Doug Baldwin was a revelation last year and is currently an enigma this year.
He has struggled with as assortment of ailments ever since training camp.
When he's healthy, he's looked like the guy we all fell in love with last season, but those moments have been few and far between through the season's first half.
While I was unsure that Baldwin would become a Pro Bowl-caliber receiver this year, I'd be lying if I said I didn't hope he could at least duplicate his performance from his rookie season.
Baldwin, as far as I could tell, was supposed to be the 'Hawks equivalent of Wes Welker, helping make plays underneath in the slot to help keep the chains moving on offense. Instead the 'Hawks continue to rely heavily on Marshawn Lynch, pray that Sidney Rice stays healthy and hope that Golden Tate or tight end Zach Miller emerges within the passing game to help Russell Wilson.
Understand that I'm not pinning all of the 'Hawks problems at wide receiver on Baldwin, nor do I consider him the team's worst player
Before the start of the season he represented one of only a handful of offensive players that we didn't need to worry about.
But what can be said of his performance this season?
Part of me wants to believe that the offense could open up a bit if Baldwin were fully healthy.
Part of me also wonders if what we saw last year was the high point of Baldwin's career.
The truth likely lies somewhere in between, at least for this season.
Both the 'Hawks and Baldwin need each other, yet whether they get together remains to be seen.
Making matters all the more complex is if Baldwin is really hurt, rushing him back to action probably won't help. At the same time, do the 'Hawks have enough time and options available to make things work?
If you'd told me that Baldwin would top this list a few months ago, I'd figure the season was already a lost cause, but there still is time.
Let's just hope Baldwin and everyone else on this list can figure out how to make the most of a season that currently remains up for grabs.
