It is hard to recommend any Raider as a sleeper this week. Miami's defense is playing great, and the Raiders will be playing with their backup receiving corp. For the record, I don't consider Michael Bush or Carson Palmer sleepers. The rest of the Raiders are fair game though.
After a little thought though, the Raiders sleeper is clear. It is Marcel Reece. The versatile back has taken on a big load with all of the offensive injuries. Last week, Reece caught five passes for 92 yards.
It is safe to assume he will be an active member of the passing game this week. He should also get a few carries. With the lack of depth at RB, someone has to take some carries to give Bush a breather. Two weeks ago, Reece had six carries for 45 yards.
Reece has a solid chance of breaking 100 total yards in this game. So be a pioneer, and be the only person starting a fullback in your league.
How many total yards will Reece have?
