RB - NE - OPT-OUT
Week 12 Outlook
RB Brandon Bolden has decided to opt out of the 2020 season.
Bolden becomes the fifth Patriots player to choose to opt out. He joins Dont’a Hightower, Marcus Cannon, Danny Vitale and Najee Toran to voluntarily opt out. Bolden was mainly used on special teams and provided the Patriots depth at RB. The NFL deadline for players to opt out of the 2020 season is August 3rd.
Brandon Bolden rushed once for a 10-yard touchdown in the Patriots' Week 14 loss to the Chiefs.
Bolden is primarily a special-teamer and is unlikely to have a reliable role on offense down the stretch. Leave him on waivers.
Brandon Bolden rushed three times for 23 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 6 win over the Giants. He caught both of his targets for 22 yards.
Bolden only really saw some run on offense because of the absence of Rex Burkhead. Bolden is not a mainstay on offense and is thus not a viable fantasy option moving forward. Don't chase the box score on this game.
Brandon Bolden rushed five times for 13 yards and caught his only target for 29 yards and a touchdown in the Patriots' Week 5 win over the Redskins.
Bolden has rarely been used on offense this much, and found the end zone to put up a nice fantasy line. However, once Rex Burkhead returns, Bolden will likely return to special teams. He is not worth a waiver claim this week.
Brandon Bolden rushed once for a four-yard touchdown in the Patriots' Week 4 win over the Bills.
Bolden touched the ball just once on a gimmicky jet sweep play for a short touchdown, but he is not a normal facet on offense. Don't waste any FAAB or waiver claim priority on Bolden this week.
