|To say that third-year tight end Jordan Reed is injury prone might be one of the biggest understatements in fantasy. In his first two seasons with Washington, Reed played in only 20 of 36 possible games. The lure for fantasy owners, is that he played exceptionally well in those 20 games, posting just over 1000 receiving yards and three touchdowns. Perhaps most impressive, is the fact that Reed displayed excellent hands by catching nearly everything thrown his way, and he appeared to be a solid safety valve for all of the Redskins quarterbacks. The former Florida Gator underwent a knee procedure this offseason and will be out of action until training camp. Fantasy owners looking for an upside number two tight end may want to give Reed a flyer late in drafts, but expecting Reed to play a full 16-game season seems like a mistake.

Redskins feel insured with Niles Paul

|Ongoing issues forced him (Jordan Reed) to have a procedure on his left knee this spring, and because of it, he spent the entire offseason rehabilitating rather than practicing in an offense that has undergone some tweaks. The Redskins believe that Reed will be ready to go by the start of training camp. However, it’s hard to know if or how long coaches will be able to count on Reed. (Washington Post)|
FFToday's Take: The Redskins gave re-signed Niles Paul to three-year, $6 million deal this offseason in large part due to Reed's inability to stay healthy. Reed has the athletic ability to be a difference maker at the position but his 12 games missed over the last two years is concerning for fantasy owners. Reed is a TE2 given his risk but capable of producing like a TE1 when healthy.

Injury-prone label continues

FFToday's Take: Sounds like the Redskins tight end has some sort of scope on his knee. Reed has been wearing the injury-prone label for quite some time and comes with an immense amount of risk in fantasy drafts. He has TE1 upside when healthy.

Injury watch already under way for Redskins tight end

FFToday's Take: Reed has a long injury history and has yet to play in more than 11 games in season in his brief two-year career. He's a dynamic talent at his position with TE1 upside but the injury flag will devalue his fantasy stock.
