Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 10: Jordan Reed

Tommy Gilligan-USA TODAY Sports

Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed is eyeing a big game against a poor Minnesota Vikings secondary. We break down the fantasy implications.

After breaking out for a few games, Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed had a quiet day in Week 9, catching four passes for just 37 yards. Before that game, Reed had eight catches for 90 yards against the Denver Broncos and nine catches for 134 yards and a touchdown against the Chicago Bears.

Reed, a rookie selected in the third round out of Florida, has caught 38 passes for 425 yards and two touchdowns this season. He's come on strong for the Redskins outside of that game against San Diego and some games earlier in the season.

He'll be eyeing a rebound effort against the Minnesota Vikings and their struggling secondary in Week 10. Minnesota has the No. 29 pass defense in the NFL, allowing 291.1 passing yards per game on average.

Fantasy Impact: Reed has not established himself as a must-start fantasy tight end just yet, but he has a lot going for him. He's young, and Robert Griffin III likes throwing to him. In addition, there's not a whole lot of receiving options on the Redskins. In deep leagues, Reed is becoming worth a start, and if you're struggling with the decision between Reed and someone else, remember that this is a very desirable matchup for him.
