Logan Paulsen Fantasy Football 2013 Profile: TE Has Great Upside
Name: Logan Paulsen
Team: Washington Redskins
Position: Tight End
Years Pro: 3
Draft stock: (Stagnant) Despite Fred Davis missing a bulk of time in 2012 due to injuries, Paulsen still wasn’t able to make noise on the fantasy football front. Instead, Paulsen finished his third season as a reliable and stout run-blocking tight end, who didn’t exactly have a nose for the endzone. However, the Redskins’ bandwagon is larger than ever, so one brave soul could definitely draft Paulsen.
2012 fantasy impact: In his first two years with Washington, Paulsen wasn’t much of a factor, but the big target suddenly thrived in a blocking-heavy role. Clearing the way for 1,000-yard rusher Alfred Morris, Paulsen was able to find a home in the Redskins’ starting lineup as one of their best blockers.
Best-case scenario: Davis is on the shelf for a bulk of the season once again, but unlike 2012, the 6-foot-5 Paulsen excels in the meantime and becomes Robert Griffin III‘s go-to tight end.
Worst-case scenario: Incredible blocking from Davis makes Paulsen all but obsolete as the starting Redskins’ tight end steals all of Paulsen’s thunder.
Where you should draft him: Paulsen isn’t worthy of a draft pick, but if you think Davis is on the decline then go ahead and pull the trigger on Paulsen in the 15th round.
