Doug Baldwin Fantasy Football News 2019

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin revealed in a radio appearance on Wednesday that he expects to have another surgery this offseason. NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reports that Baldwin is scheduled to visit Dr. William Meyers about a potential sports hernia surgery. That'd be in addition to the knee and shoulder surgeries he had earlier this offseason. Turning 31 in September, Baldwin's body might be starting to fail him. He'll be worth monitoring closely this summer.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll revealed from the Combine on Thursday that WR Doug Baldwin recently had surgeries on his knee and shoulder. Baldwin was banged up all last season, starting with a left knee issue when he arrived at training camp, then a sprained right MCL in Week 1 and finally a hip injury in Week 13. We don't have any details yet on the knee and shoulder procedures, but Carroll said Baldwin "should be fine" for the start of the 2019 campaign. If healthy, he'll be a solid bounce-back candidate.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hip) is active for today’s game against the 49ers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, but don’t expect him to be at 100% today. Baldwin is just a low-end WR3.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hip) is expected to play against the 49ers today. He's listed as questionable after limited practices on Thursday and Friday. Baldwin is just a low-end WR3 at less than 100%.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hip) is listed as questionable for this weekend's game against the 49ers. He got in limited practices on Thursday and Friday. “Doug did really well,” HC Pete Carroll said after Friday's workout. “He practiced, made it through it today. He did fine. It looks like he’s playing.” At less than 100% and in Seattle's run-heavy offense, Baldwin is no better than a WR3.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that the Chiefs believe CB Kendall Fuller suffered a wrist fracture in Thursday night's loss to the Chargers that will require surgery. That likely means Fuller is done for the season, which would leave the K.C. defense without its slot corner. That'd be good news for Seahawks slot WR Doug Baldwin in Week 16 if he's ready for the teams' showdown.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hip) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. That gives him a shot to play against the 49ers this weekend, but we'll see what he's able to do in Friday's practice.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hip) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Pete Carroll did say that Baldwin participated in the walkthrough and is "day-to-day." Still, he seems no better than 50/50 to play against the 49ers this weekend. We'll get another update tomorrow.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hip) is inactive for tonight's game against the Vikings. That leaves Tyler Lockett and David Moore as Seattle's top 2 WRs. Lockett was already a fantasy starter. Moore jumps into WR3 range now and is an upside DFS play.

ESPN's Adam Schefter asked a Seahawks source if WR Doug Baldwin (hip) will play against the Vikings tonight and got this reply: "I wouldn’t think so, but you never know with Doug. I’m sure he will try.” A final decision on Baldwin might not be made until pregame warmups, but fantasy owners shouldn't be planning on having him. Baldwin's absence would give WRs Tyler Lockett and David Moore nice target boosts.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll labeled WR Doug Baldwin (hip) a game-time decision for Monday night's tilt with the Vikings. Carroll also said that Baldwin's hip injury is related to his previous groin issue. The late kickoff obviously puts fantasy owners in a tough spot. You need to have a viable alternative if you're hoping to use Baldwin -- and the only one potentially available would be David Moore. Even if Baldwin ends up active, he'll be a risky WR3.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (hip) has yet to practice this week. He's been sitting out a bunch of practices this year but hasn't missed a game since Week 3. We'll see if he gets on the field on Saturday, but we're still expecting Baldwin to play against the Vikings on Monday night.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (groin) isn’t listed on the final Week 13 injury report. He’s fine to get into fantasy lineups as a high-floor WR3. Baldwin has caught 5+ balls in 3 straight.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (knee) is active for today’s game against the Cardinals. He’s been sidelined since suffering a Grade 2 torn MCL in the season opener. Baldwin missed all of August with trouble with the opposite knee. It’s unclear if he’s ready for a full workload today, making him a risk/reward fantasy play.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said Friday that WR Doug Baldwin (knee) will play against the Cardinals this weekend. "He looked great [in practice]," Carroll said. "He was explosive. The suddenness that we have come to love in his play was there. He caught the ball great." Baldwin has been sidelined since Week 1 and was limited in practice this week, so it's unclear if he'll be a full-go on Sunday. Consider him a risk/reward WR3 for Week 4. Baldwin's return is a nice boost for QB Russell Wilson.

Seahawks HC Pete Carroll said WR Doug Baldwin (knee) will practice on Wednesday and has a chance to play against the Cardinals this weekend. "He looks really good," Carroll added. Baldwin has been sidelined since suffering a Grade 2 torn ACL in the season opener. Seattle desperately needs him back to add some juice to this passing game. The 'Hawks are sitting 22nd in passing yards through 3 weeks.

As expected, the Seahawks have ruled WR Doug Baldwin out for Monday night's game at Chicago. Tyler Lockett and Brandon Marshall should lead the WR corps in a spot that's not particularly attractive for fantasy upside.

Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin is dealing with a sprained MCL. But we still don't have an exact timetable for his return. HC Pete Carroll touched on the situation on Tuesday. “He’s really going to go a few days at a time here and see what happens,” Carroll said. “We’ll wait and see. We don’t know yet. It could be a couple of weeks and we will find out. He is as tough as they get and we’ll need to wait. He just got his stuff back, his science back, and we will find out in the next couple of days what that means.” Carroll is always over-optimistic about his players' injuries, so the fact that he said it could be a couple of weeks has us thinking Baldwin will miss at least that much time. We'll continue to keep a close eye on his status.
