Paul revealed he underwent successful shoulder surgery Friday.

EDGE Analysis

Paul's season ended when he was placed on injured reserve last week, although he was never much of a fantasy contributor in 2016 considering he only garnered two targets across eight games. Now known that the procedure required to heal his shoulder was a success, Paul figures to come back in full form for the 2017 campaign.

Paul (shoulder) has been placed on injured reserve, ESPN's John Keim reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paul got hurt during Washington's Week 8 tie with the Bengals and coach Jay Gruden clarified Monday that its a labrum issue he's dealing with. While him landing on IR leaves the Redskins without a tight end for the time being, teammate Derek Carrier's (knee) return to practice Monday represents a possible replacement before long.

Paul injured his shoulder during Sunday's game against the Bengals and is considered questionable to return.

EDGE Analysis

Paul appears to have avoided any kind of serious injury, while Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis will continue to be the top two options at tight end for the Redskins.

Paul was active but saw just six offensive snaps in Week 1.

EDGE Analysis

Paul saw the majority of his work come on special teams after not seeing a single target. As the No. 3 tight end in Washington, it seems unlikely that he has any fantasy value unless injuries force the team to play him more.

Paul (knee) should practice in the near future, the Redskins' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paul suffered a dislocated ankle precisely one year ago during preseason action, and his rehabilitation extended into the offseason. After opening training camp with the Redskins, he suffered a hyperextended right knee in Thursday's preseason defeat in Atlanta, according to the Washington Post. However, a lengthy absence doesn't appear to be a side effect of the current concern.

Paul is treading a fine line as he recovers from a dislocated left ankle, combining weight work and cardio at Washington's facility, Jake Kring-Schreifels of the team's official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paul entered training camp last summer as the No. 1 tight end in Washington, only to sustain a season-ending ankle injury in the first preseason game. The stars were aligned for Jordan Reed's breakout campaign following Logan Paulsen's (toe) placement on injured reserve within a week of Paul's malady. Further straining his standing within the TE corps was the recent acquisition of Vernon Davis, but Paul's ability to log snaps at an open position (fullback) should help him find a place in the offense next season.

Head coach Jay Gruden said at the recent NFL owners meetings that Paul (ankle) may not be healthy until training camp, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paul dislocated his left ankle during the 2015 preseason, ending his fifth campaign before it could commence. Gruden relayed that Paul must build up strength in the ankle while simultaneously regaining the weight lost over he course of rehabilitation, which could hold the tight end out of the entire offseason program. If he's a part of the 53-man roster out of training camp, he'll play second or third fiddle, at best, to starting TE Jordan Reed.

The Redskins re-signed Paul to a three-year contract worth nearly $10 million, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports.

With oft-injured starter Jordan Reed limited to 11 games in 2014, Paul turned in a handful of solid performances. The former Cornhusker isn't much of a run blocker and only stands 6-1, but he offers a nice combination of hands and route-running. However, Paul will probably have a limited role, so long as Reed stays healthy.

Paul caught one pass on two targets for 11 yards in Sunday's 17-13 loss at San Francisco.

Paul disappointed in an expanded role, with Jordan Reed (hamstring) inactive, although Robert Griffin completed just 11-of-19 passes for 106 yards. If Reed, who has been slow to recover from hamstring injuries in the past, is unable to go next week at Indianapolis, Paul could post decent numbers in a potential shootout.

With fellow TE Jordan Reed ruled out, Paul figures to be in line for an expanded role Sunday against the 49ers.

Paul, who caught three passes on five targets for 17 yards in Week 11, could thus return to the fantasy radar this week, and merits attention as a Week 12 injury fill-in, given the production that he enjoyed earlier this season when Reed was sidelined.
