Summary

Baldwin, arguably the best slot receiver in the game, is entrenched as Russell Wilson's top target heading into 2018. While his catch rate dropped precipitously last season from his 2015-2016 standards, there was no problem with Baldwin's hands, as he was credited with only two drops all year. The issue was the Seahawks offensive line not giving Wilson enough time to make accurate throws, which could linger into this season. Despite the decreased efficiency, Baldwin posted top-15 wide receiver numbers for the third consecutive year. And even if Wilson is once again hindered by his offensive line, Baldwin figures to see a bump in counting stats due to volume. The departures of Paul Richardson and Jimmy Graham in free agency leave 34% of the team's targets from last season vacated. Tyler Lockett will be counted on to step up. So will 2016 third-round pick Nick Vannett. But don't be surprised to see Baldwin exceed his previous career-high of 125 targets and return low-end WR1 value. UPDATE: Baldwin will be sitting for at least "a few weeks" at the beginning of camp with a sore knee. (July 31)

Latest News

Seahawks | Doug Baldwin running (Fri Aug 17, 04:09 PM) - Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) has started running, and the team is optimistic that Baldwin will be available for Week 1, according to head coach Pete Carroll.

Our View: This certainly puts Week 1 in play, although we will be watching to see how he reacts to cutting and especially interested in his Week 1 practice participation.

Seahawks | Doug Baldwin sprinting (Thu Aug 16, 02:38 PM) - Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) was seen doing sprints off to the side during practice Thursday, Aug. 16.

Our View: The Seahawks aren't rushing Baldwin back since they are using the time to look at the rest of their receivers. They know what he is, and so do Fantasy GMs, by the look of his ADP as 11th overall WR. He'll be fine and he will be a big target again this year.

Seahawks | Doug Baldwin remains out indefinitely (Tue Aug 14, 01:06 AM) - Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) keeps coming to practice and stretching with his teammates before going inside at the start of practice to presumably get treatment. He remains out indefinitely with his left knee ailment.

Our View: Baldwin's knee issue is a mystery. He might getting anti-inflammatory injections or another treatment, and he might have a cartilage condition. To feel good about playing Baldwin Week 1 against the tough Broncos pass defense, we'll want to see him workout and get back to full practices in September.
