2016 Outlook
Depth Chart
While the fantasy world seems to have given up on Boldin, a closer look reveals that there wasn’t much, if any, drop off in his production between 2010 and 2011. In fact, you could argue he had a better season in 2011 with more yards (40) in two fewer games and just seven fewer receptions. His fantasy production suffered due to a drop in touchdowns from seven to three but that total should increase in 2012. Boldin will benefit from playing alongside a pair of speedsters in Torrey Smith and Jacoby Jones, which should open up the intermediate routes that are his specialty and allow him to line up more in the slot. At 32 years of age, Boldin’s days as a WR1 are clearly behind him but a bounce back season could be in the cards. Draft Boldin as a low-end WR3 or high-end WR4 and consider him a better option in PPR leagues.

News From The Past 90 Days
Injury Marvin Jones shows up on injury report     -- Thu Sep 29 7:50 pm --

Limited practice; hamstring injury
Marvin Jones is on Thursday’s injury report as a limited participant in practice after not being on the report at all after Wednesday’s practice. That suggests that Jones may have come down with the injury during practice and will make Friday’s practice one to watch for a better idea about how much the hamstring might affect him against the Chicago Bears on Sunday. (Pro Football Talk)

FF Today's Take: The WR1 after three weeks, Jones will need to get a full practice in on Friday in order to quell fears of him missing time against the Bears in Week 4. If he is forced to sit out, Anquan Boldin and Golden Tate become much better fantasy options against Chicago's shell of a defense, while Eric Ebron could also be nearing must-start territory as well.
Boldin expected to sign deal with Lions     -- Tue Jul 26 2:05 pm --

One-year deal expected to be finalized today
The Detroit Lions are planning to sign veteran wide receiver Anquan Boldin to a one-year deal, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Boldin and the Lions, who need depth at receiver in the wake of Calvin Johnson's retirement, were finalizing the deal Tuesday, sources told Schefter. (ESPN)

FF Today's Take: Boldin will be thrown into the mix with Golden Tate, Marvin Jones, Eric Ebron, T.J. Jones and receiving specialist Theo Riddick. Boldin has experience with Jim Caldwell from their days in Baltimore. He's likely more of a depth piece than a major contributor but he's still very capable of having a fantasy impact at age 35. He's shaping up to be a mid-to-late round draft pick with WR4/5 value.
Saints making push to sign Anquan Boldin     -- Thu Jul 14 10:30 pm --

Free-agent WR a big fan of current position coach Johnnie Morton
The Saints are the favorites to sign Anquan Boldin and are making the strongest push, per a source informed of the situation. Rapoport added that Boldin loves Saints receivers coach John Morton -- the duo spent two seasons together in San Francisco. Boldin's big body and strong hands make him a viable receiving target even as Father Time gains an advantage. He would add a big red zone target, which the Saints could use. If signed, he might take some pressure off of rookie Michael Thomas. (

FF Today's Take: While Thomas owners may disagree, New Orleans can't hurt itself by inking a respected veteran presence like Boldin, who led the Niners last season with 69 catches - more than twice as many as second-place Torrey Smith's 33 - and 789 yards. Boldin would probably make Thomas a non-factor in fantasy in 2016 and would be a reasonable bet for WR4 production, likely stealing a bit of Willie Snead's fantasy value as well.
