Sidney Rice is probable for Week 3 against the Packers. We break down the fantasy implications.
Seattle Seahawks WR Sidney Rice (rest) is listed as probable for Monday's game against the Green Bay Packers and should be ready to go. Rice was not listed on the team's injury report until Saturday, where he did not practice. It's assumed that the Seahawks just gave him an extra day off after taking a beating against the Cowboys in Week 2.
Fantasy Impact: Rice makes a regular appearance on injury reports, so it's no surprise that he shows up even when there's no apparent injury. Rice had only three catches for 33 yards in Week 2. Seattle's passing offense is still going through growing pains with rookie QB Russell Wilson, so Rice is an iffy fantasy play this week even with the Packers' weak secondary.
