Best Ball Value Watch: Week of August 7

Football is BACK! As of this minute, nine preseason games have been played and three more a queued up for tonight. It feels good to have the players back on the field and on our TV screens, even if the games don’t really mean anything yet. Let’s get to this week’s Must Buys and Avoids. As always, you can follow ADP yourself using the RotoGrinders Draft ADP tool.


Anquan Boldin (ADP: 213 Overall, WR84) – Anquan Boldin signed a one-year, $2.75 million contract with the Buffalo Bills last week. The venerable receiver who has never had fewer than 55 catches in a season and scored eight touchdowns for Detroit in his age 36 campaign last year immediately became one of my favorite late rounds targets when he signed. Boldin brings much needed experience to the Bills receiver corps, and I expect him to quickly develop into one of Tyrod Taylor’s most trusted targets, as he has done for several quarterbacks over the past ten-plus years. While Boldin isn’t likely to generate many explosive weeks, he’s a good bet to provide at least a handful of starter-caliber performances over the course of the season, making him a great value where you can currently get him, with your last pick.
