Patriots | Nate Washington joining Patriots

Thu, 24 Mar 2016 13:44:24 -0700

Free-agent WR Nate Washington (Titans) is signing an undisclosed deal with the New England Patriots Thursday, March 24, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The Patriots are making some splashes in the passing game this offseason, signing Martellus Bennett, Chris Hogan and now Washington. Washington will be one of their better deep threats and could even win their No. 3 wide receiver job behind Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. Of course, he'll be at least the fourth receiving option behind Edelman, Rob Gronkowski, Amendola and possibly Bennett. New England likes to use its running backs in the passing game, too, so there may be too many mouths to feed for Washington to be considered more than a WR4.

Patriots | Nate Washington visiting Pats

Mon, 14 Mar 2016 14:14:56 -0700

Free-agent WR Nate Washington (Texans) had a visit with the New England Patriots Monday, March 14, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: The 10-year veteran had 47 catches for 658 yards and four touchdowns for the Houston Texans last year. He has gone over 1,000 yards only once in his career (back in 2011) and is more of a complementary receiver that creates depth on a roster. He'd likely be the Pats' fourth or fifth receiver if he signs, which wouldn't make him much of a fantasy asset.

Texans | Cecil Shorts, Nate Washington probable

Fri, 08 Jan 2016 12:50:43 -0800

Houston Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) and WR Nate Washington (hip) are listed as probable for the wild-card game against the Kansas City Chiefs Saturday, Jan. 9. Shorts fully participated in the team's walkthrough Friday, Jan. 8, while Washington was limited.

Fantasy Tip: Shorts ($3,700, 7.4% of cap) and Washington ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) should have role in the passing game against the Chiefs. Neither receiver posted big numbers during the regular season but could have some success this week since the Chiefs had some problems stopping receivers during the regular season. Both players could be cheaper options on FantasyScore, but owners should not expect big numbers.

Texans | Two Texans limited Thursday

Thu, 07 Jan 2016 13:17:09 -0800

Houston Texans RB Alfred Blue (calf) and WR Nate Washington (hip) were limited in practice Thursday, Jan. 7.

Fantasy Tip: The limited status is an upgrade for Washington ($4,000, 8.0% of cap) after not practicing yesterday. Washington is worth a look if you want a cheaper playoff wide receiver on FantasyScore, but Blue ($5,400, 10.8%) should be avoided altogether against the Kansas City Chiefs.

Texans | Nate Washington misses practice

Wed, 06 Jan 2016 12:12:20 -0800

Houston Texans WR Nate Washington (hip) did not practice Wednesday, Jan. 6.

Fantasy Tip: Washington and Cecil Shorts are a little banged up right now. DeAndre Hopkins should be frequently targeted as usual, but Jaelen Strong could also see more action than usual. He may not be a bad sleeper for those in playoff contests.

Texans | Nate Washington day-to-day

Mon, 04 Jan 2016 13:09:13 -0800

Houston Texans WR Nate Washington (hip) is considered day-to-day, according to head coach Bill O'Brien.

Fantasy Tip: Of this year's playoff teams, the Kansas City Chiefs have actually been the second worst against wide receivers behind the Pittsburgh Steelers. If you're in a fantasy playoffs league, Washington may not be a bad WR3 option if he does play.

Texans | Nate Washington injures hip

Sun, 03 Jan 2016 13:16:33 -0800

Houston Texans WR Nate Washington (hip) suffered a hip injury during the team's Week 17 game and was not able to return.

Fantasy Tip: Washington will have the offseason to recover from the injury, so he should be fine for next season. He finished the season with 652 yards and four touchdowns but would only be a late-round option in some deeper leagues.

Texans | Three Houston players probable

Fri, 27 Nov 2015 12:46:25 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion), RB Chris Polk (knee, hamstring) and WR Nate Washington (hip) are listed as probable for Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints.

Fantasy Tip: Hoyer ($6,600, 13.2% of cap), Polk ($2,500, 5.0%) and Washington ($4,000, 8.0%) all have really good matchups against the New Orleans Saints this week. Polk and Washington are too unreliable to consider starting, but Hoyer makes for a nice sleeper at quarterback as the Saints have allowed a league-high 28 touchdown passes to quarterbacks in 2015.

Texans | Three Texans fully practice Thursday

Thu, 26 Nov 2015 16:22:37 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion), RB Chris Polk (knee, hamstring) and WR Nate Washington (hip) participated fully in practice Thursday, Nov. 26.

Fantasy Tip: All three of these guys have really good matchups against one of the worst fantasy defenses in the league this year in the New Orleans Saints. Polk and Washington aren't too reliable, though, but Hoyer could be a nice sleeper play on FantasyScore in Week 12 as the Saints have allowed a league-high 28 touchdown passes to quarterbacks this year.

Texans | Two Texans have full practice

Wed, 25 Nov 2015 14:33:34 -0800

Houston Texans QB Brian Hoyer (concussion) and WR Nate Washington (hip) participated fully in practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Fantasy Tip: It looks like Hoyer ($6,600, 13.2% of cap) and Washington ($4,000, 8.0%) will be good to go in Week 12 against the New Orleans Saints. The whole Texans' offense has a great matchup versus New Orleans, but Washington may be the odd one out as he has played inconsistently this year. Hoyer is worth a start, though.
