Jordan Reed injury update: Fantasy breakout tight end ready to go

Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Jordan Reed is turning heads in fantasy. We break down the fantasy implications.

Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed is listed as probable to face the Denver Broncos on Sunday. He has a hip injury, but was able to put in a full week of practice. Reed suffered the injury last week against the Chicago Bears, but the team said they were not concerned with his injury on Monday. Of course, playing in a full week of practice should put to bed any concerns that he's going to sit.

Perhaps no player has busted out like Reed has. He went off in that game against the Bears, catching all nine of his targets for 134 yards and a score. The Redskins have been lining him up all over the field a la New Orleans Saints TE Jimmy Graham and he's quickly become a favorite option of Robert Griffin III.

Fantasy impact: With Washington moving the ball better these days and not having a second option behind Pierre Garcon, there is a whole lot to like about Reed. He can run all sorts of routes and his size makes him a great option in the red zone. He's a nice start this week in what could be a shootout.
