Boldin caught just 2-of-9 targets Sunday, but scored a 76-yard touchdown in the win over Arizona. His other catch went for five yards.

Boldin shook free early in the game for the second longest touchdown of his career, although he was quiet afterwards. Even still, Boldin went over 1,000 receiving yards for the second straight year, something he hadn't done since 2008 and 2009. Despite being 34-years old, it appears as though Boldin can still produce at a respectable level, even though he lacks any speed whatsoever.

Boldin was targeted a team-high nine times in Saturday's overtime loss to the Chargers, finishing with seven catches for 61 yards.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick threw for just 114 yards, so Boldin did a good job of gobbling up what little receiving yardage was available (only one other 49er had more than nine yards). After a strong season, Boldin is sputtering to the finish, averaging just 39 yards per game over his last four contests.

Boldin caught 2-of-4 targets for 23 yards in Sunday's loss at Seattle.

Boldin had a drop, but was also badly overthrown by Colin Kaepernick on a wide-open pass at one point in the second half. Boldin has been the 49ers best receiving option this year, but he's been awful in two games against the Seahawks, catching 5-of-9 targets for a measly 41 yards. He'll look to rebound Saturday against the Chargers.

Boldin caught 4-of-9 targets for 54 yards in Sunday's loss at Oakland.

Boldin, who dropped at least one pass, was slightly outperformed by Michael Crabtree (nine receptions for 56 yards Sunday). In general, Boldin has been the 49ers most reliable weapon this season, but he's been quiet the last two games. He might not get back on track next week, as he'll have to deal with Richard Sherman and the Seahawks on the road.

Boldin caught 3-of-5 targets for 18 yards in Thursday's 19-3 loss to the Seahawks.

Coming off a 9-137-1 line against the Redskins, Boldin had to deal with a secondary on the other end of the spectrum. It's hard to make much of a judgement on his individual performance, as the San Francisco offense was terrible on the whole, due in large part to Colin Kaepernick's struggles. Of course, even with Kaepernick suffering through a disappointing season, Boldin has easily been the 49ers' most reliable offensive skill-position player. He should bounce back, at least to some extent, in a favorable Week 14 matchup with the Raiders.

Boldin caught 9-of-11 targets for 137 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 17-13 win over the Redskins.

Boldin scored early in the first quarter on a 30-yard touchdown, but didn't slow down from there. He continues to outplay fellow WR Michael Crabtree, who caught 5-of-7 targets for 58 yards. Boldin will have a stiff in a short week, facing the Seahawks on Thanksgiving.

Boldin had a team-high five catches on six targets for 53 yards Sunday against the Giants.

After coming into the game with back-to-back outings with over 90 yards and a touchdown, Boldin tied a season-low with his six targets, while watching fellow starting wideout Michael Crabtree catch three of eight targets for 85 yards and a touchdown. While Boldin doesn't have a great matchup from a yardage standpoint in Week 12, he could get back in the end zone, as the Redskins allow the eighth-fewest passing yards per game this season, but only two teams have allowed more passing touchdowns.

Boldin has six catches on 15 targets for 95 yards and a touchdown Sunday against the Saints.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick really struggled with his accuracy Sunday, completing only 14 of 32 passes, of which nearly half went to Boldin. That's now back-to-back games for Boldin with at least 90 yards and a touchdown, something he's actually done in three of the last four games. With tight end Vernon Davis struggling through a few different injuries (and others speculating he may not be giving his full effort) and wideout Michael Crabtree doing very little himself, Boldin has become the best and most consistent fantasy option in the 49ers' passing attack. Up next is a Week 11 matchup against a Giants defense allowing the fifth-most passing yards per game this season.

Boldin caught 6-of-7 targets for 93 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's 13-10 loss to the Rams.

Boldin easily led all San Francisco pass catchers in receptions and receiving yardage, while scoring the team's lone touchdown. He's posted a couple of duds this year, but he's actually been the 49ers' most productive weapon in the passing game. He'll face the Saints on the road next week, in a potential shootout.

Boldin caught 7-of-10 targets for 50 yards in Sunday's 42-17 loss to the Broncos.

Boldin crucially dropped what should have been an eight-yard touchdown in the third quarter, and he was mostly bottled up for short gains. All of his receptions came before Blaine Gabbert replaced Colin Kaepernick, but only two of the catches resulted in first downs. While Boldin led the team in both receptions and targets, the 49ers also made frequent use of Michael Crabtree, Stevie Johnson and Brandon Lloyd. With Boldin and Crabtree essentially co-No. 1 receivers, neither has produced a 100-yard game or multi-touchdown performance this season.
