Week 3: at New England Patriots

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Oakland's backs are stuck in starting-rookie-quarterback Hell entering Week 3 - Derek Carr, the starting quarterback, is actually the lead rusher so far this year, with 5/57/0 to his credit. With Maurice Jones-Drew nursing a surgically repaired hand, Darren McFadden has fallen on his face (again) with 16/52/1 rushing and 3/37/0 receiving to his 'credit'. Oakland is 32nd in the league in rushing attempts so far this year and 31st in rushing yards. Look elsewhere for your starters, fantasy owners! The Patriots are tied for 21st in the NFL after two games, averaging 122.5 rushing yards allowed per game, with one rushing score allowed. They held an Adrian Peterson-less Vikings to 19/54/0 rushing last week, but coughed up 38/191/1 rushing to divisional rival Miami during Week 1. This unit has swung wildly to open 2014. This looks like a tough matchup for Carr and McFadden - the Raiders can't do much on the ground this year so far.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs NYJ (1 / 0 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / 1 / 0 rec)

The Raiders tried to get Reece involved early but he was very unimpressive. He had three targets and a carry in the first three drives for the Raiders and then didn't get another touch. Both of his catches came in the flats with one man to beat and both times he was taken down by the first tackler. The same thing happened on his only carry, off right tackle. Reece capped his performance by dropping his final target, again in the flats.

2014 Week 2 vs HOU (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 11 / 0 rec)

Reece had only one touch, but he broke a tackle and ran over a corner for an 11 yard gain and a first down.

Raiders | Marcel Reece could see touches (Thu Sep 11, 01:06 AM) - Oakland Raiders FB Marcel Reece could see an increase in touches in Week 2 against the Houston Texans if RB Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is forced out of action.

Our View: While Reece can see some work, we'd expect Darren McFadden to get the bulk of it if Maurice Jones-Drew is out. Reece might be worth a spot on deeper rosters in case McFadden implodes or gets hurt, but he isn't someone to start this week.
