Redskins | Niles Paul ready if needed

Sat, 11 Jul 2015 12:45:38 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul is prepared to step in and start if TE Jordan Reed struggles with injuries again this season. Paul practiced some with the first team this offseason and head coach Jay Gruden praised his development. Reed will start if and when he's healthy, but Reed has missed 12 games in his first two seasons in the league.

Fantasy Tip: Paul is a capable replacement for Reed, as he proved last season, but he's not at the same skill level as Reed. When healthy, Reed can put up top-five tight end numbers. He's a high-risk, high-reward pick, and fantasy owners should consider selecting Paul later in drafts if they draft Reed.

Redskins | Niles Paul re-signs with Redskins

Fri, 06 Mar 2015 09:20:12 -0800

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul re-signed Friday, March 6. Paul could earn up to a little under $10 million with the new contract.

Fantasy Tip: Paul will likely slot behind Jordan Reed on the depth chart heading into 2015, but he is still someone to keep an eye on heading into training camp. Paul has low-end TE1 potential, but he may not get that opportunity with Washington.

Falcons | Atlanta interested in Niles Paul?

Tue, 03 Mar 2015 11:07:44 -0800

Washington Redskins impending free-agent TE Niles Paul figures to draw interest from the Atlanta Falcons once the free agency period begins. Paul is familiar with offensive coordinator Kyle Shanahan's scheme and TE Levine Toilolo hasn't exactly proven himself to be the answer at the position.

Fantasy Tip: Paul performed swimmingly when Jordan Reed was injured last season and proved to have TE1 potential when he's given the opportunity to start. Nothing is set in stone yet, of course, so keep an eye on Paul and the Falcons once free agency commences.

Sun, 19 Oct 2014 10:04:52 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul caught a 50-yard pass in the first quarter of the team's Week 7 game.

Redskins | Jordan Reed inactive, Niles Paul in

Mon, 06 Oct 2014 16:08:56 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) is inactive in Week 5 against the Seattle Seahawks Monday, Oct. 6. TE Niles Paul (concussion) is active and will replace Reed.

Fantasy Tip: Both Reed and Paul were sketchy options for your daily lineups this weekend. Paul is unlikely to make much of an impact against the Seahawks, either.

Sat, 04 Oct 2014 06:39:08 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul (concussion) is expected to play in Week 5 after being cleared for full practice participation Friday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Paul likely will be the starting tight end if Jordan Reed is not able to play in Week 5. Paul will come with some risk this week, but could be a solid addition on FantasyScore at $5,500.

Redskins | Niles Paul on the field

Fri, 03 Oct 2014 15:57:24 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul (concussion) fully participated in practice Friday, Oct. 3.

Fantasy Tip: Paul appears to be on track to play in Week 5 and could receive another start if Jordan Reed is not able to play. Paul costs $5,500 on FantasyScore and should be considered as an injury risk since there is a chance he could suffer a setback.

Redskins | Niles Paul limited

Thu, 02 Oct 2014 12:12:52 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul (concussion) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 2.

Fantasy Tip: Paul's status for Week 5 is still uncertain at this point, so owners will need to monitor his practice participation. If he plays, Paul will be facing a tough Seattle Seahawks defense and may not be worth his $5,500 price tag on FantasyScore.

Redskins | Niles Paul not on practice field

Tue, 30 Sep 2014 10:06:23 -0700

Washington Redskins TE Niles Paul (concussion) did not practice Tuesday, Sept. 30, and remains in the league's concussion protocol. However, head coach Jay Gruden said Paul is "making very good progress."

Fantasy Tip: Paul remains very iffy for Week 5. Play it safe and avoid him at FantasyScore in Week 5 against a tough opponent, the Seattle Seahawks. If Jordan Reed (hamstring) plays, he'll cost you $3,700 (7.4% of cap).
