Shark Bites

Raiders RB Marcel Reece (knee) has put in limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday.  His MRI came back negative, and it looks like Reece has a legitimate chance to play against the Chargers on Sunday night.  That'd put a serious dent in RB Rashad Jennings' fantasy appeal.  We'll have another Reece update tomorrow.

Recent Shark Bites

Raiders RB Marcel Reece has been suspended 4 games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing substances.  He'll miss the final game of this season and the first 3 games of the 2016 campaign.  Reece has always been an impressive athlete for a 6'1, 250-pounder but has never carved out a consistent enough role to be a reliable fantasy option.  He carried 10 times and caught 30 balls in 15 games this year.

Raiders RB Marcel Reece (foot) was back at practice on Tuesday.  His X-ray and MRI on Monday evidently came back clean.  Reece has quietly finished among the top 44 PPR RBs in 2 straight seasons, so he's worth a look at the end of your best-ball drafts.

Raiders RB Marcel Reece suffered a foot injury on Sunday and did not practice on Monday. He's scheduled to undergo an MRI and is out indefinitely, according to insider Jerry McDonald. It sounds like Reece might be dealing with a significant injury. Avoid him in fantasy drafts until we learn more.

Raiders HC Dennis Allen would not provide a timetable for RB Marcel Reece's return.  He only said that Reece had an MRI and that he will not need surgery.  It sounds like he avoided a serious injury but could still be looking at a multi-week absence.  Reece and Darren McFadden (hamstring) seem unlikely to play against the Raiders this Sunday, leaving Rashad Jennings as Oakland's feature back.

Raiders OC Greg Olson has gushed about RB Darren McFadden since taking the job back in mid-January.  But he's also excited to work with RB/FB hybrid Marcel Reece.  "He's got such a unique set of skills for a fullback," Olson said. "He's a college wide receiver. He'll present some matchup issues... To see him get out of the backfield and to spread out in some of the one-back sets and empty sets and look at the matchups you can get with him was exciting as well. He does have tremendous speed. He has very good hands. He has loose hips. He can run some of those option, choice routes that are matchup nightmares for defensive players."  Olson mentioned Reece as a possibility on 3rd downs.  Coming off a 52-catch season, Reece could be an asset for PPR leaguers again in 2013 -- even if Darren McFadden manages to stay healthy.
