Sidney Rice injury update: Knee injury shouldn't impact his low-level upside

Bob Levey

Sidney Rice isn't 100 percent, as he is dealing with a knee issue. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seahawks receiver Sidney Rice (knee) is probable for Sunday's game against the Titans. He sat out of practice on Friday, but is expected to play.

He's been inconsistent for most of the season, which is a common occurence for just about every Seattle pass-catcher. He's caught just 10 balls for 146 yards, but has scored twice.

It was also a rough Week 5 for Rice since he caught just one ball for eight yards. Yep, that's a goose egg in fantasy leagues. The Seahawks are built on defense and their running game, so it's not like Rice is going to have tremendous games week in and week out.

Fantasy impact: Owners were very badly burned last week in what looked to be a friendly matchup. This week, he'll match up with the pick-happy Alterraun Verner and Russell Wilson might be less inclined to look Rice's way. His knee isn't the issue here and fantasy owners can probably do better on the waiver wire. Besides Wilson and Marshawn Lynch, this offense is pretty much hands-off material in most leagues.
