In an interview with Bleacher Report, Anquan Boldin endorsed new HC Jim Tomsula, stated that he missed playing defense (he had played in high school), and perhaps most importantly stated that “I'll finish the game on my own terms," he said. "I don't want to overstay my welcome. If I'm not playing at a high level, I will leave on my terms. But I will also say for myself that when I do retire, I will have a lot left in the tank.” (Source: 49ers.com
Fantasy Impact: Boldin sure has plenty left in the tank, posting his first back-to-back 80 catch seasons at age 33 and 34 in 2013 and 2014. While he may not be for long, look for Boldin to exceed his current ADP (he's the 47th WR off the board as of this update) due to the fact that he's one of the craftiest/nastiest wideouts in the NFL, and the 49ers will be forced to throw due to the fact their defense has taken a major step back.

When asked about new head coach Jim Tomsula, the veteran WR stated “I think it’s a good move..he’s a guy that everybody’s familiar with. [and] he’s a guy that has a pretty good feel for the locker room, so I think it was a good move.” Boldin Also said that “I think (Tomsula will) be the same way, but he has a pretty good feel for the locker room, not saying that coach Harbaugh didn’t because I feel like he did as well. I don’t think coach Tomsula will be as tough as coach Harbaugh was.” (Source: SFgate.com
Fantasy Impact: Boldin has experienced a mini-rennisance of sorts since arriving in San Fran in 2013, posting his first back-to-back 80 catch seasons since 08-09. While he's never going to be the pick that wins your league, Boldin is healthy and should be a safe pick to deliver value in 2015, and maybe could see a slight uptick with the possible departure of fellow 49er WR MIchael Crabtree, and improved QB play from Colin Kaepernick.

Boldin only had two catches but he made them count for 81 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Impact: Anquan was far and away the best and most productive receiver on the 49ers this season. Who knows if he'll be as productive next year as he was this year. There are going to be a lot of changes on the offensive side of the ball, it will be interesting to see how it effects Boldin.

Anquan Boldin again leads the way for the 49ers, reeling in seven of his nine targets for 61 yards. (Source: CBSSports.com
Fantasy Impact: Boldin's frequency of targets and his propensity to reel in everything thrown his direction have buoyed his fantasy value in PPR leagues this season. With a new offense coming in next season, Colin Kaepernick's favorite target should prove to be productive for the 49ers in what may very well be his last season.

Fantasy Impact: Like most of the 49ers offense, Anquan Boldin failed to produce a meaningful statline vs. the Seahawks Sunday. He gets the less-stout Chargers defense next weekend and remains a low-end WR option in PPR leagues. The 49ers offense looks less overwhelmed lately & should be able to move the ball vs. San Diego.
By Chad Satterfield, 49ers Correspondent, Mon, Dec 8th 12:13pm EST
Boldin caught 4 passes for 54 yards and zero touchdowns.
Fantasy Impact: I don't put any blame on Boldin for his poor outing. Most of the blame goes on the offensive line, Kaepernick and the play calling. With the "offense" being lost this season, Boldin is no more than a WR3 in PPR down the playoff stretch.

Boldin ended today's win with 9 receptions, 137 yards and 1 touchdown.
Fantasy Impact: Kaepernick didn't seem to look anywhere else, as Boldin was always open and is the most consistent player on the 49ers right now. The 49ers offense has been pretty terrible as of late, but Boldin seems to be the only bright spot. Anquan could be a high end WR2 down the stretch.

Boldin caught 5 passes for 53 yards against the Giants. The 49ers offense has been sputtering as of late, but Anquan is the most reliable weapon they have.
Fantasy Impact: Boldin gives the 49ers exactly what they ask of him. He makes big catches in big moments. He was looked to when the 49ers needed to move the chains. Next week he has a tasty matchup against the Redskins. He's going to have a big Week 12.

Anquan Boldin was on the receiving end of a massive 15 target day Week 10, he turned those targets into 6 catches 95 yards and a touchdown.
Fantasy Impact: Boldin tied with Calvin Johnson for the weekly lead in targets, besting his previous season high by 5. Boldin now has two consecutive games of 90+ yards and a TD, and looks to make it three against the Giants in Week 11.

Boldin was heavily targeted by his QB, and put up 6 receptions for 93 yards and 1 touchdown.
Fantasy Impact: The Mr. Consistent honors used to be Frank Gore's, but now it has passed to Boldin. Week in and week out, Boldin always puts up decent numbers in the stat sheet. He's a decent WR3 for the rest of the year.
By Aaron Cross, 49ers Correspondent, Mon, Sep 8th 11:22pm EDT
Boldin had a great game against a depleted Cowboys secondary by turning in 8 receptions for 99 yards.
Fantasy Impact: Boldin was very underrated coming into the season, but showed off his great hands and rapport with Colin Kaepernick. He gathered the most targets, yards, and receptions and will be a borderline WR2 all season long because of his experience and chemistry with Kaepernick.
