re: Marcel Reece or Taiwan Jones?


Reece has been gobbled up in all my leagues. In one of them, someone spent $100 of his money on.


honestly, he is going to disappoint. He had a good game last week, but i dont think his value is up very much at all.

I'm not talking about top 10 numbers or anything close. I am talking about as an add in a depleted deep league as a bye week filler. Watching him, I think the guy has some talent.

Does anyone remember T Jones in that preseason game against the Saints? Dude has major talent, he's just a bit small for RB and Reece is a FB.

This hurts to say, but I'm thinking Jones will be a good play against the Saints next week. Like McCoy.

Edit: looked up the stats from that 2011 game.

OAK CAR YDS AVG TD LG
Jones 13 81 6.2 1 22

CSN Bay Area reported this afternoon that Taiwan practiced with the first team. I expect that he will get most of the carries but they'll use Reece plenty in the passing game. Neither is a bad play if you need the help.

I only play PPR. I will take the guy who gets the catches over the guy who runs the ball behind a shitty o line.

id take who ever gets the most touches. if reece isnt involved in the run game, he isnt any more valuable than he would be any other week. just 2 weeks even topping double figures

You don't think with McFadden out, Reece will get extra 3rd down duties?

I think Meyers is his main safety valve on 3rd down. I just don't see Reece getting thrown in to a new role when they have a capable backup ready to go. Using him at rb means they would then have to turn to their backup fb then you have a cluster frick of 2nd/3rd stringers.

Jones is a solid pass catcher too. Who knows how they handle it really. But he could play the same role as McFadden. He's explosive, can catch.

his 15-20 touches is a better chance to produce points than Marcel Reece's 3 catches 35 yards he averages per game

i wouldnt start either this week. but if im going to roster on, Jones is the guy imo

if he gets a solid amount of touches and looks decent i am starting his arse in place of DMC in week 11. I was so pissed when i looked at the schedule and saw DMC may miss that Saints game

re: Marcel Reece or Taiwan Jones?


Well haven't looked at my leagues but since Dwyer went down, Redman's been good, Murray still out I'll try to pick him up as my fourth rb.

In another DMC out so I need some depth since I'll be starting Leshoure now.

I would guess that T Jones would be the guy because Reece is obviously a hybrid FB/TE.

I agree that Jones will be the primary ball carrier, but I do think Reece will be the higher weekly scorer. Reece has already put up some nice games, now add in the fact that he will most likely take over all 3rd downs.



I was wrong when I said jones would probably be the main ball carrier. At least the Reece part was correct

I'm glad I picked up E. Sandwrs to play at flex rather than roll with Jones

I picked up reece in 2 leagues where I had Trent on bye. Not bad for a bye week fill in

Swapped Reece out for Jones in one league when they named him starter. Damn.

It looks like he boomed, at least for what your expectations should've been.
