Baldwin secured four of six targets for 29 yards in Thursday's 27-17 preseason victory over the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Russell Wilson's favorite target actually gained 27 of his 29 yards on a single play, a nifty grab on a late first-quarter crossing pattern. Baldwin is one of the more intriguing fantasy options heading into 2016, given his impressive second-half statistical explosion last season that led to career highs in receptions, targets, yardage and touchdowns.

Baldwin hauled in both of his targets for 23 yards in Saturday's preseason debut at Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

Baldwin immediately renewed his rapport with quarterback Russell Wilson, coming down with catches on each of Seattle's first two offensive plays. The veteran receiver didn't see much action in this one, but he should play a major role in the passing game after finding the end zone on 14 of his 78 receptions in 2015.

Baldwin returned to full participation in practice with a touchdown reception after missing about a week with a sore Achilles' tendon, the Tacoma New Tribune reports.

EDGE Analysis

Baldwin got the TD pass from Russell Wilson out of the slot on the last play of practice. He was injured when a teammate stepped on the back of his foot, but it was never serious.

Baldwin (quad) is close to returning to practice, Curtis Crabtree of Sports Radio KJR reports.

EDGE Analysis

A teammate stepped on Baldwin's ankle/Achilles, but with no indication the injury is serious, he's expected to get back out on the practice field within the next few days. While a clear favorite to lead Seattle in targets, the 5-foot-10 Baldwin will have a tough time reaching double-digit touchdowns for a second straight season, after turning an incredible 18 percent of his receptions into scores last year. Prior to 2015, he'd scored on just 12.7 percent on his career catches.

The Seahawks and Baldwin agreed to a four-year contract extension Tuesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

EDGE Analysis

Baldwin's calm demeanor throughout the process was noteworthy, and he'll now be paid handsomely to the tune of at least $11 million per season. The extension comes on the heels of a breakout in which he churned out 78 catches (on 103 targets) for 1,069 yards and 14 touchdowns. However, the majority of that production (47-724-12) was accumulated in the final eight games, as coordinator Darrell Bevell opened up the offense in the wake of a sieve-like O-line and injuries to Marshawn Lynch and Jimmy Graham (knee). Baldwin will be hard-pressed to replicate those numbers moving forward due to a lack of big plays (just three receptions of 40-plus yards) and 17 red-zone targets to his name in 2015. The rapport between Baldwin and Russell Wilson can't be denied, though, so another fruitful campaign isn't out of the question.

Baldwin is calm over his current contract situation, despite his desire for a lucrative long-term deal, ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Baldwin heads into this season slated to earn $4 million in the final year of the three-year, $13 million extension he signed in 2014, but he's far outperformed that value, having registered career-highs in catches (78), yards (1,069) and touchdowns (14) last season. Although Baldwin remains in search of a considerable raise, his contract situation is not expected to become a distraction, as the Seahawks want to secure his future as well. While talks between the parties lie ahead, Baldwin understands his role and is determined to continue to prove his worth in the upcoming campaign, when his fantasy stock also sits at its highest since entering the league in 2011.

Baldwin caught eight of 12 targets for 82 yards in Sunday's loss to Carolina.

EDGE Analysis

Sunday was just Baldwin's second scoreless game in his last eight contests. Entering 2015, Baldwin's career high in touchdown catches was five, a total that he matched in a pair of two-game stretches in Weeks 12 and 13 and 14 and 15 on his way to tying the league lead this season. Expect his contract status to be a big discussion this off season. If Seattle does not extend him, Baldwin will be a very dangerous man - a touchdown-tallying deep threat on a contract year.

Baldwin nabbed five of seven targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's win over Minnesota.

EDGE Analysis

Baldwin finally put the Seahawks on the board early in the third quarter with a three-yard quick out into the end zone. Baldwin practically lived in the end zone during the second half of the season, over a quarter of his 47 receptions in the final eight games of the season going for touchdowns. For perspective, only five other receivers in the league had as many touchdowns during the entire season as Baldwin had in the final eight games. Seattle travels to Carolina next week, a team that held Baldwin to 23 yards in Week 6. That game was, of course, before Baldwin became the force he has shown himself to be over the past two months.

Baldwin caught five of seven targets for 46 yards in Sunday's 36-6 win at Arizona.

EDGE Analysis

Baldwin went off for a 7/134/1 stat line in the first meeting against Arizona, but didn't do much Sunday as Russell Wilson threw three touchdowns in the first half, before the Seahawks' defense took over in the second half. Even though his touchdown streak ended at five games, Baldwin will be a hot commodity for those participating in fantasy leagues during the NFL Playoffs, with he and QB Russell Wilson really clicking over the last two months.

Baldwin (hamstring) caught eight of 10 targets for 118 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 23-17 loss to the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Baldwin's incredible hot streak finally came to an end, failing to catch multiple touchdowns for the first time in five games, but he still managed to be productive, grabbing a contested 25-yard score in the third quarter. Despite cooling off a bit, Baldwin should continue to be a factor in the playoffs for Seattle, which has really opened things up offensively on the shoulders of QB Russell Wilson. In the regular season finale next week, Baldwin and the Seahawks will play at Arizona.
