Quick fantasy outlook: Anquan Boldin took the league by storm as a rookie in 2003, catching 101 passes for 1,377 yards, and has been a tough, reliable NFL wide receiver ever since. He spent his first seven seasons with the Cardinals, then joined the Ravens for three seasons, where he is coming off of a Super Bowl victory against the 49ers. Indeed, Boldin was a big part of that victory, catching six passes for 104 yards and a touchdown. The 49ers, operating under the maxim, "if you can't beat him, sign him" will make Boldin their number two wideout this season as he lines up across from Michael Crabtree. Boldin, like Crabtree, is a physically imposing receiver who plays with the strength and determination catch the ball in a crowd and hold on after taking a hit. Bolding was never a speed burner, however, and after ten years in the league he could slow down at any time. Moreover, he's in a run-heavy offense and will have to compete for looks with Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis. His upside potential is therefore fairly limited. Boldin is an excellent bye-week fill-in because he's a dependable receiver who can be counted on to score a few points every week, but he lacks the dynamism that fantasy owners should look for as an every-week starter.
