Marcel Reece RB OAK 10 Months

Marcel Reece caught four passes for 45 yards and one touchdown in Monday night's Week 3 loss to the Broncos.

The Raiders wanted to get Reece more touches, so they did just that. However, it wasn't hard to surpass his Week 1 (one) and Week 2 (two) totals. Reece caught his 16-yard touchdown from the right hand of Darren McFadden in the third quarter. Reece won't be on the fantasy radar unless DMC gets hurt.

GM Reggie McKenzie acknowledged the need to get Marcel Reece more touches.

Reece is a matchup nightmare for defenses thanks to his size/speed combo and route-running ability from the H-back spot. That's why McKenzie gave him a four-year, $14.4M contract last week. But through two games, Reece has just two carries and one catch (on three targets). It's simply not enough. Reece is a name to put on deeper watch lists, especially in PPR formats.

Raiders signed FB Marcel Reece to a three-year extension through 2016.

Details of the new deal are not yet available, but Reece was owed $1.423 million entering a contract year. Reece, 28, is averaging 4.8 yards per carry in his career with 107 receptions and six all-purpose touchdowns. A former wide receiver at Washington, Reece has developed into one of the game's premier and most versatile fullbacks. In Oakland's 2012 zone-blocking scheme, Reece was the best tailback on the team.

Raiders FB Marcel Reece caught four passes for 18 yards in the team's Week 16 loss to Carolina.

Captain Checkdown Matt Leinart replaced Carson Palmer (ribs) in the first quarter and finished out the game, translating to five targets for Oakland's lead blocker. Reece has been a non-factor in fantasy football since Darren McFadden returned. He's a full-time fullback again.

Marcel Reece rushed for 10 yards on four carries and caught just one pass for five yards in Thursday night's Week 14 loss to Denver.

Reece started the game at fullback with Darren McFadden's return to the lineup and saw scant work in the loss. He was targeted just one time in the passing game. With the news that McFadden suffered a setback near the end of the game, Reece could be in line for a bigger role in Week 15. McFadden will have 10 days to try and heal up, but even if he misses, Reece shouldn't be counted on to handle the load in the backfield.

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.

The injuries explain Jeremy Stewart's increased role versus the Browns as well as the Raiders' Tuesday signing of RB/FB Jamize Olawale from the Cowboys practice squad. With Darren McFadden due back Thursday night, Reece can be dropped in 12-team leagues.
