49ers Beat: Garrett Celek to benefit most at TE

Tuesday, August 29, 2017, 8:08pm

CSN Bay Area - [Full Article]

The player who figures to benefit most from Vance McDonald’s trade is veteran Garrett Celek, a sixth-year player who originally signed with the 49ers in 2012 as an undrafted rookie from Michigan State.

Celek has 56 catches for 678 yards and six touchdowns in 55 games. McDonald recorded 64 receptions for 866 yards and seven touchdowns in 48 games with 30 starts.

The 49ers could look to retain undrafted rookie tight end Cole Hikutini on the practice squad, if the team waives him and he goes unclaimed by the other 31 teams. Blake Bell, who enters his third season after being a fourth-round pick in 2015, faces a stiff challenge to make the team.

Related players: Logan Paulsen, George Kittle

Fantasy Impact:

We think Kittle could benefit the most from a fantasy standpoint, but maybe in the short term Celek is more productive. We think Kittle is a great athlete, although currently a little light for the position.

Report: Bears TE Zach MIller breaks foot

CBS Sports - [Full Article]

The news was not kind to Chicago Bears tight end Zach Miller after the game on Sunday afternoon. Jeremy Stoltz of @BearReport tweeted Bears HC John Fox says Miller has a broken foot.

The Bears have not given out an official report, but it sounds more than likely that Miller will not be able to return this season if he broke his foot.

Related players: Logan Paulsen, Ben Baunecker

Fantasy Impact:

Miller finished the game with three catches for 61 yards with one interception. He and quarterback Jay Cutler appeared to click early in the game, and Chicago's offense scuffled in the second half without Miller on the field. Logan Paulsen and
Ben Braunecker are up next on the depth chart.

The Bears busy Sunday continues with the signing of veteran tight end Logan Paulsen, formerly of the Washington Redskins. Paulsen, 29, was signed by the Redskins as an undrafted free agent back in 2010 and has spent his entire career in Washington.

He missed all of the 2015 season with a toe injury and was released yesterday due to a very deep depth chart at tight end in Washington (Jordan Reed, Niles Paul, Vernon Davis). Prior to the 2015 season Paulsen had been a valuable contributor for the Redskins, appearing in all but 5 games from 2010-2014 with 42 starts.

Paulsen is known primarily for his blocking skills, but has proven to be a solid receiver as well with 79 catches, 801 yards, and 6 touchdowns.

Redskins tight end Derek Carrier suffered a season-ending knee injury in Sunday’s win over the Bears, a source confirmed to CSN Mid-Atlantic.

Carrier becomes the third player at that position to go down with a significant injury this season, joining Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen, who were lost in the preseason.

Fantasy Impact:

Carrier, the Redskins’ No. 2 tight end behind Jordan Reed, has a torn ACL and MCL in his right knee. The third-year player was injured on Washington’s second drive on a routine-looking tackle following a short reception over the middle.

Redskins counting on Jordan Reed

Tuesday, August 18, 2015, 9:00pm

ESPN - [Full Article]

The Washington Redskins only know that tight end Jordan Reed won't play Thursday because of a hamstring issue. Beyond that, the only thing they're sure of is they'll need him for the season opener against Miami and that they hope he's available.

Reed has been sidelined since Aug. 11 with a hamstring injury. Coach Jay Gruden said even if they had a regular-season game this week that Reed would not play.

"We've got to get him right," Gruden said. "I've got to make sure he's 100 percent for Miami."

Gruden said he's hoping Reed can play in the third preseason game against Baltimore, but there's no guarantee he'll be ready by then. Even without injuries to tight ends Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen, the Redskins needed Reed to be healthy. Now with those two out, Reed's return becomes even bigger.

Fantasy Impact:

The story went on to say the Redskins want Reed to be a big part of their third-down package if nothing else. The problem is that Reed's durability has always been an issue. He's missed 12 games in his first two seasons and has missed time each of the past two training camps. When he plays he's put up fantasy numbers but potential owners will need a backup plan because even as it stands now, it's not certain he's ready for the season.

The Washington Redskins on Sunday began to address the depth at their tight end position that has been depleted by injuries, announcing the signing of rookie Ernst Brun.

In corresponding moves, the team placed tight ends Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen on Injured-Reserve, and also waived/injured running back Silas Redd Jr.

Brun, who tried out with the team Sunday and then signed the same day, is an Iowa State product. From 2011-13, the 6-foot-3, 251-pound Brun caught 32 passes for 377 yards and six receiving touchdowns for the Cyclones.

Jordan Reed hopes to return Thursday vs. Detroit

Saturday, August 15, 2015, 6:26pm

Washington Post - [Full Article]

Tight end Jordan Reed (strained hamstring) remained sidelined as the Washington Redskins resumed practice Saturday afternoon, but said he will try to play in next Thursday’s preseason game against Detroit.

“I might be able to play against Detroit,” he said. “I feel pretty good.”

With Niles Paul out for the year because of a fractured and dislocated left ankle suffered in the preseason opener at Cleveland, and Logan Paulsen due to have season-ending surgery on his right big toe on Monday, Reed is the only experienced tight end on the roster.

Fantasy Impact:

The others are Chase Dixon and Je’Ron Hamm, who spent a portion of last season on Washington’s practice squad, and Devin Mehina, an undrafted rookie out of BYU. The team could make some moves to bring in more help. As stated in a previous news item, whomever ends up second on the depth chart is just an injury away from getting significant time.

Skins TE Logan Paulsen, RB Silas Redd out for season

Saturday, August 15, 2015, 4:35pm

USA Today - [Full Article]

Washington Redskins tight end Logan Paulsen needs surgery for a turf toe injury and will miss the entire season.

Coach Jay Gruden says after practice at training camp Saturday that Paulsen will have the operation on Monday.

Paulsen is the second Redskins tight end out for the season. Niles Paul broke his ankle in Thursday's preseason opener against Cleveland.

Gruden says Washington will work out a couple of possible additions at tight end.

Gruden also says running back Silas Redd will miss the season with torn knee ligaments. Redd got hurt against Cleveland.

Fantasy Impact:

The value of Jordan Reed continues to grow. We'll keep you updated on whom the team signs as they would just be an injury away from starting if something happens to Reed, who has also struggled to stay healthy. The injury to Redd at the RB position may be good news for Chris Thompson who seemed like he was on the roster bubble. Thompson should now be behind Alfred Morris and Matt Jones on the RB depth chart.

The Redskins need better blocking from their TEs.

This group was too inconsistent for the coaches when it came to blocking and that includes Logan Paulsen, too. It's not just on the offensive line to pass protect or open holes in the run game. They want, and need the tight ends to produce as blockers or other areas won't work.

Bill Callahan likes to involve the tight ends more than most in pass protection, though it does not sound like it will be a whole lot different than it was before he arrived. Jordan Reed blocked better as a rookie than he did last season and that can't happen again. Niles Paul's added weight will help in this area; he's worked on improving his angles and hand placement but sometimes was just outweighed. He's still slightly undersized but is a whole lot more suited to the position now than in the past.

Fantasy Impact:

The Skins loved Reed's offensive ability leading up to his rookie year when he eventually came out of no where to most. But Reed's problem is staying on the field. Last season, Reed's primary work came on short routes the story said. The article went on to say Reed's average air yards on passes thrown to him as a rookie was 6.61 while last season it was 4.40, according to ESPN Stats & Information. The result: Reed averaged 11.03 yards per catch as a rookie and 9.30 this past season. Reed is ranked just 24th on our TE list, but is capable of low-end TE1 numbers when healthy.

Washington Beat: TE Niles Paul 'noticeably bigger'

Thursday, June 4, 2015, 1:00pm

Washington Post - [Full Article]

Redskins TE Jordan Reed, who had a procedure done on his injured knee, also watched. He didn’t walk with a noticeable limp, and didn’t wear a brace on the knee. HC Jay Gruden said he’s not concerned about the stability of the tight end position, praising Niles Paul and Logan Paulsen. (Gruden said Paul has bulked up some more in an attempt to help himself become more effective as a blocker. He’s definitely noticeably bigger).

Fantasy Impact:

Paul could surprise if Reed ends up on the shelf with his knee issues. Paul isn't a shoo-in to produce, but he has had his moments with Reed sidelined.

Friday, November 14, 2014, 6:06pm

Redskins TE Logan Paulsen (foot, hamstring, questionable) took full practice reps on Friday after being limited earlier in the week and is questionable for Week 11.

Thursday, November 13, 2014, 6:29pm

Redskins TE Logan Paulsen (foot, hamstring) took limited practice reps again Thursday.

Wednesday, November 12, 2014, 5:52pm

Redskins TE Logan Paulsen (foot, hamstring) took limited practice reps Wednesday.

CSN Washington - [Full Article]

Redskins beat writers Tarik El-Bashir and Rich Tandler answered questions about the Redskins TEs, specifically how Niles Paul is progressing through protocol after suffering a concussion.

We should get a status update Tuesday from Coach Jay Gruden and possibly Niles Paul himself. But if you read between the lines, roster moves provided us with a hint. The Redskins had two vacant roster spots. They signed a cornerback and a safety. If there was serious doubt about Paul, they probably would have signed a tight end. Because if Jordan Reed (hamstring) and Paul are both sidelined against the Seahawks, that would leave them with Logan Paulsen as their only healthy tight end.

Fantasy Impact:

Reed was back at practice Tuesday and wearing pads while Paul was not, CSN Washington reported in another item. Paul took a nasty hit against the Giants, and it's hard to imagine he would be back on the field as quick as this week. Looks like Reed may be porgressing enough to play Week 5.

Redskins TE Niles Paul knocked out of game with apparent concussion

Friday, September 26, 2014, 1:10am

NBC Sports - [Full Article]

Late in the first half of Thursday night’s game, Washington tight end Niles Paul caught a pass and then was crunched between a pair of Giants defenders. A helmet-to-helmet hit from safety Will Demps drew a flag — and also knocked Paul out of the game.

He laid on the ground for several minutes before being walked slowly to the locker room.

Fantasy Impact:

Paul was on his way to a nice game, posting 3-60 on four targets before the hit. He'll have to navigate his way through the NFL's concussion protocol, but the benefit of playing in the Thursday night game is that he'll have a few extra days to do so. Jordan Reed is considered questionable for Week 5, so Logan Paulsen is currently holding down the fort at the tight end position.
