Jordan Reed continues to shine for fantasy owners

Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed picks up yards after a catch against the Denver Broncos - Justin Edmonds

Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed caught eight passes for 90 yards in the Week 8 loss to the Denver Broncos. We bring you the fantasy implications here.

Washington Redskins rookie tight end Jordan Reed caught eight passes for 90 yards in the Week 8 loss to the Denver Broncos. The rookie was targeted a team-high 14 times and continues to make the most of his opportunities. Reed is  moving up the Redskins receiving chart and currently sits second with 34 receptions for 388 yards and two touchdowns. Reed has 44 targets on the year while Pierre Garcon has 78 targets, 47 receptions, 512 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

Fantasy impact: Reed is safely in must-start territory though his value could diminish depending on Robert Griffin III's injury status. Reed has played exceptional the past two games and fantasy owners have seen his stock rise. Keep an eye on the injury to Griffin as it might be a good time to sell high on Reed since he is such a hot commodity right now. He did have a minor injury early on Sunday, but returned and put up big numbers late in the game. The Redskins will face the San Diego Chargers in Week 9.
