Jordan Reed Fantasy Football News 2021

TE Jordan Reed announced his retirement. A talented pass-catcher, Reed's career was unfortunately defined by injuries, most notably his 7 documented concussions. He finishes a 7-season career with 355 catches for 3,602 yards and 28 TDs.

Niners TE Jordan Reed (illness) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams. Reed missed practice Thursday and Friday. We'll see about his status on Sunday. If he's inactive, Ross Dwelley would take lead-TE snaps for the 49ers.

49ers TE Jordan Reed (knee) will play against the Packers tonight, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Reed has been out since spraining a knee back in Week 3. It's unclear how big a role he'll play tonight, so Reed is a high-risk fantasy play. His return also makes TE Ross Dwelley tough to trust in fantasy lineups.

HC Kyle Shanahan says TE Jordan Reed could miss 6-8 weeks with the knee sprain he suffered in Sunday's win over the Giants, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. He'll go on short-term IR. You should go ahead and drop Reed from most fantasy football rosters.

49ers TE Jordan Reed suffered knee and ankle injuries in the 1st half of Sunday's game against the Giants. He returned for a bit before eventually limping off the field again. We'll update Reed's status when we learn more.

49ers TE George Kittle (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Jets. “If it was a normal person, we probably would have ruled him out earlier in the week," HC Kyle Shanahan said Friday. That sounds like Kittle's Week 3 availability is in question, but we'll obviously monitor his status this coming week. His absence on Sunday leaves Jordan Reed as San Francisco's likely lead pass-catching TE. He's more of a DFS tournament flier than a bankable season-long play.

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.

11:09am EDT 9/8/19

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.
