|As a reliable, but uninspiring receiver, Doug Baldwin became one of Wilson's favorite targets in 2013 when he caught 50 passes for 778 yards and five touchdowns. While Golden Tate is now gone, a healthy Percy Harvin would mean even less attention going Baldwin's way this season. Of course, Harvin not seeing the field could also work in Baldwin's favor in terms of total number of targets. Those targets wouldn't be quite as high quality given that the defense would be able to focus on him a bit more, but an increase in total targets is always a good thing to see. It'd be hard to expect Baldwin to suddenly become a fantasy force, but a 65-catch season is not out of the question, especially if the Seahawks do live up to their statements of becoming a more balanced offensive attack.

Seahawks receive conditional mid-round pick

|BREAKING: The Jets have just agreed with Seattle to a trade sending WR Percy Harvin to New York for conditional pick. (Jay Glazer on Twitter)|
FFToday's Take: This one is a stunner and has fairly far-reaching implications for both teams. By making this move, the Seahawks essentially are scrapping the misdirection part of their offense and likely recommitting themselves to Marshawn Lynch. Doug Baldwin should see his stock increase the most among Seattle wideouts. The Jets now have a dynamic (albeit injury-prone) playmaker opposite Eric Decker that should aid Geno Smith's development.

Injuries the main reason for Rice's retirement

|Sidney Rice walked away from what has been his life and into a new chapter of his life on Wednesday. "Iíve hit the ground a number of times. I have quite a few injuries. Itís something Iíve always battled through and came back from. But I just figure at this point I have the rest of my life ahead of me and I want to be able to function and do things later down the road." (Seahawks.com)|
FFToday's Take: Rice battled a number of ailments including concussions and knee injuries during his brief career. His best season was in 2009 when he caught 83 passes for 1312 yards and 8 touchdowns as a member of the Vikings. The Seahawks will move forward with Percy Harvin and Doug Baldwin as their top two wideouts. Jermaine Kearse should see an increase in opportunities as a result of Rice's retirement.
