Reed caught eight passes off of nine targets for 98 yards in Sunday's win over the Giants. The 98 receiving yards represented a season-high for Reed. Since returning to the lineup in Week 8, Reed has led Washington in receptions in three of five games and his five touchdowns during the span are more than any other Washington receiver this season. Reed appears to have developed a strong rapport with Kirk Cousins, one that has not been diminished by the return of DeSean Jackson. In fact, fantasy owners can expect Jackson's ability to stretch defenses vertically to benefit Reed as he does most of his damage on underneath plays.
Reed wasn't listed on Washington's injury report Wednesday. In the aftermath of Sunday's loss at Carolina, it was revealed that Reed suffered a sprained MCL in one of his knees, making his lack of presence on the injury report a surprise, to say the least. In any case, he's Washington's undisputed No. 1 tight end, from which he's put together 23 catches (on 32 targets) for 165 yards and a whopping five touchdowns over the last four games.
Reed suffered a sprained MCL during Sunday's game but was able to return to the field, the Washington Post reports. Reed will likely miss practice time this week but it's encouraging that he was able to return to the game.
Reed caught six of eight targets for 46 yards before leaving Sunday's game against the Panthers with a knee injury. Reed led the team in targets and catches before departing with what has been diagnosed as an MCL sprain. He will likely need to be reevaluated before his chances of suiting up against the Giants in Week 12 are determined.
Reed caught three of four targets for 29 yards and two touchdowns Sunday against the Saints. While he hasn't been accumulating many yards (47 in the last two games), Reed has been getting in the end zone with regularity, scoring five times in the last three games. He's got great chemistry with quarterback Kirk Cousins, particularly in the red zone, which keeps his fantasy ceiling high despite the somewhat limited yardage totals. Up next is a tough Week 11 trip to face the Panthers.
