Seahawks' Doug Baldwin apologizes for Super Bowl penalty


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/17/2015) Seahawks wideout Doug Baldwin apologized to the team's fans for picking up a 15-yard penalty in Super Bowl 49, according to the Seattle Times

Baldwin appeared on a local radio show on Monday, and said he made a mistake in the moment. "In that moment it was just a reaction," Baldwin said. "So obviously if I could go back, I would take it back."

Baldwin admitted his actions, which picked up the penalty, were directed at opposing cornerback Darrelle Revis. "There was competitive stuff going on in that game and in that moment I just let out what I felt personally," Baldwin said. He also admitted he was frustrated by his lack of opportunities during the game.


Seahawks' Doug Baldwin earns fully guaranteed contract for 2015


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/7/2015) Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin's 2015 contract, worth $2.8 million, became guaranteed for $2.3 million Saturday, according to CBSSports.com's Joel Corry. Baldwin also will receive a $1.6 million signing bonus.

Baldwin is under contract with Seattle through 2016, when he is scheduled to make $4 million with a $1.6 million signing bonus. In his four seasons with the Seahawks, Baldwin has totaled 196 catches for 2,757 yards and 15 touchdowns.


Report: Doug Baldwin fined for Super Bowl celebration


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(2/4/2015) Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin has been fined for his controversial celebration following a touchdown in the Super Bowl, according to FOX Sports.

The fine is the league minimum allowed for such a penalty at $11,025. After scoring, Baldwin put the ball on the ground, squatted over it and pretended to relieve himself over it. NBC cameras showing the celebration quickly cut away once producers realized what was going on.

After the game, a 28-24 Patriots win, Baldwin told reporters that the celebration was directed at a group of people. He would not name who.


Seahawks' Doug Baldwin questions team's final play


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(2/1/2015) Seahawks wideout Doug Baldwin questioned the team's final play during Super Bowl 49, according to ESPN.

With the ball on the one yard line, Seattle opted to pass instead of hand the ball to Marshawn Lynch. The pass would result in an interception, clinching the game for the Patriots. The playcall caused some Seahawks to question the decision. "I think we all were surprised," Baldwin said. "We still had a timeout and felt we should take a shot. I don’t know, man. I’m just trying to make up an explanation." 

Offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell said he made the call, though head coach Pete Carroll also took the blame for the play during the postgame. Carroll told reporters, "It was not the right matchup for us to run the football. We threw the ball to kind of waste that play. The guy made a great play that no one thought he could do." 

Baldwin was allegedly not the only player on the club to question the final play of the game. 


Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin gets 106 yards in win


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(1/18/2015) Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin caught six passes for 106 yards in Seattle's 28-22 win over the Packers to send them to the Super Bowl.

Baldwin, who was targeted nine times, caught his biggest pass of the day in overtime when quarterback Russell Wilson found him down the field for a 35-yard gain. The play set up Wilson to found Jermaine Kearse for the game-winning touchdown.

It was Baldwin's second career playoff game with at least 100 receiving yards.


Doug Baldwin takes advantage of injury


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(12/22/2014) Wide receiver Doug Baldwin hasn't emerged as the Seahawks' clear No. 1 as Fantasy owners had hoped after the team shipped Percy Harvin to the Jets, sometimes taking a back seat to Jermaine Kearse. But after Kearse left early Week 16 at Arizona with a hamstring injury, Baldwin didn't have as much competition for looks, catching seven passes for 113 yards on a season-high 11 targets.

It was his second game in three with more than 90 yards, but it was also just his second in eight with more than 60, to give you some idea how much Kearse has interfered with his production.

Also helping Baldwin in this one was the fact that quarterback Russell Wilson threw for a season-high 339 yards. In the Seahawks' inconsistent passing attack, you couldn't count on Baldwin for consistent production even if he was the clear No. 1.

Still, if Kearse is out for Week 17 against St. Louis, Baldwin deserves a longer look in Fantasy, particularly in leagues that require three wide receivers.


Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin goes over 100 yards Week 16


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/22/2014) Seahawks wideout Doug Baldwin went over 100 yards Week 16 against the Cardinals.

Baldwin hauled in a team-high seven catches for 113 yards. Baldwin was quarterback Russell Wilson's favorite option during the contest, receiving 11 targets. While Baldwin didn't lead the team in yardage, he was Wilson's most consistent target. It was Baldwin's first 100 yard game since Week 6.

Baldwin will look for more Week 17 against the Rams.


Seahawks' Doug Baldwin finds the end zone Week 14


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) Seahawks wideout Doug Baldwin managed to find the end zone Week 14 against the Eagles. 

Baldwin showed off his deep-play ability, averaging 19.4 yards per catch. He finished with five receptions for 97 yards. Baldwin's score came in the fourth quarter. With Seattle up by three, Russell Wilson found Baldwin on a 23 yard touchdown reception to open up the lead. That was all the Seahawks would need, as the Eagles did not score again. Baldwin tied for the team lead in targets with seven.

He'll take on the 49ers Week 15. 


Seahawks' pass catchers limited by light workload in Week 13


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2014) Seahawks tight end Tony Moeaki led his offense with 63 receiving yards on just one reception in his team's 19-3 win over the 49ers in Week 13.

Moeaki caught a pass of about 12 yards near the sideline early in the second quarter and ran past his defender to bring the ball all the way down to the one-yard line before being caught. The Seahawks weren't able to punch the ball into the end zone on the drive, but a dominant performance by the defense meant the points left on the board wouldn't come back to haunt the offense.

The rest of the receiving corps didn't have much of a workload in the win Thursday, with quarterback Russell Wilson completing just 15 passes on 22 attempts. Tight end Luke Willson led the Seahawks with four receptions and six targets, gaining just 39 yards in the game. Wide receiver Jermaine Kearse managed three receptions for 34 yards, while wide receiver Doug Baldwin could only haul in two passes for 28 yards. Rookie Paul Richardson was able to catch his only target for six yards.

The Seahawks have a trip to Philadelphia on the schedule in Week 14.


Doug Baldwin showing his limitations


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/24/2014) When the Seahawks traded wide receiver Percy Harvin to the Jets prior to Week 7, the natural assumption was that Doug Baldwin would inherit a lot of his looks. And that's exactly what happened that first week at St. Louis, when Baldwin caught seven passes for 123 yards and a touchdown.

But his numbers have steadily waned since that season-best performance. He hit a new low Week 12 against Arizona, catching just two passes for 6 yards. Worse yet, those were his only two targets on the day.

Baldwin has had less than 50 receiving yards in four straight games, averaging 4.3 catches for 30.0 yards during that stretch. The good news is no other Seahawks wide receiver has really stepped up during that time. The bad news is quarterback Russell Wilson has averaged just 185.0 passing yards and has done his best to divide it between as many targets as possible.

Because he's the most notable player in the Seahawks receiving corps, Baldwin is still capable of delivering a big game, but with the direction the Seahawks offense has taken in recent weeks, you should no longer expect it, not even when he has a favorable matchup. His matchup couldn't be any less favorable Week 13 at San Francisco.


Seahawks receivers stay quiet in Week 12 win vs. Cardinals


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette led his team in receiving yards Sunday, catching his only target for 48 yards in his team's 19-3 win over the Cardinals in Week 12.

No one receiver was able to deliver a breakout performance on a day where the Seahawks led for most the game and attempted just 22 passes. Quarterback Russell Wilson hit nine different receivers with completions in the game, with tight end Tony Moeaki hauling in a team-high four catches for 34 yards.

Tight end Cooper Helfet caught both of his targets for 27 yards and a touchdown, doing most of the work on the 20-yard score after catching the ball behind the line of scrimmage. Tight end Luke Willson (21 yards) and wide receivers Jermaine Kearse (19 yards) and Kevin Norwood (10 yards) each managed just one catch. Wide receiver Doug Baldwin caught two passes but for only six yards.

The Seahawks face a quick turnaround, with a Thursday night matchup with the 49ers on the schedule for Week 13.


Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin finds the end zone Week 11


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) Seahawks wideout Doug Baldwin managed to find the end zone Week 11.

Baldwin caught a team-high six passes for 45 yards during the contest. He tied for the team-lead with nine targets. Though Baldwin scored, he finished third in receiving during the contest. He hauled in a 7 yard strike from Russell Wilson in the second quarter for his only touchdown. The team would go to Baldwin later in the game on a fourth down fade, but the ball seemed to be overthrown. Baldwin attempted to look for a penalty, but didn't get one.

He'll look for more Week 12 against the Cardinals. 


Seahawks pass catchers do nothing Week 10


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) The Seahawks pass catchers did little Week 10 against the Giants.

Cooper Helfet finished second on the club in yardage with just 32 yards. All of his yards came on just one catch. Doug Baldwin had a team-high four receptions, but only gained 31 yards. Ricardo Lockette caught one ball for 16 yards. 

The three will take on the Chiefs Week 11. 


Marshawn Lynch, Doug Baldwin will be active Week 10


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) Seahawks offensive stars Marshawn Lynch and Doug Baldwin are active Week 10 against the Giants.

Both players came into the game listed as probable. Lynch is dealing with a calf injury. Baldwin has a groin issue. The team will also have Michael Bennett, Jordan Hill, Russell Okung, O'Brien Schofield and Max Unger. All five players were also listed as probable coming into the contest.

Marcus Burley and Byron Maxwell should play as well. They were both listed as questionable. Burley is dealing with a hamstring injury, Maxwell has a calf issue. 

Guard Stephen Schilling is the only doubtful player who is active for the game.


Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin is 'good to go' for Sunday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(11/7/2014) Seahawks wideout Doug Baldwin is "good to go" for Sunday's home clash against the Giants, coach Pete Carroll told reporters, according to the Everett Herald Friday. Baldwin skipped Wednesday's practice with a groin injury, but has participated in back-to-back practices leading up to Week 10.

He has 34 catches for 409 yards and a touchdown this season.


Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin able to practice Thursday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/6/2014) Seahawks wideout Doug Baldwin was able to practice Thursday.

Baldwin is dealing with a groin injury, and skipped Wednesday's practice due to the injury. He was able to return on a limited basis Thursday. His status will be determined depending on how much he's able to practice Friday.


Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin in danger of missing Week 10


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(11/5/2014) Seahawks No. 1 receiver Doug Baldwin injured his groin in Sunday's win over the Raiders and might not be able to play Week 10 against the Giants, coach Pete Carroll told the Seattle Times. Baldwin, however, told Carroll he intends to play, the coach added.

Baldwin leads the team with 49 catches for 409 yards.


Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin catches five passes Week 9


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) Seahawks wideout Doug Baldwin hauled in five passes Week 9 against the Raiders.

Baldwin gained 38 yards, finishing second on the team in receiving yards. Baldwin was targeted a team-high seven times during the contest. Russell Wilson had a bit of a tough game, so no Seahawks receiver turned in a strong game. 

Baldwin will look for more Week 10 against the Giants. 


Doug Baldwin the unquestioned No. 1 option


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin was unable to follow up his breakout performance with a similar outing in Week 8, but he did show once again that he is the top option in the passing game in Seattle's 13-9 win over the Panthers Sunday.

Baldwin was targeted a team-high eight times in the win, and also led the team with six receptions for 61 yards. He has led the team in each of those categories in both games since Seattle's unexpected trade of Percy Harvin, and there is little reason to think that will change moving forward.

The question for Baldwin won't be his role, but whether he can take advantage of it. He may be miscast as a No. 1 option, but the Seahawks don't really have any other options. Given how many passes are going to come his way, Baldwin's floor should be a low-end Fantasy option; the lingering question is just how high his ceiling can be on a consistent basis.  


Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin leads the way Week 8


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(10/26/2014) Seahawks wideout Doug Baldwin led the way Week 8 against the Panthers.

Baldwin picked up 61 yards on six carries. He was targeted a team-high eight times. No Seahawks receiver had a breakout game, though Baldwin was far and away the most targeted option. He'll look for more Week 9 against the Raiders. 


Throw Doug Baldwin right in fire


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/23/2014) If you own Doug Baldwin in Fantasy, chances are you just added him in response to his 123-yard, touchdown-scoring performance at St. Louis in Week 7. Hey, with Percy Harvin following Golden Tate out the door and the Seahawks throwing the ball more than ever, somebody has be on the other end of Russell Wilson's passes.

But you may still be reluctant to start Baldwin Week 8 at Carolina just because ... well, it's not like Harvin was doing all that much for the Seahawks. Where was Baldwin before the trade?

Harvin may not have been giving the Seahawks much yardage, but a lot of the plays when he took the field were designed specifically for him. He had a decent number of targets and several carries as well. On average, it was probably about eight plays each week that are now going to someone else.

That's a significant number, especially since nobody new was added with his removal. And again, the Seahawks have been throwing the ball more and more in recent weeks with their defense showing signs of weakness.

The Panthers aren't so great against the pass, ranking 22nd of 32 teams, and have been especially bad against wide receivers, allowing the fourth-most Fantasy points per game to them. I say you run Baldwin out there right away.


Seahawks receivers make for good waiver-wire pickups


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/21/2014) With last week's stunning trade of Percy Harvin to the Jets, the Seahawks have to determine a new hierarchy in the passing game. And the big winner, after one week, was Doug Baldwin, who Jamey Eisenberg tabs as the top waiver-wire target among wide receivers for Week 8.

Baldwin hauled in seven passes for 123 yards and a touchdown in Week 7, his first game without Harvin by his side this season. Fellow Seahawk Jermaine Kearse also ends up in Jamey's column, though just as the eighth receiver in the priority list after his three-catch, 50-yard showing Sunday. 


Doug Baldwin, Jermaine Kearse enter discussion


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/19/2014) Though Percy Harvin's production wasn't so great for the Seahawks, he was a big part of the game plan for the team's first five games this season, so you had to figure with him out of the picture -- he was traded to the Jets over the weekend -- somebody on the Seahawks would get more of an opportunity.

Turns out that somebody was exactly who everybody expected it to be: Doug Baldwin. In his first game without either Harvin or Golden Tate (now with the Lions) to cut into his production, he was clearly quarterback Russell Wilson's go-to guy, leading the team in receptions with seven, receiving yards with 123 and targets with 11. The targets were a career high, and the receptions and receiving yards trailed jut his eight-catch, 136-yards performance against the Giants in 2011.

Safe to say he's a must-add off the waiver wire for a team that may have to throw more than it's used to with its defense showing some vulnerability. Of course, Jermaine Kearse is gaining Fantasy appeal as well. He had only three catches for 50 yards, but his seven targets were second-most on the team. In the past, the Seahawks haven't been able to sustain two wide receivers for Fantasy purposes, but again, after two straight losses, this season is shaping up to be a little different for them.


Doug Baldwin emerges as clear No. 1 receiver


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(10/19/2014) With the trade of Percy Harvin, the Seahawks' Doug Baldwin emerged as the team's clear No. 1 receiver Week 7 at St. Louis. Baldwin drew a game-high 11 targets and caught seven passes for 123 yards and a touchdown.

It was his second career 100-yard game. Baldwin got going early, catching a first-quarter pass over the middle and shedding linebacker Alec Ogletree's tackle for a 49-yard gain. Baldwin scored on a 9-yard reception in the fourth quarter, his first touchdown this season.

He'll visit the Panthers in Week 8.


Seahawks' pass catchers do little Week 6


by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst
(10/12/2014) The Seahawks' passing game was atrocious in Week 6. Aside from Jermaine Kearse, who caught three passes for 62 yards, no other wideout or tight end had more than two catches or 32 yards.

Receiver Doug Baldwin caught two of three targets for 32 yards, while tight end Luke Willson secured two of six targets for 11 yards. Wideout Ricardo Lockette had an 8-yard catch, tight end Cooper Helfet a 7-yarder.

Receiver Bryan Walters mustered a 5-yard grab on three targets.
