Joe Reed

25-Year-Old Wide ReceiverWR
2022 Fantasy Outlook
Reed was drafted by the Chargers in the fifth-round of the 2020 NFL Draft, but he's failed to see much playing time during his stint in Los Angeles. Primarily the team's kick returner when healthy, Reed is expected to face heavy competition for the role from newcomer DeAndre Carter who signed with the Chargers this offseason and who is also a more well-rounded receiver at this juncture in their respective careers.

The Bears signed Reed to a reserve/future contract Thursday.
Reed has spent the past three seasons with the Chargers, though he did not appear in a game over the past two seasons while residing on the team's practice squad. The 6-foot, 224-pound wideout will now look to carve out a role in a Bears receiving corps that lacked any significant contributors this regular season.

Past Fantasy Outlooks
A 2020 fifth-round pick, Reed ultimately never rebounded from a poor training camp, earning just 27 offensive snaps in a lost rookie season. While he did emerge as a capable returner, the emergence of Jalen Guyton and Tyron Johnson pushed the 23-year-old down the depth chart and it's hard to imagine Reed leaping over the aforementioned duo, plus 2021 third-round pick Josh Palmer, in a crowded wide receiving corps.
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.
