Fantasy Football Outlook: It’s time to pay attention to Jonathan Baldwin as a late round sleeper. Baldwin is having a terrific camp and his reps in the first-team offense, will pay dividends in establishing confidence and chemistry with this quarterback.

The Chiefs took Baldwin for a reason and with Bowe likely gone after this year, Baldwin is the receiver they view as a possible WR1 on the team, and he will earn an expanded role if he continues to play well.

Summer of 2012: Fantasy Projections

Jonathan Baldwin clearly struggled as a rookie, but I was pleased to hear fellow teammate Steve Breaston compliment him this off-season saying he’s, “learned a lot.”

What I love about the NFL is no matter how talented you are, if you’re not dedicated to your craft, you won’t be successful in the long run. This league is just too good and talents like Baldwin can get away with sloppy play and pointing fingers in college, but at this level it doesn’t fly.

Baldwin has the talent to be a solid WR2 at some point in his career for fantasy owners, but expect Dwayne Bowe to sign his franchise tender and Baldwin to remain as the No.3 receiver, pushing Breaston for a starting role.

Unless you’re in deep leagues, or holding him in a dynasty league, Baldwin is best left on the waiver wire until he can earn a starting job. Expect the game scripts to tilt towards the running game, as Matt Cassel can’t function well if he’s asked to play in a pass heavy, spread offense.

Summer of 2011: Fantasy Projections

I almost had fell on the floor in shock that Coach Todd Haley of all people would actually draft Jonathan Baldwin after his questionable behavior in college. Haley has been one of the more no nonsense coaches in the league, the past two seasons, but I can’t argue with the Chiefs loving Baldwin’s tools (6’4, 228 with great leaping ability) and what he could do opposite Dwayne Bowe.

Early last season some fantasy owners may have given up on Bowe because the Chiefs were so conservative on offense that he talent receiver was appearing to look like a bust for the second year in a row. As it turned out, the Chiefs dominant running game opened up more down the field, and Bowe put together one of the more impressive seven game runs I’ve seen in my 20 years of playing fantasy football.

Now, the Chiefs are looking to continue their aggressive ways and with the addition of Baldwin, quarterback Matt Cassel is going to have two very talented pass catchers to work with. Only time will tell if Baldwin is up for the challenge to make an impact, but he’s clearly a top five receiver to take in dynasty rookie drafts. If Baldwin shows signs of winning a starting job this summer, he’s worth a late round pick in at least 12 team standard redraft leagues.

8/2011 Update – With the addition of Steve Breaston, it looks like Jonathan Baldwin could lose a starting job opportunity to begin the season. This makes sense as the Chiefs missed out on development time with Baldwin in the spring, but if he proves ready, the Chiefs should eventually start Baldwin opposite Bowe and move Breaston in as the No.3 target.
