Fantasy Football Start 'Em, Sit 'Em, Week 11: Marcel Reece Should Be In Your Lineup

This week’s Fantasy Football Start ‘Em and Sit ‘Em will be pretty short. Start Marcel Reece. Given the Saints’ propensity to give up yards to living players (Michael Turner doesn’t count), I can’t play with the distribution enough to suggest he should be out of the lineup. Unless the Raiders were sandbagging us last week with how they are going to distribute carries, Reece is gold with this matchup. Even if he gets just 50% of expected production from Raiders’ backs, he is a mid-RB2. I’ve got him at RB11, because I think he’ll get a little more than that.

The running back rankings this week have a clear top 5 that are head and shoulders above the others in projection, then a muddled mess because of bad matchups for some top players (Gore, Forte among them), some great matchups for guys further down the list (Benjarvus Green-Ellis and Woodhead, the Saints running backs).
