    Doug Baldwin scores Seahawks' lone touchdown in Week 4 win

    Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin hauled in three passes (on four targets) for 36 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's game against the Lions.Baldwin started the scoring Monday night with a 24-yard touchdown reception during the second quarter, showing good field awareness to secure the catch in the back of the end zone. Now with two touchdowns through the Seahawks' first four games, Baldwin has also caught 20 of the 24 passes through his way this season, evidencing his solid understanding with quarterback Russell Wilson. Although Baldwin has only cracked the 40-yard barrier in one game thus far, he remains a notable presence in Seattle's offense and has made the most of his opportunities to score thus far.

    WR Doug Baldwin leads Seahawks in targets through first two weeks

    Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin caught seven passes for 92 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in Sunday's 27-27 loss to the Packers. Despite the offseason acquisition of Jimmy Graham, it was Baldwin who led the Seahawks in targets, bringing his two-week total to a team-high 17. Though he can be counted on for a few receptions each week, Baldwin has never been a great source of yards or touchdowns, and there's not much reason to expect a change. He does get a soft matchup with the Bears in Week 3, but the Seahawks will be a heavy favorite, which figures to restrict his opportunities.

    Seahawks' Doug Baldwin questions team's final play

    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

    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.

    Doug Baldwin takes advantage of injury

    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.
