2014 Outlook: Quality BackupLast updated on Jul-14-2014 by Brad Kruse
Since he came onto the scene as an undrafted free agent, Baldwin has been an integral part of the offense. He has dependable hands and the trust of Russell Wilson. Baldwin has averaged 14.9 yards per catch and caught over 60-percent of the passes thrown his way. He's a nice point per catch player at times, but not consistent enough to be a full-time starter for your team. He'll be involved in Seattle's offense, although Harvin could dominate the targets. Baldwin will have a solid week when he can find the end zone, but that doesn't happen often enough to depend on him as anything more than a bench player.
According to Jay Glazer via twitter, the Seattle Seahawks have traded Percy Harvin to the New York Jets for a conditional draft pick(s). The sixth-year receiver has 225 total yards from scrimmage and only one touchdown on the season so far.Fantasy Analysis:
Even with the addition of Eric Decker in the offseason, the Jets currently rank 30th in passing offense so far this season. The Jets clearly wanted to add a dynamic playmaker to their roster and have done so with Percy Harvin. The question is, if Russell Wilson and the Seahawks offense couldn't get Harvin going, how can Geno Smith fare any better?
Harvin's numbers would be significantly better had several touchdowns not been called back, and he should still be in your starting lineup (not this week since the Jets have already played). Considering his ability to break out from the run game as well as the pass, Harvin can still be an every-week flex player with upside.
While Geno Smith remains a QB2 on your roster, his additional weapon should definitely put him on your radar.
Seattle wide receiver Jermaine Kearse could see a big increase in targets with Harvin gone, Doug Baldwin should also benefit.
