2014 Outlook: Deep-league OnlyLast updated on Jul-14-2014 by Brad Kruse
Kearse is 6-foot-1, 209 pounds and was able to deliver on some big plays for Seattle last year. After Rice was out with an injury, Kearse earned 25 of his 38 targets. He suffers from the fact that not many wide receivers are going to be viable for Seattle, so being out of the starting line-up severely limits his potential. He could replace Golden Tate's role in the offense, but with Percy Harvin expected to play this year, targets are going to be tough to come by for this athletic prospect. He has no fantasy value without a serious injury ahead of him on the depth chart.
Seahawks wide receiver Sidney Rice has decided to retire, a source has told Pro Football Talk. The source adds that Rice's history of concussion is the foremost reason why he will call it a career at 27.
Rice was a fantasy star with Brett Favre and the Vikings in 2009. He caught 83 passes for 1,312 and eight touchdowns. But he missed 25 games over the following four seasons, and he suffered a concussion in 2010 and 2011. Rice also missed significant time after hip surgery in 2010 and tore an ACL last year.
Outside of 2009, Rice's best season was 2012: 50 catches for 748 yards and seven scores.
Rice was hardly a lock to make the Seahawks' roster, and this sounds like a smart decision given his lengthy medical chart. The team will move forward with Percy Harvin, Doug Baldwin, and Jermaine Kearse as its top three wideouts.
