WOLF SPORTS PROJECTION

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

The Seahawks have terminated Doug Baldwin's contract.

In a release that can be read in the link below, the Seahawks announced they are parting ways with Baldwin and safety Kam Chancellor, designating them both with failed physicals. All indications were that Baldwin was going to retire this offseason because of all the injuries he's sustained throughout his career and the surgeries he's undergone, but he was reportedly waiting to officially retire because it would mean giving up guaranteed money. Baldwin was undrafted in 2011 but played eight seasons in Seattle and became the team's No. 1 receiver, and the Seahawks say letting him and Chancellor go was a "difficult decision." Baldwin is second in Seahawks franchise history in receiving touchdowns (49), and he's third in both receptions (493) and receiving yards (6,563). Expect Baldwin to retire in the coming days or weeks.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

NFL Network's Mike Garafolo says it's "likely" Doug Baldwin has played his last down in the NFL.

Garafolo says the sports hernia surgery Baldwin had earlier this offseason was necessary anyway, so people shouldn't look at the surgery as evidence that Baldwin will continue his playing career. Garafolo says that an official "retirement" might not happen because of the guaranteed money in Baldwin's deal he'd be leaving on the table. There have ben so many injuries and surgeries for Baldwin, particularly as of late, that it's going to be tough for him to continue playing, and it's been leaning this way for several weeks now. Dynasty owners should probably see if they can try to trade Baldwin to someone that believes he might play in 2019.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

The Seahawks say Doug Baldwin is making "good progress" as he recovers from sports hernia surgery.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll and GM John Schneider didn't give an in-depth update, but Carroll says he's working hard in the building every day, but added "it's a long haul." There's been talk of a potential retirement for the 30-year-old receiver because of all the injuries and surgeries he's dealt with, but the fact that he's been in the building indicates that he's going to play in 2019. His effectiveness is another story, though, and we'll see how he looks leading up to the season. Seattle will likely be looking at receivers in this week's draft.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Pete Carroll confirms Doug Baldwin will get sports hernia surgery.

As is the case with many coaches, Carroll can be roundabout and inexact when giving information on injuries to his players, but he didn't want to give an ETA on when Baldwin will be healthy. The Seahawks head coach did note that the veteran receiver has some "challenges" to overcome to get healthy, which doesn't sound too optimistic. Baldwin battled injuries throughout the entire 2018 season, and there's a chance he isn't ever back to his Pro Bowl level after undergoing so many surgeries. Seattle will obviously be in the market for a receiver in April's draft.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin is getting more surgeries.

Baldwin told Seattle's Sports Radio 950 KJR that he has more surgeries to come this offseason, which obviously isn't a great sign after he already had knee and shoulder surgeries after the season. The veteran receiver played all 16 games in each of his first seven seasons before he missed three games last season and was hampered by injuries all year. Baldwin battled through multiple ailments in 2018, and it almost sounds like his body is just starting to break down—he'll only be 31 this September, though, so maybe these surgeries will get him back to feeling like himself. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Baldwin might need sports hernia surgery, which would mean several weeks of recovery time. The Seahawks are likely going to be in a market for a receiver during the draft, and Baldwin is probably iffy at best for offseason training.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin caught three passes for 32 yards in Seattle's loss to the Cowboys.

Baldwin made a great grab along the sidelines on a key fourth down in the second half, but he was mostly quiet besides that despite tying Tyler Lockett for the team-high in targets (six). This year was tough for Baldwin due to injury issues, but he ended up playing in 14 games altogether, and hopefully he can return to form with a full offseason to heal up. That said, the Stanford product already turns 31 next September, and Tyler Lockett has emerged as the team's No. 1 receiver. There's a good chance Baldwin is overdrafted in the summer.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin catches two passes in Week 17.

Baldwin gained 27 yards on his two reception against the Cardinals, brining his 2018 regular season total to 50 receptions for 618 yards and five touchdowns in 13 games. It was a disappointing season for fantasy owners that spent a high pick on Baldwin hoping he would be a WR1/WR2 option. The veteran receiver did battle injuries throughout the season even when he was on the field, but he appears to be fine heading into the postseason.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin stays hot in win over the Chiefs.

Baldwin caught seven passes for 126 yards and a touchdown, which came from 27 yards away on a dime from Russell Wilson. All five of Baldwin's scores this year have come over the past five games, and he's really paid off in the fantasy playoffs with lines of 2/22/1, 4/77/2, and 7/126/1 this month. The 30-year-old should mostly avoid Patrick Peterson next week against the Cardinals, so he remains a low-end WR2/FLEX play.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin scores twice in Week 15 loss.

Baldwin caught four passes for 77 yards and two touchdowns, both of which came in the first half. The Stanford product was able to get open in the corner of the end zone on the game's opening possession, and he later caught a 35-yard score on an impressive catch-and-run. Baldwin came into the game banged up and carries significant risk at less than 100%, but he gets a good matchup against the Chiefs next Sunday night. Consider the 30-year-old a solid FLEX with four touchdowns over his past four appearances.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (hip) is officially active against the Niners.

Baldwin was said to be ready to go after missing last Monday’s game versus the Vikings, and he’s indeed out there after not suffering any setbacks in pregame warmups. Baldwin probably needs a touchdown to deliver strong Week 15 fantasy value.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (hip) is questionable for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Baldwin missed last week and saw Seattle's passing attack struggle, so his hopeful return would be a boost to Russell Wilson as a low-end QB1. That said, Baldwin is a shaky FLEX option at less than 100% if he plays, and there are probably more reliable wideouts to consider for the fantasy semifinals.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (hip) was limited in today's practice.

This is a step in the right direction for the veteran receiver, as he's missed the last four practices. Baldwin is likely headed for a questionable tag when the final Week 15 injury report is released tomorrow.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (hip) officially did not practice today.

Baldwin didn't practice at all last week before being ruled out on Monday night against the Vikings. It's hard to feel good about his Week 15 status if he doesn't hit the practice field tomorrow or Friday.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (hip) is officially inactive for Monday night.

Baldwin didn't practice all week while dealing with his hip injury so this isn't a surprise. The veteran receiver wasn't going to be a recommended fantasy option for the first week of the fantasy playoffs in a tough matchup with the Vikings, but him being out is a hit to Seattle's offense. This is Baldwin's third missed game this season in what's been an injury-riddled year.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (groin) is officially listed as questionable for Monday night.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll says Baldwin will be a gametime decision for a big matchup against the Vikings. The veteran receiver has battled injuries all season long, and ideally you'll have a better fantasy option from tomorrow's action instead of having to wait on seeing if Baldwin can play in Week 14. Keep in mind that Baldwin didn't practice all week.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin scores in win over the 49ers.

Baldwin caught four passes for 22 yards, including a one-yard touchdown in the first half. The veteran was able to bring in all four of his targets, but Seattle didn't need much through the air in a 43-16 victory. While the game should be more competitive next Monday night against the Vikings, Baldwin should be downgraded for a battle with standout slot corner Mackensie Alexander to kickoff the fantasy playoffs.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin catches five passes against the Panthers.

Baldwin was targeted a team-high seven times in the Seahawks' win, but he gained just 39 yards on his five receptions. The veteran receiver was open on a pass down the middle, though, and Russell Wilson was late with the throw and missed him high on what would've likely been a touchdown. Baldwin is just a FLEX option against the Niners in Week 13.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (groin) is officially active for the Seahawks.

Baldwin didn’t practice all week and looked to be on the wrong side of questionable, but he’s suited up against the Panthers. The veteran receiver might be limited because of the injury, so he carries some risk in Week 12 fantasy lineups.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (groin) is listed as questionable for Week 12.

Baldwin didn't practice all week, so he's looking on the doubtful side of things. However, he'll be a game-time decision, so we'll see how he feels on Sunday. The Seahawks kickoff in the early slate of games, so the good news is the veteran receiver's status will be known by 11:30 AM ET on Sunday.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin scores in Seahawks' win.

Baldwin was targeted a team-high ten time against the Packers in tonight's win, catching seven passes for 52 yards and a touchdown. The score was on a corner route in the red zone in the second quarter, and he nearly had another touchdown earlier in the game when he got wide-open in the end zone against a zone coverage but had the pass overthrown by Russell Wilson. This was Baldwin's first touchdown of the season, and he isn't an excellent fantasy option right now, but ten targets and a score was a good step in the right direction as the fantasy playoffs approach.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin catches five passes in Week 10.

Baldwin gained 39 yards on his five reception against the Rams. He's had his share of struggles against the Rams, but this hasn't been a great season for Baldwin to this point. He'll look to find the end zone for the first time this season this Thursday night against the Packers.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin leads the Seahawks in Week 9 receiving.

Baldwin was targeted four times against the Chargers, catching all four targets for 77 yards. It was Baldwin's second-highest receiving total of the season through six games played. He's probably a good bet for more targets next week against the Rams after catching all four against the Chargers, but Baldwin was limited to one reception for one yard against the Rams in their first matchup of the season.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin catches two passes in Week 8.

Baldwin gained 26 yards on his two receptions versus the Lions. The veteran receiver typically wants the ball and believes he's open all the time, so it wouldn't be surprising if the Seahawks make an effort to get him more involved next week against the Chargers. That said, Baldwin is just a FLEX option right now.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin goes over 90 yards in Week 6.

Baldwin was targeted eight times against the Raiders, catching six passes for 91 yards, with a long of 42 yards. On one drive in particular—after Baldwin appeared to believe he was open in the end zone while Russell Wilson scrambled to the other side of the field—it looked like the Seahawks made an effort to get the ball to Baldwin. The drive ended with Wilson forcing the ball to Wilson at the goal line, where it was deflected and intercepted. The six receptions matched Baldwin's season total coming into the game, and the bye week will give the veteran receiver time to get healthier before facing the Lions in Week 7.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin makes season debut in win over the Cardinals.

Baldwin caught five passes for 41 yards in the 20-17 victory. Considering the Seahawks only passed for 172 yards, it was a solid day for Baldwin coming off an injury, and he will look to provide some impact play against the Rams next Sunday in a huge NFC West clash. However, he could see a lot of Marcus Peters, so Baldwin probably remains a risky FLEX at less than full health.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (knee) is officially active against the Cardinals.

The team and the player have said this would be the case throughout the week, and now it’s official. Baldwin is riskier in fantasy lineups in his first game back.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Pete Carroll says Doug Baldwin (knee) will play this weekend.

Baldwin is officially listed as questionable for Week 4, but the NFL no longer has a probable injury designation. It would take a setback in pre-game warmups to keep Baldwin out against the Cardinals.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (knee) is officially listed as questionable for Week 4.

All indications are that Baldwin will return to the lineup after missing the last two games with his MCL injury, but it's no guarantee. Either way, it might be risky to trust Baldwin as a sure-fire starting option in fantasy lineups in his first game back. His official game status will be known by 3:00 PM ET on Sunday.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (knee) says "I feel like I'm ready to go."

Baldwin practiced on a limited basis yesterday and will likely remain as such throughout the week, but he says he wants to play Sunday against the Cardinals. He apparently looks and feels good in practice, but the coaches and medical staff will ultimately decide whether Baldwin plays in Week 4 or not. We'll see how he's listed when the official injury report is released tomorrow.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (knee) was officially a limited participant in today's practice.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said earlier today at his press conference that Baldwin has a chance to play this Sunday against the Cardinals. It'd be good to see him get up to a full practice at some point this week, but he has enough experience with Russell Wilson that he could get in three limited sessions and play come Sunday. We'll update you with Baldwin's practice status the next two days before the official injury report for the game is released over the weekend.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (knee) has been ruled out for Week 3.

As expected. Baldwin is week-to-week with his knee injury, and the Seahawks will rely on Tyler Lockett and Brandon Marshall as their top two receivers this weekend against the Cowboys.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (knee) has officially been ruled out for Week 2.

Baldwin is supposed to be out a couple of weeks with his MCL sprain, but the Seahawks haven't given an exact timetable. Consider Baldwin week-to-week for now. Tyler Lockett and Brandon Marshall both have a decent shot at 10+ targets on Monday night against the Bears.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Pete Carroll says Doug Baldwin may be out a couple of weeks.

Carroll denied to confirm the rumors of a potential tear for Baldwin, but he sounds optimistic that his top receiver won't miss too much time. Expect Baldwin to be out for Week 2 against the Bears, but there's probably a chance he can return sometime this month. Hopefully the Seahawks give a clearer timetable for Baldwin's return, which they have not done to this point.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin suffered an MCL sprain today, Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll said.

The injury was suffered in the opposite knee of the knee that's bothered him throughout the summer, so now Seattle's No. 1 receiver is dealing with two bad knees. We would expect Baldwin is going to miss some time with this, but he'd be difficult to trust him fantasy lineups if he attempts to tough it out. Before leaving today's game, Baldwin did not have any catches. We'll see how he's listed on the injury report throughout this upcoming week.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (knee) will not return against the Broncos.

Baldwin injured his knee earlier in the game and then returned, but now he's out for the rest of the afternoon. It's unclear whether the knee that's keeping him out of the game is the one he injured today or the one that's been nagging him throughout the summer, but either way Baldwin is not close to 100% right now.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Update: Doug Baldwin (leg) has returned for the Seahawks.

Baldwin might not be close to 100% in either leg, but he's back in the game for Seattle as the second quarter begins.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin gets rolled up on against the Broncos.

Baldwin is dealing with an injured knee that he said won't be 100% all season, and now he had his other leg rolled up on in the first quarter against Denver. Hopefully this injury isn't too serious, but it might be tough for him to return while already dealing with one leg at less than full strength. We'll update you as more information becomes available.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin says his knee will not be at 100% this season.

When asked if he underwent surgery, Baldwin said "it depends on your definition of surgery," indicating he might have had arthroscopic knee surgery. Baldwin went on to say that his left knee is at about 80-85% and won't get to 100% this season, saying "it's something I've got to deal with for the rest of the season." Seattle's No. 1 receiver is expected to be ready to go for Week 1 on September 9 against the Broncos, but he could show some signs of rust at less than full strength. Despite the opportunity for a ton of targets, Baldwin might have a hard time matching his fourth-round ADP in 2018.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Pete Carroll says Doug Baldwin will be ready for Week 1.

Carroll says Baldwin is ramping up his practice activity but will not play in the preseason finale on Thursday (which is not a surprise). However, Carroll maintains that Baldwin will be out there for the season opener. Barring a setback, we'll see Baldwin on September 9 against the Broncos. His injury and missing all this time doesn't decrease his fantasy value too much, but it's something to keep in mind during drafts.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin will be out a couple weeks with a "sore knee."

Baldwin had been dealing with a knee issue that started since he's arrived at training camp, and he's already missed some time because of it. Seattle went ahead and shut him down for a couple weeks and will be ramped back up "properly," according to head coach Pete Carroll. Baldwin is almost certainly going to miss the first preseason game, and they'll likely hold him out until at least the third preseason game. This will give Brandon Marshall, Amara Darboh, and some of the other receivers in the Seahawks receiving corps an opportunity to step up behind Baldwin and Tyler Lockett.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin scores twice in Week 17.

Baldwin had four receptions for 90 yards and two touchdowns against the Cardinals, brining his stat line to 75/991/8 this season. It's possible the Seahawks make some changes to the receiving group in 2018, but for now expect Baldwin to be a high-floor option—with perhaps limited upside—in fantasy drafts next year.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin scores in win over the Cowboys.

Baldwin caught four passes for 35 yards and a score, all of which led the team on a day where Russell Wilson threw for just 93 yards. The 29-year-old needs 99 yards to reach 1,000 for the third-straight season, and he should mostly avoid Patrick Peterson in Week 17. Still, the Seahawks aren't going to play for numbers with a playoff spot on the line, so Baldwin is no better than a low-end WR2/FLEX option.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin catches one pass against the Rams.

The Rams have historically done a very good job on Baldwin, but this game was just flat-out bad for the entire Seahawks team. Baldwin had one six-yard reception (on four targets) and that was it in the loss. Look for a bounce-back next week against the Cowboys, and Baldwin should have a solid floor in that matchup.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin scores in Week 14 loss.

Baldwin caught three passes for 78 yards, including a 26-yard touchdown. He also had another 43-yard gain. Baldwin was able to perform in a difficult matchup, but he gets another one in Week 15, as the Rams have held him in check for most of his career, including earlier this season. Consider him a low-end WR2/FLEX option against Wade Phillips' defense.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin leads Seahawks in Week 13 receiving.

Baldwin had a difficult matchup against the Eagles, but he played well, catching five of seven targets for 84 yards in a victory. Baldwin's long reception was for 47 yards, and he was very nearly in the end zone but had his foot skid out of bounds while the ball was at the one-yard line. With a difficult matchup against the Jaguars next week, Baldwin does have some downside in fantasy lineups in the first week of the fantasy playoffs.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin gets three touches against the 49ers.

San Francisco has done an excellent job against slot receivers this season, and Baldwin was no different in both matchups versus them this season. The veteran receiver caught two of three targets for 25 yards and added a -5-yard carry in the Week 12 win. Baldwin should do more damage next week against the Eagles, but he does carry some risk in fantasy lineups.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin scores in Week 11.

Baldwin was quiet for most of the night, but he scored a late touchdown when he got wide open deep over the middle for 29 yards to make it a one-score game. Overall, he had two receptions for 40 yards and a touchdown. Foolishly, Baldwin convinced Pete Carroll to challenge a play in the second half that was clearly a dropped pass by Baldwin, but for whatever reason he insisted he caught it and the challenge cost Seattle a timeout they really could've used in a close game. Baldwin will remain a high-floor option against the Niners in Week 12.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin nears 100 yards in Week 10 win.

Baldwin was having his usual fine game, working as a reliable target for Russell Wilson, but he ended up having a very good stat line after his 54-yard reception in the fourth quarter on a nice leaping catch-and-run on the sideline after a crazy scrambling play by Wilson. Overall, Baldwin caught five of six targets for 95 yards in the game, and his long reception set up a Jimmy Graham touchdown on the next play. Baldwin will offer a high floor against Atlanta in Week 11.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin scores against the Redskins in Week 9.

Baldwin caught seven of 12 targets for 108 yards and a touchdown in Seattle's loss, with the touchdown coming on a 30-yard deep ball late in the game after Redskins cornerback Josh Norman completely whiffed on his press. Baldwin is on pace for 98 receptions for 1,076 yards and six touchdowns this season.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin gets team-high ten targets against Houston.

Baldwin caught six passes for 54 yards in the Seahawks' win, but he was only the fourth-leading receiver in a day the Seahawks threw for 452 yards. Baldwin gets the Redskins next week and will remain a high-floor option in fantasy lineups.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin gets 12 targets against the Giants.

Baldwin caught nine of the 12 targets, gaining 91 yards with the touchdown in the game. The touchdown came on a pass deep over the middle after Baldwin got behind the defense for a 32-yarder. He'll have a high floor against the Texans next Sunday.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin gets eight targets in Week 5.

Baldwin caught four of eight targets for 37 yards against the Rams. His targets and yardage both tied Jimmy Graham for the team lead in a game where there wasn’t much offense. Baldwin wasn’t listed on the injury report ahead of the game, but he’ll have the Week 6 bye to get closer to 100% before having a difficult Week 7 matchup with the Giants.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin is not listed on the Week 5 injury report.

Baldwin is probably still battling the groin issue, but there is zero doubt about his game status. You can pencil him into your lineup if you were planning on playing him. The Rams have done a good job of limiting Baldwin in some games, but he still has a lot of upside.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin caught three passes for 35 yards in Sunday's win over the Colts.

Baldwin was a game-time decision due to a groin injury, but they went to him early with a 27-yard catch on the first drive. He was quiet after that besides catching a two-point conversion, but should be healthier next week against the Rams. He's a low-end WR2/FLEX option.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (groin) is active for Sunday Night Football.

Baldwin was expected to play through his groin issue and he officially is. Though he's battling the groin, Baldwin can be inserted into fantasy lineups as a WR2/FLEX option.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (groin) is going to "try to play" tonight, according to Adam Schefter.

Baldwin is a game-time decision, but Baldwin probably doesn't want to miss the game and will be out there. Schefter actually says the groin issue for Baldwin has "been an issue," so it sounds like he's been battling through it. There's probably a chance Baldwin aggravates his groin injury at some point, which makes him a bit risky. He does offer good upside whenever he's on the field, so you can have him in your fantasy lineup against the Colts if he's active.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (groin) will be a game-time decision on Sunday.

Two days ago, Pete Carroll said Baldwin is planning on playing against the Colts, so we would consider him slightly better than 50/50 to suit up. That said, it is at home against the talent-deficient Colts, so Seattle probably won't push their receiver or have him play a full compliment of snaps. Consider Baldwin a risky FLEX option, especially if you don't have another option on Sunday or Monday night to potentially replace him. Tyler Lockett and Paul Richardson should see a boost in targets either way, as should tight end Jimmy Graham.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (groin) is expected to play on Sunday night.

Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll talked to reporters and said Baldwin probably won't practice until Friday, but that he expects to play in the game against the Colts. The problem is the Seahawks play in the Sunday night game, meaning fantasy owners might be unsure whether he'll be in the lineup or not. The injury report for the game will be released on Friday, and we should know more then.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin (groin) is questionable to return against the Titans.

The Seahawks are down 13 late in the fourth, so they could use Baldwin as they attempt to stage a comeback, but it's getting late in the game. Baldwin had ten receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown before leaving the game.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin catches six passes in Week 2.

He was targeted nine times but only had 44 yards on his six receptions. Baldwin gets the Titans and Week 3 and will remain a high floor option.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin catches all four Week 1 targets.

Seattle lost to Green Bay, but Baldwin played well, catching four passes for 63 yards. There's not much question Baldwin is going to be chirping for more targets in Week 2 against the Niners. He'll be a high floor option in that game.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin caught two passes for 45 yards in the Seahawks' third preseason game.

Baldwin has great chemistry with Russell Wilson, and the quarterback should be healthy for the start of the regular season. On the downside for Baldwin, Seattle has a lot of weapons on offense, so he could struggle to live up to his third-round price tag.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin leads Seahawks in receiving in exhibition against Minnesota.

Baldwin caught all four targets from Russell Wilson, gaining 69 yards in under a half of play. The 28-year-old receiver looked as good as ever, showing his quickness and route running from the slot. Baldwin should offer a high floor, but he might be going too high in fantasy drafts as a current top-30 pick.

Doug Baldwin catches touchdown in playoff loss to Falcons.

Baldwin had five receptions for 80 yards and a touchdown. After setting career highs in receptions and yards, Baldwin is a good bet for 80+ catches and 1,000+ yards next season.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Baldwin gets heavily targeted by Russell Wilson.

Doug Baldwin had 11 receptions (on 12 targets) for 104 yards and a touchdown in a wild card win over the Lions. Baldwin did most of his damage in the second half, including his touchdown to basically lock up the game. Look for Baldwin to push for double digit targets again next weekend versus Atlanta.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin catches two passes for 44 yards in regular season finale.

Baldwin ends the regular season with 94 receptions for 1,128 yards (both career highs) and seven touchdowns. Baldwin will see a lot of passes from Russell Wilson for however long Seattle remains standing in the NFC.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin gets 19 targets against Arizona.

Despite the tough matchup, Baldwin had 13 catches for 171 yards and a touchdown. Baldwin has had some huge games like this over the past two seasons. He'll be a high floor, high upside WR2 in Week 17.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin caught five catches for 35 yards and a touchdown against the Rams.

Baldwin remains a consistent option for Russell Wilson, on mainly short passes. He'll be a FLEX against Arizona next week.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin caught six passes for 46 yards in the Seahawks' loss to the Packers.

Baldwin led the team with 11 targets, and the Seahawks threw it a lot as they trailed all game, but it didn't result in good production for Baldwin. He will be just a FLEX in Week 15 against the Rams; LA has fallen apart recently, but they did hold Baldwin to 20 yards earlier this season.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin catches another seven passes in Week 13.

He had seven catches for 65 yards. Baldwin has always been a high floor option, as the Seahawks get him involved on passes in the flat almost every week. Baldwin is a WR2/FLEX next week against the Packers.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin catches seven passes but is limited to 34 yards in Week 12.

Baldwin couldn't get anything going after the catch. Baldwin should be a good WR2 in a good matchup next week against the Panthers.

Doug Baldwin | Free Agent WR

Doug Baldwin scores three times in Week 10.

It's Baldwin's first time scoring since Week 3. Baldwin hasn't been as good as last season, partly because of the emergence of Jimmy Graham, but he's still at least a good FLEX option. Keep him in your lineup against the Eagles this week.
