News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Nov 17): The Seattle passing game isn't giving anyone many opportunities for big plays, but Baldwin has been a good outlet and chain mover, and he isn't a bad WR3/Flex option in PPR leagues for the nitty gritty of the fantasy calendar.

Week 12: vs Arizona Cardinals

Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. Russell Wilson has posted 178 yards rushing the football over the past two games, with one rushing score at New York - he also managed to throw for some TDs last week at Kansas City (snapping a two-game streak without passing TDs), with 20/32 for 178 yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -10 yards. Doug Baldwin (nine for 6/45/1) and Tony Moeaki (one for 1/1/1) handled the TD passes for Wilson, while Jevon Kearse (nine for 5/54/0) and Luke Willson (three for 3/51/0) were the top receivers in terms of yards gained last weekend. We'll see if Wilson can build up some momentum as a passer vs. Arizona. The Cardinals' pass D stifled Matthew Stafford last week (18/30 for 164 net yards, zero TDs and one interception thrown, with four sacks taken for -19 yards) after racking up six sacks of Austin Davis two games ago (17/30 for 174 net yards passing, one TD and two interceptions thrown, taking -42 yards in sack yardage). That marks three games in a row that opposing passers have been held to 174 net yards passing or less, with 11 sacks for -70 yards during that stretch - Arizona's pass D is playing much better football during November than the same unit which gave up enormous passing games earlier in the season. Wilson has been mediocre as a passer during several games of late, while the Cardinals' pass D has upped their game considerably - this looks like a tough matchup for the home team on Sunday, in this key divisional contest.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 9 vs OAK (6 / 5 / 38 / 0 rec)

Baldwin was the Seahawks most consistent receiver (as usual), but that didn`t count for much in this game. He was targeted mostly on very short catches and found no room to run. On his one deep target, the pass was too far ahead of him. After the game, there were reports of a groin injury, which could affect his status going forward.

2014 Week 10 vs NYG (6 / 4 / 31 / 0 rec)

Baldwin was a non-factor in this one. He was tackled quickly on all of his receptions, one of which was in the red zone but came up short of the goal line. He was Wilson's target on the first interception. The ball was thrown to him in tight coverage, and while Baldwin has great hands, he's just not the type to win those battles consistently.

2014 Week 11 vs KC (9 / 6 / 45 / 1 rec)

Baldwin is clearly the closest thing to a go-to receiver that Russell Wilson has. Though he tied for targets with Jermaine Kearse, Baldwin was targeted more often in clutch situations. His first time with the ball was stopped for a loss, but he made up for it with a short catch in the end zone, and did a great job to get momentary separation from tight coverage. Twice he was targeted in the two minute drill (1-minute drill, to be completely accurate). And Baldwin had two more red zone targets as well. First, inside the five, he caught the ball but couldn't get to the goal line. And then a fade pattern but he was bumped (ruled incidental) as the ball was in the air, which put him out of reach. He made one more big catch late in the game, converting a long 3rd down play.
