49ers TE Jordan Reed is expected to see a significant increase in his playing time, according to Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area. The veteran played 10 snaps in Week 1 in his debut for San Francisco. George Kittle has been ruled out for Sunday's Week 2 matchup against the New York Jets.
Reed will get a chance to be a consistent target for Jimmy Garappolo out of necessity. The bar will be set pretty low for Reed in terms of production. He is on the TE 3 radar heading into Sunday's game.
