Fantasy Impact: Boldin will serve as the third wide receiver behind Golden Tate and Marvin Jones, but he is likely to be the fourth passing option behind Theo Riddick or Eric Ebron, depending on personnel. He won't have much fantasy value but considering his reliability in tough spots, he should boost Matt Stafford's fantasy value.
According to Adam Schefter, the Detroit Lions have signed wide receiver Anquan Boldin to a one-year deal. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)
Fantasy Impact: Boldin had been linked to the Lions over the last few months, so this isn't entirely unexpected. His presence will dampen the value of tight end Eric Ebron and possibly Golden Tate, as well as the sleeper potential of T.J. Jones. He makes for nothing more than a WR4 in a crowded group of receivers, however.
