Josh Reynolds Could Have Big Role In Denver

Denver Broncos wide receiver Josh Reynolds could find himself in a substantial role in the Broncos' offense in his first year with the team after signing a two-year, $9 million deal in March. Reynolds comes from Detroit, where head coach Dan Campbell previously worked under current Broncos head coach Sean Payton in New Orleans. Payton is seeking more production all across the offense in 2024 and is embracing the idea that it could come from anywhere. "He's long; he has strong hands. Another veteran receiver," Payton said of Reynolds. Courtland Sutton is the unquestioned top wideout in Denver, but Reynolds will be competing for a starting role with the rehabbing Tim Patrick, Marvin Mims Jr. and rookie fourth-rounder Troy Franklin. With questions at QB, though, Reynolds will most likely go undrafted in standard 12-team fantasy leagues this fall.

Josh Reynolds Signs Two-Year Deal With Broncos

Former Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds signed a two-year deal worth up to $14 million with the Denver Broncos on Wednesday, according to a source. The Broncos have been one of the most quiet teams in free agency this year, with Reynolds being their biggest addition by far. The 29-year-old will help replace Jerry Jeudy, who was traded to the Cleveland Browns. Reynolds caught 40 of his 64 targets last year in Detroit for 608 yards and five touchdowns in 17 regular-season games. Courtland Sutton will remain Denver's unquestioned No. 1 wideout, but Reynolds has a chance to be their No. 2 if he can beat out Tim Patrick (Achilles) and Marvin Mims Jr. in training camp. With either quarterback Jarrett Stidham or a rookie running the Broncos' offense in 2024, there won't be much fantasy upside for Reynolds in his new home.

Josh Reynolds Visiting With Ravens

Free-agent wide receiver Josh Reynolds is visiting with the Baltimore Ravens on Friday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The 29-year-old had one of the best seasons of his career last year with the Detroit Lions, racking up 40 receptions for 608 yards and five touchdowns. Reynolds was originally a fourth-round pick by the Los Angeles Rams in 2017, and outside of five games with the Tennessee Titans in 2021, he has spent his entire career with quarterback Jared Goff. Overall, the Texas A&M product has 220 receptions for 2,933 yards and 19 touchdowns through his first 107 NFL games. The Ravens are looking to upgrade from what Odell Beckham Jr. and Rashod Bateman gave them at wideout last year, so Reynolds makes sense as a potential WR2 or WR3 for Lamar Jackson.

Josh Reynolds Finds End Zone In NFC Divisional Win

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds caught two of his three targets for 27 yards and a touchdown in the 31-23 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. Detroit is now headed to the NFC Championship Game to face the San Francisco 49ers, who were a neutral matchup for wide receivers during the regular season. Jared Goff's second-favorite wide receiver target has been Reynolds this year, so he remains a budget-friendly DFS option In two-game and single-game contests. He should not be expected to outproduce Amon-Ra St. Brown or Sam LaPorta, but Goff trusts him in critical moments.

Josh Reynolds A Bargain DFS Option Against Tampa Bay

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds was the team's second-most productive during the regular season, and the trend continued in the win over the Los Angeles Rams in round one of the NFC Playoffs. Reynolds hauled in five passes for 80 yards to help defeat his former team. This week, he has plenty of upside against a Tampa Bay defense that surrendered the 10th-most fantasy points per game to wideouts during the regular season. At his $3,700 price tag in full-slate DraftKings tournaments, he's an interesting budget-friendly wide receiver or flex option. Although he hasn't been a consistent producer, quarterback Jared Goff trusts him, and he's a threat to find the end zone on Sunday.

Josh Reynolds Matches Season-High In Receiving Against Rams

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds caught five of his seven targets for 80 yards in the Wild Card victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Like quarterback Jared Goff, Reynolds began his career with L.A., and he produced a big-time performance in an effort to eliminate them from the playoffs. With Sam LaPorta (knee) banged up, the 28-year-old stepped up and helped Detroit win its first playoff game since 1992. Next week, Reynolds will face the Philadelphia Eagles or Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Both squads allowed at least the tenth-most fantasy points per game to wideouts during the regular season, so he'll remain a budget-friendly DFS option in the NFC Divisional Round.

Josh Reynolds Could See Extra Targets On Sunday

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds had a decent year in 2023, posting 40 receptions for 608 yards and five touchdowns. He's been hit-or-miss for fantasy football and rarely valuable for DFS, but he could be in an elevated role against the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Sam LaPorta (knee) is in danger of missing this contest, and even if he does play, he could be limited by a knee injury he suffered in Week 18. Kalif Raymond (knee) was also hurt in that game, while Jameson Williams (ankle) and Brock (hip) remain on the injury report after missing Week 18 entirely. It remains to be seen how many of these four players will suit up on Sunday, but Reynolds is the healthiest of them all. The Rams have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers in 2023, making Reynolds a cheap DFS flyer this weekend.

Josh Reynolds Concludes 2023 Season With One Catch

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds caught just one of his four targets for 16 yards in the Week 18 win over the Minnesota Vikings. He finished just 10 yards shy of tying his career-high of 618 receiving yards. Overall, the 28-year-old finished the campaign with 40 receptions on 64 targets for 608 yards and five touchdowns. His role has been fluid week-to-week, but with Jameson Williams (ankle), Sam LaPorta (knee), and Kalif Raymond (knee) all picking up injuries over the last two weeks, he could become a crucial piece of the Lions' passing attack behind Amon-Ra St. Brown. He's a sleeper pick in postseason fantasy leagues.

Josh Reynolds Questionable To Face Broncos

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds (back) is officially listed as questionable for Week 15 against the Denver Broncos on Saturday after popping up on Thursday's injury report due to a back injury. Reynolds was limited in practice on both Thursday and Friday, so he could be a game-time decision for this one. The 28-year-old has scored in two of the last three games for the Lions and has five touchdowns on the year, but he hasn't had more than three receptions in a game since Week 5 and hasn't reached the 50-yard mark in a contest since Week 6. If he is able to suit up Saturday, Reynolds isn't a recommended streaming option in the fantasy playoffs against a Broncos defense that has been very strong in the second half of the season. If Reynolds is out in Week 15, Jameson Williams and Kalif Raymond could see more opportunities.

Josh Reynolds Limited On Wednesday With Back Issue

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds (back) was limited in practice on Wednesday as his team is preparing to face the Denver Broncos on Saturday. Reynolds was not listed with a back issue on Tuesday's estimated practice report, so his inclusion on Wednesday's report is a bit of a concern heading into Saturday. Fantasy managers will want to monitor Reynolds' status on Thursday to get a clearer picture of his status for this weekend. A Reynolds absence would open up more looks for Jameson Williams and perhaps even Donovan Peoples-Jones this week. Stay tuned.

Josh Reynolds Catches Touchdown In Week 14

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds caught three of his four targets for 44 yards and a touchdown in the Week 14 upset loss to the Chicago Bears. Reynolds led the team in receptions, yards, and touchdowns, but it was an overall disappointing performance for the Jared Goff-led offense. While Reynolds has flashed at times this year, he remains a touchdown-dependent deep-league flex option only. However, deep-league fantasy managers can consider stashing him in case Amon-Ra St. Brown or Sam LaPorta get banged up down the stretch.

Josh Reynolds Catches Touchdown Pass In Week 12

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds hauled in two of four targets for 15 yards and one touchdown during the team's loss to the Green Bay Packers on Thanksgiving Day. Reynolds was a steady fantasy option through the first five weeks of the season but has since quieted down, averaging just 1.87 catches over his last six contests. Despite finding the end zone on Thursday, Reynolds finds himself behind Jahmyr Gibbs, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Jameson Williams, and Sam LaPorta on the pecking order of this passing attack going forward. He can be dropped to waivers in most redraft leagues.

Josh Reynolds Has Decreased Fantasy Value Heading Into Week 11

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds had a productive start to the 2023 campaign, racking up 291 yards and three touchdowns through his first four games. However, the veteran has not seen more than four targets or reached the end zone in any of his last four games. Ever since Jameson Williams has returned, Reynolds has failed to be a reliable fantasy option. That said, he's a shaky deep-league flex play in Week 11 against the Chicago Bears. He could be worth starting, depending on your available options, but his floor has been low over the last month.

Josh Reynolds A Dice Roll Flex Option In Week 10

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds started off the 2023 campaign hot, scoring three touchdowns in his first five games. However, the veteran has cooled off in recent weeks, as he has seen just seven total targets over his last three contests. Even though Jameson Williams has failed to make a big impact for Detroit, his return from suspension has seemingly negatively affected Reynolds' fantasy outlook and upside. All that said, Reynolds is a decent deep league flex option in a Week 10 matchup with the Los Angeles Chargers, who have allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per game to wideouts this season.

Josh Reynolds' Role Continues To Shrink

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds was barely involved again in the 26-14 win over the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football, catching his only target for a 13-yard gain. Reynolds played 83 percent of the offensive snaps, but it amounted to very little in terms of production, and he hasn't been targeted more than three times in a game since Week 5, when he caught four of five targets for 76 yards and a touchdown. In the last three games, Reynolds has just six receptions on seven targets for 106 yards and no scores. The 28-year-old is losing targets to second-year wideout Jameson Williams, even though Reynolds has been on the field way more often. Reynolds should bounce back at some point, but he has become a hard-to-trust WR4/5 in deeper fantasy leagues.

Josh Reynolds A Shaky Flex Options Against Raiders

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds started off the 2023 season hot, but he has cooled off in recent weeks. The veteran receiver has caught just five passes over the last two weeks, posting 93 yards and zero touchdowns. The Las Vegas Raiders have allowed the ninth-fewest fantasy points per game to wide receivers, so Reynolds could be in for another down performance on Monday Night Football. With no teams on a bye, Reynolds has very little Week 8 fantasy value. Don't start him unless you have to.

Oct 28, 2023 12:21 PM EST


Josh Reynolds A Low-End Flex Option In Week 7

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds has been productive to begin the 2023 season, catching 19 of his 27 targets for 341 yards and three scores. However, unlike his stud teammate Amon-Ra St. Brown, Reynolds is more matchup-dependent. This could mean he's due for a letdown against the Baltimore Ravens, who have surrendered the seventh-fewest fantasy points per game to wideouts thus far. Baltimore hasn't faced a ton of star receivers, but Reynolds is a middle-tier receiver. All that said, the Lions offense is firing on all cylinders, and they might lean more on the passing game since David Montgomery (ribs), Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring), and Craig Reynolds (hamstring/toe) are all banged up. Consider Reynolds a low-end PPR league flex option in this spot.

Josh Reynolds Could Maintain Value In Week 6

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds has hauled in 16 passes for 291 yards and three touchdowns through his first five games of the 2023 season. He's off to a hot start and could continue to have value when Amon-Ra St. Brown (abdomen) returns to action. St. Brown is trending toward playing against the Buccaneers in Week 6, but if he doesn't, Reynolds is a great flex option against a mid-level Tampa Bay secondary. Either way, the veteran wideout seems to be ahead of Jameson Williams and Kalif Raymond in the target pecking order, so he has flex appeal. It's worth noting Sam LaPorta did not practice on Thursday. Further information on his status will come out before game day.

Oct 12, 2023 1:28 PM EST


Josh Reynolds Finds The End Zone In Week 5

Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds had a team-high four catches for 76 yards during the victory over the Carolina Panthers. He also found the end zone off a one-yard pass from Jared Goff late in the second quarter. The Lions were without Amon-Ra St. Brown (abdomen) and Jahmyr Gibbs (hamstring), so targets were up for grabs. But truth be told, Reynolds has seen routine attention from Goff throughout the season. Even if St. Brown and Gibbs return in Week 6 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Reynolds should be considered at least a flex option in all fantasy formats. However, Reynolds' ceiling will increase if those guys aren't available versus the Bucs.

Oct 8, 2023 5:38 PM EST


Josh Reynolds, Jameson Williams Active For Week 5

Detroit Lions wide receivers Josh Reynolds (groin) and Jameson Williams (non-injury) are active for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. Both players had been listed as questionable. Reynolds, Williams, and Kalif Raymond should all see more opportunities in Amon St. Brown's (abdomen) absence, though Reynolds has the most fantasy appeal of the bunch. It's worth noting that Williams' role will be limited. He is expected to play roughly 20 snaps in his first game back from a four-week suspension.
