Patriots | Brandon Bolden part of playoff record

Sat, 10 Jan 2015 17:56:08 -0800

New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden led the team with just seven rushing yards in a 35-31 win over the Baltimore Ravens in the divisional-round playoff game Saturday, Jan. 10, and the team's 14 total rushing yards set a record for the fewest by a team in a playoff win.

Fantasy Tip: The lack of rushing yards can largely be attributed to the fact that New England fell behind by two touchdowns early and played from behind most of the game. That being said, trusting any player in the Patriots' backfield remains a risk for fantasy owners.

Patriots | New England RB split unclear

Sun, 28 Dec 2014 08:57:13 -0800

New England Patriots RBs Brandon Bolden or James White could be featured in the offense with Jonas Gray (ankle) inactive Sunday, Dec. 28.

Fantasy Tip: Shane Vereen could be limited with home-field locked up, and the Buffalo Bills present a tough matchup. We'd avoid this situation altogether.

Patriots | Shane Vereen plays 62 snaps

Mon, 24 Nov 2014 09:17:34 -0800

New England Patriots RB Shane Vereen had a team-high 62 snaps in the team's Week 12 win over the Detroit Lions, but RB LeGarrette Blount had 17 snaps and two touchdowns in his team debut, while RB Brandon Bolden had just two snaps.

Fantasy Tip: Vereen is the safest bet for fantasy football production on the Patriots, especially in PPR leagues like FantasyScore, but the addition of Blount clearly clouds New England's backfield picture, and Bill Belichick can't be predicted on a week-to-week basis.

Patriots | Brandon Bolden to be more involved?

Mon, 13 Oct 2014 15:06:20 -0700

New England Patriots RB Brandon Bolden was the fill-in for RB Stevan Ridley (knee) in Week 6 as the "big back." Bolden has been a core special teams player this year, and something will have to give if he's to start being more of a factor at running back with Ridley out for the year. RB Jonas Gray could be promoted from the practice squad.

Fantasy Tip: Shane Vereen and James Wright will immediately be thrust into heavier workloads with Ridley out, but Bolden could be the surprise back in short-yardage and goal-line situations, which would give him some flex appeal in fantasy leagues. Make sure to consider adding Bolden off the waiver wire this week if you own Ridley or need help at running back.

Patriots | Brandon Bolden may be on the bubble

Fri, 20 Jun 2014 12:28:01 -0700

New England Patriots RB James White may put RB Brandon Bolden on the bubble for a roster spot, according to a source. RB Roy Finch and TE Justin Jones could also make the team as undrafted rookies, while either RBs Stephen Houston or Jonas Gray could make the team in RB LeGarrette Blount's previous role.

Fantasy Tip: None of these guys are fantasy relevant yet. We'll see if they actually make the final roster before gauging their fantasy value.
