Marcel Reece had one catch for 11 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss to the Broncos.
It was his only target of the night. Reece finishes the 2013 season with 46 carries, 218 yards, and four total touchdowns, adding 32 catches for 331 yards in the passing game. A better real-life player than fantasy asset, Reece will return as the Raiders' starting fullback in 2014 and could push for a third down role. Sun, Dec 29, 2013 08:16:00 PM

Marcel Reece had four catches for 26 yards in Week 16 against the Chargers.

Reece didn't receive any carries, but managed six targets in the passing game. He saw his role decreased again this week with Darren McFadden healthy and dropped a touchdown on the last play of the game. Reece will remain behind Rashad Jennings and McFadden for touches in Week 17 against the Broncos.

Marcel Reece rushed five times for 18 yards and caught two passes for 52 yards in Sunday's Week 15 loss to the Chiefs.

No matter how well Reece plays in spot duty, the Raiders refuse to increase his role on offense. So with Rashad Jennings back from his concussion, the playmaking fullback was a small part of the gameplan. Reece has fewer than eight carries in all but one game this year, leaving him off the fantasy radar in Week 16.

The Oakland Tribune expects Marcel Reece to "again recede into the background" with Rashad Jennings cleared from his concussion.

The Trib's Jerry McDonald is the second Raiders beat writer to expect Jennings to immediately assume a clear-cut lead back role in Week 15, despite Reece's 161-yard, one-score shredding of the Jets' formerly league-best run defense. "Whatever these coaches need me to do, whatever my team needs me to do, I'm going to do it," said ultimate team player Reece. Look for Reece to be Jennings' change-of-pace back this week against Kansas City.

Marcel Reece had 19 carries for 123 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's Week 14 loss to the Jets.

He added two catches for 38 yards. With Rashad Jennings and Darren McFadden sidelined, Reece started and handled lead back duties. He outran the entire Jets defense on a 63-yard touchdown down the middle of the field on the Raiders' opening drive of the second half, and came close to scoring a second touchdown late in the fourth quarter but was stopped on consecutive carries from the one-yard line. Reece is worth owning as a handcuff with McFadden "week to week," but won't be a fantasy option if Jennings returns in Week 15.

Marcel Reece will be the Raiders feature back in Sunday's game against the Jets.

Rashad Jennings (concussion), Darren McFadden (ankle) and Jeremy Stewart (knee/ankle) are all out. It leaves the versatile Reece, a college wideout turned NFL fullback, as the starting tailback. It's a role Reece shined in previously as he piled up 13.5 carries for 65.2 yards and 5.0 catches for 48.7 yards per day in four November 2012 starts. He won't find much running room against Rex Ryan's league-best run defense, but desperate PPR owners can execute a plug-n-play strategy at their flex spot.

Marcel Reece rushed five times for 14 yards and caught four passes for 44 yards with a touchdown in Sunday's Week 12 loss to the Titans.

Reece thought he had a game-winner when he caught a 27-yard touchdown from Matt McGloin with 6:17 to go. But the Titans went on a game-winning drive to squeeze out a 23-19 win. Any owner thinking about chasing Reece's numbers from this one should note that he had just 17 carries and 17 catches through the first 10 games. He's a far better real-life player than fantasy asset.

Marcel Reece rushed four times for six yards and caught two passes for 17 yards in Sunday's Week 11 win at Houston.

Even with Darren McFadden (hamstring) down, Reece has not earned a real piece of the running game. He also had a really bad drop on a perfectly thrown ball from Matt McGloin in the first half. Reece shouldn't be on any fantasy rosters.
Sun, Nov 17, 2013 04:51:00 PM

Marcel Reece caught three passes for 30 yards in Oakland's Week 10 loss to the Giants.

Even with Darren McFadden sidelined, Reece was held without a rush attempt. He's well off the re-draft league radar.
Sun, Nov 10, 2013 05:54:00 PM

Marcel Reece was held to no gain on his lone carry in Oakland's Week 9 loss to the Eagles.

Reece caught just two passes for 22 yards. That's despite the fact that Darren McFadden missed nearly 75 percent of the game with a hamstring injury. Reece was No. 3 on the ball carrier depth chart behind Rashad Jennings and Jeremy Stewart. There's no fantasy value here for the 2012 folk hero.
Sun, Nov 3, 2013 08:29:00 PM

Marcel Reece managed three rushes for ten yards in the Raiders' Week 8 win over the Steelers.

The Raiders say publicly seemingly every week that they want "more touches" for Reece, but it never happens. He's never a recommended fantasy flex play.
Sun, Oct 27, 2013 08:06:00 PM

Coach Dennis Allen reiterated the team wants to get Marcel Reece more touches.

"We've got to do a better job of making sure we put him in positions where he’s getting his touches because he is a good player for us," Allen said. This isn't the first time the Raiders have expressed a desire to get Reece more looks. GM Reggie McKenzie said the same thing a month ago. Reece touched the ball one time last week. There just aren't enough balls to go around in Oakland.

Marcel Reece caught one pass for nine yards in Oakland's Week 6 loss to the Chiefs, and was held without a carry.

Reece wasn't a part of the running game with both Darren McFadden (hamstring) and Rashad Jennings (hamstring) healthy and active. Reece can be safely cut loose in fantasy leagues.

Marcel Reece (knee) participated in Raiders practice again Friday.

Reece will be all systems go against the Chiefs, but hasn't been a big part of the Raiders' offense in terms of touches. He's not a fantasy option.
Fri, Oct 11, 2013 01:57:00 PM

Marcel Reece (knee) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Reece played the entire second half in Sunday's win over the Chargers and didn't suffer any setbacks. He isn't in any danger of missing Week 6. With Darren McFadden and Rashad Jennings also practicing on a limited basis, Reece is looking unlikely to start at running back this week.
