Over the last three years, Baldwin has finished seventh, 10th and 13th in fantasy scoring among wide receivers. A highly efficient receiver, Baldwin has hauled in 71.1 percent of his targets over the last three seasons, while averaging 12.9 yards per catch. With TE Jimmy Graham and WR Paul Richardson departing in the offseason via free agency, Baldwin could get a significant boost in targets. Given Baldwin’s established rapport with ace QB Russell Wilson, a target increase could conceivably lead to Baldwin’s biggest season yet. The tough, hard-nosed Baldwin hasn’t missed a game in the last five seasons.
With few other established pass catchers in Seattle, Baldwin might often be shadowed by opponents’ top cornerbacks. Baldwin turns 30 in September.
Since his breakout season in 2015, Baldwin has settled in as a dependable if unspectacular fantasy performer. In 12-team leagues, he’s either a low-end WR1 or a high-end WR2.
