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.
QB Colt McCoy took over for Kirk Cousins in the second half of the Washington Redskins game with Tennessee Sunday. Cousins was 10-of-16 in the first half for 139 yards, but threw an interception and lost a fumble, leading to a 10-6 deficit heading into the locker room.
McCoy immediately hooked up with WR Pierre Garcon on a 70-yard touchdown pass and proceeded to complete 11-of-12 passes for 128 yards. He led the Redskins on a 10-play, 76-yard drive in the last 3:16 to set up the game-winning, 22-yard field goal by Kai Forbath.Fantasy Analysis:
Who doesn't love a good old quarterback controversy? With the way McCoy played compared to Cousins, it's bound to be all anyone will be talking about in the nation's capital this week. Cousins has struggled, throwing eight interceptions to only 10 touchdowns. That isn't going to cut it in Washington. The Redskins brass is paying out too much cheese to its players to be content with that type of performance.
If McCoy gets a shot to start going forward, he is in a position to be somewhat successful, with a good group of skill players at his disposal. Not many teams can boast a lineup that would compare with WRs Garcon, DeSean Jackson, TE Jordan Reed, and RBs Alfred Morris and Roy Helu.
