Jordan Reed Fantasy Football News 2017

For the 1st time since Week 2, Redskins TE Jordan Reed is not listed on the injury report. He's off to a slow start -- 14 catches for 105 scoreless yards -- but has been bothered by rib and sternum injuries. Evidently somewhere close to 100% now, he's a TE1 with upside for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Washington TE Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) is active for tonight's game against the Chiefs. He put in limited workouts all week and should be fine if you waited this long for him.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Chiefs after a limited week of practice. Reed told reporters on Saturday afternoon that he plans to play. We'll look for another update on his status tomorrow morning. As of now, though, you need to have TE Vernon Davis rostered as a backup option if you hope to use Reed.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (shoulder) remained limited on Friday. We’ll see what he’s able to do on Saturday and how Washington lists him on the injury report. With Reed playing vs. the Chiefs on Monday night, you might need to own TE Vernon Davis if you’re hoping to start him.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) was limited in Thursday's practice. He was limited last Thursday and Friday before sitting out Sunday night's game, so this doesn't tell us much. We'll see if Reed can progress to full participation on Friday. For now, consider him 50/50 for Monday night's game against the Chiefs.

7:09pm EDT 9/24/17

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) is inactive for tonight’s game against the Raiders. That puts TE Vernon Davis on the spot-start radar. He posted lines of 2-50-1, 6-79, 5-47 and 1-13 in the 4 games Reed missed last year.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Washington TE Jordan Reed will be a "game-time call ... but is more unlikely to play" Sunday night against the Raiders. Schefter calls it a rib injury, though various reports have also said shoulder and sternum this week. Bottom line: Reed looks very iffy. If you don't have a better option than waiting on him, then you need to at least grab Vernon Davis as insurance.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) told reporters on Friday that he’ll be a game-time decision for Week 3. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday and is officially listed as questionable. Reed said that he has full range of motion in his injured shoulder — but also admitted that he’s still in pain. Fantasy owners are obviously in a tough spot with Redskins-Raiders not kicking off until 8:30 pm ET on Sunday night. If you’re hoping to use Reed —and he’ll be a risky play if active — you need to have a late-game alternative lined up. Jared Cook and Vernon Davis are viable options.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (rib/sternum) returned to a limited practice on Thursday after missing Wednesday's workout. "Pain is becoming manageable," HC Jay Gruden said afterward. "We'll see how he does tomorrow." Reed still sounds iffy for Sunday night's game against the Raiders -- and we might not know his official status until 7 pm ET. Fantasy owners would be wise to add Vernon Davis as a backup plan if Reed ends up inactive.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (chest) did not practice on Wednesday. He's reportedly dealing with a minor injury but isn't a lock to play against the Raiders on Sunday night. Check back tomorrow for another update.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed is considered "day-to-day" with a chest contusion, HC Jay Gruden said Monday. It was originally reported as a chest injury, then a shoulder and now a chest again. Either way, it sounds like a relatively minor injury. We'll keep an eye on Reed's practice participation this week.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed has been diagnosed with a sprained AC joint in his shoulder, according to ESPN's John Keim. The severity will determine how much time he misses. We should get another update tomorrow. TE Vernon Davis will become a legitimate fantasy option if Reed misses time. Davis posted lines of 2-50-1, 6-79, 5-47 and 1-13 in the 4 games Reed missed last year.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed exited in the 2nd half half Sunday's game against the Rams with a chest injury. He headed back to the locker room with trainers and is officially questionable to return. Stay tuned for updates.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed is battling a fracture in his big toe, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Reed seemed to let the injury slip to the media back in mid-August. The injury "affected many other parts of his foot," and Reed "could be limited throughout the season," Rapoport adds. We'll be keeping a close eye on his usage today. Consider Reed a risk/reward TE1 against a tough Eagles TE defense.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed practiced on Wednesday for the 1st time since training camp opened. He "didn't look limited," according to ESPN's John Keim, and even got in some extra work with QB Kirk Cousins after practice. Reed is hoping to play in Sunday's preseason game against the Bengals. “It’s real important to feel some hits and have live bullets at me, get my feet under me,” he said. “I’m pretty confident right now in my toe.” Reed is certainly trending in the right direction and presents plenty of upside at his late-4th-round ADP.

Washington activated TE Jordan Reed off the PUP list Sunday. He'd been working through potential solutions for a nagging toe issue since camp began but appears to be ready with a custom orthotic. We'll certainly be keeping any eye out for any setbacks or compensatory issues -- as well as general reports on Reed's game readiness. A healthy Reed, of course, has displayed as much PPR upside at anyone at the position. He remains a risk-reward pick early in fantasy football drafts

Redskins TE Jordan Reed suggested that he fractured his foot at some point. "The cleats prior to this were more narrow and pressing on the bone that I had the fracture in," he said, discussing his new footwear. "These cleats are wider and the orthotics are softer so I don't feel it." It's possible that Reed misspoke or was misquoted, but it sure sounds like he let it slip that his foot was broken. Of course, we don't know when it happened or what the exact injury was. The Redskins have been saying Reed is dealing with a toe issue. (And he might have that, too.) The whole situation is murky. What we know is that Reed remains 1 of the biggest injury risks in fantasy football. He's also led TEs in PPR points per game in 2 straight seasons. He's the ultimate risk/reward pick at his 4th-round ADP.

Washington TE Jordan Reed tried out special orthotics Saturday for his bothersome toe, The Washington Post reports. Reed spent the practice time on a separate field but reportedly did more running than in an recent practices. “He’s going to try these out for a couple of days and we’ll take a look at him probably after the Green Bay game, hopefully,” HC Jay Gruden said. Reed remains a developing situation and a risk-reward pick in fantasy football drafts.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed spoke to the media on Thursday for the 1st time since we learned of his toe issue. He revealed that the toe bothered him all last year. It felt better this spring but became a problem again when he had stem-cell treatment. "That kind of flared it up a bit on me," Reed said. "Now I'm just letting it calm down before I get out there." The specialist he visited earlier this week recommended only rest. "I've just gotta take my time, let it heal and strengthen up, then get back out there," Reed added. He remains 1 of the biggest risk/reward picks early in fantasy drafts.

Washington TE Jordan Reed saw a foot specialist Tuesday about his ailing big toe, and the visit reportedly went positively. HC Jay Gruden told The Washington Post that the checkup revealed "nothing earth-shattering" and that "everything looked pretty good." Reed reportedly put in mild workouts on a side field during Wednesday's practice, which is at least has him moving in the right direction.
