Jon Baldwin Has Little Fantasy Value After Week 1

The Chiefs did not include Jon Baldwin in their passing attack against the Falcons. We break down the fantasy implications.

Jon Baldwin failed to record a catch in the Chiefs regular season opener against the Falcons. He was not even targeted by Matt Cassel on Sunday, as Baldwin continues to work on developing a role in Kansas City's offense.

Fantasy Impact: The Chiefs passing attack involved seven different players throughout the regular season opener against the Falcons. Unfortunately for Baldwin's owners, he was not included in the activity in Week 1. Romeo Crennel said afterwards that Baldwin is still working on finding his spot in the offense, and that he believes his second-year receiver will make an impact eventually this season. Baldwin has been pegged as a sleeper for 2012, but that prediction isn't going to hold any weight unless he really steps things up. Don't bother even considering him in your starting lineup at this point.
