Niles Paul TE WAS 4 Days
Paul had eight catches on 11 targets for 99 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Jaguars.
Logan Paulsen technically got the start in place of the injured Jordan Reed (hamstring), but he did not record a single target. The bad news is that starting quarterback Robert Griffin was knocked out of the game in the first quarter with an ankle injury, but the good news is that Paul caught his touchdown pass from backup Kirk Cousins, who could be the starter from now on. Paul has 185 receiving yards and a touchdown through two games and has a solid Week 3 matchup against the Eagles coming up.

With Jordan Reed out for Sunday's game against the Jaguars, Paul is in line for added opportunities in the Washington offense in Week 2, the team's official site reports.
Fellow TE Logan Paulsen is also in the mix for added work Sunday, but of the two, Paul offers more upside as a pass-catcher, after hauling in all four of his targets for 86 yards in Week 1's loss to the Texans.

Paul is expected to see more time on the field with Jordan Reed (hamstring) expected to miss time.
Paul will likely split time with Logan Paulson. Paul is the more athletic and a better pass catcher while Paulson is a better blocker.

Paul had one of the best games of his career in Sunday's loss at Houston, catching four passes on four targets for 86 yards, including a 48-yard reception.
Paul saw more action than normal because starting tight end Jordan Reed was knocked out of the game with a hamstring injury. Paul is still technically behind Logan Paulsen on the depth chart, but Paulsen had just two catches for zero yards. If you are in a deep league and desperate for a tight end, Paul might not be a bad option, especially if Reed is out for an extended period of time.

Paul left Monday's game with a hand injury, and is questionable to return.

According to the Washington Examiner, the "belief" is that Redskins TE Niles Paul could "learn fullback soon enough."
Beat writer John Keim isn't reporting that another position switch is imminent for the 2011 fifth-rounder, but it bodes poorly for Paul's future as a pass-catcher that the idea is even in the embryonic stages. Paul dropped multiple passes in the Redskins' preseason opener. He's headed for another season as a special teamer.

Niles Paul says his transition from wide receiver to tight end is going as "smooth as it can."
"The biggest challenge is blocking," Paul said. "Especially the combo blocks and the cut blocks." Paul could be featured as a receiver in some two tight end sets, but should see the majority of his snaps on special teams.

Niles Paul has continued to work at tight end during Redskins OTAs.
He's up to 235 pounds after playing in the low-220s at Nebraska, and beat writer John Keim suggests Paul could be a "major threat" on bootlegs as a catch-first tight end. Paul probably won't be on the fantasy radar in his first year at the position, but he could make Chris Cooley expendable behind Fred Davis.

Redskins WR Niles Paul was reportedly working with the tight-end group in this week's workouts.
Last year's fifth-rounder is thick at 225 pounds, but his 6'1" height is awfully low for a tight end. He's built more like a running back. Blocked at receiver by the team's free-agent signings, Paul is ticketed for another season of special teams work if he makes the roster.
