Ravens coach John Harbaugh said he would be interested in bringing back free agent Anquan Boldin.
"I do believe he can still play at the highest level," Harbaugh said. Boldin played for the Ravens from 2010-12 and would fill their need for a possession receiver. The veteran will return for his 15th season, but he is not expected to sign until closer to training camp. Boldin caught 67 passes for 584 yards (8.7 YPR) and eight scores with the Lions last season.

Free agent Anquan Boldin doesn’t expect to sign until the start of training camp.

Boldin didn’t sign with Detroit until late July last year. He plans to play another season, but hasn’t been connected to any teams. The Lions haven’t ruled out bringing Boldin back.

ESPN's Jim Trotter reports free agent WR Anquan Boldin will return for his 15th season.

Boldin played for the Lions last year, but the Detroit Free Press' Dave Birkett has "heard" Boldin may want to remain close to his Florida home. The veteran caught 67 passes for 584 yards and eight touchdowns in 2016. Still a useful possession and red-zone target, Boldin will be an asset wherever he lands.
Mar 13 - 12:07 PM

Free agent Anquan Boldin is undecided on playing football in 2017.

Boldin stated after Detroit's playoff loss that he would like to play another year, but he may be having second thoughts at age 36. Per's Tim Twentyman, Boldin is "open to returning" to Detroit if he indeed keeps playing. Boldin's playmaking ability evaporated long ago, but he can still help an offense on third downs and in the red zone. He caught eight TDs in 2016.
Feb 3 - 8:36 PM

Impending free agent Anquan Boldin hinted after the Wild Card loss to the Seahawks that he would like to continue his playing career.

"Yeah," Boldin said. "I haven’t sat down with my family at this point, but there’s still a passion that burns within me for football." Boldin just wrapped up his age-36 season but showed he still has game left in the tank. He isn't someone who is going to win with speed, but Boldin catches everything thrown to him and became one of Matthew Stafford's most-trusted red-zone targets. If he wants to play in 2017, the Lions would likely bring him back.
Jan 9 - 9:40 AM

Anquan Boldin caught 2-of-6 targets for 24 yards in the Lions' Wild Card loss to the Seahawks.

Boldin did more harm than good in this one, getting flagged for two unnecessary roughness penalties which set the Lions back. Despite the disappointing end, it was a successful season overall for the 36-year-old. He caught 67 passes for 584 yards while finding the end zone eight times in the regular season. An impending free agent, Boldin has to decide if he wants to continue his career, and the Lions have to decide if they want to re-sign him. If Boldin decides to keep playing, it is likely Detroit will welcome him back with open arms.
Jan 8 - 12:24 AM

Anquan Boldin caught 4-of-6 targets for 57 yards and a touchdown in Week 17 against the Packers.

Boldin's touchdown came on a hail mary at the end of the game. He saw three red-zone targets, but was quiet for most of the night. Boldin has been highly productive on third downs and near the end-zone with eight touchdowns this season. He'll remain a TD-dependent play against Seattle in the Wild Card Round.
Jan 2 - 12:20 AM

The Detroit Free Press reports Anquan Boldin is battling a finger injury.

Boldin isn't listed on this week's injury report, but per reporter Dave Birkett, he's been catching few, if any, balls in practice. He has a splint on his left ring finger. The Lions are probably simply trying to have Boldin avoid further injury, but he should undoubtedly be on the injury report. It's something for DFS players to keep in mind. Perhaps Eric Ebron will finally get some looks in the red zone.
Thu, Dec 29, 2016 07:12:00 PM

Anquan Boldin caught 5-of-7 targets for 33 yards in the Lions' Week 16 loss to the Cowboys.

Boldin continues to be Matthew Stafford's safety blanket on third downs and in the red zone. But Stafford didn't throw a touchdown in this one, and the Lions instead scored all three times on the ground. Boldin will be a touchdown-dependent WR4 next week in a primetime clash with the Packers.
Tue, Dec 27, 2016 12:28:00 AM

Anquan Boldin caught 3-of-4 targets for 13 yards in the Lions' Week 15 loss to the Giants.

Somewhere around 3-4 catches for minimal yards is Boldin's weekly expectation. He made a big catch on 3rd-and-2 in this one, but that was about it. His value comes when the Lions are making trips to the red zone. Detroit failed to score a touchdown Sunday, leaving Boldin useless in fantasy.
Sun, Dec 18, 2016 04:56:00 PM

Anquan Boldin caught 3-of-6 targets for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Lions' Week 14 win over the Bears.

Boldin continued to deliver in clutch situations, peeling off a critical 23-yard run-after-catch gain and securing a short TD from Matthew Stafford in the first half. Although Boldin never puts up big yardage totals, he has earned a significant piece of the passing-game pie in Detroit, particularly in the red zone. He'll be a touchdown-or-bust WR4/flex in Week 15 at the Giants.
Sun, Dec 11, 2016 04:18:00 PM

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.
Sun, Dec 4, 2016 05:45:00 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.
Thu, Nov 24, 2016 04:03:00 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.
Sun, Nov 20, 2016 05:51:00 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.
