Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice is officially listed as probable on the team's injury report for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys. Rice has been dealing with a knee injury. He missed practice on Wednesday and Thursday but was a limited participant in Friday's practice. Pete Carroll is confident his top receiver will play n the game. Golden Tate is also expected to return to the starting lineup after missing Seattle's season opener after suffering a knee injury in the preseason. The Seahawks have a tough matchup against a revamped Cowboys secondary.

Fantasy Impact: Sidney Rice will be limited more by his matchup than his injury. The Cowboys shut down the Giants' passing attack during the Wednesday night opener and should be able to do the same to the Seahawks.
