2024 RTSports Outlook

Rice quickly emerged his rookie season as the No. 1 receiver for the Chiefs. He had a great season, especially the second half of the season. Rice had 11-plus fantasy points six straight games to end his season. He had two 100-yard games during that stretch and double-digit targets three of those games. Rice will be the top target at receiver from day one this year. He did have some off the field issues, though, which is a bit of a concern. A suspension could be coming. Keep an eye on that. But when on the field, Rice is the complete package at receiver. He has good size and speed for the position. He can get to the next level in a hurry and uses his athleticism well. He did drop eight passes last year, which is a number he will need to improve on if he hopes to be an elite NFL receiver.

FANTASY OUTLOOK: Rice has a huge weekly ceiling, making him a top No. 2 fantasy receiver. He isn't in that elite category just yet but could be there in another season or two. Rice can get around 90 receptions for 1,100 yards and nine touchdowns.

RotoBaller's Outlook

Kansas City Chiefs sophomore wide receiver Rashee Rice is in a ton of trouble, however, I am buying the discount and drafting him everywhere. Rice has become a household name for all the wrong reasons since he was street racing and caused a high-speed accident that left several people injured, and he and his friends chose to leave the scene on foot before police arrived. This choice made things much worse for Rice and ultimately led to him being charged with aggravated assault, the vehicle being the dangerous weapon. This charge comes with enhanced penalties and harsher NFL repercussions as it is a felony under the criminal code. Initially, I thought Rice could escape a suspension given NFL disciplinary history for traffic accidents that do not involve alcohol or a fatality, but the aggravated assault charge leads me to think that Rice could be suspended from three to six games, which will completely tank his fantasy ADP. This is the part where managers should swoop in and draft a player that could once again prove to be a league winner. Rice is a yards-after-the-catch (YAC) monster. He finished with 654 YAC (3rd) and head coach Andy Reid loves to scheme his best players open with plenty of YAC opportunities. We hear the comparison too much, but Rice was utilized similarly to Deebo Samuel, and it led to heavy volume and huge chunk plays as the season went on. His routes are also not too shabby as he averaged 2.49 yards of separation when targeted (3rd) and finished with 2.52 yards per route run (10th), an incredibly sticky stat for predicting wide receiver production. His ADP sits at WR35 in the sixth and seventh rounds, directly in front of Hollywood Brown, but that is with a speculative suspension baked in. Once the suspension comes down from the league, expect Brown's ADP to go up and Rice's to go down, at which point he will become a tremendous value. When he is on the field he will be one of Patrick Mahomes' most consistent targets behind Travis Kelce, and when it comes time for managers to make a playoff push, they are going to want Rice on their squad.

Player Notes
Jun 10 11:40am ET

Speaking to reporters on Saturday for the first time since his tumultuous offseason, Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice said his focus is to "mature and continue to grow." The 24-year-old second-year wideout was arrested in April following a multiple-vehicle crash in Dallas, and he's also a suspect in a separate incident in an alleged assault at a Dallas nightclub in May. "I've learned so much from that," Rice said. "All I can do is mature and continue to grow from that. This is a step in a better direction for me." He has taken part in all offseason practices with the Chiefs but is likely to face a suspension from the league to begin the 2024 season, which is obviously a hit to his fantasy value. In his rookie campaign, Rice became one of quarterback Patrick Mahomes' favorite targets, finishing with 79 receptions on 102 targets for 938 yards and seven touchdowns in 16 regular-season games.

The photographer who said that Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice punched him has asked the police to drop the charges. It's good news for Rice, who has had an eventful offseason off the field, to say the least. However, the 24-year-old second-year pass-catcher is still likely facing a suspension after he left the scene of a six-car accident in Dallas in late March. Rice is facing charges of aggravated assault, collision involving serious bodily injury and collision involving injury. We don't know exactly how many games Rice is going to be suspended to start the 2024 season, but the impending suspension is obviously bad news for his fantasy value after he won a Super Bowl ring in his rookie season and had a 79-938-7 line in 16 regular-season games (eight starts).

Dynasty | Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice will attend OTAs this week. Dynasty Analysis: It's never a good thing when we have a multitude of player updates for you in the off-season and virtually none of them revolve around football. Such has been the case with Rice, however, as he is currently facing what looks to be a potentially long suspension after a racing incident and most recently, a potential assault. Attending camp is good but he's nearly impossible to move in a dynasty league with a black cloud currently over his head. Rice will remain a hold as this whole thing unfolds over the next few weeks and months.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice will be attending and participating in all activities during organized team activities, which start on Monday, according to a source. Rice won a Super Bowl ring in his rookie season in the NFL, but the ensuing offseason has gone terribly for the 24-year-old pass-catcher. Rice is likely facing a suspension in 2024 for his involvement in a multi-car crash in Dallas in late March that caused injury after he left the scene of the accident. He's facing charges for aggravated assault, collision involving serious bodily injury and collision involving injury. We don't know exactly how long Rice will be suspended in his second NFL season, but his fantasy stock is trending down the offseason after he became quarterback Patrick Mahomes' most trusted receiving target last year not named Travis Kelce.

Dynasty | Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice is under investigation in relation to a night club assault,. Dynasty Analysis: An adventurous off-season continues for Rice, who already has a massive legal problem in relation to a street racing incident. This new investigation is looking like it's going to take some time to unravel but it's clear a suspension (and possibly a lengthy one) is coming sooner rather than later. Rice is a hold for now as his value is clearly in flux.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice is under investigation for allegedly hitting a photographer on Monday night in a Dallas club, according to WFAA.com. The 24-year-old is already facing eight felony charges stemming from a multi-vehicle crash in March. Needless to say, this is a situation worth monitoring, as the 2023 second-round pick is beginning to pile up character concerns. He was already expected to face a multi-game suspension from his previous off-field situation, so this development could put his 2024 campaign even more in jeopardy.

Dynasty | The Kansas City Chiefs moved up in the 2024 NFL Draft to select Texas wide receiver Xavier Worthy. Dynasty Analysis: Worthy may have hit the fantasy lottery. A true playmaker with major league speed to burn, he will likely be asked to perform quickly with a possible suspension coming for Rashee Rice. Still, Worthy is a candidate to be overdrafted a touch as the Chiefs are no longer forced to throw as much as they used to with a much better defense now being featured. Worthy looks locked in as a pick in the top half of round one but expectations need to be realistic.

ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice is expected to be disciplined by the NFL, resulting in at least a multi-game suspension. Rice is currently facing eight charges after he and another driver of a speeding car allegedly caused a crash involving a half-dozen vehicles in Dallas last month. He turned himself into police last week before being released on bond. The looming suspension for Rice could push the Chiefs, who own the No. 32 pick in this week's NFL draft, to keep a close eye on receivers in the draft. KC would have been expected to look for receiver help even before Rice's off-field troubles. They had the most drops in the league (38) in 2023. Rice was quarterback Patrick Mahomes' favorite target outside of tight end Travis Kelce last year, but his fantasy stock is going to take a hit going into 2024 with a suspension looming.

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid told reporters that he's spoken to wide receiver Rashee Rice, who will be virtual for the first phase of offseason conditioning. "I'm leaving that, like we've done most of these, for the law enforcement part to take place and then we will go from there with that," Reid said. Rice turned himself into authorities after an arrest warrant was issued stemming from a March 30 multi-car accident in which he was driving one of the cars. The 23-year-old is facing eight charges as a result of the incident that caused bodily injuries to some of the people involved. The legal process needs to play out first, but Rice's fantasy value going into the 2024 season could be hurt by the fact that the NFL could hand him a suspension to start the season. Rice was quarterback Patrick Mahomes' favorite weapon outside of tight end Travis Kelce in 2023.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice has turned himself into the police following an arrest warrant being issued for his involvement in a multiple vehicle crash. Rice faces up to eight felony charges related to a collision in a street race. The young wideout owned both cars in the crash and was seen leaving the scene following the incident. There has been a $40,000 bond posted and more discipline is likely to come. There is a chance that Rice will be suspended by the Chiefs or the NFL, so missing some regular season action seems likely at this point. There should be more information on this situation as the summer rolls on.

Dynasty | A warrant has been issued for Rashee Rice in Dallas. Dynasty Analysis: Rice is going up against eight charges, including aggravated assault stemming from the auto racing incident last week. This is clearly no surprise, especially after video was released showing the incident. Rice is fortunate nobody was severely injured (or worse) but could still face a suspension moving forward once the story unfolds. There really isn't any change to his dynasty value at this point, other than the fact nobody is going to want to trade for him at the moment. As such, Rice is simply a "hold" until this matter shakes out.

An arrest warrant has been issued for Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice in connection with his involvement in a multi-vehicle crash in Dallas in late March. The 23-year-old is facing eight charges in the case -- six counts of collision involving bodily injury, one count of collision involving serious bodily injury, and one count of aggravated assault, according to the arrest warrant. All of the charges are felonies. Rice already acknowledged he was driving the Lamborghini SUV involved in the crash after renting the vehicle. It's good that he's cooperating with the authorities, but the NFL is closely monitoring the proceedings and will surely investigate the matter themselves after the legal situation plays out. There's a good chance Rice could be subject to a suspension by the league in 2024, which puts a cloud over his 2024 fantasy value after a strong rookie season in 2023.

Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice is expected to have charges filed against him for his role in a multi-vehicle crash that occurred on Saturday in Dallas. The 23-year-old met with police on Wednesday, and according to sources, he admitted to driving the Lamborghini involved in the chain reaction collision. Police say they will file charges once they have collected evidence proving the extent of all the victims' injuries. The legal process will play out over the coming weeks or months, and this is certainly a situation to monitor.

Thanks to dashcam video of the incident involving Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice and a car accident on Saturday in which a Lamborghini was racing a Corvette, there is more evidence of the incident. After the accident, the video shows one man emerging from the back seat of the Lamborghini on the passenger side and two men emerging from the front seat on the passenger side. Based on photos posted by TMZ.com on Monday, including the image of Rice with family members before the incident, it looks like Rice is the second person out of the front seat on the passenger side, which would suggest he was the driver. An NFL spokesman said on Tuesday that the league is monitoring the situation, but if Rice was indeed driving, he could be facing severe charges for leaving the scene of an accident involving injuries, and it could even lead to a suspension from the NFL in 2024.

It was reported by the Dallas Morning News on Saturday that police were looking for Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice following a major accident on Saturday in Dallas, Texas. A car involved in the accident was believed to be registered to or leased to Rice, and the occupants of two cars ran from the scene. On Monday, Rice's attorney Royce West released a statement saying "Rashee is cooperating with local authorities and will take all necessary steps to address this situation responsibly." As of now, there is still uncertainty about what happened and what Rice's involvement was in the situation, so it's too early to know if the 23-year-old will face discipline from the law and the NFL. This will be an ongoing development to monitor.

Police are searching for Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Rashee Rice in their investigation of a major accident on Saturday in Dallas, according to the Dallas Morning News. The Dallas Morning News reported that a vehicle believed to be registered to or leased to Rice was involved in a crash in northeast Dallas at around 6:20 pm local time on Saturday. A police spokeswoman said a driver in a Chevrolet Corvette and a driver in a Lamborghini were speeding and both lost control of their vehicles, with the Lamborghini hitting the median wall and causing "a chain reaction collision involving four other vehicles." The occupants of the Lamborghini and Corvette ran from the crash site. It's unclear if Rice is facing charges, and his level of involvement in the accident is also unclear, but we'll continue to monitor the developing situation.

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.

Kansas City Chiefs rookie wide receiver Rashee Rice (ankles) returned to a full practice on Friday and has been removed from the final injury report. Rice will be ready to play in the Super Bowl on Sunday versus the San Francisco 49ers after he was limited in practice on Thursday. The 23-year-old should continue to serve as one of quarterback Patrick Mahomes' favorite aerial targets outside of tight end Travis Kelce against San Francisco. Rice started off his rookie season slow, but he's been the Chiefs' unquestioned top receiver since the midway points of the regular season. In three postseason games leading up to the Super Bowl, Rice has been busy, catching 20 of his 25 targets for 223 yards and one touchdown.

Feb 9 12:30am ET

Kansas City Chiefs rookie wide receiver Rashee Rice (ankles) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice after he was a full-go the day earlier on Wednesday. It's unclear if Rice tweaked his previous ankle injury, but it's something to keep an eye on heading into Friday and Super Bowl LVIII this Sunday against the San Francisco 49ers. The 23-year-old has easily been KC's No. 1 receiver for the vast majority of the 2023 campaign, so anything that could slow him down this weekend could have drastic consequences for the Chiefs' offense. We're still pretty confident that Rice should be just fine to play against San Fran. He's been held under 50 receiving yards in each of the last two playoff games, but in his first three career playoff games in total, he has a solid 20 catches on 25 targets for 223 yards and one touchdown.
