Tight end Jordan Reed feels 100 times better than he did last season, but he’s not all the way back from the toe injuries that ruined his 2017 season.
Reed has been practicing at Washington’s training camp, but didn’t start running until a month before camp so he is still looking for the “burst, quickness, speed” he feels is missing from his game right now.
In the story, Reed said he feels good overall and feels good making cuts. He added he needs to strengthen it more to get back to his full potential. Of course, when healthy, Reed is among the top fantasy TEs, but as the story added, he's missed 30 games over the last five seasons.

When Jordan Reed is on the field, he dominates. In the last three seasons, working backwards, this is where he's ranked in PPR leagues among TEs in fantasy points per game: eighth, first, and first.
Reed is as injury-prone as it gets. He has not played 16 games in a season, with several injuries last year and toe surgery in the offseason. Last season, he missed a whopping 10 games.
2018 Bottom Line
Jordan Reed is the biggest high-risk/high-reward TE pick you can make. The good news is he has TE1 overall upside and a handcuff in Vernon Davis who costs nothing. Pairing the two in best-ball leagues and snagging Davis off waivers if Reed gets hurt is a sharp strategy.
2018 Strength of Schedule - WAS
