From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Oct 27): Baldwin didn't have the signature big play against Carolina, but he still led the team in receptions and appeared to be the closest thing the Seahawks have to a dependable fantasy receiver.

Week 9: vs Oakland Raiders

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Russell Wilson did enough to win at Carolina, with 20/32 for 199 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown, with one sack taken for -8 yards. The 13-9 win was a low-scoring triumph for Seattle, limiting the fantasy output of their skill position players (Doug Baldwin again led the receiving corps in the post-Percy-Harvin era, with eight targets for 6/61/0). Luke Willson handled the TD with four targets for 1/23/1 receiving - nobody other than Baldwin got over 40 yards receiving in the game. This is the way the Seahawks are built - to win with defense and a strong rushing attack. The Raiders' rush D is soft, but their pass D is pretty non-threatening as well, with 234.9 net passing yards allowed per game (13th in the NFL), with a healthy 12 passing scores given up vs. a mere three interceptions (tied for next-to-last in the NFL) and seven sacks (also next-to-last in the league) generated to date. Brian Hoyer threw 19/28 for 267 net yards last week, with one TD and zero interceptions and one sack taken for -8 yards, while Carson Palmer laid 22/31 for 242 net yards, two TDs and one interception thrown, and one sack taken for -11 yards. As we said, Oakland is gentle and nice to opposing quarterbacks this season. Advantage, Seattle.

Recent Game Summaries

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.

2014 Week 8 vs CAR (8 / 6 / 61 / 0 rec)

Baldwin is as close to a go-to guy as this team has. He made two catches in the first three plays, and then was leaned on heavily during the two minute drill as well. He continues to show great concentration with the ball, catching nearly everything thrown his way. Baldwin was quiet for a while in the second half, and then early in the final frame, took a short pass and ran for 9 yard gain. The new role for Baldwin (since the departure of Percy Harvin) seems to have changed only in consistency. He is now getting more frequent and consistent looks, but is still not relied on for big plays.


Latest News
