Free agent FB Marcel Reece worked out for the Seahawks.

It's his fourth known visit since getting cut by Oakland two months ago. Seattle's backfield is paper-thin with C.J. Prosise (shoulder) injured and Christine Michael now in Green Bay. Will Tukuafu has been handling fullback duties for the Seahawks this year.
Nov 30 - 5:32 PM

Free agent FB Marcel Reece worked out for the Bengals.

31-year-old Reece has been out of the league since late September. He's visited with multiple teams, but remains unsigned. Reece could give the Bengals an upgrade over Ryan Hewitt at H-back.
Nov 2 - 5:49 PM

Free agent FB Marcel Reece worked out for the Jets on Tuesday.

It's Reece's second-known workout since he was cut by the Raiders. Now 31, Reece served a steroid ban for the first four games of the season.

Free agent FB Marcel Reece worked out for the Patriots.

It's his first visit since getting cut from Oakland. Reece was suspended the first three games and could need some time to get back in shape. He should resurface in an H-back role.

Raiders released FB Marcel Reece.

Suspended the first three weeks of the season for a PEDs violation, Reece was deemed unworthy of the remainder of his $2.6 million base salary by the Raiders. 31 years old, Reece has averaged 4.6 yards per carry and 9.8 yards per reception in his eight-year career. He should be able to latch on elsewhere as a swiss-army-knife contributor. Reece can also play special teams.
Sep 26 - 5:26 PM

NFL suspended Raiders FB Marcel Reece four games for violating the league's policy against performance enhancing substances.

Reece can serve the first game of the ban in Week 17. He'll have to miss the first three games of the 2016 season. The suspension also eliminates Reece's Pro Bowl berth. Reece, 30, has touched the ball 40 times this year, amassing 305 all-purpose yards with three touchdowns.

Marcel Reece rushed three times for 21 yards in Oakland's Week 9 loss to the Steelers.

Reece formed a three-man committee with Taiwan Jones and Jamize Olawale after Latavius Murray departed with a likely concussion. Were Murray to miss next week's game against the Vikings, Reece would be on the RB3 radar, and have RB2 upside in PPR leagues.

Marcel Reece caught 7-of-8 targets for 49 yards and one touchdown in the Raiders' Week 5 loss to the Broncos.

He rushed one time for six yards. Reece's eight targets were second to Michael Crabtree's nine. His touchdown came from three yards out on a play-action bootleg to the right. Reece doesn't get enough consistent volume to be worthy of a waiver-wire pickup, especially with the Raiders going on their bye.

Raiders FB Marcel Reece caught 1-of-2 targets for 16 yards in Sunday's Week 2 win over Baltimore.

Reece's two-touchdown opener was an obvious fluke. While he's an asset to the Raiders' offense, Reece lacks value in fantasy leagues.
Sun, Sep 20, 2015 07:45:00 PM

Raiders FB Marcel Reece caught 3-of-4 targets for 26 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's Week 1 loss to the Bengals.

He caught a pair of garbage-time TDs from Matt McGloin. Reece has always been an intriguing talent with a standout size-speed combo, but the Raiders have never made frequent use of him as an all-purpose playmaker beyond from when multiple injuries have struck their backfield. We wouldn't go picking up Reece off fantasy waiver wires, even if McGloin makes future starts.
Sun, Sep 13, 2015 08:19:00 PM

Marcel Reece rushed one time for 11 yards and caught three passes for 30 yards in Sunday's Week 17 loss at Denver.

Criminally underutilized by the Raiders once again, Reece somehow finished with just 21 carries and 37 catches on the season. The team has simply wasted the prime years of a unique talent's career, as Reece is now 29 years old. We'll keep our fingers crossed that the next Oakland coaching regime can find a way to get him more involved, as Reece is under contract for just $2.55M in 2015.
Sun, Dec 28, 2014 08:32:00 PM

Marcel Reece rushed four times for 12 yards and caught six passes for 48 yards in the Raiders' Week 13 loss to St. Louis.

The Raiders' run game has actually shown signs of life with Reece and Latavius Murray playing this season. Murray (concussion) was inactive for this game, but the coaching staff still didn't deem Reece worthy of heavy run-game usage. Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew combined for 48 yards on 16 carries. Despite an impressively versatile skill set, Reece continues to go to waste in Oakland. It's worth noting that Reece didn't help himself by losing a third-quarter fumble on Sunday.
Sun, Nov 30, 2014 05:11:00 PM

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.

Marcel Reece (quad) is questionable for Week 8.

Reece practiced every day this week and should return after being held out of last Sunday's loss. He has just 11 touches in five games this season.
