Player Notes
Nov 5 5:23pm ET

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder), OG Brandon Scherff (pectoral) and OG Shawn Lauvao (knee) were placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 5. The team also signed free-agent OG Luke Bowanko (Patriots) and OG Jonathan Cooper (49ers). Terms of the contracts were not disclosed.

Nov 5 3:30pm ET

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said that wide receiver Paul Richardson (knee), and offensive guards Brandon Scherff (pectoral) and Shawn Lauvao (knee) will all need surgery and will miss the rest of the season. It's a huge blow to a mediocre offense that definitely couldn't afford it. Left tackle Trent Williams (thumb) is also out for a month, so running back Adrian Peterson should be negatively affected by the beat up offensive line. Richardson hadn't really done much for fantasy owners, even with Jamison Crowder not having played in weeks. Richardson's loss means that Josh Doctson and Maurice Harris will be the team's top two receivers until Crowder can return. Harris blew up for a career day in Week 9, while Doctson found the end zone. Neither are very attractive outside of the deepest leagues with Washington's passing attack going nowhere. Maybe disappointing tight end Jordan Reed can finally break out, but he has shown zero chemistry with quarterback Alex Smith.

Nov 5 3:23pm ET

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) will miss the remainder of the season with an injury to his AC joint, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Nov 2 5:23pm ET

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) was limited in practice again on Friday, Nov. 2 and he is considered questionable for Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Spin: Richardson could see some added targets if he is in the lineup, as Jamison Crowder is out again. As long as he is active consider him a WR5 in fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams.

Nov 2 5:13pm ET

Washington Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle), RB Chris Thompson (ribs) and OT Trent Williams (thumb, shoulder) did not practice Friday, Nov. 2 and each are out for Week 9 against the Atlanta Falcons. LB Ryan Anderson (knee), RB Kapri Bibbs (shoulder), S Montae Nicholson (neck, hip) and WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) were limited and are listed as questionable. LB Zach Brown (oblique), CB Quinton Dunbar (shin), WR Maurice Harris (shoulder), CB Danny Johnson (forearm), OG Shawn Lauvao (calf), QB Colt McCoy (thumb), OT Morgan Moses (elbow), RB Adrian Peterson (shoulder), TE Jordan Reed (neck) and OG Brandon Scherff (knee) practiced in full and are off the report.

Nov 1 7:33pm ET

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Nov. 1.

Fantasy Spin: Richardson probably will be active for the game and should receive some targets in the passing game. He could be a flex option in some deeper leagues but will not be a strong fantasy option.

Oct 31 7:23pm ET

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 31.

Fantasy Spin: Richardson probably will be able to play despite his injury, but owners will know more about his status later in the week. He does have two touchdowns in his last four games but has been held to under 50 yards in three of those games. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues because six teams are on bye but is not a must-start option.

Oct 28 6:03pm ET

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson caught two passes for 34 yards against the New York Giants in Week 8.

Fantasy Spin: Richardson has been targeted five times in each of the last three games but has been held to under 35 yards in each of the last two games. He probably can be avoided in leagues next week even though he may have a favorable matchup.

Oct 28 5:30pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson returned to action Sunday after missing Week 7 due to injury. He was targeted five times, but only hauled in two of those for 34 yards. This is largely how Richardson's season as a whole has gone, as he hasn't caught more than four passes in any game, and is occasionally able to spring one for a big chunk of yards. As such, that's essentially what you're hoping for if you start him in your fantasy lineup: a big play. He maintains the most impressive season-long stat line among Redskins wideouts, but that isn't saying much. With how unreliable the group has been, it will be interesting to see if Washington seeks a receiver before this week's trade deadline.

Oct 28 12:13pm ET

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 8 game.

Oct 28 12:00pm ET

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson (knee, rib) and wide receiver Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) are both active for Week 8 against the Giants. Thompson will return to his pass-catching role in the backfield and will be in play as an RB3/flex in PPR leagues. His return will hurt the overall ceiling for Adrian Peterson slightly. Richardson should be the team's No. 1 receiver with Jamison Crowder out for the third straight game, but Richardson has been highly inconsistent in this extremely mediocre passing game. Consider Richardson a touchdown-dependant WR4/flex.

Oct 26 3:43pm ET

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) was limited during practice Friday, Oct. 26, and is listed as questionable for Week 8.

Fantasy Spin: Richardson may be a game-time decision this week, so owners will need to check the inactive list. He could receive limited snaps if he is active for the game and could be benched if owners have better options available.

Oct 26 2:00pm ET

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson (knee, rib) and wide receiver Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) are both listed as questionable for Week 8 against the Giants. Thompson practiced this week but also did last week and was inactive, so he's not a lock to return. If he does, he'll merely be an RB3/flex play in PPR leagues with Adrian Peterson still leading this backfield on early downs. Richardson hasn't gone over four catches or 63 yards in a single week this season and was out last Sunday. He'll have a good matchup against the Giants if he returns, but he still isn't more than a WR4/flex play in a rough Redskins passing offense.

Oct 26 1:20pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson missed Week 7 due to injury, but he could be in line for an assertive return against the Giants if he is able to suit up. The Giants have been torched by wide receiver groups for three consecutive weeks, allowing 621 yards, 48 catches and four touchdowns in that time frame. Washington's wideouts have been largely forgettable for most of 2018's first half, but Richardson has been the lone spark among them. He's the only player on the team with multiple receiving touchdowns. Keep an eye on the Redskins' injury report leading up to Sunday's kickoff, because Richardson could continue to be Washington's most productive receiver if he's active.

From RotoBaller

Oct 25 7:13pm ET

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 25.

Fantasy Spin: The team is optimistic about Richardson's availability for Week 8, so owners should check the inactive list for his official status. He has caught a touchdown in two of his last three games but may only be a flex option in deeper leagues.

Oct 25 4:10pm ET

Washington Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said the team is "hopeful" that wide receiver Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) will play in Week 8 against the Giants after sitting out in Week 7. With Jamison Crowder unlikely to play again this Sunday, Richardson has a chance to be the No. 1 wideout for quarterback Alex Smith. That hasn't amounted to much in this stagnant Redskins passing attack so far this year, though, meaning Richardson won't be much more than a WR4/flex if he plays. He has only 16 catches on 24 targets for 212 yards and two touchdowns in five games. If he's inactive for the second straight game, Josh Doctson and Maurice Harris would be the top two wideouts once again.

Oct 25 1:20pm ET

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson (knee, ribs) and wide receiver Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) both returned to a limited practice on Wednesday after sitting out in Week 7. Thompson ranks second in receiving on the team despite missing a game. Thompson took part in practice last week before being ruled out, so he's no lock to return in Week 8 against the Giants. He doesn't appear close to rejoining the team. The 'Skins could really use Richardson back with Jamison Crowder likely to miss another game, but even then Richardson is a low-ceiling WR4/flex in a stagnant passing offense. If Thompson misses another game, Adrian Peterson will be a strong high-volume RB2 spelled by Kapri Bibbs.

From RotoBaller

Oct 24 7:23pm ET

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) was limited during practice Wednesday, Oct. 24.

Fantasy Spin: Richardson was not able to play last week but could play this week if he is able to practice. He has not posted great numbers this season and probably can be benched in most leagues even if he is active.

Oct 21 3:33pm ET

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) has been declared inactive for the team's Week 7 game.

Oct 21 3:20pm ET

Washington Redskins running back Chris Thompson (knee, rib) and wide receiver Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) are both inactive for Week 7 against the Cowboys. It'll be Thompson's second straight absence despite getting in some practice time. As a result, Adrian Peterson is a safer volume-based RB2. Expect Kapri Bibbs to be the change-of-pace back Sunday. With Richardson and Jamison Crowder both out, the 'Skins will go with Josh Doctson, Maurice Harris and Brian Quick as their top three wideouts. Tight end Jordan Reed should be targeted heavily.
