make big plays for the Titans. Unfortunately, starter Jake Locker could be lost for a while with a right hip injury but backup Ryan Fitzpatrick targeted Washington four times Sunday including a 77 yard touchdown pass. The Titans will face the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 5 and Washington is looking like a good bye week replacement and possibly a WR3 if his string continues.
