Week 12: vs Pittsburgh Steelers
Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Seattle stomped their divisional rivals San Francisco/Santa Clara last week (29-13), and while they literally ran over the 49ers with Thomas Rawls and company (44/255/1), Russell Wilson also got in on the fun in this phase of the game throwing 24/29 for 260 yards, three TDs and zero interceptions against the prostrate 49ers D. Tyler Lockett had 4/48/2 receiving to his credit, while Rawls hauled in the other TD pass (3/46/1) - old reliable Doug Baldwin led the team in receiving with 6/60/0, while Jimmy Graham (3/39/0) and Jermaine Kearse (3/34/0) both also contributed to keeping the chains moving. It's all good for the Seahawks in this phase of the game, friends. Pittsburgh's pass D is vulnerable - over the past four weeks, they have allowed an average of 22.5 fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks (12th-most in the NFL), with opposing wide receivers faring very well (fifth-most points allowed by Pittsburgh, averaging 31 fantasy points per game). Pittsburgh has been in the middle of the range in fantasy points allowed to tight ends during that span, averaging 9.1 (16th in the NFL). To date the Steelers are ranked 28th in the NFL averaging 278.4 net passing yards allowed per game, with 17 passing scores given up vs. just nine interceptions (tied for 15th in the NFL) and 28 sacks (tied for eighth) generated. Put it this way - now-benched Johnny Manziel threw 33/45 for 327 net yards passing, one TD and one interception against Pittsburgh before the bye week (that's after taking off for six sacks for -45 yards). Advantage, Seattle.

Recent Game Summaries
2015 Week 11 vs SF (6 / 6 / 60 / 0 rec)
Doug Baldwin caught all six of his team-leading targets for 60 yards against the 49ers in Week 11. One week after 134 yards and a touchdown, Baldwin came back to earth and was not a huge factor in this game. His long play of the night came out of the shotgun where he caught a short pass to the left and brought it to the San Francisco 36 yard line with a 21 yard gain. Baldwin left the game with an ankle injury of unspecified severity.
2015 Week 10 vs ARI (10 / 7 / 134 / 1 rec)
The biggest bright spot on the Seattle offense against Arizona was clearly Doug Baldwin. He had a massive 134 yards on ten targets for seven receptions and a receiving touchdown. He accounted for over half of Seattle's total yards through the air in Week 10 and made a few big plays for this offense. His touchdown catch came at 4:52 of the third quarter and was a 32-yard touchdown grab where he was able to get behind the Cardinals elite secondary. He also made a play earlier in the third quarter for 33 yards off of a short pass to the right where he showed great after the catch ability. It was a great rebound game for Baldwin has he had just 35 yards in Week 8 before the Seahawks bye.
2015 Week 8 vs DAL (6 / 3 / 35 / 0 rec)
The Seattle pass game underwhelmed as a whole in this game and Doug Baldwin caught just three of his six targets for 35 yards. He did have a key 15-yard gain that helped the Seahawks get into field goal range on the game winning drive.
2015 Week 7 vs SF (3 / 2 / 19 / 0 rec)
Doug Baldwin caught just two balls for 19 yards in Week 7 in route to his lowest offensive totals of the season. He had just three targets against the 49ers and his longest play of the night came off of a short pass from Russell Wilson for 15 yards.
2015 Week 6 vs CAR (4 / 3 / 23 / 0 rec)
In a game where Jimmy Graham dominated the targets in this low volume offense, wide receiver Doug Baldwin was targeted just four times in this game. He reeled in three catches for 23 yards and hasn't received more than four targets once in the past four games.
2015 Week 5 vs CIN (3 / 3 / 70 / 0 rec)
Doug Baldwin produced a stat line of three catches for 70 yards against the Bengals in Week 5. Baldwin has not been involved in the passing game as much the past three games but did bring one of his targets 46-yards in this game after he burned the Bengals defender. His catch was late in the first half off of a pass from Russell Wilson out of the shotgun that led to a Seahawks field goal.
2015 Week 4 vs DET (4 / 3 / 36 / 1 rec)
In a game where both offenses struggled mightily, wide receiver Doug Baldwin caught the only touchdown for the Seahawks on Monday night. The touchdown came late in the first half off of a 24-yard score out of the slot. He was able to get behind rookie cornerback Quandre Diggs and secure a greatly thrown ball in the middle of the end zone from Russell Wilson. This was Baldwin's lone big play of the night where he finished with three receptions on four targets for just 36 yards.
2015 Week 3 vs CHI (3 / 3 / 35 / 0 rec)
It was Doug Baldwin's lowest reception total of the season as he finished with just 3 catches for 35 yards, 22 of which coming off of one play in the third quarter. This 22-yard gain was Seattle's first 3rd down conversion of the game and first completion to a wide receiver. The Seahawks would later finish off this drive with a touchdown pass to Jimmy Graham.
2015 Week 2 vs GB (8 / 7 / 92 / 1 rec)
After a 7-catch performance in Week one off mostly short routes, Doug Baldwin lead the Seahawks in receiving in Week 2 with 8 receptions, for 92 yards and a touchdown. He was able to take advantage of a blown coverage by Green Bay in the first quarter for a 32-yard catch on 3rd down. On the next drive he takes a hard hit through the middle from Clinton-Dix. Baldwin responds on the second drive of the first half with a 13-yard touchdown reception. He runs a nice route where he sticks the defender to the outside and cuts back to the middle across the back of the end zone for the score where he is wide open. This caps a 5 play, 54 yard drive for the Seahawks.
2015 Week 1 vs STL (9 / 7 / 35 / 0 rec)
Doug Baldwin turned his 9 targets into 7 receptions but just 35 yards in this game. He got the majority of his work off short passes to the sideline as Russell Wilson was catching a lot of pressure all night. Wilson consistently looked to him for short gains when the pocket would collapse and he would be forced to roll right.
Latest NewsSeahawks | Doug Baldwin hauls in three TDs (Sun Nov 29, 08:08 PM) - Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (ankle) posted six receptions for 145 yards and three touchdowns in the Week 12 game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He is the first Seahawks receivers with three touchdown receptions in a game since former WR Joey Galloway did it in 1997 against the Oakland Raiders. Our View: Baldwin got away for a long score to salt the game away and found openings in the red zone earlier in the game to help the Seahawks keep up with Ben Roethlisberger. He's the closest thing this offense has to a #1 receiver, and his value should be up with Jimmy Graham likely out for the season.
