RB Marcel Reece (Oakland) Percent owned (ESPN): 11.3% With Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson both out with high ankle sprains, it was Marcel Reece, not Taiwan Jones, who carried the load. In fact, Jones saw just 2 carries behind some guy named Jeremy Stewart, who was 2nd on the team with 7. Reece rushed for just 48 yards, but also caught 7 passes for 56 yards. The Raiders were down for pretty much the whole game and could never get any rhythm in the running game, but Reece proved that he can produce no matter the situation. If the Raiders have to go pass heavy, Reece just picks up yards through the air. McFadden and Goodson are out indefinitely and Reece is a RB2/flex as long as he’s starting, so he should be owned universally. WR Cecil Shorts (Jacksonville) Percent owned (ESPN): 15.7% I don’t know how he’s done it, but Shorts seems to have emerged as a productive receiver in the wasteland known as Jacksonville. Gabbert still isn’t any good, but Shorts has caught 21 passes for 356 ya...
