Summary

Boldin signed a 1-year deal with Detroit on the even of training camp, and he'll likely earn a place if the offensive rotation. At 35 years old, he's no longer a sure bet to produce consistently but as complementary player he can do just enough to eat into Golden Tate, Marvin Jones and Eric Ebron's value. (July 27)

Lions | Anquan Boldin working out of the slot (Fri Jul 29, 05:24 PM) - Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin spent a lot of time with the first-team offense with most of his repetitions as the slot receiver Friday, July 29.

Our View: This is not great for Eric Ebron, as two of them would be competing for targets in the middle of the field. T.J. Jones was set up to have the lead for the slot job with less imposing veterans like Jeremy Kerley, Andre Roberts, and Bubba Caldwell as competition, but his road to relevance in deep dynasty leagues is rougher now.

Lions | Anquan Boldin contract update (Thu Jul 28, 02:54 PM) - Updating a previous report, Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin signed a one-year deal with the Detroit Lions worth $2.75 million. The deal includes a $750,000 signing bonus.

Our View: He may not bump Golden Tate and Marvin Jones out of the lineup but could end up as a reliable No.3 receiver and decent WR5 for fantasy owners. We'll see how quickly he and QB Matthew Stafford get on the same page.

Lions | Anquan Boldin to move around (Thu Jul 28, 01:19 PM) - Detroit Lions WR Anquan Boldin will initially see playing time as an outside receiver as well as a slot receiver, according to head coach Jim Caldwell.

Our View: Boldin can pretty much do whatever is asked of him. He's not quite the player he used to be, but Boldin proved last year that he's far from washed up. Boldin should be the Lions' No.3 WR behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones.
