Though Baldwin sits third on Seattle's WR depth chart, he likely won't have much fantasy value unless Rice or Tate get injured.

Harvin's injury preserves Tate's spot in the starting lineup and makes him an intriguing, high-upside choice who could fly under the radar in upcoming fantasy drafts. Camp reviews suggest the lighbulb has turned on for Tate. He's been the most impressive player in camp after a mildly disappointing start to his pro career. Remember this is a kid who caught 93 balls and 15 TDs his junior year at Notre Dame. Tate has all of the big four going for him. Talent + Opportunity + Pedigree + Contract Year = Stars Aligned for Golden Tate to be a solid WR3 for your fantasy team this season.

Harper's got some long-term appeal, but likely won't be a factor his rookie year. He'll be a player of interest in 2014 when Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin both become free agents.

Injury Status: Out -

Rice stood to benefit from being re-united with former Vikings running mate Percy Harvin this year. A hip injury now puts Harvin's season in jeopardy and means Rice will continue to be the team's top downfield threat. He was a middling fantasy option last year. Without Harvin to help draw defensive attention away, there's no reason to expect significant improvement from Rice in 2013.

Injury Status: Injured Reserve

Standing at 6-foot-5, wide receiver Stephen Williams presents a tremendous combination of size and speed for the Seahawks offense. However, he'll have a lot to prove to earn his two year contract worth $1.2 million. Having previously played for the Cardinals, Williams started three games in 2010 when injuries struck other wide receivers. He then tore his achilles tendon in practice prior to the 2012 season. "Pulled it off the bone," Williams was quoted. If Williams can prove he can play special teams, he may earn an expanding role if injuries continue to plague the Seahawks' receiving corps. In the first preseason game he shined, making two receptions for 83 yards and a touchdown. Important to note that the passes were thrown by backup QB Tarvaris Jackson. Insiders say the two have developed pretty good chemistry, but don't necesarily count on that same chemistry between Williams and Russell Wilson.

Injury Status: Injured Reserve

Anthony McCoy has a partially torn Achilles tendon and was waived during the offseason. His absence opens the door for Luke Wilson, a player who possesses a similar skill set and who impressed in rookie camp. Wilson is an outstanding athlete that just needs a little polish. He should open the season as Seattle's no. 2 tight end.
