Paul Richardson caught 5-of-8 targets for 56 yards in the Seahawks' Week 11 loss to the Falcons.
It was a decent bounce-back game for Richardson after he was held to 1-43 and 3-41 lines the past two games after a couple monster efforts prior to those. He's so hit or miss as the third option in the passing attack behind Doug Baldwin and Jimmy Graham. Richardson is a WR3/4 next week at the 49ers. Nov 21 - 12:12 AM

Paul Richardson caught 1-of-2 targets for 43 yards in the Seahawks' Week 10 win over the Cardinals.

Gutting out a groin injury, Richardson was on a snap count, playing only 33-of-63 snaps (per Pro Football Focus). It was an extremely disappointing night for WR3 desperados, but Richardson now has 11 days to get healthy for Seattle's Week 11 Monday night date with the Falcons.
Nov 10 - 12:21 AM

Paul Richardson (groin) is active for Week 10 against the Cardinals.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported earlier Thursday that Richardson could be "limited some." He should be treated as a volatile WR3 for fantasy purposes. Inactive for the Seahawks are RB Eddie Lacy, S Earl Thomas, LB Josh Forrest, OG Jordan Roos, OG Luke Joeckel, DE Marcus Smith and DE Quinton Jefferson.
Nov 9 - 7:03 PM

ESPN's Adam Schefter confirms Paul Richardson (questionable, groin) is expected to play Week 10 against the Cardinals, but could be "limited some."

It looks like Richardson will be out there on Thursday night but may not see his normal workload. If that's the case, it could open up looks for Tyler Lockett. Richardson was absent from all three practices this week after injuring his groin in Sunday's loss to Washington.
Nov 9 - 2:21 PM

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll expects Paul Richardson (groin, questionable) to play Thursday night.

Richardson did not practice all week, but the coach suggests that was a precautionary move. "He just felt some tightness, so we just took care of him during the week," Carroll said. "He should be all right, should be OK." Richardson has been up and down so far this season, but he will be in a good spot against the Cardinals if he suits up.
Nov 9 - 11:28 AM

Paul Richardson (groin) is questionable for Week 10 against the Cardinals.

Richardson didn't practice all week, putting his status in doubt. It's a downgrade for Russell Wilson and the pass offense. Tyler Locket and Amara Darboh will see more snaps if Richardson sits.

RotoGrinders.com Daily Slant: Richardson may end up seeing more of Tramon Williams coverage than Patrick Peterson while Lockett may not be so lucky. Peterson has posted the best cover snaps per reception rate in the league (31.6), the third-best yards per cover snap (0.5), and an incredible 33% catch rate. Although Williams has allowed more yards per cover snap (1.16), he's posted a 47% catch rate. Doug Baldwin has the best matchup of the group against PFF's 83rd cover corner, Tyrann Mathieu, who's allowed the eighth-most yards per cover snap when lined up inside (1.36) and the seventh-most receptions (23). Baldwin, who’s 12th in yards per route run (1.92), projects as our WR2 this week.
Nov 8 - 4:51 PM

Paul Richardson (groin) was held out of Tuesday's practice.

Richardson wasn't listed on Monday's injury report, so it's a new ailment. It's an ominous development with the Seahawks playing on Thursday night. The Seahawks play all sorts of injury report games, so there's still a good chance Richardson returns to "full" on Wednesday. Fantasy owners need to sit tight.
Nov 7 - 7:30 PM

Paul Richardson hauled in 3-of-3 targets for 41 yards in the Seahawks' Week 9 loss to the Texans.

This is a big decline after last week's explosion, but Richardson continued to be efficient, catching all three of his targets. QB Russell Wilson completed only 53 percent of his passes and wasn't at his best which limited Richardson's upside. He is a boom/bust fantasy option going forward.
Nov 5 - 9:35 PM

Paul Richardson hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 105 yards and two touchdowns in the Seahawks' Week 8 win over the Texans.

Richardson only had two targets in the first half, but he made them both count. With Russell Wilson doing Russell Wilson things in the backfield, Richardson broke towards the end zone and came up with a great pass for a 20-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He repeated the feat from seven yards out a couple drives later for his fifth touchdown of the season and third in the last two games, and he had a third touchdown called back by a penalty in the fourth. Despite the scores, Richardson's biggest play was a spectacular 48-yard, leaping grab to help set up the game-winning touchdown. Richardson is always going to have valleys with Tyler Lockett also seeing targets, but he is scoring regularly enough this season for consideration in all leagues.
Oct 29 - 7:47 PM

Paul Richardson corralled both of his targets for 61 yards and a touchdown Sunday in the Seahawks’ Week 7 win over the Giants.

Richardson saved his best for last by pulling in a 38-yard touchdown on a perfectly executed flea flicker by Russell Wilson. That touchdown put the game out of reach as the Seahawks buried New York with a 14-point fourth quarter. Richardson continues to be a big play threat for the Seahawks but his volatility makes him a difficult player to trust on a week-to-week basis. He’s now scored in three of his last five games and will aim to make it four out of six next week at home against the Texans.
Oct 22 - 9:25 PM

Paul Richardson caught 3-of-5 targets for 35 yards in the Seahawks' Week 5 win over the Rams.

It was a quiet day for the Seahawks' passing attack. Richardson will be an inadvisable WR4 for the Seahawks' trip to the Meadowlands (aka "MetLife Stadium") following the Week 6 bye.
Oct 8 - 8:14 PM

Paul Richardson caught three passes for 65 yards in Week 4 against the Colts.

Richardson had two fewer yards than Tyler Lockett, but was targeted just three times. His highlight was a 37-yard catch before halftime that set up a field goal Seattle couldn't convert. Richardson will remain a risk/reward WR4 for Week 5.
Oct 2 - 12:39 AM

Paul Richardson caught 2-of-7 targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 3 loss to the Titans.

Richardson and Russell Wilson came close to making a few long gains, but couldn't connect. The 2014 second-rounder has scored in back-to-back games, but has a modest 108 yards on the season. He's a risk/reward WR4 with a good chance of hitting his upside in Week 4 against the Colts, especially if Doug Baldwin (groin) can't go.
Sep 24 - 8:11 PM

Paul Richardson (finger) was removed from the Week 3 injury report.

Richardson played with a dislocated finger last week, but there was never doubt over his status. He'll continue to start opposite Doug Baldwin in two-wide sets.
Sep 22 - 5:28 PM

Paul Richardson (finger) is practicing Wednesday.

Richardson played through a dislocated finger Sunday, but his Week 3 status isn't in doubt. He should play his normal snaps against the Titans.
