WR Doug Baldwin - Seattle Seahawks
|5-10, 189||Born: 9-21-1988||College: Stanford||Drafted: ---|
Week 14: at Green Bay Packers
Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Russell Wilson bounced back from his 17/33 for 151 yards passing, zero TDs and two interceptions thrown, and six sacks taken for -33 yards day at Tampa two weeks ago to throw 26/36 for 277 yards passing, one TD and one interception thrown (with three sacks taken for -21 yards and 3/29/0 rushing) vs. Carolina's collapsing club last weekend. Four players had over two targets on the day - Jevon Kearse (nine for 5/68/0 receiving); Doug Baldwin (seven for 7/65/0); Jimmy Graham (nine for 6/63/1) and Tyler Lockett (six for 5/63/0 receiving, and 1/75/1 rushing). The Seahawks' offense looks pretty scary entering Week 14. The Packers' pass defense averages 254.2 net yards allowed per game (18th in the NFL) with 24 TDs given out to date vs. eight interceptions (tied for 18th in the NFL) and 30 sacks (tied for seventh) generated. From Week 10 to Week 13 of the 2016 season (over the last four weeks, but includes 10 teams on bye during that time span - each team has at least three games played in the last four weeks), Green Bay has averaged 26 fantasy points allowed per game to opposing quarterbacks (third most in the NFL); and 27.7 fantasy points per game allowed to wide receivers (sixth-most); with 12.9 fantasy points given up per game to tight ends (second-most). As you can see, when Brock Osweiler (22/35 for 184 net yards passing, two TDs and zero interceptions thrown last week, with two sacks taken for -18 yards) isn't on the field against them, the Packers have struggled in this phase of the game - and Osweiler managed two TD passes vs. zero interceptions thrown last week at Green Bay, in a snow storm. Advantage, Seattle.
Recent Stats and Projections
Recent Game Summaries
2016 Week 13 vs CAR (7 / 7 / 65 / 0 rec)
Baldwin had a quiet game. He rarely had room to run after several short catches, but finally looked like himself near the end of the half as he got free for a 29 yard gain. In the final quarter, with the Seahawks staked to a big lead, he padded his stats a bit to end with a respectable line.
2016 Week 12 vs TB (8 / 7 / 34 / 0 rec)
While Baldwin's final numbers leave a lot to be desired, he was the best offensive player on the field for the Seahawks, catching nearly everything that came his way. Most of his catches were of the shorter variety, but he made the most of what he was given. In addition to the catches, he also had one miss that was a pass interference call, for a big gain. He, along with Jimmy Graham, are the clear top targets in this offense.
2016 Week 11 vs PHI (5 / 4 / 104 / 0 rec)
Ealry on, Baldwin caught a long pass in which the Eagles got called for defensive holding, but he had no chance - Wilson threw his way because he likely knew the call would be made rather than the catch. After that one, Baldwin and Wilson began to pile up the yards together. Late in the second quarter, the showed their excellent chemistry as Baldwin burned two defenders deep and the ball was right there for him, courtesy of Wilson's superb timing and accuracy. All day long, Baldwin did a great job of running after the catch, moving the chains seemingly every time he touched the ball. And in case anyone doubted their chemistry, the highlight of the game was a reverse to Baldwin that turned out to be a passing play in disguise ñ back the other way, to Russell Wilson for the score!
2016 Week 10 vs NE (8 / 6 / 59 / 3 rec)
Baldwin had his regular sort of day - he caught 6 of 8 balls thrown his way, none for very long gains -- it's just that three of them happened to be touchdowns! His game started simply enough, a quick out for a first down, then a comeback catch. The first score was ordinary enough, a quick timing pass at the goal line. On the second, Baldwin found a big opening at the goal line as Wilson scrambled and found him. And the final TD was vintage Wilson-to-Baldwin: over the middle, Wilson just lobbed the ball over the two defenders who were trailing Baldwin into the end zone for a (seemingly!) easy score.
2016 Week 9 vs BUF (6 / 6 / 89 / 0 rec)
Baldwin was targeted on the Seahawks first two pass plays, both caught for short gains. Then, with his third-in-a-row target, he made a beautiful long catch on a post pattern. The coverage was close, but Baldwin tracked the ball perfectly to make a diving catch just short of the goal line. He was his usual reliable self, and flirted with the century mark, but for the fifth week in a row, failed to add a score to his stat line. It would be unfair to call it a problem just yet, since the whole Seahawks offense has suffered at times in that span, but it's also important to note that it coincides with Jimmy Graham emerging as a favored red zone target. If that trend continues, expect both the consistency and lack of scoring to continue.
2016 Week 8 vs NO (6 / 4 / 51 / 0 rec)
Baldwin was not targeted until the final minute of the first half. In desperation mode with under a minute in the half, he made a diving catch and had another thrown to him that was uncatchable. Then, late in the game, he made a short catch to extend a long drive; and finally, made the biggest play of the final drive, catching a quick slant and gaining yards after the catch for a 27 yard gain. Baldwin looked impressive on every play, but the opportunities were just not there for him. Expect him to bounce back from this one.
2016 Week 7 vs ARI (9 / 6 / 69 / 0 rec)
Baldwin had the tough task of facing shut down corner Patrick Peterson. Peterson stuck to him like glue, but despite this, Baldwin still racked up nine targets, second only to Jimmy Graham. The Seahawks tried several different routes and strategies to free him up, but the majority of his catches were of the shorter variety and he was left no room to run. Baldwin did have a decent gain on a crossing pattern in the first half - which was perhaps the only time he caught the ball without Peterson hanging on him like static cling -- but it was called back on a holding penalty at scrimmage.
2016 Week 6 vs ATL (5 / 4 / 31 / 0 rec)
Baldwin finally drew the short straw. He was an afterthought for most of the game, as Russell Wilson was finding success throwing to his backs and tight end most often. Baldwin was finally targeted mid-2nd quarter, on a quick pass to the flat, which he ran for the first down. Near the end of the game with the Seahawks trailing, Wilson leaned on him a little more, but only with short passes. Chalk this one up to the Falcons defense taking away a lot of the deeper routes with their coverage, but also, now that Jimmy Graham has awoken from his year+ long slumber, the number of opportunities may have slanted in his direction for good.
2016 Week 4 vs NYJ (4 / 4 / 54 / 0 rec)
Baldwin looked great early on, adding yards after the catch with quickness and a schoolyard deceptive move (the old ìI'm gonna step out of bounds ñ no, I'm not!î). Usually Wilson's favorite receiver, Baldwin took a backseat to Jimmy Graham's heroics today. The play calling showed an effort to get him the ball on a couple of plays in the second half, but with the Seahawks ahead and Graham manhandling the Jets D, there was no need to force it.
2016 Week 3 vs SF (10 / 8 / 164 / 1 rec, 1 / -4 / 0 rush)
Baldwin and Wilson once again showed incredible chemistry. Baldwin made it look easy on his first catch, a 34-yard gain on what was essentially a pick-and-roll timing play. His next catch was a highlight reel, one-handed diving catch at the sideline. Before the half was up, he would add a 59 yard catch over the middle; a perfectly thrown ball that he tracked in between the cornerback and safety. After Wilson left the game in the third quarter, Baldwin was still productive with Boykin under center, with several catches, including his touchdown.
2016 Week 2 vs LA (6 / 3 / 20 / 0 rec)
Baldwin was a rock, as usual. He is Wilson's go-to guy on third downs and led the team in targets, but was overshadowed by Lockett this game. Keep an eye on his status for week 3 as he reportedly is dealing with both knee and back injuries.
2016 Week 1 vs MIA (11 / 9 / 92 / 1 rec)
Always a Russell Wilson favourite, Baldwin made the first and last catches of the game, as well as several in between. His presence was especially felt in the final minutes, as he made a huge catch to convert a 4th & 4 first down, followed by a catch inside the five yard lineÖ. Followed by the game winner, a great catch near the sideline. Baldwin is the only receiver in the bunch who should be able to put up consistent numbers from week to week.
