Nate Washington has low-key fantasy outing against Steelers

Nate Washington only caught three passes in Week 6. We break down the fantasy implications.

Nate Washington was targeted 10 times on Thursday night, but he was only able to haul in three of Matt Hasselbeck's passes coming his way. Washington finished with 57 yards receiving against the Steelers.

Fantasy Impact: With a season high of four catches after six weeks, it's tough to consider starting Washington at all right now. Hasselbeck's arm isn't as strong as it once was, so Jake Locker's return will certainly help Washington's value as he rockets passes downfield. With Kenny Britt healthy and Kendall Wright leading in targets, though, Washington's fantasy value is best reserved for deeper leagues at this point. Next week his numbers might go up against an awful Bills defense.
