Marcel Reece RB OAK Dec 05 '128 Comments

Marcel Reece (hamstring, quad) remained limited in Wednesday's practice, but is listed as probable for Thursday Night Football.

Reece will suit up against the Broncos, but with Darren McFadden (ankle) finally returning, he'll be in for few, if any, snaps at running back. Reece will be back at fullback after being shifted there midway through Sunday's loss. It's possible Jeremy Stewart will serve as McFadden's direct backup, though Mike Goodson (ankle) is also expected to return. Reece is no longer a flex option in 12-team leagues.

He's not much of an option in ANY leagues if even 50% of what this article says is true. >:/

This is why the Raiders are the Raiders. Take a guy who played well the last several games, and sit him for the "starter" who hasn't done crap since he's been in the league, besides get injured a lot.

Yep same situation here man. I knew I was going to be in some trouble when DMC came back from injury. Rodgers has been sitting on my bench all year and right as he started to produce I put him in and he didnt get me much

well at least carolina's run defense is garbage, and rodgers can do a lot with minimal touches, even though it is about damn time they step up his workload, and limit the bowling ball to goaline and 3rd and 1 situations

haha that's rough. if it makes ya feel any better, i play with only one rb, since we have 1rb, 1wr, 2flex in our ppr, and i was stuck drafting mcfadden. my backup was green-ellis who i dropped around week 2 or 3. at this point, i've been shuffling rb's on and off waiver like it's my friggin job. currently have joque bell in there, with reggie bush and forsett (if houston sits foster week 16). fortunately, i got to sit by and watch from the 1 seed bye, to see if mcfadden's good to go, which appears to be the case...a big run and a td catch against a heck of a defense isn't a bad sign with 2 terrible d's coming up...
