Anquan Boldin struggles for fantasy owners after dominant Week 1

Cary Edmondson-USA TODAY Sports

Boldin went from a stellar Week 1 stat line to a total dud in Week 2 against the Seahawks.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Anquan Boldin was held to just one catch on Sunday Night Football in a 29-3 loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman put the clamps on Boldin, who had over 200 receiving yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' Week 1 win against the Green Bay Packers.

Fantasy spin: The 49ers traded for Boldin over the offseason, and he became the No. 1 wide receiver by default after Michael Crabtree went down with an injury. The move has paid off so far. It's tough to bash Boldin for getting shutdown by Sherman like so many others have before him.

Boldin isn't quite the player he once was, but he still gets separation consistently and has earned the trust of Colin Kaepernick. Without a ton of weapons in San Francisco's passing game, Boldin should see plenty of targets and remain a solid fantasy option.
