| TE Niles Paul out for the season, ankle injury|
Redskins thin at tight end position

FFToday's Take: With Jordan Reed sidelined with yet another hamstring injury and Logan Paulsen battling a foot issue, the Redskins are currently thin at the tight end position. Reed is going to have an enormous opportunity now that Paul is lost for the season but his injury risk is through the roof.

Gruden: Paul is a more complete tight end

|Washington HC Jay Gruden says TE Niles Paul is a more complete tight end than Jordan Reed, and that's why he is now the starting TE. (Mike Jones on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: Coaches can sometimes play games with their depth chart, but Paul's commitment to improve each offseason (and ability to stay healthy) has apparently moved him ahead of the toolsy Reed, who has been unable to stay on the field very long in his brief NFL career. As a result, Paul has 40-50 catch upside for a player that is going undrafted at the moment. Dynasty owners should also take note and act accordingly.

Redskins feel insured with Niles Paul
By: Mike Krueger | Sat Jul 11, 3:00 pm
|Ongoing issues forced him (Jordan Reed) to have a procedure on his left knee this spring, and because of it, he spent the entire offseason rehabilitating rather than practicing in an offense that has undergone some tweaks. The Redskins believe that Reed will be ready to go by the start of training camp. However, itís hard to know if or how long coaches will be able to count on Reed. (Washington Post)|
FFToday's Take: The Redskins gave re-signed Niles Paul to three-year, $6 million deal this offseason in large part due to Reed's inability to stay healthy. Reed has the athletic ability to be a difference maker at the position but his 12 games missed over the last two years is concerning for fantasy owners. Reed is a TE2 given his risk but capable of producing like a TE1 when healthy.
