Marcel Reece expected to play in NFC Divisional Playoffs
Marcel Reece (bruised foot) was a doubt for the Divisional Playoff round against the Falcons, but should be good to go. Reece has two carries for 0 yards this season, but is a huge part of the running game with his blocking at fullback.
The fear for Reece was that he broke his foot and head coach Pete Carroll dismissed this fear yesterday. Reece did have a 31-yard reception this season, one of his five catches for 72 yards, but his main job is to fuel the running game that had 177 yards in the Wild Card round. Atlanta ranked 25th against fantasy RB this season and Reece will have to help Thomas Rawls and Co. keep the ball from MVP candidate Matt Ryan and the Falcons.
