Chargers' Joe Reed: Dealing with rib issue
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (ribs) was a non-participant during Wednesday's practice.

The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but it's certainly a negative sign for Reed to start the week as a DNP. Reed has seen all of his snaps on special teams the past three games, so his absence won't affect things from a fantasy perspective. If he was forced to miss Week 13 against New England, KJ Hill would be in line for an uptick in snaps on special teams.

Chargers' Joe Reed: Solid return in Week 8 defeat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed registered a 26-yard kick return during Sunday's 31-30 loss to the Broncos.

Reed has been involved in the kick-returning realm for every game that he's been active in 2020, registering a 23.2 yards-per-attempt average across nine returns (and five games played). Los Angeles has also deployed Tyron Johnson on kickoff returns this season, though he has not fared quite as well with 17.5 yards per attempt. The Virginia product sits fifth on the WR depth chart but he continues to carve out a role for himself with special-teams acumen. He also may get another opportunity on the offensive side in the near future, after notching a seven-yard rushing TD during the first quarter of a Week 7 win over the Jaguars.

Chargers' Joe Reed: Held out for Week 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Buccaneers, Daniel Popper of The Athletic reports.

The rookie from Virginia played an important special-teams role throughout September, but Week 4 marks the first time in Reed's young career that he will not dress for game action. He registered 25.7 yards per attempt on six kick-return tries Week 1 through 3, however, those duties will be left up to KJ Hill and Desmond King when the Chargers face Tampa Bay on Sunday afternoon.

Chargers' Joe Reed: Solid day as returner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed tallied 85 kick-return yards in the 23-20 overtime loss to the Chiefs on Sunday. He also carried the ball once for eight yards.

Reed actually saw less offensive snaps (two) than his first career game (three), but regardless, it's pretty clear he's not any semblance of an offensive factor at the moment. The fifth-round pick has proven to be a fairly dominant returner, however, recording the fourth-most return yards (131) through two weeks.

Chargers' Joe Reed: Acts as primary kick returner
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed registered 46 return yards in the win Sunday over the Bengals.

Reed saw just three offensive snaps all game, but it was interesting to see him confirmed as the team's starting kick returner. A nimble player in space, it's possible Reed could see some gadget plays designed for him later in the year, but at least at the moment he's hardly worth a look in even the deepest of fantasy leagues.

Chargers' Joe Reed: Getting RB reps
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reed practiced with the running backs Monday, Gilbert Manzano of The Orange County Register reports.

The rookie fifth-round pick has a running-back body at 6-foot, 224 pounds, but he primarily worked as a wide receiver and kick return specialist in college, finishing his UVA career with 129 receptions, 106 kick returns and only 34 carries. In terms of his short-term fantasy prospects, Reed might actually be more promising at wide receiver, where the Chargers appear desperate for depth behind Keenan Allen and a banged-up Mike Williams (shoulder).

Chargers' Joe Reed: Scooped by Chargers
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Chargers selected Reed in the fifth round of the 2020 NFL Draft, 151st overall.

Reed didn't generate a lot of buzz among mainstream media during the pre-draft process but there's a lot to like about his game. He was a deep ball specialist early in his Virginia career, catching 25 of 37 targets for 465 yards (12.6 YPT) and seven touchdowns in 2018. He was used more as a chain mover in 2019 as his target count exploded to 116. He caught 77 of those targets for 679 yards. Reed also led the nation in kick return average at 33.2 a pop, and two of those returns went for touchdowns. The Chargers have a deep group of veteran receivers, but Reed is someone to keep on the radar in dynasty formats because his production and traits (6-foot, 224 pounds with a 38.0-inch vertical) suggest he can turn into a contributor down the line.
