Paul Richardson will need season-ending surgery

Paul Richardson suffered shoulder and knee injuries that will require surgery. He will miss the remainder of the season.

Fantasy Impact

Richardson has been a fringe fantasy receiver and outside of his six touchdown season last year, 2018 was much of the same despite changing teams. Josh Doctson could see a slight bump in targets while Maurice Harris is worth a flyer for those looking to add help at the receiver position. The team did also suffer major injuries to their offensive line so Alex Smith and the entire offense will receive downgrades in their fantasy output.

Paul Richardson catches two passes in loss

Washington wide receiver Paul Richardson caught two of his six targets for 16 yards in Sunday's 38-14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Richardson was battling knee and shoulder injuries coming into the game and has been battling a number of injuries for much of the season. His first season in Washington is not going as hoped, as he now has 20 receptions for 262 yards and two touchdowns through the first half of the season.

Paul Richardson questionable with injuries

Paul Richardson is dealing with shoulder and knee injuries and is questionable to play this weekend against the Falcons.

Fantasy Impact

Richardson is expected to again play through his injuries. He and the Redskins have a great matchup, but he's hard to trust given his inconsistent production. While he will benefit from the absences of Chris Thompson and Jamison Crowder, he's not much more than a flex play in deeper leagues at this point.

Paul Richardson catches just two passes on Sunday

Washington wide receiver Paul Richardson caught two passes for 34 yards in Sunday's win over the New York Giants.

Fantasy Impact

Richardson was questionable coming into the game but was able to start. He caught just two of his five targets and was held under 40 yards receiving for the second game in a row. Washington faces a struggling Atlanta defense in Week 9, so Richardson does have good odds of bouncing back.

Paul Richardson active for Week 8

Paul Richardson (knee) is active for the Redskins' Week 8 game against the Giants.

Fantasy Impact

With Jamison Crowder still out, Richardson is essentially the number-one option in the passing game for Washington. Despite the plus matchup, owners would be hard-pressed to rely on Richardson at this point.
