Doug Baldwin injury update: Out with high ankle sprain, zero fantasy value

Grant Halverson

Doug Baldwin has been ruled out for Week 8 against the Lions. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin (ankle) has been officially ruled out for Sunday's game against the Detroit Lions. Baldwin suffered a high ankle sprain in Week 7 against the 49ers, and did not practice at all this week. He's week-to-week and there's no timetable for his return.

Baldwin has struggled to live up to his impressive rookie year, with just 11 catches for 149 yards and one TD.

Fantasy Impact: Look for Ben Obomanu, Braylon Edwards and Charly Martin to fight for snaps in the slot position. Baldwin has been a big fantasy disappointment this year, and given the nature of high ankle sprains, there's no telling when he'll be back.

Fantasy owners should probably cut him loose.
