2015 Outlook: Gamble (high risk)

Last updated on Jun-23-2015 by Shawn Childs

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.

Latest Update

Jul-30-15 Redskins TE Jordan Reed had stem cell shot in May

When Redskins oft-injured tight end Jordan Reed complained of knee soreness in May and was sidelined, it came as little surprise to anybody. He underwent a procedure that was assumed to be a scope on his knee. However, that was not the case. Reed actually got a stem cell shot to his knee and hamstring. Now his knee is feeling great and the hope is this will help him stay healthy this season. Something he has not managed in his first two seasons.

Fantasy Analysis:

This is positive news regarding Reed. He needs to take steps to stay healthy. The young tight end is ultra-talented but has already missed 12 games in his first two pro seasons. Niles Paul also re-signed with the Redskins this offseason and will compete with Reed. While Reed offers a ton of upside, he's also a huge injury risk. Right now he's being drafted as the TE23, it may be worth reaching a bit higher for him. Just make sure you have another start-worthy TE in case Reed misses time.
