TE - FA
Week 12 Outlook
San Francisco 49ers TE Jordan Reed has reportedly announced his retirement from the league after seven years, per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.
Reed spent the final year of his career in the Bay Area, racking up 26 receptions for 231 yards and four touchdowns across 10 games for the 49ers in 2020. The 2013 third-round draft pick by Washington was often hampered by concussions and other injuries but earned a Pro-Bowl nod in 2016 after stringing together 17 touchdowns across the 2015 and 2016 seasons. Reed's retirement will leave an increased target share for 49ers' All-Pro TE George Kittle and Ross Dwelley in a potentially revamped offense under Kyle Shanahan in 2021.
Jordan Reed failed to haul in any of his targets during the 49ers 20-12 win over the Cardinals in Week 16.
With George Kittle returning to the field, Reed's fantasy value takes a massive hit. He can be dropped to waivers ahead of the team's Week 17 tilt against the Seahawks.
Jordan Reed hauled in 2-of-5 targets for 18 yards and a touchdown during the 49ers' 33-41 loss to the Cowboys in Week 15.
Reed led all tight ends in targets and was the only one to find the endzone in this one. Still, his five targets are hardly worth getting excited for and he would have busted had he not found the endzone. He will continue to lead the 49ers' tight end pecking order, though there have been rumblings about George Kittle making a return before the end of the season. Reed is only a streamer and will not be a recommended option in Week 16 against the Cardinals.
Jordan Reed hauled in 2-of-5 targets for 13 yards during the 49ers' 15-23 loss to the WFT in Week 14.
It was an underwhelming performance for Reed as he was an afterthought on a day where Nick Mullens threw 45 passes. He did out-target Ross Dwelley 5-2 but Reed is shaping up to be a touchdown dependent fantasy option. He does get a glorious matchup against the Cowboys in Week 15 but should be viewed as more of a TE2.
Jordan Reed hauled in 3-of-4 targets for 32 yards and a touchdown during the 49ers' 24-34 loss to the Bills' on Monday Night Football.
While he was out-targeted by Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and Kendrick Bourne, Reed led all tight-ends in targets and found the endzone for the first time since Week 2. On top of that, fantasy managers have to be happy with this performance after his 2/18 dud in Week 12. Nonetheless, Reed should be a solid streamer in Week 14 against the Washington Football Team, who have been middle of the pack against opposing tight ends this season.
