Sidney Rice concussion: Cleared but will remained limited in practice, fantasy value on hold

Jonathan Daniel

It appears as though the Seahawks number one wide receiver is going to be okay. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice took a brutal hit on his game-winning touchdown against the Chicago Bears but has been cleared to practice. Head coach Pete Carroll said that Rice will remain limited however as a precaution.

Rice has remained healthy for the first time since 2009 so far this season, starting all twelve games with 43 catches for 623 yards and seven touchdowns. His 99 yards against Chicago were a Seattle-career high for Rice. The Seahawks take on the Arizona Cardinals in Week 14.

Fantasy Take: Just as Rice was starting to get going, with six touchdowns in his last seven games, he took a big hit and looked to be down for the count. It appears he's gotten lucky though. Not lucky is facing Patrick Peterson and the Cards defense, which is surprisingly very good.

Rice rates as a WR3/Flex play.
