For me, Reed is not one of those "if he's active, he's in my line-up" guys at this point. He needs to get back on the field, get through a game and play like Jordan Reed before I slot him in...

I picked him up and did wait to start him. I started Robert Tonyan instead. I got 1.25 points for Tonyan vs 1.05 for Reed. So I was thrilled I made the right decision there.

I almost picked up Ertz but I grabbed Gronk instead

Here is a complete list of every single TE in the entire NFL who has scored 8+ points in every game this year (PPR scoring): Jordan Reed Here is a complete list of every rookie tight end in NFL histor

My gut says he doesn't play this week. In all reality why would the Redskins want him to play this week. I know Vernon Davis isn't the talent that Reed is but he's been filling in more than adequately and the Redskins have a bye week 9 which would give Reed another week of rest to fully and completely recover from his concussion. All games by the Redskins to hopefully get Cincinnati to game plan for Reed possibly coming back this week. We've seen teams play this game before with many players and then they end up not playing and we're probably not going to play in the first place.

Because going into the bye at 5-3 sounds much better than going into the bye at 4-4

There is no such thing as limited with concussion. This is not a soft tissue injury, you are either cleared and full go or you don't play.

When active, Reed plays like Reed. It's rare for him to be active and not have an impact.

Latest rotoworld blurb says that "Reed expects to play."

If he's cleared I don't see any reason not to start him. I'm not a concussion expert, but I assume that unlike a knee injury or something, you aren't "eased in" after a concussion. Your head is either cleared or it isn't.

Reed had a long history of being active and playing one quarter or so. I've owned him forever and regretted it until last year.

Would like to see the data on this.

If this was all the case, why was Bloom recommending him on the 2/3 turn?

As an aside, Reed is saying he's packing his bags as if he's going to be cleared and heading to London.

Who is starting? 

 

The only TE's I like more than him this week for sure are Olsen, Gronk and Graham with Barnridge close..

 

So I"m starting him and with the 100% confidence I would of a top 5 ranked TE.

Starting Reed for sure if he plays. Good thing is we'll know early if he isn't or not. But I think he plays.

I kind of think we already know, he'd have had to visited the independent doc before he gets on the flight and I can't see him getting on that flight if he's did not get cleared.

that makes no sense.  Why would they put him on the plane if not cleared to play?

He was actually cleared by the independent neurologist to play so technically he's been cleared. 

At this point the team wants to, or at least is saying they want to, see how he responds to the flight and Friday's practice. Big difference between needing to get cleared to play versus needing to avoid a setback to play. So when Gruden or reports state he's not been cleared to play that's technically not correct, they are just leaving the door open in case he has a setback.

Understanding the number of concussions Reed has had, I think Gruden is just taking the politically correct approach here. 

God knows he doesn't want it on his head if Reed goes the wrong way 10 years down the line.

Sucks.  I only have Hurns or Reed available, and Jax plays tonight.  Sounds like we won't know until tomorrow's practice.

Yeah, need the all clear. I'm looking to deal with other issues, but until we get the thumbs up, I have to keep V. Davis on speed dial.

Just realizing that the Cinci/Wash game is in London and lineups need to be set by 9:30 EST. Great. Things are always complicated with Reed. Jeesh.

All indications are that Reed is playing, but you never know. Would be a shocker if he's inactive since all context cues point to Reed being Reed tmrw.

Would love to discard all my Reed plan Bs (Fleener, CJ Fied, Z. Miller) so I can attend to other issues in lineups, but feel like there's that 1% chance Gruden pulls a fast one tmrw morning.

And of course, I have a HWeen party that will keep me up late and makes early lineup decisions...questionable.

Anyone setting and forgetting Reed today? Would love to get the all clear signal today damn it.

It is now after 8:00 pm in London and it would be great if there was some kind of update on Reed and his status for tomorrow's game.

I just checked Twitter and didn't see anything new posted.  I will keep checking.

JORDAN REED, JOSH NORMAN PARTICIPATE IN SELECT PARTS OF REDSKINS FRIDAY PRACTICE

 

Excerpt:

Quote

Tight end Jordan Reed, who missed the last two games with a concussion, appeared to take part in the walkthrough fully. He said earlier this week that he feels 100 percent and ready to play on Sunday. Reed will still have to get cleared by Redskins doctors in order to play

Why? He plays at 8:30.  We'll all be able to make an educated decision. 

it is 9:30 and AM on ET ... sorry those of us on the Left Coast are not likely to get up at 6:30 AM to check lineups

6:30 for me. Which is when I'll be at the Redskins bar. Starting him over the Houston guy in one league. Benching for Graham in my other. When I drafted Graham as a backup in the 10th I said "he should be back to normal right when Reed gets another concision" :lol: wait... :kicksrock:

Me and in many leagues.

He's good folks, for now anyway. There is nothing to worry about regarding him being active tomorrow. I mean we hear about players like Lynch having back spasms in warmups so anything can happen but going to take some out of the blue thing like that to happen. He got cleared by independent doctor before he ever got on that flight, unless you are sitting on Gronk or Olsen and can only start one TE put him in your lineup and sleep in.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Jordan Reed (concussion, questionable) is expected to play Week 8 against the Bengals.

 

As is Josh Norman (concussion, questionable). This is not a surprise after both traveled with the team to London, but it is good to get confirmation. Reed is a locked-in TE1 in a great matchup.

The Redskins have four options at TE so not expecting much from Reed this year, but he looked good in his brief action against the Bills. Big body with good quickness. Definitely should be on all deep dynasty rosters (20+ players per team)

If you got 'em, smoke 'em. Reed's back in my lineup today. ??

What would you target in dynasty in a like-for-like swap? Eifert? Hunter Henry and a pick?

Maybe if the pick was with Reed for Henry.

Value change at all for you too? 

This isn't a troll or "told you so" posts (I don't do those). Serious. Now that he is back and balling like a beast, is it still smarter to trade him for a guy like Henry even if you have to throw in a pick? I' m back to holding. I just can't give those points up.

I'd buy low on reed in a redraft in a heartbeat. What's the risk? The TE position is absolutely horrible this year. Again if you are buying low you are not giving up much and the reward I'd a stud te. 

Hope you listened.

Value is same for me for both Henry and Reed. Reed is dominant and people overreacted saying he was done. I also think people overreacted to Henry being a TE1 right now, Gates was always going to cloud up his situation. But in terms of dynasty. I own both of them a lot,  in 3 different leagues I own both in same league and they are TE premium leagues. I still value Henry over Reed in dynasty, nothing for me changed on that over last 3 weeks.

Reed will remain a major injury risk, always. While I think people place to much emphasis on the number of concussions he has had what is an issue for him is he has shown he is prone to concussions and his last 3 have all required multi-week absences.  At some point the worry for me is not as much he gets up to number 7 or number 8 or whatever number but that he gets one he can't recover or the symptoms are so severe he's finally had enough-clearance or not. So for example he's a solid 5 years younger than Olsen which in dynasty would be huge as that's like half a career  or more but in his case I don't really see him that way as I can't sit here and truly feel confident he has that kind of career longevity.

That last line of you wrote is the huge key however and why I continue to take a gamble on him. Jordan Reed wins you leagues. When he suits up he's as much of a weekly difference maker as exists, at least in TE premium leagues.

With him seemingly coming back strong, in dynasty I would trade him for Henry straight up if I could work it out.

Exactly.  Anyone who owns Reed in TE-prem, knows the difference he provides. If my team was a couple years away, then well sure I'd sell.

Numbers were great but strongly aided by garbage time.  I'm very concerned with AC injury.  That isn't going to get better this year.  Could limit his snaps going forward.

Even if he's used in a more limited way (red zone and "chain moving" scenarios), the way that offence is performing currently, he's still a better gamble than most.
