Ed Reed is listed as probable for Sunday's game between the Ravens and Eagles. We break down the fantasy implications.
Ed Reed is listed as probable for Sundays' game between the Baltimore Ravens and the Philadelphia Eagles after suffering a hamstring injury during Monday night's season opener. Reed had just set the NFL career interception return yardage record on a pick-six when he was brought into the Ravens' locker room. He was able to practice this week, however, and was a full participant Friday.
Fantasy Impact: Ed Reed's ball-hawking tendencies have been rewarding fantasy owners for years, even as he approaches the twilight of his NFL career. If he can keep up the pace from an interception standpoint, he can be a valuable starting IDP option. His tackles have diminished in recent seasons, however, making him more of a boom-or-bust prospect.
