Jordan Reed has been a decent fill-in for an injured George Kittle over the last several weeks, keeping the San Francisco 49ers tight end role in productive hands. Last week against the Bills, he caught three passes for 32 yards and a touchdown. This week, the 49ers take on the Washington Football Team, and Reed is once again a low-end starting option in fantasy football.
Fantasy Football analysis: 49ers TE Jordan Reed
Reed has been consistently seeing four or more targets lately. His touchdown last week was a nice bonus, his first since Week 2. He obviously isn’t the same kind of world-beating tight end that Kittle is, but he’s a decent outlet for quarterback Nick Mullens.
Washington gave up 68 yards on seven catches to Eric Ebron of the Steelers last week, which is the best tight end performance they’ve allowed since Evan Engram of the Giants had 48 yards and a touchdown back in Week 9. No, you shouldn’t expect any kind of game-breaking stats from Reed this week, but as a player at one the thinnest position in fantasy football he’s a decent option for a TE2 play.
Fantasy Start/Sit Recommendation
Start Jordan Reed at TE2.
