I don't like what I see from Boldin. He was banged up before gettig hurt more and may not recover enough to fulfill the price his name recognition merits. Megatron is in the same boat, maybe healthier but on a far less productive team.
You may want to consider some WRs who are viewed as flops. Steve Smith of the Panthers, Santana Moss, Santonio Holmes, and Bowe are all highly skilled WRs who have not made their owners happy and may be undervalued. For as poor as their seasons have been these guys are still amongst the top 100 scoring in PPR yet have enough question marks to be tradeable at a price that may not bust you.
There is a lot of risk in trading for WRs right now, guess right and you could be a contendah. Wrong, well we've all been there.
Before Megatron got hurt, he was averaging about 10 points a game and was on average targeted 11 times per game. A healthy Megatron is among the elite WR's regardless of what team he's on. How do I know this? He had 1331 yards and 12 TD's last year on a less talented DET team. His schedule, is also one of the most WR friendly in the AFC. Boldin, if he get's some rest, might not fulfill his ADP, but for the price I got him for (Holmes for Boldin), I'd be happy for 70% of his possible production. It's actually quite funny you mentioned those names becuase I recently traded Smith(CAR) and Holmes for Megatron and Boldin in two different package deals. I actually bought on Smith two weeks ago, got some nice production out of him, then shipped him out due to what I believe is limited upside (run first mind-set, Joke Delhomme, no #2 WR to be seen). Also, IMO, Holmes as been lost in the shuffle. When Mike Wallace is only four fantasy points behind Holmes, you know that rings true. Ward is the #1, Miller is the #2, Holmes and Wallace are 3A and 3B. The only thing saving him at this point is his upside.
