Jayden Reed flashes as runner and receiver

Packers WR Jayden Reed is starting to heat up. The rookie racked up 8 catches on 10 targets for 27 receiving yards in Week 14 vs. the Giants. In addition to his pass-catching, he also recorded 4 carries for 38 yards and a TD as a runner on Monday night. The Packers have been more creative in utilizing Reed on end-around plays and getting the ball in his hands as a rusher of late, as Reed is averaging 20 rushing yards per game over the past five weeks. On top of his 5 catches and 41.4 receiving yards per game in that span, Reed is posting an average of 15.9 PPR points weekly and becoming an underappreciated difference-maker in lineups. He should be a solid flex value again in Week 15 vs. the Buccaneers (fifth-best WR matchup per our adjusted fantasy points allowed) and needs to be on fantasy managers’ radar(s) in both season-long and dynasty formats.
