2013 Fantasy Football Profile: Marcel Reece Fights an Uphill Battle In Oakland
Name: Marcel Reece
Team: Oakland Raiders
Position: Running Back
Years Pro: 4
Draft stock: (Dropping) The Raiders are going to be so bad this season that fantasy football owners are even hesitant to take Darren McFadden, so the Reece bandwagon is all but empty. In addition, Oakland lost starting left tackle Jared Veldheer to a torn triceps this week and he won’t be in action for at least three or four months. Much like the Black and Silver, Reece isn’t getting much love.
2012 fantasy impact: One of fantasy football’s best kept secrets, Reece had a career year in 2012 as he was a total dual-threat out of the backfield. More of a fullback than anything, Reece rushed for just 271 yards and didn’t get in the endzone on the ground. However, the Raiders’ back made his money in the passing game as he had 496 yards receiving and one touchdown through the air.
Best-case scenario: Reece is the lone beneficiary of the Raiders’ woeful offense as the hybrid runner has over 1,000 yards from scrimmage for the first time in his NFL career.
Worst-case scenario: Oakland can’t even manage to get more than five first downs a game let alone give Reece the appropriate amount of touches.
Where you should draft him: I wouldn’t get too adventurous with Reece considering he has yet to emerge as a fullback who can produce on a weekly basis. Yet, he’s a rather safe bet once the 14th round rolls along.
