Brandon Bolden signing with Raiders

According to's Ian Rapoport, the Raiders have signed veteran running back Brandon Bolden.

Fantasy Impact

Presumably, it's a one-year deal for Bolden, who re-unites with coach Josh McDaniels and executive Dave Ziegler in Las Vegas. The 32-year-old has spent nine years in the NFL, including eight with the Patriots. Although he's most valuable on special teams, he can also offer backfield depth. In 2021, Bolden had the best year of his career, totaling 85 touches, 631 scrimmage yards, and three touchdowns. Now, he'll operate behind Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake out west. He won't have any fantasy value unless Jacobs or Drake suffer an injury.

Brandon Bolden produces 66 total yards and two scores in Week 18

Brandon Bolden rushed seven times for 46 yards and a touchdown, and caught both of his targets for 20 yards and an additional touchdown in the Patriots' season finale loss to the Dolphins.

Fantasy Impact

Bolden actually led the Patriots in rushing this week, registering a robust 6.6 yards per carry. He notched two touchdowns after sitting on merely one score through 16 games this season. He was able to see additional work this contest, due to Rhamondre Stevenson dealing with a head injury. Bolden will continue playing behind Damien Harris and Stevenson when the Patriots travel to Buffalo for the Wild Card round.

Brandon Bolden (knee) questionable for Week 16

Patriots running back Brandon Bolden is questionable for Week 16 due to a knee injury. He was limited in practice this week.

Fantasy Impact

Bolden has appeared in all 14 games, totaling 172 rushing yards, 334 receiving yards, and one touchdown this season. He has seen an increased workload in 2021 due to James White's season-ending injury. Once again, Bolden ranks as a low-end RB4 versus Buffalo.

Brandon Bolden goes for 44 yards in Week 15

Brandon Bolden caught 3-of-5 targets for 41 yards in the Patriots' loss to the Colts. He added four carries for three yards.

Fantasy Impact

Bolden was consistently involved in the passing game throughout the second half, as the Patriots fell behind 20-0 at halftime. While he ran 27 routes, he finished just fifth in receiving yards. Bolden remains too difficult to trust for fantasy purposes, especially with Damien Harris and/or Rhamondre Stevenson dominating touches when healthy.

Brandon Bolden (knee) active vs. Bills

New England Patriots running back Brandon Bolden is active for Monday Night Football against the Buffalo Bills.

Fantasy Impact

Bolden was listed as questionable for Monday night but is active for the Patriots. Bolden usually sees only a handful of carries but could serve as important depth in what should be a run-heavy game plan. Damien Harris and Rhamondre Stevenson will handle the bulk of the touches.
