49ers WR Anquan Boldin catches seven passes vs. Chargers


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(12/21/2014) 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin recorded a team-high seven receptions on nine targets for 61 yards in his team's 38-35 overtime loss to the Chargers in Week 16.

Boldin managed more than half of the team's receiving production Saturday, as the other San Francisco players combined for only 53 yards on eight receptions, though rookie Bruce Ellington did managed to catch a touchdown.

Boldin had his best performance since a nine-catch, 137-yard breakout in Week 12. He's racked up 81 receptions for 981 yards with four touchdowns going into a Week 17 matchup with the Cardinals, a team for which he played from 2003 to 2009. He'll be looking to secure his seventh career 1,000-yard performance in the season finale.


49ers WR Michael Crabtree misses practice Wednesday


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(12/17/2014) 49ers wideout Michael Crabtree did not practice Wednesday due to a knee injury, reports CSNBayArea.com. Crabtree, who has not cleared 60 receiving yards since Week 11, isn't believed to be seriously hurt.

He's scheduled to play the Chargers on Saturday night. If Crabtree can't go, it could mean increased targets for fellow starter Anquan Boldin.


49ers' Anquan Boldin does little Week 15


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/14/2014) San Francisco wideout Anquan Boldin did little Week 15 against the Seahawks.

Boldin caught two passes, gaining 23 yards. The entire 49ers' receiving core had a tough time getting open during the contest. Boldin actually finished second on the team with four targets. He'll look for more Week 16 against the Chargers.


49ers' Anquan Boldin pulls in four passes


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(12/7/2014) San Francisco wideout Anquan Boldin hauled in four passes Week 14 against the Raiders.

Boldin didn't have a strong game, but still finished second on the team with 54 receiving yards. He was one of the two options Colin Kaepernick could depend on, as Boldin received nine targets. San Francisco's offense had a tough time getting anything done, so the entire receiving core was left with lackluster performances.

Boldin will look for more Week 15 against the Seahawks. 


49ers' pass catchers share very small pie in loss vs. Seahawks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/28/2014) There wasn't much offense to go around for the 49ers' wide receivers and tight ends in the team's 19-3 loss to the Seahawks in Week 13, with wide receiver Steve Johnson leading the receiving unit with three catches for just 28 yards.

Running back Carlos Hyde led the team with 38 receiving yards, but there was simply no offense to speak of for the 49ers on Thanksgiving. Wide receiver Anquan Boldin caught three of his five targets for just 18 yards, while teammate Michael Crabtree managed just 10 yards on three catches of his own. Tight end Vernon Davis kicked in two receptions for 13 yards.

The 49ers will hope for a big bounce-back performance in Week 14 against the Raiders.


Anquan Boldin helps lead 49ers to win against Washington


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/23/2014) 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin had a productive day to help lead the 49ers to a 17-13 victory over Washington Sunday.

Boldin was targeted a team-high 12 times and caught nine passes for 137 yards. Boldin had the play of the game on the 49ers’ first possession when he hauled in a 30-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The 137 receiving yards marked the first time Boldin had eclipsed more than 100 receiving yards in a game this season.

The 49ers play Seattle Week 13.


49ers WR Anquan Boldin has scoring streak snapped at two games


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(11/16/2014) 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin totaled five catches for 53 yards during a 16-10 win Week 11 at N.Y. Giants. His longest catch went 16 yards and he was targeted six times.

Boldin had his scoring streak snapped at two games Sunday. He had a touchdown in three of his previous four games. The 49ers are back in action Week 12 vs. Washington.


Anquan Boldin clearly the top option


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin just kept on rolling in Week 10's 27-24 win over the Saints Sunday.

Boldin, who was held out of the end zone in each of the first five games of the season, scoring for the third time in four games Sunday. He added six catches for 95 yards, his third 90-plus yard game in that span.

Boldin is clearly the top option in the 49ers' passing game, though it took a while for the hierarchy to establish itself. He has 50 Fantasy points over the last four games, and will look to keep it up in Week 11, with a matchup against a Giants pass defense that ranks among the 10 stingiest in the league when it comes to slowing down opposing wide receivers. 


Anquan Boldin leads 49ers in receptions during Week 10 victory


by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com
(11/9/2014) 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin was quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s favorite target during the 49ers’ Week 10 win against the Saints.

Boldin was targeted a team-high 15 times, hauling in six receptions for 95 yards and one touchdown. Bolden scored on a 15-yard reception in the second quarter.


Anquan Boldin the only thing reliable for 49ers


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(11/3/2014) Wide receiver Anquan Boldin was about the only 49er to reprise his Week 6 performance against the same opponent in Week 9, catching six passes for 93 yards and a touchdown against the Rams. He had seven catches for 94 yards and a touchdown three weeks earlier.

Of course, the 49ers won that game 31-17 and lost this one 13-10, which makes the repeat performance all the more impressive. He did it on a day nothing when went right for the 49ers.

After looking like he'd play second fiddle to Michael Crabtree earlier in the year, Boldin has emerged as quarterback Colin Kaepernick's preferred target, averaging 5.8 catches for 74.2 yards in his last five games. Crabtree, meanwhile, has become something like a third wheel to both him and Steve Johnson.

Boldin may not have much big-play potential, but as a consistent part of the 49ers' passing game, he's a decent third wide receiver in standard 12-team leagues.


Anquan Boldin leads 49ers receivers in Week 9 loss vs. Rams


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/2/2014) 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin was featured in the passing game Sunday, recording a team-high six receptions and 93 yards while scoring the offense's only touchdown in his team's 13-10 loss to the Rams in Week 9.

Boldin drifted past the coverage as quarterback Colin Kaepernick scrambled on a second-quarter play, snagging a pass while wide open at the 10-yard line and racing into the end zone for the 27-yard score. It's the second time in three weeks he's managed to deliver at least 90 yards and a touchdown.

The rest of the team's passing attack was largely held at bay in the loss, with Steve Johnson catching three passes on five targets for 41 yards and Michael Crabtree managing just 40 yards while grabbing five of his nine targets. Tight end Vernon Davis could only deliver two catches for 19 yards on three targets, and no other receiver caught more than one pass.

The 49ers will hope to bounce back in Week 10 when they head to New Orleans to square off with the Saints.


Steve Johnson: 49ers receivers aren't a 'bunch of pansies'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(10/30/2014) 49ers wide receiver Steve Johnson has played the role of star receiver in the past and has had pretty good success in the role, totaling more than 1,000 yards in three straight seasons from 2010-12 with the Bills.

However, in his first year with the 49ers, he's competing for playing time and targets with a pretty deep group of receivers that include Anquan Boldin, Michael Crabtree and Brandon Lloyd

Johnson, though, is content with the situation. His focus is helping the 49ers make the playoffs, which would result in Johnson's first playoff appearance in his seven-year career.

"No frustration at all," he said, per CSNBayArea.com. “"(The) only sense of frustration is being a competitor, you know, wanting to do more. But it ain’t like there’s a bunch of pansies in front of me.

"It’s cool to a certain extent. When we get in those situations, in the heat of the moment, of course, I’m a warrior. I’m ready to go out there. We got great guys out there on the field. You can’t be frustrated. It’s not going to look right."


Hard to trust any 49ers receivers right now


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) Though the 49ers have moved the ball well through the air this season, it hasn't led to much consistent success for their wide receivers, and that may not change much moving forward.

Anquan Boldin leads the team in yards, but has reached double figures in Fantasy scoring just once this season, in Week 6. He had 50 yards to finish third on the team in Week 7's blowout loss to the Broncos, behind both Steve Johnson and Brandon Lloyd. In fact, Lloyd and Johnson are both averaging more than 40 yards receiving per game, despite routinely finishing third and fourth on the team in snaps played among wide receivers.

The elephant in the room is Michael Crabtree, who should be the team's best option in the passing game. And yet, he has just seven more yards than Johnson on nearly 20 more targets. Crabtree has never really been a big-play receiver, but there is reason to think his current yards per catch number of 10.1 will rise close to his career mark of 12.7, which would obviously improve his value.

At this point, it is awfully tough to rely on any of the 49ers receivers, even if the team is putting the ball in the air 33.1 times per game, an increase of more than seven from last year. Crabtree might make for a nice buy-low candidate for Fantasy, but there also may not be much room for him to breakout until one or more players takes a back seat. 


Anquan Boldin catches seven passes in 49ers' Week 7 loss


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(10/20/2014) 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin caught seven of his 10 targets for 50 yards in his team's 42-17 loss to the Broncos in Week 7.

Boldin had at least one bad drop in the game and was unable to find much room to work downfield. He came into the week average 12.4 yards per reception but managed just 7.1 YPC against the Broncos. Boldin has collected 39 receptions for 447 yards and one touchdown in seven games. The 49ers have a bye in Week 8 before facing the Rams the following week.


Anquan Boldin emerging as the favorite


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(10/14/2014) With Michael Crabtree slowed by a foot injury, wide receiver Anquan Boldin has been playing a bigger-than-expected role in the 49ers passing game. He led the team in targets for the second straight game Week 6 at St. Louis and was only one off the team lead the week before.

He had the numbers to back up the targets, too, catching seven passes for 94 yards. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick also found him in the back of the end zone in the third quarter, showing a certain level of trust there.

Despite all the targets, this was the first time Boldin scored double-digit Fantasy points in standard CBSSports.com leagues this year. He's more of a possession guy and doesn't have the kind of big-play ability to make him an every-week starter in Fantasy even if he remains the top target over Crabtree.

But sometimes, a possession receiver is the best you can do. With the targets he's been getting, Boldin is a serviceable, if less-than-spectacular, Fantasy play.


Anquan Boldin continues to torment Rams


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/14/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin played his 16th career game against the Rams on Monday, and he nearly posted his seventh 100-yard performance against them. Boldin caught seven passes for 94 yards and a touchdown, giving him eight career scores against St. Louis.

Boldin drew a team-high nine targets and has gotten at least six every week. Early in the third quarter, Colin Kaepernick escaped the pocket and lofted a perfect 11-yard throw to Boldin in the back of the end zone. It was Boldin's 66th career touchdown.

Boldin visits the Broncos in Week 7.


Anquan Boldin misses chance at touchdown pass


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(10/5/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin caught a team-high four passes for 72 yards in the win over the Chiefs, but missed an opportunity to throw a touchdown pass. The former high school All-American at quarterback had Michael Crabtree open on a trick play, but underthrew him in the end zone.

Still, it was a nice performance from Boldin, who was targeted a team-high eight times. Boldin plays the Rams in Week 6 on Monday Night Football.


Anquan Boldin leads team with 62 receiving yards


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/28/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin caught five of seven targets for a team-high 62 yards in the win over the Eagles. Boldin is up to 21 catches for 231 yards this season, but he has yet to score.

Boldin plays the Chiefs in Week 5.


Steve Johnson complicates 49ers' receiving corps


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(9/25/2014) After looking every bit like the third wide receiver for an offense that can't sustain three wide receivers in Weeks 1 and 2, catching a combined four passes for 39 yards, Steve Johnson came out of nowhere with nine catches for 103 yards Week 3 at Arizona, raising a bunch of questions about the 49ers receiving corps.

The offense still isn't built to sustain three wide receivers, but the only way we can count on any of them in Fantasy is if we figure out who's going to play the biggest role.

Michael Crabtree appears the one safe bet right now. He's had back-to-back good games and is obviously the most talented of the three. Anquan Boldin and Johnson, though, have been as predictable. Boldin had eight catches for 99 yards in Week 1, and Johnson obviously did what he did in Week 3. Incidentally, neither had a big game in Week 2, when quarterback Colin Kaepernick did a fine job spreading the ball to tight ends Derek Carrier and Vernon Davis as well.

Maybe the answer is that the 49ers offense isn't built to sustain even two wide receivers. That's kind of the way I'm leaning right now. In deeper leagues, I'd prefer Boldin just because he plays so many of the team's snaps -- more than Crabtree, even -- but I'm not looking for either him or Johnson on the waiver wire right now.


Anquan Boldin held to less than 40 yards again


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(9/21/2014) 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin was a perfect 6 for 6 on passes thrown his way Sunday against the Cardinals. However, he only managed 36 receiving yards in a 23-14 loss.

Boldin's longest reception Sunday went for 7 yards. He came into the game averaging 107.3 receiving yards in three career games against Arizona.

Boldin doesn't have a touchdown in three games to open the season. He's been held to less than 40 receiving yards in two straight games. The 49ers are back in action Week 4 vs. Philadelphia.


Anquan Boldin does little with six targets


by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com
(9/15/2014) 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin caught two of six targets for 34 yards in the Week 2 loss to the Bears. With Michael Crabtree fully healthy, Boldin has taken a back seat in San Francisco's passing game.

Boldin visits the Cardinals in Week 3.


Anquan Boldin leads the way Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/7/2014) San Francisco wide receiver Anquan Boldin led the way Week 1 against the Cowboys.

Boldin proved to be Colin Kaepernick's favorite target. He caught eight balls for 99 yards during the game. He led the club with nine targets. While Boldin isn't thought of as a big-play receiver, he had the team's longest play of the game, picking up a 37 yard reception in the first quarter.

With the 49ers up by 25, Boldin didn't get many chances during the second half. Boldin had just three catches for 25 yards after halftime. Boldin also managed to come up with an onside kick recovery late in the game. 

Boldin will take on the Bears Week 2. 


Anquan Boldin looking for a repeat performance Week 1


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2014) San Francisco wide receiver Anquan Boldin is looking for another huge Week 1 performance against the Cowboys.

Boldin proved a lot of doubters wrong last season, posting his best yardage season since 2006. He was a huge part of the 49ers offense, picking up seven scores. Boldin’s impact was felt immediately last season, as he went for 208 yards and a touchdown in his first game with the club.

Boldin could be in for a repeat performance in 2014. The Cowboys boasted one of the worst defenses in the game last season. The team allowed 23.62 Fantasy points to opposing wide receivers. That ranked as the sixth-worst figure in the league. 

Things could be even better for Boldin Week 1. After a quiet offseason, Michael Crabtree suddenly appeared on the injury report Wednesday. While Crabtree is expected to play, he could be a bit limited due to the issue. That could open things up for Boldin to dominate. Given the matchup, Boldin is a pretty strong start Week 1. 


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.
