    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (ankle, shoulder) did not practice Friday, Oct. 19 and he is listed as doubtful for the Week 7 game against the Dallas Cowboys.

    Huddle Up: The Redskins haven't ruled him out yet, so there is a chance he plays. With Jamison Crowder already out, and Richardson unlikely, it could be a bigger workload for Josh Doctson.

  • Posted: 10/18/2018 1:41pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) did not participate in practice Thursday, Oct. 18.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was able to play in the last game, but his status for Week 7 is still up in the air. Owners can keep an eye on the situation, but Richardson can be benched if better options are available.

  • Posted: 10/17/2018 3:24pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) was unable to practice Wednesday, Oct. 17.

    Huddle Up: Richardson has found the end zone in two of his past three outings, and he has seven grabs with 81 yards and 10 targets over the past two games. He is worth a look as a low-end WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams as long as he is healthy. It appears he is getting more comfortable in his new surroundings after a slow start.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 1:44pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson managed three receptions for 31 yards and a touchdown on five targets in Week 6 against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was the best of the lot for the Redskins wide receivers with Jamison Crowder out with an injury and all of his fellow wideouts struggling. The best news is that he didn't appear to have any setbacks with his knee or shoulder issues. The Redskins host the Cowboys in Week 7.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 9:29am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 6 game.

    Huddle Up: Richardson has been pretty consistent over the last few games but has not caught more than four passes in any game. He could be a flex option for some owners but can be benched if better options are available.

  • Posted: 10/14/2018 5:35am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) is considered a game-time decision for Week 6's game against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was listed as questionable on the injury report despite taking part in only one practice session during the week on a limited basis. If he is active versus Carolina, he's worthy of consideration as a flex option, especially with WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) and RB Chris Thompson (rib, knee) unlikely to play.

  • Posted: 10/12/2018 12:27pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 12, and is listed as questionable for Week 6.

    Huddle Up: Richardson could be a game-time decision for the game, so owners will need to check the inactive list. He has been targeted at least five times in three of his four games this season and could be a flex option if he is active this week.

  • Posted: 10/12/2018 10:55am ET

    Washington Redskins WRs Jamison Crowder (ankle), Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) and Josh Doctson (heel) on Friday, Oct. 12, received questionable designations for the Week 6 game against the Carolina Panthers.

    Huddle Up: This is quite the mess in D.C. Richardson and Doctson at least put in some limited practice time Friday while Crowder sat out to work on the side with trainers. Fantasy owners will have to check in Sunday to see if any will be available as flex options.

  • Posted: 10/11/2018 3:50pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee) did not practice for the second straight day on Thursday, Oct. 11.

    Huddle Up: Richardson appears to still be feeling the effects of the injury he suffered in Monday night's defeat at the hands of the Saints. Regardless, he's not a recommended option for Week 6 lineups.

  • Posted: 10/10/2018 3:30pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee) was unable to participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 10.

    Huddle Up: This is the result of an injury Richardson sustained in the club's Monday Night Football loss this past week. The former Seahawk has had a lackluster first season with the Redskins and is not a recommended fantasy option even if he is healthy enough to suit up.

  • Posted: 10/8/2018 7:58pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee) left the Week 5 game against the New Orleans Saints due to a right knee injury and officially he is considered doubtful to return. He posted 50 yards with four grabs on five targets before departing.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was seen on the telecast with his head down, knee wrapped in ice and there is a lopsided score on the board. He might be officially doubtful, but there is no reason he is returning.

  • Posted: 10/6/2018 1:29pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) practiced in full on Saturday, Oct. 6 after being limited in each of his two previous sessions. He was removed from the injury report ahead of the Week 5 game with the New Orleans Saints on Monday, Oct. 8.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was limited to just one catch last time out in Week 3 against the Packers, but he did score his first touchdown in burgundy and gold on a 46-yard reception. He could be a sleeper in deeper fantasy leagues and DFS against the league's 30th-ranked passing defense.

  • Posted: 9/23/2018 6:08am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) is expected to play in Week 3's game against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was listed as questionable on the injury report and participated in two practice sessions during the week on a limited basis. He should be viewed as a WR4 or flex option at best when he is completely healthy, so owners may want to look for safer alternatives.

  • Posted: 9/21/2018 2:02pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) practiced on a limited basis Friday, Sept. 21 and he is listed as questionable for Week 3 against the Green Bay Packers.

    Huddle Up: Richardson is a risky fantasy play for Week 3. When completely healthy, he is still just a WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams. If you have healthier alternatives, use them.

  • Posted: 9/20/2018 2:55pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Sept. 20.

    Huddle Up: Richardson appears to have a good chance to play this week, but owners will know more about his status in the new few days. He has caught eight passes for 85 yards in the first two weeks and probably can stay on most benches this week.

  • Posted: 9/19/2018 1:40pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) was unable to practice Wednesday, Sept. 19. He had an MRI on the shoulder and it didn't reveal anything serious.

    Huddle Up: Richardson's status for Week 3 against the Packers is uncertain. Check back later in the week when the official injury designation is revealed on Friday. When healthy he is a decent WR4 or flex fantasy option in leagues of 12 or more teams.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 1:59pm ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) racked up four catches for 63 yards on six receptions in the Week 2 game against the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was battling a shoulder injury this week, but he didn't seem to show any ill effects of the injury wit ha solid stat line. He is a decent WR4 in most fantasy leagues of 12 or more leagues heading into Week 3 against Green Bay.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 9:06am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 2.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was quiet in the first game but should still see a decent amount of targets in Week 2. He will have a favorable matchup this week and can be a flex option in some leagues.

  • Posted: 9/16/2018 5:43am ET

    Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) is considered a game-time decision for Week 2's game versus the Indianapolis Colts.

    Huddle Up: Richardson was listed as questionable on the injury report but it is concerning that he went from being a full practice participant Thursday, Sept. 13, to not practicing at all Friday, Sept. 14. It would be best to avoid using him in fantasy lineups this week and seek healthier options.

  • Posted: 9/14/2018 2:58pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) did not participate in practice Friday, Sept. 14, and is listed as questionable for Week 2.

    Huddle Up: It is not a good sign that Richardson went from full participation to no participation, so he could be a game-time decision this week. Owners may want to look for healthier options to use in their lineup and keep Richardson on the bench.

  • Posted: 3/13/2018 10:13am ET

    Seattle Seahawks impending free-agent WR Paul Richardson is expected to sign a five-year contract worth a reported $40 million deal with $20 million guaranteed, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: It's a pretty penny for an injury-prone receiver, but he should give Washington the deep threat it lacked last season after letting DeSean Jackson bolt via free agency. Richardson finally stayed healthy for the most part in 2016 and enjoyed a mini-breakout season, finishing with 44 catches for 703 yards and six touchdowns - all career highs. Richardson could reach fantasy WR3 value in the nation's capital, but he probably needs to be viewed more as a WR4.

  • Posted: 12/24/2017 8:45pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson caught two passes on four targets for 21 yards in a 21-12 win over the Dallas Cowboys in Week 16.

    Huddle Up: Richardson has big-play ability, but he is a boom-or-bust flex play for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 12/11/2017 5:34am ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson had three catches for 72 yards and a touchdown against the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, Dec. 10.

    Huddle Up: He also led the team with seven targets, which might have contributed to Jimmy Graham only being looked at twice. Richardson is far too inconsistent to use against the Los Angeles Rams next week except as a weak flex play.

  • Posted: 11/26/2017 7:25pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson finished with four receptions for 70 yards on seven targets in Week 12 against the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: Richardson had the biggest plays in the pass offense in this 24-13 victory, and Russell Wilson looked to the wide receiver the most. The wideout is in a contract year, so he'll be trying even harder down the stretch to turn heads for that big pay day in the offseason. As such he's a solid WR4 or flex fantasy option in Week 13 and beyond.

  • Posted: 11/20/2017 11:05pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson finished with five catches on eight targets for 56 yards in the team's Week 11 loss Monday, Nov. 20, versus the Atlanta Falcons.

    Huddle Up: This was somewhat of an encouraging outing from Richardson, as it was the most throws he's received in a game all season, and the result was his second outing with at least five receptions. Still, he's decisively behind Jimmy Graham and Doug Baldwin on the food chain, which severely caps his ceiling as a WR3.

  • Posted: 11/9/2017 11:21am ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (groin) plans to take the field Thursday, Nov. 9, but could be on a snap count, according to a source.

    Huddle Up: Richardson's name has a lot of caution tape wrapped around it tonight. It's better to keep him on the bench tonight after a short week. Doug Baldwin is an automatic start and Tyler Lockett makes for a decent flex option in standard leagues.

  • Posted: 11/9/2017 9:21am ET

    Updating previous reports, Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (groin) is considered a game-time decision Thursday, Nov. 9, but there is optimism he plays.

    Huddle Up: He has had a good stretch the last few games, but with a short week and his boom-or-bust nature, he's not the kind of start you want against the Arizona Cardinals this week.

  • Posted: 11/8/2017 3:26pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (groin) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Nov. 8, and is listed as questionable for Week 10.

    Huddle Up: Richardson may be a game-time decision for Week 10 after missing the last two days of practice, so owners will need to check the inactive list. He has recorded three touchdowns over the last three games, but owners may want to consider other starting options because of his uncertain status.

  • Posted: 11/7/2017 4:43pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (groin) was held out of practice Tuesday, Nov. 7.

    Huddle Up: It's worrisome that Richardson couldn't practice with game day being about 48 hours away. It would be telling if he is able to practice tomorrow or not. Given the fact that he's on a short week, it's not advisable to start him if he continues to miss practice.

  • Posted: 11/5/2017 8:51pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson posted three receptions for 41 yards on his three targets in Week 9 against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: His stat line would have been even worse if not for a late 26-yard catch in the fourth quarter. Still, Richardson remains a pretty decent WR4 in most fantasy leagues heading into Week 10 against the Cardinals on Thursday night. The Seattle offense has been pass-heavy of late.

  • Posted: 10/29/2017 6:58pm ET

    Seattle Seahawks WR Paul Richardson posted six receptions for 105 yards and two touchdowns on seven targets in Week 8 against the Houston Texans.

    Huddle Up: Richardson has been outstanding in the past two weeks, going for 166 receiving yards and three touchdowns. He has at least two receptions in each of his seven games this season, and he has found the end zone at least once in four of the past six outings. He has emerged as a dependable WR4 in most PPR formats, and if he keeps going this way he is going to be a solid standard option, too.
