Player Notes
Nov 3 8:50pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson hauled in four catches for 42 yards on five targets in Sunday's loss to the Bills. The pedestrian outing marked his highest single-game catch and yardage totals since Week 3, which says a lot about how his season is going from a fantasy perspective. If the slight uptick in opportunities is a reflection of things to come in the event Dwayne Haskins remains his quarterback, perhaps Richardson can turn his season around and become a halfway dependable PPR option going forward. That's a very large "if," and fantasy owners will definitely want to see more before plucking him off the waiver wire.

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson caught four passes for 42 yards against the Buffalo Bills in Week 9. He was targeted five times during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Richardson posted more yards this week than he did in the previous four games but still has posted at least 40 yards in only one game this season. He probably should be avoided in leagues most weeks.

From TheHuddle

Nov 1 1:50pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson has been disappointingly unproductive this season, and that trend only figures to continue against the Bills this weekend. His grim outlook will be amplified if and when Dwayne Haskins is officially declared Washington's starter at QB in place of concussed Case Keenum. Haskins has looked woefully unprepared for NFL defenses in his limited in-game opportunities. Maybe a full week of practicing with the first team helps him out, but the Bills have shut down better offenses led by better quarterbacks this season. There is no evidence to suggest that Richardson is poised for an uptick in targets or production this week.

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson caught three passes for 34 yards on Thursday night against the Vikings. This is sadly a step in the right direction after he was held without a catch in each of his previous two outings. Not that Richardson should be anywhere near your fantasy roster in the first place, but with Dwayne Haskins potentially filling in for a concussed Case Keenum in Week 9 against the Bills, you can safely continue to ignore the Redskins wideout. He is and will continue to be a no-go in all formats until further notice.

From RotoBaller

Oct 25 1:13am ET

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson caught three passes (on four targets) for 34 yards on Thursday, Oct. 24, against the Minnesota Vikings.

Fantasy Spin: Washington had its moments in the first half when Case Keenum was at the helm, but once the veteran departed the offense went nowhere. It's just another chapter in a disappointing season for Richardson, who has topped 40 yards receiving in a game just once. He carries zero fantasy value.

From TheHuddle

Oct 23 10:30am ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson has a relatively favorable matchup on his hands Thursday, but has done nothing this season to convince fantasy owners he can capitalize. The Vikings are allowing an average of 15 receptions and 159 yards per game to opposing receivers, along with 11 total touchdowns. Richardson hasn't caught a pass for two straight weeks, and Terry McLaurin is a productive target vacuum in Washington's offense, so the reliability scale tips in the latter's direction. As much as the Redskins would probably like to involve someone other than McLaurin and diversify their attack, Richardson simply cannot be trusted as a fantasy play in any format based on his output to this point in the season.

From RotoBaller

Oct 20 6:50pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson was held without a catch for the second straight game in Sunday's loss to the 49ers. While the Redskins barely attempted any passes to begin with in a bad-weather game, Richardson's total lack of involvement can't be given a pass just because of rain or a tough defensive matchup. He is an afterthought in a Redskins offense that isn't any good with or without looking to him. Ignore him in all fantasy formats until further notice.

From RotoBaller

Oct 18 4:50pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 3, has caught three or fewer passes in four of six games, and has broken 40 receiving yards just once. His next opponent is a 49ers Defense that is certain to highlight all of those shortcomings for another week, as they have allowed opposing wideouts to catch an average of nine passes a game. Terry McLaurin figures to see over half of that average on his own, leaving little else for Richardson or any other Washington pass-catcher.

From RotoBaller

Oct 13 8:10pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson was targeted four times on Sunday, hauling in zero of them. This would qualify as a huge disappointment in a favorable matchup if Richardson had done anything of consequence in recent weeks, but he had only caught five passes for 28 yards in his last two games combined. He has just one truly serviceable fantasy outing to his name in 2019, and it came in Week 3. Richardson simply can't be trusted as a fantasy asset, and is worth dropping in all formats if you take a look at his upcoming schedule: 49ers, Vikings, Bills.

From RotoBaller

Oct 13 4:43pm ET

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson had no receptions on four targets and one run for no gain in Week 6 against the Miami Dolphins.

Fantasy Spin: Wideouts not named Terry McLaurin were essentially a non-factor in this one. Richardson will look to bounce back in Week 7 against the San Francisco 49ers, but he isn't someone to rely upon in most fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Oct 11 6:20pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson has had one solid fantasy outing: an eight-catch, 83-yard game capped off with a touchdown in Week 3. He has failed to eclipse 20 receiving yards in three of his other four games, and one of those came in a week when Terry McLaurin was inactive. Case Keenum did tend to look his way relatively often to start the year; Richardson saw at least seven targets in two of three games started and finished by Keenum. Still, the overall usage and production suggests slotting Richardson into fantasy lineups would be a lot like running with scissors. Even a favorable matchup with the Dolphins isn't enough to consider him a safe play.

From RotoBaller

Oct 6 5:40pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson caught both of his targets for 14 total yards on Sunday. To say that Richardson was a non-factor in the loss is an understatement, but one that must be applied to all of his teammates as well. He has yet to produce any truly fantasy-friendly stat lines through five games, and it's only going to get worse with the team around him. His next opponent is the Dolphins, which theoretically gives the Redskins offense a chance to finally put up numbers. Either way, Richardson can be left out of the fantasy equation for the time being.

From RotoBaller

Oct 4 3:10pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson is not a reliable fantasy option this week whether Terry McLaurin plays or not. Last week, in an extremely favorable matchup against a porous Giants pass defense, the Redskins looked his way five times. He caught three of them for 14 yards. Needless to say, the Patriots present a much greater challenge than the Giants. With Colt McCoy starting for the Redskins in Week 5, there is no level of volume potential for Richardson that could give fantasy owners any faith in him. It's best to look elsewhere for a PPR flex.

Sep 29 6:40pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson had all the makings of a week-winning fantasy play coming into Sunday's matchup with the Giants. New York had been one of the league's worst pass defenses, Terry McLaurin was inactive, and Case Keenum had thrown multiple touchdown passes in each of the Redskins' first three games. In the cruel and unforgiving world of fantasy football, this translated into three catches for 14 yards on five targets for Richardson. Richardson is not to blame, as the Redskins committed more turnovers than they scored points, but this performance just further amplifies how unpredictable the receiver's fantasy output is on a weekly basis. His Week 5 opponent is the Patriots, once again rendering him a bench occupant at best on fantasy rosters.

From RotoBaller

Sep 29 4:43pm ET

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson caught three passes for 14 yards against the New York Giants in Week 4. He was targeted five times during the game.

Fantasy Spin: Richardson tied for the most targets during the game but was not able to find much success. He will need to build chemistry with Dwayne Haskins and could be avoided fantasy leagues for now.

From TheHuddle

Sep 27 3:00pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson could be looking at the target share of a number-one if Terry McLaurin doesn't suit up on Sunday. McLaurin is dealing with a hamstring injury, and even if he plays, we might not be seeing the same kid who has scored a touchdown in each of his first three NFL games. Richardson is coming off his best game as a Redskin, having hauled in eight of nine targets for 83 yards and a touchdown against the Bears on Monday night. He's about to take on a Giants team that has surrendered a league-high 786 yards to wideouts, and has also permitted six touchdowns to the position. Richardson is a solid flex candidate with a ton of upside if McLaurin is inactive or hobbled.

From RotoBaller

Sep 24 7:30am ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson finished with a game-high eight receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown during the loss to Chicago on Monday night. With the Bears Defense making life difficult for quarterback Case Keenum, the veteran still made the most of his time on the field as he was targeted nine times in this one. With two touchdowns on the season, Richardson has been productive even with a weak Redskins' offense, but his long-term appeal may decrease somewhat if tight end Jordan Reed (concussion) can return this season despite rumblings of retirement.

From RotoBaller

Sep 24 12:23am ET

Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson racked up game highs with eight grabs and 83 yards in Week 3 against the Chicago Bears and he also added a touchdown on nine targets.

Fantasy Spin: A lot of Richardson's production came in the second half as the Redskins passed their way back to respectability, but fantasy owners don't care when the stats come. It is a good sign that the Redskins are struggling, however, as if they continue to get behind early and abandon the run, there are more targets for Richardson and the receivers. The Redskins travel to meet the Giants in Week 4.

From TheHuddle

Sep 20 8:00am ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson has seen just 10 targets in two weeks. Despite Case Keenum having attempted 81 passes, Richardson just hasn't seen enough volume to believe he's in line for a big night against the Bears on Monday. Terry McLaurin, Trey Quinn, and Chris Thompson have combined for a target share near 60%, making it clear (at least for the time being) that this pass offense runs through the three of them. Richardson is a touchdown-dependent receiver that allowed just 14 of those to wideouts in 2018.

From RotoBaller

Sep 15 8:40pm ET

Washington Redskins wide receiver Paul Richardson salvaged a dismal fantasy day with a nine-yard touchdown catch late in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Cowboys. His final line for the day was three catches on three targets for 16 yards. After two weeks, it's abundantly clear that Terry McLaurin is the go-to target for Case Keenum. Trey Quinn is a decent secondary PPR option, but Richardson's overall production in the team's first two games has been discouraging. He'll have to deal with the Bears secondary in Week 3, rendering him a fantasy afterthought for at least another week.
