Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) was placed on the Physically Unable to Perform list because of significant toe soreness, according to a team spokesperson. He has had a special orthotic placed in his shoe and hinted at a fracture in his foot.
Reed was only healthy for ten weeks in 2016 and he had three games of at least 24.9 points in PPR leagues. No other tight end had more than one. Of course, his durability issues are a reason he isn't going as the #1 tight end off of the board, but that can be accounted for in best ball drafts by taking another TE1 (who can bolster your flex scoring) or two TE2 types.

Summary

Jordan Reed's talents were never in question, but a combination of concussions and other nagging injuries -- not to mention questions at the quarterback position -- left him as a fringe fantasy contributor through two seasons. That all changed in 2015 as Reed emerged as one of the NFL's premier tight ends. Reed caught 87 receptions for 952 yards (10.9 per catch) and 11 touchdowns and earned a $50 million ($22mm guaranteed) extension in the process. Last year, Reed maintained his elite level of play but was bitten -- once again -- by injuries. He only played 12 games (66 receptions for 686 yards and 6 touchdowns), finishing 9th among tight ends in fantasy points. In the last two seasons combined, Reed's 10.2 fantasy points per game ranks 2nd to Rob Gronkowsi. When he's on the field, he's as good as it gets. Fantasy owners need to weigh the risks and realities of his injury history against elite performance when he's healthy. The downside of drafting Reed is the need to follow the pick up with another reasonably high upside tight end. (August 12)

Redskins | Jordan Reed back at practice soon? (Thu Aug 17, 04:33 PM) - Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) said he's hoping to return to practice either Monday, Aug. 21, or Tuesday, Aug. 22. Reed added that the orthotics he's been wearing have helped his toe injury.

Our View: We're hoping he comes back soon as well, but there's no rush. He's the top tight end option there and it's not like he's new to the playbook. On the other hand, Reed was only healthy for ten weeks in 2016 and has yet to play a full season. When on the field he is outstanding—you just have to know there are weeks he will not be there. Reed is currently the 4th tight end going off the board in drafts, around the fifth round or so at an overall ADP of 46.

Redskins | Jordan Reed had a fracture (Mon Aug 14, 10:39 AM) - Updating previous reports, Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) disclosed that he had a fracture in his toe Sunday, Aug. 13. 'It's the cleats more than anything,' Reed said. 'The cleats prior to this were more narrow and pressing on the bone that I had the fracture in. These cleats are wider and the orthotics are softer so I don't feel it.'

Our View: Reed is trying new orthodics to help his toe issue. He believes that he'll return to action next week and that he could even play in one of the team's remaining preseason games. Reed is a stud tight end for fantasy owners, but make sure to snare a good backup at the position if you select him.

Redskins | Jordan Reed expects to return soon (Sun Aug 13, 06:55 PM) - Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) said his new cleats and orthotics have made a difference with his sprained big toe.

Our View: Everyone already knows that if Reed is healthy then you want him on your fantasy team..and in your starting lineup every week. It's the staying healthy part of things he's struggled with as a pro. Reed is still on the Physically Unable to Perform list but expects to start practicing soon.

Redskins | Jordan Reed to be reevaluated soon (Sat Aug 12, 04:07 PM) - Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) will be reevaluated after the preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, according to head coach Jay Gruden.

Our View: Reed is wearing a special insert in his shoe to help with the problem. We'll see if that helps him or makes no difference. Reed can be a fantasy force if healthy, but he makes for a risky fantasy pick with his long injury history.

Redskins | Jordan Reed to try out new footwear (Sat Aug 12, 01:55 PM) - Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toe) received special orthotics for his left cleat and will test it out for the next couple days, according to head coach Jay Gruden, who added the team will take a look at how Reed is doing after the team's next preseason game against the Green Bay Packers on Saturday, Aug. 19.

Our View: Magic shoes worked for Forrest Gump, so we'll see if this insert will help Reed play better. If healthy, Reed is a top-3 fantasy tight end...but it's that whole thing about staying healthy that he struggles with. Monitor his progress through the rest of the preseason.
