The group will look for more Week 15 against the Giants.
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.
So much for
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.
After leaving early Week 4 against the Giants after suffering a concussion, tight end
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.
