Paul finished his 2017 season with 13 receptions for 94 yards across 14 games.

EDGE Analysis

Paul was an afterthought in the Redskins' passing attack this season, especially considering starting tight end Jordan Reed (hamstring) only managed to play six games. Paul now hits the open market after spending the past six seasons in Washington. In 2014 he seemed poised to compete for the starting tight end role after posting 507 receiving yards but has since fallen off the map due to various injuries. It seems unlikely the Redskins will have much interest in retaining him given the slew of other options they have on the roster at the moment.

Paul recorded three receptions for 12 yards in Thursday's loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Paul has seen an increased offensive role over the past few weeks with Jordan Reed (hamstring), recording eight receptions in the past three contests. However, he only managed 17 offensive reps Thursday night, a big drop off from the 33 reps he averaged in the two previous weeks. Once Reed returns, expect Paul to see even fewer opportunities on offense.

Paul hauled in three of his five targets for 16 yards in Thursday's win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

Vernon Davis has been the biggest benefactor of Jordan Reed's hamstring injury, but Paul ended Thanksgiving night as the tight end with the most targets. Paul now has seven receptions for 56 yards through nine games this season. Those numbers don't leave much to be desired in most fantasy leagues, but with Reed's status still up in the air, Paul could continue to see increased reps for the next few weeks.

Paul (concussion) is active for Sunday's contest at New Orleans.

EDGE Analysis

Paul is putting an end to a two-game absence, during which he recovered from a concussion. He could earn a decent role behind Vernon Davis due to the absence of Jordan Reed (hamstring), but Paul boasts just two receptions (on three targets) for 29 yards this season.

Paul (concussion) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Saints, Master Tesfatsion of The Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paul has missed the Redskins' last two games with the head injury, but the team will wait and see if he can clear the NFL's concussion protocol in time to suit up Sunday. If active in Week 11, Paul would serve as the top backup at tight end to Vernon Davis with Jordan Reed (hamstring) set to miss a third consecutive contest.

Paul (concussion) is listed as inactive Sunday versus the Vikings, John Keim of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

The concussion protocol remains Paul's domain, which is unfortunate due to Jordan Reed's (hamstring) own absence. The preceding will allow Vernon Davis uninhibited access to tight-end reps, but rookie Jeremy Sprinkle could also earn his most significant run of the season.

Paul (concussion), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Vikings, isn't expected to play in the contest, Dianna Russini of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

It looks as though the Redskins will be down two tight ends for the second straight week, as starter Jordan Reed (hamstring) is also trending toward being unavailable Sunday. Paul, the third-string option at the position, remains in the concussion protocol and was only able to put in one limited practice this week.

The Redskins have listed Paul (concussion) as questionable for Sunday's tilt against the Vikings, Stephen Czarda of the Redskins' official website reports.

EDGE Analysis

Paul missed the Redskins' Week 10 win over the Seahawks due to a concussion, and is looking like a game-time decision Sunday. Jermy Sprinkle would figure to see some more time on special teams, as well as providing tight end depth should Paul ultimately remain sidelined.

Paul (concussion) was ruled out of Sunday's game against the Seahawks.

EDGE Analysis

Paul will miss his first game of the season after sustaining a concussion last Sunday against the Cowboys. His absence leaves just Vernon Davis and Jeremy Sprinkle as the team's only healthy options at tight end since Jordan Reed (hamstring) won't be playing either.

Paul (concussion) did not practice Wednesday.

EDGE Analysis

Given the nature of head injuries, there's no guarantee Paul will be ready for Sunday's contest. The backup tight end will have to pass through the league's concussion protocol before he can return to action. We should have a clearer understanding of his progress later in the week.
