Jayden Reed Placed On Non-Football Injury List

Sunday, July 21, 7:51 PM

Green Bay Packers wide receiver Jayden Reed (undisclosed) was placed on the Non-Football Injury list on Sunday. The second-year wideout suffered an injury while away from the team. However, he is "totally fine" and expected to miss only a few days of training camp before his eventual activation. Reed had an impressive first season in the National Football League, amassing 793 yards and eight touchdowns off 64 catches, adding 119 yards and two scores off 11 carries. With Jordan Love anticipated to have a solid year in 2024-25, Reed has 1,000-yard receiving potential, meaning he'll draw plenty of interest from fantasy managers heading toward Week 1.

Ladd McConkey Has Picked Up Chargers Offense With Ease

Monday, July 1, 4:45 PM

Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Ladd McConkey was selected at the beginning of the second round in the 2024 NFL Draft, and he has a chance to make a significant impact right away after the organization moved on from Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, and Austin Ekeler this offseason. The veteran trio was responsible for most of L.A.'s receiving production over the last few seasons, so there are big holes to fill in Justin Herbert's offense. According to Herbert, McConkey has excelled right away. "He's just picked up the offense so easily. It's like he's been a four- or five-year vet," Herbert said. "He understands the game." The Georgia product didn't have impressive numbers in college, but he was sharing the field with standout tight end Brock Bowers in a run-heavy offense and dealt with several injuries. If he becomes Herbert's go-to target right away, he has at least weekly flex appeal and WR2 upside in 2024.
