Anquan Boldin caught 3-of-7 targets for 12 yards in San Francisco's Week 4 loss to the Packers.
Boldin was visibly frustrated for much of the afternoon, left in disbelief by the ineffectiveness of San Francisco's passing attack. Boldin got loose for a potential deep touchdown in the second half, but Colin Kaepernick under-threw him into a sea of three Packer defenders. With 25 percent of the year now gone, Boldin is on pace for just 60/496/4. We'd expect his name to come up in trade deadline speculation. Oct 4 - 8:19 PM

Anquan Boldin secured 2-of-4 targets for 16 yards in the 49ers' Week 3 loss to the Cardinals.

Even with Torrey Smith removed from the 49ers' offense by Patrick Peterson, Boldin was unable to capitalize. Boldin has had a highly inefficient start to the 2015 season, always a concern for aging wideouts. Boldin turns 35 next month. He's best viewed as a shaky WR3 play entering Week 4 against the Packers.

Anquan Boldin secured 6-of-10 targets for 60 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' Week 2 loss to Pittsburgh.

Boldin got lucky that a first-quarter pass intended for him was ruled incomplete rather than a lost fumble. It was a bang-bang play that could've gone either way. In the third quarter, Boldin got open for a big gain deep in scoring position but Boldin dropped it. In fourth-quarter garbage time with San Francisco trailing 29-3, Boldin did catch a 14-yard touchdown pass from Colin Kaepernick. Boldin will be a fringe WR3/4 when San Francisco heads to Arizona in Week 3.
Sep 20 - 4:36 PM

Anquan Boldin logged four catches on five targets for 36 yards in the 49ers’ Week 1 win over the Vikings.

The five targets were Boldin’s fewest since Week 15 of last season. Carlos Hyde was on such a roll Monday it left San Francisco’s receiving corps with almost nothing to do. We’re guessing the veteran will have a bigger role in next week’s tilt with Pittsburgh.

Anquan Boldin did not catch his lone target in the 49ers' third preseason game.

The entire 49ers' offense was stuck in neutral in the first half, so Boldin did not get many chances to run routes much less catch passes. Perennially undervalued in fantasy circles, Boldin is a solid WR3 in PPR formats. Boldin has one catch for 14 yards this preseason.

Anquan Boldin says the 49ers plan to run a faster-tempo offense under new OC Geep Chryst.

The 49ers played "slow" under outgoing OC Greg Roman, annually ranking among the NFL's bottom teams in offensive plays. "It’s definitely a fast tempo," said Boldin of Chryst's offense. "We’re trying to get a lot faster than last year as far as getting to the line." Boldin said the "system" has not changed, but the 49ers want to run more plays. This would be good news for the fantasy values of all San Francisco skill players. Boldin, in particular, is a great value at his current mid-11th-round ADP. He's been a top-30 fantasy receiver in each of the last three seasons.
Jun 25 - 1:11 AM

Anquan Boldin secured 2-of-9 targets for 81 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' Week 17 win over Arizona.

Boldin capped his age-34 season with a bang, scoring a 76-yard touchdown in the first quarter. He had another TD wiped away by an illegal chop block back at the line. Boldin is owed $6 million in 2015 salary and bonuses, but we suspect he'll be back. Still playing at a high level, Boldin ended 2014 with 83 catches for 1,062 yards and five scores. He isn't a true "No. 1" anymore, but would be an excellent "No. 2" if the 49ers can find an upgrade on Michael Crabtree. Boldin should return as a passable WR3 but ideal WR4 in 2015 re-draft leagues.

Anquan Boldin caught 7-of-9 targets for 61 yards Week 16 against the Chargers.

With Michael Crabtree sidelined most of the game, Boldin was the clear No. 1 option in the passing game, garnering nine of the 49ers' 24 targets. Boldin did not make much happen with the looks, but did have a touchdown catch called back because of a holding call in the second quarter. With Crabtree's playing status unknown, Boldin will set up as a WR3 in the 49ers' season finale against the Cardinals.

Anquan Boldin caught 2-of-4 targets for 23 yards in the 49ers' Week 15 loss to the Seahawks.

As feared, Boldin and the 49ers' passing "attack" was swallowed up by the Legion of Boom. Boldin could have had a third catch, but Colin Kaepernick rocketed the ball over his head. There was nobody within 10 yards of San Francisco's No. 1 receiver. Boldin will be back on the WR3 against the Chargers in Week 16.
Sun, Dec 14, 2014 07:40:00 PM

Anquan Boldin secured 4-of-9 targets for 54 yards in the 49ers' Week 14 loss to the Raiders.

He added four yards on a rushing attempt. The 49ers' passing game continued to struggle in this one, and Boldin didn't help San Francisco's cause with an ugly first-half drop. Boldin has been a steady WR3 all season, but will be more of a WR4 when the Niners travel to Seattle in Week 14.
Sun, Dec 7, 2014 07:42:00 PM

Anquan Boldin caught 3-of-5 targets for 18 yards Week 13 against the Seahawks.

Boldin briefly left with an undisclosed injury in the fourth quarter, but he returned for the final drive. Kaepernick was terrible in this game, and that severely limited the entire San Francisco offense. Boldin will return as a strong WR3 Week 14 against the Raiders.
Thu, Nov 27, 2014 11:35:00 PM

Anquan Boldin secured 9-of-12 targets for 137 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' Week 12 win over the Redskins.

Boldin turned in one of this game's highlight-reel plays late in the fourth quarter with a powerful 29-yard reception at the end of which "Q" drew a 15-yard unnecessary roughness flag. The catch set up Carlos Hyde's game-winning four-yard TD run. Proving to be a steal based on where he was drafted this fall, Boldin has been the lone consistent target in Colin Kaepernick's passing game. He does have a difficult Week 13 matchup on deck against Seattle.
Sun, Nov 23, 2014 07:42:00 PM

Anquan Boldin caught five passes for 53 yards in Sunday's Week 11 win over the Giants.

Boldin was a chain-moving beast, catching passes with defenders draped all over him and then fighting his way for first downs. In other words, another day at the office for a guy with at least five catches in five straight games. Boldin will be a better bet for a touchdown and more room for YAC in a home game against the Redskins in Week 12, making him a strong WR3.
Sun, Nov 16, 2014 05:19:00 PM

Anquan Boldin caught 6-of-15 targets for 95 yards and a touchdown in San Francisco's Week 10 win over the Saints.

Boldin drew seven more looks than any other 49er. Uncharacteristically, however, he also committed three drops. Either way, the 95 yards were his most since Week 1, while he's now cleared 90 in 3-of-4 games. Boldin has been Colin Kaepernick's No. 1 receiver, and that doesn't appear poised to change. He'll be a high-end WR3 against the Prince Amukamara-less Giants in Week 11.
Sun, Nov 9, 2014 05:30:00 PM

Anquan Boldin caught 6-of-7 targets for 93 yards and a touchdown against the Rams Week 9.

Boldin drifted open on a Kaepernick rollout in the second quarter and walked in for a 27-yard score. It was only his second touchdown of the year. Through eight games Boldin is on pace for 90 catches for 1080 yards and four touchdowns.
