2014 Outlook: Quality BackupLast updated on Jul-05-2014 by Brad Kruse
Boldin finished as the 15th-highest scoring wide receiver in 2013. Not bad for a guy considered entering the twilight of his career and third team in five seasons. What does Crabtree's return mean to Boldin? Surprisingly, in the five games Crabtree played, Boldin averaged 6.6 receptions for 91 yards and 0.4 touchdowns per contest. This compares to 4.73 receptions, 66 yards and 0.45 touchdowns in 11 games without Crabtree. Perhaps defenses put too much emphasis on covering Crabtree and left Boldin open, but either way, his production was so significant that he shouldn't be discounted off-hand this year. Furthermore, his 139.11 ADP (WR57) should tell you Boldin is extremely undervalued. Boldin typically played the No. 2 WR throughout his career, so even with some regression, an improved Colin Kaepernick could bridge the gap statistically.
Editor's note: The 49ers may strike more of an offensive balance thanks to the return of Crabtree, the advanced age of Frank Gore and addition of Stevie Johnson. More passes means more opportunities for Boldin to produce. His ADP is an absolute steal.
