Paulsen caught two passes for 7 yards. Davis caught one pass for 9 yards. Both players filled in for Jordan Reed, who was shut down for the season with a concussion. They'll take on the Giants Week 17.
Starting again with Jordan Reed sidelined for a fourth straight game because of a concussion,
Paulsen did have a season-high seven targets, though, tied for third-most on the team. He'll look to get back in the end zone Week 16 against the Cowboys, assuming Reed is again out.
Whichever player starts at tight end for the Redskins will have a favorable matchup. The Falcons rank 20th against the pass, allowing 245.8 yards per game, and have given up the seventh-most Fantasy points to tight ends.
Of course, matchup data only counts for so much. The one with the greatest say in how the Redskins tight ends perform in Week 15 is quarterback Kirk Cousins, who is starting over Robert Griffin III for the first time this season. Cousins played the entire fourth quarter last week against the Chiefs but was inefficient, completing 7 of 16 passes for 59 yards.
If Reed ends up playing, his upside makes him almost impossible to sit in Fantasy, but in the more likely scenario that Paulsen plays, he's a gamble in Fantasy despite the favorable matchup and touchdown-scoring streak.
