Rookie Check-In: Rashee Rice might be the Chiefs’ best slot option

Through the first two weeks of the Kansas City Chiefs’ 2023 season, the biggest questions surrounding the team continued to be about its wide receivers — but in Week 3, we finally had a breakout performance from a wideout: second-round rookie Rashee Rice.

During Kansas City’s 41-10 blowout of the Chicago Bears on Sunday, Rice was given more snaps and a more prominent role. The rookie made the most of the opportunity, leading the team’s wideouts by producing five catches on seven targets for 59 yards on just 51% of the team’s offensive snaps.
