News you need to know

From the upgrade/downgrade report (Mon Sep 15): It had to be a bummer for Boldin owners to see Michael Crabtree look like the clear #1 receiver, in addition to seeing Colin Kaepernick struggle. Boldin is still a hold, but possibly just on the bye/injury/emergency level of your bench.

Week 3: at Arizona Cardinals

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. Colin Kaepernick has thrown 37/57 for 449 yards, three TDs and three interceptions to date, with 14/77/0 rushing so far. Last week, he tossed 21/34 for 248 yards passing, with one TD and three interceptions thrown, while taking four sacks for -16 yards. The turnovers killed the 49ers' chances to win the football game. Michael Crabtree finally looked like a #1 wideout with nine targets for 7/82/1 receiving during the game, which marginalized Vernon Davis (three for 3/39/0) and Anquan Boldin (six for 2/34/0) in terms of production - Davis was also hampered by an ankle injury that knocked him out of the game and led to him leaving the stadium on crutches. He had an MRI on September 15 - stay tuned to Footballguys.com's Players in the News later in the week to see if Davis can practice (or not) before inserting him in a lineup this week, folks. Arizona was tied for 14th in the NFL last season averaging 233 passing yards allowed per game, with 20 interceptions (tied for fifth) and 47 sacks (tied for sixth) over 16 games. This is a hard-nose, ball-hawking unit, friends. Philip Rivers managed 21/36 for 238 yards passing, one TD and one interception at Arizona on Monday Night Football's nightcap game during Week 1. Eli Manning managed 26/39 for 260 net passing yards, two TDs and two interceptions thrown, with two sacks taken for -17 yards during Week 2. They average 249 net passing yards allowed per game to date this year, in the bottom third of the league (22nd), through two contests. Kaepernick may have to do without Davis this week, but he's still got a nice passing matchup here - advantage, San Francisco.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 1 vs DAL (9 / 8 / 99 / 0 rec)

Boldin was Kaepernick's favorite target and absolutely destroyed the Cowboys soft zone coverage. On his first target he juked a guy at the line of scrimmage then ran over another for a seven yard gain. Two plays later he split the zone on a deep post for a 37 yard gain. The rest of the game Boldin spent on short crosses and dig routes underneath the zone that wouldn't come within eight yards of the line of scrimmage. Boldin converted three third downs on those types of routes. Boldin's route running and physical strength was too much for the Cowboys secondary.

2014 Week 2 vs CHI (6 / 2 / 34 / 0 rec)

Boldin didn't see as much action as he did in Week 1 and had as many drops as he did receptions. His best play was a leaping catch for 21 yard gain in between zone coverage in the first quarter. One of his two drops came on a low pass from Kaepernick, who was under pressure, but it's the kind of ball he usually catches.
