Paul, 25, caught 39 passes for 507 yards and one touchdown last season. He has 735 career receiving yards and two scores since joining the league in 2011.
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.
