Strength of schedule is calculated from the opponents projected fantasy points allowed for the WR position. The best rating is +16 which gives the player the advantage against the defense and indicates an easy opponent, the worst rating is -16 which gives the defense the advantage and indicates a tough opponent.
Boldin should be able to duplicate last season’s numbers as he’ll build a solid rapport with Colin Kaepernick. In fact, there’s even some upside in Boldin as we actually like Kaepernick a lot more than we do Flacco.
Positives Redzone stud, an elite wideout on an improved offense. Negatives 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
Positives 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 Negatives 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).

Round 4, Pick 10
Positives 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. Negatives 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)
