Anquan Boldin excited for 49ers offense


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/3/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin said he's excited for the offense this year with Michael Crabtree coming back at 100 percent. Crabtree missed the first 11 games last year with an Achilles injury.

Boldin said in an interview with CBSSports.com that Colin Kaepernick now has all of his weapons back with Crabtree, Boldin and Vernon Davis. Quinton Patton is expected to take on a bigger role, and the 49ers have an excellent backfield with Frank Gore and the potential of second-year running back Marcus Lattimore, who is coming back from a devastating knee injury at South Carolina in 2012.

"It's going to be big," Boldin said of Crabtree being back. "It's going to be major for us. Toward the end of the season you were able to see a glimpse of what it's like to have me and him on the field at the same time, and then you have Vernon working out of the tight end position. And we have the young guy in Quinton Patton coming along. We were expecting him to play well. With all four of us on the field and Frank coming out of the backfield and getting Lattimore healthy, it's going to be tough. It's going to be a potent offense, and we're looking to make a run this year."


Anquan Boldin never expected to leave 49ers


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(4/3/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin never thought he would leave San Francisco even though he was a free agent this offseason.

Boldin signed a two-year deal worth $12 million with $9 million guaranteed, and he never tested free agency. 

"It was a place that I wanted to go back to," Boldin said in an interview with CBSSports.com. "I felt like during my one-year tender there everything fell into place. I was welcomed with open arms. It was a franchise that wanted me there. I fell into a great, great locker room. Some guys that really want to win. Guys that are hungry. Coaches that are hungry. And a fan base that is crazy. It was a place that my family loved as well. They had a great time out there. It was a good fit."

Boldin had a solid season in 2013 when he caught 85 passes for 1,179 yards and seven touchdowns. The catches were his best total since his last season in Arizona in 2009, his yards were his best since 2006 and he last scored seven touchdowns in 2010.

by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Anquan Boldin, 49ers 'closing in on deal'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

49ers want Anquan Boldin back but 'there's work to be done'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/20/2014) 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said free agent Anquan Boldin is a big part of the team's 2014 plans at receiver.

“We’re thinking about it a lot,” he said. “There’s a lot to be excited about, a lot to be done at that position and Anquan is No. 1. There’s angst and there’s work to be done.”

Harbaugh said he's encouraged by the talks with Boldin, who caught 85 passes for 1,179 receiving yards and seven touchdowns in his first season with the team.

“The direction is very positive,” Harbaugh said. “It’s not just me who wants Anquan Boldin back. I feel there’s a process. It could be days, weeks, but there’s a process. It’s going in a positive direction from the standpoint of the San Francisco 49ers.”


49ers have contract priorities this offseason


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/14/2014) A source told ProFootballTalk.com that the Niners are making it a priority to extend the contracts of coach Jim Harbaugh, quarterback Colin Kaepernick and receiver Anquan Boldin this offseason. 

Boldin is a free agent while Kaepernick still has a year left on the deal he signed as a rookie. If the team were to franchise him next spring the price tag would be around $16 million. That might be a starting point in the team's negotiations.

Harbaugh is signed through the 2015 season. It is believed that Harbaugh will command at least as much as his brother John Harbaugh makes with the Ravens -- $7 million per year. 


Sounds like Anquan Boldin will stay with the 49ers


by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer
(2/13/2014) Anquan Boldin and the 49ers have shown mutual interest in sticking with each other this spring. According to NFL Network, a deal should be reached between the two sides. 

Boldin, 33, stunned in 2013 with 85 catches for 1,179 yards and seven touchdowns in 2013, his best numbers since his days with the Cardinals. 


49ers unlikely to use franchise tag


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/11/2014) The 49ers are not expected to use the franchise tag in 2014, reports CSNBayArea.com. Receiver Anquan Boldin and safety Donte Whitner are potential candidates, but the tag does not appear to be a realistic option for them, the report said.

The projected receiver tag of $11.5 million is too high for Boldin, who turns 34 next season, according to the website. And the projected safety tag of $8 million is more than the 49ers want to spend to keep Whitner.


Report: Anquan Boldin most likely back as 49ers' No. 2 wideout


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/6/2014) Free agent receiver Anquan Boldin is the most likely candidate to start opposite Michael Crabtree in 2014, reports CSNBayArea.com. The website suggests the 49ers offer Boldin, 33, a two-year deal in the $10 million range with $6 million guaranteed.

San Francisco has second-year wideout Quinton Patton returning, possibly as the No. 3 wideout, and is expected to draft a receiver early, too.


49ers in hunt for 'downfield receiver'


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(2/3/2014) For the 49ers to overtake Seattle, they must find a downfield receiver to complement Michael Crabtree and tight end Vernon Davis, according to the Sacramento Bee. The paper mentions Texas A&M's Mike Evans and Oregon State's Brandin Cooks as potential draft targets.

"Either way, the key is to make the Seattle defense scoot off the line of scrimmage," the paper said.

Veteran receiver Anquan Boldin is set to become a free agent.


Report: 75 percent chance Anquan Boldin returns to 49ers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/27/2014) Receiver Anquan Boldin is "vital" to the 49ers, and there's a 75 percent chance the impending free agent re-signs with the team, reports ESPN.com. The website notes that at age 33, Boldin might not generate much interest and the 49ers "might be his best fit."

Boldin led the team with 85 catches for 1,179 yards and seven touchdowns.


Anquan Boldin hints he'll return to 49ers


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin, an impending free agent, hinted he'll be back with the team in 2014. “Thank you @49ers fans for embracing my family and I during our first year in San Francisco,” Boldin tweeted. “Your support this year was amazing.”

ProFootballTalk.com notes Boldin referred to his "first year" in San Fran, implying there will be a second. That remains to be seen when free agency starts in under two months.

Boldin led the 49ers with 85 catches for 1,179 yards and seven touchdowns.


Anquan Boldin scores first postseason TD for 49ers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(1/19/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin came up big as he scored his eighth postseason touchdown, and his first for San Francisco in Sunday's NFC Championship game against the Seahawks.

Boldin was charged with a pair of drops earlier in the game, but made it up with a leaping catch over Earl Thomas for a 26-yard touchdown, which gave the lead back to San Francisco with 6:29 remaining in the third quarter. He led the team with five catches for 53 yards and a touchdown on nine targets in a 23-17 loss.

Anquan Boldin has great Championship round history


by Jamey Eisenberg | Senior Fantasy Writer
(1/16/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin is playing in his third conference title game in a row Sunday at Seattle in the NFC Championship Game. He has done well in his previous two trips, so hopefully the third time remains the charm.

Over the past two years, Boldin has played in the Championship round twice while with the Ravens, and both games were against the Patriots. He had six catches for 101 yards against New England in 2011 and five catches for 60 yards and two touchdowns against the Patriots in 2012. 

If Boldin can play well again this week, he could be making a repeat trip to the Super Bowl, but this is a tough matchup. The last time Boldin played in Seattle he was swallowed up by standout cornerback Richard Sherman, who shadowed Boldin and held him to one catch for 7 yards on four targets.

In the rematch, Boldin had the benefit of a healthy Michael Crabtree, and he got free for six catches for 93 on eight targets. We're expecting a similar performance this week, especially since Colin Kaepernick relies on Boldin to make big plays (he had eight catches for 136 yards last week at Carolina on 12 targets).

Boldin also has been dominant in the playoffs overall the past three seasons with double digits in Fantasy points in six of eight games. We like Boldin this week despite the tough matchup, and if you need a receiver in the Playoff Challenge then consider him a quality option.


Will Seahawks' secondary get away with overly physical play?


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/15/2014) Over the last four years, fewer penalties have been called during the playoffs than during the regular season, according to nflpenalties.com. This year's playoff games are averaging about two fewer penalties per game.

According to the Sacramento Bee, that raises the question: Will the Seahawks' secondary get away with crossing the line against 49ers receivers Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin and Vernon Davis?

Seattle led the league in pass interference penalties during the regular season. Cornerback Richard Sherman drew nine flags overall. 

"They're one of those teams that is willing to get a couple of (defensive holding, illegal contact or interference) penalties to be able to play the way they do," Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks told the New York Post. "Out of 60 snaps, they're willing to trade three or four (penalties). They just take their chances."

Seattle coach Pete Carroll was asked if his team might benefit from an official swallowing his whistle in Sunday's NFC Championship Game. "I don't know if it's going to be an advantage or not," he said. "It will be equal, I'm sure."


Anquan Boldin dominates Panthers


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(1/12/2014) San Francisco wide receiver Anquan Boldin dominated Carolina.

Boldin was Colin Kaepernick's main target all day. He finished the game with eight receptions for 136 yards. He managed to get behind the defense for a 45 yard reception in the third quarter. Though Boldin didn't score on the play, the 49ers scored just a few plays later. Boldin will have his hands full next week against Seattle.


Anquan Boldin held to 38 yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/5/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin wasn't a huge part of his team's 23-20 playoff win in Green Bay. He caught three of six targets for 38 yards.

Boldin visits the Panthers in next Sunday's divisional playoffs. In Week 10, Boldin caught three passes for 23 yards in the 10-9 loss to Carolina.


Michael Crabtree opening things up for Anquan Boldin


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(1/1/2014) The return of receiver Michael Crabtree has changed the way defenses play the 49ers, coach Jim Harbaugh said Wednesday.

“He’s a huge threat," Harbaugh said. "I think last week they basically matched [Cardinals corner Patrick] Peterson up on him the whole game and we had a mismatch with Anquan Boldin. So, I think defenses are trying to do things to stop him now, which opens other people up.”

Crabtree caught three ball for 29 yards Week 17, while Boldin hauled in nine passes for 145 yards and a touchdown. The 49ers visit Green Bay in a playoff game Sunday.


Coach admits team unable to replace Anquan Boldin


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(1/1/2014) John Harbaugh has admitted that the Ravens were hurt this season by their inability to replace the production lost when wide receiver Anquan Boldin was traded to the 49ers.

Premier wideout Torrey Smith contributed 65 catches for 1,128 yards, but a career low four touchdowns. No other wide receiver managed more than 524 yards through the air.

"If we had been able to replace Anquan, then ... Defensively, we were able to replace those guys, and it showed up in the way we performed on defense," Harbaugh told the team website. "We probably weren't able to do that the same way with Anquan, unfortunately."


Anquan Boldin ends regular season with touchdown, 100-yard game


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/29/2013) 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin ended the regular season on a high note as he scored his seventh touchdown of the season in Week 17 at Arizona.

Boldin came down with an over-the-shoulder grab in the end zone for a 4-yard score in the opening quarter. He caught nine of 11 passes thrown his way for 149 yards and a touchdown in a 23-20 victory. He ended the regular season with 87 catches for 1,179 yards and seven touchdowns.

Boldin will look to extend his scoring streak to three games when the 49ers travel to Green Bay for a showdown against the Packers in the opening round of the playoffs. He had 13 receptions for 208 yards and a touchdown in the season opener against the Packers.

Anquan Boldin seeking back-to-back games with TDs


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/26/2013) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin will try to reach the end zone in back-to-back games for only the second time this season heading into final week of the regular season against Arizona.

Boldin caught six of the seven passes thrown his way for 72 yards and a touchdown in a win over the Falcons in Week 16. He has 76 catches for 1,030 yards and six touchdowns. In a 32-20 win over the Cardinals in Week 6, Boldin was limited to only three catches for 28 yards on eight targets.

The Cardinals have only allowed two touchdowns to wide receivers over the previous six games. Opposing wide receivers have scored 17.13 Fantasy points per game against the Cardinals this season. Consider him a solid starting option for Week 17.

Anquan Boldin surpasses 1,000 receiving yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/24/2013) With a 22-yard catch vs. Atlanta, 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin went over 1,000 yards for the sixth time in his career and first since 2009. Boldin finished with six catches on seven targets for 72 yards and a touchdown.

Boldin joined Michael Crabtree (2012) as the only 49ers to surpass 1,000 receiving yards since Terrell Owens did it in 2003.

Boldin tied Crabtree for the team lead in targets. He scored for the first time since Week 12 on a quick screen, squeezing between the blocks of tight ends Vernon Davis and Vance McDonald for a 10-yard touchdown. It was his ninth touchdown catch on Monday Night Football, most among active NFL players.

Up to 1,030 receiving yards, Boldin visits Arizona in Week 17.


Anquan Boldin getting 'more honest looks' from defenses


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/18/2013) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin hasn't scored since Michael Crabtree returned from a torn Achilles tendon in Week 13. But Boldin's other numbers are up. Crabtree's presence has changed the way teams are defending San Francisco.

“We get a lot more honest looks from defenses because we have a balance across the field, as far as the capability to make plays," quarterback Colin Kaepernick told the San Francisco Chronicle. "That’s opened up a lot of things for Anquan."

In the seven games before Crabtree's return, Boldin averaged four catches for 50.3 yards. In three games with Crabtree, Bolden has averaged six catches for 81.3 yards.

Monday night, Boldin faces a Falcons defense giving up the 11th-most Fantasy points to receivers (23.4 per game). Atlanta has surrendered the fourth-most passing touchdowns (28).

Start Boldin as a WR3 in Week 16.
