Seahawks beat writer Bob Condotta (of the Seattle Times) was asked to predict the pecking order at receiver:
If you go with just two receivers, then I’d still go with Doug Baldwin and Jermaine Kearse being the two starters for the opening game. They are the two most experienced and proven receivers on the team and also excel at a really underrated aspect of the game that is hugely important to the coaches — blocking. That’s one reason you rarely saw those two come off the field last season. Teams obviously often run three-receiver sets. And if what we saw in OTAs and mini-caps is any indication, then the starting 3-WR sets would well include Baldwin, Kearse and Chris Matthews. Tyler Lockett projects as Baldwin’s backup, with the other spots sort of a jumble at the moment. But as of now, I’d go with Kevin Norwood and Ricardo Lockette as the other backups. As you note, Paul Richardson could well being the year on the PUP list. If he’s healthy by opening day, I’d put him on the second unit. As for the Kearse and Matthews, there’s no question that what Matthews did in the Super Bowl creates a lot of excitement going forward. But Kearse is one of the team’s most versatile receivers and as noted, also excels at blocking. For now, I think he holds on to a role as being more of an every down receiver.
Matthews is a deep sleeper this year despite a great performance in the Super Bowl. Baldwin should be usable in fantasy leagues, but with the addition of TE Jimmy Graham, there will be fewer targets available to the Seattle receivers.

Week 20: Baldwin vs Packers
Doug Baldwin had his usual numbers (3 catches, 4 targets), but he did manage to get into the end zone last week against Carolina. That's where most of the fantasy value is for any of the Seahawks wide receivers. Baldwin is still the No. 1 target in the passing game but that doesn't guarantee anything in Seattle's offense.
For Championship weekend, there is at least one receiver on the other four teams ranked higher than Baldwin although he still had the best chance to produce from the Seahawks roster in the passing game. The Packers are 24th in aFPA to wide receivers so the matchup favors Baldwin, too. He is worth a look this week as a middle-of-the-pack fantasy wide receiver for Week 20.
