Recent Player News

  • Posted: 1/8/2017 3:36pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin said he hasn't discussed his playing future with his family but still has a lot of 'passion' for the game.

    Huddle Up: Boldin finished with 67 catches and eight touchdowns in 2016, and if he does come back for another year, he can be a quality WR4 if he lands in the right offense.

  • Posted: 12/29/2016 5:03pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin (finger) practiced Thursday, Dec. 29, with 'what appeared to be a splint on his left ring finger,' and he also 'did not catch any balls with that hand during the open portion of practice.' In addition, he was only using his right hand to catch passes during red-zone passing drills.

    Huddle Up: Curiously, Boldin is not even listed on the injury report for Week 17, but clearly, he's still having some issue with that finger, which he injured on Monday night. Not only that, he also had to briefly exit the game for a time. Even when he's healthy, Boldin isn't the most reliable option to lean on in any format, and looks like a dicey WR4 this weekend.

  • Posted: 12/26/2016 7:05pm ET

    Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin (finger) returned to the Week 16 game against the Dallas Cowboys to start the second half.

    Huddle Up: Boldin reached 1,070 receptions with his first grab of the second half, moving into a tie for ninth place on the NFL's all-time catch list.

  • Posted: 12/26/2016 6:57pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin (finger) left the Week 16 game against the Dallas Cowboys Monday, Dec. 26, due to a finger injury. He is questionable to return.

    Huddle Up: Boldin posted two receptions for 14 yards on four targets in the first half. If he cannot return it would mean more playing time for T.J. Jones, while Marvin Jones and Golden Tate would need to pick up more slack.

  • Posted: 12/11/2016 8:51pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin posted three receptions for 49 yards and a touchdown in the Week 14 game against the Chicago Bears. He posted six targets.

    Huddle Up: Boldin has been decent working out of the slot in Detroit, finding the end zone five times in the past eight games. He is better for fantasy owners in PPR leagues rather than standard formats, as he has a decent amount of catches but mediocre yardage.

  • Posted: 10/23/2016 5:43pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin posted three receptions for 28 yards with a touchdown on four targets in the Week 7 game against the Washington Redskins.

    Huddle Up: Q has been a solid receiver out of the slot in the Motor City, re-emerging as a decent WR3 in most fantasy leagues. He'll look to extend his touchdown scoring streak to three games in Week 8 in Houston.

  • Posted: 10/16/2016 8:44pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin (ankle) posted eight receptions for a season-high 60 yards and a touchdown in the Week 6 game against the Los Angeles Rams. He was targeted nine times.

    Huddle Up: Boldin showed no ill-effects of the ankle injury which had him on the injury report this week. He has at least four grabs in five straight games and has been a solid WR3 in PPR fantasy leagues of 12 or more teams for his frequent grabs. He also has three scores over his past five games.

  • Posted: 10/12/2016 5:17pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin (ankle) did not participate in practice Wednesday, Oct. 12.

    Huddle Up: Owners will need to check on Boldin's status later in the week to see if he will be able to play in Week 6. He has caught at least four passes in each of the last four games and has two touchdowns on the season. He could be a flex option in deeper leagues but probably can be avoided in most standard leagues.

  • Posted: 9/18/2016 2:51pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin scored his first touchdown as a Lion in Week 2. He caught four passes for 48 yards in total against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, Sept. 18. Boldin had a second touchdown nullified by an offensive holding call against OG Laken Tomlinson.

    Huddle Up: Boldin found soft spots in the coverage and had a vintage showing. He remains barely playable for fantasy owners until more consistency in the passing game can be displayed. Boldin will be a waiver wire target for many owners, and he's worth stashing if you have an opening.

  • Posted: 9/8/2016 9:41am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin will be a big part of the offense this season, according to offensive coordinator Jim Bob Cooter.

    Huddle Up: Boldin has been a solid receiver over the past few seasons and should receive a decent amount of targets this season since Calvin Johnson is no longer part of the Lions. Boldin probably can be a No. 3 receiver or flex option most weeks.

  • Posted: 8/12/2016 10:59pm ET

    Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin has been impressive during training camp, and there is 'no doubt' he will be the No. 3 receiver to open the season, according to beat writer Kyle Meinke.

    Huddle Up: Boldin still has a lot left in the tank at age 35. He'll likely play primarily in the slot with Marvin Jones and Golden Tate lining up outside. Boldin isn't even getting drafted in a majority of leagues but he has some season-long and DFS value playing in the Lions offense.

  • Posted: 8/4/2016 8:54am ET

    Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin has been a steady target for QB Matthew Stafford throughout training camp, according to beat writer Tim Twentyman. He is expected to step into the slot and add toughness, experience and production to the position group.

    Huddle Up: Boldin posted 69 receptions, 789 yards and four touchdowns last season in San Francisco, despite a shaky quarterback situation. He is playing with a much better passer now, and even at 35 years old, consider him a PPR depth selection.

  • Posted: 7/26/2016 3:57pm ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) is finalizing a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: For those who were seeing a lot of value in Golden Tate and Marvin Jones stepping in for the Megatron-less Lions, this adds a new wrinkle to the depth chart -- and one which will take targets away from the two aforementioned wideouts.

  • Posted: 7/14/2016 4:41pm ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) has been pursued the strongest by the New Orleans Saints, according to a source. Boldin thinks highly of Saints wide receivers coach John Morton, who coached him with the San Francisco 49ers.

    Huddle Up: With a young crop of wideouts, the Saints could use a veteran presence, and Boldin would essentially be replacing Marques Colston -- but obstensively at a cheaper price.

  • Posted: 7/10/2016 11:52pm ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) has not been contacted by the Cincinnati Bengals, according to director of player personnel Duke Tobin.

    Huddle Up: The 35-year-old veteran is still searching for a new home, and Cincy still would a natural fit after losing Nos. 2 and 3 WRs Marvin Jones and Mohamed Sanu during the offseason.

  • Posted: 6/13/2016 11:04am ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) is visiting the Detroit Lions Monday, June 13.

    Huddle Up: Boldin has the size to replace the retired Calvin Johnson, though not the speed. He'd be an intriguing addition to the Lions' receiving corps, but he'd likely fall behind Golden Tate and Marvin Johnes in the battle for targets.

  • Posted: 5/19/2016 1:39pm ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) has not been contacted by head coach Chip Kelly since early February.

    Huddle Up: The soon-to-be 36-year-old WR is getting a little antsy with OTAs coming up, and it seems a return to San Fran remains his best opportunity for the time being.

  • Posted: 4/24/2016 5:21pm ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) could be sought back by the San Francisco 49ers if head coach Chip Kelly is unimpressed with the wide receivers' performances this week at minicamp.

    Huddle Up: The 35-year-old wideout, who led the Niners with 69 receptions for 789 yards and four TDs last season, hasn't drawn much interest on the open market and San Fran's wideout corps could certainly use a veteran presence with Quinton Patton, Torrey Smith and Bruce Ellington currently heading up the bunch.

  • Posted: 3/29/2016 7:20pm ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) is visiting the Washington Redskins on Tuesday, March 29, according to sources.

    Huddle Up: The 35-year-old Boldin no longer is a sure bet for 80-plus catches and 1,000 yards, but he's a strong veteran presence who still can provide decent numbers as a No. 2 or 3 wideout in the right situation.

  • Posted: 3/25/2016 3:25pm ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) is unlikely to sign with the Buffalo Bills with what they have, according to Bills general manager Doug Whaley. Whaley, though, also said anything was possible.

    Huddle Up: The Bills have a solid 1-2 starting WR punch in Sammy Watkins and Robert Woods and also just signed free-agent Leonard Hankerson. And while the team certainly could benefit from Boldin's veteran presence, it doesn't sound as if it's going to happen.

  • Posted: 3/6/2016 7:23pm ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (49ers) said it's important to him to play for a team that will compete at the highest level.

    Huddle Up: At age 35, Boldin led the Niners in receiving last season with 69 catches for 789 yards and four TDs, and the ultra-tough wideout could be a decent addition to a team looking for a complementary wideout and a veteran lockerroom presence. That aside, though, Boldin's best fantasy days are behind him.

  • Posted: 2/12/2016 10:50am ET

    San Francisco 49ers WR Anquan Boldin's 2016-18 contract years voided Friday, Feb. 12, which means he'll be an unrestricted free agent March 9.

    Huddle Up: No move from Chip Kelly, who has a penchant for big receivers. Maybe Riley Cooper is heading to San Francisco? Boldin still has game left, so even though he's advancing in age he should be able to find work in free agency.
