Marcel Reece: Released by Seattle
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reece was released by the Seahawks on Saturday.

Entering his eighth season, Reece could be one of those guys to land somewhere else based solely off his tenured career. The long-time Raider was unable to edge out Tre Madden for the starting fullback spot but could hold value as a veteran leader in another locker room. As far as his fantasy value is concerned, that seems to be close to nonexistent at the moment.

Seahawks' Marcel Reece: Not listed on Wednesday's injury report
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reece (foot) does not appear on the Seahawks' injury report Wednesday, John Boyle of the Seahawks' official site reports.

Reece bruised his foot in last weekend's tilt with the Lions. However, after practicing both Tuesday and Wednesday, he appears on track to suit up Sunday against the Falcons.

Seahawks' Marcel Reece: Practices Tuesday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reece (foot) is practicing Tuesday and looks to be in good shape according to head coach Pete Carroll, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

Reece suffered a foot injury during Saturday's wild-card win over the Lions, but it appears as if the veteran will be ready for Saturday's tilt with the Falcons. Look for more updates to come throughout the week. Will Tukuafu (concussion) landed on injured reserve earlier in the season, leaving the Seahawks with no backup fullback, should Reece be ruled out.

Seahawks' Marcel Reece: Suffers foot injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Reece suffered a foot injury during Saturday's playoff win over the Lions, and although coach Pete Carroll said it wasn't a break, Reece's status for this Saturday's divisional round game against the Falcons is uncertain, Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

Reece got his foot stepped on, which resulted in soreness after the incident Saturday. Despite not suffering a break, Reece may be limited during practice this week, and his status for Saturday sits in question. As Seattle's starting fullback, Reece's biggest fantasy impact comes in the form of his blocking for running back Thomas Rawls.

Seahawks' Marcel Reece: Signs with Seahawks
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Seahawks signed Reece on Monday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Reece opened the season needing to log three of the four remaining absences to fulfill his suspension for a violation of the NFL's policy on performance enhancing drugs. Once completed, though, the Raiders cut the fullback loose on Sep. 26, and he's remained on the free-agent market in the meantime. Reece is likely only a stop-gap option for starting FB Will Tukuafu, who became entrenched in the concussion protocol this weekend.

Marcel Reece: Released by Raiders
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Raiders have released Reece (suspension).

With Reece poised to come off the suspension that had sidelined him to date this season, the Raiders instead elected to release the veteran fullback, who should re-surface elsewhere before long.

Raiders' Marcel Reece: Draws four-game suspension
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Raiders running back Marcel Reece caught both of his targets for 16 yards in Sunday's Week 4 matchup against the Bears.
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by Ruben Palacios | CBS Sports Staff

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
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

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.

Darren McFadden, Marcel Reece take lesser role for Raiders
by Chris Cwik |

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.

Marcel Reece leads Raiders backfield Week 13
by Larry Hartstein |

Fullback Marcel Reece was the most productive member of the Raiders' backfield Week 13 at St. Louis. Reece ran four times for 12 yards and caught six of eight targets for 48 yards.

Running back Darren McFadden carried 11 times for 27 yards and caught both his targets for 18 yards. Running back Maurice Jones-Drew rushed five times for 21 yards and secured three of four targets for 23 yards.

Oakland played without impressive second-year back Latavius Murray, who's recovering from a concussion. The Raiders face the 49ers in Week 14.

Raiders carries will be determined by 'flow' of the game
by Chris Cwik |

The Raiders will distribute their carries based on the "flow" of the game on Sunday, according to the San Jose Mercury News.

Latavius Murray has been ruled out due to a concussion, leaving Marcel Reece, Maurice Jones-Drew and Darren McFadden in the backfield. Head coach Tony Sparano confirmed that carries would depend on both "flow" and the game situation. It's unclear which player will get the start.

Raiders RB Marcel Reece totals 45 yards in win vs. Chiefs
by R.J. White |

Raiders running back Marcel Reece rushed for 37 yards on eight carries and caught just one of his five targets for eight yards in his team's 24-20 win over the Chiefs in Week 12.

The Raiders rushing attack received a much-needed spark from Latavius Murray, who scored touchdowns on two of his first three carries. However, Murray missed the entire second half with a concussion, allowing Reece to play a role as Darren McFadden and Maurice Jones-Drew sputtered. The Raiders will look for a second straight win in Week 13 against the Rams.

Raiders' Marcel Reece, Maurice Jones-Drew do little Week 9
by Chris Cwik |

Raiders backup running backs Marcel Reece and Maurice Jones-Drew did little Week 9 against the Seahawks.

Reece carried the ball just one time, picking up 10 yards. Reece also caught one pass for 12 yards. Jones-Drew had two carries, but finished with -2 yards. Jones-Drew did manage to catch one pass for 11 yards. 

Both players will look for more Week 10 against the Broncos.
