Seahawks WR Doug Baldwin has been sidelined by hamstring strain

It hasn't gotten a lot of press, but Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin @DougBaldwinJr has missed the first two preseason games because of a hamstring strain. That's the bad news. The good news is that Baldwin has resumed practicing and could be able to play Friday versus the Kansas City Chiefs.

Fantasy Analysis:

There isn't a ton to love about the Seahawks' passing attack, but Baldwin is the player I have been targeting. Sidney Rice is probably their No. 1 WR, but he seems to be always hurt, and his name value leads him to be overrated in drafts. Ben Obomanu is average. Golden Tate apparently hasn't impressed his coaches enough to deserve a more prominent role. Terrell Owens and Braylon Edwards? No. The speedy Baldwin, working out of the slot, actually led the team in catches, receiving yards and receiving touchdowns last season. I think people forget that. Besides the injury-prone Rice, Baldwin is Seattle's most talented wideout. I will gladly take him in the late rounds.
