Jordan Reed active for Week 9 vs Green Bay Packers

The 49ers add much needed health to their receiver position.

The San Francisco 49ers are activating tight end Jordan Reed off IR to play Thursday night against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy Impact

We saw Reed fill in for George Kittle back in Week 2 and catch seven of his eight targets for 50 yards and two touchdowns. He then promptly got injured Week 3 against the Giants and hasn’t played since. Still, given the lack of healthy pass catchers for the Niners tonight, taking a flier on Reed isn’t the worst idea.
