49ers sign Anquan Boldin to two-year deal

CSN Bay Area - [Full Article]

Wide receiver Anquan Boldin, the 49ers MVP in his first season with the club, will be back for a second year with the organization.

Boldin announced via Twitter that he is officially back with the team. The deal is a two-year extension, a source told CSNBayArea.com, and is worth $12 million, according to multiple reports.

Fantasy Impact: 

This is a smart move for the 49ers. Early in the season, Boldin carried the passing game at times but he actually increased his production upon Michael Crabtree’s return. Boldin averaged 4.7-66-.45 without Crabtree and 5.7-83-.43 with Crabtree, so the potential is there for another top 20 season. Boldin finished #15 in both standard and PPR formats. Removing Week 1 (his huge game against the Packers), he was #19 and #20 in standard and PPR, respectively. The signing is probably bad news for Vernon Davis, whose targets dropped from 6.1 per game pre-Crabtree to 4.9 T/G after Crabtree's return.
