Could be a great time to pick him up off waivers and claim low. A lot of people just straight up dropped him. He's got some great match-ups coming up! It's funny how one play just changes everything? I heard he missed a 33 yard TD at the end. Now I didn't see the play and maybe it was an offensive Pass interference. But imagine had he made that play clean everyone would have held on to him as that would have gave him 10 fantasy points.

ST. JOSEPH -- The Chiefs’ first-round draft pick from 2011 wanted to establish something right away at the start training camp.
His first name is not Jonathan, as listed in rosters and other published materials. And it’s not John. It’s Jon.
“J-O-N,” emphasized wide receiver Jon Baldwin.
Baldwin has a chance to establish more than just a name for himself in camp and in his second season. This could be a breakthrough year for Baldwin, a physically gifted 6-foot-4, 230-pounder to establish himself as an elite receiver in the NFL.
The absence of veteran Dwayne Bowe, who has yet to sign his $9.5 million tender as the club’s franchise player, has thrust Baldwin into the role of the club’s No. 1 receiver. And even after Bowe eventually signs and reports to camp, big things will be expected of Baldwin, who was just an afterthought in the offense during an injury-marred rookie season last year.
“He feels like he might be the guy, and without Bowe being here, he sees that opportunity,” head coach Romeo Crennel said. “When we drafted him, we felt good about his talent, about his size, about him going to get the football the way he goes to get it.
