Joe Reed
23-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2020 Fantasy Outlook
A fifth-round pick out of Virginia, Reed enters his rookie campaign as a darkhorse for the No. 3 job behind Keenan Allen and Mike Williams. The team jettisoned Travis Benjamin and Geremy Davis in the offseason, leaving just 2017 undrafted free agent Andre Patton as the only member of the Chargers receiving corps, other than the two aforementioned starters, to have at least a year or more in the team's system. Reed has the requisite speed to play on the outside opposite Williams, and could also act as a slot option in place of Allen during the rare times the Pro Bowler isn't soaking up those snaps.

Relevant only as kick returner

January 8, 2021
Reed compiled 435 kick-return yards across 11 games during his rookie season. The 23-year-old saw a total of just 27 offensive snaps.
ANALYSIS
The 2020 fifth-round pick had an opportunity to crack the starting lineup during an abbreviated offseason but instead saw second-year speedster Jalen Guyton jump over him for the No. 3 wide-receiver role to begin the year, cratering any sort of positive fantasy momentum for Reed. Reed's decent numbers as a kick returner likely will keep him off the roster bubble entering training camp next season, but even a drastic change in offensive philosophy might not be enough for Reed to leapfrog Guyton, and a number of other names, for the No. 3 role.
