Reynolds has served primarily as a special teams contributor during his career, though he did log 138 defensive snaps with the Falcons in 2016. Still, the 27-year-old linebacker will likely only secure a spot if he can prove a worthy contributor on special teams again.
Reynolds is still looking for his first game action since he has spent the first eight weeks of the season on injured reserve. In 2016, he played every game, but he was rarely summoned in defensive situations, much like every season in his career. Top middle linebacker Deion Jones (ankle) was limited in Wednesday's practice, though, so Reynolds could see in increase in snaps that way. Regardless, Reynolds shouldn't be considered dependable for fantasy owners.
Reynolds landed on injured reserve to start the season and recently returned to practice in preparation for Week 7. He could return to action for Sunday's game against Carolina, where he will once again primarily serve a special teams role.
Reynolds was placed on short-term injured reserve to open the season, and the earliest he could return to game action would be in Week 9 against the Panthers. However, if he isn't activated within three weeks of his return to practice, he'd then be subject to remaining on IR through season's end.
