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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.
Reed missed the final 6 games in his rookie campaign last season due to a season ending concussion, but says I dont think its something Ill be dealing with my whole career, he continues [they were a] fluke thing. I dont think itll happen again, claims Reed, who also suffered 2 concussions while playing as a Florida Gator. Playing as a rookie in the Shanahans Run Scheme, Reed was on pace for 80 catches for 888 yards and 6 TDs before ending his season short. The soft handed 63 Tight End possesses huge potential in Jay Grudens new Pass Happy Scheme in Washington by dominating the middle of the field while playing a role similar to Ex-Patriots TE Aaron Hernandez. Reed will remain a Top Red Zone Target with Garcon 60, Jackson 510 and Roberts 511. Reed possesses huge upside, but the injuries are a major concern when drafting this Tight End.
Reed has the ability to be an elite tight end in the league. He has had some concussion problems which are scaring some people off, but his upside is too good as Washington's only offensive minded tight end.
I believe that Reed will be the breakout tight end in the 2014 season. He caught 45 passes for 499 yards and three scores in nine games in the tumultuous Redskins' season. He is a freak athlete that is a major matchup problem for opposing defenses. He also is getting great reports out of training camp practices showing off his athleticism. If RGIII returns to health, he will open up the defense with the run threat and find Reed in some one-on-one situations.
