Lions | Anquan Boldin finds the end zone

Sun, 18 Sep 2016 14:51:59 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin scored his first touchdown as a Lion in Week 2. He caught four passes for 48 yards in total against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, Sept. 18. Boldin had a second touchdown nullified by an offensive holding call against OG Laken Tomlinson.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin found soft spots in the coverage and had a vintage showing. He remains barely playable for fantasy owners until more consistency in the passing game can be displayed. Boldin will be a waiver wire target for many owners, and he's worth stashing if you have an opening.

Lions | Anquan Boldin to have big role

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 09:41:43 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin will be a big part of the offense this season, according to offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin has been a solid receiver over the past few seasons and should receive a decent amount of targets this season since Calvin Johnson is no longer part of the Lions. Boldin probably can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option most weeks.

Lions | Anquan Boldin the No. 3 receiver

Fri, 12 Aug 2016 18:21:19 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin has been impressive during training camp, and there is "no doubt" he will be the No. 3 receiver to open the season, according to beat writer Kyle Meinke.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin is a physical receiver, and he can still move the chains with the best of them. He should be a useful WR4 in PPR formats.

Lions | Anquan Boldin expects to work in slot

Wed, 03 Aug 2016 21:23:57 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin has been a steady target for QB Matthew Stafford throughout training camp, according to beat writer Tim Twentyman. He is expected to step into the slot and add toughness, experience and production to the position group.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin posted 69 receptions, 789 yards and four touchdowns last season in San Francisco despite a shaky quarterback situation. He is playing with a much better quarterback and similar production can be expected despite the fact he is 35 years old. Consider him a solid WR4 or flex option in most fantasy formats.

Lions | Anquan Boldin working out of the slot

Fri, 29 Jul 2016 14:24:18 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin spent a lot of time with the first-team offense with most of his repetitions as the slot receiver Friday, July 29.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin has limited fantasy upside, but he's a potential target at the end of drafts with more value in PPR settings. His fantasy floor could also come in handy during bye weeks. Just remember, though, this is his 14th season in the league and a long way past his prime.

Lions | Anquan Boldin contract update

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 11:54:55 -0700

Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin signed a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions worth $2.75 million. The deal includes a $750,000 signing bonus.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin should have a solid role in the passing game this season and can be a late-round option in most fantasy leagues.

Lions | Anquan Boldin to move around

Thu, 28 Jul 2016 10:19:41 -0700

Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin will initially see playing time as an outside receiver as well as a slot receiver, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Fantasy Tip: Boldin should have a decent role in the passing game for the Lions this season but will not be the focal point like he has been in the past. Owners in most leagues should consider Boldin as a late-round option in their drafts.

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.

49ers | DeAndre Smelter better after sitting out

Fri, 15 Jul 2016 21:21:52 -0700

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.
