Description: San Francisco wide receiver Anquan Boldin leads the team in targets with 15, catching 10 of them, for 133 yards over the first two games.
Insight: Boldin was sensational last season, hauling in a team-high 85 catches for 1,179 yards, but he isn't likely going to get close to those numbers in 2014 with a healthy Michael Crabtree as the No. 1 receiver. He'd be a great handcuff for Crabtree, should the injury-prone wideout go down.

Insight: Boldin was sensational last season, hauling in a team-high 85 catches for 1,179 yards. Fantasy owners shouldn't be worried about Boldin's age (33) but it's worth noting that most of Boldin's numbers in 2013 came with Michael Crabtree (torn Achilles) out of the lineup. Crabtree being back at 100 percent could spell trouble for Boldin in 2014.

Description: Niners wideout Anquan Boldin came to play Sunday against Carolina.
Insight: The veteran led all receivers with 136 yards on eight catches. Boldin didn't score in the game as Captain Munnerlyn pulled him down at the two after breaking off a 45-yard gain in the third quarter. Going back to last season, Boldin has caught 30 passes for 516 yards in his last five playoff games. His teams (he played for the Ravens in 2012) have won all five games.

Description: Anquan Boldin made his 49ers debut a memorable one with 13 receptions for 208 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Wow. Boldin slipped right into Michael Crabtree's spot as the team's No. 1 receiver and looked as though he had played with Colin Kaepernick for years. Fantasy owners who drafted Boldin to be a WR3 have to be salivating.
 
7/16/2013 6:01:00 PM
Description: According to SacBee.com, 49ers receiver Anquan Boldin looked as if he'd been playing with QB Colin Kaepernick for 10 years rather than a few weeks this spring.
Insight: With Michael Crabtree out for most or all of the 2013 season with a complete tear of his right Achilles' tendon, Boldin, along with tight end Vernon Davis, will see plenty of targets from Kaepernick. Crabtree saw 10.4 targets per game during Kaepernick's nine starts (including playoffs) last season.
 
5/28/2013 8:20:00 PM
Description: San Francisco coach Jim Harbaugh said Tuesday that receiver Anquan Boldin has "picked up the system fast," according to SacBee.com.
Insight: Boldin caught several passes from Colin Kaepernick during practice Tuesday and was the top target for the team's other three quarterbacks. With Michael Crabtree possibly out for the season due to an Achilles' tendon tear, Boldin will be the No. 1 receiver. Crabtree saw 9.4 targets per week and compiled 41 catches, 595 yards and five touchdowns in seven games after Kaepernick became the starter last season.
 
3/11/2013 6:37:00 PM
Description: The Ravens swapped wide receiver Anquan Boldin for the 49ers' sixth-round draft pick on Monday.
Insight: It's a sad end to what was mostly a successful tenure for Boldin in Baltimore. Boldin wasn't willing to take a pay cut and apparently that was enough to send him packing. Expect Boldin and Colin Kaepernick to hook up on plenty of touchdown passes in San Francisco next season.
 
3/10/2013 10:15:00 PM
Description: The Baltimore Sun reports that Ravens wideout Anquan Boldin has refused to take a pay cut.
Insight: The Ravens tried to reduce Boldin's annual salary from $6 million to $4 million but the 32-year-old wouldn't allow it. Baltimore could opt to cut Boldin if the two sides can't work out a compromise within the next couple of days.
 
2/8/2013 8:41:00 PM
Description: According to NBC's Erik Kuselias, wideout Anquan Boldin will announce his retirement if the Ravens cut him during the offseason.
Insight: Boldin has decided that Baltimore is where he'll finish his NFL career. Boldin was spectacular in the playoffs (22 receptions, 380 yards, four TD) and at age 32, he still has plenty left in the tank. We're guessing the Ravens will come to their senses and hold on to Boldin, though he may have to take a paycut.
 
1/31/2013 8:48:00 PM
Description: ESPN's Adam Schefter suggested that the Ravens might cut wide receiver Anquan Boldin after the season.
Insight: Boldin has carried the Ravens in the postseason (276 yards and three TD) and even at age 32, he's still one of the most physically gifted receivers in the NFL. But this isn't about Boldin's ability: this is about money. The Ravens have made it clear that re-signing Joe Flacco will be their top priority this offseason. That means Boldin will have to take a significant pay cut if he wants to return to Baltimore in 2013.
 
1/18/2013 9:58:00 AM
Description: Ravens' wideout Anquan Boldin, who has been dealing with a shoulder injury, was a full participant in both Wednesday and Thursday's practices and is probable for the AFC Championship on Sunday against New England.
Insight: Boldin's shoulder injury should not be of concern to any fantasy owners and with Pats' CB Aqib Talib likely to focus on Torrey Smith, Boldin could be Joe Flacco's No. 1 target.
 
1/11/2013 12:07:00 PM
Description: Ravens' wideout Anquan Boldin, who was spectacular last Sunday against Indianapolis (5-145-1) has been a full participant in both practices this week and is a go for Saturday against Denver..
Insight: Boldin's shoulder injury should not be of concern to any fantasy owners. With Champ Bailey likely to match up against the Ravens' deep threat, Torrey Smith, Boldin could produce big numbers for a second consecutive week.
 
1/6/2013 8:18:00 PM
Description: Ravens wideout Anquan Boldin was spectacular Sunday against Indianapolis. He caught five passes for 145 yards and a touchdown.
Insight: Boldin's 18-yard touchdown grab was a thing of beauty. The defender had his hands all over Boldin but somehow he still made the catch. Boldin missed last week's game against Cincinnati because of a shoulder injury.
 
1/6/2013 9:25:00 AM
Description: Baltimore receiver Anquan Boldin was a full participant in Friday's practice and is probable for Sunday's AFC Wild Card Playoff against Indianapolis. He's dealing with a shoulder injury.
Insight: The Ravens rested most of their starters last Sunday to avoid injury heading into this week's first round matchup against the Colts. Boldin's shoulder is fine and we'd be shocked if he's not on the field this week against Indianapolis.

12/25/2012 9:33:00 AM
Description: Baltimore wideout Anquan Boldin injured shoulder is just a bruise and minor as coach John Harbaugh described it on Sunday after the game.
Insight: Boldin was having a strong game in Week 16 before the injury (seven catches, 93 yards), but wasn't asked to return to the game because the Ravens were in the process of dominating the Giants.
 
12/24/2012 2:58:00 PM
Description: Baltimore wideout Anquan Boldin injured his shoulder during the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Giants and is listed as questionable, but coach John Harbaugh called it a "minor" injury.
Insight: Boldin was having a strong game before the injury (seven catches, 93 yards). Except for getting shut out by Denver in Week 15, Boldin has played well over the last few weeks.

Description: Baltimore wideout Anquan Boldin injured his shoulder during the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Giants. His return is doubtful.
Insight: Boldin was having a strong game before the injury (seven catches, 93 yards). Look for Jacoby Jones to become more involved in the Ravens' offense now that Boldin is likely done for the day.
