TE Logan Paulsen - Atlanta Falcons
|6-4, 264||Born: 2-26-1987||College: UCLA||Drafted: ---|
2018 Week 4 vs CIN (1 / 1 / 17 / 1 rec)
Atlanta motioned Coleman to the right side and baited Cincinnati to slide to the left with Junes and Sanu to the left side. This opened the seam for Paulsen for an easy score to tie the game.
2018 Week 11 vs DAL (2 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
He earned a sidearm throw for a six-yard gain off a bootleg pass to begin the second half. Paulsen reached the Atlanta 11 with a stiff-arm on the cornerback for yards after the catch in the red zone midway through the fourth quarter.
2014 Week 4 vs NYG (3 / 3 / 28 / 0 rec)
Paulsen saw a season-high percentage of snaps against the Giants as starter Niles Paul played less than half the game prior to a hit that took him out of the game in the second quarter. Paulsen contributed a fumble, killing a scoring drive, in the late second quarter as Washington began its string of turnovers on offense.
2014 Week 13 vs IND (1 / 1 / 16 / 1 rec)
Logan Paulsen was the beneficiary of an amazing play made by his QB to escape multiple tacklers and hit him for a wide open short TD reception. Paulsen was not targeted again in the game.
2013 Week 3 vs DET (6 / 4 / 51 / 0 rec)
The Redskins involved Paulsen heavily in their matchup against the Lions, and Paulsen responded with his biggest game of the season. The UCLA product tied fellow tight end Jordan Reed with six targets, mostly working in the flat and across the middle of the field. Paulsen did not showcase much of a motor after the catch, but he did snag several passes for double digit yardage to help the Redskins move the chains, looking confident in a pass-catching role. Paulsen is a load to bring down in the open field, thus his size alone should guarantee at least nominal gains after the catch. His presence in the passing game does muddy the waters for fantasy players in deep leagues seeking help at tight end, since Jordan Reed looked the part of the player to add after the Redskins played the Packers in Week Two.
2013 Week 4 vs OAK (2 / 2 / 46 / 0 rec)
Paulsen caught all two of his targets to lead Redskins tight ends in receiving yards. He had a particularly impressive thirty-three yard catch-and-run across the O.Co Coliseum infield, but the Raiders forced a fumble on Paulsen and recovered the football. Paulsen appeared to be the beneficiary of the Redskins' revolving door at tight end in Oakland and, over the past several weeks, seems to be carving out a greater role at the position than just that of extra in-line blocker.
2013 Week 10 vs MIN (3 / 2 / 3 / 1 rec)
Paulsen scored a touchdown from one yard out and got three total targets against Minnesota. He remains Washington's primary in-line tight end.
2013 Week 11 vs PHI (3 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Paulsen soaked up targets at the tight end position with Jordan Reed out of the game, but did not record a catch.
2013 Week 12 vs SF (2 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
The de facto receiving tight end with Jordan Reed concussed and Fred Davis gone rogue, Paulsen had zero catches on two targets.
2013 Week 13 vs NYG (4 / 3 / 41 / 1 rec)
The only tight end on the Redskins roster not concussed or neglectful of team responsibilities, Paulsen had his biggest game of the season. He scored his second touchdown of the season on a skinny post route off a pass that Robert Griffin III flicked into tight coverage. Paulsen caught the pass and bounced off a couple of Giants defensive backs for the score. Much more of a blocking tight end - though his hands are not made of stone - Paulsen filled in nicely as a short option for Robert Griffin III as the Redskins sought to run a lot of no-huddle offense and move the ball down the field quickly. He stands to see even more of the field, one would assume, after Fred Davis blew what was his best opportunity of the 2013-14 season.
2013 Week 14 vs KC (5 / 3 / 44 / 1 rec)
Paulsen made a terrific, one-handed stab off a seven-yard pass from Robert Griffin III for the Redskins' only touchdown in Week Fourteen. Overthrown in the back of the end zone, Paulsen grabbed the back end of the football with one hand and controlled the catch for the score. The touchdown was his second in as many games filling in for the injured Jordan Reed. Paulsen is no one's idea of the speedy, basketball-playing tight end prototype that dominates the NFL today, but on a Redskins team desperate for pass catchers, he has at least been steady this season.
2013 Week 17 vs NYG (8 / 4 / 32 / 0 rec)
An unremarkable though steady fixture in the Washington "passing game," Paulsen finished the season with an eight target game, his most of any game this season. Certainly the most versatile tight end on the Redskins' roster, Paulsen, as he has in games past, caught the ball where it was thrown but offered little in terms of yards after the catch. Speed is simply not a weapon in Paulsen's arsenal, though his oversized hands make for good targets. It stands to reason that despite said versatility, he will likely slide back into the role of in-line tight end in 2014, with either the return of Jordan Reed or the acquisition of a more lithe, pass-catching tight end by the Redskins.
2012 Week 1 vs NO (1 / 1 / 22 / 0 rec)
The burly second tight end for the Redskins, primarily used for blocking purposes, caught one pass late in the fourth quarter. The six-foot-five, two-hundred and sixty-four pound Paulsen caught the pass from Robert Griffin III on a seam route and dragged multiple Saints defensive backs along the way for a twenty-two yard gain.
2012 Week 7 vs NYG (6 / 4 / 76 / 0 rec)
Logan Paulsen didn't get many targets in this offense but he made them count and took advantage of a NYG defense that failed to pay him enough attention at times. Paulsen was the beneficiary of play action as QB Griffin frequently looked his way after the fake sucked up the defense. Paulsen did a good job of unravelling and getting open when Griffin was scrambling outside the pocket and gave Griffin good windows to throw the football into. Paulsen got some good grabs on seam, sideline and basic patterns where he could take advantage of the zone defense. He helped QB Griffin convert a 4th and 10 on the final drive, getting open against zone defense as Griffin extended the play. His hands were also superb and caught the ball cleanly. Paulsen has good size and bulk to challenge defenders over the middle but not quite athletic enough to be a deep threat with speed. Paulsen has a good opportunity to take over as the #1 TE with Fred Davis out, he will have to outperform veteran Cooley however. A few more solid performances like he did on Sunday and he could win the role. He showed some flashes but also got a lot of his catches when the defense "turned him loose" almost and relied on QB Griffin to make the play while scrambling. This performance was not enough to cement him in the line up but it's a good start.
2012 Week 8 vs PIT (6 / 4 / 43 / 0 rec)
As he did last week after Fred Davis' injury, Paulsen became the primary target from the tight end position. In the first quarter, the team drew up a very creative play that got Paulsen open. A play action fake and bootleg to the right moved the defense and Robert Griffin threw it back to the left for a 31-yard gain for Paulsen. They tried a near-mirror image of the play later in the game, but Griffin overthrew Paulsen a little further down the field. Paulsen did commit two false start penalties in the game, something that - if it continues - won't exactly endear himself to his coaches.
2012 Week 9 vs CAR (8 / 5 / 59 / 0 rec)
Tight end Logan Paulsen is looking more and more the part as the weeks go on and certainly poses more of a threat than his skill set would indicate. Paulsen's 19-yard reception late in the game on a post route was particularly impressive, as he snatched the football out of the air despite good coverage. Therein lies the downside - he is not capable of getting separation consistently - but in the short to intermediate range he provided a trustworthy target for his quarterback.
2012 Week 11 vs PHI (1 / 1 / 17 / 1 rec)
Paulsen recorded one catch on one target for seventeen yards. The undersized Eagles' defenders that attempted to tackle the six-foot-five, two-hundred-and-sixty pound tight end after Paulsen's catch were unsuccessful, as Paulsen dragged them along with him until he plunged into the end zone. The touchdown catch put Washington up by twenty-five points.
2012 Week 12 vs DAL (3 / 2 / 11 / 0 rec)
Paulsen registered two catches for eleven yards on three targets, spending a fair amount of the day pass-blocking.
2012 Week 13 vs NYG (3 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)
Paulsen caught one pass for ten yards, an early reception on third-and-long in the first quarter that he managed to bring in for a first down. Targeted three times, he spent most of the evening in-line as a blocker and in the backfield for pass protection.
2012 Week 14 vs BAL (1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Paulsen caught one eight-yard pass in the second quarter. The Redskins continue to use him primarily as an in-line blocker.
2012 Week 15 vs CLE (5 / 4 / 47 / 0 rec)
Paulsen continues to be a reliable short-yardage option in the passing game for the Redskins. The third-year man from UCLA caught four passes for forty-seven yards, his highest receiving yardage total since Week Ten against the Panthers. Primarily running curls and out routes to help Washington move the chains through the air, Paulsen impresses primarily through his ability to generate yards after the catch. Never one to be confused with Darren Sproles - or even Tony Gonzalez - Paulsen generates extra yardage much like a running back, by lowering his shoulders and slamming into defenders, churning his legs forward. Several of his forty-seven yards receiving came via this cleats-in-the-ground, hard-nosed fashion.
2012 Week 17 vs DAL (1 / 1 / 8 / 0 rec)
Paulsen caught one pass from Robert Griffin III on an out route for eight yards. Paulsen's reception, which he controlled essentially with his fingertips, was nearly wrestled from his hands by Cowboys cornerback Sterling Moore. Paulsen completed the catch and converted a critical third down for the Redskin on third-and-seven in the second quarter. His catch extended a drive that ended in a seventeen-yard touchdown run by Alfred Morris. Paulsen was tremendous in run-blocking for the Redskins, several times sealing the edge against the Dallas front seven for Griffin and Morris.
2012 Week 18 vs SEA (4 / 2 / 15 / 1 rec)
Paulsen caught two passes for fifteen yards, including a four-yard touchdown pass in the first quarter. Towards the end of the first quarter, Paulsen ran a stick route into the end zone after lining up to block. The burly tight end got open enough to catch a four-yard pass from Robert Griffin III to put the Redskins up by fourteen points late in the first quarter. Paulsen's touchdown was his second of the season.
2011 Week 10 vs MIA (1 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Grossman hit him on play action across the middle to gain a 1st down but then no more targets the rest of the game.
2011 Week 12 vs SEA (2 / 2 / 14 / 0 rec)
Two catches on the day, one of which was a nice sliding catch that earned him a first down.
2011 Week 13 vs NYJ (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Paulsen was not much of a factor against the Jets, and was only targeted once. However it is worth noting that if Davis is suspended for the rest of the season, that Paulsen is next in the pecking order. However, Paulsen was never a great pass-catcher at UCLA and is more blocker than receiver. With Trent Williams also reported to be suspended, the Redskins will probably keep him in to block as happened on Sunday against the Jets.
2011 Week 15 vs NYG (1 / 1 / 9 / 0 rec)
The TE position was not a big target of the offense with Cooley OUT and Fred Davis suspended. Paulsen did what he could but this another weak link on this offense right now.
2011 Week 16 vs MIN (2 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Paulsen was hardly used as a receiver and is mainly a blocking tight end. Not much fantasy value as of now for the youngster.
2011 Week 17 vs PHI (5 / 2 / 29 / 0 rec)
Logan Paulsen is the third string tight end on the depth chart and likely only saw the field on Sunday due to injuries to his TE teammates ahead of him. Paulsen was not put in great positions to make plays and caught mostly short passes and checkdowns for minimal gains in a game that the Redskins were not trying too hard to win. Whether Paulsen could be potentially good or bad ultimately could not be decided based on the tape in this game.
2010 Week 14 vs TB (1 / 1 / 1 / 1 rec)
Who??? That's what the Bucs said I'm sure when he caught a 1 yard TD pass in the left side of the end zone as he was wide open for the play. Certainly not something you can bank on very often. It was his only catch of the day.
