Week 11: vs New York Jets - $5000
FBG says: Neutral matchup. The Washington Redskins have officially committed to rookie Dwayne Haskins as their starting quarterback for the remainder of the 2019 campaign. This announcement came during the team's bye week, following a brutal 1-8 start to the season. In limited action this year, Haskins has been significantly worse under center than either Case Keenum or Colt McCoy, but this is a decision made with one eye on the future. In the short-term, Washington's already horrific passing attack is poised to struggle with Haskins at the helm. Through his first 44 pass attempts of his career, Haskins has 0 touchdowns, 4 interceptions, and has posted a measly 2.4 adjusted yards per attempt. Terry McLaurin remains the team's number-one target moving forward, as his dominance in Washington's passing attack cannot be understated. McLaurin was also a collegiate teammate of Haskins last season at Ohio State, whom Haskins specifically requested the Redskins draft alongside him. Paul Richardson is the team's next-best receiving option, but the volume and quality of targets available aside from McLaurin are uninspiring. Washington's offensive line ranks amongst the league's worst, which will not bode well for a young and developing quarterback this weekend in a typically run-heavy offensive attack. The New York Jets' pass defense faces a remarkably-high number of pass attempts, in large part thanks to the team's impressive run defense, and their efficiency numbers against the pass are respectable overall. The Jets' pass-rush is an average unit overall, headlined by an emerging Jordan Jenkins with five sacks on the edge. At linebacker, C.J. Mosely is going to miss week 11's game due to a groin injury. In his place, James Burgess has started at linebacker. Burgess is a horrific pass defender, and teams have exploited this over the middle in recent weeks with Mike Gesicki and Rhett Ellison, two underwhelming fantasy producers, to post 15.5 and 7.2 PPR points, respectively. The Jets' secondary has been a strength of this team, with Marcus Maye, Jamal Adams, and Brian Poole leading an impressive unit, but recent injuries have left the unit exposed elsewhere. Trumaine Johnson made his way to the IR two weeks ago, and Darryl Roberts' status is in question this weekend due to a calf injury. In his place, expect either Arthur Maulet or Blessuan Austin, both of whom are inexperienced and uninspiring reserves, to enter the starting lineup at cornerback. Last weekend, Daniel Jones carved up the Jets for 300 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 0 interceptions in a shockingly-strong performance by the rookie. This weekend, another rookie, Dwayne Haskins, will need to exploit these few relative weaknesses in the Jets' defense if he has any hopes of success with the odds stacked against him here in week 11.

Recent Game Summaries
2019 Week 9 vs BUF (5 / 4 / 42 / 0 rec - 6.2 points, $4800)
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 - 4.9 points, $4600)
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 - 0 points, $4600)
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 - 0 points, $4700)
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 - 2.4 points, $4700)
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 - 2.9 points, $4700)
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 - 18.3 points, $4700)
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 - 9.1 points, $4700)
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 - 5.6 points, $4900)
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.
