Oakland Raiders FB Marcel Reece became a focal point of the offense in the team's Week 11 victory over the Houston Texans after averaging just three touches in the first nine games of the year. Reece ran the ball four times for six yards and caught two passes for 17 yards.
Fantasy Tip: Reece's additional playing time was likely due to Darren McFadden's (hamstring) absence. With DMC uncertain again this week, Reece could see a similar workload, but probably not enough to warrant a starting spot in your lineup.
Fri, 11 Oct 2013 16:37:04 -0700
Oakland Raiders FB Marcel Reece (knee) was a limited participant in practice for the third straight day Friday, Oct. 11, and he is listed as probable for the Week 6 game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Thu, 10 Oct 2013 15:43:52 -0700
Oakland Raiders RB Marcel Reece (knee) was limited in practice Thursday, Oct. 10.
Fantasy Tip: Reece will probably play a complementary role to Rashad Jennings against the Kansas City Chiefs again with Darren McFadden (hamstring) expected to miss his second straight game.
Wed, 09 Oct 2013 18:09:28 -0700
Oakland Raiders DT Stacy McGee (shoulder), OT Tony Pashos (groin) and FB Marcel Reece (knee) were listed as limited participants in practice Wednesday, Oct. 9.
Mon, 07 Oct 2013 05:55:36 -0700
Oakland Raiders RB Rashad Jennings (hamstring) suffered a hamstring injury in the first half of Week 5 and didn't return. The severity is unknown.
Fantasy Tip: If he and Darren McFadden (hamstring) are both out for Week 6, Marcel Reece will likely see the bulk of the action.
Sun, 06 Oct 2013 19:14:29 -0700
Oakland Raiders FB Marcel Reece (knee) is active for the Week 5 game against the San Diego Chargers.
Fantasy Tip: Reece is expected to see touches with Darren McFadden (hamstring) inactive, but Rashad Jennings is likely to see more carries and have a little more fantasy appeal.
Fri, 04 Oct 2013 14:25:08 -0700
Oakland Raiders RB Rashad Jennings is expected to be the lead running back in Week 5 against the San Diego Chargers with RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) unlikely to play. Jennings rushed 14 times for 45 yards and had eight catches for 71 yards in Week 4 against the Washington Redskins. At the beginning of the season, head coach Dennis Allen envisioned Jennings as a "thumper," or physical complement to McFadden.
Jennings has impressed offensive coordinator Greg Olson with his work ethic and physical style of running; Jennings is a "fitness nut" and sleeps in a hyperbaric chamber to increase blood oxygen and promote healing. "He seems to be a tougher player, a tougher runner than I saw a year ago," Olson said. "It's not that he was a poor player by any means, but I just didn't see the physicality that he has shown so far here in Oakland." Week 5 could see Jennings, FB Marcel Reece and RB Jeremy Stewart share carries out of the backfield.
Fantasy Tip: Jennings is your best bet to start, even over Reece, because of his pass-catching abilities. Jennings should be owned everywhere as a handcuff to McFadden, and he makes for a solid bye week filler this weekend.
Fri, 04 Oct 2013 14:05:53 -0700
Oakland Raiders FB Marcel Reece (knee) was limited in practice Friday, Oct. 4, and is questionable for Week 5.
Fantasy Tip: If you can afford to, it would be smart to err on the side of caution and leave Reece on your bench this weekend, with the Raiders' Week 5 game starting late Sunday night. All indications point to Rashad Jennings starting and receiving the majority of touches.
Fri, 04 Oct 2013 13:54:33 -0700
Oakland Raiders RB Darren McFadden (hamstring) did not practice Friday, Oct. 4, and is doubtful for Week 5.
Fantasy Tip: McFadden should be left to your bench this weekend, especially since his matchup with the San Diego Chargers is set for a late Sunday evening start. With Marcel Reece (knee) questionable, expect Rashad Jennings to see the bulk of the workload. Pick him up immediately if he's still available as a handcuff to DMC.
Thu, 03 Oct 2013 16:46:31 -0700
Oakland Raiders FB Marcel Reece (knee) was limited during practice Thursday, Oct. 3.
