Seahawks coach Pete Carroll isn't saying how many snaps Terrell Owens will play Saturday, but says Owens will be on the field early in the game. We break down the fantasy implications.
Seattle Seahawks coach Pete Carroll isn't saying how many snaps Terrell Owens will play on Saturday against Denver, but did say the veteran receiver would be on the field early in the game. Owens has been practicing at the flanker position behind Sidney Rice, while Braylon Edwards has been mostly with the second-team offense behind Golden Tate. Rice will not play against Denver, which could mean a start for Owens.
Analysis: Owens and Edwards would seem to have a limited fantasy value at this point but that would change if Rice isn't ready once the regular season starts. Owens reported to camp in great shape but physical condition has never been the biggest concern with Owens. He could work himself into a starting spot but, for now, it appears that Rice and Tate will be the players fantasy owners will want to look at should they decided to draft a Seattle receiver.
