Doug Baldwin caught 3-of-5 targets for 53 yards in the Seahawks' Week 15 win over the 49ers.

Jermaine Kearse was the Seahawks' leading receiver. Baldwin now has just 12 total catches over his past four games. He won't be on the WR4 radar for next week's trip to Arizona.
Dec 14 - 7:37 PM

Doug Baldwin caught 5-of-7 targets for 97 yards and a touchdown in Seattle's Week 14 win over the Eagles.

Baldwin was huge for the Seahawks this afternoon, converting a 2nd-and-16 and 3rd-and-13 into first downs. He simply ran right by Malcolm Jenkins on his 23-yard score in the third quarter. Baldwin hasn't offered much in the way of ceiling since taking over as the Seahawks' No. 1 receiver, but provides a nice floor as a WR3/4 depending on the matchup.
Dec 7 - 8:02 PM

Doug Baldwin caught 2-of-4 targets for 28 yards Week 13 against the 49ers.

Baldwin got away from Chris Borland for a 24-yard gain early in the game but was quiet for most of the night. Baldwin has not topped 50 yards receiving since Week 8, and he has 34 yards total the last two weeks. The Seahawks' passing game is simply not good enough to support a fantasy worthy receiver. Baldwin is a WR4 at best even in a great matchup Week 14 against the Eagles.
Nov 27 - 11:45 PM

Doug Baldwin caught two passes for six yards in Sunday's Week 12 win over the Cardinals.

Baldwin was eerily quiet, not catching his first pass until getting a play ran for him on a 3rd-and-1 midway through the third quarter. It's a reminder that no one gets featured in this spread-the-wealth pass game, and that Patrick Peterson/Antonio Cromartie are not to be messed with. Baldwin will be a weak WR3 bet against the 49ers on Thanksgiving night -- he hasn't topped 50 yards in a month.
Nov 23 - 7:28 PM

Doug Baldwin caught 6-of-9 targets for 45 yards and a touchdown Week 11 against the Chiefs.

Baldwin worked the end line for a seven-yard score in the second quarter, and was targeted on fourth and goal from the two in the fourth. He once again struggled to get anything going downfield, and is now averaging 7.6 yards per reception over the last three games. He is a low-end PPR play in the Seahawks' struggling passing game.
Nov 16 - 5:07 PM

Doug Baldwin caught four passes for 31 yards in Sunday's Week 10 win over the Giants.

Baldwin's groin was not an issue. He was targeted one time deep down the field, but Russell Wilson threw it to the wrong shoulder and the ball got picked off. An undersized possession receiver in a run-first offense, Baldwin won't bring much upside into a very difficult Week 11 matchup at Arrowhead. He has 15 catches for just 130 yards with no touchdowns over the last three weeks.
Nov 9 - 7:57 PM

Doug Baldwin (probable, groin) is "ready to roll" for Week 10, according to coach Pete Carroll.

After sitting out Wednesday's practice, Baldwin returned for Thursday and Friday's sessions. He's a solid WR3 play, particularly in PPR leagues, against a Giants defense that continues to experience depletion in the secondary.
Nov 7 - 4:17 PM

Doug Baldwin (groin) returned to Seahawks practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

He's now on track to start Sunday's game against the Giants. Baldwin's status will be updated on Friday.
Nov 6 - 7:20 PM

Doug Baldwin (groin) did not practice Wednesday.

Baldwin is dealing with a groin injury suffered in Sunday's win. Coach Pete Carroll said he wasn't sure if Baldwin would be able to play this week. More will be known on Baldwin's status if he can't return to practice on Thursday. Paul Richardson and Jermaine Kearse would start if Baldwin is held out.
Nov 5 - 7:20 PM

Doug Baldwin secured 5-of-7 targets for 38 yards in the Seahawks' Week 9 win over the Raiders.

Baldwin's biggest contribution was a 38-yard punt return early in the fourth quarter that essentially put the game on ice. Since the Percy Harvin trade, Baldwin has seen target counts of 11, 8, and 7, and he remains the favorite for receptions in Seattle's receiver corps. He'll be a solid bet to bounce back as a borderline WR3 option when the Seahawks take on the Giants in Week 10.
Nov 2 - 8:22 PM

Doug Baldwin caught six passes for 61 yards in Sunday's Week 8 win at Carolina.

Baldwin predictably comes back to earth after last week's 7-123-1 outburst, but his usage was very encouraging once again. Russell Wilson repeatedly targeted Baldwin on screens and looked for him out of the slot often. With 19 targets over the last two games, it's clear that Baldwin is Seattle's No. 1 receiver and will carry WR3 weekly. Owners just need to be aware that this is ideally a run-first scheme that spreads the wealth in the pass game. Baldwin doesn't have as much upside as it seems, even in dream matchups like Week 9 against the Raiders.
Oct 26 - 4:50 PM

Doug Baldwin caught seven passes for 123 yards and one touchdown in the Seahawks' Week 7 loss to the Rams.

Baldwin was targeted on a team-high 11 of Russell Wilson's 36 passes as the clear No. 1 receiver in the first game sans Percy Harvin. Wilson didn't have to feel the pressure of getting Harvin looks, instead feeding whoever was open, and that happened to be Baldwin. He had a 48-yard catch-and-run early in the game before later catching a nine-yard TD in the fourth quarter. Baldwin has some WR3/4 appeal as Wilson's favorite target, particularly in PPR leagues. He gets the Panthers next week.
Oct 19 - 4:39 PM

Doug Baldwin caught two passes for 32 yards in Sunday's Week 6 loss to the Cowboys.

The highlight of Baldwin's day was when cameras caught him screaming at Russell Wilson. When asked about it after the game, he said, "What do u think man? We're frustrated. The offense can't xxxxxx move the ball." With just 16 catches, 187 yards and no touchdowns through five games, Baldwin is off the standard league radar.
Oct 12 - 7:53 PM

Doug Baldwin caught four passes for 50 yards in the Seahawks' Week 5 win over the Redskins.

Baldwin was targeted five times and led the team with his 50 yards. He dropped his lone target that he didn't reel in early in the first quarter. It's a typical stat line for Baldwin in a run-heavy, spread-the-wealth offense. He's a WR5/6 who doesn't offer much big-play ability. Seattle hosts Dallas next Sunday.
