Quick fantasy outlook: Golden Tate and Sidney Rice were the Seahawks' starting WRs last season, but were generally unexciting. Even with opposing defenses stacking the line to confront Marshawn Lynch, and with one of the more accurate passers throwing to them, neither Tate nor Rice became a consistent playmaker. With the offseason signing of Percy Harvin, it was initially expected that Tate and Rice would be battling for a single starting spot opposite Harvin, but the hip injury to Harvin means that Tate and Rice will both start until Harvin returns (possibly by November 2013, but possibly not until 2014.) Between Tate and Rice, Tate is the younger and faster of the two receivers, and is on the upswing in his career, but Rice has shown higher-level production when he's been healthy. Still, Tate will be a role-player in the passing game of a run-heavy offense, which makes him unfit to be drafted as a fantasy starter.
