Sidney Rice and Zach Miller missed Thursday practice for the Seahawks. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice (knee) and tight end Zach Miller (foot) were out of practice on Thursday with injuries and their status for week 2 against the Dallas Cowboys could be in question. This coming after news that Golden Tate was able to participate fully in practice and could start Sunday over Braylon Edwards, but now Seattle may need someone to start for Rice if he's unable to go. If Miller misses the game, it could increase the value of Evan Moore.

Fantasy Analysis: Another week and another injury report for Rice, who had already recovered from offseason surgery on both shoulders. His fantasy value was already going to be down this week against a tough Cowboys defense that held Victor Cruz and Hakeem Nicks in check week 1, but it would really hurt Russell Wilson and the Seattle offense if Rice is out.
