ALAMEDA (AP) — Marcel Reece isn’t putting much value behind the numbers he’s had in the two games since taking over as the Oakland Raiders’ starting running back.

He might be the only one.

Oakland’s primary fullback the past two seasons, Reece has amassed nearly 300 yards in total offense while providing some much-needed stability to a backfield that has been plagued by injuries this year. Last week against New Orleans, he fell 10 receiving yards shy of joining Hall of Famer Marcus Allen as the only players in franchise history to have 100 yards rushing and 100 yards receiving in one game.

Just don’t expect him to make a big deal about it.

With the Raiders mired in a three-game losing streak, Reece shrugs off his achievements as little more than stats on paper.
