Doug Baldwin caught 5-of-5 targets for 39 yards in the Seahawks' Week 10 loss to the Rams.
Baldwin could only watch as Tyler Lockett once again found the end zone. Baldwin remains scoreless on the season as Lockett and David Moore find the painted area with regularity. If there's good news, it's that Baldwin has cleared four catches in 3-of-4 games. He will find himself on the WR3/4 borderline for Thursday's short-week matchup with the Packers. Nov 11 - 8:04 PM

Date:

Doug Baldwin (groin) will play in Week 10 against the Rams.

Baldwin was promptly removed from Seattle's injury report on Friday and is good to go on Sunday against the Rams. Teams have typically exploited the Rams' defense on the outside, which spells a better afternoon for Tyler Lockett and David Moore. Even so, Baldwin should garner volume if this divisional tilt becomes a high-scoring affair. He's a high-end WR3 in Los Angeles Sunday.
Nov 9 - 4:34 PM

Doug Baldwin (groin) did not practice Wednesday.

It's a new injury for Baldwin after he'd previously been on injury reports with a knee issue. Baldwin played his normal allotment (89%) of snaps last week against the Chargers, nabbing all four of his targets for 77 yards. As of now, we're going to assume this is nothing much and wait for a Thursday update.
Nov 7 - 7:14 PM

Doug Baldwin caught 4-of-4 targets for 77 yards in the Seahawks' Week 9 loss to the Chargers.

The 77 yards were Baldwin's second most of the season, though he has still failed to find the end zone. Jaron Brown and Nick Vannett were amongst the Seahawks to get painted area looks this afternoon. Unlike most games, Baldwin's lack of volume could not be blamed on Russell Wilson's limited attempts, as he attempted 39 passes. Fortunately for Baldwin, Wilson is going to have to throw all afternoon against the Rams in Week 10. Baldwin will be a low-end WR3 for that one.
Nov 4 - 7:35 PM

Doug Baldwin (knee) was a full participant at Thursday's practice.

Baldwin will be playing on Sunday against the Chargers, but he's certainly not playing at 100 percent right now. Baldwin, who is playing about 80 percent of the Seahawks' snaps when healthy, is just a WR3 with Tyler Lockett and David Moore stepping up this season.
Nov 1 - 7:50 PM

Doug Baldwin (knee) was limited at Wednesday's practice.

Baldwin's knee has been an issue all year, though he's mostly played through it. With Tyler Lockett and David Moore hogging most of the Seahawks' red-zone targets, Baldwin makes for an uninspiring WR3. He gets the Chargers at home in Week 9.
Oct 31 - 7:37 PM

Doug Baldwin caught 2-of-3 targets for 26 yards in the Seahawks' Week 8 win over the Lions.

Baldwin's missed connection was an end zone target where he could not get both feet in bounds. It was a play where it appeared possible, and an uncharacteristic mistake for Baldwin. The no show comes one week after Baldwin revived for 6/91 against the Raiders. He'll be a middling WR3 for Week 9 against the Chargers.
Oct 28 - 5:58 PM

Doug Baldwin caught 6-of-8 targets for 91 yards in the Seahawks' Week 6 win over the Raiders.

Baldwin's one-target Week 5 game sent the fantasy community into a tailspin, but he rebounded for a solid game against an Oakland defense that has struggled mightily to cover the slot. Baldwin's eight targets were easily a team high; the next-closest Seahawks pass catcher had only four. Despite his slow start, Baldwin will emerge from Seattle's Week 7 bye as an every-week fantasy WR2. He is a recommended buy-low target in fantasy leagues.
Oct 14 - 4:05 PM

Doug Baldwin (knee) is practicing in full for Week 6 against the Raiders.

Baldwin's knee probably won't be 100 percent all season, but right now, it's as good as it's going to be. The veteran wideout was mostly used as a decoy in Week 5, drawing just one target in a loss to the Rams. Perhaps he'll fare better Sunday when the Seahawks travel to London for a game against the Raiders.
Oct 10 - 7:10 PM

The Seahawks have thrown the ball just 42.93 percent of the time over the last three weeks.

That's dead last in the pass-happy NFL. It's affecting Doug Baldwin in a big way, as he has just nine targets in three games and has turned those into six catches for 42 scoreless yards. Russell Wilson attempted just 21 passes last week in a shootout against the Rams, and it's having a big drain on his numbers as well. Wilson is currently the fantasy QB19 and isn't being allowed to scramble as much as years past. Meanwhile, Baldwin is growing increasingly frustrated and says his balky knee isn't to blame. After a one-catch for one-yard afternoon on one target against L.A., it's really hard to trust Baldwin in fantasy.
Oct 9 - 10:01 PM

Doug Baldwin caught his only target for one yard in the Seahawks' Week 5 loss to the Rams.

Baldwin appeared to play his normal complement of snaps and did not look hampered by his knee injury as he blocked play after play. The real problem was Russell Wilson attempted just 21 passes as Seattle consistently gashed the Rams' defense on the ground. Baldwin should have better games moving forward, but Seattle's new emphasis on the running game is very concerning for his rest-of-season outlook. He should be considered a WR3 next week against the Raiders.
Oct 7 - 8:25 PM

Doug Baldwin (knee) wasn't listed on the Seahawks' final injury report for Week 5 against the Rams.

He was downgraded to limited practice on Thursday, but that was probably just for maintenance purposes. Baldwin saw his usual snaps in Week 4, logging five catches for 41 yards in his return from a two-game absence. He'll be on the WR2/3 borderline Sunday against the Rams.
Oct 5 - 3:59 PM

Doug Baldwin (knee) was added to the Seahawks' injury report on Thursday, getting in a limited session.

The 'Hawks are likely just managing Baldwin's reps after his Week 4 return. He'll be a WR3 for a tough matchup with the Rams.
Oct 4 - 8:11 PM

Doug Baldwin caught 5-of-7 passes for 41 yards in Sunday's Week 4 win over the Cardinals.

Baldwin was playing in his first game since exiting Week 1 with a knee injury after he missed the entire preseason with a knee injury to his other knee. Baldwin lead the Seahawks in targets on Sunday and will enter Week 5 as a lower-end WR2 option against a Rams team that has been vulnerable to interior wideouts.
Sep 30 - 7:36 PM

The Seattle Times reports Doug Baldwin (questionable, knee) "may not be 100 percent" for Sunday's game with the Cardinals.

Baldwin will return Sunday, but he's only two weeks removed from a torn MCL. He's also dealing with a separate issue on his left knee that limited him in practice. Even at less than full health, Baldwin is a good bet to lead Seattle in targets, but he's at risk of getting rested in the second half of a potential blowout.
