Washington has been in the league since 2005 and is entering his 11th season. His best season came in 2011 with the Titans when he went for 1,023 yards and seven touchdowns. That was the only season Washington has gone over 1,000 yards.
Washington signed with the Steelers as an undrafted free agent out of Tiffin in 2005. He was a part of both Steelers Super Bowl winning seasons (2005, 2008) before signing with the Titans.
Wright's timetable is still up in the air, but Washington could still be a factor even after he returns. For one thing, he wouldn't return at 100 percent. For another, Washington is now averaging 65.7 yards in his last seven games. That probably isn't 12-team league stuff, but it's enough that he deserves to be more than 14 percent owned.
And if somehow you made it to your league's championship game despite a gaping hole at wide receiver, Washington is a viable option for you as long as he remains the Titans' go-to guy.
Washington was targeted a team-high 10 times and hauled in six receptions for 102 yards during a 16-11 loss to the Jets.
The 102 receiving yards marked the first time Washington was able to surpass 100 receiving yards this season and the six receptions were also a season high. Washington has not scored a touchdown since Nov. 30.
The Titans will play at Jacksonville Thursday.
You probably expected wide receiver
But while he was a factor in Week 14, catching three passes (on three targets) for 56 yards, he wasn't the team's most productive wide receiver. No, that honor went to
Of course, five of those looks came in the second half, when the Titans were already well out of it, and three came with backup quarterback Jake Locker, who replaced starter Zach Mettenberger in the rout. Wright could certainly return for Week 15 against the Jets -- he was questionable for Week 14 as it is -- and considering Washington was involved in the passing game even before Wright went down, he would be more likely to remain a factor with Wright back.
It all adds up to Hagan not being such an advisable pickup in Fantasy. Still a lot of variables at play here, and on a Titans offense still searching for its identity, he probably wouldn't be all that productive even if they all went in his favor.
Wright was held without a grab for the first three quarters. He came down with a 28-yard reception with 9:35 renaming in the game for his only catch of the day. He was targeted six times. Washington caught four of the six passes thrown his way for 63 yards.
