Player Outlook

Anquan Boldin is looking for a new team this offseason after the 49ers let him out of his contract, and the 35-year-old could still be helpful to Fantasy owners this year in the right situation. Boldin had a down year in 2015 with 69 catches for 789 yards and four touchdowns, but he struggled with the combination of Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert. In the two years prior to that, Boldin averaged 84 catches, 1,121 yards and six touchdowns, and he could still be a No. 3 or 4 Fantasy option with the right team. Keep an eye on where Boldin ends up, and he could be useful in all leagues with a late-round pick.

  • Lions' Anquan Boldin: Inks contract with Lions
    By RotoWire Staff

    The Lions and Boldin agreed to a contract Tuesday, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports. At this stage of his career, the 35-year-old Boldin won't completely make up for the retirement of Calvin Johnson. In reality, the combined efforts of Boldin and fellow offseason pickup Marvin Jones will help plug the dam, with the 13-year veteran the likely candidate to become a quick favorite of Matthew Stafford. Despite posting the second-lowest YPC of his career (11.4) last season, Boldin was working with uninspiring signal callers -- Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick (shoulder/knee/thumb) -- so the upgrade to Stafford should boost Boldin's prospects.

  • Anquan Boldin: Visiting with Redskins
    By RotoWire Staff

    Boldin is visiting the Redskins on Tuesday, Mike Jones of the Washington Post reports. There hasn't been much news regarding the 35-year-old Boldin, who did most of his damage out of the slot last season. Washington doesn't seem like a good fit, given that Jamison Crowder had an effective rookie season while working almost exclusively from the slot. Boldin does have plenty of experience playing on the outside, but Washington also has DeSean Jackson and Pierre Garcon on the roster. Shaky as the fit may seem, Boldin doesn't seem to be drawing much interest and may have to settle for a sub-optimal situation.

  • Anquan Boldin: Hasn't talked with 49ers
    By RotoWire Staff

    49ers general manager Trent Baalke said the team has not talked with Boldin this offseason, CSN Bay Area reports. "I wouldn't say that door has been shut by any stretch," Baalke said. "But where it is, it's where it was when we left off (the season). He's going to explore his options, and we're going to explore ours. We got a draft to go through. It would be later than sooner, in terms of the final decision that's made." A return to San Francisco doesn't seem like a great fit at first glance, as the 35-year-old Boldin presumably wants to play for a contender and the 49ers likely prefer to invest resources in younger players. On the other hand, the Niners will want their quarterback (whoever that may be) to have a reasonable shot at success, and it would be tough to do much of anything with the receiving talent on the current roster. Boldin, an unrestricted free agent, could thus end up back in San Francisco if he's unable to find a contract to his liking elsewhere.

  • Boldin caught five of eight targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 19-16 overtime win against the Rams. Boldin showed decent chemistry with QB Blaine Gabbert, as the pair hooked up at least five times in all but one of the six games in which they both played. Even Boldin's 33-yard touchdown came on a play in which he really wasn't open, but Gabbert put it on his back shoulder. Still, the veteran wideout doesn't seem to have a whole lot left in the tank at 35-years-old, averaging 11.4 YPC, which was one of the worst marks of his career. He also finished with the second fewest receiving yards (789) of his career. With that said, it's not like the 49ers have an elite passing attack and speed has never been part of his game anyway, so his mediocre 2015 season doesn't necessarily mean it's the end of the line just yet. He'll be a free agent in the offseason, so it will be interesting to see what kind of market there is for the tough possession receiver.

  • Boldin snagged all five passes that came his way in Sunday's loss to Detroit, totaling 27 yards. In Boldin's six games playing with Blaine Gabbert, he has caught at least five passes in five of them, as compared to three such games in his first seven games of the season. The veteran receiver has yet to top 100 yards with Gabbert under center, however, and has scored just once. With Gabbert obviously comfortable looking Boldin's way and limited other options available in the 49ers' offense, Boldin is a solid start in PPR leagues, but may disappoint in standard formats.
