Doug Baldwin: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)While the tender leaves Baldwin free to negotiate with other teams, it's highly unlikely that any organization would surrender a second-round draft pick for the right to give him a long-term deal. In all likelihood, the Stanford product will either sign the one-year tender or reach an agreement with the Seahawks on a contract extension.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Baldwin's full participation confirms that the wideout is on track to suit up for Sunday's Super Bowl, despite suffering a hip pointer in the NFC Championship game. Look for the Seahawks to officially list Baldwin as probable once they release their injury report in advance of Sunday night's contest.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)A hip pointer, suffered in last Sunday's win over the 49ers, has kept Baldwin off the practice field all week, but he's not in danger of missing the Super Bowl. Coach Pete Carroll said the team is just managing Baldwin's pain, and that Baldwin is in better shape than his likely probable designation would suggest.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Baldwin has missed the first two Super Bowl practices, after suffering a hip pointer in the NFC Championship game. He's expected to be ready for the big game, so it isn't quite time for Seahawks fans to start worrying. If Baldwin doesn't return to practice by early next week, we can then ramp up the level of concern.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Baldwin isn't in danger of missing the Super Bowl, but he is going to take it easy this week to make sure he is good to go. The receiver hauled in six passes for 106 yards and returned a kickoff 69 yards in Sunday's game.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Baldwin was Russell Wilson's favorite target in this one and he made some nice grabs to help sustain a few drives. His biggest catch came when Wilson was scrambling and the 49ers defensive backs let up on coverage, leaving Baldwin wide open for a 51-yard grab. He'll be leaned on heavily again in the Super Bowl, especially if Percy Harvin's concussion keeps him out again.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Baldwin led the team in targets Sunday and co-led in receptions with Marshawn Lynch. He has now scored a touchdown in every-other game since Week 9, while registering over 60 receiving yards in all, but one game in that span. The Seahawks passing attack isn't prolific, but Baldwin has been a solid part of it recently, with Sidney Rice (knee) out for the year and Percy Harvin (hip) still struggling to return himself.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
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.
