Jordan Reed, TE, Redskins
2014 Outlook: Stud (low risk)Last updated on Jul-04-2014 by Larry Gold
Jordan Reed tops the list of young tight ends that are set to become an elite offensive weapon. As a rookie in 2013, the former Florida Gator made an immediate impact, hauling in a touchdown reception in only his second game. Reed and RG3 demonstrated impressive chemistry, connecting on 45-of-59 attempts. Reed was Griffin's second-favorite target behind Pierre Garcon and was on pace for over 100 targets in his first year before a severe concussion sidelined him for the rest of the season. Now (mostly) recovered, Reed is poised for a breakout year. With a supporting cast of elite receivers, defenses will struggle to cover Reed. Fantasy owners are buying into the hype as Reed is currently the sixth tight end off the board (76.67 ADP). Look for Reed to outperform all tight ends not named Graham, Gronkowski or Thomas and therefore surpass the expectations of his draft position.
Editor's note: There is a lot to like about Reed; however, his re-injury concerns are valid. A report came out earlier in the year that suggested Reed had suffered multiple concussions through college and into his rookie season. The fear being one more serious concussion could end his career, not just another season. Reed has big-time potential though, so that's just the risk owners will have to take.
