Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid is losing patience with wide receiver Jon Baldwin. After another disappointing preseason game Friday, Reid told reporters that Baldwin needs to step up his game. "I can tell you that when given the opportunity in this league you'd better catch the football."
Baldwin has zero catches through two preseason games. He was targeted three times in Friday's 15-13 loss to the San Francisco 49ers, but couldn't haul in any passes and had a bad drop.
Fantasy impact: The former first-round pick is on the fast track to being a bust. Since being drafted in 2011, Baldwin has a grand total of 41 receptions, 579 yards and two touchdowns. Those are mediocre numbers for just one season, let alone a two-year NFL career.
Baldwin has already fallen behind Donnie Avery on the depth chart, and may not survive roster cuts at the end of the month. He's not worth even a late-round flier in the deepest of fantasy leagues.
