I love the upside of Rice, however, the presence of McClain, McGahee, and the lack of a potent passing game makes me hesitant on pulling the trigger on him too early.
Rice is definitely on my list of players I want on all of my squads this year - but I won't over pay for him or reach too much.
I need to get into real draft mode and see how things are panning out.
I won't reach for him as early as the 5th (where I'll be looking for McNabb, Addai, McFadden, or a sneaky 3rd WR - Gonzalez or DeSean) - but depending on what's left on the board, he is definitely on my radar in the 6th+.
The mess at RB league wide is going to make this year very, very interesting.
In a confusing keeper league, he just went as a team's #3 RB. When teams draft their RB3, though, is all over the place.
