Reed finished the afternoon with four catches for 37 yards on five targets, as quarterback Robert Griffin III was able to instead find Pierre Garcon regularly for huge chunks of yardage versus a Chargers secondary that surrendered 172 yards to him. Reed remained on the field for the majority of the team's snaps and lined up in several different positions, but it did not culminate in a big yardage total like in previous weeks.
Fantasy Spin: If anything, this is an encouraging performance for Reed's fantasy owners despite the quiet stat sheet. Reed seems to be getting involved in new ways each week, as Redskins coaches dialed-up a triple option play with Reed receiving the pitch. That resulted in an 18-yard gain, and also showed that the Redskins brass is working to find ways to get the ball into their athletic tight end's hands while the passing game looks for its identity.
