|After a pair of middling seasons in Tennessee, Washington finally began to justify the contract the Titans gave him to leave Pittsburgh prior to the 2009 season. Given additional playing time and utilized as a focal point of the offense when Kenny Britt was lost for the season in Week 3, Washington had career highs in all receiving categories with 74 receptions for 1,023 yards and seven touchdowns, finishing the year as the 14th ranked fantasy wide receiver and proving that he wasnít quite the one-trick pony most made him out to be (yours truly included). Put your hand up if you saw that coming. Despite his production and role as a returning starter, Washington isnít getting much love from the fantasy prognosticators with his ADP sitting in the mid-fifties. While Washington will clearly see fewer targets with Britt back in the lineup and the addition of Kendall Wright, he figures to represent decent value on draft day. Britt was forced to undergo a second operation to correct the knee damage he suffered last season (torn ACL and MCL) while Wright is an unproven rookie who will need to get up to speed with the Titans playbook. Washington is a long shot to replicate his production from a year ago but he is far from the afterthought that most are making him out to be. Draft him as a WR4.

Suffered cracked bone in hand; day-to-day
|Already without Justin Hunter, out for the year with a lacerated spleen, the Titans are now dealing with an injury to Kendall Wright. The teamís top wide receiver suffered a hand injury when he slipped at practice Wednesday and did not practice Thursday.
ďHe finished practice [Wednesday] and today he came in and it was sore and we just gave him the day off because I didnít want him trying to catch a ball and aggravating it,Ē coach Ken Whisenhunt said. ďItís going to depend on how much better it gets tomorrow.Ē (ESPN)|
FF Today's Take: Wright is coming off his best game of the year and could still be a solid WR3 play - especially in PPR leagues - He should be a target hog following the loss of Hunter, but this is shaping up to be a game-time decision. If Wright sits, downgrade Zach Mettenberger and upgrade Nate Washington and Delanie Walker, each of whom will likely get flooded with targets.
