He’s been extraordinarily productive on the sly. Dating back to Week 10 of the 2015 season – the point at which Seattle’s offense dramatically ramped up its passing – Baldwin has registered more PPR points than every NFL receiver not named Antonio Brown or Odell Beckham Jr. And no one has caught more touchdowns over that span.
He produces even in adverse circumstances. The 2016 season was not kind to the Seattle offense. Russell Wilson battled an ankle injury and arguably the league’s worst line play throughout the year, and in turn posted his worst season as a pro. The passing volume soared, but Wilson’s adjusted yards per attempt, touchdown rate, and QBR were all the lowest of his five-year career. Through it all, though, Baldwin was reliable (75.0% catch rate) and efficient (9.02 yards per target, 10th among wideouts with 100+ targets), and claimed a studly 30% of Seahawk touchdown passes. If the offense remains static, then things look solid for Baldwin. But if it upticks, he could threaten his awesome 2015 numbers across the board.
