PPR, Reece.

Standard, Taiwan.

Only play Reece, though. If Taiwan performs well then I think next week you can maybe start him.

This

If Jones gets a decent amount of carries this week you could consider using him against hte Saints, next week. He's really fast and could hit a long one on that sad Run D.

re: Marcel Reece or Taiwan Jones?


i would say if you own DMAC roster both if possible, but with that said i find it hard to believe they make Reece a primary ball carrier. He is a hybrid te/fb that RARELY carries the ball. I am not sure if it is his skill set to be a primary ball carrier. He is not familiar with that role in the offense and i think that can lead to some limitations playing him as a hb.

I think some people are forgetting that Jones was leading the battle for primary backup in the preseason and looked fairly good. From what i remember he got hurt in the preseason which allowed Goodson to snatch the role. I have both DMAC and Jones and i am trying to aquire Reece, but i am not comfortable starting either until i see their usage this week.

Jones and Goodson were backup RBs for a reason. As in, they sub for DMC. Reece has never been in the conversation

Reece has his role in the offense as an H Back type.

Simple deduction tells me Jones will be the feature RB if Goodson and DMC can't go.

Who knows

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.

That's kind of what I was thinking. Any idea on goal line duties?

agreed!

I love fantasy pundits how they are so quick to pump up Reece. Last week he got passing targets because they were getting throttled and were in catch up mode. To say that they take their fullback and throw him in at rb is a bit far fetched for me.

But like i said i am waiting a week to see what they do because i have given up trying to forecast what coaches will do

Reece has a little value in PPR. He will catch 3 or 4 balls a week. He has 1 carry on the year for 0 yards, which came in the first game.

At the same time, Jones hasnt been a primary ball carrier in any game since he entered the league.

I think Reece will get the GL work, too. That is just me speculating, though. I believe he has received some GL carries in the past when M. Bush missed some games.

It's going to be interesting.

Reece has more skills than a typical fullback, and he has the body to withstand the load. Should have extra value in PPR, as noted.

Jones could take any play to the house, which makes him interesting too.

Reece has 34 carries in 2.5 seasons. No rushing TDs.

He is 6'3' 240 compared to Jones' 6' 195, so he could see the goal line work due to sheer size. Who knows?

got a rushing touchdown two years ago. Not sure if that was out of the Tailback or Fullback position, though. But, I definitely want to say he has seen some goal line work in the past as the tailback.

I was just looking at RT sports stats, they have him for no rushing TDs. Who knows


Toula, I would probably do the same.
