Scouting report

by Joe Holka

OAK RB Marcel Reece - 2016 Fantasy Football Outlook

Fantasy Upside
Marcel Reece is perhaps one of the best full backs in the league and can contribute in the passing game extremely well when called upon. He touched the ball just 40 times last season but he had 305 all-purpose yards and three touchdowns.

Fantasy Downside
Reece is suspended the first three games for violating the leagues substance abuse policy against performance enhancing substances. He touched the ball just 40 times last season and now he has a ton of competition in rookie DeAndre Washington who excels in the passing game as well.

2016 Bottom Line
Reece is suspended the first three games of the season but don’t expect him to be a huge factor in 2016 when he comes back. Washington is the shiny new toy in the passing game. One things for sure, this offensive line is going to be very impressive. It is possible that if Reece got an opportunity due to injury, he could really shine.

OAK RB Marcel Reece - Week 11, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 11 at Detroit
Marcel Reece caught one pass for two yards in last Sunday’s loss to Minnesota. He finished with zero rushing attempts. Unless your strategy involves trying to lose, Reece has no value.

OAK RB Marcel Reece - Week 10, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 10 vs Minnesota
In Week 9, Marcel Reece had three carries for 21 yards and no receptions. As has frequently been the case in the past, Reece does not get enough work to regularly help fantasy owners. He will be worth a closer look if Latavius Murray is unable to play on Sunday due to concussion symptoms, but Murray has been moving in the right direction. It will likely be another quiet afternoon for Reece, especially since Oakland has other players who would pitch in if Murray is sidelined.

OAK RB Marcel Reece - Week 9, 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 9 at Pittsburgh
Although he is third on the Raiders in receiving yards, Marcel Reece is averaging just 29 yards a game. That would be bearable if Reece was seeing extensive action as a runner, but he has just two rushing attempts in seven games. At least the versatile fullback has scored three touchdowns. However, in the bigger picture, Reece simply is not doing enough to help fantasy owners. He belongs on the waiver wire even during a week where six teams are on bye.

OAK RB Marcel Reece - 2015 Fantasy Football Outlook

It has been over 10 years since the Raiders had a winning season and when teams struggle, roster turnover is a constant. Fullback Marcel Reece is one of the few players who has been a Raider Nation regular in recent years. With many modern fullbacks doing nothing but blocking, Reece bucks the trend as an accomplished runner and receiver. Despite his unique skill set, previous Raider regimes have only made Reece a lead back in times of emergency. Will a new staff actually try to get more out of Marcel?

Fantasy Upside
Statistics are overblown in many cases, but when someone rushes for 103 yards and catches five passes for 90 yards (as Reece did back in 2012 against New Orleans), it is evidence they can handle a starring role. History has shown that if circumstances break right, Reece can be a very helpful in-season acquisition or daily fantasy contributor.

Fantasy Downside
The good news is new head coach Jack Del Rio and new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave like to run the football. The bad news is Oakland is grooming Latavius Murray as their new feature back, with Roy Helu playing in passing situations. The tag team of Murray and Helu looks promising. In other words, pretty much the only place you will see Reece play is at fullback. And with Helu and new receivers Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree on board, there will not be many passes for Marcel. He caught 52 passes in 2012, but will not approach that total in 2015.

Bottom Line
Now 30, Reece's long-running outside chance at becoming Oakland's number one back is pretty much over. If something shocking happens and he becomes an integral part of the offense (even for just a game or two), try to add him to your roster. His problem is utilization, not a decline in play.

OAK RB Marcel Reece - Week 17, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 17 – Marcel Reece at Denver Broncos

Marcel Reece did not have any carries in Week 16, but caught two passes for 20 yards. With limited touches, the talented Reece is unable to generate any fantasy publicity. His season will close quietly in Denver on Sunday.

OAK RB Marcel Reece - Week 16, 2014 Fantasy Football Outlook

Week 16 – Marcel Reece vs. Buffalo Bills
After scoring a touchdown in a Week 14 victory over San Francisco, the Raiders apparently decided to punish Marcel Reece for good play, as he did not catch a pass or receive a carry last Sunday. Latavius Murray has rightfully earned the lead role in the Oakland backfield, but seeing Reece running behind Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew is troubling. Nevertheless, it is the way it is, and Reece will not be helping fantasy teams during the playoffs as a result.
