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.
Fantasy Spin: 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.
Washington Redskins S Troy Apke (hamstring), LB Zach Brown (oblique), OG Shawn Lauvao (calf) and WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) did not practice Wednesday, Sept. 19. OG Brandon Scherff (knee) and OT Trent Williams (knee) were listed as limited participants, while LB Shaun Dion Hamilton (elbow), WR Maurice Harris (concussion), QB Colt McCoy (thumb) and OT Morgan Moses (knee) were listed as full participants.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson (knee) underwent an MRI exam on his knee, but it came back negative. Richardson has been beat up this year already, which is perhaps why the team signed two receivers this week. He has eight catches on 12 targets for 85 yards through two weeks but is more of a WR5/6 with quarterback Alex Smith at the helm in D.C.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson (shoulder) is active for Week 2 against the Colts. Wide receiver Maurice Harris and running back Samaje Perine are out. Richardson had four catches for just 22 yards on six targets in the season opener but has a solid matchup this weekend against Indy's secondary. Still, he's likely behind both Jamison Crowder and Josh Doctson in the pecking order, making him more of a WR4/5 for fantasy owners.
Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) is officially active for the team's Week 2.
Fantasy Spin: 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.
Richardson is active for the Week 2 game.
Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) is considered a game-time decision for Week 2's game versus the Indianapolis Colts.
Fantasy Spin: 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.
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.
Fantasy Spin: 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.
Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) was unable to practice Friday, Sept. 14.
Washington Redskins S Troy Apke (hamstring) did not participate in practice Thursday, Sept. 13. WR Maurice Harris (concussion) and OT Morgan Moses (knee) were limited during practice. LB Zach Brown (oblique), QB Colt McCoy (thumb), WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) and OT Trent Williams (knee) fully participated in practice.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson is only 26 years old, but he is the oldest wideout on the team's 53-man roster. There is a youth movement in D.C., after veteran Brian Quinn was jettisoned in Saturday's roster cuts. Richardson is expected to start opposite Josh Doctson, and he has the potential to be a productive WR4 in most fantasy formats. He showed signs of life in Seattle last season, posting career highs across the board with 44 grabs, 80 targets, 703 yards and six touchdowns. He also averaged 16.0 yards per game, so fantasy players in formats rewarding longer scores will want him on the radar, too.
Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson racked up 31 yards on a pair of receptions in Friday's preseason game against the Denver Broncos. Richardson, Josh Doctson and Jamison Crowder (groin) are roster certainties in a crowded wideout picture in D.C. It's hard to imagine Richardson will suit up for the final preseason game on Thursday against the Baltimore Ravens, so the next time fantasy owners see him will likely be Week 1 on the road against the Arizona Cardinals. He knows the Cards well from his time in Seattle, but he has just 12 grabs (19 targets) with 187 yards and one touchdown in seven career games vs. Arizona. He is a decent WR4 or flex play in leagues of 12 or more fantasy teams.
