|After finishing 72nd among wide receivers in 2014, itís hard to get excited about third-year receiver Jermaine Kearse who started all but two games alongside Baldwin this past season. Kearse finished the year with just 38 receptions for 537 yards Ė both career highs Ė but just one touchdown. Despite him being penciled in as the teamís No. 2 option at wide receiver, Kearse might be fourth player drafted in the group. Through three full seasons, including playoffs, Kearse has only had more than three receptions in a game on three occasions and he has never broken 100 receiving yards in a regular season game. The upside isnít there with Kearse and given the lack of opportunities to go around in the Seattle passing game, it would be wise for fantasy owners to hold off on selecting Kearse in drafts.

FFToday's Take: Baldwin has missed practice Wednesday and Thursday, meaning the injury should be of some concern to his owners. The hottest receiver in fantasy football at the moment has 10 touchdown catches in his last four games, so his absence would have a huge effect on any owner counting on Russell Wilson as well. In such an event, rookie Tyler Lockett would likely become Wilson's top target while Jermaine Kearse could be a serviceable WR3 option.
