The Patriots are signing former Texans and Titans WR Nate Washington.

Fantasy Impact:

Washington is turning 33 in August. He averaged 3.4 catches for 47 yards in 14 games last season with the Texans. It's not inconceivable that he wins the starting job on the outside, but he'll have to beat out Chris Hogan, whom the team prioritized in free agency.

Texans WR Nate Washington (hip) returned to limited practice reps Thursday after missing Wednesday practice. Washington was unable to play through the hip injury last week, so he seems iffy for Saturday’s game against the Chiefs despite the return to practice.

Texans WR Cecil Shorts (hamstring) took limited practice reps Wednesday. With Nate Washington iffy, Shorts’ availability will be key. If both players are out, Jaelen Strong would be a Sneaky Start as the likely starter opposite DeAndre Hopkins. Strong should play quite a bit if either Washington or Shorts is sidelined.
