Braylon Edwards and Sidney Rice were targeted nine times each during Sunday's game between the Seahawks and Cardinals. We break down the fantasy implications.

Braylon Edwards and Sidney Rice were targeted nine times each during Sunday's game between the Seattle Seahawks and the Arizona Cardinals. Edwards caught five passes for 43 yards on the night. Rice caught four passes for 36 yards and a touchdown. Doug Baldwin was targeted six times in the slot, but he managed just two catches for five yards.

Analysis: Edwards and Rice are both big, physically-gifted receivers, and if Sunday's game is any indication the two will be vying for attention from quarterback Russell Wilson this season. Assuming Wilson continues to improve, either could be intriguing fantasy options down the road. Complicating matters will be the return of Golden Tate, however. Tate is ostensibly the team's No. 3 receiver ahead of Edwards, but he sat Sunday due to a knee injury. Be sure to keep an eye on the Seahawks next week to see how the depth chart shakes out before making any roster decisions.
