2024 Fantasy Outlook
Doubts about Reed's fantasy value ahead of his second pro season mostly center around uncertainty regarding volume. His rookie year left no doubt that the 50th overall pick is a high-quality player, with Reed tallying 793 receiving yards, 119 rushing yards and 10 total TDs on only 578 snaps (52.7 percent of the team total). He's about average in terms of size (5-11, 187) and speed (4.45 40), but his agility and route-running stood out almost immediately, making him more of a big-play threat than other slot-based WRs. Most of Reed's stats look like those of a perimeter target -- e.g. 10.1 aDOT, 12.4 YPR, 8.4 YPT -- even though he was lined up outside just 28 percent of the time. Production like his normally would demand a big role increase heading into Year 2, and while that's certainly possible, it isn't a given. 2022 second-round pick Christian Watson has 14 TDs in 23 NFL games, and 2022 fourth-rounder Romeo Doubs had 234 receiving yards in Green Bay's two playoff appearances (plus a team-high 96 targets during the regular season). On top of that, 2023 fifth-round pick Dontayvion Wicks had 581 yards on 58 targets last season, giving the Packers a fourth promising WR on a rookie contract. Even the tight ends could be a problem, with 2023 draft picks Luke Musgrave (second round) and Tucker Kraft (third round) both topping 350 yards last year and possibly inspiring the Packers to make two-TE sets a regular feature moving forward. It's an awful lot of competition for snaps and targets, even with QB Jordan Love and HC Matt LaFleur leading the charge for what could be one of the NFL's better offenses. Read Past Outlooks

July 24, 2024
Reed (toe) will be activated from the non-football injury list and practice in a limited capacity Wednesday, Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports.
ANALYSIS
Reed was on the NFI list for just a couple days, after suffering a seemingly minor injury during his youth camp earlier this summer. He finished his 2023 rookie season as the team leader in catches (64), receiving yards (793), yards from scrimmage (912) and total touchdowns (10), and his success working out of the slot hints at role security even though the Packers have a deep group of pass catchers that also includes WRs Romeo Doubs, Christian Watson, Dontayvion Wicks and Bo Melton. It is possible that depth impacts Reed's target volume as well as his playing time in two-wide formations, but there's no doubt he'll be a regular presence and priority when the Packers have three WRs on the field.

2023 Fantasy Outlook
The Packers drafted Reed 50th overall this spring after a college career that saw him go for 797 yards as a freshman at Western Michigan and 2,069 yards the following three seasons at Michigan State. He had his best year as a junior with 1,026 yards and 10 TDs, then dropped to 636 yards and five TDs last season while battling foot, hip and back injuries. Reed has a chance at a key role early in his career, joining the youngest WR room in the league with his main competition for playing time being second-year pros Christian Watson and Romeo Doubs. The Packers also have 2023 fifth-rounder Dontayvion Wicks and 2022 seventh-rounder Samori Toure, while the roster doesn't have any older players with NFL starting experience to help new QB Jordan Love.

Latest Fantasy Rumors
Breakout '24 season coming?
WRGreen Bay Packers
June 21, 2024
Reed could be in line for big season-over-season improvement in his numbers during the 2024 campaign, Bucky Brooks of NFL.com suggests.
ANALYSIS
Reed already put together a rock-solid rookie season that consisted of 64 receptions, 793 receiving yards and eight touchdowns across 16 regular-season games before adding four catches for 35 yards and another score in the divisional-round loss to the 49ers. However, Brooks sees Reed taking the next step in 2024, arguing the Packers' air attack doesn't have a true No. 1 receiver and noting the second-year wideout boasts polished route-running skills and is a legitimate vertical threat.
