Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice is in great shape and is as strong as he's ever been, according to reports. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice is in great shape and as strong as he has ever been, according to Liz Mathews of 710 ESPN Seattle. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll praised Rice after practice Monday and said the wide receiver is ready to go after undergoing surgery on both of his shoulders in the offseason. Seattle recently named Russell Wilson as the starting quarterback, and Rice is in line to be his go-to-target.

Analysis: Sidney Rice has been a disappointment since signing in Seattle due to a combination of injuries and poor quarterback play. It appears both areas will be improved in 2012, and Rice will finally have a chance to live up to his contract. Fantasy owners don't have a ton of faith in Rice right now, as his current ADP is incredibly low. If he plays all 16 games, or even comes close, he could be a huge value pick in fantasy football this season.
