Raiders | Two RBs probable

Fri, 30 Nov 2012 18:58:50 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Taiwan Jones (ankle) was listed as a limited participant in practice Friday, Nov. 30, while FB Marcel Reece (hamstring, quadriceps) went through a full practice session. Each back is listed as probable for the Week 13 game against the Cleveland Browns.

McFadden is listed as questionable, or officially has a 50-50 chance of suiting up. Mike Goodson (ankle) is also on the road to recovery, further decreasing the values of Jones and Reece.

Raiders | OC explains why Taiwan Jones not being used

Sat, 17 Nov 2012 06:55:16 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Taiwan Jones had just two carries in Week 10 with RBs Darren McFadden (ankle) and Mike Goodson (ankle) out of the lineup and he is expected to see limited touches again in Week 11. Offensive coordinator Greg Knapp said he needs to see Jones improve in pass protection. "We told him going into the game that the two things that we have to see improvement on is ball security as well as assignments," Knapp said. "Assignments not so much in the run game but in the pass protection and in the route running. That's still a part of his game that he's still improving on. We got to keep in mind, he's still a young player. I've got to see (that) in practice first, consistently. And I haven't seen it consistently in practice, and that's what we look for, is perfection in practice."

Raiders | Taiwan Jones sees few touches

Sun, 11 Nov 2012 17:03:41 -0800

Oakland Raiders RB Taiwan Jones managed just two carries for six yards, and one catch for seven yards, in Week 10 against the Baltimore Ravens despite the face his team was down RBs Darren McFadden (ankle) and Mike Goodson (ankle).

Fantasy Tip: Jones looked to be a decent grab off the waiver wire this past week, but fantasy owners are likely to return him right back to the scrap heap after this goose egg. FB Marcel Reece saw 20 touches, and was so-so. He is likely to carry the mail in Week 11 against the New Orleans Saints if McFadden and Goodson are out again.

Raiders | Taiwan Jones, Marcel Reece splitting reps

Sat, 10 Nov 2012 04:38:08 -0800

Oakland Raiders RBs Taiwan Jones and FB Marcel Reece (hamstring) have been splitting first-team reps in practice this week. Jones said he is looking forward to having an expanded role. "Of course I'm very excited," Jones said. "You've gotta be patient in this league. I've been waiting for my opportunity and it's here, so I'm going to try to make the most of it."

Fantasy Tip: Look for Jones and Reece to see plenty of time in Week 10. Jones may see more carries at running back; however, Reece is a more versatile threat and will see his share of targets in the passing game.

"I feel like I've been waiting forever (for Jones to play a bigger role). I can't wait. He does amazing things in practice and he's by far the fastest person on the field and he will be the fastest person on the field on Sunday. And not that you want to see guys get banged up, but I'm excited about the opportunity he's getting," QB Carson Palmer said.
