Packers Beat: WR Jayden Reed takings advantage of opportunities

The Packers have used Jayden Reed in a multitude of ways — as a punt returner, on end arounds, on jet sweeps and lined up as a traditional receiver. With what he’s done in those snaps — he’s played 417, more than 59 percent of Green Bay’s offensive snaps, second-most among wide receivers — there’s enough sample size to not only back up A.J. Dillon’s claim of being similar to Randall Cobb, but wonder whether Reed can be even more impactful as he continues to grow in the Packers’ offense.

Among rookie wide receivers, Reed ranks first in rushes of at least 10 yards (four), tied for second in plays of at least 20 yards (10) and third in total touchdowns (six) and yards per catch (13.8).

Fantasy Impact: 

It's a great story that goes into detail about Reed, his season and what his teammates think of him. As the piece went on to say, the Packers have relied heavily on Reed since Week 1 when they called his number on the second play from scrimmage of the season, returned multiple punts and tied for the team lead with five targets. Entering Week 13, he’s done nothing for that faith to wane, as he ranks second in targets (59) behind only wideout Romeo Doubs (69), second in receptions (36), first in receiving yards (497) and second in total touchdowns (six). The story pointed out Reed may be small but has strong hands and speed that pops.
