Raiders Pro Bowl fullback Marcel Reece sees role diminishing

Raiders Pro Bowl fullback Marcel Reece sees role diminishing Reece, a three-time Pro Bowl selection at fullback, has watched his role diminish in an Oakland offense bursting with dynamic playmakers. Reece caught 14 passes and scored three touchdowns in Oakland’s first five games. Reece, 30, is a mainstay in Silver and Black — he joined the Raiders in 2008 (on the practice squad) and has been around ever since then. After mostly playing on special teams since arriving in Oakland in 2012, his role is stretching into new frontiers. Offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave even paid Olawale...

Raiders snap counts week 9 vs Steelers: Marcel Reece has season high

Each season, the fans call for Marcel Reece to be more a part of the offense. And each season, it doesn't really happen. That's just pretty much how it goes for a player like Reece, who while he is versatile, is still a bit of a tweener. That means he's usually not the absolute best option at any specific position, he's a specialty player who can provide a spark by being a mismatch as a receiver out of the backfield. This week he saw 28 snaps with the Raiders offense, which, believe it or not, is a season-high for him. Here are his totals for each week of the season: Week 1 vs Bengals - 21...

Don't look now but Raiders RB Latavius Murray leads AFC in rushing

Sometimes accomplishments happen quietly. That seems to be the case for Latavius Murray who as of right now is leading all AFC rushers with 630 yards on the season. And that's with a bye week in the middle. Up until this week, it was Le'Veon Bell who led the league in rushing and he still leads the AFC in yards per game (92.7). Bell is now out for the season. Granted the top five NFL rushers are all in the NFC. Here are those backs: 1. Adrian Peterson (MIN) - 7582. Devonta Freeman (ATL) - 7213. Chris Johnson (ARI) - 6764. Todd Gurley (STL) - 6645. Doug Martin (TB) - 643 Murray's 630 yards...

Raiders week 9 Pro Football Focus grades: Derek Carr star keeps rising

The Raiders leave Pittsburgh a loser after a hard fought 38-35 game that came right down to the end. As they usually do, Pro Football Focus put out their grades for the week. Here are a few of the more notable ones: Offense Derek Carr's +8.2 passing grade was his best of the year so far and was also the week's highest by any QB. Rodney Hudson (+3.1), Jackson (+2.5), and Howard (+1.8) all earned positive grades as run blockers. Hudson was rated the best player at the center position for week nine with a +2.9 overall grade. Performances like this justify the big money the Raiders have given...

Helmet-to-helmet hit on Murray could slow down Raiders offense

PITTSBURGH — The Raiders’ running game has been churning of late, but that task might be a lot harder next Sunday if Latavius Murray isn’t ready to go against Minnesota. Murray took a helmet-to-helmet hit from former Raiders safety Mike Mitchell in the third quarter and was knocked out of the game. Head coach Jack Del Rio said the running back is undergoing the league’s concussion protocol. Besides two fumbles Sunday, Murray ran well and had 96 yards on 17 carries. Fullback Jamize Olawale had a 19-yard touchdown run and fullback Marcel Reece added three runs for 21...
