Pros: The Titans are reportedly looking to make better use of Washington in the offense this year, and conventional wisdom says they are going to need to open up the offense - primarily the passing game - more this season. Washington has a developing rapport with quarterback Vince Young, and the two have spent time working out together during the offseason to improve their chemistry.

Cons: The offense is a run-first, conservative style, and Young is still developing. That doesn't bode well for many big games out of the receivers. Washington had two or less catches in seven games last year, and also had too many drops (nine). Despite starting 15 games for the first time in his career, Washington's production, sans touchdowns, didn't improve much compared to when he was a No. 3 receiver with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Fantasy tip: Washington isn't always selected; and when he is, it typically comes at the tail end of most fantasy football drafts. This will be his second year in the system and he is coming off a career-high six touchdown receptions. He is definitely has upside as a No. 4 fantasy receiver, and you won't have to invest much in him.
