|Jordan Reed finished the season as No.2 ranked fantasy tight end (87-952-11) even though he missed two games. Injuries have always been an issue for the explosive Reed. He’s missed 14 games in his first three seasons in the league and he’s already missed the team’s minicamp after suffering an ankle injury this pre-season. At 6’2” 237, he’s the classic mismatch new breed of tight end, being too big and strong for safeties and too fast for linebackers to cover. Despite his injury history, which included multiple concussions, the team rewarded him with a five-year $46.5 million extension which includes $22 million in guaranteed money. While risky, his playoff performance against the Packers, catching 9 balls for 120 yards and a score shows how valuable he is to this offense and Kirk Cousins’ development. If he stays healthy, he should continue his dominance on the field and in the fantasy rankings for the tight end position. The risk-adverse may not want to pay the price tag on draft day despite the tangible upside.

FFToday's Take: Master is a trusted source for the Washington Post and it looks like Reed is a scratch for this week. TE Vernon Davis and WR Pierre Garcon will likely pick up more targets.

Status for Week 6 and beyond up in the air

|Redskins TE Jordan Reed was officially diagnosed with a concussion. He’s in the protocol. Team spent since Tuesday evaluating. (Ian Rapoport on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: It's a major blow to the Washington offense and obviously a concern for Reed's long-term health, as he has sustained at least six documented concussions since his college days. For fantasy purposes, he should be considered a long shot for this week and highly questionable for the next 2-3 weeks. Vernon Davis appears to be the most likely replacement for him, but Reed's absence should to more targets for DeSean Jackson, Pierre Garcon and Jamison Crowder.

Missed practice Wednesday

|Jordan Reed's promising season has taken an ominous turn.
The Redskins tight end is being evaluated for a concussion after experiencing symptoms during Tuesday's workout, per the team's official Twitter account. Reed missed Wednesday's practice and looms as a question mark for Sunday's showdown with the Eagles. (NFL.com)|
FFToday's Take: Reed has a long history with concussions, suffering five from 2011 to 2015. If Reed is unable to play, Vernon Davis would take his starting spot in the lineup.
