Fantasy Football Profile: Anquan Boldin
It doesn’t look like Anquan Boldin is going anywhere. At least not any time soon, which is good news for Cardinals fans, and most likely Boldin owners since you don’t know where he’d end up. He’s in a pretty good setup with Kurt Warner at QB running the high-powered offense with Larry Fitzgerald drawing the opposition’s attention. Though he has to share with Fitz, they have shown there are plenty of fantasy goodies for both of them. Though he didn’t finish strong, Boldin had 100+ yards and/or a TD in in eight of his first nine games, including a six-game TD streak. Now Boldin just needs to show he can stay healthy. He has missed multiple games in four of his six years in the league, including four in each of the past two years.
I would roll with him as my #1 WR, but I would prefer him as my #2 if possible considering his injury history. Of course that would mean taking two WRs with my first three picks since Boldin is going early in the third round in fantasy drafts. It may be a good idea to try and land Steve Breaston as insurance if you draft Boldin. Not only does Breaston put up solid numbers in his own right, but he would see a dramatic increase if Boldin went down. My prediction for Boldin is 80 receptions for 1200 yards and 10 TDs.
