Sidney Rice fantasy update: Knee injury won't hinder fantasy status

Sam Sharpe-USA TODAY Sports

Sidney Rice's knee injury will not affect his ability to play in Sunday night's game vs. the 49ers. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice (knee) is listed as probable for Sunday night's game against the San Francisco 49ers. He was a full participant in practice on both Thursday and Friday and will start as usual.

Once considered a rising star and future go-to guy after coming over from the Minnesota Vikings in 2011, Rice was only targeted three times by quarterback Russell Wilson in Week 1.

Fantasy Impact: It looks as if Rice might well be behind both Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin on the depth chart in Seattle. That's bad news for his fantasy stock when you consider that Percy Harvin (hip) is expected to play by Week 7 or 8 depending on how much he progresses. This would surely be a crushing blow to Rice's fantasy value and he'll eventually be no more than a flex option at best.
