Sidney Rice

Postby dblj9911 » Tue May 04, 2010 5:06 am

So a report is out that Favre told someone that he is 100% sure that he will never put pads on again, but until he the season starts and he isn't playing I don't trust any story. But if he doesn't come back how does this affect Rice's status for the 10' season? I have Rice in a 10 team dynasty league, he is my 3rd/4th wr, so do I look to move him now while his value is high? My other wr's are Fitz, Calvin and Colston.

The last I read he needs surgery to play. Nothing at all has come out about him not suiting up. Rumors don't count in my book. If he was 100% sure he was not going to play it would be in the news.

I still think he goes one more year. Last year was his best year statistically. He also has a chance to make more cash to support the grand kids.

If he doesn't go then I feel Sydney takes a hit. He has been in the league for a decent amount of time and was kind of a bust before Favre came to town. I think he will still be good without Favre because Minny will have more plays designated for him regardless. But he won't do as good as last year unless Favre plays. I'm a see it to believe it type of guy.

Depending on what you can get I would definately float the idea of trading him while his value is high.

Sidney Rice - Contract issues?

Postby bungle613 » Tue Aug 10, 2010 1:25 pm

Per Rotoworld

The Minneapolis Star-Tribune passes along "growing feeling" in Minnesota that Sidney Rice "isn't rushing back" from his hip injury partially due to unhappiness with his contract situation.

Rice, represented by Drew Rosenhaus, will make $550,000 in the final year of his rookie deal. It's a good time to try to cash in after racking up 1,312 yards last year, but the Vikings want to see more than just one good season from Rice, and their hands are somewhat tied by the CBA situation. The team's hope is that Rice returns to action in time for the third preseason game.

Makes sense to me. Why would a Rosenhuas client actually honour a contract???

Sidney Rice surgery? To miss 8 weeks?!

Postby bagobonez » Tue Aug 24, 2010 1:37 am

The Star Tribune reports Vikings WR Sidney Rice was at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colo., on Monday to have his injured hip examined and it appears likely he will undergo surgery, according to people with knowledge of the situation. Surgery would be expected to sideline Rice for at least the first half of the season. Rice's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, and Vikings officials did not return messages Monday night. Rice had been on the physically unable to perform list since training camp opened because of the injury he said he suffered in the Vikings' overtime loss to New Orleans last January. Rice's injury could have been taken care of this offseason, but Rice elected not to have surgery, despite the fact two of three specialists he saw suggested that might be the best idea. There has been a belief throughout camp that Rice also was not rushing back because he was unhappy with a rookie contract that is due to pay him $550,000 in its final season. The Vikings and Rice were not believed to have had any discussions about an extension this summer and that could have caused him to not want to take any risks by playing without first having surgery.


Noooo! I JUST picked Favre!

Wow! The article also says AT LEAST the first half of the season. He could be miss more than 8 weeks. This after Harvin is sidelined with headaches. Crazy.

Here is what I found on it... Waaay down on Rice.. Downgrade Favre... Bump Shiancoe, Berrian , Harvin, ADP. Javon Walker is still a non-factor until he can prove he can still run. Just my initiial gut feeling..


Sidney Rice has undergone hip surgery that's expected to keep him out for half of the regular season.

No specific timetable has been given, but the previous report indicated that he would miss half of the season. Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune speculates that Rice's contract situation is the reason the surgery was delayed and that he elected to go ahead and have the procedure because he's making just $550,000. This obviously makes Rice a risky fantasy proposition this year, while Bernard Berrian receives a bump in value. Aug. 24 - 9:23 am et

Yeah at least 8 weeks and it's hip surgery, so who knows when he'll be 100%.

Well I guess if he misses 8 weeks, then I would assume at least another 4 weeks to get back into game shape. So to me he isn't going to contribute until late season(fantasy playoff time), but do you hold a roster spot for him in most leagues?

who would you trade him for? I think it's worth hanging on to him if you have WR depth.

Thank God I didn't draft either Favre or Rice in any real leagues this summer :-o

The NFC North should be very exciting this year, for sure.
