Paul Richardson Fantasy Football News 2018

Redskins WR Paul Richardson needs surgery for an AC joint injury in his shoulder and will miss the rest of the season, HC Jay Gruden announced Monday. Richardson has been a non-factor this year, topping 50 yards in just 1 of 7 outings. But it's another blow to an injury-ravaged WR corps. With Jamison Crowder still dealing with his ankle injury, Washington is down to Josh Doctson, Maurice Harris and Michael Floyd atop the depth chart.

Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Giants. WR Paul Richardson, meanwhile, is questionable with his shoulder and knee injuries. Continue to avoid the Washington WR corps if at all possible.

Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) is inactive for today’s game against the Cowboys. WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) is also out, leaving Josh Doctson, Maurice Harris, Brian Quick and Michael Floyd as Washington’s WRs. TE Jordan Reed should be busy again after seeing 9 targets last week.

Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Cowboys. WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) is listed as doubtful and is unlikely to play. That leaves Josh Doctson, Maurice Harris, Brian Quick and Michael Floyd as Washington’s WRs. TE Jordan Reed should be busy again after seeing 9 targets last week.

Redskins WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) is inactive for today’s game against the Panthers. WRs Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) and Josh Doctson (heel) are active and figure to serve as the team’s top 2 WRs. They’re tough to like as more than WR4s, though. We’re expecting TE Jordan Reed to be busy today.

Redskins WRs Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee), Jamison Crowder (ankle) and Josh Doctson (heel) are all listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Panthers. We'll see who's able to give it a go around noon ET on Sunday, but none of these guys are reliable fantasy options. TE Jordan Reed could be busy this weekend.

Redskins WRs Paul Richardson (knee) and Jamison Crowder (ankle) missed Wednesday's walkthrough. Richardson was sidelined late in Monday night's loss to the Saints with his injury; we didn't notice Crowder get hurt. We'll keep an eye on both guys the rest of the week, but neither is much of a fantasy option.

Redskins WR Paul Richardson suffered a right knee injury in the 2nd half of Monday night's game against the Saints. The broadcast showed him with a big wrap on the knee on the bench. We'll look for an update on the injury.

Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) is active for today’s game against the Colts. He reportedly injured his shoulder in practice this week, adding some risk to his outlook. Richardson tallied just 22 yards in the opener but did play 77% of the offensive snaps. He’s a flier in a plus matchup vs. Indy.

Redskins WR Paul Richardson (shoulder) is listed as questionable for this weekend’s game against the Colts. HC Jay Gruden said Friday that he’s not “overly concerned” about Richardson’s status. This is a nice matchup, but Richardson mustered just 22 yards and in the opener and is now banged up. He’s a shaky fantasy play.

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Washington is expected to sign WR Paul Richardson to a 5-year, $40 million deal, with $20 million guaranteed. Richardson played all 16 games for the 1st time last season, ranking 3rd among Seahawks in targets (80) and 4th in receptions (44). He's an intriguing talent who will turn just 26 in April, but Richardon's best asset is arguably his deep speed. That fits what Washington was reportedly looking for on the outside opposite WR Josh Doctson, but it doesn't match well with what new QB Alex Smith has been for most of his career. Combine that with the presence of Doctson, WR Jamison Crowder and TE Jordan Reed, and it's tough to like Richardson as more than a WR5 come fantasy football draft time. Smith did, at least, enjoy some deep-ball success in 2017. We'll see where Richardson settles in our 2018 projections in a few months.

Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (groin) is active for tonight's game against the Cardinals. He didn't practice on Tuesday or Wednesday, and ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier today that he could be limited. Richardson also figures to see a fair amount of CB Patrick Peterson. He's a shaky WR3.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (groin) is expected to play tonight but "could be limited some." Richardson was already a low-floor fantasy play, averaging just 4.9 targets per game on the season. Any reduction in snaps would only make him a riskier Week 10 fantasy start.

Seahawks WR Paul Richardson (groin) is questionable for Thursday night's game against the Cardinals. He wasn't listed on the injury report Monday but was sidelined on Tuesday and Wednesday. We'll find out Richardson's status by 7 pm ET tomorrow. He'll be a risky WR3 if active.

Seahawks WR Paul Richardson fractured the ring finger on his right hand on the 1st drive of Sunday's game against the 49ers. The bone punctured through the skin. Richardson got it stitched up in the locker room and returned shortly thereafter. He finished with 2 catches for 19 yards and the game-winning TD. Richardson played just 48% of Seattle's offensive snaps, which was likely due at least in part to the injury. Considering he returned to this game, Richardson figures to play against the Titans this weekend. But the finger will make him a risky fantasy bet.

The Jets have acquired WR Jermaine Kearse and a 2nd-round pick from the Seahawks in exchange for DT Sheldon Richardson. Kearse is coming off a brutal 2017 season and likely would have been cut if Seattle hadn't found a trade partner. He's, at best, a #3 NFL WR but could certainly carve out a significant role in New York's pathetic WR corps. Still, we wouldn't spend a fantasy pick on Kearse. His departure leaves Doug Baldwin, Paul Richardson, Tyler Lockett and Kasen Williams as the Seahawks' top 4 WRs.

Seahawks WR Paul Richardson was a limited participant in practice on Tuesday, just 2 days after spraining his shoulder in the preseason opener. “Paul jumped right back on the practice field today, really surprised us, because he did bang his shoulder pretty good,” HC Pete Carroll said. “He had a good day’s work; I don’t know what that means for [the 2nd preseason game this] weekend, but in no pads today, he was able to get in a lot of work and was at top speed, so that’s terrific.” Carroll also confirmed that Richardson should be ready in plenty of time for Week 1. He'd been running with the starters but will need to fend off Tyler Lockett for the #2 WR spot behind Doug Baldwin.

Seahawks WR Paul Richardson left in the 1st quarter of Sunday night's preseason opener after suffering a sprained A/C joint in his right shoulder, the Seattle Times reports. "It’s going to be a bit," HC Pete Carroll said after the game. "I don’t want to throw a number on it but he got hurt." Richardson has been working as a starter ahead of Jermaine Kearse. Seattle played against the Chargers without WRs Doug Baldwin (ankle), Tyler Lockett (fibula recovery) and Amara Darboh (sternum).

Seahawks WR Tyler Lockett will miss the rest of the season after breaking his leg/ankle in Saturday's loss to the Cardinals. It was a nasty-looking injury and will require surgery, HC Pete Carroll confirmed afterward. We should get a more concrete rehab timeline in the coming days. Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse and Paul Richardson will serve as Seattle's top 3 WRs the rest of the way.
