Boldin caught four of six targets for 40 yards Sunday against the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

Despite Marvin Jones (thigh) being unavailable to play, Boldin did not see an increased share of the Lions' passing game Sunday. Rather, TJ Jones and Andre Roberts took on expanded roles. Thus, it seems the veteran remains a touchdown-dependent fantasy option and will look to find pay dirt for a seventh time this season next week against the Bears.

Boldin caught seven of nine targets for 69 yards and one touchdown Thursday against the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Boldin continued his savvy ways Thursday, again getting free for a red-zone score on a broken-down play. His nine targets ranked second on the team for a second week in a row as well. Should this level of involvement persist, Boldin could make for a sneaky play against New Orleans' 30th-ranked passing defense in Week 13.

Boldin received nine targets and caught six for 37 yards Sunday against Jacksonville.

EDGE Analysis

Boldin only trailed running back Theo Riddick in targets, but wasn't able to gain many yards and ended up as the Lions' fourth-most productive receiver. The veteran's yards-per-reception clip was predictably pedestrian yet again and Sunday was only the second time all season he paced his team in looks. Per usual, only expect Boldin to make a meaningful fantasy contribution going forward if he's able to get into the end zone.

Boldin caught two of four targets for 10 yards and one touchdown Sunday against the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Boldin now has five scores in nine games, but hasn't been the recipient of much passing-game attention since TE Eric Ebron returned from injury. Now, the veteran appears to have settled in behind Ebron, Golden Tate and Marvin Jones in the pecking order, positioned right next to RB Theo Riddick as Matthew Stafford's favorite check-down options. His role still maintains fantasy relevance, although Boldin admittedly doesn't possess the upside he once did as a younger player.

Boldin caught one of three targets for four yards Sunday against the Texans.

EDGE Analysis

With RB Theo Riddick and TE Eric Ebron back in the fold, Boldin wasn't nearly the factor he had been the previous two games; his three targets matched his season-low from Detroit's season opener, while his one reception and four receiving yards each marked his lowest totals as a member of the Lions. Especially considering how Boldin has been most prominently used as either a check-down option or red-zone threat this season, the two areas that perfectly align with each of Riddick's and Ebron's respective specialties, it appears the veteran's time as one of QB Matthew Stafford's primary targets could be nearing a close, barring re-injury to one of Detroit's younger playmakers.

Boldin caught three passes for 28 yards and one touchdown Sunday against the Redskins.

EDGE Analysis

With the Lions trailing by three with 16 seconds to go, QB Matthew Stafford found Boldin on an 18-yard dart to win the contest. The score represents Boldin's fourth on the season, though his yardage total remained modest. It may be a challenge for the veteran to score for a third-consecutive game next week against the Texans' second-ranked pass defense.

Boldin secured eight of nine targets for 60 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Rams.

EDGE Analysis

Entering the game with 13,379 career receiving yards, Boldin passed Torry Holt for 15th-most in league history Sunday on an eight-yard gain in the first quarter. After that, he showcased his veteran savvy on an 11-yard catch on third-and-one before coming down with his third touchdown of the season at the start of the second half. By game's end, Boldin only trailed Golden Tate in targets, although it should be noted TE Eric Ebron (knee) wasn't available to play. Next up is a Week 7 home game against the Redskins.

Boldin (ankle) is active for Sunday's contest against the Rams, Dave Birkett of the Detroit Free Press reports.

EDGE Analysis

In an offense sans Eric Ebron (ankle/knee), Theo Riddick (ankle), and Dwayne Washington (ankle), Boldin won't have the usual competition for targets. While his measly 8.8 YPC is exactly intriguing, the preceding should result in a fruitful outing.

Boldin (ankle) was a full practice participant Friday and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Rams, Tim Twentyman of the Lions' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Boldin increased his participation throughout the week, moving on from Wednesday's absence to a limited showing Thursday. With no suggestion his ankle injury is serious, he figures to occupy his usual role in the slot against a banged-up St. Louis defense. The 36-year-old Boldin rarely breaks off big gains and is only averaging 8.8 yards per reception, but he's an intriguing target this week on the basis of possible volume alone. The Lions won't have TE Eric Ebron (ankle/knee) or RB Theo Riddick (ankle), and RB Dwayne Washington (ankle) could be absent or limited, leaving little in the way of receiving options beyond the team's top three wideouts. While he probably won't pile up yardage, Boldin should get plenty of short targets, making him especially useful -- at least temporarily -- in PPR format.

Boldin (ankle) was limited at Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

The Lions may just be easing the veteran wideout into Week 6 preparations, as Boldin avoided the injury report to this point in the season. Boasting a 75 percent catch rate (21 receptions on 28 targets) to date, he's safely been the third or fourth option at Matthew Stafford's disposal in 2016.
