News: The Chiefs placed defensive back Jacques Reeves (hamstring) on injured reserve on Tuesday, reports the team's official site. Reeves is done for the season.
Analysis: Reeves was doing little for the defense in Kansas City before suffering his injury this season. He has low-end Fantasy value and should be removed from all rosters now that he's landed on IR.
News: According to NFL.com, Kansas City signed defensive back Jacques Reeves on Friday.The six-year veteran has played with the Texans and Cowboys in his career. Reeves played in 28 games (21 starts) during his two seasons with Houston, totaling 77 tackles (69 solo) with five interceptions.
Analysis: Reeves has a new team, but his Fantasy value remains the same. He can be ignored in all IDP leagues on Draft Day this fall.
News: Texans coach Gary Kubiak said veteran CB Jacques Reeves has been released and the team plans to keep five corners. We were going young at that position, Kubiak said. Its about as young a group as Ive ever been around, but theyve been very effective."
Analysis: Reeves came over from Dallas a few years ago and had four interceptions in his first season with Houston. But his play suffered last season and apparently he wasn't good enough to keep around this season. Reeves might find work with another team, but Reeves is not worth the time in Fantasy.
News: Houston DB Jacques Reeves (finger) has been listed as probable for the team's Week 5 game at Arizona.
Analysis: Cushing was inactive for Week 4 but should be healthy enough to go Week 5. However, he remains a player not worth owning in any Fantasy format.
News: Houston CB Jacques Reeves will miss Sunday's game against Oakland after breaking his right pinky finger during warmups for practice. Coach Gary Kubiak said the finger was broken Wednesday after being hit with a ball. He said it was a compound fracture, meaning the bone broke through the skin. Reeves was released from the hospital Thursday after having a procedure to repair the finger. This is the second broken bone this season for Reeves, a starter last year, who broke his leg early in camp and hasn't played this season. He expects to return next week. "It's a pinky, man, I'll be all right," he said. "I have a pretty high pain tolerance so I should be all right."
Analysis: Keep Reeves reserved in all leagues. He has minimal Fantasy value even when healthy.
News: The Texans have announced their inactives for Week 2 at Tennessee. Out are WRs Andre Davis and Kevin Walter, DB Antwaun Molden, DB Jacques Reeves and DL Shaun Cody.
Analysis: Walter is the big name among this group, but with his hamstring injury and the expected wet conditions in Tennessee, he isn't a huge surprise inactive. Davis can have some low-end Fantasy value when healthy, but was declared out earlier in the week. The other guys all have zero Fantasy value.
News: Texans cornerback Jacques Reeves should be back and safety Eugene Wilson could play at Tennessee in Week 2. But will their return and an extra week of practice for Dunta Robinson improve a Houston secondary that allowed 272 yards passing by a rookie quarterback in a 24-7 loss to the Jets last week? Reeves has been out since early in training camp with a broken leg. He says getting all the starters back would be a boost to a team trying to avoid an 0-2 start at Tennessee on Sunday. Reeves and Wilson both practiced on Wednesday. Coach Gary Kubiak says he'll decide later in the week if the pair are ready to play.
Analysis: Neither Reeves nor Wilson produce enough stats to warrant Fantasy use, so keep both players off IDP league rosters for now.
News: Texans CB Jacques Reeves should play this week at Tennessee after breaking his leg early in training camp.
Analysis: Reeves had 52 tackles and a career-high four interceptions in his first season with the Texans in 2008. He might not be a well-known name, but Reeves is a good corner and has a starting job when healthy. He might be considered a low-end Fantasy DB in larger formats now that he's healthy, but wait until he starts producing before you add him in IDP formats.
News: The Texans have announced their inactives for Week 1 vs. the Jets: DB Eugene Wilson (knee), DB Jacques Reeves (fibula), DT DelJuan Robinson (calf), WR Kevin Walter (hamstring) and TE Anthony Hill.
Analysis: Walter is the big name among this group and should be benched in all formats. Hopefully he won't miss much time. The rest of these guys have no Fantasy value.
News: Houston DB Jacques Reeves will not play in Week 1's game against the Jets due to a fibula injury.
Analysis: Reeves had 52 tackles and a career-high four interceptions in his first season with the Texans in 2008. He might not be a well-known name, but Reeves is a good corner and has a starting job when healthy. He might be considered a low-end Fantasy DB in larger formats when healthy. Keep him out of all formats for Week 1.
News: Texans CB Jacques Reeves returned to practice Wednesday for the first time since breaking his leg early in training camp and said he expects to play Week 2 against the Titans. Reeves is expected to start at left cornerback when he returns.
Analysis: Reeves had 52 tackles and a career-high four interceptions in his first season with the Texans in 2008. He might not be a name NFLer, but Reeves is a good corner and has a starting job when healthy. He might be considered a low-end Fantasy DB in larger formats.
News: Houston Texans starting cornerback Jacques Reeves and starting center Chris Myers will miss time from injuries sustained in practice. Both were injured Tuesday morning. Reeves fractured his left leg in a collision with receiver Andre Davis when both were going for a pass in the end zone. Reeves, who signed as a free agent in 2008, is expected to be out 6 to 8 weeks.
Analysis: Reeves is not expected to be a big contributor as far as Fantasy IDP leagues go so this injury hurts the Texans DST more than his own Fantasy value. He should not be drafted at this point.
News: Houston DB Jacques Reeves and LB Kevin Bentley both recovered fumbles Week 16 at Oakland. Bentley also had six tackles while Reeves had two.
Analysis: Neither played does enough consistently in Fantasy to be worth owning in IDP leagues. LEave them on waivers.
News: Texans DB Jacques Reeves had his fourth interception of the season and second in two games Week 13 against the Jaguars. He finished with six solo tackles.
Analysis: Reeves' recent interceptions make him worth a look in Fantasy IDP leagues, but he remains a low-end defensive back.
News: Texans DB Jacques Reeves had a solid all-around defensive performance Week 12 at Cleveland. He finished with five solo tackles, a forced fumble, and an interception -- his third.
Analysis: Reeves doesn't get interceptions consistently enough to make a significant Fantasy impact. Leave him on waivers in Fantasy IDP leagues.
News: The Texans got a defensive touchdown in Week 9 at Minnesota when DB Jacques Reeves returned an interception 44 yards for a score. The interception was the only turnover the Texans forced, though, in a game in which they gave up 28 points and 345 total yards. They had three sacks in the game.
Analysis: Reeves had two solo tackles and an assist in the game. Despite the score, Reeves has not been very useful in Fantasy this season. He is in his first year with the Texans, and despite a starting role, he remains just a low-end Fantasy DB.
News: Texans DB Jacques Reeves picked off Titans QB Kerry Collins' first pass during a Week 3 loss. Reeves finished with four tackles (three solo) and two pass defenses.
Analysis: Reeves now has two career interceptions. He is in his first year with the Texans, and despite a starting role, he remains just a low-end Fantasy DB.
News: Former Cowboys cornerback Jacques Reeves signed with the Houston Texans on Saturday. Reeves, an unrestricted free agent, spent his first four seasons with the Cowboys where he became a starter last season. He had 60 tackles and an interception in 13 starts last season for Dallas. The Texans are in need of help in the secondary with top cornerback Dunta Robinson likely to miss the early part of the season recovering from a severe knee and hamstring injury. Reeves was a seventh-round pick in 2004 out of Purdue.
Analysis: Reeves is a decent cornerback but not a real big stat producer. You can keep him off of Fantasy rosters for now.
News: The Texans signed DB Jacques Reeves away from Dallas. Reeves (5-11, 188 pounds), the first of several moves the Texans are expected to make at defensive back, signed a five-year contract worth $20 million Saturday. His contract includes a $4 million signing bonus. "The Texans are a team on the rise," said Reeves, who will compete for the starting job opposite Fred Bennett, in the Houston Chronicle. "They're a young team that came together last year. Win a couple more games next season, and it might mean the playoffs." Reeves will play in a different defensive scheme with the Texans. Rather than play in the Cowboys' 3-4 and line up off the receiver, he'll play in a 4-3 and line up on the receiver.
Analysis: Reeves' Fantasy value will improve by signing with the Texans but not much. Keep an eye on his development leading up to the season, but he has minimal Fantasy value at this time in IDP leagues.
News:The Sports Xchange reports Cowboys DB Jacques Reeves has started the first six games as an injury replacement for first Terence Newman and now Anthony Henry. He has been solid and has helped build depth at cornerback. "It helps now that guys have played and played a while," Phillips said. "Jacques has started every game for us and we thought he was not going to get to play a whole lot. He's gotten better and I think that's going to help us in the long run."
Analysis: Reeves has managed 30 tackles, one interception and one forced fumble in six games. He might receive another start in Week 7 against the Vikings as Henry continue to nurse an injury. If Reeves starts, consider him nothing more than a low-end Fantasy DB. He will likely go back to being a reserve once Henry is healthy.
News: Terence Newman (heel) is inactive for Week 1 against the Giants, so Jacques Reeves will get the start in his absence.
Analysis: Newman should be reserved in all IDP Fantasy leagues. Reeves is only worth a look in the deepest of leagues if you need an emergency replacement at this point.
News: Starting left cornerback Terence Newman, who has a partially torn plantar fascia, will be a game-time decision for Sunday's season opener with the New York Giants. He will cover receivers during pregame warmups and if there's only slight pain, he will take some pain medication and play.
Analysis: Newman, listed as questionable on the injury report, did not practice Friday, but said he will try to push off and fully plant his right foot before the game. Consider him too risky to rely upon in IDP formats for Week 1. If Newman is unable to play, Jacques Reeves moves into the starting lineup and Nate Jones becomes the cornerback in passing situations. Consider both players low-end options in IDP play.
News: The Cowboys have tendered restricted free agents LB Ryan Fowler, DB Nathan Jones and DB Jacques Reeves. If any of them sign an offer sheet with another team, the Cowboys have the right of first refusal. If Jones or Reeves switch teams, the Cowboys would get a seventh-round pick as compensation for each of them; no such compensation exists for Fowler.
Analysis: All three defenders provide nice depth, but none of them are expected to produce enough stats to be used in Fantasy play.
News: Notable inactives for the Lions-Cowboys game in Week 17 include: Lions QB Dan Orlovsky (No. 3 QB), FS Daniel Bullocks, CB Dee McCann, LB Teddy Lehman, TE Casey FitzSimmons and DE Claude Harriott. For the Cowboys, CB Jacques Reeves, DB Quincy Butler, SS Abram Elam, DT Montavious Stanley and DE Jay Ratliff are inactive.
Analysis: None of these players should be considered for Fantasy use in the first place.
News: Notable inactives for the Cowboys in Week 16 vs. the Eagles include: SS Tony Parrish, CB Jacques Reeves, DE Junior Glymph, DT Montavious Stanley and DE Stephen Bowen.
Analysis: None of these players should be considered for Fantasy use in the first place, and their absence should not deter owners from using the Cowboys defense as a low-end choice in Week 16 Fantasy play.
News: DE Stephen Bowen, S Tony Parrish, CB Jacques Reeves and DT Montavious Stanley are inactive for Week 14 against the Saints.
Analysis: None of the four players are worth using in most IDP Fantasy leagues when they are in the lineup.
News: The Dallas Morning News reports Cowboys tendered contracts to six exclusive rights free agents, including Patrick Crayton. Terrance Copper, Willie Pile, and Jacques Reeves have been tendered contracts worth $385,000. Lousaka Polite and L.P. Ladouceur were tendered at $310,000.
Analysis: Reeves will have no value in Fantasy Football drafts.
