Cardinal in the Pros: Add Doug Baldwin To Your Fantasy Rosters

Don't sleep on Doug Baldwin.

Here's a quick look at how some of Stanford's former players fared in Week 5:

Oshiomogho Atogwe, FS, Washington

Bye. Atogwe and the Redskins have a chance to increase their surprising NFC East division lead when they host Philadelphia on Sunday. One more win and I'll officially jump off the Suck for Luck train with this team.

Doug Baldwin, WR, Seattle

Coming off a five-catch, 84-yard performance against Atlanta, I picked up Baldwin off the waiver wire in my fantasy league and inserted him in the starting lineup in place of Mario Manningham. As bad as Manningham has been this season, this still felt like a homer move. It also turned out to be the right one, as Baldwin finished with eight catches for 136 yards and a TD.

In an article about the NFL's looming trade deadline, NFL.com's Gil Brandt says Pete Carroll and the Seahawks should try to acquire Carson Palmer from the Bengals. In exchange, Brandt suggests the Seahawks send Baldwin to Cincinnati, where he would form a solid receiving duo with first-round draft pick AJ Green (and be reunited with former Stanford teammate Ryan Whalen).

Sione Fua, DT, Carolina

Fua had a career high four tackles in the Panthers' 30-27 loss to the Saints.

Toby Gerhart, RB, Minnesota

Gerhart had two carries for 9 yards in Minnesota's 34-10 win against Arizona.

Owen Marecic, FB, Cleveland

Bye

Evan Moore, TE, Cleveland

Bye

Alex Smith, TE, Cleveland

Bye

Richard Sherman, CB, Seattle

Sherman had three tackles in Seattle's 36-25 win over the Giants.

Leigh Torrence, CB, New Orleans

Torrence didn't record a tackle in the Saints' win against Carolina.
