Description: 49ers wideout Anquan Boldin had a team-high seven receptions for 61 yards in Week 16's loss to San Diego.
Insight: Boldin should reach 1,000 yards, as he has 81 catches for 981 yards and four scores on the season.
 
Cold12/15/2014 10:07:00 AM
Description: 49ers wideout Anquan Boldin caught two of four targets for just 23 yards.
Insight: Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been a disaster to fantasy owners in the second half of the season and has taken down his receivers with him.
 
Cold12/8/2014 10:49:00 AM
Description: 49ers wideout Anquan Boldin caught four of nine targets for just 54 yards.
Insight: Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been a mystery to fantasy owners. He's not throwing the ball well and his No. 1 receiver's numbers over the last two weeks are an indication of how bad this team has fallen. Boldin has seven catches for 72 yards over the last two contests.
 
11/28/2014 9:19:00 AM
Description: 49ers wideout Anquan Boldin caught three of five targets for just 18 yards.
Insight: He had given fantasy owners double-digit points in three of the past four games, but like his quarterback Colin Kaepernick, he couldn't do anything against the Seahawks defense. Chalk it up as a rare bad performance and move on.
 
Hot11/24/2014 11:37:00 AM
Description: 49ers wideout Anquan Boldin broke out with nine receptions for 137 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: In case you haven't been paying attention, Boldin, not Michael Crabtree or vernon davis is Colin Kaepernick's favorite target. He's now scored in three of the past four games.
 
11/16/2014 6:56:00 PM
Description: 49ers wideout Anquan Boldin had five catches for 53 yards versus the Giants.
Insight: Boldin caught all but one of his targets. Boldin is the most reliable fantasy option in the San Francisco receiving core, but Michael Crabtree has the biggest upside, hence Crabtree's 48-yard touchdown.
 
11/9/2014 6:23:00 PM
Description: 49ers wideout Anquan Boldin caught a team-high six passes in Week 10.
Insight: Boldin also led the team with 95 receiving yards, and scored a touchdown as well. He is more of a WR3.
 
11/2/2014 7:43:00 PM
Description: 49ers wideout Anquan Boldin caught six passes for 93 yards and a touchdown versus the Rams.
Insight: Boldin remains Colin Kaepernick's favorite target. He was second to Michael Crabtree in targets, but reeled in more of the balls thrown his way.
 
10/20/2014 10:27:00 AM
Description: San Francisco wideout Anquan Boldin caught seven of 10 targets for 50 yards, butdropped a sure touchdown.
Insight: When the 49ers need a big first-down catch they almost always look to wide receiver Anquan Boldin and he usually comes through, but with four quality receivers on this team, none is likely to break out and become an every game fantasy option.
 
10/14/2014 12:16:00 AM
Description: When the 49ers need a big first-down catch they almost always look to wide receiver Anquan Boldin.
Insight: Monday night was no different and he caught seven of nine targets for 94 yards and a touchdown. It was his best night of the season as it was for his quarterback.
 
9/16/2014 12:22:00 PM
Description: San Francisco wide receiver Anquan Boldin leads the team in targets with 15, catching 10 of them, for 133 yards over the first two games.
Insight: Boldin was sensational last season, hauling in a team-high 85 catches for 1,179 yards, but he isn't likely going to get close to those numbers in 2014 with a healthy Michael Crabtree as the No. 1 receiver. He'd be a great handcuff for Crabtree, should the injury-prone wideout go down.

Insight: Boldin was sensational last season, hauling in a team-high 85 catches for 1,179 yards. Fantasy owners shouldn't be worried about Boldin's age (33) but it's worth noting that most of Boldin's numbers in 2013 came with Michael Crabtree (torn Achilles) out of the lineup. Crabtree being back at 100 percent could spell trouble for Boldin in 2014.
 
1/12/2014 4:38:00 PM
Description: Niners wideout Anquan Boldin came to play Sunday against Carolina.
Insight: The veteran led all receivers with 136 yards on eight catches. Boldin didn't score in the game as Captain Munnerlyn pulled him down at the two after breaking off a 45-yard gain in the third quarter. Going back to last season, Boldin has caught 30 passes for 516 yards in his last five playoff games. His teams (he played for the Ravens in 2012) have won all five games.
 
9/8/2013 7:52:00 PM
Description: Anquan Boldin made his 49ers debut a memorable one with 13 receptions for 208 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Wow. Boldin slipped right into Michael Crabtree's spot as the team's No. 1 receiver and looked as though he had played with Colin Kaepernick for years. Fantasy owners who drafted Boldin to be a WR3 have to be salivating.
 
7/16/2013 6:01:00 PM
Description: According to SacBee.com, 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin looked as if he'd been playing with QB Colin Kaepernick for 10 years rather than a few weeks this spring.
Insight: With Michael Crabtree out for most or all of the 2013 season with a complete tear of his right Achilles' tendon, Boldin, along with tight end Vernon Davis, will see plenty of targets from Kaepernick. Crabtree saw 10.4 targets per game during Kaepernick's nine starts (including playoffs) last season.
 
5/28/2013 8:20:00 PM
Description: San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh said Tuesday that receiver Anquan Boldin has "picked up the system fast," according to SacBee.com.
Insight: Boldin caught several passes from Colin Kaepernick during practice Tuesday and was the top target for the team's other three quarterbacks. With Michael Crabtree possibly out for the season due to an Achilles' tendon tear, Boldin will be the No. 1 receiver. Crabtree saw 9.4 targets per week and compiled 41 catches, 595 yards and five touchdowns in seven games after Kaepernick became the starter last season.
 
3/11/2013 6:37:00 PM
Description: The Ravens swapped wide receiver Anquan Boldin for the 49ers' sixth-round draft pick on Monday.
Insight: It's a sad end to what was mostly a successful tenure for Boldin in Baltimore. Boldin wasn't willing to take a pay cut and apparently that was enough to send him packing. Expect Boldin and Colin Kaepernick to hook up on plenty of touchdown passes in San Francisco next season.
 
3/10/2013 10:15:00 PM
Description: The Baltimore Sun reports that Ravens wideout Anquan Boldin has refused to take a pay cut.
Insight: The Ravens tried to reduce Boldin's annual salary from $6 million to $4 million but the 32-year-old wouldn't allow it. Baltimore could opt to cut Boldin if the two sides can't work out a compromise within the next couple of days.
 
2/8/2013 8:41:00 PM
Description: According to NBC's Erik Kuselias, wideout Anquan Boldin will announce his retirement if the Ravens cut him during the offseason.
Insight: Boldin has decided that Baltimore is where he'll finish his NFL career. Boldin was spectacular in the playoffs (22 receptions, 380 yards, four TD) and at age 32, he still has plenty left in the tank. We're guessing the Ravens will come to their senses and hold on to Boldin, though he may have to take a paycut.
 
1/31/2013 8:48:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Adam Schefter suggested that the Ravens might cut wide receiver Anquan Boldin after the season.
Insight: Boldin has carried the Ravens in the postseason (276 yards and three TD) and even at age 32, he's still one of the most physically gifted receivers in the NFL. But this isn't about Boldin's ability: this is about money. The Ravens have made it clear that re-signing Joe Flacco will be their top priority this offseason. That means Boldin will have to take a significant pay cut if he wants to return to Baltimore in 2013.
