Summary

When Washington signed Paul Richardson to a 5-year, $40 million deal with $20 million guaranteed, they expected a lot more than 20 receptions for 262 yards and two touchdowns. Richardson was never healthy and tried, ineffectively, to play through the pain. He dealt with knee and shoulder injuries all season, and eventually went on Injured Reserve to have surgery on his AC joint. The 6-foot-0, 175-pound speedster is capable of blowing the top off a defense when healthy and will be counted on to keep opposing defenses honest this year. If he has a healthy and robust preseason, Richardson is an enticing late-round fantasy pick given his role as a full-time starter is secure. He won't see more than 80-100 targets over a full season given his skill set, but that would be enough to push for No. 3 fantasy value in most leagues. (May 2)
