News: Reece did not carry the ball in last Sunday's loss to the Texans, but did haul in his lone target for 11 yards. Impact: Even with Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) sidelined, Reece was not a factor in the team's rushing attack, as he once again served primarily as a blocker against Houston. The expectation was that Reece, who reported to camp at a slimmed-down 238 pounds, would be more involved in the team's passing game this season. However, offensive coordinator Greg Olson has not made it a priority to get Reece the ball, so even if Jones-Drew ends up sitting again this week, Reece will not be worthy of consideration in most leagues.(RotoWire, )

News: Reece carried the ball once for no gain and caught two passes for one yard in Sunday's loss to the Jets. Impact: Needless to say, it was a disappointing 2014 opener for Reece, but his performance was just a microcosm of the Raiders' offensive struggles as a whole. The team totaled all of 158 yards in the game. He could see more opportunities on the ground this week if Maurice Jones-Drew (hand) is forced to sit, but until he earns more touches, Reece will make for a difficult hold in fantasy leagues. That said, the slimmed-down Reece should at least continue to see the occasional dumpoff pass, even if his opportunities on the ground remain limited.(RotoWire, )
