Jordan Reed Fantasy Football News 2019

10:10pm EDT 10/12/19

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.

For the first time in 3 years, Redskins TE Jordan Reed spent this offseason training rather than rehabbing toe injuries. He's seeing the impact early in training camp. "My feet are definitely getting stronger, way stronger than last year," he said. "I feel more explosive, and I feel a lot better." Reed turned just 29 in early July. And while he's missed 17 games over the past 3 seasons, he's ranked 1st, 9th and 13th among TEs in PPR points per game. We like him to produce as a top-12 TE when he's on the field this year. And his 15th-round ADP negates the injury risk.

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.
