Colston comes with Pros and Cons. The major con on Colston is how many mouths Drew Brees has to feed. The major Pro is Drew Brees has a lot of food to feed. Colston is not the #1 WR on this team, he may even be the #3 option when you consider Jimmy Graham should have a bigger role in 2013, and Lance Moore could arguably be #2 because he does all the quick Yard patterns. Still, Colston will get his plays. Health is always a factor, and having a big talented Saints WR is a good thing.Anquan is going to SF to win them a Superbowl, after being the largest reason why they lost it in 2013. Anquan was a BEAST against the 49ers defense tearing down pass after pass against any and all coverage they gave him. With Crabtree out for the season, look for Anquan to be the main man for Kapernick in 2013. Vernon Davis will have his moments, but Boldin will be the man.  
Jordan Tozzi
Legion Report
With head coach Sean Payton back this season, look for the Saints Offense to excel. The Saints Defense is looking bad, again, which is great news for Brees and his Number 1 WR, Colston.Boldin is a limited WR due to his age, but with Crabtree likely out for the season in San Francisco, look for Boldin to receive the majority of the Targets.

Mr.Consistency when it comes to year-to-year stats. In 2012, posted his 6th season in 7 years including, 4th straight with 1,000-plus yards and at least 7 touchdowns. BUT a closer look at his 2012 numbers might sway your decision as a No.1 WR. Posting 10-plus Fantasy points in just 6 games in 2012. There were 8 weeks where he was held UNDER 80 yards with no touchdowns. He's worth drafting as a high-end No. 2 Fantasy WR in Round 4.Better when it matters, is the phrase I like to use for Boldin.  
Derek Lofland
Fantasy Football Maniax
The Falcons were ninth against fantasy receivers this year, but I think they could easily drop in that department this year and the Saints offense is always able to move the ball at home against the Falcons.The Packers were a mediocre 17th against fantasy receivers last year and Boldin should be targeted a lot for the 49ers with their lack of an established second receiver.  
Kevin Roberts
Breaking Football
This should be a shootout so Saints' top WR has to be in top-15 for week 1.Packers #1 CB should do an OK job on him, but he should be heavily targeted.  
Chet Gresham
The Fake Football
Colston caught 9 passes and a touchdown last season against the Falcons and should have trouble being a factor this week. His foot issue seems to be manageable and week one is the time it should be most manageable.Boldin is a safe outlet for Kaepernick, but his upside is limited due to his age. He'll need a touchdown to be relevant and that's not a Given.
