Doug Baldwin Fantasy Football News 2017

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (ankle) was back at practice on Tuesday. He hurt his ankle last Thursday and missed Seattle's preseason opener, but it was clearly a minor ailment. His fantasy stock is unaffected.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin left Thursday's practice with an apparent right ankle injury, but his coach said Friday the player made out OK. “He’s fine,” Carroll told reporters after practice. “He fell on the back of his leg, but he was very lucky he didn’t get a big ankle sprain. He stressed a couple little strains in his foot, but he seems to be fine." Carroll said Baldwin thought he'd be able to play this weekend if the game mattered. So we won't worry about the situation for now.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin managed a decent PPR line in Sunday's loss to the Packers, catching 6 balls for 46 yards. That came among just 11 targets, though, matching a season high he set back in Week 1. Baldwin also let a pass bounce off his hands for 1 of QB Russell Wilson's 5 INTs. Baldwin will remain a fine play against the Rams this Thursday, with a challenging matchup against the Cardinals in Week 16. Baldwin has, at least, caught 6+ passes in 3 straight outings and 5 of his past 6. He also caught 6 of 9 targets for 69 yards at Arizona back in Week 7.

1-3 inches of snow is expected in Green Bay today, but winds will be at just 4-8 mph. Those aren't ideal conditions, but we're not expecting weather to have a major impact on the Seahawks or the Packers, who both have experience playing in crappy weather.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said the team needs to get WR Doug Baldwin more involved. A banged up Russell Wilson hasn’t posted a TD pass since Week 4, while Baldwin has reached 70 yards only once over his last 6 games. (And he hasn’t scored since Week 3.) Still, both guys should remain locked into fantasy lineups. A Week 9 home game vs. Buffalo projects favorably.

The forecast for today's Falcons-Seahawks game calls for a 50% chance of rain with winds of 11-15 mph. That's not quite enough for us to alter our projections, but you could certainly use it as a tiebreaker when considering guys from these 2 passing and kicking games. The weather is a bigger concern for the Falcons, who play their home games in a dome.

An MRI on Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin's knee came back negative. "I'm good," he texted ESPN's Josina Anderson. Baldwin also dealt with back spasms during yesterday's loss to the Rams but was able to play through both that and the knee issue. He might be limited in practice this week but should be good to go for Sunday's game against the 49ers.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin told reporters that he injured his knee and dealt with back spasms during Sunday's loss to the Rams. He'll get an MRI on the knee tomorrow. Baldwin was able to find out the game, so he should be fine for Week 3. But we'll look for an update on him.

The Seahawks and WR Doug Baldwin have agreed to a 4-year extension. According to insider Adam Caplan, the deal is worth $46 million total with about $24 million guaranteed. For comparison, Jaguars WR Allen Hurns recently inked a 4-year, $40 million extension with $20 million guaranteed. Baldwin is coming off a breakout season that saw him set career highs with 76 catches, 1,069 yards and 14 TDs. He's not a great bet to reach those marks again in 2016, especially the 14 scores. Baldwin feels a bit overpriced at his 4th-round ADP.

In a somewhat surprising move, free-agent WR Jermaine Kearse has agreed to a new 3-year deal to stay with the Seahawks, according to Adam Schefter. It was also Schefter who reported before free agency opened that Kearse wasn't expecting to remain in Seattle and was "looking forward" to joining a new team. A weak WR market seemed likely to elevate his status. We'll see what the money looks like, but the practical impact for fantasy owners is that Kearse will continue to siphon targets in a lower-volume pass offense. He'll be no more than a late-round flier behind at least WRs Doug Baldwin and Tyler Lockett. We'll see about TE Jimmy Graham's status come summer.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hamstring) is active for today’s game against the Rams. He put in a full practice on Friday, so we’re not overly concerned about the hammy. The red-hot Baldwin remains a must-start.

The forecast for today's Rams-Seahawks game calls for temperature in the upper 30s, a 70-85% chance of rain and 3 mph winds.  Unpleasant for the fans, but not enough to impact our projections for the game.  You're safe to stick with all pieces of Seattle's passing game.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that it'd be "a surprise" if Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hamstring) did not play against the Rams today.  Baldwin is listed as questionable but put in a full practice on Friday.  Despite the late kickoff, we'd feel comfortable getting Baldwin in fantasy lineups.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hamstring) is questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams after missing practice all week. The Seattle Times reports that HC Pete Carroll said he expects Baldwin to play but that it might be a game-time decision. Baldwin's ridiculous recent hot streak makes him well worth waiting for, but the 4:25 p.m. kickoff means you'll need to secure an insurance option at WR from Seattle, Cincinnati, Denver, Arizona, Green Bay, Jacksonville, New Orleans, Minnesota or the New York Giants. Baldwin's absence might mean a few more targets for WRs Tyler Lockett and Jermaine Kearse.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Steelers. He’s a viable WR3 in a game with sneaky shootout potential.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (ankle) practiced on Thursday and Friday and is probable for this weekend’s game against the Steelers. He’s on the WR3 radar in what could turn into a high-scoring contest.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Monday that WR Doug Baldwin suffered a "minor" ankle injury in Sunday's win over the 49ers.  Carroll is "optimistic" that Baldwin will be available for this weekend's game against the Steelers.  He's caught 13 balls for 194 yards and a score over his past 2 games.  If the ankle injury isn't serious, Baldwin will be on the WR3 radar for Week 12.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (groin) is active for today's game against the Giants.  He's a solid WR3 with New York missing CB Prince Amukamara.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (groin) put in a full practice on Friday and is listed as probable for Week 10.  The groin isn't an issue, making Baldwin a high-end WR3 play against a Giants secondary missing CB Prince Amukamara. 

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (groin) returned to a limited practice on Thursday.  It gives him a chance to play against the Giants this weekend.  We'd feel a lot better about using Baldwin in fantasy if he gets in a full practice tomorrow.
