Anquan Boldin WR SF 5 Hrs

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.

Boldin caught 7-of-9 targets for 94 yards and a touchdown in Monday's 31-17 win over the Rams.

Boldin led the team in targets, receptions and receiving yards, though Michael Crabtree was close behind with eight targets, which only netted him a 3-49-1 receiving line. Boldin and Crabtree have essentially been co-No. 1 receivers to this point, with Boldin owning a 32-397-1 receiving line on 45 targets, while Crabtree has a 28-295-3 line on 44 targets. The result is that both receivers are decent options in most leagues, but neither is shaping up as a potential star.

Boldin caught four passes on eight targets for 72 yards in Sunday's 22-17 win over Kansas City.

Boldin is still searching for his first touchdown of the season, although he's been active in the passing game, with 36 targets in five games. Despite seeing a healthy number of looks in general, Boldin hadn't really done much, since his eight-catch, 99-yard performance in Week 1, so it was encouraging to see him produce Sunday. Next week, he'll travel to St. Louis, which has been stingy against the pass so far this year.

Boldin grabbed five passes (seven targets) for 62 yards in Sunday's win over Philadelphia.

Despite the modest stat line, Boldin actually led San Francisco in receiving yardage, and tied for the team lead in receptions. Vernon Davis left the game with a back injury, so Boldin would probably see an uptick in targets, if the tight end missed any action.

Boldin caught six passes for 36 yards in Sunday's 23-14 loss to Arizona.

Boldin had a relatively quiet day against his former team, outside of PPR formats. He has still yet to find the end zone in 2014, and while he will definitely have useful games, there are just too many mouths to feed in the 49ers' passing game to get consistent production from the 12-year veteran.

Boldin caught just two passes for 34 yards in Sunday's loss to Chicago.

Last week was Boldin's turn, this week it was Michael Crabtree receiving the lion's share of the targets. This is the risk fantasy owners run when start San Francisco wideouts; the offense is a run-first scheme that spreads the ball around when they decide to pass. He will definitely have his strong fantasy days, but games like Sunday's are to be expected for Boldin as well. He may have a larger role against the Cardinals next week if Vernon Davis (ankle) isn't able to go.
