2019 Fantasy Outlook
The brother of Carolina's Eric, Justin is a hyper-athletic CB/S tweener with classic free safety traits rather than the big, strong look his brother provides. The younger Reid fell to the third round last year and already looks like a steal, as he emerged as a starter in October last season after outplaying Houston's incumbents in September. He's likely to see about 1,000 snaps and therefore improve on last year's tackle numbers, while his 10 passes defended hint at even more interception upside than his three from last year.

Returns healthy
SHouston Texans
July 11, 2019
Reid (wrist) participated in Houston's offseason program, Drew Dougherty of the team's official website reports.
ANALYSIS
Reid suffered a rib injury during a playoff loss to the Colts and had wrist surgery shortly thereafter. He seems to be back at full strength, now locked in as a starting safety after he had 88 tackles (70 solo), 10 passes defensed and three interceptions in 16 games (12 starts) during his rookie season. Reid will line up next to Tashaun Gipson, who averaged just 53 tackles (43.7 solo) as a 16-game starter in Jacksonville each of the past three seasons.
