Week 12: vs Kansas City Chiefs

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. The Raiders have nothing going for them in this phase of the game - Darren McFadden is the 26th-ranked fantasy running back in the land with a total of 113/393/2 rushing and 29/183/0 receiving so far this year (he has scored all TWO of the team's rushing TDs generated during 2014). Oakland is dead last in the NFL averaging 63 rushing yards per game. Last week, though, Latavius Murray out-gained McFadden by 22 yards rushing on half as many carries (4/43/0 rushing with 3/16/0 receiving for Murray, vs. 8/21/0 rushing and zero receptions on thre targets for McFadden), and it appears that the winds of change may be blowing through the Oakland stable. According to speculation in the Oakland press, Murray may have a bigger role going forwards now that the 0-10 Raiders are building for 2015. Why not let the youngster have an extended audition at this point in the season? The Chiefs' rush D is a bend-but-don't-break unit that is first in the NFL with zero rushing scores allowed, but ranked 25th in the NFL averaging 124.4 yards given up per game. Marshawn Lynch and company managed to post 37/204/0 rushing last week after the Bills had 22/111/0 two weeks ago - neither scored, though. This is a tough matchup for the Raiders' ho-hum backfield.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs SEA (1 / 10 / 0 rush, 3 / 1 / 12 / 0 rec)

Reece only received two touches but he was very productive on both. His 12 yard reception was just good play design, and he went untouched until he was bumped out of bounds. His 10 yard run came on a draw play, and he made a nice cutback to hit the hole at just the right time. f

2014 Week 10 vs DEN (1 / 3 / 0 rush, 2 / 2 / 6 / 0 rec)

Reece saw three touches in the game, but not much opportunity to anything after he received the ball. He was stuffed on an inside draw, and chopped down on catch in the flats. His six yard reception was the only truly positive play he made.

2014 Week 11 vs SD (1 / 1 / 0 rush, 3 / 2 / -4 / 0 rec)

Reece was swallowed up by the defense every time he touched the ball. His negative yardage came from a desperation flip from Carr under pressure.
