WR Doug Baldwin - Seattle Seahawks
|5-10, 189||Born: 9-21-1988||College: Stanford||Drafted: ---|
With Bryan Walters going on Injured Reserve, first Richard Sherman and then Doug Baldwin have handled punts for Seattle.
Week 16: at Arizona Cardinals
Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Russell Wilson put up 17/22 for 211 yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions thrown vs. Arizona back in Week 12 - he added 10/73/0 rushing but also took seven sacks for -42 yards during the divisional battle. Reserve tight end Cooper Helfet snagged the lone TD toss from Wilson (two targets thrown for 2/27/1) but injured his ankle in the process of the TD catch and hasn't played since. Entering Week 16, Wilson has only slung 248/396 for 2,897 yards passing, 18 TDs and six interceptions thrown, but his prowess as a rusher (106/754/5 to date) places him sixth among all fantasy quarterbacks entering Week 15. He gained 5/27/0 rushing vs. San Francisco last week (with 12/24 for 168 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, and five sacks taken for -30 yards). Wilson's main targets during December remain Jermaine Kearse (six targets for 5/78/0 receiving last week vs. San Francisco) and Doug Baldwin (six for 3/53/0). Paul Richardson (five for 3/30/1) handled the TD for Wilson last week (the first of Richardson's NFL career). The Cardinals' pass D is ranked 29th in the NFL in terms of average net yards allowed per game (259.6 net yards, with 18 TDs surrendered to date, vs. 18 interceptions (fourth in the NFL) and 33 sacks (tied for 16th) generated so far). Shaun Hill was held to 20/39 for 211 net yards, zero TDs and one interception thrown last week (two sacks taken for -18 yards), while Alex Smith managed 26/39 for 264 net yards, one TD and one interception thrown (with five sacks taken for -29 yards) two games ago. Wilson has an even chance at a respectable game down in Arizona on Sunday Night Football.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2014 Week 13 vs SF (4 / 2 / 28 / 0 rec)
Baldwin's two catches came in the first quarter. He was able to gain extra yards on one catch over the middle as he caught the ball in stride. Later in the half, he was targeted in the end zone, but the ball was tipped by the defender.
2014 Week 14 vs PHI (7 / 5 / 97 / 1 rec)
The veteran was the biggest recipient of improvised looks and big play targets for the Seahawks. The receiver had gains of 24, 20, and 20 yards on improvised plays as well as a touchdown reception in the second half. Baldwin also made a smart play to draw a defensive pass interference foul in the late third quarter that resulted in a 44-yard spot foul. Baldwin's quickness was difficulty for safeties to handle and he was able to release from the line of scrimmage and win up the seam consistently.
2014 Week 15 vs SF (6 / 3 / 53 / 0 rec)
Baldwin had a relatively quiet game, as he took a bit of a back seat to Jermaine Kearse in this game. He started the game with a short gain on a swing pass, and worked hard to gain a few yards before going out of bounds. Baldwin showed a great rapport with Russell Wilson, with first a good short catch in tight coverage for a first down. Then, a 31 yard catch in the final minute of the first half, a great play as Wilson scrambled and threw, which Baldwin just plucked out of the air. He had another potentially big catch just barely knocked away on the very next play. Baldwin had a very quiet second half.
