Doug Baldwin turns in efficient fantasy day with limited opportunities

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

The Seahawks wide receiver performed well despite limited targets in Week 11. We break down the fantasy implications.

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin caught two passes for 63 yards and a touchdown in the team's 41-20 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 11. Baldwin's catches came on the only two targets he received from quarterback Russell Wilson in the game.

Fantasy impact: Baldwin's effort was solid, given the fact he wasn't really too involved in the contest. That said, fantasy owners shouldn't let the yardage total or the touchdown fool them.

With Percy Harvin getting into game shape and sure to see more snaps as the regular season winds down, Baldwin looks to be the receiver whose fantasy value will suffer most.

Prior to the game against the Vikings, Baldwin was targeted 18 times in the Seahawks‘ previous two matchups. It's obvious that going down to two against the Vikings was quite a drop.

Golden Tate has the edge over Baldwin on the depth chart and Percy Harvin is the most talented receiver on the team, so fantasy owners may want to look elsewhere for a receiver if they own Baldwin at this point.
