Doug Baldwin to take Golden Tate's old spot


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(6/5/2014) When asked during a Town Hall event who would replace Golden Tate in the Seahawks offense, coordinator Darrell Bevell said Doug Baldwin would move to the "X" spot on the field while still moving inside some, according to the Seattle Times

Baldwin signed a three-year extension this spring. He finished second on the team behind Tate in targets (73), catches (50) and yards (778) while scoring five times, tied for the most on the roster with Tate and tight end Zach Miller. Baldwin has averaged over 15.0 yards per catch in two of his three NFL seasons. 


Doug Baldwin says he won't hold out


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/22/2014) Doug Baldwin isn't sure if the Seahawks will offer him a long-term contract or let him play under the restricted free agent tender in 2014 but he'll show up for the start of training camp either way. 

"(Sitting out) would not allow me to pursue my passion for playing football," Baldwin told KJR-AM on Thursday. "So sitting out does nothing for me. I'm going to play this season whether it's on the tender or under an extension."

Baldwin said he's exchanged offers with the Seahawks and hopes "we can get something done soon."


Doug Baldwin sticking with Seahawks


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(5/4/2014) Seahawks restricted free agent receiver Doug Baldwin did not sign an offer sheet with another team by the deadline, so he'll play for Seattle in 2014, reports NFL.com. Baldwin has yet to sign his $2.1 million tender from the Seahawks.

Doug Baldwin has yet to sign tender


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/23/2014) Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin is working out with his teammates during voluntary sessions even though he is not under contract, reports the Seattle Times.

Baldwin has yet to sign the second-round contract tender he was handed by the team in March, which would pay him $2.1 million in 2014 and then make him an unrestricted free agent after the season. Baldwin is currently a restricted free agent.

He said he signed a clearance waiver to attend the current workouts. His goal is to remain with the Seahawks "for a long time," and that he hopes to work out something soon. However, he said he has had no real talks with the team yet about an extension beyond 2014.


Doug Baldwin gets second-round tender


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) The Seahawks placed a second-round tender on restricted free agent receiver Doug Baldwin. He'll receive $2.187 million for the 2014 season, and Seattle would get a second-round pick if he takes a better offer from another team, reports the Seattle Times.

Baldwin said he hopes to strike a long-term deal with the Seahawks.


Keep an eye on the Seahawks receiving corps


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/4/2014) There could be a lot of change at receiver for the Seahawks this offseason.

Golden Tate, who led the team with 898 receiving yards and tied for the team lead with five touchdown catches, is scheduled to be a free agent. While the team might want to keep him, they'll be strapped at the position considering the $11 million they'll owe Percy Harvin for 2014. USA Today chronicled the Seahawks cap situation and noted the team has shown no sign of cutting Harvin after his injury-plagued season. 

Doug Baldwin is a restricted free agent who won't cost a lot of money -- for now. Assuming the Seahawks keep him on a one-year tender offer he'll be due for a new contract again next offseason. Baldwin had 778 yards and five touchdowns last year. 

One way to save some money is to let veteran receiver Sidney Rice loose. He's due $8.5 million next season and carries a $9.7 salary cap number. The Seahawks would open up some money for other players by letting the injury prone receiver go. 


Unheralded Seahawks come up big


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2014) Coach Pete Carroll said Monday that it was striking to see some of the lesser-known Seahawks make big plays in the Super Bowl.

"I think it was extraordinary last night to see Jermaine Kearse score a touchdown and Doug Baldwin score a touchdown, and [linebacker] Malcolm Smith gets in the end zone and scoops up another fumble," Carroll said. "Guys that are not the heralded guys coming in competed in our program and found a way to contribute in enormous ways."

Kearse had a 23-yard touchdown catch, Baldwin a 10-yard scoring reception. Smith won MVP honors after returning an interception 69 yards for a touchdown and tying for the team lead with 10 tackles.


Doug Baldwin paces Seahawks in receiving


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2014) Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin led the team with five catches for 66 yards in the Super Bowl victory. Baldwin caught every one of his targets and hauled in a 10-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter by dodging two defenders near the goal line.

Baldwin made 13 catches for 202 yards in the postseason.


Percy Harvin, Doug Baldwin ready to roll


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/2/2014) Seahawks receivers Percy Harvin (concussion) and Doug Baldwin (hip) are active as expected for the Super Bowl. Seattle expects a full workload from Harvin, who's been limited to 37 snaps this season.

Doug Baldwin could see reduced role


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/28/2014) Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin might see a reduced role in Super Bowl XLVIII with the expected return of Percy Harvin (hip/concussion) against the Broncos.

Baldwin was a hero for the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game against the 49ers with six catches for a season-high 106 yards, and he also added a 69-yard kickoff return. He did that despite playing through a hip injury suffered in the second quarter.

The injury could come at the right time for Seattle with Harvin expected to return for the Super Bowl, and Harvin could slide into Baldwin's role. Even if Baldwin is healthy Harvin will take away some snaps from him, which will hurt his production.

Baldwin also has struggled on the road this season with only one game with double digits in Fantasy points. The good news was it came at the Giants in MetLife Stadium -- home of the Super Bowl -- in Week 15 when he had six catches for 71 yards and a touchdown, but it was a game where Harvin didn't play.

We consider Baldwin just a low-end option in Playoff Challenge leagues. 


Two top Seahawks held out of Friday session


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/24/2014) Two Seahawks standouts were red-lighted from Friday practice, but are considered probable for the Super Bowl. Wide receiver Doug Baldwin (hip) and featured back Marshawn Lynch (knee) were both held out. Also out were cornerback Byron Maxwell (neck) and linebacker K.J. Wright (foot)

Defensive tackle Brandon Mebane (ankle) was limited.


Doug Baldwin overcomes 'significant' hip injury


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/20/2014) Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin, who had six catches for 106 yards in the NFC Championship Game victory, called his second-quarter hip injury "significant" afterward, reports the News Tribune of Tacoma, Wash. Baldwin went to the locker room with a limp after suffering the injury, but was able to return less than 10 minutes later.

Baldwin also had a 69-yard kickoff return in what was his best game of the season. He's fully expected to play in the Super Bowl.


Doug Baldwin cracks century mark in title game win


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin worked past an injury scare and managed to crack the century mark in Sunday's NFC Championship game against the 49ers.

Baldwin injured his hip immediately after making a 51-yard catch in the second quarter. He missed five plays on offense before returning to action late in second quarter.

Baldwin was Russell Wilson's primary receiver on the night, as he finished with six catches for a team-high 106 yards (17.7 yards per catch). He was targeted seven times in a 23-17 victory. Seattle will travel to MetLife Stadium for a clash against the Broncos in the Super Bowl.

Seahawks receive little production from many on Saturday


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/11/2014) The Seahawks received virtually no production offensively Saturday from anyone aside from running back Marshawn Lynch.

Among their minor contributors were wide receivers Doug Baldwin, who caught two passes for 30 yards, including a huge 24-yarder on the left sideline that kept a critical drive alive in the fourth quarter and led to a touchdown.

Also chipping in were wideout Jermaine Kearse, who caught one pass for 25 yards, and leading receiver Golden Tate, who managed just one catch for 13 yards. Tight end Zach Miller snagged one for 11 yards.

Running back Robert Turbin added 9 yards on three rushes.


Seahawks get offensive contributions


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) The Seahawks got several minor offensive contributions in their win over St. Louis. Among them, running back Robert Turbin ran seven times for 13 yards and tight end Zach Miller caught three of five targets for 21 yards.

Receiver Ricardo Lockette caught an 8-yard pass, running back Derrick Coleman had a 6-yard reception and receiver Doug Baldwin was targeted once without a catch.


Doug Baldwin takes step back in Week 16 loss


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2013) Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin, who scored his last time out, took a step back during Sunday's loss to the Cardinals in Week 16.

In a game where Russell Wilson only completed 11 passes, Baldwin was held to one reception for 8 yards in a 17-10 defeat. He was targeted six times.

Baldwin will look to get back on track at home against the Rams in Week 17. He was limited to only one catch for 12 yards in his previous meeting against the Rams this season.

Doug Baldwin has rough Week 16 matchup


by Nando Di Fino | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/19/2013) Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin has been a quiet source of Fantasy goodness over his last six games, with four performances of 12 or more Fantasy points (in standard leagues), fueled by four touchdowns in that span. 

In PPR leagues, Baldwin has even more value, as he's averaged a little over four receptions in each game. And he's failed to reach 60 receiving yards in just one of his last six. 

His Week 16 opponent, the Cardinals, have been tough on wide receivers this season, allowing a team's wideouts to score just over 11 Fantasy points per game -- the seventh-lowest average in the league. In Week 7, when the teams first met, Baldwin was held to one catch for 16 yards. 

The silver lining here is two-fold. First, Baldwin has stepped up his game significantly since Sidney Rice went down (post-Week 7). Second, the Cardinals gave up 298 receiving yards (including 90-plus yard games to both Nate Washington and Kendall Wright) in Week 15. So if this is a recent trend, things could be looking up for Baldwin. 

Even with the recent success, Baldwin is probably best used as a WR3, or a flex in a deeper PPR league. In standard-sized formats, he is best left on the bench. 


Doug Baldwin nets career-best fifth touchdown


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin scored for the fourth time in six games during a 23-0 win Week 15 at N.Y. Giants. Baldwin had a team-high six catches for 71 yards.

Baldwin did most of his damage in the first half, totaling five catches for 59 yards. He came close to scoring a touchdown in the first half, taking a 13-yard catch down to the 6-yard line, but Baldwin would eventually hit pay dirt in the second half.

Baldwin scored from 12 yards out with 12:13 remaining. It was on a 3rd-and-goal play and Baldwin avoided three tackles to dive into the end zone for his fifth touchdown, which set a new single-season record for the third-year receiver. 

Baldwin now has at least 70 yards in four of his last six games. The Seahawks are back in action Week 16 vs. Arizona.


Six Seattle players cleared to play Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/15/2013) Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch (shoulder), wide receiver Doug Baldwin (neck), tight end Zach Miller (ribs), linebacker Mike Morgan (knee), cornerback Richard Sherman (feet) and center Max Unger (pectoral) were all cleared to play Week 15 at N.Y. Giants. All six players were listed as probable.

Doug Baldwin probable for Sunday vs. Giants


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin (neck) is probable for Week 15 against the Giants, as expected. Baldwin had been held out of practice earlier in the week, but was able to get through Thursday and Friday's session without trouble. 

Doug Baldwin, Marshawn Lynch get back at it Thursday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin (neck) and running back Marshawn Lynch (shoulder) were upgraded to full practice Thursday, after both were held out Wednesday's due to their injuries. Assuming they can get through Friday without incident, they should be in line to play against the Giants in Week 15. 

Doug Baldwin unable to practice


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin did not practice Wednesday due to a neck injury, reports 710 ESPN Radio. Baldwin has three touchdowns in his last five games.

Doug Baldwin a sleeper wide receiver Week 15


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(12/11/2013) Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin has fond memories of playing his Week 15 opponent -- N.Y. Giants. In a 2011 matchup, Baldwin recorded a career-high 136 yards, which remains the only 100-yard performance of his career.

The Giants have only allowed a pair of 100-yard receivers in 2013, with DeSean Jackson recording 132 yards Week 5 and Jordy Nelson totaling 117 yards Week 11.

The Giants have done pretty well against wide receivers, limiting them to 17.5 Fantasy points per week, which is tied for the eighth-lowest average. Wide receivers average just 139.2 receiving yards per game and have totaled 10 touchdowns in 13 games -- with just two touchdowns in the last seven games.

Baldwin has become a more reliable presence in the Seahawks' passing game recently, recording a touchdown in three of his last five games. He's also surpassed 70 yards in three of his last five games. Though, Fantasy owners are relying on Baldwin getting a touchdown, so he's pretty much a boom-or-bust player.

The Seahawks are looking to bounce back Week 15 after a disappointing loss Week 14 against the 49ers. The Giants are the perfect opponent for a rebound game, so a touchdown could be possible for Baldwin. Consider him a potential sleeper option at wide receiver Week 15.


Doug Baldwin held in check vs. 49ers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/8/2013) Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin, who caught a touchdown pass his last time out, took a step back during Sunday's loss to the 49ers in Week 14.

Baldwin hauled in a 14-yard pass from Russell Wilson in the second quarter for his longest gain of the day. He caught three of the four passes thrown his way for 36 yards in a 19-17 defeat.

Baldwin has 176 yards and three touchdowns over his last four games. He'll look to get back on track in Week 15 against the Giants.

Doug Baldwin aiming for another productive game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/6/2013) Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin will look to keep his production going in a difficult matchup Sunday against the 49ers in Week 14.

Baldwin posted 75, 76, 63 and 77 receiving yards his past four games, scoring in three of them. He has 40 catches for 663 yards with four touchdowns this season. Baldwin had just one catch for 51 yards in his last meeting against Seattle.

He'll face a San Francisco defense that has allowed only one touchdown to opposing wide receivers over the last four games. Opposing wide receivers have scored 17.67 Fantasy points per game this season against the 49ers. Consider him a low-end starting option in most formats for Week 14.
