Chris Cooley fine with limited role with Redskins, fantasy value remains low

Brad Mills-US PRESSWIRE

Washington Redskins tight end Chris Cooley says he's fine with his limited role since returning to the Washington Redskins. We break down the fantasy implications.

Tight end Chris Cooley isn't bothered by his limited role in the offense since returning to the Washington Redskins. Cooley said Tuesday (via The Washington Post) that he hopes his role continues to develop and that, for now, he was happy to do whatever he could.

Cooley played just 10 snaps in last weekend's loss to the Carolina Panthers and has not caught a pass in either game since returning to the Redskins after the season-ending injury to starter Fred Davis. Logan Paulsen has had nine catches for 102 yards in the last two weeks for Washington, which has a bye in Week 10.

Fantasy Impact: Cooley's role could grow but Paulsen has been very impressive since the injury to Davis. Obviously neither player has any value in Week 10, although Paulsen could be a name for fantasy owners to consider if they are looking for a different option at tight end.

Paulsen is a rising No. 2 fantasy tight end, while Cooley is still not worth owning.
