News you need to know
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.

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.
