Chiefs | Jon Baldwin tries to speed up

Kansas City Chiefs WR Jonathan Baldwin shed weight during the offseason in an attempt to fit in better with head coach Andy Reid's up-tempo West Coast offense. "In this offense, you're getting a lot of reps," Baldwin said. "It's a way faster pace than it has been in the past, so you have to be in tip-top shape to do all the things and get all the reps you're going to be getting in training camp."

Fantasy Tip: Baldwin is reportedly eight to 10 pounds lighter, and in great shape. That's the good news. The bad news is that he hasn't really stood out yet as a complement to Dwayne Bowe, Jamaal Charles and the rest of the Kansas City offense. It's his third-year, and he really needs to take a big leap forward. For fantasy purposes, he is a low-end WR3, solid WR4 or flex play at best.
