Chiefs | Jon Baldwin tries to speed up
Wed, 31 Jul 2013 19:49:24 -0700
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."
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.
