    Buffalo Bills WR Anquan Boldin announced Sunday, Aug. 20, that he has decided to retire from the NFL.

    Huddle Up: Boldin's sudden retirement should solidify Zay Jones and Jordan Matthews as Buffalo's top receivers, but with Matthews dealing with an injury, Jones could be the biggest beneficiary. Buffalo's run-heavy offense makes both WR4 candidates, but Jones has the potential to become a flex play.

  • Posted: 8/16/2017 8:28pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Anquan Boldin will make his team debut in the second preseason game Thursday, August 17, against the Philadelphia Eagles. He is expected to play a 'good amount in the first half,' as he wants to continue to nail down the timing in the passing game with QB Tyrod Taylor.

    Huddle Up: Boldin proved last year in Detroit that he still has some usefulness left at age 36, and while Jordan Matthews is sidelined, he figures to attract plenty of targets. However, with Matthews expected back by Week 1, the ceiling probably won't be that high for the 14-year veteran, and as a result, it'll be hard to trust him as a WR3 in standard formats.

  • Posted: 8/8/2017 5:06pm ET

    Buffalo Bills WR Anquan Boldin lined up as the slot receiver with the first-team offense during practice Tuesday, Aug. 8.

    Huddle Up: Boldin has a chance to be the No. 2 receiver for the Bills this season but may see most of his time in the slot. He should have a solid role in the passing game and can be a No. 5 receiver in most fantasy leagues.

  • Posted: 8/7/2017 9:27am ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Lions) will agree to a one-year deal with the Buffalo Bills Monday, Aug. 7.

    Huddle Up: Boldin saw a ton of red zone targets last season, and he'll be of use in PPR as a WR4 or WR5.

  • Posted: 7/17/2017 3:08pm ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Lions) said he has talked with several teams about the possibility of signing and is scheduled to meet with an undisclosed team Sunday, July 23.

    Huddle Up: Boldin should find a new team during the early part of training camp and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for a team. His fantasy value likely will depend on his team, but he could be a late-round option in deeper leagues.

  • Posted: 7/9/2017 5:56pm ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Bills) is going to be signed, in the opinion of Brian Baldinger of the NFL Network, and Baldinger believes the Buffalo Bills are the best fit for Boldin.

    Huddle Up: The Bills could use another proven option in the passing attack, but Boldin has said he would prefer to play closer to his home state of Florida. The veteran is at least worth a flier as a WR5 wherever he signs, but his value would receive a boost if he lands with a receiver-needy team like the Bills.

  • Posted: 6/23/2017 1:23pm ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Lions) probably is not an option for the Baltimore Ravens at this point because the team is content with the receivers they have on the roster, in the opinion of the Baltimore Sun's Jeff Zrebiec.

    Huddle Up: Boldin probably will not sign with a team until training camp, so owners should keep an eye on his situation. He is coming off a successful 2016 season and can be a No. 3 or No. 4 receiver for an NFL team. Owners in fantasy leagues could consider him a No. 5 receiver depending on his team.

  • Posted: 6/19/2017 9:16pm ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Lions) said that his preference is to sign with a team 'right before training camp.'

    Huddle Up: This is the same approach Boldin followed last year before landing in Detroit, where he posted some solid numbers, recording 67 catches for 584 yards and eight touchdowns in his lone campaign with the Lions. Ultimately, Boldin has said previously that he is looking for the right situation for his family and would like to be close to his Florida home. Last season's showing proved the 36-year-old still has some value to offer.

  • Posted: 6/16/2017 3:12pm ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Lions) may prefer to sign with a team closer to his Florida home, according to people close to Boldin.

    Huddle Up: Boldin should receive interest once teams start training camp because he is coming off a solid 2016 season when he posted 584 yards and eight touchdowns. Boldin can be a late-round pick in fantasy leagues if he has a solid role in his new team's passing game.

  • Posted: 4/30/2017 1:19pm ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Lions) has received interest from the Baltimore Ravens this offseason.

    Huddle Up: The Ravens lost Steve Smith and Kamar Aiken this offseason, so Boldin could improve the team's receiving corps. He is 36 years old but was able to record 67 receptions, 584 yards and eight touchdowns in 2016. Boldin would have a solid role in the passing game if he signs with the Ravens and can be a No. 4 or No. 5 receiver for fantasy owners.

  • Posted: 4/2/2017 9:06am ET

    Updating an ongoing story, Detroit Lions executives want free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Lions) to return, but reaching an agreement on a new deal is becoming an uncertainty.

    Huddle Up: Boldin led the Lions with eight touchdown receptions in 2016 and is clearly the best choice to operate out of the slot among Detroit's current options on its roster. The well-aged veteran would be a WR5 with flex consideration should he re-sign in Detroit.

  • Posted: 3/18/2017 3:18pm ET

    Free-agent WR Anquan Boldin (Lions) could return to the Detroit Lions for a second season according to ESPN's Michael Rothstein, but likely only if T.J. Jones and Jace Billingsley do not step up to assume the No. 3 receiving job. Rothstein also believes Boldin is unlikely to sign with any team until just before training camp.

    Huddle Up: Boldin is 36, so it makes sense the Lions would want one of their younger receivers to step forward. Boldin was arguably Matthew Stafford's favorite third-down and red zone weapon last season and still has enough left to help a team in a similar role in 2017. Regardless of where he lands, he'll like be no more than a low-end WR4 or WR5 in fantasy.

  • Posted: 2/9/2017 7:28pm ET

    Detroit Lions impending free-agent WR Anquan Boldin said he is looking forward to seeing what opportunities present themselves in free agency and is in no hurry to decide his future.

    Huddle Up: If Boldin does decide to return, it will likely be with a team that plans to utilize him. He showed last year he can still provide useful depth as a WR4.

  • 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.
