Fantasy Football 2012: Golden Tate's Return Could Hurt Braylon Edwards

The Seattle Seahawks could see receiver Golden Tate return to practice as soon as Wednesday, according to the team's blog, but that should push away interest in picking up Braylon Edwards as a fantasy player. The veteran replaced the injured Tate in the lineup in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals, and Edwards ended up leading the team with five catches for 43 yards.

While not the biggest numbers, Edwards was targeted by quarterback Russell Wilson nine times, tied for tops on the team with Sidney Rice and among the most-targeted players in the league. Tate's return definitely hurts the fantasy implications for Edwards, who might have made a case as a pickup heading into Week 2 otherwise.

Meanwhile, Rice had a relatively quiet day against the Cardinals, with four catches for 36 yards and the team's only touchdown.

Fellow receiver Doug Baldwin will also be expected to play after suffering several broken teeth, head coach Pete Carroll said.
