Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 11 vs DET (2 / 2 / 0 rush, 1 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Reece's only two carries of the day came on back-to-back plays inside the three-yard line. The first one he picked up two yards and was inches from getting into the end zone. On the second, he was stood up lost half a yard. Reese drew a pass interference call on his only downfield target.
2015 Week 9 vs PIT (3 / 21 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)
Reece had one early carry and then split time in the backfield with Olawale during the fourth quarter after Murray had left the game with a concussion.
2015 Week 5 vs DEN (1 / 6 / 0 rush, 8 / 7 / 49 / 1 rec)
Reece scored the game's only offensive touchdown on a short reception. The Raiders faked a handoff to Murray up the middle and Reece slipped out of the backfield uncovered after faking a lead block. Carr hit him for the easy two-yard touchdown reception. Reece also regularly lined up outside as a wide receiver and was targeted with quick screen passes from Carr. He also ran some more typical wide receiver routes when lined up outside and had a nice gain on a comeback route.
2015 Week 3 vs CLE (1 / 1 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 55 / 0 rec)
Reece had only one catch on the day, but it was a big one. He caught the ball about 10-yards downfield and immediately broke a pair of tackles and was off to the races for a 55-yard gain.
2015 Week 2 vs BAL (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 2 / 1 / 16 / 0 rec)
Reece made a diving 16-yard grab early but had a quiet game overall.
2015 Week 1 vs CIN (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 4 / 3 / 26 / 2 rec)
Reece was not a big part of the game plan before catching a pair of garbage time touchdowns late in the 4th quarter. He showed off his smooth route running and incredible change of direction for such a big man on both of his touchdowns. The first, he ran a short angle route cutting back towards the middle of the field and finding a hole in the Bengals zone defense for an 11-yard touchdown catch. The second touchdown came on an option route where he faked like he was going to stop in the middle of the field then quickly spun towards the outside and caught the ball on the run for a 9-yard touchdown. It was the type of route typically ran by a small slot WR, not a 250-pound fullback.
