Paulsen is signing a one-year contract to remain with the Redskins, ESPN's Adam Caplin reports.

Competitive Edge Analysis

Paulsen has spent his entire six-year career with the Redskins, but missed all of last season after having toe surgery in August. A backup tight end, Paulsen will hope for a healthy 2016 campaign, but his fantasy stock is rather minuscule.

Washington Redskins tight end Logan Paulson will have season-ending surgery on his big toe Monday, according to the Washington Post. Tight end Niles Paul was already ruled out for the season with his own injury, leaving Jordan Reed as the top player on the depth chart, though he is also dealing with a hamstring injury.

Paulsen (foot) is active for Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers.

Paulsen was forced to leave Week 9's contest against the Vikings due to a bout with plantar fasciitis, but with the added rest following a Week 10 bye, the tight end will suit up for the Sunday afternoon tilt. Paulsen will work behind both Jordan Reed and Niles Paul, however, so there's not much fantasy value to find here in most formats, unless the 27-year-old is able to stumble upon an expanded role.

Paulsen left the game Sunday with a plantar fasciitis injury but was able to return, the Washington Post reports.

Paulsen is primarily a blocking tight end at this point behind Jordan Reed and Niles Paul on the depth chart.

Paulsen's teammate Niles Paul suffered a concussion during Thursday's 45-14 loss to the Giants, ESPN reports.

Paul had been filling in more than capably for Jordan Reed (hamstring), who may not be ready for Week 5. As the only other tight end on Washington's roster, Paulsen could have a surprisingly large role in the offense against the Seahawks next week, if neither Reed nor Paul is able to play. However, Paulsen isn't an especially talented receiver, and shouldn't be expected to match the production of a healthy Reed or Paul. Paulsen caught 3-of-3 targets for 28 yards in Thursday's blowout loss.

Paulsen caught two passes on two targets for seven yards in Week 3.

Niles Paul has seen the majority of tight end touches since Jourdan Reed (hamstring) went down in Week 1. Paulsen will still see time on the field primarily has a blocker and in the red zone.

Paulsen should see increased playing time with Jordan Reed (hamstring) sitting out in Week 2. Paulsen will compete with Niles Paul for snaps.

Paulsen is a better blocking tight end and bigger target but isn't as athletic as Paul. Expect Paulsen to be on the field during rushing downs and close to the end zone.

Logan Paulsen caught four passes for 32 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Giants.

Forced into a pass-catching role following Jordan Reed's concussion issues, Paulsen caught 28 passes for 267 yards with three touchdowns. The plodder will be back next year as an in-line, blocking complement to the explosive Reed.

Starting in place of Jordan Reed (concussion), Logan Paulsen caught three passes for 44 yards and a touchdown in Washington's Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.

Paulsen's line was nearly identical to his Week 13 numbers. He'll remain a low-end TE2 if Reed is unable to return for Week 15.

Logan Paulsen had three catches for 41 yards and a touchdown in Sunday night's Week 13 loss to the Giants.

Paulsen started again this week with Jordan Reed (concussion) sidelined, but played behind Fred Davis with the Redskins' running their no-huddle offense to open the game. His touchdown came on a 19-yard strike from Robert Griffin in the second quarter and he finished with four targets. Even if Reed doesn't return in Week 14, Paulsen won't be on the TE2 radar.
