Fantasy owners were encouraged following weeks three and four in which Washington averaged six receptions for 118 yards and one touchdown, but an injury to Jake Locker dampened expectations and Washington is now likely to struggle with Ryan Fitzpatrick at the helm. Fitzpatrick is extremely inconsistent, and found Washington just three times for 30 yards in his first start of the season. A WR3 with Locker under center, Nate Washington will be no more than a desperation bye week fill-in for as long as Fitzpatrick is throwing him the ball. Fantasy owners now need to scour waiver wires to find a replacement for the nine year veteran wide receiver. Keep Washington on your benches this week.

A big money free agent signing this offseason, Jared Cook has failed to impress following a tremendous week one performance. Cook caught seven passes for 141 yards and two touchdowns in week one, but has totaled just 122 yards and zero touchdowns in the next four games combined. Cook caught just three passes for 26 yards in week five, and faces another stiff test in Houston this week. The Texans are the number one ranked defense against the pass, allowing just 134 passing yards per game. Cook will struggle to get back on track in week six, and should be left on fantasy benches if owners have another decent option to go with.
