Doug Baldwin injury update: Seahawks receiver looks better than expected, does he have fantasy value?

Pete Carroll thinks that Baldwin might be able to return on Sunday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks slot receiver Doug Baldwin looks 'better than expected' according to Pete Carroll and that they are hoping he can play on Sunday against the Vikings. Baldwin missed last week's loss to the Lions with an ankle injury and it seemed he could be out for a prolonged period of time, but now it's possible he only misses the one game.

The undrafted receiver led the Seahawks in receiving in 2011 with 788 yards, but he has just 149 yards this season.

Fantasy Take: Baldwin has just one good fantasy game this year, 74 yards and a touchdown against the Patriots, so he's likely unowned in the vast majority of leagues. However, given 100% health and the plan to spread open the offense a big more, it's possible he could have some value later in the year. Just not this week.
