2011 Fantasy Football Scouting Report: Sidney Rice, WR, Seattle Seahawks

2010 Stats
17 rec. / 280 yds.
2 TDs
2011 Projected
67 rec. / 955 yds.
7 TDs

Rice heads to Seattle where he's looking for a fresh start after missing most of last season recovering from hip surgery. He played in just six games with Minnesota and finished the season with 17 catches for 280 yards and two touchdowns, a far cry from his breakout season in 2009 (83 rec., 1,312 yards and eight TDs). The biggest concern about Rice is whether he can hold up for 16 games - he's missed 16 games during his four-year career. Rice has shown he has the ability to be an elite NFL wide receiver, but his injury history and the quarterback situation in Seattle are concerning. Consider Rice is a number three/fringe number two fantasy football wide receiver.
