2013 Outlook: Bust (overvalued)

Last updated on Aug-20-2013 by Chris Weeks

Before his rookie and second season, we looked at Baldwin and thought that maybe this is when it all comes together. Alas, we're still only imagining as the former first round pick has 41 receptions and two scores in 26 games. Baldwin has tremendous size (6-foot-4) and natural ability, but he hasn't been able to put that talent to use in the NFL. Having a high-percentage passer like Alex Smith should help with better throws, but that probably won't be enough. For those thinking this could be Baldwin's year, we should not that taking any NFL starting WR in the final round or two is fine and he might beat out Donnie Avery for the starting job opposite Dwayne Bowe. However, he shouldn't beat out more worthy fantasy options for a spot on your roster.

Update: Jon Baldwin was traded to the 49ers in a straight up trade with the Chiefs for second year wide receiver AJ Jenkins. Trash for trash? Maybe. Baldwin could slot right into the WR4 spot in the Niners offense, or he could get cut before the season. Let's see how he adjusts.

2013 Mock Draft Results

Month Position Franchise/Comments
2013 FFToolbox Staff Mock Draft #1
June 18th, 2013
15.01 FFToolbox - Jeb Gorham - I think the addition of Alex Smith in KC boosts Baldwin's value significantly. Smith will be looking to build chemistry with his new wide outs and I believe he an Baldwin will hit it off. Baldwin could be worth it in rounds 15-20 in your drafts.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #2
July 2nd 2013
16.02 BFD Fantasy 
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #1
June 25th, 2013
17.06 DynastyLeague Football - Andy Reid likes restoration projects so hopefully Baldwin is his personal project in KC. Even though nobody gets excited about Alex Smith, he can run an offense and Reid has done more with a lot less.
2013 FFToolbox Expert Mock Draft #3
July 9th, 2013
14.12 FantasySharks
