Player Outlook
A year after taking Skyy Moore with the 54th pick in the 2022 draft, the Chiefs selected Rice with the 55th pick in 2023. The best format for drafting Rice is in rookie-only drafts of Dynasty leagues, where you don't have to be as concerned with him picking up Andy Reid's offense early in the year because not many rookies have. In that format, Rice is worth a Round 2 pick. In redraft, and he's a very late dart throw at best. The expectation is that he'll enter the season as WR4 at best, and there is a chance he is behind Justin Watson to begin the year as well. Once he is fully acclimated, Rice is the closest thing the Chiefs have to a traditional X receiver and could be the long-term answer there.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Six catches in Super Bowl

    Rice recorded six receptions (on eight targets) for 39 yards in Sunday's 25-22 overtime win over the 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII. He added two rushes for five yards. Rice finished second on the team in targets behind Travis Kelce, which turned into an uninspiring yardage total. However, Rice notched a pair of impactful receptions on the Chiefs' game-winning drive in overtime, the latter of which was a 13-yard gain on third down to get the offense into 49ers territory. The effort concluded a strong second half of the season for the rookie pass catcher, as he commanded at least eight targets in eight of Kansas City's last 10 games including playoffs. Rice will be a key part of the offense in 2024 and should share the top pass-catching role with Travis Kelce.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Avoids injury designation

    Rice (ankle) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's Super Bowl matchup with the 49ers. The rookie sandwiched full practices Wednesday and Friday around a limited session Thursday. He was initially listed with one ankle injury and now is listed with both, but it seems neither is bad enough to threaten his availability for the big game. Rice has been Kansas City's clear No. 1 WR since mid-season, routinely leading the group in snaps, routes, targets and yards while the other guys mostly have rotated. Marquez Valdes-Scantling and Justin Watson are the best bets to get playing time alongside Rice, though neither is a sure thing to handle a typical starter's workload.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Tending to injured ankles

    Rice was a limited practice participant Thursday due to injured ankles. Until Thursday's practice report, Rice was listed as a full participant with an ankle issue, but the Chiefs expanded that to the plural ankles just three days before Super Bowl LVIII. The rookie wide receiver thus will have one more chance to return to all activity or else potentially be in danger of heading into the weekend with a designation for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Garners nine targets in win

    Rice had eight receptions (on nine targets) for 46 yards in Sunday's 17-10 win over the Ravens in the AFC Championship Game. Rice finished second in receiving for Kansas City behind tight end Travis Kelce (11-116-1) while logging his fifth game of eight-plus receptions dating back to the team's bye in Week 11 of the regular season. The second-round rookie actually produced one less yard than he did against the Bills in the AFC divisional round despite doubling his reception total from that win. Rice has produced a receiving line of 20-223-1 across three playoff games as the Chiefs prepare to face the winner of the NFC Championship Game in Las Vegas on Sunday, Feb. 11.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Held to 47 yards

    Rice recorded four receptions on four targets for 47 yards in Sunday's 27-24 win over the Bills. Rice had his opportunity curtailed by the Chiefs' overall volume, as the team ran only 47 offensive plays compared to 78 for the Bills. As a result, he saw his lowest target total since Week 9, and he failed to surpass 50 receiving yards for the first time since Week 11. Rice will face another tough test in the AFC Championship Game, as he'll square off against a Baltimore secondary that allowed the ninth-fewest yards to opposing wide receivers.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Big performance in wild-card round

    Rice recorded eight receptions on 12 targets for 130 yards and one touchdown in Saturday's 26-7 win over the Dolphins. Rice was the Chiefs' top pass catcher by any measure Saturday. He kicked off the scoring with an 11-yard touchdown reception on the team's first offensive possession, and he also chipped in three receptions of at least 20 yards. With the performance, he now has at least 90 receiving yards in four of his last seven games. Rice suffered a brief injury scare early in the third quarter but was able to return to the game and should be ready to go for Kansas City's divisional-round matchup.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Practices fully Tuesday

    Rice (hamstring) was a full practice participant Tuesday. While Rice managed the hamstring injury, Kansas City held him out of practice for the entirety of Week 18 prep before he was inactive for Sunday's 13-12 win over the Chargers. Even if he hadn't been nursing the injury, Rice may have played only limited snaps, as the AFC West champs opted to rest other key contributors such as quarterback Patrick Mahomes and tight end Travis Kelce while the team was locked in as the No. 3 seed in the conference. Now that he's back on the field as a full practice participant, Rice looks like he'll head into Saturday's wild-card matchup with the Dolphins with no restrictions.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Still not practicing

    Rice (hamstring) won't practice Thursday, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports. Rice also missed Wednesday's session, so the wideout now has one more opportunity to practice ahead of Sunday's game against the Chargers. Either way, with the Chiefs locked into the AFC's No. 3 playoff seed, Rice is a candidate to be held out by the team in Week 18.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Sidelined for practice Wednesday

    Rice won't practice Wednesday due to a hamstring injury, Matt McMullen of the Chiefs' official site reports. Rice wasn't known to be tending to an injury coming out of this past Sunday's 25-17 win over the Bengals, during which he recorded five catches for 127 yards. Though his lack of activity to begin Week 18 prep isn't ideal, Rice will be a candidate to sit out this Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Chargers or see a reduced workload regardless of his health. Kansas City is locked in as the No. 3 seed in the playoffs no matter what happens in Week 18, so the team's main goal for Sunday will be to prioritize health for key players above all else.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Second 100-yard performance

    Rice recorded five receptions on six targets for 127 yards in Sunday's 25-17 win over the Bengals. Despite having targets split fairly evenly across several pass catchers, Rice emerged as the top pass catcher for the Chiefs in Sunday's win. His most impactful play of the game was a 67-yard catch down the right sideline late in the third quarter when he got behind the Bengals' secondary to help set up a field goal. That play also marked Rice's longest gain of the season and helped him to his second 100-yard performance in his last six contests. He also has three touchdowns in that span.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: WRs to Start

    Rice only scored 11.7 PPR points in Week 16 against the Raiders, which was his lowest total in his past five games. Still, he had his highest target total against Las Vegas with 12, and he now has at least nine targets in five games in a row. He should have the chance for a big game in Week 17 against the Bengals, who have been abused by wide receivers of late. In their past four games, six receivers have scored at least 12.8 PPR points against Cincinnati, including Michael Pittman (17.5 PPR points), Jordan Addison (29.1 PPR points), Justin Jefferson (15.4 PPR points) and George Pickens (35.5 PPR points). Rice could have his best game of the season in Week 17.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Contrarian DFS Play (WR Preview)

    I would not expect this Chiefs offense to be popular after their very public poor performance in an island game on Christmas. Still, the Bengals have been one of the worst defenses in the NFL this season and Rice has 50 targets in his last five games.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: WRs to Start

    Rice's breakout started in Week 12 at Las Vegas when he had eight catches for 107 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets for 24.7 PPR points. Since then, he's scored at least 14.4 PPR points in four games in a row, and he has at least nine targets and seven catches in each outing over that span, with three touchdowns. The Raiders have allowed a receiver to score at least 13.4 PPR points in eight of their past nine games, and Rice should be considered a No. 1 Fantasy receiver in all leagues in Week 16.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Finds end zone in Week 15 win

    Rice caught all nine of his targets for 91 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 27-17 win over the Patriots. The rookie has completed his transformation into Patrick Mahomes' favorite wideout, leading Kansas City in targets, catches and receiving yards, but Rice's TD reception Sunday came on an Andy Reid special in the red zone -- Jerick McKinnon took a direct snap and flipped it to the crossing Rice for an easy score. The 2023 second-round pick has scored in consecutive games for the first time, and over the last four contests he's amassed a 32-334-3 line on 38 targets. Rice will look to keep rolling in Week 16 against the Raiders, the team he posted his first career 100-yard game against in their first meeting.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: WRs to Start

    There's no sitting Rice now after the way he's performed in the past three games against the Raiders, Packers and Bills. He has at least 14.4 PPR points in three games in a row, and he has at least nine targets and seven catches in each outing over that span. The Patriots have allowed five receivers to score at least 12.3 PPR points in the past five games, and Rice should be considered a No. 2 Fantasy receiver in all leagues. Even though the Chiefs offense is struggling of late, Rice continues to emerge as the No. 1 receiver for Patrick Mahomes.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Hauls in sixth TD

    Rice caught seven of 10 targets for 72 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Bills. The rookie wideout led Kansas City in catches and tied Travis Kelce for the team lead in targets, although the tight end produced more yardage. Rice scored his sixth TD of the season on a four-yard strike from Patrick Mahomes late in the third quarter, and he's caught at least seven passes in three straight games -- his three highest-volume performances of the year, a stretch in which Rice has delivered a 23-243-2 line on 29 targets. Kansas City's emerging No. 1 receiver will look to keep rolling in Week 15 against the Patriots.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: WRs to Start

    Rice has finally become the receiver we hoped for in the past two games against the Raiders and Packers. Over that span, he has 19 targets for 16 catches, 171 yards and a touchdown, and he scored at least 14.4 PPR points in each outing. He should be considered a No. 2 Fantasy receiver in the majority of leagues against the Bills in a potential shootout, and Patrick Mahomes will continue to lean on Rice in this matchup. It helps that Buffalo has allowed 12 receivers to score at least 14.2 PPR points this season.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: WRs to Start

    Rice finally had the breakout game we were all waiting for in Week 12 at Las Vegas with eight catches for 107 yards and a touchdown on 10 targets. It was his fifth touchdown of the season, but everything else was a career-high for the rookie. I hope it's a sign of things to come, and I'm willing to start Rice as a No. 2 Fantasy receiver in all leagues against the Packers. If Patrick Mahomes and Andy Reid are starting to trust Rice then Fantasy managers should as well, and Green Bay has allowed three receivers in the past two games (Keenan Allen, Amon-Ra St. Brown and Kalif Raymond) to score at least 14.6 PPR points.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Four catches in losing effort

    Rice secured four of five targets for 42 yards in the Chiefs' 21-17 loss to the Eagles on Monday night. Rice finished third in receptions, receiving yards and targets during another serviceable yet unremarkable performance. The rookie is up to a 36-420-4 line through 10 games, numbers that arguably qualify as above average in a passing attack that is notorious for spreading the wealth among its deep group of skill-position assets. Rice has at least four grabs in five of the last six contests heading into a Week 12 road divisional clash versus the Raiders.

  • Chiefs' Rashee Rice: Sleeper WRs

    Rice comes off his bye in Week 10 with a fantastic matchup in Week 11 against the Eagles, who are No. 1 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers. There have been 18 receivers to score at least 12.3 PPR points against Philadelphia this year, and Patrick Mahomes will hopefully start to lean more on Rice moving forward to help Kansas City's passing game. Prior to the bye, Rice had scored at least 11.2 PPR points in three of his past five games, with three touchdowns over that span, and I like him as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in all leagues against the Eagles.
