Hurley took mccartin the week so not really
What Reid didn't have a defender that match ? It takes all our forwards keeping their defender busy or they can get across and affect other contests. If they all play well we win games, even if not all get on the scoreboard. That Collingwood moved their best defender off Buddy and onto Reid speaks volumes.

First forward contest Hooker was on McCartin and Hurley left Blakey to get across and spoil.

Reid earlier contesting on the wing. When Reid plays true forward, and Franklins out he generally gets the best defender.

So not really.

He's 27, lost two of the last three years to injury after an excellent 2015 as a 23 yro, played third string to Buddy and Tippet, and developed his game all over the ground.

If he can stay fit, I reckon there are going to be a lot of people with egg on their faces by the end of this year.
