Getting his first chance to see some real action on the field, Baldwin caught a key touchdown pass that helped the Chiefs beat the Chargers 23-20 on Oct. 31. He ended up becoming the leading receiver for the team, catching five passes for 82 yards and that touchdown. Dwayne Bowe(notes) had four catches for 62 yards, and Dexter McCluster(notes) had three catches for 28 yards. It was good enough to lead the Chiefs to the win, and quarterback Matt Cassel(notes) pushed the team to a 4-3 record and a tie for first place in the AFC West.
The Cassel to Baldwin connection could increase this week against the Miami Dolphins, and it presents a brand new option for fantasy football owners that need a new wide receivers. There are four teams with byes this week that could affect leagues, and the teams with the week off are the Detroit Lions, Minnesota Vikings, Carolina Panthers, and Jacksonville Jaguars. There are a few receivers in that group of teams that will need to get replaced for a week, and Baldwin is a great guy to pick up.
