He is a talented rookie wide receiver drafted in the second round of the NFL Draft and now finds himself tied to Patrick Mahomes. Where have I heard this before? Oh, that's right. Skyy Moore stole my heart last year, only to be limited weekly by Andy Reid. Just because I (and many others) were burned last year doesn't mean I'm shying away from Rice. That worry and recency bias will keep many from pressing the button when on the clock in fantasy drafts. His risk will likely be baked into his ADP, so the worries should be factored in. Rice is a zone coverage destroyer who could take over for Chief Juju Smith-Schuster's role in this offense. He has experience playing both the perimeter and slot extensively. Last year he ranked first in PFF receiving grade against zone and third in yards per route run against the coverage type (minimum 20 zone targets per PFF). Rice produced a 64th percentile college dominator and 96th percentile collegiate target share at SMU. If Kadarius Toney and Skyy Moore aren't up to operating as Mahomes' number two target, don't rule out Rice to seize the opportunity.

The Kansas City Chiefs selected WR Rashee Rice with the No. 55 overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Fantasy Impact

Rice joins a Chiefs wide receiver room that currently consists of Skyy Moore, Kadarius Toney and Marquez Valdes-Scantling. He was a solid route runner at SMU and is a capable slot receiver. His downfield ability was displayed this past season at SMU, a part of his game we can see utilized with Patrick Mahomes.
