It's been a tough start to the season for Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks, but things could be taking a turn for the better now that Wilson's favorite target will be back on the field Sunday.


After missing the last two games with a knee injury, stud wideout Doug Baldwin will make his return to the starting lineup against the Arizona Cardinals, according to Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll.

Baldwin's return to the field will be a much-needed boost to Seattle's lackluster receiving corps, but going toe to toe with Arizona's Patrick Peterson isn't exactly the best matchup for his first game back. That being said, there's a distinct possibility that Baldwin spends most of Sunday afternoon in Peterson's hip pocket. However, he's still worth starting across all formats as a WR1/2.

In recent seasons, the eighth-year wideout has become Wilson's security blanket and go-to target whenever his protection breaks down. As long as his quarterback keeps looking his way, Baldwin will have ample opportunities to produce on Sunday.
