Niles Paul TE WAS 2 Days

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.

Niles Paul TE WAS 27 Days

Paul caught 3-of-3 targets for 27 yards in Monday's 20-17 overtime win over the Cowboys.

With Jordan Reed healthy, Paul has just six receptions on seven targets over the last three games. Barring another injury to Reed, which could very well happen, Paul is only worth owning in deeper formats.

Paul caught two passes (on two targets) for 58 yards in Sunday's win over the Titans.

Paul secured both of his targets Sunday, including a game-long gain of 50 yards on one reception. However, with teammate Jordan Reed back in the fold, Paul's role has been reduced to the Redskins' No. 2 tight end.

Paul caught one pass on two targets for seven yards Sunday.

Paul saw limited action this week with the return of Jordan Reed. Expect Paul to see significantly less action now that Reed is back in the mix.

Paul (concussion) caught 1-of-2 targets for six yards in Monday's 27-17 loss to the Seahawks.

Paul struggled in a tough matchup, failing to make his case to keep a role once Jordan Reed (hamstring) returns, which could happen as soon as next week. If Reed isn't ready, Paul will have a nice bounce-back opportunity against an Arizona defense that has surrendered big games to tight ends in three of its four outings this season.

Paul (concussion) is listed as active Monday against the Seahawks, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

Paul practiced in full both Friday and Saturday, intimating that the concussion suffered on Sept. 25 was behind him. Because Jordan Reed (hamstring) remains out of commission, Paul will once again act as the main man at tight end in Week 5.

Paul (concussion) is listed as questionable for Monday's game against the Seahawks.

Despite practicing fully both Friday and Saturday, Paul remains officially questionable to suit up against Seattle. His chances of playing appear better than 50-50, however, as the 25-year-old did clear the final stage of testing in accordance with the NFL's concussion protocol Friday, and a Washington Post report suggested he is expected to play. Teammate Jordan Reed (hamstring) is also questionable after not practicing at all Saturday.

Paul (concussion) is expected to play Monday against the Seahawks, the Washington Post reports.

Eight days after suffering a concussion in the Redskins' loss to the Giants, Paul passed the final stage of testing in accordance with the league's concussion protocol, and was thus cleared to practice in full Friday. He appears headed for an official "probable" designation, while fellow tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring), who remained limited Friday, is uncertain for Week 5. Paul ranks second on the team with 21 catches and leads the team with 313 receiving yards.

Paul (concussion) practiced fully Friday and received full concussion clearance, the Washington Post reports.

With this news, it seems as if Paul is somewhat likely to suit up against the Seahawks on Monday. It's hard to see Kirk Cousins getting much going against the Seattle defense, but Paul might be an easier target against linebackers and safeties than the Washington wideouts might be against the Seattle corners, especially Richard Sherman.

Paul (concussion) was limited in practice Thursday.

With some individual activity under his belt this week, Paul may not have been cleared by the league's protocol for head injuries after failing to participate in the team portion of practice. Because Jordan Reed (hamstring) was similarly limited Thursday, the TE situation in Washington bears watching as Monday's game against the Seahawks draws near.
