Cold10/17/2014 9:45:00 AM
Description: New England running Brandon Bolden was a complete non-factor in Thursday's game against the Jets.
Insight: Fantasy owners who picked him up thinking he would take over the Stevan Ridley role were extremely disappointed with his no carries, one-catch effort.
 
10/14/2014 4:53:00 PM
Description: New England running Brandon Bolden should see an increased workload with the season-ending injury to Stevan Ridley.
Insight: Shane Vereen likely will see more work in the running game along with his receiving, but he's not a workhorse running back and Bolden fits that bill.
 
Cold7/10/2014 10:36:00 AM
Description: New England running Brandon Bolden may not make the Patriots 53-man roster this season, according to a Boston Globe report by Erik Frenz.
Insight: Stevan Ridley and Shane Vereen figure to be the workhorses out of the backfield both running and receiving and should eat up most of departed LeGarrette Blount's 153 carries. The reporter believes James White, Roy Finch and James Develin will make the roster.
 
12/8/2013 1:27:00 PM
Description: Patriots halfback Brandon Bolden wasn't active for Sunday's game versus Cleveland.
Insight: He appears to be a healthy scratch. Shane Vereen, LeGarrette Blount, Stevan Ridley and James Develin are all candidates to see carries with Bolden sidelined for Week 14.
 
12/6/2013 1:45:00 PM
Description: New England running back Brandon Bolden missed Friday's practice after participating both Wednesday and Thursday, according to beat reporter Jeff Howe.
Insight: Bolden was not part of the game plan against Houston and fantasy owners can't count on him to get touches even when healthy. These days, only Shane Vereen is a viable Pats running back.
 
11/18/2013 8:12:00 PM
Description: New England halfback Brandon Bolden will be a healthy scratch Monday night against Carolina.
Insight: Whatever usefulness Bolden may have had has now vanished with Shane Vereen back in the lineup. He shouldn't be owned in fantasy unless one of the Patriots' top backs (Vereen and Stevan Ridley) gets hurt.
 
10/4/2013 2:54:00 PM
Description: Patriots running back Brandon Bolden (knee) was seen limping in practice Thursday, according to NESN's Doug Kyed.
Insight: Bolden and Stevan Ridley are now both in question for Week 5 making LeGarrette Blount a nice fantasy option.
 
9/29/2013 7:53:00 PM
Description: Patriots running back Brandon Bolden (knee) is active for Sunday night's game against the Falcons.
Insight: Bolden has stepped into the Shane Vereen role in New England's offense and had 100 yards from scrimmage on eight touches in Week 3 against the Buccaneers.
 
11/9/2012 4:50:00 PM
Description: Patriots running back Brandon Bolden has been suspended four games for violating the league's policy on performance enhancing substances, according to Paul Perillo of Patriots Football Weekly.
Insight: Bolden hasn't practiced since he suffered a knee injury in Week 6. Shane Vereen has benefited most from Bolden's absence and that should continue.
 
11/8/2012 1:13:00 PM
Description: Patriots running back Brandon Bolden (knee) is likely going to be inactive Sunday against the Bills.
Insight: Bolden hasn't practiced since he suffered a knee injury in Week 6. Shane Vereen has benefited most from Bolden's absence.
 
10/28/2012 12:40:00 PM
Description: Patriots running back Brandon Bolden (knee) is inactive for Week 8 against St. Louis.
Insight: Stevan Ridley will again be backed up by Shane Vereen and Danny Woodhead.
 
10/23/2012 4:24:00 PM
Description: Patriots running back Brandon Bolden (knee) didn't participate in the team's walkthrough which is the first sign that he won't play in Week 8.
Insight: Stevan Ridley would again be backed up by Shane Vereen and Danny Woodhead.
 
10/19/2012 4:33:00 PM
Description: Patriots running back Brandon Bolden won't be available for Sunday's game against the Jets. He's dealing with a knee injury.
Insight: That should free up more carries for Stevan Ridley but as we've learned in the past, you can never really trust Bill Belichick.
 
10/18/2012 3:02:00 PM
Description: New England tailback Brandon Bolden (knee) didn't practice again Thursday and will likely miss Sunday's game against the Jets.
Insight: The absence of Bolden would mean a heavier workload for Stevan Ridley, though Danny Woodhead could also play a role if New England runs a lot of plays from its third down formations.
 
10/14/2012 6:15:00 PM
Description: New England tailback Brandon Bolden was removed from Sunday's game in Seattle after suffering a knee injury.
Insight: His return is questionable. Expect Stevan Ridley to get most of the carries while Bolden is sidelined.
 
10/6/2012 10:38:00 AM
Description: After a stunning performance against Buffalo in Week 4, Patriots running back Brandon Bolden is questionable for Sunday's game versus Denver because of a knee injury.
Insight: Bolden hasn't missed practice all week so we're guessing this is just another one of Bill Belichick's famous macho head games. Ignore the questionable listing and plan to use Bolden as you normally would Sunday when the Broncos come to town.
 
9/30/2012 4:35:00 PM
Description: Patriots halfback Brandon Bolden surprised fantasy owners with a breakout game in Week 4 against Buffalo. He finished the afternoon with 137 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries.
Insight: Five-foot-11, 220-pound undrafted running back out of Ole Miss ... sound familiar? Bolden is like a BenJarvus Green-Ellis clone. There's no way the Patriots will be able to run this efficiently every week but if Bolden can turn in a few more efforts like this, he'll certainly begin to warrant some fantasy consideration.
