Marcel Reese (RB, OAK) - Waiver Wire Pickups

Ben Speed Page -

Baller Move:  Stash in deeper leagues/All PPR leagues.

Analysis: I mentioned Marcel Reece earlier, and he once again becomes worth a look this week for most owners, as he is still available in over 90% of leagues. Furthermore, Rashad Jennings left the game in Week Five after suffering a hamstring injury, and his status is up in the air for Week Six. With Darren McFadden also likely to miss out, Marcel Reece stands to get the majority of touches in Week Six against the Chiefs. Reece proved last season he can step in effectively for Run-DMC, racking up 495 yards and 23 receptions in a three-and-a-half game span after McFadden was injured against Tampa Bay. In Week Five, Reece managed 32 yards on seven carries, and caught all three of his targets for an additional 57 yards against the Chargers on Sunday night/Monday morning. These are respectable numbers, especially considering Rashad Jennings started and handled the majority of the workload for the entire first half before being pulled out. Reece is a monster in the passing game, and has a chance to run over would-be tacklers every time he touches the ball. Should Marcel Reece end up getting the start, he is worth a flex in PPR leagues even against the stingy Chiefs.
