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.

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.
Oct 7 - 12:27 AM

Doug Baldwin caught four passes for 56 yards in Sunday's Week 3 win over the Broncos.

Baldwin continued to rotate heavily, but did lead the Seahawks in receiving yardage. He heads into the bye with 10 catches for 105 yards and no touchdowns. There's just no week-to-week ceiling for any of the Seahawks' receivers in this spread-the-wealth passing attack.
Sep 21 - 8:22 PM

Doug Baldwin caught 3-of-6 targets for 35 yards in Seattle's Week 2 loss to the Chargers.

Baldwin now has six catches for 49 yards through two games. He'll remain an inconsistent WR4/5 in the Seahawks' spread-the-wealth, run-heavy offense.
Sep 14 - 8:24 PM

Doug Baldwin caught 3-of-5 targets for only 14 yards in Seattle's Week 1 win over the Pack.

Baldwin made his expected start next to Percy Harvin, and drew the Seahawks' second most targets. He just couldn't do anything with them. Baldwin will have blowup weeks, but they'll be hard to see coming in Seattle's spread-the-wealth passing attack. He's a WR4/5.
Sep 5 - 12:29 AM

Doug Baldwin secured 2-of-2 targets for 23 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game Friday night against the Bears.

Baldwin played in three-wide formations with Jermaine Kearse and Percy Harvin, but just so happened to be the quietest member of the trio in this game. Playing Golden Tate's old role at "X" receiver, Baldwin will run lower-percentage routes than Percy Harvin, and score fewer touchdowns than jump-ball specialist Jermaine Kearse. We see Baldwin as a low-ceiling fantasy flier. Baldwin has four catches for 43 yards through three exhibition affairs.
Aug 23 - 12:28 AM

OC Darrell Bevell said Doug Baldwin will be moving to the "X" position this season.

Baldwin has mostly functioned as an inside receiver during his three-year career, but will be kicking out to split end now that Golden Tate is in Detroit. Percy Harvin will play "Z" and Sidney Rice will be a backup on the outside. It's a bump in role for Baldwin, but note that Tate never topped 70 catches or 900 yards as a Seahawk. There's just not enough opportunities in this run-based attack to make a box-score stud out of a complementary receiver.

Seahawks signed restricted free agent WR Doug Baldwin to a three-year, $13 million contract.

Baldwin gets $9 million over the first two years. Not a bad haul for the former undrafted free agent out of Stanford. Baldwin (5-foot-10, 189) plays bigger than his size would indicate and has become a favorite target of Russell Wilson's. He has reliable hands and is coming of a 50-778-5 line in 2013. Entering his age-26 season, there isn't much room for statistical growth for Baldwin in one of the league's run-heaviest offenses. With Percy Harvin also returning to health, Baldwin is more WR4 than WR3. He should play every down, though. At OTAs, Baldwin is practicing at Z receiver with Harvin in the slot.

Sources tell FOX Sports the Seahawks and unsigned restricted free agent Doug Baldwin "have gotten closer on a deal."

The two sides have been in negotiations for at least a month now, and FOX's Mike Garafolo says the deal could finally "be struck very soon." Baldwin has been clear that he's perfectly fine signing the one-year, $2.187 RFA tender, but the Seahawks want to keep him in the fold for longer. He's an underrated complement to Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice.
May 29 - 9:43 AM

In a radio interview, unsigned restricted free agent Doug Baldwin said he will not hold out for a long-term contract.

Baldwin has yet to sign his one-year, $2.187 million tender, but he will be with Seattle in Week 1. The two sides are currently in negotiations, and a long-term deal will likely get done before the season begins. Even if it doesn't, Baldwin looks ready to play out the season on his one-year tender.
May 24 - 11:45 AM

Doug Baldwin said he is currently in contract extension talks with the Seahawks.

Baldwin is a restricted free agent that hasn't yet signed his one-year, $2.187 million tender. He said the Seahawks made a long-term offer, and he has countered. Either way, he's going to be in Seattle this season, playing the role of underrated complement to Percy Harvin and Sidney Rice.
May 22 - 11:57 AM

Doug Baldwin believes he could sign a long-term contract this offseason.

A restricted free agent, Baldwin has yet to sign his one-year, $2.187 million tender, but can no longer talk with other teams. That means Seattle is his only option for 2014. "I will say things are going in the right direction," Baldwin said. "(We) are in preliminary talks. But hopefully we will figure something out soon." Baldwin is currently penciled in as a starter opposite Percy Harvin.
May 8 - 3:20 PM

The NFL's deadline for restricted free agents to sign offer sheets passed on Friday.

Doug Baldwin is the most notable restricted free agent that remains unsigned, although he was never a threat to leave Seattle. The Seahawks assigned him a second-round tender in March, worth $2.187 million. He'll sign it eventually.
