Reed was held out of minicamp on Tuesday to rest his sprained ankle, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports.

EDGE Analysis

Reed is also expected to sit out of practice on Wednesday as the Redskins plan to proceed with caution at this point in the offseason. He's proven to be a bit injury-prone over the past few seasons, but this ankle issue shouldn't linger into training camp later this summer.

Reed was signed to a five-year, $50 million contract extension with the Redskins on Thursday, ESPN's Adam Schefter reports.

EDGE Analysis

The 25-year-old tight end enjoyed a massive breakout season in 2015 87 grabs for 952 yards and his 11 touchdowns were tied with Rob Gronkowski for seventh-most in the NFL. With Reed locked in for the next five years, the Redskins will have one of the best young tight ends in the entire league at their disposal for his prime years. Reed is clearly one of quarterback Kirk Cousins' favorite targets and that figures to continue into the 2016 campaign and beyond.

Reed plucked nine of 12 targets out of the air for 120 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to Green Bay.

EDGE Analysis

Reed stole a possible Green Bay interception with a one-handed catch late in the first quarter and then split the seam for a touchdown later on that same drive. Reed was Washington's most consistent performer all season, leading the team in every major receiving category, and shone brightest toward the end of the season, with five touchdowns in the final four games of the year. Reed's 11 touchdowns tied him for seventh in the league and only Tyler Eifert scored more among tight ends. He should be treated as a top-flight tight end in 2016.

Reed caught all four of his targets for 45 yards in Sunday's season finale against the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Reed wasn't asked to do nearly as much in this one after recording 25 catches for 333 yards and five touchdowns over the previous three weeks, but he should play a bigger role in the NFC Wild Card Round next week. The third-year tight end once again showed excellent chemistry with quarterback Kirk Cousins despite his modest production, as Reed hauled in every pass thrown his way.

Reed's coach, Jay Gruden, said that it might make sense to rest some key players in Week 17 against the Cowboys, CSN Mid-Atlantic reports.

EDGE Analysis

Given Reed's injury history, it wouldn't make much sense for him to handle his usual workload in a game that has no impact on the playoff picture. Of course, he's entirely capable of producing a solid TE1 stat line in one half (or quarter), and Gruden may want his starters to get a tune-up for the postseason. Other leading candidates for rest include Kirk Cousins, DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon.

Reed hauled in all seven passes that came his way in Sunday's win over Buffalo, totaling 84 yards and two scores.

EDGE Analysis

Reed got going early, scoring on a three-yard jumpball in the first quarter and then split the seam for an 18-yard touchdown in the second half. Reed had a three-game span in the middle of the season during which he found the end zone five times, but followed that up with a three-game scoreless streak. He has now scored three times in two weeks and only Rob Gronkowski and Tyler Eifert have more touchdowns from the tight end position this season. Given his ability to score in bunches, Sunday being his second two-score game of the season, Reed is tough to keep out of the lineup.

Reed led the Redskins with nine catches on nine targets for 120 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over the Bears.

EDGE Analysis

The tight end produced his best all-around performance of the season Sunday, as he went over 100 yards for the first time and registered his second highest reception total. Reed continues to play a large role in the Washington passing attack, as he leads the team in targets nearly every time he suits up. Reed will match up against a Bills defense in Week 15 that just allowed Eagles tight ends to account for nearly half of their receiving yardage on Sudnay.

Reed caught three of eight targets for 33 yards in Monday's loss to the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

The entire offense struggled this week failing to score a touchdown until the final minute of the game. This game definitely registers as his worst performance this season. Expect him to get back on track next week against the Bears.

Reed caught eight passes off of nine targets for 98 yards in Sunday's win over the Giants.

EDGE Analysis

The 98 receiving yards represented a season-high for Reed. Since returning to the lineup in Week 8, Reed has led Washington in receptions in three of five games and his five touchdowns during the span are more than any other Washington receiver this season. Reed appears to have developed a strong rapport with Kirk Cousins, one that has not been diminished by the return of DeSean Jackson. In fact, fantasy owners can expect Jackson's ability to stretch defenses vertically to benefit Reed as he does most of his damage on underneath plays.
