Should Boldin be picked up now?

Postby core » Sat Oct 02, 2004 4:53 am

Is it pretty much set in stone that he's back by Week 7?

What do you guys think about picking up injured players? Is 2 weeks too soon?

If you have the bench spot or a guy you can drop to get him, do it. Do it before other people become aware he's there or coming back soon. Last year, Pennington sat on waivers and I grabbed him about 3 weeks before he came back and he was good trade bait for me (forgot what I got for him). This year, I snagged Pittman 1 week before Garner got hurt on a hunch that he may be starting when his suspension was up. If you have the space on your roster, take a chance. If nothing else, guys will trade you for him.

That's my feeling on the matter as well....always good to hear it from someone else.

Thanks.

Agreed. Two weeks is by no means too soon - if he's still available and you can spare the roster spot, I'd grab him sooner rather than later.

Taken from SI:

What is the status of Anquan Boldin? Would you recommend picking him up?

In mid-August, Boldin underwent arthroscopic surgery to repair a fairly moderate meniscus (cartilage) tear in his right knee. He probably won't be able to return until late October or early November. That timetable assumes he suffers no further setbacks when he starts his rehab. It also assumes that Boldin responds more quickly than the normal person. Because ligaments and cartilage tissue has limited vascularization, they take longer to heal than other tissues that are more highly vascularized. Confused? Well, given what I know about these type injuries, it is very doubtful that Boldin will be able to make any fantasy contributions this season. Look elsewhere.

if you have the room, it can hurt to grab him. Although I doubt he'll come crashing back.

You're going to be dropping your #5/6 WR, a guy that wouldn't start under any normal circumstances. Boldin could carry your WR core come playoff time. Definitely take Boldin.

i'm not even sure he'll do particularily well coming back from a serious injury in the situation they're in. it might help fitzgerald more than anyone...
It doesn't need to be in good taste, so long as it tastes good
