| A former second round pick in the 2014 season, the Seahawks are still waiting for some return - any return - on that investment. He played in all but one game this past season but Richardson caught just 21 total passes for 288 yards and one touchdown in the regular season. While he did flash some big play ability late in the season, Richardson is still extremely raw and will be fighting for playing time with Kearse and other depth options at the position.
It's very likely that Richardson will be out-produced on the season by Kearse, but fantasy owners should hope that he does beat Kearse out as the team's third receiver. While he's not a big target at just 6'0" and around 185 lbs, there really isn't a big-bodied receiver on the roster aside from tight end Jimmy Graham. Richardson has the physical skills to go up and make plays on jump balls, including making some crazy circus catches, so there's reason to hope that he could eventually end up being one of Wilson's favorite red zone targets.
He's not worth drafting at the moment in anything other than deep best-ball formats, but Richardson remains a player to keep your eye on from a fantasy standpoint. If he starts to get consistent playing time, he could develop into an intriguing fantasy option.

Seattle receiver is tired of being on practice squad

|Receiver Kasen Williams picked up right where he left off last week in the Seahawks win over the Chargers in their preseason opener - dominating defensive backs on a mission to prove that he deserves a spot on the 53-man roster. (Seattle Times)|
FFToday's Take: With Paul Richardson and Tyler Lockett sitting out last night's preseason game, it allowed Williams an opportunity to impress coaches and he did just that. He's been on the practice squad the last two seasons but has turned heads through two pre-season games. He's capable of landing the 4th or 5th wide receiver spot in Seattle, which doesn't come with any re-draft league value but he's a name worth watching in dynasty leagues

Paul Richardson emerging as No. 3 over Jermaine Kearse
By: Antonio D'Arcangelis | Tue Aug 8, 10:40 am
|ESPN is reporting that Paul Richardson appears to be the No. 3 behind Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett (leg), and that this could be the best group of pass-catching weapons that Russell Wilson has ever had.
FFToday's Take: The Seahawks' quarterback has showcased the diverse array of weapons at his disposal, including the speed of Lockett and Richardson and mismatches with guys like Graham and C.J. Prosise. Baldwin presents a problem for defenses operating out of the slot. This looks to be another good bet for fantasy production, and Wilson is a safe bet for solid numbers with plenty of upside.
