Rashee Rice Wraps Up Rookie Season Quietly

Monday, February 12, 1:22 AM

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice continued his recent muted postseason run with six catches (eight targets) for 39 yards, but his team was still able to bring home their third Super Bowl ring in the last four seasons in Sunday's 25-22 triumph over the San Francisco 49ers. After an electric performance during Super Wild Card Weekend, the 2023 second-rounder failed to reach the 50-yard marker in any of his past three playoff games. It ends a very promising rookie campaign with a bit of a whimper, but Rice cemented himself as quarterback Patrick Mahomes' No. 1 wideout this year. The Chiefs' offseason moves may have something to say regarding Rice's 2024 fantasy draft outlook, however, as it's abundantly clear they need to add a more credible downfield threat into the picture despite Mecole Hardman Jr.'s Super Bowl LVIII heroics. For now, Rice belongs in top-12 conversations at the WR position in way-too-early rankings.

Puka Nacua Explodes In Postseason Debut

Monday, January 15, 4:42 AM

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Puka Nacua dominated in the team's 24-23 wildcard loss to the Detroit Lions. Nacua caught nine of his 10 targets for 181 receiving yards and a 50-yard first-half touchdown. He also rushed the ball once for a loss of two yards. The 5th-round rookie set yet another record as he finished with the most receiving by a rookie WR in a playoff game. Despite his season coming to an end, Nacua continued to prove himself as one of the most dangerous receivers in all of football. Heading into next season, fantasy players should consider him in the first three rounds of drafts and ahead of Cooper Kupp.
