Redskins TE Jordan Reed caught five of his six targets for 54 yards in Washington's 19-17 win over Tennessee in Week 7. Reed split snaps with Niles Paul for much of the game.

Fantasy Impact: Reed continues to re-establish himself after missing the bulk of five straight games with a hamstring injury. If he can manage to stay healthy - a big if - Reed could have a productive second half of the season. When healthy, Reed is a low-end TE1.

After missing five straight games, Redskins TE Jordan Reed returned to the starting lineup in Week 6. Though his team lost, Reed was impressive, catching eight of his 11 targets for 92 yards.

Fantasy Impact: Reed has proven to be a talented but brittle receiving TE for Washington. When healthy, Reed should be considered a low-end TE1. Reed should be in your lineup when the Redskins face Tennessee in Week 7.

Redskins' TE was limited in practice on Wednesday, but did more work than he has been able to do since sustaining the injury. He has missed four straight games with his hamstring injury. Reed said he was "definitely shooting for Sunday," and later said, "I feel like if I get everything done this week and everything goes smoothly, I'll be out there Sunday." (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: It finally seems like he has a legitimate chance to play this week. If he does, the team will keep him on a snap count since his hammy is still weak. You can be cautiously optimistic that Reed plays and view him as a high-end TE2 this week.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed missed his fourth consecutive start since injuring his hamstring against Houston in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact: Reed was a gametime decision against Seattle and has a good shot to return in Week 6 when the Redskins visit the Arizona Cardinals. Even if he does return to action, owners should temper their expectations after a month without game action and inconsistent QB play.

Fantasy Impact: This suggests in setback in Reed's recovery. Yesterday there seemed to be cautious optimism that he could suit up, but after missing practice on Saturday, one can figure that he will likely miss Monday's game. TE Niles Paul will be the beneficiary and will be a high-end TE2 if Reed sits.

Fantasy Impact: Unless you have Niles Paul and are able to make a last minute decision on Reed, it is wise to avoid taking the chance on him until he completes a full game. Despite his upside, Reed's stock is falling.

By Jonathan Ebanks, Redskins Correspondent, Fri, Oct 3rd 7:12pm EDT

Redskins' TE Jordan Reed was limited in practice on Friday due to the hamstring injury he suffered in Week 1 against Houston. Gruden said of Reed, "We just have got to wait and see how he feels tomorrow moving forward. It’s hard for him when he’s not getting a lot of team reps. He’s getting some but not very many. We’ll have to wait and see how he does tomorrow to make that final decision, and if we feel like he’s ready -- not only physically but mentally, that he’s got everything down…” If Reed is inactive, TE Niles Paul would replace him. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: The Redskins should decide Reed's availability after Saturday's practice. He seems like a 50/50 shot right now ... perhaps 51/49. However, the team seems to be less optimistic than they were yesterday about his chances to play on Monday. Even if Reed plays, he still wouldn't be an advised start against the tough Seattle defense, especially when not fully healthy, and with Paul poised to steal some targets. Try to find another option at TE and avoid the Redskins' TEs this week if you can.

Redskins' TE Jordan Reed returned to practice on Tuesday as a limited participant. Reed hasn't played since straining his hamstring against Houston in Week 1. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Reed practicing does give the team some hope that he will be available for Monday night's tilt with Seattle, but he will more than likely miss that contest. Reed should be a borderline TE1/2 upon his return. TE Niles Paul will fill in for Reed if he's inactive. Treat Paul like a high-end TE2 this week if Reed doesn't play.

By Jonathan Ebanks, Redskins Correspondent, Sat, Sep 27th 9:22am EDT

Redskins' TE Jordan Reed has missed time since suffering a hamstring injury in Week 1, but head coach Jay Gruden believes there could be a chance that Reed could be back on Oct. 6 to play Seattle. (Source: CSN Washington)

Fantasy Impact: Hamstring injuries linger and are very difficult to overcome. Gruden acknowledged that Reed is "rehabbing as hard as he can go right now." Reed has now missed 10 games due to injury since being drafted in the third round of the 2013 draft. At this point, he has a higher chance of missing the game than he does of playing in it.

By Scott Ellinwood, Redskins Correspondent, Fri, Sep 26th 4:53pm EDT

Redskins TE Jordan Reed was inactive for the team's 45-14 loss to the Giants in Week 4. Reed suffered a strained hamstring against Houston on opening day and hasn't made it back to the practice field yet.

Fantasy Impact: Reed needs to get back on the field - and soon. Niles Paul has looked very good filling in for Reed and could play himself into a larger, more permanent role.

By Jonathan Ebanks, Redskins Correspondent, Wed, Sep 24th 9:01pm EDT

Redskins' TE Jordan Reed has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the New York Giants due to a hamstring injury. He also said he was unsure about facing Seattle in the next game. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Niles Paul looks poised to deliver TE1 value this week against the Giants. If you have him, feel free to start him with confidence!

By Jonathan Ebanks, Redskins Correspondent, Tue, Sep 23rd 11:28pm EDT

Redskins' TE Jordan Reed missed his second straight day of practice. He said that he was improving, but didn't know when he would be cleared. (Source: CSN Washington)

Fantasy Impact: Reed is practically no shot to play on Thursday and he is likely to miss Week 5 at this point.

Redskins' TE Jordan Reed did not practice on Monday due to a hamstring injury. (Source: John Keim via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Since the team plays against the Giants on Thursday, it is very unlikely Reed will suit up this week. Niles Paul would start in his place and be a high-end TE2.

By Scott Ellinwood, Redskins Correspondent, Sun, Sep 21st 5:32pm EDT

Redskins TE Jordan Reed was inactive for Week 3 after failing to practice all week with a strained hamstring. Niles Paul has capably filled in for Reed during his recovery.

Fantasy Impact: Frustration seems to be growing with the team over Reed's seeming fragility. Reed will need to practice to get back on the field for game action. It may be a stretch for Reed to play in Thursday night's game against the Giants. More realistically, owners should be looking to the team's Week 5 matchup against Seattle.

By Scott Ellinwood, Redskins Correspondent, Wed, Sep 17th 1:32pm EDT

Redskins TE Jordan Reed worked off to the side with other injured players and has not practiced yet this week as he recovers from a strained hamstring. (Source: John Keim via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: HC Jay Gruden has made it clear that Reed won't play on Sunday without practicing by Friday. Keep an eye on the practice reports Thursday and Friday to before putting Reed in your lineup this weekend. The Redskins may not feel a pressing need to rush him back after Niles Paul had an excellent game in Week 2 against the Jaguars.

By Scott Ellinwood, Redskins Correspondent, Mon, Sep 15th 4:03pm EDT

Redskins HC Jay Gruden said on Monday that Reed's status for the Week 3 matchup in Philadelphia is uncertain. Gruden said that if Reed doesn't practice by Friday, or he won't play against the Eagles. (Source: Mike Jones via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Keep an eye on Reed's status throughout the week. The Redskins may be content to stick with Niles Paul after his 99-yard and a TD performance in Week 2 and simply give Reed another week or two to heal.

By Scott Ellinwood, Redskins Correspondent, Thu, Sep 11th 3:48pm EDT

Redskins TE Jordan Reed, who has been dealing with a strained hamstring, is doubtful for Week 2 against Jacksonville. (Source: Jason Reid via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: When healthy, Reed is a difference maker. However, in his brief pro career he has had trouble staying on the field. Monitor his status on Sunday morning, but it appears that Reed will be inactive for the team's home opener.

By Jonathan Ebanks, Redskins Correspondent, Mon, Sep 8th 11:04pm EDT

Washington tight end Jordan Reed had an MRI done on his "mild" hamstring strain, but the team is preparing to be without him for "significant time". Head coach Jay Gruden commented on how long Reed could be out for, "We'll see how it goes with the trainer. It'll probably be a week, or two, or three. We'll see." (Source: Washington Post)

Fantasy Impact: Who knows how long Reed will be out for? However, almost all can agree that Reed is almost a lock to miss Week Two. TE Niles Paul was the main beneficiary of Reed's absence on Sunday and that should remain going into Week Two. Either way, don't look at Paul as anything more than a desperation TE2 against the Jags.

By Jonathan Ebanks, Redskins Correspondent, Sun, Sep 7th 4:34pm EDT

Redskins tight end Jordan Reed injured his hamstring in Houston on Sunday. He doesn't know the severity of the injury, but reportedly wasn't moving well after the game. Reed only had one catch for four yards. He'll get an MRI on Monday. (Source: Tarik El-Bashir via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Uh oh. We all knew about Reed's injury history going into the season, so hopefully you drafted a backup TE if you got him. Hamstring injuries tend to linger, so even though we don't know how bad it is, this could very well be the first of many hamstring issues for him.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed has been fighting through a thumb injury and was listed as questionable on the team's Week 1 injury report. Reed fully participated in Friday's practice and is expected to play. (Source: CSN Washington)

Fantasy Impact: Monitor the inactive report on Sunday and start Reed if he is active. The Redskins will be relying on the run game and underneath routes to manage the Houston pass rush. If he plays, Reed could be primed for a big outing.

By Jonathan Ebanks, Redskins Correspondent, Fri, Sep 5th 11:10pm EDT

Redskins tight end Jordan Reed is listed as questionable with a thumb injury, but Reed said he expected to play after practicing fully on Friday. (Source: Washington Post)

Fantasy Impact: Reed should play this week, so don't hesitate to start him as a TE1 this week unless you have a better option available.

By Scott Ellinwood, Redskins Correspondent, Sat, Aug 23rd 11:31pm EDT

Redskins TE Jordan Reed had an unimpressive outing against the Ravens on Saturday night. He caught one pass for seven yards and had a big play nullified by a penalty.

Fantasy Impact: Consider this performance an aberration. Reed is the real deal as a pass catching TE and should be a starter in 12-team leagues that use TEs.

By Scott Ellinwood, Redskins Correspondent, Tue, Aug 19th 9:29am EDT

Redskins TE Jordan Reed only played on about three drives against Cleveland but did catch two passes for 20 yards including a first down conversion.

Fantasy Impact: Reed has continued to look good all summer and there is no reason to believe he won't have a breakout campaign in 2014. He is athletic and excels at finding soft spots in coverage. Comcast SportsNet beat reporter Rich Tandler believes Reed could lead the team in TD receptions this year.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed finally got back to practicing on Thursday after a stomach virus took him out of commission since Saturday. He had watched practice on Tuesday, but actually worked with the team on Thursday and continued practicing long after practice finished. (Source: Washington Post)

Fantasy Impact: The athletic, receiving tight end is back in action and is poised to post TE1 numbers this season as the third receiving option on his team, behind Pierre Garcon and Desean Jackson. The only problem is his injury frequency. However, if he can stay healthy, an 800 yard, 7 TD season is very probable, to say the least.

By Scott Ellinwood, Redskins Correspondent, Tue, Aug 12th 9:28am EDT

Redskins TE Jordan Reed returned to practice on Tuesday after missing the previous three days with a stomach virus. (Source: Mike Jones via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: There are big expectations for Reed this season, but he is still only a second-year player learning a new offense. Reed needs all the practice reps and game snaps he can get if he is to deliver for fantasy owners in 2014.

By Jonathan Ebanks, Redskins Correspondent, Sun, Aug 10th 12:13pm EDT

During the Patriots-Redskins joint practice sessions, reporter Mike Reiss and Patriots coaches considered Reed to be one of the best offensive players on the field. His big highlight was a great catch on an out route right in between CB Darrelle Revis and S Devin McCourty. (Source: ESPN Boston)

Fantasy Impact: The only thing keeping Reed from delivering TE1 value this year is his penchant for missing games due to injuries, especially concussions. His concussion history is reminiscent of Austin Collie's and one has to wonder how many more concussions he will have to suffer before his health takes precedence over his career. For now, keep him penciled in as a solid TE1.

Redskins TE Jordan Reed missed Saturday's practice due to illness. He should be ready in plenty of time for the team's August 18th matchup against the Browns at FedEx Field. (Source: John Keim via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Breathe a sigh of relief, fantasy owners. The very promising second-year TE has a history of injuries, including missing several games in 2013 with a concussion. Continue to target Reed as a mid to low-end TE1.

By Jonathan Ebanks, Redskins Correspondent, Sat, Aug 9th 3:24pm EDT

TE Jordan Reed has not been spotted at practice today. No information about his omission has been released as of 3:24 PM on Saturday, August 9. (Source: Mike Jones via Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Uh oh. Let's hope it's nothing severe. The athletic tight end did miss seven games last season, six of them from a concussion. Reed was also pretty injury prone in college, so much of his success on this level will depend on his health. Stay tuned!

By Scott Ellinwood, Redskins Correspondent, Sat, Jul 26th 2:03pm EDT

Jordan Reed continues an impressive offseason in early camp practices, prompting fellow TE Niles Paul to say 'that's a Pro Bowl tight end right there.' (Source: Washington Post)

Fantasy Impact: Second year TE Jordan Reed has breakout potential this season as part of a talented corps of pass catchers that also includes Pierre Garcon, DeSean Jackon and Andre Roberts. Keep an eye on the Redskins offensive line play. If the starters look good, and Reed stays healthy, he has the potential to exceed 1,000 yards and seven TDs.
