From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 20): Baldwin's chemistry with Russell Wilson has been apparent in the past, now he has the opportunity to turn that into consistent fantasy numbers with Percy Harvin gone. He's a great WR3/Flex play against the horrendous Panthers pass defense.

Week 8: at Carolina Panthers

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Russell Wilson was a fantasy stud last week with 23/36 for 313 yards passing, with two TDs and zero interceptions thrown (three sacks taken for -21 yards) - and he added 7/106/1 rushing to the monster game passing the football. Doug Baldwin celebrated the departure of 'anger management issues' Percy Harvin with an outstanding 11 targets for 7/123/1 receiving during the contest. Cooper Helfet, the stand-in for Luke Willson and Zach Miller last week, snagged 3/61/1 out of six targets in his moment of NFL opportunity. Jermaine Kearse (six targets for 3/50/0 receiving) and Paul Richardson (five for 4/33/0) also chipped in around the edges of Baldwin's monster game. The Seahawks' offense moved the ball well at St. Louis, though they eventually lost 26-28. Carolina's pass D averages 250.7 net passing yards allowed per game, ranking 22nd in the NFL, and the 15 TDs they've allowed to date is tied for second-most in the NFL behind the Jets' total of 18 pass TDs allowed this year. The seven interceptions generated is tied for eighth in the NFL, while their 15 sacks generated is ranked 16th in the NFL. Green Bay torched Carolina for 19/24 yielding 241 net yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions thrown, while taking two sacks for -14 yards; Andy Dalton threw 33/43 for 320 yards passing, two TDs and two interceptions two games ago (one sack taken for -3 yards). This is not a good pass D, folks. Advantage, Seattle.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs WAS (5 / 4 / 50 / 0 rec)

Baldwin's line reflects his slow-but-steady role in the Seattle offense. But his one drop was crucial and had he caught it, would have given him a very nice fantasy line. It was early in the game, and he had half a step on his coverage and Wilson lobbed a perfect - literally, right into Baldwin's arms -- deep pass down the sideline only to have Baldwin let it slip through. Then, Wilson found him open on a crossing route, which Baldwin ran for extra yard. On that play, he looked like he could have fought to get free but instead stepped out of bounds very easily. He ended up with a steady four catches on the day, and despite the early drop, didn't seem to lose any targets as a result. If anything, Baldwin looked overly comfortable; and lacked finish instead of fighting for every yard.

2014 Week 6 vs DAL (3 / 2 / 32 / 0 rec)

Baldwin continues to be more valuable to the Seahawks than anyone's fantasy squad. He is easily their most consistent receiver; he has great hands and is usually reliable catching the ball in traffic. On the opening drive, Baldwin nearly scored. He had the ball in his grasp at the goal line, but was hit quickly and couldn't hold on. He then made his presence felt with on Special Teams with a blocked punt that was recovered for a touchdown. His two catches came on one drive in the fourth quarter.

2014 Week 7 vs STL (11 / 7 / 123 / 1 rec)

Baldwin has always been a superb athlete with great discipline and concentration - all he's been lacking is opportunity. With Percy Harvin being shipped off to the other coast, that all changed this week. Early in the game, Baldwin took a short slant upfield for a big gain, which was a hint of things to come. He was never looked to for the big play, but often he would add a crucial few yards after the catch. On one play, third and long, he caught the ball just short of the first down marker but was able to lose a would be tackler with a nifty spin move, and get far enough for the first down. His TD catch was another routing quick pass, but his vision and speed got him the 5 yards across the goal line.
