  • Jayden Reed Nets 55 Yards In Week 4 Loss

    Headshot for Jayden Reed

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed caught three of five targets for 55 yards during the team's 34-20 loss to the Detroit Lions. The rookie has come back to earth over the past two weeks after nabbing two touchdowns in Week 2. However, he has remained involved enough to warrant stashing him with the upcoming schedule as a break glass in case of emergency flex. Tight end Luke Musgrave (concussion) exited this game early, so it's possible that led to more targets for Reed. Next week's matchup against Las Vegas is juicy, making Reed a startable asset for fantasy managers in need.

  • Jayden Reed May Lose Snaps In Week 4

    Headshot for Jayden Reed

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed will face the division-rival Detroit Lions on Thursday night. While the rookie has played the No. 2 wide receiver role to open the season due to Christian Watson (hamstring) missing time, that run could come to an end Thursday night. Watson is listed as questionable for the game, but all signs point to the second-year receiver making his 2023 debut. This would push Reed to play primarily as a slot receiver and be often left off the field in two wide receiver sets. Averaging just over six targets per game so far, it will be interesting to see how quarterback Jordan Love distributes the ball with Watson active. Couple all of this with a tough matchup against a Detroit defense that allows the 12th-fewest fantasy points per game to receivers, and it would be better to bench Reed in Week 4 in favor of a better option.

  • Christian Watson Is Questionable For TNF

    Headshot for Romeo Doubs

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Christian Watson (hamstring) is being listed as questionable for Thursday night's matchup against the Detroit Lions. The second-year wideout has yet to play in 2023 as he's been dealing with a hamstring injury since late August. He's been listed as questionable the last two weeks and was unable to play so fantasy managers shouldn't have him in their lineups until they know for certain he is active. Wide receivers Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed would continue to soak up the wide receiver targets if Watson were to miss his fourth straight game on Thursday.

  • Jayden Reed Puts Up 63 Yards In Week 3

    Headshot for Jayden Reed

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed caught three of seven targets for 63 yards during the team's 18-17 win over the New Orleans Saints. After a two-touchdown performance last week, the rookie continued to show how explosive he can be, with an average of 21 yards per reception Sunday. Romeo Doubs led the way for the Packers receiver corps this week, and tight end Luke Musgrave saw eight targets as well, showing that Reed could struggle to remain consistent once Christian Watson (hamstring) and Aaron Jones (hamstring) return. With that said, the 23-year-old should continue to have a stranglehold on the slot position and will be a depth option for fantasy managers with an easier upcoming schedule. Reed will be a flex option in Week 4 against Detroit if Watson misses another week.

  • Jayden Reed A Risky Flex Option In Week 3

    Headshot for Jayden Reed

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed will face the New Orleans Saints in Week 3. The rookie had a breakout performance last week, leading the team in targets and catching two touchdowns against Atlanta. However, the potential return of Christian Watson (hamstring) could cause Reed's target share to come down a bit. The matchup against New Orleans doesn't give fantasy managers much confidence in a repeat performance, either. The Saints have allowed the sixth-fewest fantasy points per game to the wide receiver position in 2023 and have not allowed one to score through two weeks. The 23-year-old can be used as a flex option if you are desperate, but it would be best to look for a different option with a better matchup in Week 3.

  • Jayden Reed Posts Two Touchdowns In Losing Effort

    Headshot for Jordan Love

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed caught 4-of-8 targets for 37 yards and two touchdowns during the team's 25-24 loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The rookie made the most of his increased opportunity with Christian Watson (hamstring) out for the second week in a row and was able to account for two of quarterback Jordan Love's three touchdowns thrown. Reed capped off the team's first scoring drive with a nine-yard touchdown on a touch pass that he took around the corner past multiple defenders. The 23-year-old showed off his speed on the play and then was able to find the end zone again on a 10-yard strike at the end of the third quarter. Even when Watson returns, Reed has earned starting reps and will be a solid waiver pickup heading into Week 3. He will be a potential deep league flex option next week against the New Orleans Saints.

  • Christian Watson Anticipated To Miss Another Game

    Headshot for Romeo Doubs

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Christian Watson (hamstring) isn't expected to play in Sunday's meeting with Atlanta. The 24-year-old is burdened by a hamstring issue and wasn't available for the regular-season opener against the Chicago Bears. He did practice somewhat during the week, so there's a chance he could be ready in Week 3 against the visiting New Orleans Saints. But for now, Romeo Doubs (hamstring) is anticipated to remain Jordan Love's primary target, meaning he's a must-start in all formats. At the same time, Luke Musgrave and Jayden Reed each warrant flex consideration in deeper fantasy setups.

  • Jayden Reed - Week 2 Outlook for Fantasy Football

    Headshot for Jayden Reed

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed will go on the road to take on the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2. The rookie had a chance to shine last week with the absence of Christian Watson (hamstring) and Romeo Doubs being limited, but he managed to haul in just two of his five targets. He showed off some big play ability but has yet to prove to fantasy managers that he should be considered a worthy stash on the bench. Watson could return to the field this week in a limited fashion, potentially eating into Reed's snap share in two wide receiver sets. Even in a decent matchup against the Falcons, it would be best to leave the 23-year-old on your bench or on the waiver wire this weekend.

  • Jayden Reed Gains 46 Total Yards In NFL Debut

    Headshot for Jayden Reed

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed caught 2-of-5 targets for 48 yards and lost two yards on his lone carry during the team's 38-20 victory over the Chicago Bears. The rookie came into the game with an increased role due to the absence of Christian Watson (hamstring) and ended up tying with Romeo Doubs for the team lead in targets Sunday. Reed showed off some of his explosiveness on a 30-yard reception but sometimes struggled to get open. Watson's status for Week 2 is up in the air at this point. However, if he misses, the rookie will be in line to see a solid target share against a beatable Atlanta secondary. Reed will have flex value in deep leagues next week.

  • Jayden Reed Should See Increased Usage In Week 1

    Headshot for Jayden Reed

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed will travel to Chicago to take on the Bears in the season opener this Sunday. The rookie will make his NFL debut as a part of the starting receiver corps, with Christian Watson (hamstring) being ruled out on Friday. Romeo Doubs (hamstring) is also questionable for the plus matchup, making way for Reed to have a high snap share for his first game as a pro. The second-round NFL draft pick flashed at times this past preseason and is a sneaky fantasy option in 14-16 team leagues against Chicago. The Bears ranked 11th in fantasy points allowed per game to opposing wideouts in 2022, allowing long completions on the regular. Reed will look to make an impact early in his career and is a name to watch this weekend before the first set of waivers run in leagues next week.

  • Romeo Doubs Held Out Of Practice This Week

    Headshot for Romeo Doubs

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Romeo Doubs (hamstring) missed practice this week with a hamstring issue but was able to get in some sprints off to the side, per beat writer Rob Demovsky. Doubs' practice status has been a concern this week as he either hasn't practiced at all or has not participated in team activities. It's encouraging to see him get some individual drills going off to the side but his status for Week 1 is still unclear. The second-year wideout told reporters that "everything's fine. I'll leave those answers up to coach, however, just taking everything day by day," when he was asked about his availability. It sounds like we won't know more until the official injury report is released later next week as head coach Matt LaFleur hasn't been very forthcoming to the media in regards to Doubs' health either. If he is unable to suit up against the Bears in Week 1 then expect rookie wideout Jayden Reed and tight end Luke Musgrave to see more looks from quarterback Jordan Love.

  • Jayden Reed Reels In 19-Yard Touchdown Saturday

    Headshot for Jayden Reed

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed caught 1-of-2 targets for a 19-yard touchdown during the team's 21-17 preseason loss to the New England Patriots. It is the second week in a row that the rookie has played with the first-team offense, and he came through with an impressive touchdown grab on a crossing route in tight coverage. With the ball being spread around the offense under new starting quarterback Jordon Love, it will be tough for most of Green Bay's receivers to be consistent for fantasy purposes in 2023. However, if their success continues, the first-team offense has performed above expectations so far and could support multiple fantasy-relevant assets in the passing game. Reed is a solid flier you can take with one of your last picks in fantasy drafts over the next few weeks.

  • Jayden Reed Back At Practice Thursday

    Headshot for Jayden Reed

    Green Bay Packers rookie wide receiver Jayden Reed left Wednesday's practice early after a hard fall to the ground, but he's already back in action on Thursday. That said, there should be no concern about his status for now. Reed is likely to start in the slot right away after being selected in the second round of the 2023 NFL Draft. With Jordan Love adjusting to being a starter, he could look for Reed to be his safety blanket in the shallow and intermediate parts of the field. While expectations for most rookies should be tempered, Reed could be worth a late-round dart throw in fantasy football drafts.

  • Jayden Reed Gets First Team Reps In Preseason Opener

    Headshot for Jayden Reed

    Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed nabbed both his targets and gained 20 yards during the team's 36-19 preseason victory over the Cincinnati Bengals. The second-round pick was on the field with the first-team offense, catching his lone target from starting quarterback Jordan Love for a 5-yard gain on the opening play of the second offensive drive. Reed was given more snaps with the second-team offense, gaining an additional 15 yards before his night came to an end. It is a great sign to see the rookie on the field with starters Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs, but he will likely be the 5th read for Love after the likes of Watson, Doubs, Aaron Jones, and rookie tight end Luke Musgrave, who tied for the team lead in targets with the starting offense Friday. We should see more of Reed this upcoming Saturday night when the Packers take on the New England Patriots.
