Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 11: Jordan Reed

Jordan Reed had a bad game in Week 9, but can he turn it around in Week 11 for his fantasy owners?

Washington tight end Jordan Reed is finally healthy. He couldn't shake his hamstring strain for about the first two months of the season, but he's been able to stay on the field thanks to better blocking.

Reed is playing around two-thirds of snaps in the past couple games and has seen his chances go up, playing 45 of 69 snaps back in Week 9. Well, that high snap count actually didn't lead to production with only one catch for 17 yards in quarterback Robert Griffin III's return in Week 9. He did catch 12 balls in his previous two games.

Reed gets a nice matchup against a susceptible Tampa Bay Buccaneers defense. The Bucs rank as the 19th-worst defense against fantasy tight ends, so Reed should have a bounce-back game.

Fantasy impact: Fantasy owners shouldn't get too caught up in bad games. It just happens with tight ends as one of the most inconsistent positions in fantasy football. Reed is a TE9-14 this week.
