Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Paul Richardson will be "fine" after suffering a dislocated finger in Sunday's win over San Francisco.

Richardson didn't look entirely comfortable playing through the injury in Week 2, though he came around in the second half with a late touchdown. Regardless, it doesn't look like he's in danger of missing Week 3 against Tennessee. We'll see how the Seahawks list him on the injury report.
Sep 20 - 4:09 PM

Paul Richardson hauled in 2-of-5 targets for 19 yards and the game-winning touchdown Week 2 against the 49ers.

Richardson suffered a broken ring finger which limited him in the first half, but he showed up with the game on the line. With Russell Wilson scrambling for his life, Richardson found space on the left side of the end zone and came down with the game-winning score. Despite the touchdown, Richardson was out-targeted by Tyler Lockett 9-to-5 and appears to be at best the 2a to Lockett's 2b in a passing game which is broken. He will be difficult to trust next week in Tennessee.
Sep 17 - 7:53 PM

Paul Richardson played 41-of-49 snaps in the Seahawks' Week 1 loss to the Packers.

Richardson finished behind just Doug Baldwin in the receiver snap totals and saw 15 more plays than Tyler Lockett. Richardson also tied with Jimmy Graham for the team lead in targets with seven. Perhaps Lockett's role expands as he gets back into game shape, but as of now, Richardson is Seattle's No. 2 receiver.
Sep 11 - 10:04 AM

Paul Richardson caught 4-of-7 targets for 59 yards in the Seahawks' Week 1 loss to the Packers.

It was Richardson's most yards in a regular season game since 2014. He also led the team in targets. The highlight was an acrobatic 28-yard grab in the fourth quarter where Richardson made an excellent mid-air adjustment. The Seahawks are walking the walk with Richardson as their No. 2 receiver, but it might not be the most profitable position in fantasy with Doug Baldwin and Jimmy Graham vacuuming up the money looks. Richardson is an end-of-bencher in 12-team leagues.
Sep 10 - 8:21 PM

Seahawks WR Paul Richardson is listed as a starter on the team's Week 1 depth chart.

Tyler Lockett is listed with the second-team offense. It means Richardson will begin the year in two-receiver sets opposite Doug Baldwin. Richardson was a fixture in offseason puff pieces, though he was limited in the preseason by a shoulder issue. The 2014 second-rounder's career has been derailed by injury, but he's justifiable as an end-of-roster flier in 12-14 team leagues.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Richardson is an interesting tournament target in an ideal matchup with the Packers. He’ll see plenty of Quinten Rollins (46.2 PFF grade) and Davon House (40.5) on the outside Sunday. The latter allowed 0.53 fantasy points per route defended in 2016, the worst rate among all Week 1 starters. Richardson’s $3.7k price tag on DraftKings is very affordable and his projected ownership is almost non-existent. On top of that, the game has a 51-point total and the Seahawks are underdogs.
Sep 5 - 5:30 PM

Paul Richardson caught 1-of-3 targets for five yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game.

It was a quiet night for Richardson, but he did again work with the first-team offense. That could change once Tyler Lockett returns, but Richardson should at worst push Jermaine Kearse for snaps and targets early in the season. With big-play upside, Richardson is worth a flier in deeper formats.
Aug 25 - 11:16 PM

Paul Richardson (shoulder) returned to practice Wednesday.

Richardson suffered a very minor AC joint sprain in his shoulder in the preseason opener. There was some initial concern, but Richardson avoided serious injury. Richardson has been working as the No. 2 receiver while Tyler Lockett works his way back from last year's injury. Richardson should hold a role in three-wide sets, with Jermaine Kearse taking a back seat on offense.
Aug 16 - 2:07 PM

Speaking Tuesday, Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said there was "no question" Paul Richardson (shoulder) will be ready for Week 1.

Richardson sprained his AC joint in Sunday's preseason opener, but has evidently received good news in the 48 hours since. It's possible Richardson is held out of the rest of the exhibition slate, but the Seahawks are confident he will be in good working order for the opener. Richardson has been spending time as the 'Hawks' No. 2 receiver in camp, but this puts that in jeopardy.
Aug 15 - 5:00 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Sunday night Paul Richardson will be "out a bit" after suffering an AC joint sprain in his shoulder.

Richardson went down at the end of a diving, 25-yard catch. Initial fears were regarding his collarbone, so it's good news Richardson has a mere week-to-week injury. We wouldn't expect to see him again before Week 1, however.
Aug 14 - 1:25 AM

Paul Richardson exited Sunday's preseason opener with an apparent shoulder injury.

Richardson fell hard on his shoulder at the end of a 25-yard catch, suffering an injury in what may have been the collarbone area. We would be surprised if he returned. Richardson has been running as a starter in practice and started Sunday night's exhibition, catching two passes for 30 yards.
Aug 13 - 8:34 PM

ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia reports Paul Richardson remains ahead of Jermaine Kearse on the depth chart.

Richardson was working ahead of Kearse early in camp, and that remained the case during a mock game on Monday. Tyler Lockett (leg) will likely take over No. 2 duties once he gets back to full health, but it looks like Richardson is the favorite for the No. 3 job. After closing last season with a bang, Richardson is worth a look in deeper leagues.

Paul Richardson has been running ahead of Jermaine Kearse in two-receiver sets at Seahawks camp.

Finally healthy, 2014 second-round pick Richardson flashed big-play ability over Seattle's final four games last season, including the playoffs. He made numerous contested catches, several with one hand. Kearse is a solid blocking receiver, but he brings no playmaking ability to the table. The Seattle Times does expect Tyler Lockett to eventually be the Seahawks' No. 2 receiver opposite Doug Baldwin. Lockett is coming off a broken leg.
Aug 1 - 11:00 PM

ESPN Seahawks reporter Sheil Kapadia believes there's "absolutely an opportunity" for WR Paul Richardson to earn more snaps this season.

After Tyler Lockett went down with a season-ending injury in Week 16, Richardson became the biggest beneficiary as the No. 3 receiver. He played 66.9 percent of the offensive snaps the final four games of the season, including the playoffs, and caught 15-of-19 targets for 213 yards and two touchdowns in that span. Richardson will push Jermaine Kearse for snaps in three-wide sets.

Paul Richardson caught 4-of-5 targets for 83 yards in the Seahawks' Divisional Round loss to the Falcons.

Richardson also had a 58-yard reception narrowly, but correctly, overturned on review. Returning from a torn ACL, the 2014 second-rounder had his first- and third-biggest yardage efforts of the season in the playoffs. Richardson was straight making plays in the postseason, offering hope that he could be a "better late than never" player in the final year of his rookie contract. Seattle's crowded receiver corps curbs Richardson's Dynasty appeal, but there's at least light at the end of the tunnel.
