Despite his insistence he wanted to play for a contender, Anquan Boldin signed with the Detroit Lions. (Source:

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.

Boldin, 35, still showed signs that he could be a superb pass-catcher. Despite being hampered by subpar quarterback play and limited to 14 games last season, Boldin still finished as the WR40 and made an impact in the red zone. Boldin's 19 red zone targets ranked 11th in the league least season. Jody Smith | Anquan Boldin Signs with Detroit: What’s his Fantasy Value? - Gridiron Experts [[ T...

Even despite his old age and the likes of Blaine Gabbert throwing him the ball, Boldin showed he can still play some football. With the way he run blocks, he will surely play his way into plenty of snaps for the Lions. Now that Tate is moving into the WR1 void, Boldin should perform at a fantasy relevant level for the 11th straight season.
