Fantasy start/sit advice, Week 11: Doug Baldwin

The Seahawks wide receiver has been a fantasy difference maker this far. Can he turn it around in Week 11?

Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin has predictably been a low-upside fantasy play this season. Owners hoped this would change when Percy Harvin was traded to the New York Jets in the middle of the season, but the results have been indistinguishable for Baldwin. Through nine games, Baldwin has caught 38 passes for 440 yards and one touchdown. Baldwin is a solid slot receiver, but doesn't have the talent to run as the team's legit number one receiver. His fantasy production will continue to leave much to be desired until Seattle can land another top receiver.

Fantasy Impact: Things won't get any easier for Baldwin against the Kansas City Chiefs. Their secondary allows the eighth fewest fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. Seattle will continue to try to pound the ball on the ground and Baldwin won't see a healthy number of targets as a result. He's a low-upside WR4/5 and isn't worth the start in standard formats.
