At #9 is Washington Redskins tight end Jordan Reed. In his rookie season, Reed almost hit the 500 yard mark. And he wasn’t even the team’s starter.

But this season marks a new era in Washington. Asides from the changes in the coaching staff, there will be a change at tight end. It’s Reed’s turn to start, and he has what it takes to produce.

Similarly to Rudolph, Reed had a little injury trouble too. In Week 11, he suffered a concussion, which would cause him to miss the rest of the season.

Unfortunately for Reed, he isn’t the biggest passing option in Washington. Pierre Garçon and former Eagle superstar DeSean Jackson will be the main options in the passing game for quarterback Robert Griffin III.

Although Reed won’t get many receptions, look for him to get his receptions where they count the most: the end-zone. While Jackson and Garçon are deep-pass threats, Reed’s big body makes him the ideal touchdown target.
