Marcel Reece RB OAK Nov 29 '125 Comments

Raiders OC Greg Knapp confirmed that Marcel Reece to be used primarily as a halfback as opposed to a fullback in Week 13 versus the Browns.z

Darren McFadden (ankle) will be "eased back into the mix." For those with short memories, Adrian Peterson and Maurice Jones-Drew were also going to be "eased in" early in the season, only to see big workloads once the coaching staff realized they were the best option. In other words, this is likely to be a hot hand situation on Sunday. Neither Raiders back is a strong RB2 option.

So does this mean that Reece will be splitting the carries with McFadden?

Also, I want to pick up Moreno before anyone else does, so should I drop Reece for Moreno this week? I also have Steven Jackson and Demarco Murray (who Ive been holding onto forever..DUMB, I know..But I would hate do drop him now, after holding onto him forever.. Arian Foster is my RB1). Thanks!

No-Show Moreno is facing the league's No. 1 rushing defense, and yes, Marcel will be splitting the reps with Darren, and it's looking like Marcel will now be getting the majority of the touches this week.

In short, start Marcel, sit No-Show, and feel great about it.

Nah, because of McFadden's return, playing Reese is risky. Only way he outscores Moreno is if McFadden re-injures himself early (admittedly, a real possibility) and don't forget Goodson is also likely to return.
