2016 Outlook: Bust (overvalued)

Last updated on Aug-12-2016 by Shawn Childs


He's being drafted way too high! Doug had two solid games (7/35 and 7/92/1) to start the 2015 season, but he seemed to wander his way through the next six games (17 catches for 218 yards and a TD on 23 targets). His low volume opportunity probably led to Baldwin landing on the waiver wire in many leagues. He dominated the Cardinals in Week 10 (7/134/1) setting the path for an impactful finish to the season. Over the last eight games of 2015, Doug had 47 catches for 625 yards and 12 TDs 63 targets. His production in TDs over this stretch was the most surprising part of his success. His catch rate (75.7) was a huge edge, but he did only average 7.9 targets per game over his hot run (6.4 on the year). A Fantasy owner in 2016 has to decide if his success is fact or fiction. His bump in opportunity was partly due to the injury to Jimmy Graham, but his production just screams 'Throw me the damn ball.' I'd love to see a bump in targets, but Seattle will still rank near the bottom of the league in passing attempts. Based on his last two years, 70+ catches for 900+ yards should be his floor while improving his position in TDs. With seven or more TDs, he will be a 200 point WR in PPR leagues or a back-end WR2. I think his profile projects more as WR3 so I won't overpay for his jump in TDs.

2016 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #1
June 12th, 2016
4.01 Brandon Marianne - It?s a PPR league and Baldwin is the lead wide out on a team with an elite quarterback. Yes, I said elite. Look at the end of last year! They say they want to go back to the run game, but I look at those back and I think that claim is dubious, at best. Last season Baldwin caught 78 passes for 1,069 yards and 14 touchdowns. The scores will probably drop, but I believe his usage will be the same.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #2
June 27th, 2016
4.06 Scout Fantasy - Matt De Lima - If the Seahawks continue to pass as often as they did last year, Baldwin is the steal of the draft if he falls past the second round.
2016 FFToolbox Mock Draft #3
August 10th, 2016
4.05 High-Stakes Expert - Kimra Schleicher - He posted 78 receptions for 1069 yards and 14 TDs last season. Signed a four-year deal for 46 million. Expect more of the same.
