RB - NE
Week 8 Outlook
Brandon Bolden hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 79 yards and a touchdown in New England's win over the Jets. He added two carries for zero yards.
Bolden actually led the team in receptions and receiving yards this week. This was a strong bounce-back performance after he recorded merely 33 total yards through his previous two outings. Bolden should serve as a low-end FLEX play in PPR formats next week versus the Chargers.
Brandon Bolden caught all four of his targets for six yards and rushed twice for 25 yards in the Patriots' victory versus the Texans.
Bolden was only able to muster six yards on four receptions today, after going for 51 yards on six catches last week versus the Buccaneers. He should be in for a more productive outing next game against the stingy Cowboys defense, though he remains a low-end FLEX play in deeper formats.
Brandon Bolden caught all six of his targets for 51 yards in the Patriots' defeat to the Buccaneers. He additionally rushed one time for zero yards.
Bolden's six targets were good for second place on the team, behind Jakobi Meyers. Damien Harris and J.J. Taylor combined for just three targets tonight, and the latter was sent to coach Belichick's doghouse after coughing up a fumble in the third frame. This could potentially result in Rhamondre Stevenson being re-activated for next week versus the Texans. Regardless, Bolden appears to have locked up the primary passing back job. He has some FLEX appeal in PPR formats, but will likely need to string together performances like this one to be trusted in fantasy lineups.
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.
