Oakland Raiders running back Marcel Reece will assume the workload for the team in Week 11. With Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson sidelined by injury, it will be up to Reece to get the ground game going. On Sunday, he will be faced with a desperate Saints defense.
The Raiders have been struggling offensively, but Reece has been a ray of light in an otherwise dark time for Oakland. With their star player sidelined, the team will be leaning on their backup tailback.
Fantasy Analysis: One of the best fantasy days for a running back in 2012 came against the Saints defense with Jamaal Charles. Reece is a big guy and hard runner -- he could have quite the fantasy day against New Orleans. If you were quick enough to snag Reece off the waiver wire, start him in Week 11.
He is a threat to get all-purpose yards as a runner and receiver. In addition to his size, he is highly athletic -- Reece will be a solid RB2 or flex option this week.
