|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 wasn’t 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 isn’t 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.
| Cooper, De'Anthony Thomas injured at practice -- Thu Sep 4 12:30 pm --|
Chiefs may be without starting corner and key returner
|The Chiefs could be without two key players in Sunday’s season opener against the Tennessee Titans.
Starting cornerback Marcus Cooper suffered an ankle injury and rookie running back/punt returner De’Anthony Thomas strained a hamstring late in Wednesday’s practice, coach Andy Reid said on Thursday morning.
Neither player was expected to practice on Thursday. (Kansas City Star)|
FF Today's Take: The Chiefs have had a slew of injury issues this preseason and can't afford to lose yet another key piece in the secondary. If Cooper is out, there may be some hidden gems for fantasy owners in the Titans passing game this week. Kendall Wright, Nate Washington and Justin Hunter would get a bump in value.
