D.J. Reed Jr.
CB - SEA - OUT
Week 2 Outlook
D.J. Reed is out for the 2020 season with a torn pectoral muscle.
Mostly a special teams CB and FS in the nickel, Reed will have to wait another season to break out from a backup role. Given the recovery timeline of the injury, 49ers' general manager John Lynch stated, "[It's] ultimately, too difficult to keep a roster spot for something that might go into December." Emmanuel Moseley's fantasy stock slightly climbs as a result of Reed's absence, but there is plenty of depth at DB in the late rounds of your fantasy drafts.
Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area reports that 49ers DB D.J. Reed has sustained a torn pectoral.
Reed mostly played on special teams in 2019 but did mix in for a handful of defensive snaps here and there. He will likely be sidelined for two months with this injury, which puts his Week 1 status up in the air.
