Week 3- Sidney Rice will likely be going against borderline shutdown corner Tramon Williams in week 3 and is no more than low-end Flex option. Russell Wilson isn’t racking up the passing yards, and that likely will continue into his game with Packers.
Week 1 – Rice is listed as the #1 WR on the Seahawks depth chart as he heads into a week 1 matchup vs the Arizona Cardinals. We still have Rice as a low WR3 in most formats, and he should be started if there are no better options.
If you need advice on who to start and sit for week 1, log into the forums and post your team questions there, we are happy to assist.
We project Sidney Rice to beat his teammate Doug Baldwin in receiving yards for 2012, but he comes in ranked just under Baldwin due to his projected TD total, which is just 4. Expect Russell Wilson to look for bigger receivers in the red zone, but draft Rice as a #3 WR with upside as he could eclipse 1,000 receiving yards if he clicks with his QB this season.
