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.

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.

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.
Sun, Nov 2, 2014 08:14:00 PM

Anquan Boldin had seven catches for 50 yards in Week 7 against the Broncos.

With Chris Harris locking down Michael Crabtree, Boldin was targeted a team-high 10 times. He dropped a touchdown in the second quarter, and was also called for a penalty that cost the 49ers another score. Boldin remains just a low-upside WR3/4. He isn't a must-hold with the 49ers on a bye in Week 8.
Mon, Oct 20, 2014 01:19:00 AM

Anquan Boldin caught seven passes for 94 yards and one touchdown in the 49ers' Week 6 win over the Rams.

Boldin saw a team-high nine targets as Colin Kaepernick's safety valve over the middle and when the 49ers needed a first down. He found the end zone from 11 yards out in the third quarter on a play where Kaepernick bought time to his left and made an off-balance throw to a wide-open Boldin. He's always dominated the Rams. Boldin is a weekly WR3/4 with limited upside.

Anquan Boldin caught 4-of-8 targets for 72 yards in San Francisco's Week 5 win over the Chiefs.

Boldin made some ridiculously strong-handed grabs in a low-scoring game, but is now averaging just 4.3 catches for 51 yards since his 8/99 Week 1. Boldin offers nice floor as a WR4, but not much of a ceiling.
Sun, Oct 5, 2014 08:00:00 PM

Anquan Boldin caught five passes for 62 yards in Sunday's Week 4 win over the Eagles.

It was a typical Boldin game as he made tough catches over the middle and toe-tapped on the sideline. But given the dream matchup, the final product was disappointing. Boldin still doesn't have a touchdown on the season and is on pace for just 84 catches and 896 yards. He'll be a low-end WR3 against the Chiefs in Week 5.
Sun, Sep 28, 2014 08:12:00 PM

Anquan Boldin caught 6-of-6 targets for 36 yards in San Francisco's Week 3 loss to the Cardinals.

Boldin's biggest contribution didn't show up in the box score, as he committed a devastating personal foul in the third quarter, turning a 1st-and-goal from the Cardinals' six-yard line into a 1st-and-"goal" from the Cardinals' 21. The drive ended with a blocked field goal. With Michael Crabtree back to full health, Boldin has been limited to eight catches for 70 yards over his past two games. He's a low-end WR3.
