Jaworski: Jordan Reed 'will be sensational'

ESPN - [Full Article]

ESPN's Ron Jaworski on Redskins TE Jordan Reed: "The guy will be sensational. He’s one of the guys that jumps off the tape at you. I like to use the word flash. We saw a little bit of it earlier this season but clearly against Chicago I saw a lot more of it. We were talking here, he reminded us on the field of an Aaron Hernandez. He has that kind of wide receiver movement for a big guy. This guy is going to scare the hell out of defenses. They can’t load up the box when you have the ability to get him down the field matched against linebackers and safeties. That’s a mismatch. He has a chance to be really good. We talk about splash plays; the splash plays against Chicago came from him."

Fantasy Impact: 

Over the past three games, Jordan Reed has averaged 6.0-99-.33, including his 9-134-1 effort in Week 7 against the Bears. He holds low-end TE1 value in redraft formats. He's a rookie, so he's bound to have some struggles, but as the #2 option in what has become a pass-happy offense, the sky is the limit.
