Is Sidney Rice Legit?

Sidney Rice caught a touchdown against the Minnesota Vikings and now has three touchdowns in his last four games.

Analysis: Sidney Rice is producing in the touchdown department but he is only averaging 3.75 receptions per game over his last four contests. That simply does not cut it in PPR leagues especially when he does not have an 85 plus yard receiving game this year. His targets have been suspect and it should not come as a surprise since the Seattle Seahawks attempt the fewest passes per game in the NFL. Rice has only been targeted 22 times in his last FOUR games while guys like T. Y. Hilton have been targeted 17 times in the past two games and even Josh Morgan has been targeted 20 times in his last two games.

As previously stated, Sidney Rice does perform well in the touchdown department as he ranks 21st in the NFL with 4 touchdown grabs. His teammate Golden Tate has played nearly as well this year(less yards but 5 TDs in 8 games) and is available in ninety-five percent of leagues. So, is Sidney Rice legit? Kind of, but here is the key stat- he’s only had 60 or more yards twice in nine games and he’s also only had five or more receptions twice in nine games this year.
