2015 Outlook: Over the Hill (decreased production)


Week 14 DFS Update (12/12): Boldin had 24 targets in his last two games, which gives him a reasonable chance of delivering upside if he scores. Over the last three games he has 18 catches for 223 yards on 31 targets with Gabbert under center. Boldin has two 100-yard receiving games with two TDs, He averages 8.5 targets per game. The Browns rank 24th in the league in WR Fantasy defense, with 15 TDs allowed to WRs. Not ideal, but he has enough of an opportunity to score 20+ Fantasy points if he scores a TD.

Week 13 DFS Update (12/5): Boldin has looked pretty good in the last two games (5/93 and 8/93) with 18 targets. Anquan has two 100-yard receiving games and two TDs, while averaging eight targets per game. In 2014, he caught two of six targets for 34 yards against the Bears. Chicago has climbed to 12th in the NFL in WR Fantasy defense with 15 TDs allowed to WRs (two in the last four games). Not ideal, but he may get enough looks to surprise as this price point.

Boldin was the saving grace for the 49ers' passing game in 2014. He claimed his seventh season with 1,000 yards and his seventh year with more than 80 catches. Over the past two years, at ages 33 and 34, Anquan has caught 168 passes for 2,241 yards and 12 TDs. Last season, he had just one game with at least 100 yards and saw double-digit targets three times. Boldin caught six passes or more in eight games. He is currently ranked 15th all time in catches (940) and 19th in receiving yards (12,406). In the early draft season, Anquan has an ADP of 97 (39th WR selected), which is quite a bargain when you consider that he was a top-20 WR in PPR leagues in each of the past two campaigns. However, the last time Boldin posted consecutive 1,000-yard seasons, he followed them up with three relatively subpar years. For me, he's a tough buy even at a discount due to his age and my 'rule of three,' which states to avoid owning a player who is coming off of two solid years due to the likelihood of regression.
