Redskins | Niles Paul, Logan Paulsen placed on IR

Sun, 16 Aug 2015 11:51:58 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul (ankle) and TE Logan Paulsen (toe) were placed on the Reserve/Injured list Sunday, Aug. 16.

Fantasy Tip: Jordan Reed should start the season as the starting tight end if he is able to stay healthy. Reed will be a risky option in drafts because of his injury history but could be a solid No. 2 tight end in most leagues.

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul (ankle) will need surgery to repair a fractured ankle and will miss the entire season, head coach Jay Gruden said Thursday, Aug. 13.

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul (shoulder) returned to practice Tuesday, Aug. 11, and he plans to play in the preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 13.

Tue, 11 Aug 2015 13:10:15 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul's (shoulder) MRI on his injured shoulder was clear, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Right now Paul is considered the starter, but Jordan Reed should see his fair share of playing time if/when he's healthy. Washington could implement a committee approach unless Paul or Reed miss extended time.

Redskins | Niles Paul added weight in offseason

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 15:31:47 -0700

Washington Redskins WR Niles Paul added around 27 pounds this offseason in order to be a better blocker against some of the bigger defensive ends in the NFL. Paul also worked on Olympic-style weightlifting, which helps with lower-body explosiveness.

Fantasy Tip: Paul is currently listed as the starting tight end and may keep the job because of his ability to block and catch in the offensive scheme. Paul could be a No. 2 tight end in leagues this season if he is able to keep the job.

Redskins | Niles Paul a starter for now

Mon, 10 Aug 2015 12:09:53 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul is considered the starting tight end at this point because he is more complete player than TE Jordan Reed, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Fantasy Tip: Paul had a solid 2014 season with 507 receiving yards and one touchdown in 16 games. Jordan Reed has more fantasy value and probably would be more involved in the passing game, but he has struggled to stay healthy. Owners probably should pass over Paul in drafts this season, but he could be a waiver wire option during the year.

Redskins | Jordan Reed ready for healthy season

Fri, 07 Aug 2015 10:52:06 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed spent the offseason changing his eating habits in order to help him stay healthy in 2015. He missed seven games in his rookie season, five games last year and was out this spring after a knee issue that required surgery. Reed has cut out bread, fried foods and sweets from his diet and is only eating grilled or baked chicken. He is also making an effort to stretch more before workouts. Reed feels like he can finally play a full season in 2015. Catching passes hasn't been an issue for Reed, but blocking has been his weak suite, and the Redskins often use TEs Logan Paulsen and Niles Paul in their two-tight end sets, especially if it's a run play. Reed feels that he is stronger and has more burst after strengthening the left side of his body and leg, and he's also added eight pounds of muscle but is leaner.

Fantasy Tip: It remains to be seen if Reed can stay healthy for a full season, but there's no doubt that he has the pass-catching ability to become a fantasy force. However, with Robert Griffin III an unknown now and with Paul and Paulsen to compete with, it's hard to see Reed being much more than a TE2 in 2015.
