Why Jordan Reed is Destined to For Fantasy Stardom
The first six weeks of the 2013 NFL season have not been kind to fans of the Redskins, but there's at least one bright spot for Washington and the team's coaching staff, and that's rookie tight end Jordan Reed.
A third-rounder in 2013, Reed wasn't viewed as much of a game-breaker heading into Week 1, but as the year's progressed, the 23-year-old has emerged as one of Robert Griffin III's favorite targets.
After a relatively slow start, the former Florida Gator has been a consistent threat for Kyle Shanahan's offense, and broke out for a four-catch, 58-yard outing in Week 6 against Dallas.
And today, Reed's authored the finest performance of his young career.
Against the Bears, Reed's been dynamite for the 1-4 Redskins, piling up 87 yards and a touchdown midway through the third quarter in Washington, leading the team in receiving yards by a country mile.
It's obvious that the 243-pound tight end has developed an encouraging amount of chemistry with RG3, and without a viable No. 1 receiver (sorry, Pierre Garcon) on the roster, Reed's a lock to continue to put up elite fantasy numbers from here.
He's got great hands and awareness, and with Griffin starting to look like the Pro Bowl quarterback he was as a rookie, Reed's only going to get better from here.
