Nate Washington caught 4 passes for 63 yards in the Titans' loss to the Eagles.
Fantasy Impact: Washington has been developing a bit of a rapport with Zach Mettenberger as of late, and though this wasn't his biggest game, he seems to have taken Kendall Wright's spot as Mr. Reliable. He's sneaking into the WR3/4 conversation, though isn't a must-own by any stretch of the imagination.
Washington had only one catch Monday night against the Steelers, but made the most of it, turning a well-thrown bomb from Zach Mettenberger into an 80 yard touchdown that put the Titans up 17-13 at the half.
Fantasy Impact: He's had a relatively strong past two weeks, setting his season high for yards with 68 last week and then breaking that mark this week. Another strong week and continued growth of the rhythm he and Mettenberger seem to be developing could put him in the fantasy conversation. As for now, Washington is one to watch, not one to act on.
WR Nate Washington led the Titans with 68 receiving yards on four receptions against the Texans. It was the first time all season he led the team in receiving yards, as well as his highest yardage total of the season. Washington came out of the game in the fourth-quarter with a shoulder injury.
Fantasy Impact: Washington had his best game of the season so far with 68 receiving yards. That details the type of disappointing season he has experienced thus far. Unfortunately, he also suffered a should injury late in the game, but he will have the bye week to recover if the injury wasn't too serious. Washington shouldn't be owned in any fantasy format right now. Yet, with QB Zach Mettenberger now in the picture, Washington's numbers could start to improve.

Fantasy Impact: The aging veteran's roster spot appears to be secure, but Washington is in danger of losing snaps to the up-and-coming Justin Hunter. Washington isn't ready to give up his starting position without a fight.
