With Percy Harvin having been traded to the Jets, Doug Baldwin moves up the depth chart to become the primary kick returner.

Week 7: at St. Louis Rams

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Seattle got a taste of their own medicine last week as Dallas kept possession of the football for 37:39, allowing just 22:21 to the Seattle offense. Russell Wilson scored a rushing TD (2/12/1) but couldn't get much going in the passing phase of the game, with 14/28 for 126 yards passing, zero TDs and one interception thrown. Continuing fantasy flame-out Percy Harvin netted -1 yard from scrimmage (four targets for 3/0/0 receiving and three rushes for -1 yard) and has an average of six yards per catch with zero receiving TDs this season (26 targets for 22/133/0). Jevon Kearse (seven targets for 3/62/0 receiving) and Doug Baldwin (three targets for 2/32/0 receiving) were the 'best' fantasy options among the Seahawks' receivers last week, but the pickings were mighty slim. We'll see if Wilson and company can bounce back against the Rams. St. Louis' pass D is ranked ninth in the NFL averaging just 222.4 net passing yards allowed per game (this isn't due to their 'vaunted' pass rush, which has an NFL-worst one sack through six games). St. Louis has given up nine passing scores vs. just three interceptions generated (21st in the NFL). Colin Kaepernick took this secondary apart last week, with 22/36 for 343 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions or sacks taken; Nick Foles managed 24/37 for 207 net yards, two TDs and one interception thrown with zero sacks two games back. The Rams' pass D is moving in the wrong direction during October. Advantage, Seattle.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 5 vs WAS (5 / 4 / 50 / 0 rec)

Baldwin's line reflects his slow-but-steady role in the Seattle offense. But his one drop was crucial and had he caught it, would have given him a very nice fantasy line. It was early in the game, and he had half a step on his coverage and Wilson lobbed a perfect - literally, right into Baldwin's arms -- deep pass down the sideline only to have Baldwin let it slip through. Then, Wilson found him open on a crossing route, which Baldwin ran for extra yard. On that play, he looked like he could have fought to get free but instead stepped out of bounds very easily. He ended up with a steady four catches on the day, and despite the early drop, didn't seem to lose any targets as a result. If anything, Baldwin looked overly comfortable; and lacked finish instead of fighting for every yard.

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.
