2015 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Dec-13-2015 by Shawn Childs


Week 14 DFS Update (12/13): Reed has 27 targets in his last three games, leading to 17 catches for 177 yards. His last TD came in Week 10 when he completed a three week stretch of five TDs. On the year he has six TDs, while averaging 8.3 targets per game. The Bears rank 5th in the NFL in TE Fantasy defense, with 10 teams scoring fewer than 13 Fantasy points from the TE position. TEs have only two TDs vs. them (none in the last six games). Nice option in most weeks, but this isn't a great matchup.

Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Reed had a season high in yards (98) in Week 12, with eight catches on nine targets. He has six catches or more in six of his nine games with six TDs, while averaging 8.3 targets per game. Last season he had 16 catches for 110 yards on 17 targets against the Cowboys in two games. Dallas ranks 10th in the league in TE defense, with 10 teams scoring fewer than 10 Fantasy points. Reasonable success vs. his opponent, but the Cowboys do limit the damage at the TE position.

UPDATE (11/20): As always, Reed has been excellent when healthy. So far this season he's only missed two games and he's caught 41 passes for 397 yards and six TDs. He really hasn't had a bad game. However, the fear of losing him is always there because he's such a huge injury risk. Ride him until his wheels fall off and keep your fingers crossed. He's a TE1 when healthy.

Reed is a talented tight end, but he continues to battle injuries over his two seasons in the league. Last year, Jordan caught 50 of his 65 targets (76.9 percent), although he averaged only 9.3 yards per catch while only starting in just two contests. Reed had four games with seven catches or more and three games with 10 targets or more. His best game came in Week 13 when he caught nine passes for 123 yards on 11 targets. Jordan had minor knee surgery this spring. He is expected to be ready for training camp. All of his missed time last year was due a hamstring injury. In 2013, Reed battled a couple of concussion issues. Last year, Reed was only on the field for 377 out of a possible 1,092 plays, which was a similar number to 2013 (384 snaps). With better blocking of the offensive line, Jordan will have a much better to be involved in the passing game. In 2014, Washington completed 102 passes to the TE position for 1,052 yards and two TDs. With 2/3 of the TE action, Reed would have an excellent chance of being a top 12 TE. It wouldn't surprise me to see him catch 65-plus passes for 750-plus yards with some value in TDs. With an ADP of 146 as the 18th TE drafted, Reed is solid gamble as a TE2 with TE1 upside.

11.12 Team Ritchie - Gamble but worth it in the 11th round. He has shown flashes of brilliance but seems to get injured a lot so he has focused on an off season routine to keep his body healthy. I hope it works because his skill set is a top TE. (Comments Added Thu Aug 13 8:4
