Jordan Reed Fantasy Football News 2019

12:12pm EST 12/27/18

The Redskins have placed TE Jordan Reed (toe) on IR. He'll miss Sunday's finale against the Eagles and end up with a 54-558-2 line in 13 games. That's actually the 2nd most games Reed has played in his 6 NFL seasons. He'll be an interesting case this offseason. Reed is set to count $9.7 million against the 2019 cap but would also cost $3.6 million to cut.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (foot) is out for Saturday’s game against the Titans. TE Vernon Davis, meanwhile, is listed as questionable after experiencing concussion symptoms on Wednesday. He didn’t practice on Thursday. We’ll see if Davis is able to get cleared by Saturday afternoon, but this is a situation to avoid.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (foot, ankle) is out for Sunday’s game against the Jaguars. He hasn’t been placed on IR, so Washington evidently believes he could be back this season. TE Vernon Davis serves as the Redskins’ lead TE this weekend but is a shaky fantasy option with Josh Johnson under center.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed's foot injury isn't believed to be major, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. "But given the timing of it, he may have played his last down this season with three games to go," Rapoport adds. We'll look for further updates on Reed, but fantasy owners need to be making other plans. Vernon Davis will step in as Washington's lead TE for however long Reed is out, but the team's QB problems will make him tough to trust in lineups.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed suffered what appeared to be a foot injury in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Giants. This might be related to the toe issues that have bothered him for a couple of years now. We'll pass along an update on Reed when we get one.

Update: Reed has been ruled out with his foot injury. Vernon Davis steps in as Washington's pass-catching TE.

Giants S Landon Collins suffered a shoulder injury in Sunday's win over the Bears and will miss next Sunday's visit to Washington, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. The report gives no specifics on the injury so far, adding that the team will "evaluate" it "going forward." Collins' absence is bad news for the Giants' team D in an upside matchup with Mark Sanchez and a Washington offense ravaged by injury. It's good news, however, for Washington TE Jordan Reed.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (back) is active for tonight's game against the Eagles. He was limited in practice all week, but there was never any concern about his availability for this one. Reed is safe to keep in fantasy lineups.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (back) was limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable for Monday night's game against the Eagles. We haven't heard any concern about his availability, but nothing can be taken for granted with this guy. We'll look for an update on Reed's status tomorrow morning.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Washington RB Chris Thompson is expected to miss today's game against the Panthers. He's officially questionable because of rib and knee injuries. Washington also reportedly expects to be without WR Jamison Crowder (ankle). Factor in injuries for Paul Richardson and Josh Doctson, and the target ceiling for TE Jordan Reed -- in a positive matchup for TE scoring -- only rises higher. Adrian Peterson could see a bit more backfield receiving work with Thompson out. And Kapri Bibbs figures to be in the picture as well.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden expects TE Jordan Reed's role to grow as he continues to work back from offseason surgeries on both of his big toes. “He's going to get more and more as the season goes on,” Gruden said. “As Jordan gets more comfortable, and when we feel great about his health -- which we do right now -- I think you'll see more and more of Jordan." Reed has played 56.5% of Washington's offensive snaps through 3 games, although he run a route on 68% of QB Alex Smith's dropbacks. Both marks could grow when the 'Skins come out of their Week 4 bye. That's exciting considering Reed already ranks 4th among TEs in targets (20), 4th in catches (14) and 8th in yards (168).

Redskins TE Jordan Reed put in a full practice on Wednesday and isn't listed on the Week 1 injury report. We didn't see him this preseason, but it sounds like he enjoyed a healthy August. HC Jay Gruden said Wednesday that Reed's snap count could "vary" this season but added that he expects him to play “quite a bit.” Whenever Reed is active, he's worth getting into fantasy lineups as a TE1 with upside.

Toe problems hampered Redskins TE Jordan Reed all last year, ultimately limiting him to just 6 games. He had surgeries to remove the sesamoid bone in both big toes and now feels "100 times better." Reed added, "I can tell a difference because with the toes it was pain. I had pain all season, all offseason, and that pain was shutting down certain parts of the body that I needed. So you remove the pain and now I'm building my body back up and feeling great again." Reed, who's missed 32 games through 5 NFL seasons, remains 1 of the biggest injury risks in fantasy football. But he also led all TEs in PPR points per game in both 2015 and 2016. That upside makes him well worth a shot at his 9th-round ADP.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) was working off to the side of Wednesday's OTA session, according to ESPN's John Keim. Reed went through some agility drills and looked "fine," per Keim. We'd ideally like to see him full-go, but it's at least good to hear he's on the field doing something. The oft-injured TE missed another 10 games last year and had surgery this offseason to address the fractured toe that hampered him last summer. We'll see where Reed is at when training camp opens, but he'll remain 1 of the biggest injury risks in fantasy football. The good news is that risk is largely baked into his 9th-round price tag.

Redskins HC Jay Gruden revealed on Tuesday that TE Jordan Reed recently had a "procedure done on his toes." We don't have any other details, but this is presumably related to the fractured toe that ailed Reed last summer. "Hopefully we'll see a 100% healthy Jordan by training camp," Gruden added. Hopefully. Reed missed another 10 games last year, bringing the total to 28 through 5 NFL seasons. There's still upside with the 27-year-old, but Reed should be viewed as a risk/reward TE2 in 2018 fantasy drafts.

The Redskins have placed TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) on IR. It ends another injury-wrecked season. Reed appeared in just 6 games, tallying 27 catches for 211 yards and 2 scores. He topped 48 yards just once all year and averaged a career-low 7.8 yards per catch. It's fair to wonder if all the injuries are already sapping his ability, despite the fact that he's still only 27.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Chargers. He didn’t practice all week and doesn’t seem close to a return. TE Vernon Davis is a risk/reward Week 14 play after posting his 2 highest snap rates of the season the past 2 weeks — but totaling just 2 catches on 3 targets.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) will not play against the Chargers on Sunday. Reed hasn't practiced in nearly a month. The 5-7 Redskins should just shut him down for the season. TE Vernon Davis has disappeared lately, totaling just 2 catches on 3 targets over the past 2 games.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Cowboys. There's been nothing to suggest that he's close to a return. Reed is droppable in shallow-bench leagues. Despite his Thanksgiving goose egg, Vernon Davis remains a TE1 vs. Dallas' 22nd-ranked TE defense.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) has been ruled out for Thursday night's game against the Giants. He hasn't practiced since seemingly suffering a setback 2 weeks ago. Fire up Vernon Davis as a strong TE1 vs. the league's worst TE defense.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed (hamstring) is out for Sunday’s game against the Saints. There’s still no timetable for his return. Vernon Davis gets another start and is a rock-solid TE1 even against a New Orleans defense that’s been tough against the position so far.
