Niles Paul secured 1-of-2 targets for 11 yards in the Redskins' Week 12 loss to the 49ers.
On a day where Robert Griffin III managed 106 pathetic passing yards, Paul was unsurprisingly a fantasy non-factor. None of Washington's pass catchers can be viewed as "trustworthy" with their quarterback struggling so mightily. Nov 23 - 7:38 PM

Niles Paul had two catches for 18 yards in Sunday's Week 9 loss at Minnesota.

Oddly, the tight end was not a featured part of the gameplan in Robert Griffin III's return. Paul saw just two targets and Jordan Reed got just one. There's no reason to carry Paul into the Redskins' bye.
Nov 2 - 5:26 PM

Niles Paul caught three passes for 27 yards in the Redskins' Week 8 win over the Cowboys.

Paul caught all three of his targets. Paul was also flagged for a holding penalty, negating a 10-yard Alfred Morris run. He remains a part of the offense, even with Jordan Reed back, but not a big enough one to warrant a fantasy roster spot.
Oct 28 - 12:56 AM

Niles Paul caught 2-of-2 targets for 58 yards in Washington's Week 7 win over the Titans.

Paul caught a 50-yard pass on Washington's second play from scrimmage, but was invisible thereafter. With Jordan Reed playing well since his return from a hamstring injury, Paul is best left on waiver wires in 12-14 team leagues.
Oct 19 - 7:09 PM

Redskins TE Niles Paul secured 1-of-2 targets for seven yards in Sunday's Week 6 loss to Arizona.

With Jordan Reed back from his hamstring injury, Reed continued to play a lot of snaps in two-tight end packages but was the clear No. 2 option as a receiver behind Reed. With DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon, and Andre Roberts all commanding targets, Paul will struggle to provide any semblance of box-score consistency.
Oct 12 - 8:36 PM

Niles Paul caught one pass for six yards in the Redskins' Week 5 loss to the Seahawks.

Paul was targeted just twice on the night. He was awful as a blocker, missing a handful of blocks leading to his man notching the tackle on Alfred Morris and Roy Helu. Jordan Reed (hamstring) should be back for Week 6 against a Cardinals defense that bleeds points to tight ends, sending Paul back to the bench.
Oct 7 - 12:48 AM

Niles Paul (concussion) is active and will start Monday night's Week 5 game against the Seahawks.

Jordan Reed (hamstring) remains sidelined and is inactive. Paul will be a low-end TE1 against a Seahawks defense that has struggled with tight ends. Also inactive for the Redskins are Robert Griffin (ankle), CB Tracy Porter, S Trenton Robinson, CB Richard Crawford, OL Spencer Long, and WR Santana Moss.
Oct 6 - 7:07 PM

Niles Paul (concussion) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against Seattle.

Paul practiced in full on Friday and Saturday and has passed the final stages of his concussion protocol. He's expected to play despite the questionable tag. With Jordan Reed (hamstring) a game-time decision, Paul should draw start and will be a low-end TE1.
Oct 4 - 4:55 PM

Redskins TE Niles Paul (concussion) is expected to play on Monday night against Seattle.

Paul has passed the final stages of the NFL's concussion protocol. He got in a full practice on Friday. Jordan Reed (hamstring) practiced on a limited basis on Friday. He is uncertain for Monday.
Oct 4 - 10:45 AM

Updating a previous item, Niles Paul (concussion) fully participated in Redskins practice Friday.

If you're going to use a Redskins tight end in Week 5 against the Seahawks, Paul looks like your best bet. Jordan Reed (hamstring) was limited on Friday and appears "at best 50:50" to be available on Monday Night Football.
Oct 3 - 3:05 PM

Niles Paul (concussion) participated in individual drills at Redskins practice Friday.

Paul practiced on limited basis Thursday. He's trending in the right direction to play Monday night against the Seahawks. Because of the MNF game, the Redskins will not issue a final injury report until Saturday afternoon.
Oct 3 - 1:53 PM

Niles Paul (concussion) returned to Redskins practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

It puts Paul on track to suit up for Monday's game against the Seahawks. That's the good news for Paul's fantasy owners. The bad news is, Jordan Reed (hamstring) has also resumed practicing. Paul probably has a better shot at returning than Reed, but both are better than 50-50. The duo would threaten to form a value-draining timeshare if both active. We'd expect Reed to start.
Oct 2 - 3:08 PM

Niles Paul said the concussion he suffered last Thursday night was the first of his career.

It's good news as Paul makes his way through the NFL's protocol. However, he admitted to not remembering the hit that knocked him out against the Giants, always a bad sign. Paul's on-field outlook is also complicated by the impending return of Jordan Reed (hamstring), who projects to reclaim starting duties.
Oct 2 - 9:26 AM

Redskins TE Niles Paul (concussion) is not practicing Tuesday.

Paul remains in the concussion protocol and should be considered very questionable for Week 5. He has no memory of the hit that knocked him out. Jordan Reed's (hamstring) status is also up in the air. Logan Paulsen is currently Washington's only healthy tight end.
Sep 30 - 11:18 AM

Redskins TE Niles Paul has been officially diagnosed with a concussion.

It was clear as day to anyone watching the game. Paul got knocked out cold on the field, and was dazed as he was helped to the locker room. He might not be staring at a quick recovery, though he does have 10 days to get cleared for Week 5. If neither Paul nor Jordan Reed (hamstring) can go against the Seahawks, Logan Paulsen will get the call.
