News you need to know
General News (Fri Nov 16): is still fighting through pain in his surgically repaired toes and needs to rebuild strength in his legs. "I feel like I'm starting to come over the curve," he said. "(But) I'm still dealing with the pain. I have scar tissue in both my toes, and I've got to run routes and cut hard and slam my feet every day. I'm starting to learn how to manage it, find what works for me and what takes away the pain."
Week 11: vs Houston Texans
FBG says: Tough matchup. Alex Smith has played the role of game manager this season which has led the Redskins to a 6-3 record on the year. However, the passing game has struggled as it continues to deal with injuries to Jamison Crowder and Chris Thompson who are critical pieces to this passing offense. The Redskins might get Crowder back this week which would be a nice complimentary piece to this offense that has thrown for over 200 yards just once in the last five games. The offensive line continues to be an issue for Washington limiting the amount of time that Smith has to throw the ball as Matt Bitonti has dropped Washington down to the 31st offensive line after being a top-10 offensive line to start the season. The Texans secondary has been one of the better units this season. This is a team that is anchored by Kareem Jackson who is having the best year of his career thus far this season along with Tyrann Mathieu who has done a tremendous job rotating between a slot corner and strong safety. This is a unit that has allowed just one 300 yard passer this season which was a game in which they struggled stopping the Colts as Andrew Luck threw 62 times for 464 yards back in Week 4. With all of the injuries and lack of consistent play for the Redskins this should be a tremendous matchup for the Texans to continue their success against the pass.

Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 10 vs TB (6 / 4 / 51 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed caught four of six targets totaling fifty-one yards. He is still being used closer to the line of scrimmage than usual but he did manage to pick up more yards after the catch. Jordan had potential for a bigger game as Alex targeted him in the endzone but wasn't able to connect. Jordan has struggled to make big plays in the passing game this year as some of his athleticism has been stripped due to injuries.
2018 Week 9 vs ATL (6 / 4 / 34 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed didn't make much of an impact in this game as he tallied four catches for thirty-four yards. Jordan looks as if he has lost his burst due to the mounting injuries and it's affecting productivity. He had six targets in this game but most of his looks are coming close to the line of scrimmage. Jordan isn't the same difference-maker he was in year's past.
2018 Week 8 vs NYG (12 / 7 / 38 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed caught a season high seven receptions but the yardage wasn't impressive. He didn't top forty yards in this game and it was unusual to see Jordan catch so many passes near the line of scrimmage. His typical looks come on seam routes but those looks haven't been dialed up as frequently as year's past. Jordan looks like he may have lost a step but he still remains an integral part of the Washington passing game. Alex did target Jordan in the end zone one time in the first quarter while in the red zone but didn't convert. His twelve targets were a season high and led the team as well.
2018 Week 7 vs DAL (4 / 2 / 43 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed was targeted four times and managed two catches for forty-three yards. Jordan faced bracket coverage periodically but couldn't really take advantage of his 1-on-1 matchups. It seems the injuries have zapped some of his explosion.
2018 Week 6 vs CAR (9 / 5 / 36 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed had one of his busier days catching the ball as he tallied 5 receptions. The yardage was minimal as it totaled thirty-six. Jordan converted on a couple of big first down catches but otherwise had a quiet day.
2018 Week 5 vs NO (2 / 1 / 21 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed was held in check as he only recorded one catch for twenty-one yards. It is unclear if he was being double covered but considering Washington receivers get no special treatment in coverage it is possible. He will need to start showing up bigger if the passing attack is going to flourish.
2018 Week 3 vs GB (7 / 4 / 65 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed was busy in the passing game today as he caught four of his seven targets. He only recorded sixty-five yards but it was clear that Alex wanted to take advantage of his matchup. Jordan found separation in coverage all game and could have had a bigger day if not for a few errant passes. Jordan didn't have any looks while in the redzone but Washington's offense went extremely conservative in the second half as well. Jordan looked spry in this game as he showed plenty shiftiness after the catch on his receptions.
2018 Week 2 vs IND (8 / 6 / 55 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed had another busy game as he grabbed six catches. The yardage was held in check as he only managed fifty-five yards. Too many drives were stalled which didn't allow him to establish a rhythm. If Washington could have stayed on the field Jordan could have had a bigger day. His longest reception went for nineteen yards.
2018 Week 1 vs ARI (5 / 4 / 48 / 1 rec)
Jordan Reed had the most productive day of all Washington receivers as he totaled four receptions for sixty-eight yards with a touchdown. Jordan looks to be healthy now after battling lower body injuries all last season. His touchdown displayed his trademark quickness as he shook loose from his defender to gain separation in coverage. Jordan ran a quick out route then used his run after catch ability to turn up field and pick up five yards to the endzone. Alex and Jordan look to have developed chemistry and is primed to lead Washington's receiving core. If he remains healthy.
Latest NewsRedskins | Jordan Reed still dealing with pain (Fri Nov 16, 11:40 AM) - Washington Redskins TE Jordan Reed (toes) is still fighting through pain in his surgically repaired teos and needs to rebuild strength in his legs. 'I feel like I'm starting to come over the curve,' he said. '(But) I'm still dealing with the pain. I have scar tissue in both my toes, and I've got to run routes and cut hard and slam my feet every day. I'm starting to learn how to manage it, find what works for me and what takes away the pain.' Our View: Reed still hasn't come close to his 2015 form. He's startable in a good matchup against the Texans this week, but isn't an automatic every week start any longer.

CB Quinton Dunbar (shin) also has yet to practice this week but is listed as questionable. WR Jamison Crowder (ankle) and OT Morgan Moses were limited in practice Friday, Nov. 9, and are also listed as questionable. LB Ryan Anderson (knee), RB Kapri Bibbs (shoulder), CB Danny Johnson (forearm), QB Colt McCoy (thumb), S Montae Nicholson (hip), RB Adrian Peterson (shoulder), TE Jordan Reed (back) and CB Greg Stroman (hip) participated fully in practice Friday and have been removed from the injury report. Our View: Washington will be without three starters on the offensive line and a fourth is questionable. This is unlikely to be a strong week for their offense even against arguably the worst defense in the NFC in Tampa.

Our View: After getting targeted 12 times in Week 8, Reed only saw six targets come his way last week. It seems like Alex Smith preferred going after Vernon Davis instead of Reed. With Paul Richardson done for the year, Washington could distribute targets differently this week on the road against the Buccaneers. Reed is still a TE1 for Fantasy GMs.
