Raiders will 'devise some plays' to utilize Marcel Reece - [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.
