Anquan Boldin: Game-Time Decision

If you’re an Anquan Boldin owner, I’m sure you were preparing to hear the phrase Game-Time Decision regarding Boldin’s availability for Sunday’s clash with the Giants. He injured his ankle in last week’s win over Seattle and was held out of practice today.
He was able to play, albeit sparingly, in the second half of last week’s game, which leads me to believe he’ll at least make an attempt to play this week. That, and the fact that he is a tough, physical receiver.
The problem, however, is his game is the Sunday Night game, which makes it hard to gamble on plugging him into your lineup. If you don’t have a Steve Breaston, Mario Manningham, Hakeem Nicks, Jeremy Maclin, or Santana Moss it would be hard to depend on Boldin this week because if he can’t go, his replacement options are limited.
Stay tuned as this story develops, but for now I’d make alternate plans at WR this week.
