Redskins want to use Jordan Reed on deep routes

ESPN - [Full Article]

Redskins beat writer John Keim: "I know the coaches think Jordan Reed will be an excellent target on deeper throws."

Fantasy Impact: 

Reed was on pace for 80-887-5.3 (#7 TE-type numbers) prior to his injury, but didn't even crack the 50% snaps played mark until Week 6. In the five games where he played at least 50% of his team's snaps, he averaged 6.2-76-.40 or #3 TE-type numbers. The main concern with Reed is his injury history, specifically with concussions. According to NBC Washington, Reed suffered two concussions while at Florida. If he can stay healthy, he's a likely top 5 fantasy TE, but that's no sure thing.
