Fantasy Analysis
Week 12 Projections
His hamstring still isn't 100% but he's one of the toughest players in the league. He'll give it a go again but is a risky start due to matchup and his hamstring issue. Consider other options if you have them.
Receiving: 4 Receptions, 58 Yards, 0 TD.

Season Projections
Boldin, who will turn 35 years old during the season, has found the Fountain of Youth in San Francisco as he's posted back-to-back 80-plus catch seasons for the first time since the 2008-9 seasons. Boldin is a savvy veteran who runs precise routes and knows how help his quarterback when things break down. With quarterback Colin Kaepernick working this off-season on becoming a better pocket passer, we expect Boldin to continue to be his favorite receiver when the 49'ers need a veteran to make a play.

Receiving: 75 Receptions, 950 Yards, 7 TD.

Draft Analysis
Round 3, Pick 10
Redzone stud, an elite wideout on an improved offense.
Not exactly the definition of durability over the past few years.
Draft Strategy
I saw 5 good rb2 on the board and 2 wideouts I liked. This was a hard decision between quan and ocho but I just went with my gut. (Contributed by: Bigtyrony)

Round 4, Pick 3
Finally receives his wish to be #1 WR on team and earn the big $$. Time to step up. I believe he will be primary passing target on Ravens team which is solid on the offensive side of the ball
Dealing with young inexperienced QB and Ravens do like to run the ball. Can Boldin survive as WR1 when in Arizona, Fitz was covered by the top CB - now Boldin will draw the attention. I believe he is good enough to support drafting as a WR2.
Draft Strategy
Was targeting WR2 in round 4 after taking Thomas in round 3. Didn't anticipate Benson (RB with no committee) falling to me. I evaluated the teams picking before my next pick in round 5 and saw alot of need for WR's and wasn't happy with who may be available to me in Round 5 for a WR2 if I selected Benson. Since league starts 3 WR's, my need to fill the WR2 spot overrode my desire to secure Benson as my RB3 (flex). (Contributed by: riverjags)

Round 4, Pick 10
Boldin has always been a great WR2 with upside, and this year shouldn't be a whole lot different. Baltimore has a great supporting cast and with Flacco coming into his 3rd year, Boldin's stats should be similar to last year if they decide to open up the offense more.
Baltimore has been a run first offense for a while now and there's uncertainty how productive Boldin will be. And although Flacco is developing good, he isn't Kurt Warner. So there is definitely some risk involved with drafting Boldin. Also Larry Fitzgerald is no longer lined up opposite him, so it may be difficult for him to get open.
Draft Strategy
Treat Boldin as a WR2 with upside in all leagues. If you managed to snag a great WR early, then taking a chance with Boldin isn't a bad idea. (Contributed by: Markulous)
