Fantasy analysis: Baldwin has all the physical tools, except for elite speed, an NFL team could want in a receiver. He also brings some serious baggage. The 6-foot-5, 230-pound wideout has some room to grow personally as well as professionally. Head coach Todd Haley was successful in getting the most from Dwayne Bowe, who went from the coach's doghouse to the league penthouse in one year after buying into his leader's program. Perhaps Haley will have similar success here.
If so, Baldwin may help to turn the Chiefs into one of the most dynamic offenses in the league. After some down moments, Matt Cassel has proven that he can be the conductor for his offense's engineer, and the running game is explosive. The concerns lie mostly with Baldwin.
The rookie's fantasy prospects may appear dim in 2011. He'll probably require more one-on-one guidance than other youngsters would, and if he displays a negative attitude, he'll quickly find himself at the bottom of the pecking order. If Baldwin sticks to the program, though - however likely it is - he could be a fantasy producer, albeit an inconsistent one. Haley's offense can be complex, but the offensive whiz has also demonstrated that he'll find ways to incorporate his most dangerous players, at least in situational instances.
