Anquan Boldin caught 4-of-6 targets for 40 yards in the Lions' Week 13 win over the Saints.
He also drew a pass interference penalty. Boldin nearly had a 13-yard score in the second quarter, but got tripped up at the one-yard line. His stat line was somewhat disappointing on an afternoon where Marvin Jones (thigh) was inactive. T.J. Jones and Andre Roberts were both receiving targets. Boldin will be a low upside WR4 against the Bears in Week 14. Dec 4 - 5:45 PM

Anquan Boldin caught 7-of-9 targets for 69 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' Week 12 win over the Vikings.

Daily fantasy players got what they were looking for on the game's opening drive. With Matthew Stafford scrambling around to buy time, Boldin got wide open for a two-yard touchdown in the end zone. Boldin is an important real-life player for the conservative Lions, but it's not translating to much fantasy value. He'll be in the 50-60 range for next week's game against the Saints.
Nov 24 - 4:03 PM

Anquan Boldin caught 6-of-9 targets for 37 yards Week 11 against the Jaguars.

Stafford was in check-down mode most of the game, with Theo Riddick and Boldin dominating targets. Boldin predictably did little with his work, but he did manage to convert a couple third downs. An important player for the Lions, Boldin is not worth owning in anything but the deepest PPR formats.
Nov 20 - 5:51 PM

Anquan Boldin caught 2-of-4 targets for 10 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' Week 9 win over the Vikings.

Boldin's target volume has gone in the gutter with Theo Riddick and Eric Ebron back healthy, but Boldin has compensated in some spots on sheer touchdown scoring. He has a low floor and a low ceiling on a weekly basis, however, with zero games of 60 yards through nine weeks. Boldin is barely worth rostering in deep leagues, especially with the Lions now going on a Week 10 bye.
Nov 6 - 4:40 PM

ESPN Lions reporter Michael Rothstein expects Anquan Boldin's numbers to take a "pretty big hit" with Eric Ebron and Theo Riddick back healthy.

Ebron and Riddick returned last week against the Texans and combined to see 21 targets, finishing 1-2 in catches and yards against Houston. Boldin was still in on 49-of-61 snaps, but saw just three looks, catching one ball for four yards. He averaged 5.33 targets per game in the three Ebron missed. With the tight end back to occupy the middle of the field, Boldin is more of a WR5.
Nov 2 - 10:16 AM

Anquan Boldin caught 1-of-3 targets for four yards in the Lions' Week 8 loss to the Texans.

Eric Ebron's (ankle, knee) return paired with Theo Riddick's put Boldin back on mothballs. Ebron and Riddick dominated the targets, combining for 21 of them and finish 1-2 in receiving for the Lions. Boldin is nothing more than a WR5/6 when all of the other Lions' skill players are healthy and active.
Oct 30 - 5:37 PM

Anquan Boldin caught 3-of-4 targets for 28 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' Week 7 win over the Redskins.

Boldin's score was a game-winning 18-yarder in traffic. Boldin secured the ball near the goal line and bullied his way backward. He's up to four touchdowns on the season, but has only 32 catches for 272 yards. You need to do better for your WR3.
Oct 23 - 5:22 PM

Anquan Boldin caught 8-of-9 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown Week 6 against the Rams.

This was Boldin's first game with more than 50 yards, but it was his third with a touchdown. He is now averaging less than 8.5 yards per catch this season. Boldin is an important part of the Lions' offense, but he will bring little to the fantasy table when he does not score a touchdown.
Oct 16 - 6:52 PM

Anquan Boldin (ankle) is questionable for Week 6 against the Rams.

Boldin was a full participant at Friday's practice after being limited on Thursday and not practicing at all on Wednesday. He should be fine for Week 6. Boldin has logged 21 catches for 184 yards and two touchdowns this year while spending most of his time in the slot.
Oct 14 - 4:23 PM

Anquan Boldin (ankle) returned to Lions practice Thursday, getting in a limited session.

Boldin will be fine for Sunday's game against the Rams. Boldin has proven to be a low-end WR5 in the Motor City.
Oct 13 - 4:04 PM

Anquan Boldin (ankle) didn't practice Wednesday.

It's likely a maintenance day after Boldin played the entire game last week. His status will be updated Thursday.
Oct 12 - 4:40 PM

Anquan Boldin caught 4-of-4 targets for 48 yards in the Lions' Week 5 win over the Eagles.

His 48 yards led the Lions on a day Matthew Stafford threw for just 180 yards. Boldin will benefit for as long as Eric Ebron (ankle, knee) is out, and it's reported he'll miss a couple weeks. Boldin will be a WR4/5 next week against the Rams.
Oct 9 - 5:27 PM

Anquan Boldin caught 6-of-8 targets for 31 yards in the Lions' Week 4 loss to the Bears.

Boldin entered Week 4 with the lowest aDOT (Average Depth of Target) in the league, and that didn't change Sunday. Most of his looks are coming around the line of scrimmage. Touchdowns are keeping Boldin in the fantasy conversation, with two through four games. He also had one taken off the board in Week 2. Boldin will be nothing more than a WR5 next week against Philly.
Oct 2 - 5:15 PM

Anquan Boldin caught 4-of-6 targets for 22 yards and a touchdown Week 3 against the Packers.

Boldin was quiet most of the day, but he did get loose in the flat for a two-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Boldin now has two touchdowns in as many weeks, but he has yet to surpass 50 yards. He is a low-upside PPR option at best.
Sep 25 - 5:12 PM

Anquan Boldin caught 4-of-7 targets for 48 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' Week 2 loss to the Titans.

He had a second touchdown negated by a penalty. The Lions are making it a point to spread the ball around in the passing game this season, and Boldin is a staple in their 11-personnel three-receiver sets, which means he's going to be on the field a ton. He's on the WR4/5 fringe entering Week 3 at Green Bay.
