2014 Outlook:  

Last updated on Jul-11-2014 by Larry Goldstein

Marcel Reece is one of the few fullbacks that occasionally posts an impressive stat-line for fantasy purposes. A poor man's Mike Tolbert, Reece has made his presence felt with 84 receptions over the past two years. Reece should be on the field a lot in 2014, blocking for the flavor of the day in the Raiders' backfield. Expect a few high-volume reception days, but Reece should not be considered a fantasy option for your team.

Latest Update

Jul-29-14 Raiders RB/FB Marcel Reece has lost weight, in shape for camp

ESPN Oakland beat writer Paul Gutierrez reports "Marcel Reece's physical transformation is very noticeable" noting that Reece was up to 255 pounds in the offseason and is now down to 238 pounds in camp. Gutierrez also says he should be more involved in the pass game now that he is a lighter and fitter. Reece had 46 attempts, rushing for 218 yards and 2TD's last year and is expected to take on more of a full back role this season.

Fantasy Analysis:

Reece holds very little fantasy value but two things are worth noting: If he's getting passes this year, it means less passes for primary Raider RBs Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew. Last year, while it was wildly expected that Latavius Murray had a solid hold on backup duties, it was actually Reece who saw all carries when injury struck both McFadden and Rashad Jennings. The Raiders also signed RB Kory Sheets who played in the CFL last year and will be battling for a roster spot in camp.

17.09 FFMagicMan - It's almost hard to believe that with a back as delicate as McFadden you can grab his handcuff in the 17th round. Enjoy the Latavius Murray hype but if something happens and DMC misses games, Reece will be the beneficiary. We saw it last season, it will be the same in 2013.
