The landing spot was an odd one for Richardson, as he might be the fifth option on the depth chart behind Jamison Crowder, Jordan Reed, Chris Thompson, and maybe even Josh Doctson. They apparently brought him in to be the downfield threat in the offense, but Richardson wasn't much of a separator last year with the Seahawks, but did rack up nine plays of more than 20 yards. Alex Smith was the best deep passer in the NFL last year, though it probably helps to have Tyreek Hill scooting down the field. Richardson is likely to be a very boom-or-bust fantasy option, making him just a high-upside bye week filler.

Paul Richardson expected to sign with Redskins

Wide receiver Paul Richardson is expected to sign with the Washington Redskins sometime this week, according to NFL Insider Adam Caplan on Twitter. NFL Network's Mike Garafalo reports that the agreement is for a five-year, $40 million deal, with $20 million in guarantees.

Fantasy Impact

Caplan reports that Washington has been looking to add a "speed" wide receiver to line up opposite Josh Doctson, and Richardson certainly fits that bill. With such a large contract being offer, the Redskins are surely hoping they can tap into more of the young wide receiver's speed and potential. Richardson caught 44 passes for 703 yards and six touchdowns last season.
