News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 24): The Seahawks are going to be content to not take many chances downfield in the passing game, and that makes Baldwin a very boring play, even in PPR leagues. He's only emergency bench depth.

Week 13: at San Francisco 49ers

Mark and Joe say: Bad matchup. Seattle and San Francisco are knotted up at 7-4 behind divisional leader Arizona (9-2) - this is the first of two scheduled clashes between these divisional rivals (with profound playoff implications for both), which will go down in Levi's Stadium on Thanksgiving night. Russell Wilson has been throwing for modest totals over the last few games - he has thrown for less than 200 yards passing in four of his last five starts, although he did get over that threshold (barely) last week, with 17/22 for 211 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions. The counter-balance to the anemic passing numbers is that he's been over 70 yards rushing in three straight games, so depending on how your league scores rushing yards for quarterbacks, he may still be a viable fantasy quarterback. But, the lowly passing totals (and Seattle's spread-the-wealth philosophy when it comes to targets) have most of his receivers stuck in fantasy no-man's land. Aside from Marshawn Lynch (3/43/0 receiving vs. Arizona last week), it is likely that neither of the other two receivers that led the Seahawks in receiving last week - Ricardo Lockette (one target for 1/48/0 receiving) or Tony Moeaki (four for 4/34/0) were even started in your local fantasy league. There is little upside to starting a Seahawks' receiver at this point, as the pass distribution is so unpredictable. The 49ers' pass D is ranked second in the NFL this year, averaging 207.2 net yards allowed per game, with 18 passing scores given out balanced by 16 interceptions (first in the NFL) and 22 sacks (tied for 22nd) to date. Washington's Robert Griffin III was held under 100 yards (net) last week, with 11/20 for 77 net yards passing, zero TDs with zero interceptions thrown, and five sacks taken for -29 yards. Two weeks ago Eli Manning was blown up for five interceptions thrown on the way to 22/45 for 265 net yards passing, with one TD and two sacks taken for -15 yards. The 49ers have been all over opposing quarterbacks lately, as you can see. This looks like a bad matchup for the visiting Seahawks.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs NYG (6 / 4 / 31 / 0 rec)

Baldwin was a non-factor in this one. He was tackled quickly on all of his receptions, one of which was in the red zone but came up short of the goal line. He was Wilson's target on the first interception. The ball was thrown to him in tight coverage, and while Baldwin has great hands, he's just not the type to win those battles consistently.

2014 Week 11 vs KC (9 / 6 / 45 / 1 rec)

Baldwin is clearly the closest thing to a go-to receiver that Russell Wilson has. Though he tied for targets with Jermaine Kearse, Baldwin was targeted more often in clutch situations. His first time with the ball was stopped for a loss, but he made up for it with a short catch in the end zone, and did a great job to get momentary separation from tight coverage. Twice he was targeted in the two minute drill (1-minute drill, to be completely accurate). And Baldwin had two more red zone targets as well. First, inside the five, he caught the ball but couldn't get to the goal line. And then a fade pattern but he was bumped (ruled incidental) as the ball was in the air, which put him out of reach. He made one more big catch late in the game, converting a long 3rd down play.

2014 Week 12 vs ARI (2 / 2 / 6 / 0 rec)

Baldwin was nearly non-existent in this game. His biggest play was a short yardage catch for first down.
