49ers - [Full Article]

The San Francisco 49ers announced they have signed wide receiver Brandon Lloyd to a one-year deal.

Fantasy Impact:

Lloyd was out of football in 2013 and doesn't have a reputation for being a good locker room guy. The 49ers are looking for receiver depth behind Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin.

49ers sign Anquan Boldin to two-year deal
Monday, March 3, 2014, 4:11pm

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.

49ers, Anquan Boldin working on multi-year extension

CSN Bay Area - [Full Article]

The 49ers acquired wide receiver Anquan Boldin in a trade with the Baltimore Ravens and paid him a $6 million salary. Now, the sides are negotiating a multi-year extension that could prevent Boldin from being available when free agents can begin negotiating with other teams on March 8.

Fantasy Impact:

Boldin actually increased his production upon Michael Crabtree’s return. He averaged 4.7-66-.45 without Crabtree and 5.7-83-.43 with Crabtree in the lineup. The 49ers are likely to re-sign him, but he’ll probably be a solid fantasy WR3 wherever he lands.

Percy Harvin not expected to play in regular season
Wednesday, December 18, 2013, 10:43am

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Seahawks regard WR Percy Harvin as a long-term, year-to-year asset. While he hasn’t paid dividends yet, the Seahawks have been better than fine without him. If he can contribute in the postseason, it’ll be an added benefit.

With the Seahawks likely to handle their business at home in the postseason, the ultimate goal should be to have a full package of plays for Harvin ready to go for Super Bowl XLVIII, the next time they’ll have to leave CenturyLink Field after closing out the season with back-to-back home games against the Cardinals and Rams.

Fantasy Impact:

When it comes to players returning from long-term injuries, for every Michael Crabtree there's a Percy Harvin. It doesn't look like he will help owners this year, though his recent setback doesn't make it much of a surprise. Doug Baldwin will continue to be a Sneaky Start in his absence. He is the #22 WR since taking over as a starter after Sidney Rice's knee injury.
