Oakland Raiders' Pro Bowl fullback Marcel Reece has been suspended for the next four regular-season games for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing substances, the team announced Monday.

Reece cannot play in Oakland's season finale at Kansas City on Sunday and cannot play in the first three games of the 2016 season. Reece is also ineligible to play in the 2016 Pro Bowl. He was voted to his fourth straight Pro Bowl this past Tuesday.

"I want to let Marcel speak for himself, but I know he's disappointed and he doesn't think it's justified," Raiders coach Jack Del Rio said.

Fantasy Impact:

Reece, 30, can participate in all offseason and preseason practices and games next year. Reece had 30 catches and 10 run attempts this season. He has lost some playing time to Jamize Olawale. Reece has started seven games this season.

Raiders will 'devise some plays' to utilize Marcel Reece

New offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave says it won’t be a problem getting Marcel Reece the ball, even though fullbacks are a dying breed in the NFL.

“No, because Marcel has some dominant traits,” Musgrave said. “Part of coaching for us is we think players first, then plays. So we think a lot about Marcel, think about what his strengths are, and then devise some plays where he could use those.

“So his title may say fullback, but he’s going to be asked to do a few other jobs that may be unconventional.”

Fantasy Impact:

Reece has always been one of our favorite players, but for whatever reason his usage has declined in recent years. With Latavius Murray and Roy Helu dominating the touches, Reece's production isn't likely to be consistent, but he has the talent to post some good fantasy lines.

Coach Dennis Allen may think better of it by game time at Lambeau Field, but saw enough out of Marcel Reece Wednesday to consider playing him in the Raiders' third-preseason game.

"He looked good out there running around so he should be good to go for the game,'' Allen said.

The Oakland Raiders received some good injury news Tuesday: fullback Marcel Reece returned to work in the early portion of practice.

Reece suffered a foot injury Friday against Detroit. He left Sunday’s practice early and did not practice Monday. Oakland coach Dennis Allen said Monday that Reece would get an MRI. Clearly, the results did not show any major issues.

Tuesday, Allen said Reece was limited and will be eased into action.

Reece is a sparkplug to the offense and his presence is vital to the Oakland attack. It is unclear whether Reece will play Friday night in Green Bay in the third preseason game.
