2009 Review

anquan boldin header

As has become the norm for the man they call ‘Quan, another injury-plagued season was written in the books by the end of 2009.  Whether it was his hamstring, his ankle, his knee or whatever else, Boldin limped through a fifth non-full season out of his seven in the league, yet still finished with numbers that landed him inside the top-25 fantasy receivers in the game.  It’s truly scary to think what this guy could do if he could only stay fully healthy for an entire year.  He’s probably the strongest wide receiver in the game, as evidenced by his Popeye-esque arms; he has great hands and relishes going over the middle (a rarity in the NFL); and what he does with the ball once it gets in his hands is unquestionably tops in the game.  His 84 catches last year put him square at 9th in the league (11th including TEs), an impressive stat considering the injuries.  However, his TD total of four left fantasy owners with a sour taste in their mouth, to which we say; just imagine what Boldin would do for your team if he was able to play outside the shadow of Larry Fitzgerald……

2010 Fantasy Outlook

Ask, and ye shall receive…  The Arizona Cardinals finally gave Anquan his wish and shipped him off to Baltimore where he signed the hefty contract he’s long been coveting.  It probably wasn’t as long of a deal as he would have liked, but the numbers were enough for him to sign on the dotted line.  Now even though he won’t have one of the most accurate QBs of all time throwing to him anymore (Kurt Warner), Joe Flacco is certainly no slouch, and he can make any throw asked of him across the entire field.  Additionally, Boldin will be considered the #1 WR for the first time since 2003, which has us all interested to see if he can repeat the numbers he put up in his then-rookie campaign (101-1377-8).  If the Ravens move away from their running game just a touch and open up the offense for their star acquisition, it’s very possible ‘Quan can approach those numbers.  We expect a bit less in the receptions and yardage categories, but double-digit TDs are well within his reach.

~ It might take a little while for Boldin to gel with his new QB and WRs, but not enough to affect his overall numbers too much

~ The Ravens are a run-first team, but that should change a bit with a legit WR1 in the mix

~ Derrick Mason will steal some catches away from Boldin, but not nearly as many as Fitz did in Arizona

~ How will signing his big contract affect his all-out play?

~ After playing in Arizona his whole career, moving to a cold-weather stadium might affect his play later on in the year, especially considering his injury-plagued past

Injury Report


Despite being one of the toughest guys in the entire league, he still tends to get injured for at least a couple games each year. His fearlessness and confidence in his strength make him the special player that he is, but also ends up tagging him as an injury risk

Boldin Trying Buffalo

Pyro's take: Boldin will be working out for the Bills on Monday (7/24) “Boldin, 36, led the Lions with 22 red zone targets last season. He had 67 catches and a career-high eight touchdowns, though he averaged a career-worst 8.7 yards per grab (584 yards in total).” The Bills are looking pretty shallow at WR at this point, they’ll probably be looking to have a few other guys in as well.

Fantasy Goo: This could cut into any upside we were hoping for from Zay Jones, although you could argue that they are much different types of receivers that just happen to both work out of the slot. Boldin will certainly vulture some TD’s from the wide receivers, but it absolutely crushes any chance of Charles Clay having any value and probably snakes away a little of Johnathan Williams receiving potential.

Quan has 6 TDs this season

Pyro's take: Can you believe that’s more touchdowns than either T.Y. Hilton or Julio Jones. That’s more TDs than Brandon Marshall and Stefon Diggs combined.

Boldin scores again

Pyro's take: Waiver Wire after Week 6: Boldin had a solid week, catching eight passes for 60 yards with a touchdown. The scores are what makes him a solid play, otherwise he is a five for 50 type of a receiver.

The Anquan and Only

Boldin thrives on contact, and enjoys making a grab with a defender clinging to his back.

Pyro's take: Boldin thrives on contact, and enjoys making a grab with a defender clinging to his back. That was obvious Friday afternoon during practice, when all Matthew Stafford had to do was put the ball in Boldin’s zip code and he’d make the catch, no matter how heavily covered. “Something I’ve always taken pride in,” said Boldin of his ability to grab the ball in traffic.

Fantasy Goo: Let me just come out and say it. I think Anquan Boldin will be the best value for the dollar Lions wide receiver in 2016. When Stafford needs to convert a tough play this year I can see Boldin and Stafford becoming Besties. In week one of this year’s preseason Boldin had one single grab. You should YouTube it. You will see the timeless vintage Anquan determination. Do not get me wrong as Golden Tate will lead the Lions statistically but, considering the late round pick you use on Boldin you can get a little more bang for your buck after the star players are drafted. Boldin is going in the 14th round as of now.

The Lions Starting WRS


Pyro's take: Boldin's was running with the first team as Lions camp opened. His presence certainly helps the locker room. Tim Twentyman has been covering the Lions for a long time. He has gone on record as saying that Tate and Jones will be a 1A and a 1B, with many people surprised at how many targets Jones will end up with when all is said and done. Twentyman wnt on to say: "Jones has already shown to have a nice repertoire of short, intermediate and deep playmaking ability. He and Stafford seem to already be building a nice rapport". Stafford should be throwing a lot this year, and Jones is going to be a big factor in that offense.

Fantasy goo: Personally, I think the arrival of Boldin will detract more from Tate. Last season, Tate had an average depth of target of just 5.8 yards down filed. That is in similar territory to Boldin, whose ADoT was 8.2. Jones works farther down-field as he was targeted 12.8 yards off the line on average. As of now, Tate's ADP in PPR leagues has him creeping into the 3rd round. Boldin is going 13th, but will climb. To me, the best value is Jones who is going in the 8th round.

Saint Boldin?

On FA WR Anquan Boldin: Source said #Saints are making the strongest push to sign him & he loves ex-#49ers, now NO's, WR coach John Morton

Pyro's take: On FA WR Anquan Boldin: Source said #Saints are making the strongest push to sign him & he loves ex-#49ers, now NO's, WR coach John Morton

Fantasy Goo: This is a brilliant choice by New Orleans if this comes to fruition. Drew is lacking a quality veteran receiver. Boldin has lost a couple steps which is okay since Drew can put the ball on him. Anquan would help Cooks and Fleener by keeping defenses from rolling coverage over either on a consistant basis. For fantasy purposes a Boldin signing helps the whole Saints offense.

Eifert to miss early season games

Do the Bengals have any interest in Anquan Boldin?

Pyro's take: Do the Bengals have any interest in Anquan Boldin? I don’t like to proclaim yes or no on anybody that’s out there, but we have not had any discussions with him. We feel pretty good about some young guys that we have in that position group. It’s a position group that’s in flux, and it’s a position group that’s going to have to step up – particularly with Eifert out early in the year.

Fantasy Goo: Fantasy drafters will have a difficult decision placing a value on a tight end that pulled in 13 touchdowns in 2015 who is now recovering from ankle surgery. A tight end catching 13 touchdowns is similar to there being two Gronkowski’s in the NFL. We need to know how many games Tyler will miss. If he misses one or two then he can still be drafted close to his original draft projection. If Tyler is to miss more than two games he starts to become a player to possibly pass on. The tight end position is healthy with plenty of start worthy options you can take late such as Walker, Barnidge, Fleener, Gates and more. Make sure to follow the latest news on Eifert on your fantasy draft day to see where the Bengals are leaning so, you can possibly steal Tyler or save your season by passing on him.

Anquan Boldin safety net


Pyro's take: The feeling is Gabbert will need to ride his veteran wideout -- who is eight receiving yards shy of passing Irving Fryar for 18th on the NFL’s all-time receiving yards list -- with short, safe passes early. -- Paul Gutierrez

This could be a boost to Boldin in PPR leagues

Anquan Boldin still not a full speed


Pyro's take: According to the 49ers Twitter "#49ers updates from Tomsula: Boldin, Hyde & Brock are not full speed yet, more updates this week. Kilgore & Smelter will practice this week."

They will be facing the Seahawks with Gabbert under center, this does not appear like a good time to throw him in your lineup.

Pyro's take: The 49ers were already marked by Vegas to score the lowest points out of any NFL team,. uyet another reason to start the Rams in DFS

11/01/15, 10:24 AM CST by PyromaniacMo

Anquan Boldin was added to the 49ers' injury report on Thursday


Pyro's take: "Boldin was a full participant in Wednesday’s practice before seeing his action dialed back as the 49ers continued to prepare for Sunday’s game against the St. Louis Rams. Boldin is the 49ers' leading receiver with 31 receptions for 372 yards and two touchdowns."

Tough matchup but he continues to be a legitimate wide receiver

Anquan Boldin caught 3-of-7 targets for 39 yards against Seattle


Pyro's take: Anquan Boldin is an ageless wonder, but even wonders can get stifled. This is what happened against Seattle. At the very least he caught a few passes which is more than what the rest of the offense can say.

Boldin close to new contract

Anquan Boldin is getting closer to re-upping with the San Francisco 49ers. He has been in constant negotiations with the 49ers brass since the off-season started. He had a revitalization to his career in San Fran as he posted 85 receptions for 1179 yards and seven touchdowns, just below his best marks of 89-1038-11 while playing for the Cardinals in 2008.

Pyro's take: Boldin's numbers were solid throughout the season, and he is putting up numbers like a youngster. The 49ers offense is not going to falter and with Crabtree finally healthy, there is no reason for Boldin not to put up similar numbers like last year.

Boldin is now entering his 13th season, but he wont be relied on for speed, instead he will be a 49er possession receiver, and the dude has hands like silk.

There is very little doubt the 49ers are going to want to see Anquan putting up numbers in some other jersey.

Crabtree having an effect on Boldin's output

It wasn’t a catch, but a complaint that let Jim Harbaugh know wide receiver Michael Crabtree was feeling comfortable in his 2013 debut on Dec. 1 against St. Louis.

On the sideline, Harbaugh heard a player squawk: “What do I have to do to get the ball?”

His reaction: “Alright, Crab’s back.”

Anquan Boldin is averaging 7.5 catches and 95.5 yards the past two games. In his seven games before Crabtree’s return, Boldin averaged 4 catches and 50.3 yards.

On Sunday, Boldin, who caught six of the eight passes thrown his way for 93 yards, said he benefited from coverages that differed from those Seattle employed in a Week 2 win. Boldin had one catch in that game – a 29-3 yard loss in Seattle.

Said Harbaugh of Crabtree’s impact: “That’s another high-level guy that’s got to be accounted for.”

Pyro's take: Boldin has finally reemerged since his breakout game against the Packers to open the season. Two weeks ago, against the Rams, Boldin had more than 10 targets (14) for the first time since that week 1 game. Over the past two weeks he has 22 targets.

This week the 49ers will square off against the Buccaneers, and that means Darrelle Revis. The good news for Boldin is that Revis should spend most of his day following Crabtree, which means Boldin is the receiver that has the chance to do real damage Sunday.

Boldin practices on limited basis

Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin (ankle, knee) returned to a limited practice on Friday and is being listed as questionable on the team's injury report.

Pyro's take: The Cards are practicing as if 'Quan is not going to be able to go on Saturday, and coach Ken Whisenhunt has already stated that even if he does get out there, he'll likely be limited in the number of snaps he plays. Early Doucet and Steve Breaston should see some serious action for a second week in a row.

Boldin misses final practice before Saturday game

Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin (ankle, knee) missed the final practice of the week today and will officially be a game-time decision come Saturday.

Pyro's take: 'Quan will get out there before the game to test out his ankle and knee, but it's not looking good for the big wideout. If he can go, you know he will, but Steve Breaston and Early Doucet are a good bet to see a bunch of playing time vs. the Saints this weekend.

Boldin inactive for Wild Card game vs. Packers

The Arizona Cardinals have declared wide receiver Anquan Boldin inactive for the playoff game against the Packers today.

Pyro's take: If Boldin could have played, we're sure he would have. He's one of the toughest WRs in the game and doesn't like to let his teammates down. The Packers were looking strong coming into the game before this news, and now might even have the upper hand on the Cards without 'Quan.

Not looking good for Anquan Boldin

Jason La Canfora of NFL.com says that he has information from a source close to the situation that Cardinals wide receiver Anquan Boldin is "highly, highly unlikely to play in Sunday’s wild-card game against the Green Bay Packers" this Sunday.

Pyro's take: This sounds about right to us, as it hasn't looked good for Boldin all week long. He's listed as questionable, and will be checked out right before game time, but the Cards aren't likely to sacrifice the roster spot if his leg doesn't look better than 75 percent.
