Marcel Reece, RB, Oakland Raiders
Marcel Reece, Oakland Raiders
Reece carried the ball 19 times for 103 yards against the New Orleans Saints. Whether he can be a trustworthy every-week starter in Darren McFadden’s absence will be determined by Reece’s ability to do damage on defenses outside of New Orleans, but Reece should be owned in all leagues.
Twenty-three touches (four receptions for 90 yards) are too many to be ignored.
Ronnie Hillman, Denver Broncos
ESPN’s Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen reported that Broncos running back Willis McGahee tore his MCL in Denver’s win over the San Diego Chargers. He should miss the remainder of the regular season, giving Hillman the opportunity to share a backfield with Peyton Manning for the foreseeable future.
That includes the fantasy playoffs.
Jalen Parmele, Jacksonville Jaguars
Parmele got 27 touches for the Jaguars against the Houston Texans defense. He rushed 24 times for 80 yards and caught three passes for three yards. He could have a big game in Week 12 against the Tennessee Titans, who have allowed at least one rushing touchdown to opposing running backs in seven of 10 games this season.
Also consider: Bryce Brown (Philadelphia Eagles), James Starks (Green Bay Packers), Vick Ballard (Indianapolis Colts) and Kendall Hunter (San Francisco 49ers).
