|With Percy Harvin and Golden Tate now off the roster, Doug Baldwin sits atop the Seattle depth chart as the team’s top receiving option. That should worry Seahawk fans as the team really hasn’t done much to address this obvious position of need. Baldwin has been serviceable, but doesn’t do much to light up the fantasy scoreboard. Through four seasons, Baldwin has 196 receptions for 2,757 yards and 15 touchdowns. His best season came in 2014 as he started all 16 games for the first time in his career which translated to career highs in receptions (66) and yards (825). Unfortunately all those receptions and yards only produced three touchdowns, which meant Baldwin remained on the outside looking in as even a Flex play in standard leagues as he finished as the No. 47 wide receiver on the year. With Graham now on the roster, don’t look for Baldwin’s redzone opportunities to increase in 2015. He’ll likely lead all Seattle wide receivers in receptions again this season, but that won’t make him a particularly tantalizing fantasy option if he can’t get into the end zone. Baldwin’s low ADP means you won’t have to spend much to get him, but there are other options being selected around that area who provide a much higher ceiling.
| Graham suffers patellar injury, out for the season|
Seahawks lose starting TE

|After the game, head coach Pete Carroll said the injury to Jimmy Graham’s patellar tendon will require surgery. Carroll gave no return timetable for the star tight end. Luke Willson will now step into the starting role and called the new of Graham’s injury “tough.” (Seattle Times)|
FFToday's Take: Patellar tendon injuries are serious and difficult for players to overcome and return to peak effectiveness. Victor Cruz suffered a similar injury last season. The loss of Graham may bump up the value of receiver Doug Baldwin more than any other player. Willson will be a TE2 in Graham's absence.
