Boldin Back in Frisco

49ers re-signed WR Anquan Boldin to a two-year, $12 million contract with $5.5 million guaranteed.
Boldin, 33, capitalized on Michael Crabtree's 11 missed games in 2013 en route to a five-year high in catches (85) and seven-year high in yards (1,179) with seven touchdowns as the 49ers' default No. 1 wideout. Boldin can still physically dominate defensive backs on occasion, but turns 34 in the first half of next season, and last year's opportunity-inflated numbers aren't a reliable indication of what's to come. Boldin's return to San Francisco has more real-life than fantasy impact. He'll be a low-ceiling, borderline WR3 in 2014 re-draft leagues. Look for Crabtree to reemerge as the Niners' No. 1 wideout. If the season began today, the 49ers' top three receivers would be Crabtree, Boldin, and promising sophomore Quinton Patton, with Vernon Davis at tight end.

*My Take - Not a huge surprise that Boldin signed again with the Niners, but his value is more in his intangibles than it is as a fantasy WR.  Sure he is serviceable, but not anyone who you need to look at in the early rounds.  I want him on my real team, but can take him or leave him for fantasy purposes.  Niners should be in the mix for a SB run again in 2014.
