Reece’s Conversion To Fullback Key For Raiders

ALAMEDA (AP) — Oakland Raiders fullback Marcel Reece tends to brush off individual achievements with a wave of his hand. When the subject turns to his backfield partner, Darren McFadden, Reece puffs his chest out like a proud parent.

It’s difficult to imagine where the Raiders would be without either player.

While McFadden has run his way into the team’s record books with what is already the sixth-best season by a Raiders running back, it could be argued that Reece has been equally important to Oakland’s resurgence.

In addition to being McFadden’s lead blocker, Reece is also the Raiders’ fourth-leading receiver and is tied for the second-most touchdown catches on the team.
