Jordan Reed Fantasy Football News 2020

The 49ers have signed TE Jordan Reed. The 30-year-old missed the entire 2019 campaign after sustaining his 7th documented concussion. When we last saw him in 2018, Reed racked up 45 catches for 499 yards and 3 TDs in 9 games. There should still be gas left in his tank for as long as he can stay on the field. Of course, Reed will be stuck behind George Kittle in San Francisco and won't be a fantasy factor without a Kittle injury.

Washington on Thursday released TE Jordan Reed. The move saves the team $8.5 million off the 2020 salary cap. Reed, of course, didn't play a single game in 2019. He appeared in just 65 of a possible 96 contests over his previous 6 campaigns. With Reed gone and Vernon Davis retired, Washington figures to address TE this offseason. Jeremy Sprinkle led Washington TEs with 40 targets and 26 receptions in 2019.

TE Jordan Reed has cleared the league's concussion protocol, according to The Athletic's Ben Standig. He sustained his 7th reported concussion last August and missed the entire 2020 season. Washington is expected to release him and save $8.5 million against the cap, but Reed hopes to sign and play elsewhere. We'll see how free agency treats him. Reed turns 30 in July.

The Redskins have placed TE Jordan Reed (concussion) on IR. He could be reactivated in Week 14, but there's no reason for Washington to bring him back in a lost season. Reed can safely be dropped from all redraft rosters.

Redskins TEs Vernon Davis and Jordan Reed are out for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins with their concussions. With both guys out last week, TE Jeremy Sprinkle ran just 11 pass routes and TE Jerome Cunningham 4. Even in a plus matchup against Miami, avoid this situation in fantasy lineups.

Redskins TEs Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis are both out for Week 5 with their concussions. That leaves TE Jeremy Sprinkle atop the depth chart. He's not a fantasy option vs. the Patriots.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) is out for Sunday’s game against the Giants. There’s still no timetable for his return. TE Vernon Davis has totaled just 59 scoreless yards over the past 2 weeks after a strong opener. But he boasts some upside in a potential shootout vs. the G-Men.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden said Tuesday that he's expecting TE Jordan Reed (concussion) to return this season. "He has seen specialists, and we are just trying to get to the bottom of it and figuring out the best way to make him more comfortable, get him back in the lineup," Gruden added. The fact that Reed's status for the rest of the season is in any doubt is concerning enough. There's still no timetable for his return from his 7th documented concussion. Although the TE position is thin, Reed isn't a must-hold in fantasy leagues without an IR spot.

Washington has ruled TE Jordan Reed out for Monday night's game against the Bears because of his concussion. That means Vernon Davis gets another start.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) didn’t practice on Thursday or Friday and is a long shot for Monday night’s game against the Bears. We’ll get another update on him this afternoon, but look for Vernon Davis to get another game as Washington’s lead TE. He’s not a great fantasy play vs. Chicago.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. We'll see if he can get cleared ahead of Week 3. Vernon Davis will again serve as Washington's lead pass-catching TE after hanging a 4-59-1 line on the Eagles in the opener. He's a viable fantasy starter in Week 2 vs. a Dallas defense that just coughed up 116 yards and a score to Giants TE Evan Engram.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) remained limited in Thursday's practice. So he still has work to do to clear the concussion protocol, although ESPN's John Keim says there's "more optimism" about Reed this week than last. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) is inactive for today’s opener against the Eagles. Vernon Davis will serve as Washington’s starting TE but isn’t a recommended fantasy play in a tough matchup.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the Eagles. He still wasn't cleared for full contact as of Friday afternoon. HC Jay Gruden expects to have a better read on Reed's Week 1 availability on Saturday morning. We'll look for updates, but don't plan on having Reed in fantasy lineups.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed was limited again in Thursday's practice and remains in the concussion protocol, HC Jay Gruden confirmed. At this point, fantasy owners shouldn't bank on having Reed in Week 1 fantasy lineups. It's a tough matchup against the Eagles, anyway.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) was listed as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice. HC Jay Gruden said he did some individual work and attended meetings. Reed is making progress through the protocol, but we'd still consider him questionable to receive full clearance ahead of Sunday's opener vs. the Eagles. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (concussion) wasn't on the practice field for the start of Monday's practice, according to ESPN's John Keim. HC Jay Gruden said last week that he expected Reed to be cleared in time for Sunday's opener, but he still has multiple stages of the concussion protocol to pass through. Fantasy owners can't bank on having Reed in Week 1 lineups.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden expects TE Jordan Reed (concussion) to be cleared before the season opener. "We're quite confident that Jordan will be fine," Gruden said. Reed's concussion last Thursday night was the 7th of his career, but it sounds like he's making good progress through the protocol. He remains 1 of the biggest injury risks in fantasy football -- but also a good bet for TE1 production whenever he's on the field.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Redskins TE Jordan Reed is in the concussion protocol after taking a shot to the head in Thursday night's preseason game. It's the 7th documented concussion of his career and makes him iffy to be cleared for Week 1. We'll keep an eye on his progress.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed is being evaluated for a concussion, the team announced during Thursday night's preseason game. This is an even bigger concern considering Reed has 6 concussions on his resume. We'll look for an update, but if Reed is diagnosed with a concussion he'll be in danger of missing the start of the season.
