    Raiders' Marcel Reece: Draws four-game suspension

    Reece has been suspended four games for violating the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs, CSN Bay Area reports. Reece, who will sit out Sunday's season finale against the Chiefs, is thus eligible to return to action after the Raiders' third game of the 2016 season. In the meantime, he can participate in all of the team's offseason and preseason practices and games.

    Raiders' Marcel Reece: Hauls in three passes

    Reece caught all three of his targets for 37 yards in Sunday's loss to the Packers. Reece caught multiple passes during garbage time late in the game, as the Raiders were trying to move down the field with under two minutes left. He really didn't play a part in the game prior to the last couple of drives, and he likely won't have a large role moving forward. Reece shouldn't be considered a fantasy option at this point.

    Raiders' Marcel Reece: Caught three passes

    Reece rushed for four yards on one carry and added three catches for 19 yards in Sunday's loss to the Chiefs. After receiving just four touches over the last three weeks combined, the pass-catching fullback received four in Sunday's game alone. Reece has always been known as a great receiver out of the backfield, but his three catches were due to game flow and the fact that the Raiders were trailing late in the game. He seems to get more time in obvious passing situations, but he doesn't hold much fantasy value at this time. The Raiders' have a lot of options on offense, and Reece is ultimately near the bottom of the list.

    Raiders' Marcel Reece: Could see expanded role next week

    Reece rushed thrice for 21 yards and was not targeted in the passing game Sunday in Pittsburgh, but he could get more action in the coming weeks if starter Latavius Murray (concussion) can't play. Reece is nominally a fullback, but he has served as a very competent fill-in at the running back position before. The 30-year-old would be especially useful in PPR formats if given an expanded role, as he has demonstrated sure hands out of the backfield throughout his career.

    Raiders' Marcel Reece: Hauls in Three Passes

    Reece caught all three of his targets for 15 yards in Sunday's win over the Chargers. Reece continues to see a handful of targets from week-to-week, but he doesn't play enough snaps to make him a realistic fantasy option. The pass-catching fullback should continue to be a factor in the Raiders' passing game, but would only provide worthy production in the deepest of PPR leagues.

    Raiders FB Marcel Reece hauls in seven passes in Week 5 loss

    Marcel Reece rushed for six yards on one carry and hauled in seven of his eight targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' Week 5 loss to Denver. Reece has seen just two carries on the ground in five games, but the Raiders really seem to enjoy his skills in the passing game. He plays a ton of snaps on third-downs and in obvious passing situations, and he led the team in catches on Sunday with seven. His eight targets were second only to Michael Crabtree's nine, and he should continue to see increased snaps in passing situations moving forward. Through five games, Reece has 14 catches, including three touchdowns through the air.

    Two-touchdown game a distant memory for Raiders RB Marcel Reece

    Raiders running back Marcel Reece caught both of his targets for 16 yards in Sunday's Week 4 matchup against the Bears. Reece was actually the Raiders third-leading receiver Sunday, but he's been very quiet over the last three games after catching two touchdowns in Week 1. He's a good pass-catcher out of the backfield, but now that Roy Helu is healthy and in the mix, Reece will continue to see limited action.

    Raiders FB Marcel Reece catches two TDs in loss

    Raiders fullback Marcel Reece was the lone bright spot in the team's lopsided loss to the Bengals on Sunday. Reece was targeted four times in the loss, catching three passes for 26 yards and two touchdowns. He scored on two fourth-quarter receptions when the game was long decided. The Raiders will play the Ravens Week 2.

    Marcel Reece only useful in PPR leagues

    Raiders running back Marcel Reece has been a difference-maker in PPR leagues before, catching 52 passes in 2012, so his back-to-back games with at least six catches are worth noting in Fantasy, especially since he scored on one of his seven grabs Week 14 against San Francisco. With the emergence of Latavius Murray as the primary ball carrier, Reece probably isn't versatile enough for standard-league use, but he's no less relevant than, say, Roy Helu. For more major takeaways from Week 14, be sure to check out my latest post to the Fantasy Football Today blog.

    Darren McFadden, Marcel Reece take lesser role for Raiders

    Raiders running backs Darren McFadden and Marcel Reece took on lesser roles Week 14 against the 49ers. Latavius Murray got the bulk of the work, picking up 23 carries. McFadden was limited to just four carries. He gained 5 yards. He was not targeted in the passing game. Reece had just two carries for 2 yards. He was a much bigger threat in the passing game, gaining 64 yards on seven receptions. He managed to haul in a 9 yard touchdown in the third quarter. Both players will look for more Week 15 against the Chiefs.
