Marcel Reece rushed eight times for 37 yards in Oakland's Week 12 win over the Chiefs, adding an eight-yard reception.

The nine touches were by far Reece's most of the season. The Raiders finally appear to be turning the page on their Darren McFadden/Maurice Jones-Drew backfield, but Reece is unlikely to come into legitimate 12-14 team league value.

De'Anthony Thomas rushed once for nine yards in Kansas City's Week 12 loss to the Raiders, adding two catches for an additional 15 yards.

He also added a 48-yard kick return. Thomas has looked like a legit playmaker, but he's not getting the ball enough to be on the re-draft radar.
Nov 21 - 12:38 AM

Knile Davis rushed twice for two yards in Kansas City's Week 12 loss to the Raiders.

He wasn't targeted in the passing game. Making a West Coast road trip on a short week, the Chiefs bafflingly dialed up only 24 rushes against the worst team in the league. It quite likely cost them the game. With Jamaal Charles running at an All-Pro level, Davis won't be on the RB3 radar against the Broncos' elite run defense in Week 13.

Frankie Hammond caught 1-of-3 targets for six yards in Kansas City's Week 12 loss to the Raiders.

With Donnie Avery and Junior Hemingway ailing, the Chiefs needed Hammond to step up. Instead he dropped a critical third-down pass (which was overturned by a penalty) and failed to come back to the ball on the final play of the game. It was a dismal performance. The Chiefs arguably have the least receiver talent in the league.

Anthony Fasano caught 2-of-2 targets for 30 yards and a touchdown in Kansas City's Week 12 loss to the Raiders.

Returning from a knee injury, Fasano made a beautiful adjustment on an under-thrown ball from Alex Smith for his 19-yard score in the third quarter. The touchdown was Fasano's third of the season. The barely-there TE2 will take a 22/203/3 line into Week 13.

Mychal Rivera caught 1-of-4 targets for eight yards in Oakland's Week 12 win over the Chiefs.

Rivera now has just four grabs for 48 yards on nine targets over his past two games. He's going to remain a part of the Raiders' game plan going forward, but won't be a recommended Week 13 streaming option against a Rams defense that puts the clampdown on tight ends.
Nov 21 - 12:26 AM

James Jones caught 5-of-6 targets for 47 yards and a touchdown in Oakland's Week 12 win over the Chiefs.

For once, Jones' touchdown didn't come in garbage time. The 30-year-old veteran ran a beautiful route to get open for his nine-yard score with 1:42 remaining. It ended up holding up as the game winner. Jones still has plenty of juice left in his legs, but he's going to keep struggling for consistency in the Raiders' bogged-down passing attack. He's a WR4 who will hurt you when he doesn't find the end zone.
Nov 21 - 12:23 AM

Andre Holmes caught 5-of-10 targets for 55 yards in Oakland's Week 10 win over the Chiefs.

The five catches were Holmes' most since Week 8. Altogether, it wasn't that great of a night for the fourth-year pro, who had a few miscommunications with Derek Carr. His biggest catch could have easily been a Chiefs interception, but DB Ron Parker mistimed his jump. Holmes will remain a crapshoot WR4/5 for Week 13 against the Rams.
