Reed said he thought the Texans were "outplayed and outcoached" in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals, Comcast SportsNet Houston reports.

Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)

Reed, who has been relegated to the dime package and played just 12 snaps against the Cardinals, may be speaking out of frustration or he may be echoing sentiments inside the locker room. The Texans, 2-7 and losers of seven straight, had entered the season with Super Bowl aspirations and Reed was signed to help deliver on that goal. A splintered locker room would not surprise us at this point.
Reed played just 12 of 66 defensive snaps in Sunday's 27-24 loss to Arizona, the Houston Chronicle reports.

RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Ed Reed.

2013

Reed leaves the Super Bowl Champion Ravens for another Super Bowl contender in the Texans. He will step in and start at free safety for a defense on the verge of becoming a shut-down defense.

2012

Reed is still a good player, but he's a true free safety who doesn't make many tackles, so there isn't much IDP value here in most formats.

2011

Like Troy Polamalu, Reed is both an injury worry and a surprisingly low tackle producer. For leagues that reward tackles, find someone else. In leagues that emphasize interceptions, on the other hand, Reed is perhaps a top target. He hasn't hit the 60-tackle mark since 2004, but his 27 interceptions (including three touchdown returns) in his last 54 games is a remarkable number.

2010

Reed has been one of the league's best defenders throughout his career, as well as a great fantasy option for IDP leagues. However, his number fell somewhat last season (50 tackles and three interceptions in 12 games) largely due to a litany of injuries. Now hip reconstruction surgery in April threatens to keep him out for the start of the season. He can still be phenomenal fantasy option provided he stays healthy, but that's a big if at this point.

2009

Eight years into his NFL career, and there are still few better than Reed at being in the right place at the right time. Last season, he led the league with nine interceptions, adding two fumble recoveries along with three defensive touchdowns. He may be aging, but his experience and smarts keep him a step ahead of the rest of the game.

2008

Reed continues to excel as one of the best safeties in the NFL. He averages five interceptions a season for his career and should be in line to fall right around that number again in 2008.

2007

After missing six games with a bad ankle injury in 2005, Reed was back in full effect in 2006. His numbers (59 tackles, five picks) were down due to the emergence of fellow safety Dawan Landry as well as some nagging minor injuries, but look for the same old controlled chaos of Ed Reed.

2006

Reed missed six games last year to a high ankle sprain, but that wasn’t the extent of his owners’ disappointment. When he did play, Reed had only game with more than five fantasy points, and that came via two solo tackles and his lone pick in Week 17, way too late to help any fantasy teams. Because he played the last five games of the season, rather than calling it quits until next year, we at least don’t have to worry through an offseason of wondering how well he’ll recover. But his lack of productivity when he returned casts doubt on how positively to project him. In 16 games, Reed has been just about a mortal lock to get 60 or more solo tackles (he dipped to 59 in 2003) and has shown special abilities in making interceptions. Even with last year’s down year, he’s averaged 5.5 picks per season in his four pro years, which is a high number for any defensive back, not to mention a strong safety, who spends much time in run support. Check on him in camp, because the lack of good games last year is cause for concern, but if he’s healthy, there are few with as high a point ceiling.

2005

Reed had 358 yards off interceptions last year, including one run back an NFL-record 106 yards for a touchdown. Show us a receiver that efficient with nine catches, and we’ll see you in Canton. But more importantly, since pick return yards don’t count in most leagues, Reed has shown an amazing ability to intercept passes, averaging an elite seven picks per season in his three years in the league. His typical low 60s solo tackle numbers are a fine base off which to build his exceptional playmaking, and he’s improved with his week-to-week consistency, turning in at least three fantasy points in every game last year. When it comes to ball hawks, it doesn’t get any better.

2004

Some stat sheets hide a secret about Reed. We can all be happy about him averaging 65 solo tackles, a sack, six picks and an impressive13.5 passes defended in his two years in the NFL. What you don't always see are his two blocked kicks per year and the two touchdowns he scored off of them in 2003. That's a lot of fantasy points to leave in between the columns. He is more likely than the other elite backs to drop in a one- or two-point stinker on a given week, however.

2003

Reed had 67 solo tackles, five interceptions and a sack a year ago and should continue to get his hands on hurried passes thrown by quarterbacks under fire from both Peter Boulware and rookie Terrell Suggs. A healthy Ray Lewis may cut into his tackles a bit, however.
