    Washington's backup receivers do little Week 14

    Washington's backup receivers did little Week 14 against the Rams. Santana Moss managed to pick up some slack with DeSean Jackson out. He finished second on the team in receiving yards, picking up 43 yards on three receptions. Tight end Jordan Reed also had three catches, gaining 25 yards. Andre Roberts hauled in two balls, picking up 11 yards. Niles Paul had one catch for 7 yards. Ryan Grant also had one catch. He finished with 4 yards. The group will look for more Week 15 against the Giants.

    Timeshare limiting Redskins tight ends

    The Redskins are making use of both Niles Paul and Jordan Reed, which makes it difficult for Fantasy owners to lean on either at this point. The players combined for 10 targets in Week 8 against the Cowboys, seven of which went Reed's way, however, that doesn't mean Reed was the bigger part of the offense. Reed actually played just 39 percent of the team's snaps Monday, compared to 57 percent for Paul. That represents a reversal from the previous week, when it was Reed who played the majority of snaps while Paul took a backseat. Reed has been featured more in the passing game than Paul over the last few weeks, but hasn't exactly lit it up, with just 9 Fantasy points in standard scoring over the last two weeks. With his role still somewhat limited, Reed is no sure-fire must-start Fantasy option at this point.

    Redskins get offensive contributions Week 8

    The Redskins got a slew of offensive contributions in Monday's overtime win at Dallas. Among them, running back Roy Helu ran five times for 29 yards and caught both his targets for 14 yards. Running back Silas Redd had a 5-yard rush. Tight end Niles Paul caught all three of his targets for 27 yards, and fullback Darrel Young had a 12-yard catch. Wideout Andre Roberts secured just one of his five targets for 11 yards. They'll all visit the Vikings in Week 9.

    Jordan Reed pushes Niles Paul aside

    So much for Niles Paul, I guess. Redskins tight end Jordan Reed, the intended starter at the beginning of the year, returned from a four-week absence for a hamstring injury Week 6 at Arizona and had a game to remember, catching eight passes for 92 yards. He also led the team in targets with 11. Paul, meanwhile, had one catch 7 yards. He was targeted twice. Paul mostly thrived in Reed's absence, averaging 4.5 catches for 58.3 yards in the four games Reed missed (and that's not even counting the four catches for 86 yards he had in Week 1, when Reed first went down), but the Redskins had been phasing him out in the weeks leading up to Reed's return. This one is pretty straightforward for Fantasy owners. Cut Paul and make sure Reed isn't available in your league.

    Niles Paul becoming a worrisome play

    After leaving early Week 4 against the Giants after suffering a concussion, tight end Niles Paul played 80 percent of the Redskins' snaps Week 5 against Seattle, but you wouldn't know it by his production. He had two passes thrown his way, catching one for 6 yards. It's a discouraging development with Jordan Reed inching closer to a return. The projected starter at the beginning of the year, Reed came close to returning from a three-week absence for a hamstring strain Monday. The Redskins decided to give him another week. Paul had been good enough in Reed's absence, averaging 5.3 catches for 78.3 yards in his first four games, to perhaps hold off Reed even after he returns, but this performance could change things. It's all speculation at this point, but I might avoid the Redskins' tight end situation altogether if I had viable alternatives on the waiver wire.
