Marcel Reece likely to 'recede into the background'

Oakland Tribune - [Full Article]

Chances are Marcel Reece will again recede into the background with leading rusher Rashad Jennings having recovered from a concussion.

Having played in less than half of the Raiders' offensive snaps this season, Reece by necessity was on the field for all but two snaps in a 37-27 loss to the New York Jets.

The result was 19 carries, a career high 123 yards rushing, acknowledgment of a job well done and likely an immediate future of being shuttled on and off the field depending on the down, distance and play call when the Raiders play the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday at Coliseum.

Yet Reece has no illusions of morphing from versatile fullback to lead tailback.

Fantasy Impact: 

Reece is a versatile player who should see more touches than he does in the Oalkand offense. Rashad Jennings will likely carry the load against the Chiefs. He was the #2 RB in fantasy from Week 9 to Week 13, before his injury.
