Golden Tate leads Seahawks in receiving yards, leaves fantasy owners wanting a score

Otto Greule Jr

The Seahawks receiving touchdowns were spread around, with Sidney Rice, Zach Miller, and Kellen Davis each getting one, but Tate was held out. We break down the fantasy implications.

No single Seattle Seahawks pass-catcher had a huge game Thursday against the Arizona Cardinals, but the attention was spread out enough that several guys had value. Wide receiver Sidney Rice and tight ends Zach Miller and Kellen Davis all caught touchdown passes as Seattle beat Arizona 34-22.

Golden Tate actually led the Seahawks in receiving yards, catching four passes for 77 yards. Rice caught three for 50 yards, but his first-quarter touchdown started the game's scoring. Miller led the team in receptions with five, totaling 40 yards. Davis' one-yard score came on his only catch of the game.

Fantasy impact: This game highlighted what fantasy owners can expect out of the Seattle passing game. There is a lot of middling production, little chance at a big game. At least until wide receiver Percy Harvin makes his way back to the team, there isn't enough separation between Tate, Rice, and Miller (and, for that matter, Doug Baldwin, who was quiet on Thursday) to expect any one of them to do much more than any other member of the group.
