Sidney Rice, WR, Seattle Seahawks Player Profile Height/Weight: 6-4/202 Birthdate: 9/1/1986 School: South Carolina FANTASY FOOTBALL ANALYSIS If you drafted Rice late in 2012 leagues, you were probably thrilled to get the production you received. Rice hadn’t made it through more than 10 games let alone 16 since his breakout season with the Vikings in 2009. That year he nabbed 83 receptions for 1300 yards and 8 scores. In 2013 he caught 50 balls for 750 yards and 7 scores. And I think that’s about right for Rice. Does he have better skills than those numbers suggest? Yes, he does, but he’s in an offense that runs first and often. The one area I could see improvement would be his touchdown total. He’s a big enough threat in the end-zone at 6-4 to score in the double-digits. But I think because of the offensive philosophy, his upside is minimal. Not to mention there will be a new mouth to feed, one that’s going to be extremely hungry in Percy Harvin. The one thing that makes us not worry about Harvin in this offense is his flexibility to play all over the field. Sidney Rice does not come with this particular set of skills however and should not be viewed as much more than a WR3. The other thing to be worried about when going after Rice is still his health. Even though he played in all 18 games for the Seahawks this past season including the playoffs, he was seen on January 14th of this year on crutches. This would have been the Monday after they lost to the Atlanta Falcons. Not much is known as to why he had them but we are sure it was precautionary. Still though, he dealt with a number injuries all season and is not a great bet to repeat finishing in all 16 games again. I would look elsewhere in drafts, as the WR pool is deep.
