TE Niles Paul out for the season, ankle injury-- Thu Aug 13 10:30 pm --
Redskins thin at tight end position
Niles Paul, who entered the game as the teamís starting tight end and only proven, healthy player at the position, carted off with a season-ending ankle injury. (Washington Post)
FF Today's Take:With Jordan Reed sidelined with yet another hamstring injury and Logan Paulsen battling a foot issue, the Redskins are currently thin at the tight end position. Reed is going to have an enormous opportunity now that Paul is lost for the season but his injury risk is through the roof.
TE Niles Paul leapfrogs Jordan Reed on depth chart-- Mon Aug 10 5:20 pm --
FF Today's Take:Coaches can sometimes play games with their depth chart, but Paul's commitment to improve each offseason (and ability to stay healthy) has apparently moved him ahead of the toolsy Reed, who has been unable to stay on the field very long in his brief NFL career. As a result, Paul has 40-50 catch upside for a player that is going undrafted at the moment. Dynasty owners should also take note and act accordingly.
