TE Jordan Reed - Washington Redskins
|6-3, 236||Born: 7-3-1990||College: Florida||Drafted: Round 3, pick 2013|
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.
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 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 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 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 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 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 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 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 11 vs HOU (11 / 7 / 71 / 1 rec)
Jordan Reed had one of his more productive days on the year as he lead Washington in receptions, targets, and yardage. Alex and Colt both were able to find Jordan as he found some success against the Texans linebackers. Jordan also had a touchdown in this game on a nine-yard reception in the third quarter. There haven't been many favorable matchups for Jordan this season but today he was featured. Washington will need Jordan to continue this production moving forward as the most talents pass catcher they have on the roster.
2018 Week 12 vs DAL (8 / 6 / 75 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed continued his uptick in production as he led Washington in reception yards. He also tied for the team lead in receptions. It seems Colt's mobility has put him in sync with the passing game. Jordan had eight targets on the day and the depth per target was noticeably further down field. He made multiple chunk plays that were lacking earlier in the year. Jordan didn't score a touchdown in this game but his yards after catch has come back to life. If these last two games are a sign that Jordan has regained some of his health that will be a huge plus moving forward.
2018 Week 13 vs PHI (5 / 4 / 21 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed had four catches for twenty-one yards. He has been much more productive as of late but once Colt left the game injured his production suffered. The entire offense had issues once Colt went down and had difficulty getting on track.
2018 Week 14 vs NYG (1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed did not record a catch versus the Giants and exited this game with a foot injury.
2017 Week 1 vs PHI (8 / 5 / 36 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed had a quiet day as he only totaled thirty-six yards on five catches. Jordan is trying to play through a fractured toe and his ability is somewhat hampered. The Eagles forced Kirk to get rid of the ball earlier than he really wanted to which led to off timing. Jordan mainly worked near the line of scrimmage and became more of an outlet rather than a down the seam threat that makes him so dangerous. As he gets healthier he should become the playmaker that Washington needs.
2017 Week 2 vs LAR (6 / 6 / 48 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed was heavily involved in the game plan this week. He tallied six receptions, but most were mainly short completions. His longest reception went for sixteen yards. Jordan often found separation in the middle of the field to keep the chains moving. Jordan left the game with a chest injury so it will be a big loss for Washington if he is unable to suit up next week.
2017 Week 4 vs KC (5 / 3 / 21 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed was ineffective in this game as he only recorded three catches. None of his catches had much impact and he was playing at less than one hundred percent. He hasn't been as dynamic this season but as he gets healthier he should be a bigger factor.
2017 Week 6 vs SF (5 / 4 / 37 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed had another quiet game as he only tallied four catches for thirty-seven yards. He has admitted that he isn't quite back to full healthy and it shows. He isn't stretching the field or playing with the same athleticism after the catch. Until he recovers from his toe injury this might be the norm for Jordan.
2017 Week 7 vs PHI (10 / 8 / 64 / 2 rec)
Jordan Reed had his most productive game of the season as he recorded eight receptions and two touchdowns. Both of his touchdowns came in the red zone as Kirk found him over the middle of the field on slant plays. Many of his catches came in the short pass variety but it was encouraging to see him more involved. Jordan still hasn't stretched the field much this year but he is still reliable at getting open on short routes. It should also be noted that he took advantage of backup linebackers that simply weren't equipped to deal with him.
2017 Week 8 vs DAL (1 / 1 / 5 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed got hurt early in this game and was forced to sit. He pulled a hamstring and was unable to contribute.
2016 Week 1 vs PIT (11 / 7 / 64 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed was often receiving bracket coverage as Pittsburgh's main objective was to not let him get loose. He had seven catches which is tops on the team for this game but Kirk had a difficult time finding him down the seam of the defense. Kirk actually threw his first interception targeting Jordan up the seam but Pittsburgh made sure not to allow the offense those throws. He had the second highest yardage total but no red zone looks for Washington's top receiving threat. The offense had a tough day overall for everyone involved.
2016 Week 2 vs DAL (7 / 5 / 70 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed didn't explode as many expected but his day was still productive. He had five catches with a long of twenty five but the red zone struggles are capping Jordan's impact. Kirk has looked for him several times in the red zone but the connection just isn't there yet. Jordan had three red zone targets in this game and they came up empty. It is encouraging to see that he is clearly the ìgo-toî guy in the scoring area but it would be nice if they got clicking soon.
2016 Week 3 vs NYG (7 / 4 / 56 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed was limited to four catches on the day as teams continue focusing on him as the number one offensive weapon for Washington. Jordan constantly sees double teams and bracket coverage because of his game breaking ability in the open field. As the offense continues to evolve and have others produce consistently Jordan's opportunities will come around. Tight coverage has slowed him down so far so Washington has to get more creative with Jordan's usage.
2016 Week 4 vs CLE (10 / 9 / 73 / 2 rec)
Jordan Reed led all pass catchers in this game with nine catches. This is the type of game many in Washington had been waiting for from him. He often won his matchups down the middle of the field and had room to operate. Cleveland made a concerted effort to limit DeSean Jackson on the outside which opened up things for Jordan. His longest reception went for twenty-six yards as he broke a tackle to spring free down the seam. Jordan's biggest contribution came in the red zone where he was terrific all of last season. Kirk found Jordan for two touchdowns in the red zone. One came on a slant route, and the other was a scramble to get open in the back of the end zone. If he can get back in sync with Kirk in this area Washington will become much more efficient in the red zone moving forward.
2016 Week 5 vs BAL (11 / 8 / 53 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed led the team in catches on the day but was second in yardage. Most of Jordan's production came on short throws as it was difficult to push the ball up the seam. Jordan's biggest play came on a sixteen yard gain but Kirk couldn't get him going. The Ravens paid close attention to Jordan and tried to limit him but showing two defenders most plays but they also kept everything in front of them. They didn't want Jordan getting behind the linebackers so they allowed underneath throws then rallied to the football. Washington was rarely in the red zone this game so Jordan's big play ability in that area wasn't available most of this game.
2016 Week 8 vs CIN (13 / 9 / 99 / 1 rec)
Jordan Reed came back in a big way as he tied for the team high in receptions with nine. He was often taking advantage of the intermediate areas of the field as he constantly sat down in zone coverage to make himself available. They went man a few times and he usually made the Bengals pay. It was most notable when Jordan shook off his defender to catch a short pass to turn up field and score. It was from twenty-three yards out on a comeback route and he immediately turned to get up field with his supreme athleticism. His fourth quarter touchdown tied the game and showed how important he is in Washington's aerial attack.
2016 Week 10 vs MIN (4 / 2 / 41 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed was held to two catches as he was often blanketed by two defenders all game. They weren't going to allow him to constantly make plays as he was basically the most dangerous option on the field (minus DeSean's absence). He couldn't find much space in the passing game.
2016 Week 11 vs GB (6 / 5 / 79 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed had five catches on the day but was unable to find the end zone. He was great after the catch as Kirk found him open several times over the middle of the field. He was able to demonstrate excellent open field running as he constantly eluded several defenders. Jordan's longest catch went for twenty eight yards and the amount of attention he received made it hard to shake free (completely). He lined up all over different formations to get opportunities in the passing game but he was the top threat in Washington's passing attack therefore he was often corralled quickly by several defenders after the catch. Washington wasn't in the red zone much this game as many of their scores were further out. The red zone is where Jordan is most dangerous so there will be more chances for him to score in upcoming games.
2016 Week 12 vs DAL (12 / 10 / 95 / 2 rec)
Jordan Reed had ten catches in this game and had it not been for injury could have been more. Jordan was virtually unstoppable across the middle of the field as he had his way with Dallas defenders. His longest reception went for thirty-three yards as he shook off two defenders after the catch going up field. Jordan had two of Kirk's three touchdown passes in this game. His first came in the third quarter on an out route from five yards away. The second touchdown came late in the fourth as Washington was attempting a comeback. It was good to see Kirk find Jordan in the red zone on both of his touchdowns. They have has some struggles lately getting on the same page in the red zone but this game they seem to recapture that connection. It wasn't hard to find him on the second touchdown as Jordan completely beat his defender in the back of the end zone for the score. Hopefully Jordan isn't suffering a serious shoulder injury because Kirk will need his most trusted target going down the stretch. Jordan's athleticism is difficult to matchup with as he constantly proved while getting open in this game. His ability after the catch is somewhat underrated as well as he can take a short pass and use his strength to drive forward or quick feet to dance past defenders.
2016 Week 14 vs PHI (1 / 1 / 10 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed wasn't fully healthy in this game and he was basically invisible. The combination of low volume passing, sloppy inaccurate passing, and Jordan's inability to fight off coverage due to his shoulder injury caused a disappointing outing. Jordan only recorded one reception for this game. He didn't play his normal amount of plays as well due to his injury so this is clearly an adjustment period for him. He will be playing though pain the rest of the year.
2016 Week 15 vs CAR (1 / 1 / 6 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed had one of his worst games of the year as he only recorded one catch before being ejected. It is clear he is still struggling with a separated shoulder so his production has dipped drastically. He also isn't playing his normal dose of snaps in each of the games he has been back from injury.
2016 Week 17 vs NYG (6 / 5 / 40 / 1 rec)
Jordan Reed had one his more productive games in recent weeks as he seems a little healthier. Jordan totaled five catches and scored the game tying touchdown in the fourth quarter. The offense was inconsistent the entire game but it was clear Kirk wanted to get him more involved. Most of his catches came across the middle of the field and helped to move the chains. There were so many stalled drives he wasn't able to get in a flow but Kirk finally connected with him in the red zone. It was a simple slant where Jordan was able to use his large frame to shield the defender. He also uncharacteristically lost a fumble as Jordan is pretty good at taking care of the football. That is just another illustration of how bad the Washington offense played in this game.
2015 Week 1 vs MIA (11 / 7 / 63 / 1 rec)
Jordan Reed has a definite connection with Kirk Cousins as it was on full display throughout this game. Reed led the team in targets and receptions as they clearly want to make him a focal point in the passing game. Reed has a ton of talent but injuries have kept him off the field often. He was involved early in this game by Cousins using out routes and dig routes to get the ball in his hands. Jordan is a big target with an expansive catch radius which makes him very ìquarterback friendly.î Jordan showed good after the catch ability and elusiveness in the first half as he constantly slithered pass defenders for extra yardage. Cousins showed great trust in his athletic tight end by throwing a jump ball to him in the end zone for a touchdown. Reed high pointed the ball and leaped over his defender showing off his terrific athleticism. As long as he can stay healthy, Reed will be a major contributor this season.
2015 Week 2 vs LA (6 / 6 / 82 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed led the team in catches and targets again as he and Kirk continue to click. Reed was the beneficiary of the short passing game that the Redskins established early and often. He had 6 catches on the day and many times Kirk looked for him on his first read. Jordan's biggest play came late fourth quarter as he took a 12 yard seam route catch up field for 29 yards. That play put the Rams away as they went on to cap the drive off scoring a touchdown. Reed's athleticism has been problematic for teams in the first 2 weeks and Kirk loves to find him over the middle. Kirk is much more comfortable with the short passing game so Reed will continue to be heavily involved.
2015 Week 3 vs NYG (9 / 6 / 96 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed was the most productive pass catcher on the night even though he didn't have the most catches. Kirk continues to find ways to get Jordan the ball as he is a big presence over the middle, but also present matchup problems with his versatility and athleticism. Jordan could have had a two touchdown night if Cousins could have been a little more accurate. Especially on his potential second touchdown as he had his defender beat but Cousins was under too much pressure to put enough strength behind his throw. Jordan's longest catch went for 26 yards but ultimately the passing game was off all night due to Kirk's inaccuracies.
2015 Week 4 vs PHI (8 / 5 / 37 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed had a quiet afternoon as the Eagles were determined not to let him get loose. The Eagles tend to do a good job keeping tight ends in check and today was no different. Two of Reed's 5 catches came on the first possession of the game so that illustrates just how slow the day was for him. Based on all the attention he created, it opened up things for other guys to make plays. His longest catch was 15 yards and he also had a 10 yard pass play that was called back that would have given him 6 on the day. Reed left the game with a concussion and his Week 5 status is in doubt.
2015 Week 7 vs TB (13 / 11 / 72 / 2 rec)
Jordan Reed made his way back from injury in this game and showed his value immediately. Jordan constantly showed that he was a mismatch for the Bucs as Kirk found him for 11 catches on the day. He was mostly missed in the red zone where they like to feature him. Jordan caught two touchdowns in essentially the same fashion as both were slant routes near the goal line. Jordan uses his big 6'5 frame to shield off smaller defenders as one of the guys guarding him was a backup cornerback. Jordan's ability to get separation in the middle of the field gives Kirk a sense of comfort throwing the football. Jordan was the 1st option in the passing game and that will continue because of his unique skill set.
2015 Week 9 vs NE (7 / 3 / 18 / 1 rec)
Jordan Reed was clearly a focal point of the Patriots defensive scheme as they made a conscious effort to take him away. Jordan is Kirk's safety blanket and go-to receiver but the Patriots shadowed him with 2 defenders on most plays. The absence of Jamie Collins on defense was thought to have given Reed a better opportunity to produce but he was still unable to get going. He only had 3 catches and a junk time touchdown but the game was well out of hand by the time he got in the end zone.
2015 Week 10 vs NO (4 / 3 / 29 / 2 rec)
Jordan Reed didn't have a huge day statistically but he continues to be a red zone monster for Washington. Reed's ability to line up all over the formations allows Washington to get him open in a multitude of ways. Both of his touchdowns came in the red zone as one came on a drag across the formation similar to a screen pass and the other was a slant. Reed had 3 total catches but two went for touchdowns which show how dangerous he is in the Washington offense.
2015 Week 11 vs CAR (8 / 6 / 46 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed had the most catches in this game for Washington with 6. His production didn't make significant impact as he was unable to find the end zone in this game. Washington never even got to the red zone which is where Jordan Reed thrives most. The passing game altogether was shut down as it resulted in Jordan's limited day as well.
2015 Week 12 vs NYG (9 / 8 / 98 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed once again lead Washington is targets, catches, and yardage. It is impressive to see how consistent he can get open in the middle of the field when teams know he is the 1st option most times. Kirk found Jordan early and often resulting in first downs and keeping the drive on schedule. Jordan's longest catch went for 26 yards as he constantly found ways to make himself available. The Giants had no linebackers that could keep up with him athletically and their defensive backs aren't good either. Jordan's eight catches were five more than the next leading receiver which shows his importance to Washington's passing game. Jordan would have had a touchdown in the 1st quarter as well if it weren't for a teammate impeding his progress while trying to block.
2015 Week 13 vs DAL (8 / 3 / 33 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed wasn't his usual self in this game as Dallas kept his performance quiet. Reed struggled getting free as consistent as he usually does due to Dallas being able to match up with him. He only had 3 catches and Kirk misfired on a few potential catches but for the most part Dallas did a good job shutting him off as an option in the passing game. His biggest play went for 16 yards but that was nearly half his total yardage for the game.
2015 Week 14 vs CHI (9 / 9 / 120 / 1 rec)
Jordan Reed was extremely productive in this game as he led the passing game for another week. He had 9 catches and a touchdown but could have easily been two touchdowns if he wasn't marked down at the 1 yard line. Jordan constantly made himself available beating line backs in coverage all game. He demonstrated excellent run after catch ability as he routinely shrugged off defenders for extra gains. He is clearly the number 1 option in the passing game as Kirk's comfort level is with the short passing game.
2015 Week 15 vs BUF (7 / 7 / 84 / 2 rec)
Jordan Reed continues his stellar play and dominance as a red zone threat. Jordan's first touchdown in this game was a perfect illustration of how Washington likes to feature him. He was split out wide and Kirk threw a jump ball for him to take advantage of smaller defensive backs. Jordan's red zone prowess is vital for Washington's success rate relating to scoring touchdowns. Jordan's second touchdown was simply him taking full advantage of his size and speed when teams play zone coverage. Kirk found him on a skinny post as the 6'5 target was romping up field in the red zone. He caught 7 passes and continues to be a central piece in Washington's passing game.
2015 Week 16 vs PHI (11 / 9 / 129 / 2 rec)
Jordan Reed completely dominated the Eagles in this game. The Eagles linebackers weren't nearly athletic enough to contain Jordan and the defensive backs weren't physically capable. Jordan had 9 catches which shows how often he found himself open down field. He had 2 touchdowns and both of them were great illustrations of how inferior the Eagles were in slowing him down. His first touchdown he completely lost a linebacker in coverage and the second one he outran the coverage up the seam on a skinny post. He routinely kept the chains moving on third downs and his longest catch went for 28 yards. Kirk has massive trust in Jordan as he often comes down with contested catches and does well high pointing passes over defenders. He has been a matchup problem majority of the year and this game continued that narrative. He has become the top option in the Washington passing game even with DeSean Jackson back. It becomes even tougher to defend him due to the fact that teams have to assign additional coverage to DeSean.
2015 Week 17 vs DAL (4 / 4 / 45 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed had 4 catches for 45 yards in this game as Kirk wanted to keep their good chemistry flowing. Jordan didn't play many snaps but he made the most of his limited playing time. His longest play went for 26 yards and he was done by the end of the first quarter. He will be relied upon heavily next week when the playoffs start. He wasn't needed as much this week with they had things wrapped up in the division.
2014 Week 1 vs HOU (1 / 1 / 4 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed caught his lone target for a four yard gain before exiting early with an apparent hamstring injury. Niles Paul stepped into Reed's role the passing game.
2014 Week 6 vs ARI (11 / 8 / 92 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed returned to the starting lineup for Washington after being hobbled since week one with a hamstring injury. The second year TE proceeded to lead the team in targets and receptions, soaking up short targets on the left side and middle of the field as Cousins's chain mover. Reed lined up all over the field but was not targeted on any deep balls. He showed strong run after the catch moves on a short flare where the TE lined up in the backfield and outmuscled the safety to pick up an extra seven yards and a first down after contact. He caught another huge pass in traffic to keep the chains moving in the fourth quarter with Washington trailing, receiving a bullet from Cousins in the middle of the field between three defenders before getting crushed. Reed was targeted in the endzone on one pass but was badly overthrown by Cousins as he tried to race to the corner.
2014 Week 7 vs TEN (6 / 5 / 54 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed reaffirmed his position as the top TE in Washington's offense, tying Pierre Garcon for the team lead in targets (6) and receptions (5). Reed received four of his six targets in the fourth quarter and was targeted in the end zone on a short pass from McCoy but was unable to haul it in. Reed played a crucial role in Washington's final drive of the game, helping set up a short FG that secured the victory.
2014 Week 8 vs DAL (7 / 7 / 40 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed failed to pick up a crucial first down after catching a short pass and T. Rex arming forward to fall short by less than a yard. He was mostly an ineffective role player during regulation, failing to get much of anything after the catch on his short targets. Reed came alive in OT, making some clutch receptions including an acrobatic pirohuoette toe-tapper for a first down on the left sideline. Reed was instrumental in getting Washington in FG range to put Washington ahead and ultimately win in OT, but his big play potential looks capped with Colt McCoy under center.
2014 Week 9 vs MIN (1 / 1 / 17 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed had his worst performance since week one, catching only one pass on two targets. Reed looked healthy but didn't appear to be a major part of the game plan. He was targeted once in the end zone and forced an Illegal Contact penalty from his defender, but the pass was never close to being completed.
2014 Week 11 vs TB (3 / 2 / 22 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed had a very quiet game catching the ball before also quietly exiting with another hamstring injury. Reed looked good early on lining up outside and outmuscling a corner for a slant pass in the first quarter. But he couldn't get anything going with his QB as Washington struggled to move the ball all game.
2014 Week 13 vs IND (11 / 9 / 123 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed had a monster game serving as Colt McCoy's go-to receiver. His nine receptions on 11 targets for 123 yards were all season highs. McCoy threw to Reed as his primary safety valve, but Reed also lined up outside and in the slot running deeper routes. Reed looked fluid as a receiver and after the catch and didn't seem hampered by his recurring hamstring issues. He was targeted in the end zone twice, but failed to haul in poorly thrown balls from his QB. Reed is still scoreless on the year, but with the extra attention QB Colt McCoy lavishes him with that could quickly change.
2014 Week 14 vs STL (7 / 3 / 25 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed was targeted seven times in Washington's drubbing by the Rams, but was limited to only 25 yards receiving. McCoy attempted to go deep to Reed twice but neither pass was particularly close. Reed did his work on short routes but was blanketed by Rams LBs and safeties all game. He lined up all over the formation and it appears that he is going to continue to be a main target in the passing game going forward.
2014 Week 15 vs NYG (4 / 3 / 13 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed continues to look fully healthy after his string of hamstring injuries earlier in the season, however he turned in a dud of a game as the Washington passing game flowed through the RBs on short checkdowns all afternoon. Reed also failed to find the end zone -- he has no TDs on the year.
2014 Week 16 vs PHI (4 / 2 / 5 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed continued his diminished play with Griffin behind center, catching only two passes. It was his worst output after playing a full game all season. Griffin just doesn't look to the TE position very often, preferring check downs to his RBs and launching bombs deep to the speedy DeSean Jackson.
2014 Week 17 vs DAL (10 / 9 / 70 / 0 rec)
Jordan Reed finished the day tying his season high with nine receptions and was RG3's most reliable receiving target. Reed showed off his great hands throughout the game, catching multiple hard slants from RG3 to keep the chains moving. Reed served as Griffin's primary dump off and short target receiver, especially as Washington moved into catch-up mode in the second half. Reed had a touchdown taken off the board when his helmet was removed near the goal line as he walked in for a score, but by rule the play had to stop. In a more consistent offense, Reed could be a star.
2013 Week 1 vs PHI (6 / 5 / 38 / 0 rec)
The rookie from Florida received more targets than the veteran Fred Davis, and Robert Griffin seemed to lean on him when the Philadelphia front seven broke down the Redskins' pocket. In his NFL debut, Reed got the Redskins three first downs and looked comfortable seeking out the soft spots in the Eagles' defense. In a run-heavy offense that will inevitably trot out more two tight end sets than most teams, Reed looked as able as the veteran Fred Davis, if not more so. Redskins fans shoudl applaud what appears to be savvy drafting by the home team, and fantasy owners should consider Reed as a handcuff to Davis if benches are deep enough.
2013 Week 2 vs GB (3 / 3 / 18 / 1 rec)
Now the Redskins' tight end targets leader, Reed turned in a serviceable game against the Packers, averaging six yards per catch. The rookie third-rounder ran a tight drag route across the end zone to snag a three-yard score early in the fourth quarter. Robert Griffin III came back to Reed later in the fourth quarter on a failed two-point conversion attempt. At this point, Griffin appears to trust Reed as the primary pass-catching tight end for the Redskins, despite Fred Davis' years of experience and seemingly good health.
2013 Week 3 vs DET (6 / 5 / 50 / 0 rec)
Answering the call with Fred Davis sustaining an ankle injury, Reed split pass-catching duties with Logan Paulsen against the Lions. Robert Griffin III looked to Reed in the short and middle of the field on drag, crossing, and out routes, and Reed's steady hands helped the Redskins to advance the ball down the field while on offense. Reed is certainly the Redskins' most mobile and athletic tight end, though the target counts indicate that TE1 is a timeshare position for the Redskins at the moment. Postgame reports indicated Reed sustained a quad contusion after the game, so it stands to reason Logan Paulsen would be the team's primary pass-catching tight end in Reed's absence.
2013 Week 6 vs DAL (6 / 4 / 58 / 0 rec)
After weeks of the Redskins playing will-they or won't-they with their tight ends, the team committed firmly to using Jordan Reed as its premier pass-catching tight end. Reed responded quite positively, having his best day as a professional. The rookie repeatedly made Dallas defensive backs defense look foolish, most notably on a "pop" pass from Griffin that Reed took up the seam for a twenty-nine yard gain. Reed needs to improve his blocking skills to become a true TE1, but his skills and route-running as a receiver are progressing well. When Alfred Morris is in backfield, Reed figures to get a healthy amount of targets in the short passing game for the Redskins.
2013 Week 7 vs CHI (9 / 9 / 134 / 1 rec)
Reed broke out in a big way against a decimated Bears secondary. Routinely matched up against fellow Florida Gator and Bears linebacker Jon Bostic, Reed roasted Bostic time and again out of the slot. While Reed lacks the speed of Vernon Davis or the size of Jimmy Graham, he moves like an oversized wide-receiver and looked polished in his route-running against the Bears. Lance Briggs' exiting the game due to a shoulder injury only helped Reed's day. The rookie finished with career highs in targets, receptions, and receiving yards. Intent on stopping the run, Chicago left Reed uncovered in the middle of the field time and again, and Robert Griffin III was able to zip passes to Reed through tight windows. Reed caught his second career touchdown on the Redskins' seventh offensive series. Facing third and goal, Reed split wide to the right and was actually uncovered before Bears safety Chris Conte slid over to provide assistance. Nevertheless, Robert Griffin III exploited the Bears' lack of preparedness and threw a back shoulder fade to Reed, who climbed the ladder against Conte and exhibited superb body control in completing the catch for the score.
2013 Week 8 vs DEN (14 / 8 / 90 / 0 rec)
Following a breakout game against the Bears, Reed seemed destined for a bigger role in the Redskins' mediocre air attack. Few would have guessed Robert Griffin III would target the former Gator a whopping fourteen times and that Reed would lead the Redskins in receiving in Denver. Working primarily underneath the Denver secondary, Reed caught a healthy amount of short passes from Robert Griffin III and showcased decent mobility after the catch. Reed does not have blazing speed, but he is able to shake off linebackers with his route-running ability. Reed seems safely ensconced as the Redskins' second option in the passing game for now, given how steady his hands appear. Reed did leave the field shaken up, but returned after a couple of plays.
2013 Week 9 vs SD (5 / 4 / 37 / 0 rec, 1 / 18 / 0 rush)
Reed recorded his first carry of his NFL career, taking a read-option pitch from Robert Griffin III eighteen yards down the field in the first quarter. Frankly, Reed looked like a bit of a gazelle in the open field, and has a deceptive amount of speed, not to mention a smooth gait, for a big man. Through the air, he carried less of a load than in weeks past, as Robert Griffin III fed Pierre Garcon and the Washington ground game ate up a generous Chargers defense. The evidence that the Redskins involved Reed in the read-option is certainly encouraging for future games and might signal a slight uptick in his touch count. It is certainly refreshing to see the Redskins draft, develop, and elevate a talented pass-catcher in an offense in need of one.
2013 Week 10 vs MIN (9 / 6 / 62 / 1 rec)
Reed turned in a solid stat line while being peppered with targets from Robert Griffin III. Running similar routes to the Redskins' WR1 Pierre Garcon, Reed caught passes on post routes and quick screens with mixed results. The rookie's biggest - and smartest - play came in the second quarter, when he bit off a drag route in the red zone. Stopping short, Reed caught a quick pas from Robert Griffin III and carried two Vikings defenders into the end zone for his third score of 2013. Reed has been something of a godsend for a team desperate for another playmaker on offense, and should continue to see single coverage out of the slot as defenses focus on preventing the Redskins from achieving big gains on the ground.
2013 Week 11 vs PHI (1 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)
Reed caught one pass for twelve yards before leaving the contest to be evaluated for a concussion.
