Doug Baldwin: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Baldwin, who was listed as a full practice participant by Seattle on Friday, has been viewed as a game-time decision for the contest, so those considering him in Week 16 lineups are still advised to track his status in advance of Sunday's 4:25 ET kickoff. The wideout has been on quite the roll of late, having hauled in 10 touchdown catches over his last four contests.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Baldwin has been slowed by a hamstring injury this week, and a final decision on his status for Week 16 will likely not be made until an hour or two before game time. Head coach Pete Carroll was optimistic about Baldwin's status when asked Thursday, but those planning -- or hoping -- to start Baldwin in Week 16 will want to have another wideout who plays a 3:05 ET game or later contest at the ready.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Carroll's comments follow two consecutive DNPs from Baldwin to commence Week 16 prep, placing a cloud over the wide receiver's status. Considering he's shouldered a considerable burden in the Seahawks' offense, with 10 touchdowns over the last four games, it's no surprise that Baldwin is banged-up at the moment. With a 4:25 PM ET kickoff Sunday, owners must have options lined up in case the Seahawks opt for caution with one of their primary playmakers.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)After scattering three touchdowns across the first 10 games of the season, Baldwin has seemingly made up for lost time over the last four, amassing an absurd 10 touchdowns among his last 30 targets. Such a pace is unsustainable, and the current hamstring concern could spell the end of the splendid run. However, if he brushes it off, he could keep up the breakneck pace against a Rams defense that has conceded six touchdowns to wide receivers over the last five contests.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)The 27-year-old entered the game on a hot streak and picked up right where he left off, totaling at least 82 yards with multiple touchdowns for the third straight game. Baldwin has developed into a legitimate weapon for the Seahawks since the bye, with 30 catches, 515 yards and an eye-popping nine touchdowns in just five games. Baldwin is paying huge dividends for fantasy owners in the midst of a playoff run, and he has an excellent opportunity to extend this stellar run against the Browns at home next week.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Baldwin bounced back from an injury-riddled sophomore year to match his strong rookie numbers, only with even more efficiency (10.7 YPT, 1st among the league’s 69 70-target WR). At 5-10, 189 and without much long speed, Baldwin is mainly a possession receiver, but he has good quickness, reliable hands and a good rapport with Russell Wilson. Percy Harvin's return-to-health could cost him some targets, but Harvin's used all over the field, and Baldwin's role, especially with Golden Tate gone and Sidney Rice retired, is secure.
Coming off a standout rookie campaign, Baldwin had a season to forget in 2012. Injuries took their toll, and he never really became an integral part of the offense. He saw nearly 40 fewer targets than he did as a rookie and finished with only 29 receptions for 366 yards and four touchdowns. Now healthy, Baldwin is expected to regain his place in the passing game. His opportunities also should increase thanks to the injury to Percy Harvin.
Baldwin set a record last year for most receiving yards by an undrafted rookie with 788, and despite playing with Tarvaris Jackson as his quarterback, managed a whopping 9.1 YPT and 15.5 YPC. At 5-10, 189, Baldwin’s not going to see a lot of red-zone work (just five targets there all season), and he lacks the speed to beat defenders deep. What he doesn’t lack is excellent quickness, a knack for finding the open spaces in the zone and good hands. With Sidney Rice and Mike Williams likely to return from injuries, targets could be harder to come by in 2012. But Baldwin typically operated out of the slot last year, a role that wouldn’t be overly compromised by having Seattle’s starters out wide. (There’s some talk at press time about Baldwin moving to an outside flanker position, but in that case he’d be starting there over Williams). Moreover, should Matt Flynn preside over the offense as expected, the entire passing game could get a lift. Make sure to give Baldwin a boost in PPR leagues as well.
