Lions | Anquan Boldin finalizing deal with Detroit

Tue, 26 Jul 2016 10:56:31 -0700

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) is finalizing a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions, according to sources.

Fantasy Tip: Entering his age-36 season and 14th campaign in the league, Boldin is clearly past his prime, but he's certainly not an afterthought in PPR settings or deep standard leagues. The veteran would add another sneaky pass catcher for the Lions, which stands to slightly cut into the fantasy value of Golden Tate, Eric Ebron and Marvin Jones, but likely help Matthew Stafford. View Boldin as a late-round option with a better floor than ceiling for the 2016 season.

San Francisco 49ers WR DeAndre Smelter said he benefitted from sitting out and rehabbing his knee last year because he was able to observe and learn from WR Torrey Smith and WR Anquan Boldin.

Saints | New Orleans not pushing for Anquan Boldin

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 12:15:49 -0700

Updating a previous report, free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) received some interest from the New Orleans Saints earlier in the offseason, but the team never made him an offer and are not pushing to sign him at this point, according to a source.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin should be able to find a team at some point during training camp but probably will not be a major fantasy option in 2016. Owners in all leagues can avoid Boldin during their drafts.

Saints | Anquan Boldin of interest to Saints

Thu, 14 Jul 2016 13:08:37 -0700

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) has been pursued the strongest by the New Orleans Saints, according to a source. Boldin thinks highly of Saints wide receivers coach John Morton, who coached him with the San Francisco 49ers.

Fantasy Tip: The Saints could use a veteran presence at wide receiver with Marques Colston gone, and the connection with Morton makes this possible marriage even more sensible. Signing Boldin would likely decrease the fantasy value of Willie Snead, Coby Fleener, Michael Thomas and Brandon Coleman, although probably Thomas and Coleman the most. If this move does come to fruition, Bolding should be viewed as no more than a WR4 in PPR leagues.

Bengals | Cincy hasn't talked with Anquan Boldin

Sun, 10 Jul 2016 11:30:07 -0700

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) has not been contacted by the Cincinnati Bengals, according to director of player personnel Duke Tobin.

Fantasy Tip: Obviously, Boldin can continue to be avoided as long as he's unemployed. He is still one of the better free-agent wide receivers out there, though.

Lions | Jim Caldwell quiet about Anquan Boldin

Thu, 16 Jun 2016 18:18:02 -0700

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin's (49ers) visit with the Detroit Lions wasn't discussed by head coach Jim Caldwell, who declined to answer all questions related to Boldin Thursday, June 16.

Fantasy Tip: At best, Boldin would be the No. 3 receiver if he ended up with Detroit, limiting his value to deeper PPR formats.

Lions | Anquan Boldin visiting Lions

Mon, 13 Jun 2016 06:47:52 -0700

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) is visiting the Detroit Lions Monday, June 13.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin had a 69-789-4 season in 14 games last year, but he turns 36 in October. The Lions' offense could give him enough action to be a WR5 flyer in PPR leagues if he signs.

49ers | Anquan Boldin not contacted by 49ers

Wed, 18 May 2016 15:17:01 -0700

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) has not been contacted by San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly since early February.

Fantasy Tip: It's apparent that San Francisco is content with the wide receivers they have, with Torrey Smith and Quinton Patton being the most promising of the bunch. Boldin could still rejoin the 49ers before the season starts, but it seems unlikely at this point. Smith and Patton should be viewed as a speculative WR3 and WR5, respectively. As for Boldin, he would be worth a low-end WR3 to high-end WR4 if he comes back to the 49ers.

49ers | Anquan Boldin still an option for 49ers

Fri, 13 May 2016 15:01:33 -0700

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) is still an option for the San Francisco 49ers, but the team likes their younger receivers, according to general manager Trent Baalke.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin may have to wait until training camp before signing with a team. Boldin could return to the 49ers if the team wants a veteran in their receiver corps. Boldin probably can be a late-round pick in drafts no matter where he plays in 2016.

49ers | Anquan Boldin could return to 49ers

Sun, 24 Apr 2016 10:38:42 -0700

Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) could be sought back by the San Francisco 49ers if head coach Chip Kelly is unimpressed with the wide receivers' performances this week at minicamp.

Fantasy Tip: Right now, Torrey Smith is the No. 1 wide receiver in San Francisco, with Quinton Patton likely the No. 2 behind him. San Francisco is undoubtedly in need of depth at the position, though, and Boldin still has gas in the tank. If the wide receiver corps stays as is, then Smith is WR3 option while Patton provides sleeper potential.
