Niles Paul taking advantage of Jordan Reed's absence
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Redskins tight end Niles Paul entered this season with 14 receptions through his first 44 NFL games, so his ascension to the top of the tight end ranks has been a huge surprise, to say the least. Can he keep it up?

Washington has thrown the ball around a ton this season, as the team's 121 passing attempts through three games ranks fifth in the NFL. 24 of those passes have gone Paul's way, and he has hauled in 18 of them for 253 yards, landing him squarely in the top-10 in receiving yards so far. Only Jimmy Graham has more yards than Paul, among tight ends.

Unfortunately, one player looms large with the potential to derail Paul's breakout season. Fellow tight end Jordan Reed has not played or practiced since leaving Week 1's game with a hamstring injury, but he was supposed to be the team's big breakout candidate this season. If he gets back to health, Paul's time in the spotlight could come to an end.

Fortunately for Paul's Fantasy owners, Reed's recovery from his injury has been extremely slow. Paul looks like a must-start Fantasy option, at least as long as Reed is out, so watch those practice reports.

Niles Paul contributes yet again
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Redskins tight end Niles Paul put together another solid performance Sunday, in a 37-34 loss to the Eagles.

Paul, who has quickly emerged as a favorite of quarterback Kirk Cousins, was targeted nine times in the passing game. He hauled in six of those passes for 68 yards, including a long of 37 yards.

Paul has been a solid contributor in each of the team's first three games, and will look to keep that going in Week 4 against the Giants. He has 18 receptions for 253 yards heading into Thursday's game.

Niles Paul goes off in blowout win
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Redskins tight end Niles Paul took advantage of the absence of Jordan Reed for a breakout performance in a 41-10 win over the Jaguars in Week 2.

Paul followed up his 86-yard showing in Week 1 by going off for a team-high 99 yards Sunday. He hauled in eight of 11 passes thrown his way to lead the team in catches as well, including a 2-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.

Paul has emerged as one of the top options in the team's passing game through two games, having recorded 12 receptions for 185 yards. He will try to keep it going in Week 3 against the Eagles.

Niles Paul preparing for starting role
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

With Redskins tight end Jordan Reed dealing with a strained hamstring, Niles Paul is preparing to be the primary tight end Week 2 against Jacksonville, reports the Washington Post. Paul led Washington with 86 receiving yards on four catches Week 1, but lost a fumble at the Houston 7.

Primarily a special teams player, Paul is suddenly staring at a big opportunity.
