2015 Week 19 vs CAR (12 / 8 / 82 / 0 rec)
Doug Baldwin was targeted 12 times in the Seahawks loss to Carolina. He hauled in eight of those targets for 82 yards but did not have a touchdown in this game. He spent the majority of the game in the slot as expected against cornerback Cortland Finnegan. Baldwin nearly had a 63-yard touchdown but Wilson missed a big opportunity overthrowing Baldwin after he gained a ton of separation behind the Panthers defense down the left seam. Baldwin had a great season this year setting career highs in yards, catches, and touchdowns. Baldwin has one year left on his contract in Seattle.
2015 Week 18 vs MIN (7 / 5 / 42 / 1 rec)
Doug Baldwin lead the Seahawks in receiving against the Vikings with just 42 yards and five catches. He did have Seattle's only touchdown of the game where the offense had trouble moving down the field in sub-zero temperatures. His touchdown reception came in the fourth quarter was a short 4-yard score where he roasted third-string cornerback Josh Robinson in the end zone The conditions were extremely poor and wind was clearly a factor as well all game. Wilson had Baldwin open behind the defense on a play earlier in the game but the ball hung up in the wind and was batted down.
2015 Week 17 vs ARI (7 / 5 / 46 / 0 rec)
We finally saw some regression with wide receiver Doug Baldwin who was held out of the end zone for the first time in six games. He caught 5-of-7 targets for 46 yards in the Seahawks win. They didn't need much after an explosive first half to get this win and Baldwin wasn't much of a factor after the first few drives.
2015 Week 16 vs LA (10 / 8 / 118 / 1 rec)
It was another big day for Doug Baldwin despite the Seahawks' upset loss. He opened the day by catching his first target, a 15 yard reception on 2nd-and-16 that was created by a pick play. Midway through the second quarter, Baldwin converted a 3rd-and-10 by running up the middle of the field and falling forward for 12 yards. He added another third down conversion soon after, but was fortunate that his fumble was recovered by a teammate. Once set up in the redzone, Wilson locked in on Baldwin but couldn't connect with him on two short throws. It was in the third quarter when Baldwin made his greatest impact. He caught a 28-yard pass on 3rd-and-31 that pushed the offense into scoring range before catching a 25-yard touchdown between multiple defenders. Baldwin showed off the variety his skills et offers, breaking a tackle after running a precise route for his 28 yard gain and making a contested catch in the endzone for his touchdown.
2015 Week 15 vs CLE (6 / 4 / 45 / 2 rec)
Doug Baldwin has been the prime beneficiary of the tear Russell Wilson and the Seahawks offense have been on the past month. In Week 15 against the Browns, Baldwin would reel in two more touchdown grabs, giving him ten in his last four games. He was targeted six times and completed four receptions in a game where Wilson attempted just 30 passes. The first touchdown grab was a great pass floated by Wilson over a defender in the corner of the end zone for Baldwin. The second came off of a play action fake the very next drive on another short score, this time for six yards. Baldwin is now one of two players in NFL history along with Jerry rice as the only wide receiver with ten touchdowns over a four game period. He is also now the third wide receiver to have four straight games with two or more touchdown receptions.
2015 Week 14 vs BAL (9 / 6 / 82 / 3 rec)
Wide receiver Doug Baldwin continues to be featured in the Seattle offense down Jimmy Graham and now Thomas Rawls. He had six catches for 82 yards and another three touchdowns in a Week 14 win against the Baltimore Ravens. He has a staggering eight touchdowns in the last three weeks with quarterback Russell Wilson funneling him passes as the team's primary red-zone threat. He had nine targets against the Ravens and now has 40 total targets in his past five games since the bye, totaling nine touchdowns over that span. Eight of those touchdowns have come in the past three weeks and Baldwin won consistently in the slot against Ladarius Webb. He scored on plays of 14, 22, and 16 yards and is the clear number-one target for Wilson going forward. Baldwin was wide open on two of his scores coming off turnovers and beat Webb in one-on-one coverage before being tackled at the goal line on his first. The Seattle offense as a whole has changed their approach to shorter routes of late. The past three weeks before this game Baldwin caught passes averaging just 5.4 yards passed the line of scrimmage. Week 14 he spent more time in the intermediate game with passes caught at an average of 11.2 yards downfield. Baldwin is the first player with eight touchdowns in a three game span since Drew Bennett in 2004.
2015 Week 13 vs MIN (7 / 5 / 94 / 2 rec)
With the loss of Jimmy Graham the Seattle Seahawks offense needed someone to step up. Doug Baldwin has been the answer totaling five touchdowns and 239 yards in the last two games. In Week 13 against the Vikings he would contribute a 5-94-2 stat line and the chemistry between him and Russell Wilson is blossoming at the right time. His first touchdown came on a great throw that Wilson put in a tight window from 20-yards out through the middle. His second touchdown came on a 53-yard bomb late in the third quarter a play after a long rushing touchdown from Wilson is taken off the board due to a holding penalty. Baldwin is on pace for career highs in receptions, yards, and touchdowns this season and should have no problem taking advantage of an unimpressive Ravens secondary in Week 14.
2015 Week 12 vs PIT (8 / 6 / 145 / 3 rec)
Doug Baldwin has flown under the radar all year as a fantasy option and is having one of his best seasons as a pro catching passes for the Seahawks. In Week 12 against the Steelers, Baldwin reeled in six of eight targets for 145 yards and three touchdowns. 123 yards and two touchdowns came in the second half and now has four touchdowns in his last three games. His first touchdown was a 16-yard reception through the middle where the defense seemed to be focusing on Tyler Lockett. His second came on a magnificently thrown ball from Russell Wilson as Baldwin beat safety Will Allen badly down the right sideline. The cherry on top for the Seahawks was an 80-yard touchdown in which Baldwin came through the middle and broke through two tackles with stiff arms just before the two-minute warning.
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 LA (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.
