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)

Redskins | Paul Richardson could be deep threat (Mon Jul 8, 10:05 PM) - Washington Redskins WR Paul Richardson (knee, shoulder) could be a deep threat for the team if he is able to stay healthy this season. He did not participate in team drills during offseason workouts.

Our View: This always seems to be the case with Richardson. He's dealt with the injury bug dating all the way back to his college days at the University of Colorado. Richardson has speed to burn and tracks passes with ease over his shoulder. Talent has never been an issue, but seemingly constant knee problems have plagued his football career. He only made it through seven games in 2018, his first season with Washington.
