Week 14: at Green Bay Packers
FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Redskins passing offense continues to be a work in progress as rookie Dwayne Haskins is still learning as he had limited experience in college with just one season as the starter at Ohio State. Haskins has completed just 54% of his passes and has thrown six interceptions compared to just two touchdowns in his six games as a starting quarterback, and has been sacked 22 times in just six games. The reality is that Haskins has been put in a tough spot, as the team has limited options at wide receiver with fellow rookie Terry McLaurin the only receiver to have more than 300 yards or 30 catches this season as Paul Richardson, Kelvin Harmon, and Trey Quinn have all been non-existent this season. If there is good news on the horizon, it is that Chris Thompson was able to return last week which should provide a check-down option that neither Adrian Peterson nor Derrius Guice possess as both are limited as receivers. The Packers are a team that is designed to stop the pass and so far this season, yet have not been a shut-down defense. While on the surface they have allowed the 8th-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks, they have allowed 271 yards passing per game which is the 9th most in the NFL this season as they are propped up by allowing just 1.3 passing touchdowns per game. This is a unit that is still very young at the corner position as they are led by Jaire Alexander who continues to develop into one of the better cornerbacks in football. Opposite of Alexander, Kevin King has had his ups and downs this year and has struggled with consistency. However, the real problem for the Packers has been stopping tight ends. Over their last six games, the Packers have allowed an average of 103 yards per game to the position which is 40 yards more than the next closest team. Blake Martinez and Ibraheim Campbell have both struggled mightily in stopping the position and while the competition that they have faced has been some of the better tight ends in football, they were also exposed by Kaden Smith for 70 yards last week.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 12 vs DET (2 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Paul Richardson had one reception on two targets. He didn't make an impact in this game as the offense struggled to stay on the field. He also aggravated a hamstring injury in the game.
2019 Week 9 vs BUF (5 / 4 / 42 / 0 rec)
Paul Richardson tied for a team high, four receptions. He was able to make a few plays after the catch to showcase his playmaking ability. Although he is more of a deep threat, Washington has been using him more on shorter pass plays. Paul was the only receiver to have an endzone target as well. He couldn't haul it in as this would have made for a bigger stat line.
2019 Week 8 vs MIN (4 / 3 / 34 / 0 rec)
Paul Richardson was more involved in this game than he has been in the last few weeks. He caught the first pass of the game to gain a first down but was only targeted three more times. He tallied three catches on four targets. The entire passing game was downgraded once Case went down. Paul was able to easily get open on his receptions, but the offense was shut down in the second half.
2019 Week 7 vs SF (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Paul Richardson did not record a catch for the second consecutive game. He recorded one target versus San Francisco.
2019 Week 6 vs MIA (4 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec, 1 / 0 / 0 rush)
Paul Richardson was targeted one time but did not record a catch. Most of the secondary options in the passing game will suffer even more now that the team wants to run more often.
2019 Week 5 vs NE (2 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
Paul Richardson was invisible in this game as he had two receptions for fourteen yards. With the offense often having short possessions, he was held in check. He had almost no opportunity to establish a rhythm as a possession receiver.
2019 Week 4 vs NYG (5 / 3 / 14 / 0 rec)
Paul Richardson tallied three catches for less than twenty yards in this game. Paul's one chance at a big play was wiped out as it was intercepted. Nothing was working in the passing game and things got even worse once the offense was turned over to a rookie. With Terry being out, Paul's matchup turned bad as he was lined up with Janoris Jenkins all game.
2019 Week 3 vs CHI (9 / 8 / 83 / 1 rec)
Paul Richardson caught eight of nine targets in this game. He led the team in targets and receptions after starting the season quiet. Many of his receptions were in short to intermediate areas as Washington prioritized quick throws to offset the Bears pass rush. The pass heavy game script due to the large deficit allowed Paul to get more involved but he may not be this active weekly.
2019 Week 2 vs DAL (3 / 3 / 16 / 1 rec)
Paul Richardson only had three receptions on the day but managed to score one of Washington's three touchdowns. It was an impressive score as he took a hook route reception and turned up-field to gain an additional ten yards. Paul hasn't been a big part of this offense so far early in the season.
2019 Week 1 vs PHI (7 / 4 / 36 / 0 rec)
Paul Richardson was mostly ineffective against the Eagles. He had four catches on seven targets but gained only thirty-six yards. He helped convert a couple of first down in the first half, but his ability downfield was not utilized. Paul is a big play threat, but the coaching staff didn't seem to dial up his number today. It will be interesting going forward because he is the most experienced receiver among the starters.
