Brett Farve Likes Rice
If you’ve watched the Vikings past two games it’s clear Brett Favre likes Rice. With Brett Farve, anything is possible, but just to be clear I’m not talking about his eating habits. I’m talking about his 6’4″ Wide Receiver Sidney Rice who can seemingly jump to the roof of the Metrodome.
The first couple of weeks he had just five receptions for 46 yards on 9 targets. The last two weeks though, he has 9 receptions for 126 yards and 2 TDs on 13 targets. Farve knows how to take advantage of a mismatch, and when you have a tall WR with good wheels and great hops, it’s hard not to go his way. Especially when he’s hauling in those bullet passes.
With St. Louis up next, Rice makes an attractive WR3 play. They are going to have their hands full containing Adrian Peterson, who cannot be happy with his Week 4 showing. When the Rams stuff the box to contain AP, look for Favre to take advantage of his opportunity and get the ball to Rice deep. When setting the table that is your fantasy football lineup this week, don’t forget the Rice.
