Raiders will 'devise some plays' to utilize Marcel Reece

Friday, September 11, 2015, 2:26pm - [Full Article]

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.

ESPN - [Full Article]

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.

Bengals - [Full Article]

In the two years that Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson spent in Oakland, he helped 255-lb Marcel Reece earn the nickname the “Matchup Nightmare.” Jackson used Reece as a fullback, tailback, and even had him line up at wide receiver to take advantage of his unique skills as a runner and receiver.

Could Jackson have similar things in mind for Mohamed Sanu?

“He’s got me doing some stuff,” said Sanu with a grin. “I love it. I’m embracing it and I’m going to do everything that I can to make sure that I’m the best at it.”

“He’s rolling,” said Marvin Jones. “He’s gotten a lot faster and more explosive and it’s good to see out there.”

“He’s running a lot better I think than he has the last two years,” said Andy Dalton. “He looks smooth and I think his speed has increased. It’s been fun to see all of the things that he does. He’s a guy that’s outside, inside, and can play all of the positions. You need a guy on the team like that that can do it all.”
