Reece has tremendously improved his blocking over the last few games. He was especially instrumental in McFadden's 165-yard effort in their win against the Denver Broncos.
And by the way, he is still an awesome weapon in the passing game.
After making an occasional play in the beginning of the season, Raider offensive coordinator Hue Jackson has called his number a little more. Reece has rewarded the Raiders especially in the last couple of games.
Against the Broncos, Reece cleared the way for McFadden and had 7-39 running the ball. He also had a 19 yard catch in the Raider's blowout of the Broncos.
Against the Seahawks the fullback had 2-32 on the ground and 3-90 receiving while assisting with another 100-yard game for McFadden. On the season, Reece is averaging 5.7 yards per carry and 13.2 per catch.
How impressive is that?
But the way he's done it is more impressive.
He scored a 30-yard touchdown on a screen pass just like Larry Centers or Tom Rathman had done in their day. But then he did something the other two couldn't do by catching a 50-yard bomb.
A fullback going deep is a weapon the likes the NFL has never seen.
Al Davis has done it again!
