Jonathan Baldwin missed practice Thursday, being downgraded from limited on Wednesday. We break down the fantasy implications.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jonathan Baldwin (hamstring) was held out of practices Thursday, reports Adam Teicher of the Kansas City Star. It's the dreaded midweek downgrade for Baldwin, who was limited in Wednesday practices. He should be considered doubtful for Week 6 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The rookie wideout has just 11 catches for 174 yards and zero TDs on the season.

Fantasy Impact: Baldwin was starting to get more snaps with Dexter McCluster also banged up, but he had just one catch on three targets in Week 5 as the Chiefs essentially abandoned the passing game against the Ravens. With Brady Quinn getting the start Sunday, Baldwin's fantasy value won't be helped at all. Jamaal Charles and Dwayne Bowe remain the only playmakers worth starting in KC's offense.
